    BigG and Bob good luck this week and you as well Raymo

    Also BigG any reason not on Scott i thought you put him up in your bets

    Hi Darren, I put up Scott for the Masters, Jason Day for the US Open, Sergio
    for the Open and Bubba Watson for the for the US PGA. But you’re right, I have
    bleated on about Scott for the past few months. He did me very well at the start
    of the year, and I thought he would go on and win many more after his wins at
    the Honda Classic and WGC-Cadillac Championship, but he has been out of the
    money in his last 8 starts. I kind of gave up a bit, even though he definitely
    has an A+ game when he gets it right.

    So there you go, you have sowed the seeds of doubt in me and I would hate to be
    kicking myself if he ran away with this, so I’m now adding him to my above 3 and
    hoping he gets his mojo back :good:

    ADAM SCOTT 22/1 Betfred

    I’ve posted my picks for the open in that thread. I generally concentrate on
    the Majors when they are on and don’t back outside of that, but I’ll have a couple
    in the Barbasol Championship, as I’ve had a couple of good weeks and I’m well ahead.

    CAMERON TRINGALE 80/1 Coral

    I think that with the big guns all absent, Tringale would have a decent chance of
    doing well in this. He does ok in the main tour, 2nd in the Shriners and T5 in the
    Franklin Templeton Shootout, both at the tail end of last year, and a couple of top
    20s this year. This is going to be easier, and if he can get his best game going he
    is a big price. Worth a few quid e/w.

    BEN MARTIN 28/1

    I’m with you Darren on Martin. He is a bit like Tringale, in that he hasn’t managed to
    hit the heights in the main tour, although he has got a decent game. You have to go back
    the best part of 2 years to find his last win, in the Shriners, but he did manage T4 in
    the Players at the end of last year. His best this year has been a couple of top 20s and
    a good finish in the Barracuda, but he could be the class in the field and 28/1 is not a
    bad bet.

    Best of luck guys with these bets, and those in the Open too :good:

    SERGIO GARCIA 40/1 (ante post)

    After discussing long term fancies for the Majors with Darren back in January I
    had a few quid on Sergio at 40/1. He still has the game to win a Major and his
    recent form, 3rd in the Open De Espana, T5 in the US Open and T5 in the bmw
    International, show that he is on top of his game at the moment.

    BRANDON GRACE 33/1

    I wish I had had the presence of mind to take him at the 66/1 that Darren grabbed
    him at months ago, but 33/1 is still really good value for a player that has a
    great game for links golf. He was the same as Sergio, T5 in the US Open, and
    3rd round aside he had a nice pre Open tournament at the Scottish Open finishing
    T29.

    DANNY WILLET 60/1

    I don’t think Willet is a one hit wonder, with his win at the Masters, I think he
    has the game and the temperament to add to his maiden Major triumph. He does have
    to bounce back from 2 pretty dismal events in the BMW International and the Open
    de France, where he missed the cut in both, but 60/1 is far too big for a player
    of his calibre.

    As per usual, I’ll stick to just a few to keep my powder dry in case it all goes
    pear shaped by the half way stage, but I’m hopeful one of the 3 can pull it off.

    Best of luck to all :good:

    Looking at the beautiful photos of Woolfall Treasure, make me both incredibly sad
    and incredibly angry. I’ve dealt with plenty of wicked people in my lifetime, but
    the senselessness behind this defies belief.

    I hope he didn’t suffer too much, I hope this sick b*****d does.

    Thanks Bobby and Kris, I’m glad Frankie didn’t make me sweat at the finish, he
    always had matters in hand. If only they were all like that. Cheers :good:

    Big G You da man AGAIN !!!

    I am kicking myself cos I have put it up ante post for the Stewards Cup Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

    I take it from that, that you hadn’t got him on yet Raymo….bugger :-(
    You can still get 16/1 if you have an account with Sportingbet, one of the few
    I don’t have an account with, I’ve no idea what they’re like. Outside of them
    Skybet are best at 14/1, that might look quite big come the day, if he gets there.

    He certainly doesn’t owe me anything now, so I might just have a few quid on him.

    looks very decent. Well done you :good:

    GOLDEN STEPS has not shown the form that won him the Stewards Cup last
    year at Goodwood, but his last run at Chester was more promising. After missing the start
    he made good ground and was closing best at the finish, beaten a fast diminishing 1 1/2L
    3rd. He runs off a reasonable mark, 99, just 3lbs up from his Stewards Cup win.

    8/1 seems a reasonable bet.
