If you think the Wisconsin weather will cooperate enough to allow Phil Mickelson to make his opening-round tee time at the U.S. Open, there’s now an opportunity to put your money behind that belief.
Offshore betting outlet Bookmaker.eu has offered a series of prop bets for this week’s event at Erin Hills. Among them are odds on whether Mickelson will be able to make it back from his daughter’s graduation ceremony in California in time to tee it up for the 24th straight year.
A “yes” bet comes with +1000 odds, meaning $100 wins $1,000, while “no” is -3500 meaning $3,500 gets you $100.
