Coral fear old foes Woods and Mickelson at the Masters
Former champions are proving popular
Coral is fearing Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson this week at the US Masters in Augusta.
The two greats of the sport have been extremely popular with the firm leading into the opening Major of the year.
Four-time champion Woods, who was as big as 40/1 just a couple of months ago, is now 11/1 after a strong run of results.
And three-time winner of the Green Jacket Mickelson can be backed at 14/1.
Coral is offering its each-way customers 10 places this week and they have seen strong interest in Thomas Pieters (40/1), Ian Poulter (40/1) and Matt Kuchar (35/1).
“We thought we had seen the back of Tiger Woods and Mickelson causing us misery in the Majors, however, punters are putting their faith in the two greats once again therefore we will be cheering on the young guys this week, ” said Coral’s John Hill.
“We have already seen an increase in each-way betting due to our extra places and one of the most popular selections to make the frame has been Thomas Pieters.
“Ian Poulter will be buoyed by his win last weekend and he has not been short of supporters, while Matt Kuchar is in many punters’ portfolio this year,” added Hill.
