Most of the golf 'specials' for 2010 are not worth a second glance but I've sifted the wheat from the chaff to give you 10 bets at least worth considering:-
Phil Mickelson to win the US Money List Without Woods 7/4 Victor Chandler
The second best golfer on the planet is set to play a full schedule now his personal life is more settled and, with his nemesis on gardening leave, he should make hay, especially during his favoured West Coast Swing. He will also be looking forward to going back to Augusta, where he's already won twice, and another one of his favourite tracks in Pebble Beach, which affords him a great chance of bagging that elusive US Open win. Ker-ching.
Edoardo Molinari to win a European Tour event 13/8 Skybet
The Italian had a stellar 2009 winning three times on the Challenge Tour and one of the big-money-late-year events in Japan, before partnering his brother Francesco to World Cup success. It's inconceivable he won't open his main-tour account in 2010.
Martin Kaymer to win the 2010 Race To Dubai 15/2 Paddy Power
The ice cool German has committed to playing most of his golf on European soil, where he should mop up plenty of booty, and is good enough to contend in the World Championship events and the four majors, all of which both count towards the title. He would probably have won his year but for a go-karting accident which kept him out for several weeks. Who does he think he is: Michael Schumacher?
Rickie Fowler to be PGA Tour Money List Rookie of the Year 9/4 Skybet
The Californian was world No.1 amateur for 36 weeks and could be something special now he's turned pro. Certainly, he made a big splash in his only two main-tour starts to date (second and seventh) and with his 2010 Tour card safely secured he should rack up enough cash to land the bet with ease.
Ross McGowan to play in the European Ryder Cup team 9/4 Totesport
Here's a player who is very much on the upgrade. In only his second full season on Tour, he bagged his maiden win in the Madrid Masters (shooting a 60 in the process) and capped that success with an excellent second behind Lee Westwood at the Dubai World Championship. He should continue his progress in 2010 and is one of several young rookies I expect to make the team.
Fred Couples to win the Champions Tour Money List 12/1 Stan James (each-way)
Old Boom Boom has hit the big 5-0 and considering how well he played on the main tour last season he should make millions out of his new career on the Champions Tour. His dodgy back is always a slight concern but he should play enough times to land the place part of the bet at least.
Steve Stricker to win a US PGA Tour event 8/13 Betfred
I nearly choked on my cornflakes when I saw this price. OK, he's not getting any younger at 42 but is coming off a career-best season in which he won thee times and should have won a couple of more if the truth be told. There's no reason to think his success won't continue in 2010.
No European major winners in 2010 5/2 Skybet
With six Europeans - Lee Westwood, Paul Casey, Padraig Harrington, Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia and Rory McIlroy - occupying six positions in the world's top ten, the chances of a European major winner in 2010 must be high. Still, odds of 2/7 make scant appeal and I'd rather bet on no European major winner, especially as I fancy Phil Mickelson to win at least two.
Phil Mickelson to win a major (any major) in 2010 9/4 Totesport
Finally, Tiger Woods' divorce settlement to cost more than $500m 33/1 Paddy Power
I can't make head or tail of some of the Woods specials going round but this one might be worth a few quid!
Good luck with your golf betting in 2010!
