The Barclays Scottish Open golf from July 7-10, 2011 at Castle Stuart, Inverness, Scotland. The Barclays Scottish Open is part of the European Tour and the BSO will be the 30th tournament of a very extensive 52 event golf tour – one for each week of the year.
Golf’s European Tour is no stranger to betting fans with player standings changing regularly after each tournament on the tour so plenty of excellent odds and bets on offer especially on the internet.
Good news for betting fans is that the Barclays Scottish Open will play host to major winners Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel. For Oosthuizen, this represents a very good practice run before he defends his Open Championship a week later, Britain’s biggest golf tournament and the one that is really is the jewel in the golf bets crown.
The South African pair, who have known each other since playing junior golf together, joined the exclusive club of Major winners last year following Oosthuizen’s fantastic victory in The Open at St Andrews and Schwartzel’s amazing Masters triumph at Augusta.
In more exciting potential betting-action, current US Open Champion and 2008 Barclays Scottish Open winner Graeme McDowell, joins other golfing superstarts Padraig Harrington, Phil Mickelson and defending champion Edoardo Molinari at Castle Stuart, with even more of the world’s elite players expected to add to the excitement of the fixtures.
However, the biggest star in some ways is the unpredictable Scottish weather which can make a mockery of any form book often having the final word. This can of course, be good and bad news for the betting man.
Each round can very different and, in bad weather, this highlights the difficulties of profiting from low odds where ‘sure things’ can fall by the wayside.
Due to the unknown nature, form and history of some of the younger and more obscure players, the early rounds often tend throw up some very surprising odds, bets, predictions and results which are definitely worth an outside punt from hard-core golf betting fans.
Online golf betting gets easier with each tour and many online bookmakers will not want to miss a chance to offer tips, free bets, predictors, and all kinds of special internet bets on pretty Barclays Scottish Open golf early rounds.
Despite the problematic Scottish climate which can play havoc with player form, U.K based online bookmakers will still produce their most accurate odds, free bet or free bets offers, and predictions on the fixtures schedule.
So you can be sure that any bet made with a U.K online bookmaker will have been thoroughly researched no matter what the issue. His decision is final!
With the Barclays Scottish Open golf being player a week after the French Open, what happens there could have a large bearing on the odds, predictors, and bets available for this tournament.
U.K betting fans, in particular will be interested in odds involving British golfers in the belief that knowing the players involved and the schedule, or order of play, will give them a betting edge.
All four days of the Barclays Scottish Open will be broadcast live on both BBC and Sky Sports with extensive highlights all over the internet too so there’s no excuse to miss the competitive odds, predictors, tips and even free bets available on to the smart bettor!
