    I know it must be a bit gutting with Zannoti’s 3rd round cock ups Raymo,
    but it’s still a cracking e/w at 125/1. Well done mate :good:

    Bad luck with your pair that just missed out for the places Darren, and it was
    a bit of a blow with Madison Keys in the tennis, that was a bit of a shock. I
    didn’t see that one coming :negative:

    How we doing on Golf over the year guys?
    Cos the racing is rubbish till later in the week I was bored so worked out how I have been doing on the golf this year and I know it is probably nothing like what you two (Big G and Darren) have been winning.

    I am £478.65 up on the year!! I am happy with that and have had some good winners this year!!

    I bet you two are well up too!!

    Bets in BMW Championship


    Winner last year and while venue be different this week at Conway farms course form look at is from 2013 and 15.DJ won 1st event of playoffs while start ok at dell but fell away in end.A week break be best for him play well here in 2015 but a major champ now think be man to beat.


    Not always best playoff record finish well at dell with final round 5 under.At Conway farms did shoot a 63 in 2015 and game he has perfect for layout like this and think this superstar in for another good week


    Was 2nd behind Day in 2015 but since then evolved into a top player won ST Jude classic back to back.And this young powerhouse shown he handle this course before in 2015


    No doubt this not been great season for him but showing signs of return to form from him 29th at Northern truss and 22nd at dell.And with reports course be hard to score a demanding test will suit him well

    Good luck Raymo on your bets and same to you BigG

    My bets for KLM open up later not had chance look at them yet

    KLM Open


    2nd last year and return to same course this big man can go one place better.Ignore MC from last week back from a break.And this venue suits him well think go on and win.

    RYAN FOX 25/1

    With this being 2nd time play at this course it worth going for a few young stars making debut here.Fox did well enough last week up there for halfway before he drop back.With layout suit bigger hitters.Can have another good week.


    Young powerhouse from Belguim though he had a MC this course last year a week earlier he won on challenge tour so may been to much to handle.A better player now and bold showing expect from him


    This guy was best on challenge tour but been taking time to adjust.Last 2weeks been better.Was 20th in Crans last week type of power layout got this be right for him.Another good week for him


    Last 5 events he MC so not inspring form figures to go on but he is a highly talented player.Who big things expect from him but a return here where was midfield last year.So a better performance this week.

    Also having a bet on Web.com events over next few weeks there big weeks event that happen.1st event is Albertsons boise open


    When you think he won WGC Matchplay in 2012 done well in majors to a fall from grace from him.But last event on PGA tour he play well in Wyndham.This big drop in grade think can get carear back on track.

    AUSTIN COOK 50/1

    Already got tour card be on main tour next eason.So can play this week with freedom.And did well last year open with 3rounds in 60s before a closing 70 put paid to his chances.He star of future see him doing well.


    This the guy who nearly gave me 400/1 winner in greenbreir classic.Since then not done a lot but expect him to do good here


    A talented kid who shot good scores on main tour he WD last week but be playing this week while recent form not good think can be week he turn that around

    BigG any bets this week

    I am £478.65 up on the year!! I am happy with that and have had some good winners this year!!

    I bet you two are well up too!!

    Good point that Raymo, I knew I was doing well overall, but I hadn’t kept any
    record of winning win/place bets. I had a run through and made a list for my
    information, but I’ll copy it here. I’m going to keep a proper tally from now
    on including my + or – tally. I’ll sit down and work it out for this year so
    far, considering I have 2 and sometimes 3 players bet in each tournament. I’ll
    come back with that figure once I tot it up, my bets are £10 e/w or £20 on the
    nose depending on the odds. This is it to date.

    August Paul Lawrie Matchplay – Adrian Otaugui 28/1 Won
    ” Dell Tech C’ship – Justin Thomas 22/1 Won

    I’ve just gone back over Darren’s thread and all above are listed. I should start
    looking at the major threads, I know I’ve got a good few decent priced in-play bets
    on them. I’ve not included in the line up above individual round bets, such as Thomas
    at the Dell (mentioned in this thread) who I took at 20s for 3rd round leader, which he
    was. I did well enough in the majors in-play, but if they are not mentioned before hand
    (or slip shown) I wont include them. I’m going to sit with my calculator and work out the
    profit and loss, which will take me a while, and I’ll post it later.

    Thanks for bringing this up Raymo, I should have been doing it from the start. Once I’ve
    caught up I’ll keep it going.

    My bets for the BMW and KLM tournaments coming up later, this took me a lot longer than I
    thought it would :wacko:

    KLM Open

    ADRIAN OTAEGUI 50/1 Betfred (66/1 1st round leader)

    He did me a good turn winning the Paul Lawrie Match Play 2 weeks
    ago and had played a very decent round the week before for T5 in
    the Porsche Europen Open. He just missed the cut last time out, but
    if he can be forgiven that then he is very much the man in form.
    He’s certainly not a 50/1 shot IMO.

