All four match bets on the blog yesterday won, Juventus 1-0, YE Yang edged home by a single stroke, Martin Laird won by three shots and Geoff Ogilvy who was my best golf bet of the day, by a whopping nine strokes !
Ogilvy finished third just one stroke off second place, which would have completed a clean sweep on the blog for Sunday.
The top 30 players in the FedEx standings now move onto the Tour Championship, where they are playing for massive prize money and bonus payments. Enough to get even these multi-millionaires very excited and motivated. Last man in was Bo Van Pelt in 30th place, "bubble boy" was our very own Martin Laird, who after a very poor start to his round, threw the kitchen sink at Cog Hill GC over the closing holes ( three under for last five), but came up a heartbreaking one stroke shy.
The Top 5 on the standings, Webb Simpson, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Luke Donald and Matt Kuchar are all guaranteed the outrageous $10m bonus ( in addition to first place money), should either of them win at East Lake. That group includes four of the top five on the US Money List and comprise 20% of the field, so a very good chance that one will be banking an eight digit cheque this time next week, nice work if you can get it !
