    BigG how think final round will go Schauffele takes a shot lead after 54holes he normally wins event by doing a crazy final round like when won here last year.Who knows maybe Woodland could do it to him get revenge I know you got him mate and Niemann DJ other chance to

    It’s a hard one to call Darren, your man Schauffele has every chance even although I think
    it’s his 1st time of trying to win from the front on the final day. I hope he keeps his bottle
    and I think he will. The bigger problem is that he has JT right behind him and he’s a class act.
    I think that my man Simpson is not out of it, but he’s going to have to hit something like 66 to
    have a chance. It was frustrating watching Niemann last night, he missed so many putts that he
    should have holed, and then he lost concentration and droppped shots at 16 and 17. I think the
    best I can hope for with him is keeping in the place money, and at 50/1 I’d settle for that. I
    have Simpson on the nose only, so nothing short of a win will do for him.

    Very best of luck tonight mate, I’ve had a return with Niemann already, I’d be happy for us both
    to get a return in the 1st week so I’ll be shouting your man on if Simpson is out of it :good:

    Your man Schauffele has taken a bit of a battering the last few holes Darren, JT has birdied the
    last 4 to put himself 3 ahead on the 12th. It’s going to be hard for Schauffele, but he’s a top
    player and Bet365 have pushed him out to 16/1, he’s generally 12s elsewhere. I think that’s too
    big so I’m piggybacking onto your man. Niemann is 5 back and has just gone T6 so I need him to
    pick up a birdie if he’s to get into the place money. We’re still hanging in there mate :good:

    I can hardly believe what I’m seeing here. Standing on the 18th Tee JT is 1/6 favourite.
    Ten minutes later Schauffele is 1/10 fav when JT sticks it into the long grass. Schauffele
    has it on the green in 2 and has 2 puts for the win……..blows it :wacko:

    Darren mate you must be pulling your hair out behind the couch just now. At least he still has
    a chance in the 3 way play off. Hang in there :wacko:

    JT wins the play-off. I’m sick for you Darren, Schauffele had it in the bag and
    blew it. That’s the most bizarre finish to a tournament I’ve seen in many a year.
    Bad luck mate.

    Bets for Sony open the SA Open tomorrow


    While he makes his debut at this venue he has strong ties to courses in Hawalii played on there courses as a youngster he was 7th in Sentry last week that fine by him.And this course this week not about power which will suit him very much.


    Has fine course form here and while be 1st event of new season for him I doubt he be rusty was 4th here last year where weekend scores of 63 and 65 showed can handle it and low scoring events good for him.He be mad that not won on tour in 2019 make up this year.


    12months ago was in rankings at 2000 now he is 61 after 2wins back to back look like could add a 3rd in RSM but unable to do to so.But forgive him last week a course where power is something he lacks.And back to a more suited course every chance bounces back was 12th here in 2012.

    JT POSTON 66/1

    He showed up well last week but then he faded that was a elite event but was 11th and good by him it is and now in terms of course form here was 20th here last year since then gone on to add a PGA title this guy can deliver the goods again.

    Bets for South African open


    There was enough by him last time out was 3rd at Leoopard creek to suggest he looks like get carear back on track after injury issues.And while was 3rd in this event last year behind a rampant Oosthuizein there every chance can go even closer.


    This a classy player and always one keep a eye when he returns home and already a winner of this event at a different course.Was 13th in Maurituis and that a good effort by him can be a big runner here


    I felt last year played well in events thought would win a trophy but sadly not happen this big hitter will be well suited to this layout was 7th here on both starts


    There a lot of talented young players out there was tempted by Martyn Vorster but in end gone with this guy was 42nd at Leopard creek last time he best young talent in South Africa and will not get scared if up there at weekend.

    Might have bets in Hong Kong open as well if do they be here tomorrow

    Any bets BigG and hope Raymo ok to.

    Sony Open

    Sungjae Im 25/1 (35/1 1st round leader market)

    I’ve had him on the radar for some time now, he’s a young player that has a
    great game and at 21 he will only get better. He hasn’t had that 1st win on the
    PGA Tour, but it cant be far away. A 2nd and a 3rd in his last 5 tournament and
    T11 last time out in the WGC HSBC Champions. He did well enough in his 1st appearance
    here last year with a T16 finish. I think he has a big shout here.

    Joaquin Niemann 33/1 (40/1 1st round leader market)

    Another young player who regularly gets into my stable of would be winners, and he
    did me well last week with his 1st round lead in the Sentry. Although he didn’t go
    on and win, he did get into the place money in T5. He’s already had his maiden win
    with the Greenbrier back in September and he’s in form at the moment so I think he’s
    one of the more likely winners here.

    Cameron Smith 50/1 (50/1 1st round leader market)

    As frustrating as he sometimes is, he is still very capable of competing with the
    best. He regularly scores in the low 60s, so well worth a pop in the 1st round betting,
    but he’s also capable of ruining a good round with double and triple bogies. He was in
    decent enough form in his last 3 outings T13 in the Shriners, was even clsor in T3 in the
    CJ Cup @ Nine bridges but he transformed from Dr Jekyll to Mr Hide in WGC HSBC Champions
    with not just a double bogey, but a 5 over par 10 at the par 5 8th :wacko:
    You pays your money you takes your chance with him.

