Lara is a lady. She likes golf, horse racing and betting which is a weird combination for a girl! Anyway she tends to pick winners so good luck to her...
Firstly Ryan Curtis owes everyone a free bet… I wrote a beautiful piece on how Jordan Spieth would cruise to an easy victory at Pebble Beach before going on to claim the Green Jacket, which Ryan did not read properly and ‘saved for another time.’ So sorry about that!
Oh and just to add to your woes, Jordan was available for the Masters at 8-1 and is now 13-2 after last weekend’s victory…
Anyways lets forget that and pick another victor this week!
The Genesis Open has the most exciting field of 2017 so far, mainly due to the fact Adam Scott is making his 2017 US debut. To mark this occasion I thought it would be nice if we just posted a page of Adam’s best pics for our female readers… However I was overruled BUT after he finished tied second to Bubba Watson in this tournament last year and is currently available at 22-1 to go one better this weekend he deserves his spot as ‘Bet Of The Week!’
Genesis Open - 22-1
Masters - 22-1
US Open - 28-1
The Open - 25-1
PGA - 33-1
Why choose him for this tournament?
Adam will face some tough competition this week, with World Number One Jason Day returning here for the first time since 2012 and Hideki Matsuyama and Jordan Spieth both on blistering form. As mentioned above Adam was second here last year, he missed the tournament in 2015 and 2014 but was tied tenth in 2013, the year he went on to score at Augusta. He enjoyed some sparkling form this time last year, following up his runner-up spot here with two victories.
Will he win a Major in 2017?
Possibly. A second Green Jacket is never out of the question, although he has made the cut in the three starts proceeding his victory Adam has yet to reignite that form in Georgia. He has two top ten finishes in the US Open, five in The Open and four in the PGA. Adam played well enough to reach 16th position when The Open was last played at Birkdale (2008) so that could well be worth a cheeky punt.
He is Australian. Therefore he obviously loves to surf (plus we can now post a photo of him in swim shorts)
According to the Daily Mail he has previously dated Kate Hudson but after winning The Masters, he had a secret wedding in his back garden with Swedish wife Marie Kojzar (Ed Note - There was a link but not linking to this shitstain paper)
His namesake Adam Scott played a golfer called Adam Scott in a film called The Adult Swim Golf Classic
***On a side note we will be missing Tiger Woods from the field again this weekend due to his ongoing injuries. PLEASE add him to the commentary team, I do not have many plans this weekend so intend on watching a lot of golf and this would prevent napping during some of the DULL coverage we have forced upon us.
