Six-figure punter has a lot Ryding on Celtic Manor

Ladbrokes has cut the USA from 7/4 to 13/8 after receiving a £100,000 bet from a punter for Corey Pavin’s team to win at Celtic Manor. The bookie, which is offering 87 markets for this weekend’s tie, is anticipating a record number of bets for the clash.

Europe have gone out to 8/13 from 4/7, with the tie 10/1, while Tiger Woods is 8/1 to put his recent poor form behind him and be top point scorer, with Rory McIlroy 10/1.

David Williams of Ladbrokes said, “The Ryder Cup always brings out the heavyweight money – and the opening gambit has been fired in favour of the Americans.”
