RESULT!: A Big Easy bet... but not on Ernie
If I was in charge of a giant financial corporation the last thing Id want to call it would be Nedbank - well, the last apart from Northern Rock. Youd get more respect from customers if you were called Piggy, like my missus. Yet the Nedbank Challenge, sponsor
ed by the giant South African bank, is one of the most respected tournaments on the golf calendar. Respected by golfers 2020管家婆一肖中特 because the prize-money is mouthwat
ering; respected by punters because its normally dead easy in the 12-m
an field to pick the winner. And thats nuff respect. I love tournaments featuring Ernie Els because a) hes always favourite, and b)
he never wins. He shares the same nickname - the Big Easy - as Abi Titmus and just like Abi should be laid all night - on Betfair.
No one has cost me m
ore money over the years than Els, not even my missus
Piggy. This is his 16th tilt at the Sun City track - Colin Montgomerie pulled out when he realised it wasnt after all called Bun City - and hes only won it three times, the last
time in 2002. Thats not the kind of record you want from a 7-2 favourite. Second favourite at 7-1 is Adam Scott. The Australian is a prodigious driver - he never goes anywhere without his car - but he wont be helped by the Sun City rough, which I hear is gonna a be extra-tough. And if you think thats rough, tough.
There can only be one winner of this event - unless its a tie and they decide to share it - and luckily I know his name. Henrik Stenson. Get on at 12-1 on Betfair. Nedbank Challenge, starts tomorrow (Betfair): 7-2 E Els, 7-1 A Scott, J Rose, 10-1 R Goosen, 12-1 H Stenson, R Sabbatini, 13-1 T Immelman, 14-1 L Donald, 15-1 G Ogilvy, 21-1 N Fasth, 23-1 S Cink, 28-1 C Schwartzel.
