Betting Odds:Commercial bank Qatar Masters- part 1

Commercial bank Qatar Masters is the next stop for the desert swings on the European tour.  The 14th edition of the title will stage at the Doha Golf Club in Qatar with a massive purse of $2.5 million.

The course is similar in layout as any other desert-style championship course and the player who can cater wind and undulating fairways will get through the course with ease. Here are the betting odds for the punters who will preferably
finish in the lead.

1.    Martin Kaymer

The 25-year-old German is in the right form to win the title. The reasoning to his odds lie in his past performances. Kaymer had a superb season in 2010 in which he bagged on four victories and Race to Dubai title. One of the four
triumphs was in Dubai, which indicates that he has afair command on the courses in the region.

Moreover, the world number two smacked his season debut title two weeks ago at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club, where he edged the entire field with an eight-stroke margin. According to the record, the player dropped a single shot in the
entire week, which signified his desert prowess.

Looking at his game in Abu Dhabi, chances are that the veteran will replicate a similar game in the current week as well. After all, the desert-styled course suits his game.

However, there is an odd, which might go against the player. Kaymer has been ten times to the course and only once he managed to remain in par.  Moreover, his best finish recorded on the venue is top 31st, which he attained
in 2009.

Looking at the positive side, Kaymer is a four-time winner of 2010, which means he has improved as a professional and hence will pull a better performance this time.

If normal winds continue blowing in the course and Kaymer’s putting remains on his side then stakes are high for the veteran who is on the verge to become the next Tiger Woods.

2. Lee Westwood

Westwood aka Westy is the second punter to look up to. The reason behind the notion does not lay in his form, but his last year’s finish. The world number one finished third being shy of four strokes behind Robert Karlsson.

The only reason he could not lay his hands on the trophy was a broken driver, which landed his tee shot in a fairway bunker. Westy surrendered with remorse, but this time, he has his chance to settle scores with the course.

Moreover, the Englishman is carrying a strong compatibility with the course, which is quite visible with the kind of finish he had last year. Although, he started slow, owing to the rust on his swings, he smashed 69 in the first

This year, the player is in the perfect form, which is well explained through his rank in the world. Therefore, one can place a bet on the player who is ready to take revenge on the course, which defeated him in 2010.

Apart from that, the player is facing a threat of losing his rank to the German. According to the critics, Kaymer will replace Westy provided he wins the tournament, whereas, Westy finishes worse than top two. Therefore, to eliminate
the chances of defeat, the Englishan will exert his utmpst effort to relish a victory.

Nonetheless, the player envies the course. While speaking to the press Westwood admitted, “This is a golf course that suits me. It is a good driver’s course where you need to be mentally strong – it is a thinking man’s golf course.”

This was the first part of the betting odds. For the next half refer to bettor.
