A few examples, Donald to be leading Poulter after nine holes of the World Match Play… with Poulter in trouble, Donald takes four shots from 60 yards at the ninth, loses the hole and my bet is done.
Also, player calls penalty on himself (who I backed at huge odds) because his ball moved a titch of a milimetre when addressing his putt, and goes on to lose a play off.
Gary Woodland, backed at huge odds also, loses a play off after I decline to lay off when his opponent (Vegas) hits his tee shot into the water at play-off hole. Woodland goes on to shoot about 16 shots on that play-off hole and loses
More bad luck than you can ever imagine… too many incidents to mention.
This week, back Scott Jamieson to win Scottish Open at 300 (and top-10 finish at 16), back Paul Lawries at 160 (and top-5 finish at 26) and Darren Clarke at 140 (and top-5 finish at 24).
Jamieson currently joint leads on -11, Lawrie two behind on -9, Clarke on -6 but with 10 holes still to play of second round.
Betfair suspend many hours of betting becuase of the tournament being reduced to 54 holes so I can’t take full advantage of laying my picks off. Out all day tomorrow at a pre-planned and very important event so won’t be able to follow golf, i.e., bets have to ride.
I can just see this going completely pear-shaped. Fingers crossed it won’t though.
