    Tough going in Spain after 2rounds guys i expect that to very hard course

    • Total Posts 7590

    Halfway stage in Spain, and it does look tough Darren. It was a 4 way tie
    for he lead on the 1st day and my man Conor Syme, despite a double bogey
    start, was one of the leaders. So a good pay day at 50/1 for the place and
    the win quartered so 12.5/1 win. Pity you didn’t have Migliozzi in the 1st
    round Raymo, he was 90/1 in the 1st round betting, but he’s not far off at
    +1 and should go well. I was kicking myself, I’ve had him in my picks 7 times
    in the past 2 months, and left him out this week, he would have been a nice
    start along with Syme. Syme is T2 two shots off the lead and I’m hopeful he
    can go well today.

    Good luck over the weekend guys :good:

    Looks real tough in Spain (Good!!)
    I have backed Guido before Graham and he won the Belgian Matchplay for me I think. He tends to be a pretty straight hitter which is what you need round here though.

    Good luck for the weekend guys :good: :good:

    Harding toss it away with drive on 18th hole when joint leader gutted and gutted

    Still hopes for Thomas and Schauffele last name back to win with and without handicap.

    I felt for you Darren when Harding made a complete mess of the last. It’s still a decent
    place, but he could have been the winner, even a par would have had him in a play-off.
    Hope you have better luck in the Tour tonight, Schauffele and Thomas both in with a
    big shout. Good luck mate :good:

    Bad luck with Harding Darren!! My mate who I play golf with backed him as well so double consolation giving for me!
    A place for me with Guido at 125/1 and Graham I don’t know whether you backed Syme each way or how many places so maybe he squeezed in a place if so well done if not bad luck.
    The fed ex looks DJ’s to lose but he has done so before but he does look good at the moment. It is quite close I think for the 72 hole scoring apart from him and Xander.
    By my reckoning its Xander -11 DJ -9 then JT Morikawa and Sheffler -7 then Im Berger Hatton and Ancer -6 and a bunch on -5 including my Hughes LOL.
    For an extra interest I have backed Morikawa at 16/1 72 holes

    Good Luck tonight guys :good: :good:

    Bets for Portgual masters


    Not a winner in Europe but could change this week been playing well over last 5weeks and got decent course form here as well.12th in 2018 best showing here with doubts over Fleetwood look at bigger events think go well.


    Was 2nd here last year and a terrific player when in form and for me was 6th in a event in the UK swing as well looks to getting that form back and a big chance here.


    Was 14th here on debut last year but the thing stand out is four rounds he had were better each day finish with a 65 and fact play well at Valderama last week suggest got every chance here.


    2 of his best showings on tour been here was 4th last and been 16th to while form since Lockdown not been at his best a return to a venue that he likes can see that form return.

    Safeway open


    Former winner here in 2015 can win this trophy back again was 3rd in 3M open and 9th in Barracudda and while been sad not be at East lake he one of those can rebound and end a trophy drought since last win here.


    Still a maiden on PGA tour always seem to buckle on final round but has got decent form here best showing here was 14th true not a top ten has play well since return with 7th at Wyndham and 29th in PGA Championship.


    Going back to 2015 event here this guy was 5th he a player a lot hype about it true he never match what Tiger done as a pro but did match him at college and was 18th at Memorial best showing since return only a matter of time before wins.


    Was 52nd on debut here last year it true not shoot a round in the 60s he can improve on that this week since last year been 5th at Pebble beach profile he got like Champ last year who won here on 2nd start should not be under estimated.


    Like Maverick makes a second time play here this week on debut here last year was 52nd here but has that potential rate higher here was 3rd in 3M open and 13th in Northern trust this the type of event make a impact at.


    This a young kid play in only 9 events 5 of those in PGA tour best showing was 33rd here last year which brilliant by him he was 10th best player at Stanford college we see this kids like this out of college do well.Fact got form here last year could be latest new kid on the block.

    Good luck guys

    Morning Darren and Raymo, my birthday yesterday and I got caught up
    in it all with family. Was a great day but I nearly missed the golf.
    Last minute dash and I’ll stick a few on before they tee off.

    Haotong Li 25/1 (35/1 1st round leader market)

    I don’t know what his problem was last week when he retired in the 1st round
    of the Andalucia Masters, he’d only played 3 holes. It could have been that he
    threw in the towel after a bogey and quadrupel bogey start. However, this is the
    same guy that started 67, 65 in the US PGA for a T17 and then a top 10 in Wales
    so his game isn’t far off and good enough to win here.

    Thorbjorn Olesen 40/1 (55/1 1st round leader market)

    He made the cut, but struggled as most of them did in th Andalucia Masters
    last week. He showed a snippet of how good he can be the week before in
    th Handa UK Championship where he finished with a 68 to get inside the top
    20. He’s still not, IMO, got his head right with his trial coming up next
    year, but he could run away with a tournament like this if he was playing
    like his old self. I’ll give him another chance.

    Guido Migliozzi 40/1 (50/1 1st round leader market)

    Darren you’ve already made tha case for Migliozzi, I’m happy to agree with
    your assessment, he has a good chance.

    Toby Tree 250/1 (125/1 1st round leader market)

    He caught my eye last month in the Celtic Classic where he finished T39, but
    that was with a dire 2nd round 75. Three very good rounds show that this guy,
    who I didn’t know before that, could play a bit. He shot a couple of good rounds
    the week before in the English Championship and he did at least make the cut in
    a very tough Andalucia Masters last week. I thought he was worth another chance
    at these odds.

    I’ll get my US picks sorted out this morning and post them up later.
    Good luck guys :good:

    Safeway Open

    Got them on earlier, I’m stuck in the racing at the moment and it starts
    in an hour so I’ll just need to list them.

    Harold varner III 28/1 (45/1 1st round leader market)

    Cameron Davis 33/1 (60/1 1st round leader market)

    Charles Schwartzel 80/1 (66/1 1st round leader market)

    Harry Higgs 80/1 (66/1 1st round leader market)

    Best of luck Darren, I hope Raymo catches up with us later :good:

    • Total Posts 7590

    What a round by Higgs in the 2nd round, 10 under par and topped off with
    an albatros on the 18th. I wished he’d done that yesterday, I could have
    done with a 66/1 winner :scratch:
