Golf betting excitement continues to grow for the greatest event on the golf odds schedule each year. The Masters this year runs April 5-11 with Angel Cabrera as defending champion. The Master’s is a golf betting tradition that cannot be rivaled or duplicated by any other tournament, or for that matter, by any other sport.
It is a tradition rich event with strict protocol and with a reverence and respect given to it by everyone involved that is unlike anything else in golf gambling.
Adding to the golf betting excitement of this year’s Masters will be the return of Tiger Woods, who has been in virtual hiding since last November when his extra marital affairs came to light along with all of the sordid details and gossip.
Woods has already been practicing at Augusta in preparation for the Masters and will be a heavy golf betting favorite despite the fact that it will be his first tournament of the 2010 season.
The Masters is coming off a thrilling playoff last year in which Cabrera won after Kenny Perry imploded in the final holes after having what seemed to be an insurmountable golf betting lead. This prestigious golf betting event is one of four major events on the PGA Tour and is worth 600 FedEx Cup points and has a total purse of $7,000,000.
The famed Augusta course is a par 72 with a total distance of 7435 yards. Most important to the players involved, however, is the coveted Green Jacket that is awarded to the winner in a ceremony that takes place at historic Butler Cabin.
There is no dollar amount or FedEx Cup point total that can match the thrill of winning golf’s greatest event. Jack Nicklaus is the all time leading winner of the Masters with six green jackets to his credit. Arnold Palmer and Woods have won the event four times apiece while Phil Mickelson has 2 green jackets.
