We've learned over the years that big long shots in golf tournaments can win and the payouts can be great.  When we see 2009 US Open payout odds set at +5000 and better, our hearts begin to pound here at Gambling911.com. 

At SBG Global, there are a number of 2009 US Open players listed with +5000 odds or longer, each of which pays out $5000 and up on a $100 bet or $500 and up on a $10 bet.

Anthony Kim would pay $5000 for every $100 bet while Lee Westwood would pay $6000.  Both were initially listed with much shorter odds at SBG - between +2500 and +3000. 

Kim was recently interviewed by ESPN.com and was asked the following question:

Q: You haven't finished better than T-17 since the opening week of the season. Is that due to those injuries, a hangover from last year's success or just lack of strong play?

His response:

" Well, I'll tell you one thing: It's not a hangover from last year's success. I feel like I let quite a few tournaments go last year and my goal is to, when I get in the hunt, not let that happen again this year. You can't control what somebody else does, but I can be ready. "Obviously, being injured doesn't help, but that's not the reason I haven't been scoring well. I've been impatient out there and I know that. And I haven't had as much fun playing golf as I need to. I'm playing my best when I'm laughing and can shake off a bogey or double-bogey and not let that ruin my round. If I can stay more patient like I did at Colonial -- even though that wasn't a great finish, that was the best I've played in a couple of years, as far as my ballstriking -- so if I can do that, I know my game is going in the right direction.

"I'm working out hard. I have a new trainer I hired away from the men's basketball team at OU -- he was the strength and conditioning coach there and he lives with me now. So it shows that I'm working hard. It shows that I'm dedicated to being the best that I can be and hopefully that will be good enough."

Lee Westwood's was recently quoted as having said: ""Can I win one of these? I think I proved last year in that final round that I can."

The proof was his 3rd place finish last year at the US Open.  And for that he gets +6000 odds.  Certainly a value pick as far as Gambling911.com is concerned. 

Justin Rose is another surprise long shot being that he has finished 5th at the 2003 US Open, 5th at the 2007 Masters, and, most recently, 9th at the 2008 PGA Championship. 

Below you will find a list of other +5000 or longer odds to win the 2009 US Open Golf Tournament, which starts on Thursday.  Place your bets here and be sure to take advantage of SBG Global's generous free cash bonuses.
