Early doors, Stricker for a "two-peat"

Who would have guessed ten years ago that this week's two top sports stories would be about Tiger Woods spitting and an Italian headbutting the hardest footballer I ever saw?

Ah well, both stories are more newsworthy than Darren "DA" Points (for it is he) winning on tour. Anyone that took the two billion to one on offer, well done. Now give it up and retire. Lightning does not strike twice. Mind you I did once get 200/1 about Thomas Levet after 36 holes at Loch Lomond, but I digress.

This week at Riviera, Steve Stricker is the obvious choice. He won last year in similar conditions, he's hard as nails and has already had two top ten finishes in 2011. Mickleson is in the field so you can get 14/1. Me, I'm going to wait until Saturday morning.

Betfair crazy odds tip this week is Charlie Wi. 300/1 when the local TAB say just 151. Double it up with the Rebels to beat the knows it...
