With only days to go until some of the best golfers on the European Tour grace our shores to play in the 3 Irish Open, Ireland’s premier bookmakers, Paddy Power, has issued their pre tournament odds.
Topping the list of zany bets is double major winner John and what style his trousers will be on the fist tee. Punters can get a best priced 5/2 for the ‘Wild Thing’ showing up in an orange pair while you can get 33/1 on Daly having the Irish flag as the design on his pants.
Other popular bets on Daly include: 10/1 to be pictured with a pint of Guinness and 100/1 for him to be photographed selling memorabilia from his camper van as he did at the Masters earlier this year.
Three time major winner, Padraig Harrington, is 11/1 to win his fist Irish Open since 2007. 20 year old rising star, Rory McIlroy, is second favourite at 14/1 with Englishman Lee Westwood third favourite at 16s.
Pick of the rest for outright winner are Thomas Bjorn at 28/1, John Daly at 55s, Darren Clarke at 60/1 and José Maria Olazabal at 66/1.
For all the patriots out there, a Harrington – McIlroy 1-2 is on the market at a tempting 80/1 while odds on any two Irish players finishing first and second are 12/1.
