Ryder Cup star Reed 50/1 for Augusta

patrick-reed-golfPatrick Reed was the star performer at the Ryder Cup, maintaining the excellent form that saw him win The Barclays among a string of good performances in the last months of the season, and next year could well see the 26-year-old make his breakthrough in the majors.

There were signs at the Open and PGA Championship, where he finished just outside the top 10, that Reed was beginning to make his mark on the biggest events and having moved into the world’s top 10 he certainly has the quality to become the next first-time major winner.

The World no.8 is a 50/1 shot with LadbrokesPaddy Power and BetVictor to win the Masters in April (as short as 33/1 elsewhere), or he can currently be backed at best price 66/1 with Bet365 for the Open, which will be staged at Royal Birkdale.

Meanwhile, Europe’s top performer Thomas Pieters, who also finished on 4 points, is now available at best odds of 100/1 for the Masters and the Open, both at Betfair.
