Looks like I am first in for the US OPEN !!
I have actually backed six in this!!
All eight places
Henrik Stenson 30/1
Emiliano Grillo 100/1
Xander Schauffele 100/1
Russell Henley 150/1
Patrick Rodgers 225/1
Andrew Johnston 250/1
I hope they make it tough like a US Open should be. But am not too optimistic after hearing the fairwasy are going to be 50 % wider than last time it was played here !!
Would love it to be tight and reward straight hitters in stead of the bombers who spray it everywhere and get away with it but hey ho moan over!!
Good Luck GuysJune 13, 2018 at 08:57 #1356739

Also BRADEN THORNBERRY 4/1 Top amutuer
Impress many last week and looks a top prospect for me will turn pro soon and think can win this market
SI WOO KIM 9/1 Top asian
With Matsuyama not in best form since return from injury so for me Kim will enjoy this layout this week and for me this will suit him and for me be top asianJune 14, 2018 at 00:27 #1356801

As I’ve said before, I only bet on the majors and have been on reed and Kuchar every tournament for the last three years in the belief they’d win one soon.
Thankfully Reed did the business at Augusta for me. So I can give him a miss now. Still have to back Kuchar of course though.
2 points each way Kuchar @ 70/1
2 points each way Matsuyama @ 33/1
3 points each way Rose @ 12/1
3 points each way Fowler @ 20/1
20 point outlayJune 14, 2018 at 02:14 #1356802
Jason Day 18/1 (28/1 1st round leader market)
The fairways may be wide open, but it’s the touch players that are going
to win this. Land your ball in the wrong place on the upturned saucer
greens and you are staring bogey or double in the face. Day has been
electric with the putter and his short game isn’t far behind. Two wins
this year and he always plays well in the US Open (5 top 10s in 7 US
Opens) I think he’s the man to beat.
Brooks Koepka 25/1 (33/1 1st round leader betting)
Definitely looks like he’s well over his wrist injury, which is borne
out by his T11 in the Masters followed by runner up in the Fort Worth
Invitational. Last week’s T30 at the Fedex St Jude I think was all about
getting his game ready for this week. The stats tell you that it’s unlikely
that he will win this week, back to back US Open winners are as rare as hens
teeth. I say stats are there to be broken and I give him every chance here.
Bryson DeChambeau 40/1 (50/1 1st round leader market)
He’s a player I like a lot, and he did me a good turn in the Memorial on his
last start a couple of weeks back. Four top 5s in his last 7 starts say it
all, he’s in blistering good form. He has the game to win this, it’s just a
matter of whether he’s ready for it. He bombed out last year with a 74,76, but
he went into it on the back of 7 missed cuts. It’s a different kettle of fish
this year, he’s suddenly realised that he’s bloody good.
Webb Simpson 66/1 (66/1 1st round leader market)
A previous winner in 2012, but not come close since. However, his game is firing
on all cylinders at the moment with a win at the Players Championship last but
one time out. That wasn’t a one off, he’s had 5 top 10s this year and although he
didn’t exactly set the heather alight last time out at the Fort Worth Invitational
he is in with a realistic shout. 66/1 is too big (outright and 1st round) for someone
who started the Players 66,63.
Jimmy Walker 90/1 (80/1 1st round leader market)
Considering the health problems Walker has had, he’s done really well with
his comeback. He started to look like the player of old 2 months back with
4th place in the Texas Open. He looked even better when joint runner up in
the Players and followed that with a T6 at the Byron Nelson. I can see him
finishing in the top 8, and at 90/1 that’s a worthwhile bet.
Looking forward to this one, and nice to see that MOM and Botchy have thrown
their hats into the ring with us golfing diehards. Best of luck this week guysJune 14, 2018 at 16:56 #1356846
This looks like being very interesting!!
Pro golfers struggling to make par warms the cockles of my heart!!
This is what a US Open should be like!!
Win lose or draw I am going to enjoy this!!June 14, 2018 at 19:16 #1356849
I agree Raymo, I’m enjoying this. I had considered Molinari before this as he’s a very good
golfer on his day, but he doesn’t do well on the other side of the pond. He’s just birdied his
2nd hole for 1 under, and although it’s very speculative (well it always is) I’ve taken him at
40s in the 1st round betting. I don’t think he can win this outright, but if he’s on a going day
today then he could just give them a shock. 20 quid at 40s.June 14, 2018 at 20:09 #1356852
I backed Russell Henley on the machine at 180/1 to win G and have just laid him back at 65/1 had £20 on and laid £50 back!! LOL thirty quid if he loses and three hundred if he wins!! LOL
And I have still got him in my proper bet!!
I was looking and last something like seven of the first ten after round one finished in the first ten at the end.
Interesting stat if you are near the top after round one!!June 14, 2018 at 20:17 #1356853
DJ on the move!! Gulp!!June 14, 2018 at 20:28 #1356854
Wow that’s some start by Henley Raymo, you’re ahead of the pack with that bet
already….well done mate
I agree Raymo, it’s worrying with DJ on the move and not one of us has a bean on him.
He just rolled one in from about 20 feet to go to 2 under. Gulp indeedJune 15, 2018 at 01:54 #1356871
Your man Henley is doing you proud Raymo, it’s a pity you didn’t have
him in the 1st round betting as well. It may have been a 4 way tie at
the top, but splitting it with the other 3 at 125/1 would still have
been a nice bit of business.
It’s been a bit of a disaster 1st day for me, two of mine at 5 under and
two at 6 under. Not exactly what I was looking for, but with the way this
course is playing I wouldn’t say they were out of it all together. Those
at the head could just as easily hit a 76, although DJ looks to have one
hand on the trophy already. Maybe things might turn for me tomorrow, but
I can see me having to reassess at the halfway point. You are burning the
torch for the lot of us at this point Raymo, lets hope we might catch up
a bitJune 15, 2018 at 10:25 #1356882
After round one for me SI WOO KIM,X Schaufelle and L Oosthuizein are hanging in there they areJune 15, 2018 at 10:59 #1356885
It is still a long three days to go guys!!
Lots of changes and a double bogey can make a right mess of your card.
Hopeful rather than confident at the moment.
Five of my six are still in the top twenty but I can see the wheels falling off at some time.
DJ looks like the one to beat though!!June 15, 2018 at 17:38 #1356908
DJ and Tommy playing well!!
Only four players under par today so far. One or two over aint a bad score!! LOL
To be honest at this stage it looks like DJ’s to lose!!
But he has self destructed before!!