    Sebastian Munoz 66/1 (60/1 1st round leader market)

    He returned after after his Christmas break last week and was solid enough with a T17
    at the Sentry. A winner last tail end at the Sanderson Farms and went close with his
    last of 2019 with a 3rd place in the RSM Classic. Has already played round here and
    did well at his 1st attempt with a T10. He has a very real chance of competing here
    at very big odds. I fancy his chances a good deal.

    I got my bets on for this and the South African open a couple of days ago, i’m just
    getting round to updating on here and I’ll write up SA Open a little later tonight.
    Best of luck Darren, I hope our good pal Raymo returns to the fold this week :good:

    South African Open

    Thomas Detry 16/1 (18/1 1st round leader market, Firethorn course)

    He must be scratching his head as to how he’s not managed to notch up a win on
    the tour yet. He had every chance to win the Nedbank in November when joint leader
    going into the last round, a poor final round 74 saw him in T3. He wasn’t far off
    last time out either in the Mauritius open in December, T4, where a bogey at the 17th
    saw him miss out on a 3 way play-off. He’s had a month to reflect on those finishes,
    and hopefully coming here fresh he might just finally get that monkey off his back.

    Christiaan Bezuidenhout 33/1 (25/1 1st round leader market, Bushwillow Course)

    The percentage call in this, is that it will be a South African that raises the trophy
    come Sunday afternoon. Oosthuizen and Schwartzel are 2 of the more likely lads, but I’m
    giving the shout to one of the younger generation with Bezuidenhout. He’s had a string of
    top 10s last year, and managed to get over the line with his maiden win in the Andalucia
    Masters. I hope he’s not been letting himself go over the festive period as this is his
    1st week back for a month. I’d imagine this is a competition he’d like to win more than
    most with it being his national. He didn’t make the cut last year, but he’s a much better
    player since then and a tour winner.

    Louis De Jager 110/1 (45/1 1st round leader market, Firethorn course)

    He’s most certainly not a player to risk your mortgage on, but he’s well capable of
    having some terrific rounds, such as his final round 64 in the Mauritius Open last
    month. He was another who missed the 3 way play-off by 1 shot, but not because of
    his final round, it was his level par 72 that did the damage in the 1st round. It’s
    not impossible, but I don’t expect him to win this. I do however think he has a
    good chance of leading half the field in his 1st round course at Firethorn. He
    won me a packet at around 100/1 a while back with one of his low 1st round
    rounds and paid for my complete Cheltenham Gold Cup day, bets and all, so I’m
    hoping he can do me a favour here again with the Festival not that far off.

    That’s me done Darren, best of luck mate you were ROBBED last week. I hope we
    see our amigo Raymo soon, I’m fair missing him :cry:

    BigG any views on Golf so far happy in Sony Open with Morikawa takes a 2 shot lead into it while Todd doing ok to

    While in SA the rag for me 400/1 Schaper is joint 2nd not expect that Porteous other hope there is 6under

    • Total Posts 7590

    Your man Schaper had another good round in South Africa Darren, he’s 1 off the lead.
    I hope he can make up for Schauffele last week, you deserve a win this week mate. I’m
    hanging in there on 6 under with Detry, the same as Porteous for yourself.

    They are under way in Hawaii and Morikawa has played 5 but dropped a shot. There’s
    plenty of time for him to make that up and he’s a real young talant. He had some 1st
    round, I wished I had stuck him down and I did consider him, he’s in the same kind of
    vein as Munoz and Niemann, they are all young players going places. I’m pleased that
    Cameron Smith, who we’ve both been a fan of, has had a cracking 2nd round with a 5
    under 65. He’s T2 at the moment having finished, but I’d expect he might be a bit
    further back once the 2nd round is done.

    Good luck with Morikawa tonight, I’ll keep an eye on him for you :good:

    Tennis bets for next week last week best bet was Wozniacki but lost her semi final in 3sets.


    Only 19 but done a lot already i feel a few players look at Aussie open a week later but this a event that FAA can take very serious draw is kind as well.A qualifer up 1st after that then Duckworth and 1st test be Verdasco or Struff.Rublev in last 4 but a chance may not get that far after being in final at Doha.

    DANIELLE COLLINS 40/1 WTA Adelaide international

    Should get past early round then a match with Kenin who took a set off Osaka last week.But if beat her then likely face Belinda Bencic however she one those big names who look to save energy for Aussie open so a early exit for her.And every chance Collins can make a impact here.


    A qualifer have to face then winner of Lopez vs Andjaar if win those matches then the mad one that is Fognini but he can take care of him.While Kchananov awaits in last 4 fact Medvedev not here down to tired out in ATP same thing likely for KK.

    ANNA BLINKOVA 33/1 WTA Hobart international

    Cause a shock last week in beating Bencic and every chance cause more issues for players this week likely to face Muguruza in 2nd round but can beat her as shown vs Bencic.After that could be Cici bells or Kudermotva 2 young players but a chance take on Anna.
