Harrington cautious of three consecutive Majors talk
Padraig Harrington goes into this week's Masters at Augusta with a chance of winning three Major titles in a row.
The betting has the Irishman at 16/1 to win the Masters, which begins on Thursday at the famous Augusta National course, behind Phil Mickelson at 13/2 and the rejuvenated Tiger Woods.
Woods, a four-time Masters champion and 7/4 to repeat the feat this year, looks to be be back on form following his lengthy lay-off for knee surgery which saw him miss out on the last two Majors.
Harrington took advantage in his absence and secured wins at the US PGA Championship and The Open, for the second year running. In an interview with BBC Sport (listen below) the Dubliner says that his focus will be on putting in the best performance he can - if that means winning a Major tournament three times on the bounce then so be it.
In a special group bet of Major Men, previous winners of the four biggest tournaments in golf, Harrington is 8/1 to do best again behind Woods 4/7 and Mickelson 3/1.
If you don't fancy him overcoming the Americans he does top the betting for the Top Great Britain and Ireland player at 2/1. Northern Irish rising star Rory McIlroy is 10/3 and, fresh off the back of his first PGA Tour win, the new world number 6 Paul Casey is 4/1.
William Hill have a huge range of betting markets on the US Masters 2009 and will be betting in-play throughout the tournament.
