Olympic Golf Free Picks 8/10
Olympic Golf is starting on the 8/10 with concerns about mosquitoes and giant rodents roaming the course. We hope you are all enjoying these RIO Games from your friends at HRWager. We have the #5 and #6 players in the world in the field but the odds comparing the two are nowhere near the same. So let us celebrate this historic occasion as it has been well over a century since golf has been seen at the Summer Games.
Olympic Golf Free Picks : Bubba and Henrik
Henrik has been the hottest golfer that has made it down to RIO. A horde of high ranked golfers declined to make the trek due to concerns over the Zika Virus. Sad news for Bubba Watson fans as he is in the top ten but it is Sergio Garcia that is getting high regard for championship futures here. The main man from Spain has top fives in the both the US and British Opens. Let us see who is a good heads up investment for this somewhat weak field of 60 golfers here.
New Golf Course
Par 71 with 7,128 yards with giant Capybaras. These animals are allowed in normal times to live on the course. It will not be a factor in the play but we should get a chuckle or two if we see one roaming in the front group for the players on the tee. Rumor has it that this course invites birdies and has a bit of poison in some tricky traps for high scores on some holes. Justin Rose excels at strokes gained from tee to green. He is embracing his role on team Great Britain. While being in a little slump, he will be pitted against players of lesser talent. Take Justin Rose heads up over the course of the tournament for a profit advantage.
Golf Channel has coverage starting at 6:30 AM on Thursday. They will have the sole coverage over traditional means. NBC will have streaming options also for this event. Who will be on that podium? For a longshot, opt for Emiliano Grillo for a top three and most certainly in heads up options. Enjoy the spectacle of Olympic Golf and we will see you on Friday here at HRWager.
