|The Ryder Cup, golf's most prestigious event takes place providing multiple betting opportunities.|
Bowmans Sportsbook have handed Tom Lehman's USA underdogs +0.5 start and are trading at -110 (10/11) to topple Ian Woosnam’s -0.5 Europeans -110 (10/11) at the K Club in Kildare, Ireland.
A spokesperson for Bowmans reported some heavy action for USA to win back the trophy they last won at Brookline in 1999. 'This year it looks like the Americans are finally taking this event seriously since they have been pounded in the Ryder Cup in recent years. Tiger being one of the veterans now is trying to take charge and this year's team looks like it can give Europe all they can handle.
'There is no question that the USA have a lot to prove, especially in light of their 18.5pts to 9.5pts hammering by the Europeans at Oakland Hills in 2004.'
With 2004's winning margin in mind Bowmans have released a “winning margin market” with a winning margin of six or more points for either side quoted at +350 (7/2).