    DYLAN FRITTELLI 50/1 Paddy power 6 places (66/1 1st round leader)

    Frittelli is also one that did me a good turn back in June in the
    Lyoness Open. He’s not been in that kind of form since, although he
    hinted at coming back to form in the Czech Masters a couple of weeks
    back with a fairly solid T25. Finished just outside of that last time
    out T37 in the European Masters, but he finished with a nice 66. Hopefully
    he has his eye back in and can compete here this week.

    BMW Championship

    MARC LEISHMAN 40/1 PP 6 places (50/1 1st round leader)

    This Aussie has been hammering on the door for the last couple of months,
    5th in the Quicken Loans in July, and despite a poor 76 in the 2nd round
    of The Open that month, he stormed home with 66 and 65 in the last 2 rounds
    for T6. T13 in the PGA last month and he showed he’s still in great form
    last time out in the Dell Technologies Championship with outright 3rd.
    He held his nerve well with his only win this year at the Arnold Palmer
    International in March with a closing 69. I like his chances.

    PATRICK CANTLAY 50/1 (50/1 1st round leader)

    I’ve not backed Cantley before, but I thought he looked a pretty solid
    player last time out in the Dell Technologies (T13) and the previous week
    in the Northern Trust (T10). I wasn’t that aware of him before, but looking
    back he finished 2nd in the Valspar in March and T3 in the Heritage the following
    month. He’s still looking for his maiden win, but at 25 he looks on the up and
    worth taking a chance with.

    Good luck this week guy :good:

    It’s going pretty well in the BMW Championship with Leishman. He’s 5 clear of
    the field, but I’m not counting my chickens just yet. We’ve all seen before a
    collapse of even the great players, McIlroy and Adam Scott included. I’ve already
    had a good pay day with Leishman in the 1st round betting, he topped that and I’m
    500 quid to the good (he was 40/1 and not 50/1 as I mistakenly posted). The position
    with Leishman now is that Paddy Power are offering me £503.76 cash out at this point……

    13/09/2017 Single Each-Way
    Marc Leishman @ 40/1
    Outright Betting
    BMW Championship Outright Betting £30.00 Pending

    Cash Out for
    Partial Cash Out is available for this bet

    Fortunately I stuck £15e/w on him rather than my usual £10e/w as I was a good
    bit in credit with them. The cash out was tempting, it would mean dropping
    a potential £250, but it would be money in pocket. I’ve decided not to take the
    cash out, but I’m taking some insurance and sticking £50 on both Fowler and Day,
    both at 6/1, and 5 behind, and £20 on Rose at 33/1, who is 7 behind. There are a
    cluster of players at 11 under, 8 off the pace, but unless someone does what
    Leishman did in the 1st round, and shoots a 62, I don’t think they can catch him.
    I’ll stick with the 3 bets costing me £110, and as long as there isn’t a disaster
    I’m just dropping that as opposed to the £250 taking the cash out. I hope that’s
    me safe, but you never know in this game :unsure:

    Raymo your sitting nicely with Ryan Moore, 11 under T5 at 200/1. I hope he doesn’t
    catch my man, but your’re in with a very big shout of a nice e/w at that price. I
    think your nearest guy is Berger Darren. There’s a pile of players above him, but
    he’s still only 3 shots off 5th spot at the moment. He’ll have to shoot low for the
    place money at 66/1, but he’s the type of player to do that.

    Good luck tonight guys :good:

    Bets for Tennis

    DANNI MEDVEDEV 20/1 Win ATP ST Petersburg

    Change mind on this event my pick in bottom half of draw on paper looks hard.But Tsonga put in a lot of effort in Davis cup so is passed over.My bet did find a bit of form on hardcourts lost to Edmund in Winston salem.Draw looks ok for him to progress

    RICHARD GASQUET 9/1 Win ATP Moseile open

    With David Goffin in davis cup action think title go to a frenchman.Gasquet loves fast indoor courts suprise not won here yet.Can put that right this year.Giles Muller look tired now.And think Richard get to final

    JOHANNA KONTA 8/1 Win WTA Toray Pan Pacific open

    Has cosy draw up to last 4 where could face Kerber or Pliskova but not certain either of those 2 get that far.Konta has good record in Asia can take title

    JELENA OSTAPENKO 6/1 To win WTA Seoul open

    Has 1st match vs Larsson which be a nice easy one for her and back on bouncy hardcourts expect her to thrive here.And do better than she showed in American hardcourts events.

    Good Luck with Leishman G it is surely his to lose but like you say we have all seen players throw it away from that position. Fingers crossed for you.

    I had Pepperill placed in Holland so got a few quid back for that and hope I can get a place in the BMW but I doubt any of mine or anyone else’s can catch your man!!
