Ladbrokes offer top price on the Barclays front five golfers

| 24.08.2011

The front five golfers in the betting for The Barclays will be on offer at a top price with Ladbrokes.

The New Jersey tournament begins later this week with the bookies keen to lay the biggest names in world golf.

Luke Donald is the 12/1 market leader as he bids to confirm his position as the world number 1 but Ladbrokes are already hoping for an upset.

Spokesman David Williams said: “We’re bracing ourselves for a deluge of bets on the biggest names at the top end of the betting. If it goes to form in New Jersey we’re in trouble.”
