From the Paddy Power Blog… Oh – its comedy gold. Tiger Woods. Pulling out. 9 holes. You could fill an entire episode of Mock The Week with variations on those few words. Quite often they do it with less.
We’ll skip all the potential libellous jokes to tell you that after Tiger Woods pulled out of The Players Championship after only 9 holes of his 1st round, we’re refunding all bets placed on Tiger at TPC. As he already started hacking his way around Sawgrass, other bookies are claiming him as a loser and laughing in your face, but we’re putting an electronic arm around you and saying ‘there, there – it’s ok, here’s your money back.’ We’re refunding all bets on Woods – in the outright betting and in all the other [fantastic] range of markets we had on TPC. Plus, it gives us a chance to tell you we’re better than every other bookmaker out there and we rarely need an excuse for that.
Tiger went into the tournament nursing an injury and after initially trying to suck it up, he decided that’s something best left to … whoa – let’s not go there.
The important thing is Paddy Power customers aren’t out of pocket and that’s all that matters. Feel free to shower us with praise in the comments section or if you fancy, complete some of those Tiger jokes I was trying to avoid.
