BYRON NELSON CHAMPIONSHIP OUTRIGHT
We enjoyed great success last summer following Vijay after he hit form and Tiger aside, once he finds his "A" game, he holds it as well as any other player on tour. Injury has hindered his campaign in 2009 so far, but there have been clear signs that he is about to return to that level of performance. He played well in the Masters without getting into real contention and then shot a closing 67 at the Players Championship two weeks ago, a score only bettered by two players and which earned him a nice top ten finish.
Looking in more depth at that Sawgrass performance, he only dropped one stroke over the closing 30 holes, which he played in 7 under par, runaway leader Henrik Stenson was "only" 12 under for 72 holes. VJ also putted very well (ranked #4), which is always key to his golf, the rest of his game takes care of itself.
Singh is a 59 time winner worldwide, including 34 times on the US Tour, he has a very solid record record here, especially in the "odd" years ....2001 (11th), 2003 (won), 2005 (3rd) and 2007 (13th). The course was significantly changed for last year, when Vijay did not play, but this most hard working of golfers will be well prepared and comes here following a free week, which doubtless he would have spent most of working on a game plan to handle the changes. I am fairly sure that we will return to the tournament over the weekend, but a small outright win bet will suffice for now.
3 points Vijay Singh outright 29.0 general quote... bigger in places.
