Mahan hunting down a place in the top ten of golf rankings
HUNTER MAHAN is being heavily backed for success at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, according to Ladbrokes.
Mahan earns a quote of 25/1 and a win in Florida this weekend would propel him into the men’s world top ten and the prospect of which is causing punters to pile into the American’s chances.
Tiger Woods is the 7/1 favourite for victory following his good performance in the Tavistock with Justin Rose – who is also proving a popular bet with punters at 16/1.
Sergio Garcia (20/1) is looking a good each-way choice along with Bubba Watson at 25/1. The firm will refund losing pre-tournament bets if your chosen player is beaten in a play-off.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Woods’ putting has increased significantly over the last few weeks which makes him a danger. Hunter Mahan is creeping up the rankings and it won’t be long before he cracks in to the top ten.”
