Golf’s US Money List is simply – as the name suggests – a list of the earnings golf players have earned in a given season. When betting on this market you are simply trying to predict which player is going to earn the most money in the current golf season. So read on as we give our thoughts on which players are in contention to lead the money list at the end of the 2014 season, along with the latest betting odds and analysis.
At the time of writing Bubba Watson is at the top of both the money list and the betting, with BetVictor and others pricing the Masters winner at best betting odds of 4/1 to finish in first place. At this stage of the season, with three Majors still to play, we can’t pile in at odds so short, so we’ll give Bubba a swerve as his consistency is questionable.
Rory McIlroy is the second favourite – at odds of 13/2 with Paddy Power – despite being back in 21st place as things stand. The bookies appear to have more faith in McIlroy’s ability than we do and we really don’t think he’ll finish on top of the pile this year, or even in the top three.
However, Jordan Spieth – the 20-year-old who tied for second behind Bubba Watson at the Masters – looks well-placed to challenge for top spot in the money list this year. He is becoming increasingly consistent and though he’s yet to win a PGA Tour event (at the time of writing) he has had six top 10 finishes to his name and at best betting odds of 8/1 with Sportinbet we think he is certainly worth backing to top the money list this year.Google+
