Sports Trading Club Golf Savant has Betting Exchanges Running Scared and Shaking in Their Pants After Another Successful Multi-Million Dollar Prediction

LONDON, January 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

The "human computer" known as the Sports Trading Club golf savant has betting exchanges running scared and shaking in their pants after again successfully predicting Zach Johnson at 12-1 the winner of a PGA tour event.

Zach Johnson won the Tournament of Champions after rolling in seven birdies en route to a bogey-free 66 in the final round at Kapalua Resort.

The 37-year-old American tied Billy Horschel for the low round of the day to win the USPGA Tour tournament by one shot.

Last September the Sports Trading Club Golf Savant predicted the 37-year-old American, then a 48-1 outsider, to win the US PGA's $8 million BMW Championship.

There has been worldwide interest in the woman who is the Sports Trading Club (http://www.sportstradingclub.com) golf savant since earlier last year when she selected Billy Horschel to record his first PGA Tour victory in the Zurich Classic, despite him being a 36-1 outsider.

She then chose Harris English at 66-1 to win the FedEx St. Jude Classic for his first title on the U.S. PGA Tour and in so doing firmly elevated the Sport Trading Club savant to the highest echelons of great golf gurus.  

In August 2013, the Sports Trading Club announced that American Jason Dufner was their standout to win the US PGA Championship at the price of 42 - 1.  He did win, and the golfing world is now in awe of the savant.

Her five extraordinary successes have stunned the sports betting world, who fear the consequences of her accuracy.

"Her insight is a miracle of the human mind and a scientific phenomenon," said UK Communications Manager Patrick McMahon.

"Her success has betting exchanges worldwide running scared and shaking in their pants," he said.

The Sports Trading Club created The Insight Project, a world first with the study of savants and sports trading.

It is led by their scientific director Dr. Allan Snyder, FRS who, for some 20 years, has conducted groundbreaking research on savants at both the Australian National University and the University of Sydney.

"We have embraced the extraordinary skills of savants to give ourselves a unique advantage," said Dr Snyder.

"Certain savants unmask patterns that others can't see and are bewilderingly quick at performing calculations and recalling enormous amounts of data," he said.

Dr. Snyder, himself a living genius and brilliant learned scholar, believes that certain savants have a distinct advantage in sports trading, which gives the Sports Trading Club a diagnostic edge that no one else can achieve.

Dr Snyder would say little about the identity of the Savant except that she lives in the USA and four years ago she had never even watched a game of golf.

"Let me say up front that the STC savant project is highly innovative and one of the most rewarding and interesting research endeavours of my career," Dr Snyder said.

The Sports Trading Club, which operates as a private investors group in England, recently allowed the general public to become associate members in Australia and is expanding throughout Asia.
