Padraig Harrington May Still be Good Bet to Win Open Championship

Padraig Harrington

Unlike a number of the golfers who were early favorites and now reduced to triple digit long shots after Day 1 action, oddsmakers were less inclined to touch Padraig Harrington.  He was listed with nearly the same odds he opened up with at Sportingbet.com - 25/1 for a payout potential of US$2500 on every US$100 bet.

Trying to become the first player in 53 years to win a major three times in a row, Padraig Harrington was more than happy to be five shots off the lead after his 1-under 69.

After missing five cuts in a row before a low-key victory in Ireland, he feared that miserable trend on the regular tours might have continued into Turnberry.

"I hit a lot of nice shots where I was aiming in the middle of the green. I didn't really have the confidence to chase the pins and was trying to hole from 25, 30 feet most of the day," he said. "I got up and down when I needed to get up and down. While I wasn't shooting the lights out, it gives me hope for the next three days."

Tiger Woods, by the way, was cut down to 5/1 odds for a payout potential of US$500 on every US$100 bet.
