HSBC World Match Play Championship

Following form on the europeantour circuit over the year, I have some tips for the first round 2 balls.

The matchups are as follows

Retief Goosen V Kenneth Ferrie
Colin Montgomery V Mark Hensby
Tim Clark V Steve Elkington
Michael Campbell V Geoff Ogilvy
Luke Donald V Bernhard Langer
Thomas Bjorn V Paul McGinley
David Howell V Jose Maria Olazabel
Angel Cabrera V Trevor Immelman

I like Michael Campbell @ $1.55 to beat Geoff Ogilvy in the first round.
I also like Luke Donald @ $1.52 to beat Bernhard Langer in the first round.
I also like Retief Goosen @ $1.20 to beat Kenneth Ferrie in the first round.

However, I am only going the one play. That is Michael Campbell to defeat Geoff Ogilvy. And on top of that, I firmly believe that Michael can win the whole thing.

Speaking of which, the winner.

Retief Goosen is favourite at $4
Luke Donald is at $10
Michael Campbell is at $11

I'm very tempted to have a dig at Donald who is in awesome form and put some on Campbell. Donald's odds considering the form he's been in are too good to miss.

My suggested bet though is Michael Campbell today to defeat Geoff Ogilvy and that's who I'm on.

Re: HSBC World Match Play Championship

Goosen was part of a parlay that included Bychkova - gone down then

Re: HSBC World Match Play Championship

Bad Luck - you follow Golf much?

Goosen is still 3 up after 11 holes.

Donald is murdering his opponent too. 4 up after 8. - Good sign of form for us who backed him to win the tournament.

Campbell finally levelled with Ogilvy after 9. They're both equal.

Campbell is in a parlay consisting of Verdasco and Youzhny.

Current Scores

Campbell V Ogilvy - Even (9)
Donald V Langer - Donald 4 up (8)
Goosen V Ferrie - Goosen 4 up (12)
Clarke V Elkington - Even (10)
Montgomery V Hensby - 3 up (12)
Bjorn V McGinley - Even (6)
Howell V Olazabel - Olazabel 2 up (6)
Cabrera V Immelman - Even (5)

Re: HSBC World Match Play Championship

Nando is the biggest choker in mens tennis.

Up a break in the first set, lost the set.

Up a break in the second set, lost the set.

Lost to Mayer on clay. What a d!ck.

Should have learnt after the US Open not to back him!

Won the Campbell leg. Should have stayed with golf and parlayed the big 3.

Re: HSBC World Match Play Championship

www.europeantour.com - however, that didn't show the scores early yesterday.

or the official website as listed above.

Matchups for today

Retief Goosen $1.40 V Mark Hensby $2.90
Michael Campbell $1.60 V Steve Elkington $2.30
Luke Donald $1.50 V Paul McGinley $2.55
Jose Maria Olazabel $2.20 V Angel Cabrera $1.65

Atm I'd parlay Donald, Campbell and Goosen or just a combination of 2 of them. I'm not touching the other one. Ideally, Goosen, Campbell and Donald should have wins over their opponents today.
