    Can’t complain about that!! Good start for most of my guys and it is a shame that Rose just got past Xander for first round leader but apart from Simpson my original picks all did good !!

    Let’s see what Friday brings :good: :good:

    Good to see there are plenty in here sitting in a nice position after the 1st round,
    even although not one of us was on Rose :unsure: That was unfortunate Raymo that
    Xander got pipped on the final hole by Rose for 1st round leader. I hope you had him
    E/W. My man Molinari squeezed into the E/W places, but so many tied for 8th that it
    was hardly worth the bother. Tiger at 1 under is lurking there, and to be honest I’m
    surprised he managed to stay under par. He drove well enough, 71% of fairways hit, but
    his fairway irons were woeful, greens in regulation 50%. If it wasn’t for his scrambling
    he would be dead in the water by now. The new improved Tiger needs to show up today.

    I’m relieved that Scott Piercy, who was going into the par 5 18th at 5 under,
    bogied the last. I’d have been pulling my hair out if he had been joint leader.
    Sore enough that he would have been a nice 100/1 1st round place, but it could
    have been worse.

    Good luck tonight :good:

    Now it gets really interesting!!

    Four of mine have made the cut and thats good for me :good:

    To be honest I think anyone from level par or better can still win it.

    So we have a fair few still there!

    I see Fowler threw in one of his customary bad rounds and Matsuyama wasn’t great either

    Good Luck On Moving Day Guys :good: :good:

    All 5 of mine also made the cut Raymo, although none are really challenging at this point,
    Molinari at 2 under is my nearest. What a shout you have with Woodland Raymo, that was some
    round, and the huge putt on the last didn’t harm his chances any. Anyone going to challenge
    is going to have to make a move today, good luck all that still have some within hailing
    distance :good:

    Wonder if the course will start playing tougher over the weekend

    Would be good if it did, a winning score of 5 or 6 under maybe

    Hope he gets it done for you

    But as a backer of others at -3 and -4 seeing someone who finds it hard to win and has a poor record in the majors leading gives me a little hope il at least have someone in contention come sunday

    At this stage I’d be happy with one of Scott or schauffele finishing in the top 10

    Scott is -3 and dont think they’ve shown a single shot if his on the TV lol

    Good luck to woodland though he seems like a nice guy, just hope Matt Wallace doesnt win as he comes across as a colossal arsehole

    Does look much tougher today

    Fairways and greens key as the rough is so thick

    Just back in from a nice curry, and my guys aren’t making many inroads, so looking at something
    for a bit of interest in the 3rd round market, I’ve noticed that Koepka is generally 6 or 7/1,
    although he’s 4 off the lead after 8 holes, but Hills have him at 11/1, and have boosted that to
    12.14/1, so I’ve had a bash. I think in all likelihood Woodland will hang on to it, and best of luck
    Raymo, but as Koepka is someone who can string a row of birdies together I’m chancing a few quid. It
    could be a shrewd move, or it could be the the odd pint or eight of Cobra talking B-)
