For those who have read the first half of the betting odds, here is the second half of the article. For a quick recap, Graeme Mc Dowell and Martin Kaymer are the top favourites and are being slated as the possible winners of the
Rory McIlroy
The 21-year-old has been at the top in several events, but failed to claim a victory in the European tour. He put up a bold fight against Westwood in 2009, but failed to impress the crowd in the last moments. Moreover, he has a
strong relation with Dubai, owing to a victory at the Dubai Desert Classic in 2009. A closer look at his form shows seven top-six finishes in 2010 specifically in Europe. This justifies his presence in the betting odds.
The young Irishman was a part of the Ryder Cup squad and gave a superb performance alongside his team member, Graeme Mc Dowell. To strengthen his support, the veteran is known for his excellent putting and Green Hits in Regulations.
Luke Donald
He was in the top six contenders last year and was the most dangerous of the adversaries for Lee Westwood. The Englishman is statistically the leader in Putts per Green hits in regulations and has earned a peak in Putts per Round
as well as sand saves.
Moreover, only recently he gave a superb performance in the HSBC Champions held in Shanghai. The player was suffering from a sinus infection, but did not give up and fought until the last moment, which earned him a 73 in the final
round. Donald seized 3rd place in the tournament despite the health issue. This time the player is fully prepared physically and mentally for the challenge and chances are that he will take a leading position.
As far as his prior relation with the course is concerned, Donald visited the Earth Golf Club last year at the same time. Initially, he seemed to incur problems with the length of the course, but he gradually improved his stats
by the end of the round.
Lee Westwood
The reigning world No.1 cannot be ignored. He won the title last year at the same venue and later surged to the top most rank of the world in 11 months. The Punter invested time and effort in the game and nudged Tiger Woods from
his throne.
However, in the middle of 2010, Westwood injured himself and kept himself away from competitive golf until the Ryder Cup saga. The legend not only was selected for the team, but also earned maximum points that led towards victory.
He was part of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, where he revived his injury and went for another break. The player was part of the HSBC Champions and seized the second spot on the leader board.
The world No.1 is a short game player and this is the prerequisite for the course. The Earth Golf Club is stretched out on 7600 yards and is known as a pit of h**l by the local golfers. With more than 3000 trees and doglegged fairways,
Earth makes an excellent testing ground for putters.
This is it for the betting preview of the Dubai World Championship. According to the press releases, the winner of the title will earn $1.25 million prize money along with a bonus of $1.5 million. This kind of money will surely
help in getting access to the house of world number ones. Last year Westwood won the grand total and this time Kaymer, Donald, Mc Dowell and Rory McIlroy are all vying for the crown.
