PGA Tips: Masters latest
Masters time is almost here and there are just a few more hours left if you want to take advantage of any of the Masters betting special offers that are out there. With just over three hours to go until the Masters tees-off here’s a quick re-cap of the betting deals to keep an eye on.
William Hill offered Rory McIlroy at 9/1 for a few hours yesterday, with the Ulsterman now sitting at a good value 13/2 with William Hill. Keep an eye out during the day, and on our twitter for any breaking specials that the bookies may offer on the Masters.
In reaction to Paddy Power’s Masters money-back special Ladbrokes have reacted with a Masters promotion of their own. On a similar theme to Paddy, Ladbrokes have announced that if Tiger Woods wins at Augusta they will pay out on second place as the winner.
Paddy Power have gone for another bold Masters special; they will refund all losing bets if Tiger wins his fifth Masters title and are also paying quarter odds on the top six places, one more than a lot of the other bookmakers.

In Augusta heavy rain is forecast for the first two days play and it forced the early conclusion of the traditional Masters curtain-raiser, the par three competition. Padraig Harrington and Jonathan Byrd were both tied at five-under when a thunderstorm prevented the conclusion of the event. Harrington’s win means that he’ll have to overcome a Masters jinx this weekend, as no player to have won the three-par competition has ever gone on to win the full event that year.
World number one Luke Donald chose to sit out the event, as did Darren Clarke as he looks to rest an injury ahead of this afternoons play. Thomas Bjorn had an eventful round, he was caddied by Declan Donnelly of Ant and Dec fame and even finished his nine holes with a hole-in-one.
Good luck with all of your betting and enjoy the golf!
