Jordan Spieth has the chance to make golfing history this week as he could become the youngster player ever to win the Grand Slam – winning the sport’s four major tournaments, and OddsMonkey firmly believes you should be backing him.
Winning The Open last month adding to his previous Masters and US Open successes, gave Spieth the third leg of the four he needs to become one of golf’s true greats – a feat only ever achieved by five other players – Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen.
Victory at the US PGA this week at Quail Hollow also offers Spieth, who has just turned 24, the chance to be the youngster ever, beating Woods by six months.
“This is your chance to be backing history, and the Bookmakers are going against him you can get 10/1 with the likes of BetVictor, WilliamHill, PaddyPower and Betfair,” said OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton.
“This is easily explained by the fact Rory McIlroy loves the course and is seeing a lot of money, as is Hideki Matsuyama after his big win in the WGC last week – but because of this the Bookmakers are starting to ease Spieth and that is a huge mistake in our eyes.
“Spieth is very good leading from the front, so if he is going to do it, he is likely going to be low in the first round, and you can kiss the 10/1 goodbye, he will be odds-on at that point. So we are saying get on him now – the chance for someone to break this record is once in a generation.”
