I saw that too, very cool. Quite the roller coaster year for Rory. Great win for him, kind of came up short in a few majors, and of course put himself front and center in the whole LIV controversy. Good for him, happy he was able to pull off the comeback this week.

I had Rory at 11-to-1 odds on Thursday, along with a few others. I went against chalk with Scheffler and to start the final round, I had small bets on each of the next 4 guys that were chasing Scheffler, just needing him to drift back to the pack. Sungjae Im at 30-to-1 would have been a much nicer payout but happy to have Rory get the win and come out ahead!

Been doing just a tiny bit of dabbling in betting on golf and I'm here to tell you, it's funner than shit. Damn. You spread out a few $10 or $20 bets on 4-5 players, watch them go at it down the stretch.

Last week, I put about $20-$25 each on Xander S, Morikawa, Finau, Justin Thomas, and the winner Patrick Cantlay. All of them were somewhere around 15 or 20 to 1. I think for about $120 investment I came away with $335 or something.

At any rate, if you're a golfer, it definitely makes the golf tournaments a little more fun and spicy to watch on Sunday.

For the Tour Championship this weekend at East Lake, I like Xander first and foremost (his record in the last 3 years at this course, he has improved his position from start to finish better than anyone), and Rahm and Justin Thomas have also played well there historically. I may throw something small like $10 on Cantlay because he's been playing really well.

Totally agree. I started betting head to head matchups this year....and I think it's just as much fun as betting football.

Also...I think this is the first time I've paid attention to the Tour Championship. It's really cool and is a big deal to the players. Obviously the nearly $20 million dollar purse is major. Think they've got to do something about the staggered starting leaderboards though. A ten stroke lead for the points leader is too much, imo.
