ANWA backlash, Tiger’s new venture, and Masters betting with Golf Odds’ Jeff Sherman
It’s Friday! We begin with some thoughts on the first two days of the first ever Augusta National Women’s Amateur. We offer some critiques on the odd sequence of a practice round wedged in middle, the need for an 11-for-10 playoff, and if this is the right week on the schedule for it. Then we move to a discussion on the early action at the ANA Inspiration and the Texas Open, which provokes a Flashback Friday on how the ProV1 left Justin Leonard, and a potential legendary career, behind. In news, we hit on the revelation that Tiger Woods will be doing a series of matches with GolfTV and discuss what that might mean for the future of golf networks in the States. Then Jeff Sherman, expert handicapper and oddsmakers of the SuperBook and GolfOdds.com, joins for a quick segment on what the market looks like for next week’s Masters. We wrap with multiple juicy and enlightening Masters facts of the day, including one on the amateur who was thrown out of the Tournament for potentially salacious reasons and a body of water named after a famous 16th century explorer who allegedly crossed the grounds.
