There are not very many bad things to say about Riviera Country Club....the place is stunning. The layout, the speed of the greens, the tree lined, the views, just amazing. Adam Scott walked away with the victory with a final round 70 to win $1.64M. Not a bad pay day to go play one of the iconic and gorgeous courses in California. Coming into the week Adam Scott was sitting at +3300 of winning the event. To break that down a $100 bet on Scott to win would payout $3,400 (inclusive of your original $100).
Adam played sound golf down the stretch as other golfers faltered and eventually was able to seal it with birdie on 17 to give himself some cushion going into 18. My only gripe with this win is is it unfair that someone just has too much good things going for them? Let's look at his accomplishments:
Former World #1
2013 Masters Champion
31 Career Professional Wins
Objectively very attractive
Australian (accent really pays off here in the states)
Went to UNLV....I mean...come on....
A beautiful family with two kids
Resident of Switzerland...for tax purposes (Wikipedia)
He's also continuously referred to as "The Hot One"....so it's nice to see good things happen to him...finally.
Our bets this week all made the cut, which is always helpful going into the weekend. It gives everyone a chance to win. That being said, if Dustin Johnson doesn't fall apart on the back 9, I think he pulls it home for us.
Dustin Johnson T4 - Sunday 72
Matthew Fitzpatrick T30 - Sunday 73
Pat Perez T47 - Sunday 73
Tony Finau T51 - Sunday 72
Tiger Woods 68 - Sunday 77....whoops
