Might be his Day at World Match Play

Jason Day hits it better than most and the course should suit him well.

Mark Allen rates the Accenture World Match Play Championship, played this week at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club, as the who's who of the super heroes of golf.

With only Phil Mickelson and Paul Casey not attending the Accenture World Match Play Championship, there is still a wealth of talent to put some money down on.


Match play events are the toughest to pick, providing a great opportunity to lay some big names this week.


One player I wouldn't risk though is Tiger Woods. The intimidation factor is still strong when Woods tees it up man-to-man and it wouldn't surprise me if he scares his opponents off the course.


Luke Donald is the defending champion and is now world number one. He'd be a great scalp to get this week and is hardly intimidating. I think you can lay him for as much as you like. Somebody will step up and knock him off his perch.


Rory McIlroy is the best driver of the golf ball in the world and will be hard to roll. I know he's the favourite but I just can't go past him as a winner. I think he's a good thing. Try backing him in every individual match for better odds instead of just the winner market.


It's hard to pick smokies with small, elite fields but Jason Day hits it better than most and the course should suit him well. He has also announced his wife is pregnant. I don't know why, but players just win when this happens. Again, back him in each individual match to get the best out of the odds.


Good punting!
