I FELT sorry for Adam Scott as his late collapse at The Open handed victory to Ernie Els even though I'd tipped the South African at 45-1.
Scott didn't do too much wrong and will be looking to make amends and land his first Major when the PGA Championship starts on Thursday.
Questions are being asked about the Aussie's mental state but there is a chance he could do a Rory McIlroy who bounced back from US Masters torment to land the US Open.
Scott looks worth a look at each-way odds of 33-1 at Skybet on a long and tight Kiawah Island course that should suit his game.
Dustin Johnson is another whose length off the tee should be invaluable and the American is a biggest 25-1 with William Hill
Golf is one of the hardest sports in the world to predict with the favourite, Tiger Woods, as big as 9-1 at various firms.
He didn't take his A game to Lytham and the fact he's still out of sorts with his driver would be a worry to me.
Rory McIlroy is being backed at Ladbrokes at 20-1 but he's struggled this season and it will take a massive improvement in form to land another Major.
Keeping in line with the Olympics theme Ladbrokes make it a 4-1 chance that a “Team GB” golfer wins or 8-1 an Englishman such as Luke Donald or Lee Westwood triumphs.
But for me it's an Aussie in Scott – and how they need a boost after their poor show at London 2012 – or an American with Johnson leading the way ahead of Webb Simpson, Keegan Bradley and Matt Kuchar.
(25-1, William Hill)
