I know, I know, betting on golf and discussing it on the UG is blasphemy. But I figured I'd mention to you bettors, that I see a lot of value on betting golf tournaments. I barely golf, unless you count PS2, but my Dad lives on the course, watches it and subscribes to 3 mags. So I figured I'd let him handicap the US open for me, stressing longshots that have a remote chance to steal it. So on his advice, I spread $80 in bets over ten guys and a 60-1 underdog just won. I bet 7 bucks on him to win $420 on sportsbook. So, $340 in profit. I'll post my pop's picks for the British Open when that comes up. No guarantees he'll win for you bastards though.

Yeah, phil was one of my three safety bets to cover the 80 bucks. I think if he won, I would have profited $5. So, I was pretty psyched when he went to sh*t on the final hole. My girl(who I don't tell about my bets) was like, "since when do you get so excited about golf?" Imagine how confused she must have been. lol

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH... during one of my low periods, I was at work, screaming for joy at a gamecast for a regular season NCAA woman's basketball game (I had a second half bet on it)... my co-workers were like, "I didn't know guys liked women's college basketball"... it is amazing what a little money can do for the entertainment value of just about anything...

Thanks, Odessa. And sawdusk, betting on the WNBA!? Sounds like dark times.
