Andy Zhang to Become Youngest Golf Major Winner?
LONDON, June 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Tiger Woods was 21 years and 104 days old when he won his first Major and many thought that record would stand for a long time but Chinese teenager Andy Zhang is just 5/1 to beat that milestone with Bodog.co.uk.
Now based in Florida, Zhang, replaced the injured Paul Casey and has been the surprise focus of the late build up to the 2nd Major of the year.
Bodog.co.uk also have odds of 12/1 for the 14 year-old to make the cut and just 10/11 that he manages to hit a longer drive than world number one, Luke Donald, during the tournament.
Bodog.co.uk Trading Manager, Nick Grey explains: "It's great to have another potential superstar coming through and the fact that he is so strong at such a young age is incredible. I think this year he is unlikely to make the cut but just getting the experience of the crowds and the atmosphere of a Major at 14 means that he must have a great chance of becoming that youngest Major winner in the modern era, hence we are only prepared to go 8/1."
