    I can’t believe that Niemann missed that 5 footer on the last. He would have
    been 2 up after English bogied on 17. It’s pretty sure that English, who’s birdied
    the 18th 2 times out of 3 will get one tonight and it will be tied, or worse he
    gets an albatross and I’m screwed. I’d forgotten that behind the couch feeling,
    but it’s right back with me :wacko:

    Ante post bets for USPGA Championship


    A major winner already he is i feel love this course at Kiwaih Island where got a layout similar to saw grass and Harbour town 2 courses already won at


    This young talent from Norway is fine talent and he someone I expect keep in form this year think Morikawa won this major no reason why yhis talent not make a impact here.


    Has ideal game being a former winner at Harbour town it not be forgotten has form in majors a wild drive cost him a win at Chambers Bay in US open so while quiet now he sparkle into form soon.

    Good to see you back with us this week Raymo, and I hope your
    mum in law is doing okay :good:

    Sony Open

    Joaquin Niemann 25/1 (40/1 1st round leader market)

    I was going to leave Joaquin out this week, I thought it might take
    him a week or 2 to get over just missing out last week at Kapalua
    where he should have won it in regulation. That 5 footer missed on
    the 18th will give him a few restless nights. Having said that, I’d
    kick myself if he manages to put it behind him and plays the same golf
    that saw him finish with a superb 64 (should have been 63). If he’s in
    the mood he would have every chance here.

    Lanto Griffin 40/1 (55/1 1st round leader market)

    He looked like he was hitting good form at the tail end of last year with
    T7 in the CJ Cup and T11 in the Zozo Championship but then tailed off a
    bit with T58 in the Houston Open and missing the cut at the Masters. He
    looked back in the groove with T2 at the QBE Shootout and last week’s T13
    at the Sentry. He likes it here, finishing T7 last year and if he could
    replicate his closing round 64 in the 1st round I reckon that would probably
    be enough for 1st round leader.

    Sebastian Munoz 50/1 (60/1 1st round leader market)

    I’m sticking with Seb this week, he did well to finish T17 at the Sentry
    considering he had a pish poor 1st round 75. Rounds of 66, 67 and 68
    followed, and the worst of those 3 in the 1st round would have had him
    T5. I think he’s in good shape and will fancy his chances this week.

    Harry Higgs 200/1 (150/1 1st round leader market)

    I’m taking a bit of a punt on Harry, I like the guy and his swash buckling
    style. A bit like John Daly although not quite as talanted. He does hit some
    decent rounds though as in his runner up in the Safeway Open last September.
    He’s not played since early December, after missing the cut at the Mayakoba.
    With his build I’d say he likes his beer, so I hope he’s been putting in a bit
    of practice at the golf and not just celebrating the New Year. His 1st round
    will tell what way he’s going.

    That’s it chaps, I hit the crossbar last week although the E/W covered my
    bets okay. Best of luck this week :good:

    1st winner of new season in Tennis with
    Hurcacz at 17/4 winner at Delray Beach not drop a set as well

    Great stuff Darren, that’s the way to start the new season. Both
    your horses and tennis have made a great start to the year, very
    well done mate :good:

    Guys how you think it go at halfway stage Griffin going ok while BigG got Neimann and Morikawa for me

    • Total Posts 9010

    With 2 rounds to go it’s as wide open as you could ask for. Niemann had
    an average round but I’m happy enough with where he is and Morikawa looks
    in terrific form with a nice 65. They both have great chances but Lanto
    Griffin isn’t too far back at 7 under and he would be a great winner for
    the thread as we are all on him. I don’t see Nick Taylor keeping his lead,
    I’m more concerned to see Webb Simpson up there at 10 under. Moving day
    today, hopefully we can all be in there with a shout tomorrow :good:
