150/1 Clarke Great News For Bookies

Darren Clarke was the toast of bookies and his in-play backers tonight according to Ladbrokes as he was largely unfancied at 150/1.

Clarke was a widely unfancied 150/1 chance pre-tournament and was a fantastic result for the layers who are heralding one of the best Opens in recent years thanks to increased turnover and favourable places.

In-play results proved less profitable thanks to Clarke’s army of fans who supported him over the weekend with a £75,000 bet at 5/2 the lowlight of in-play business for the firm. Clarke was also popular in the top Irish player market at 20/1.

Looking ahead to the next major McIlroy & Mickelson are the joint 10/1 favourites for the USPGA with Westwood and Donald in behind at 14/1. Woods is a 16/1 chance.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Overall we’re incredibly happy with the tournament. We gave a great deal back in-play but thanks to some competitive golf turnover was up and we’d love to do that much business across the weekend again.”

he added: “Clarke’s backers really fancied him in the conditions and didn’t depart him throughout. In weather to suit we expect McIlroy to make amends in the USPGA.”
