What Are the Odds that Henrik Stenson Will Win Gold at The 2016 Olympics?

Golf is a gambling game, both on the course and on the internet. Everyone wants to be able to say, “I chose the winner” or “I won the Nassau this week!” With that in mind, online odds are betting that Henrik Stenson wins the gold medal in the 2016 Olympic Games.

I strongly agree with the odds — Stenson just walked away with the Claret Jug and a win at the British Open and is regularly in contention — his steely eyed demeanor is just what is needed to block out distractions and to get the job done.

The women will be playing golf in the Olympics the following week and these ladies don’t seem to be affected by Zika virus so all the top players will be in Rio chasing gold.

Who will win the gold for the ladies? Lydia Ko, the number one golfer in the world seems like a solid choice but there are other standouts such as eighteen-year-old Brooke Henderson.
