Stunning finish from Molinari. He is a machine.

Love watching him play golf, if he had more self belief in his putting under the severest of pressure, a major would be on the cards. Seems to crumble a bit in the big four.

Tiger looking good again this week. 

 

If he continues to improve as he did at Muirfield Village, only a matter of time before he wins again.

If he made any putts this weekend he probably would have won. Think he was 1st in a few categories but about 70th in putting missing loads from inside 10 and 5 feet. His approach play his been pretty incredible in his last few tournaments. He will defo win soon IMO.

DJ wins by 6, holing out for victory. Most laid back sportsmen on the planet!

I had a few pounds on Andrew Putnam before the off at 125/1 solely because he'd been high up on the leaderboards of recent pga tournies. 

I cannot complain thought in light of the fact i won a decent few quid the week before on Bryson Dechambeau who was the leader going into round 4 however I didn't hold much hope for Putnam when he was up against big DJ whose warming up for the US Open and when I saw the double bogey at the first hole knew it was never in doubt. 

However, young Andrew has been playing consistent tidy golf and at these sorts of prices may be worth a punt in future tournaments when the likes of Big DJ is not involved but golf is a very hard unpredictable sport to call and being honest I thought Bryson had blown it last week when it went to a play off but he prevailed and I was delighted.

i have more joy betting with the pga though than the european ones. When big DJ is in form and blasting over 350 yard tee shots leaving him 25 feet or so for an eagle its hard to bet against him.

A terrific sport. Love it.

I always bet on outsiders or at least bet on great players who start slowly whereby their odds lengthen after day 1 but you know they're good enough to turn it round even if they're 10+ shots behind. Always looking for value. No point in betting on big players at short odds IMO. Too much risk for little reward, generally speaking.

There will always be tournaments where the likes of DJ, Rory, Thomas, Day, Spieth etc will play lights out golf though and blow the field away but more often than not if you stick with outsiders you certainly win a fair few times and at great odds! Some of the odds you get on some players is incredible. It's an absolute minefield picking winners at times but the good thing with that is the bookies don't know what to do and pretty much overprice everyone outside the top 10 or so.

I couldn't have put it better myself. 

Its an incredibly difficult call to bet on the outright winner and if big DJ hadn't been in this field I would have had a big priced winner. However most of the time its outside of the big name players who win the tour championships and its worth sticking with anyone you think has a chance above 33/1. I've had some big priced winners but also a run of months without a win and therefore know through experience how difficult it is to back the O/R winner before the off. 

Its so random but if picked correctly big prices are available.

Love it!

Shinnecock is looking brutal so far. Some massive scores. A few holes look nigh on unplayable. 

Canny beat it!

So many big hitters looking shellshocked! Rory, Day, Spieth, Mickelson, Watson & Schwartzel a combined +50! Just mental!

Woods off to a shocker too!

The ironic thing is no one is out of this yet (well apart from Gregory!) but right not you can get the likes of Rory at 300s, Day at 200s. There COULD be some decent EW there. If one big name gets a decent round tomorrow and the field come back the way, anything is possible at some massive odds...........

A very tough day out there and who would have bet on Rory being plus ten? Anyone sitting out there on around minus 5 or less still has a good shout in my opinion and tomorrow will give us a better indication of likely winners. I hate seeing bog standard tour journeymen who never look like winning ordinary tour competitions prevailing at majors for normally its a huge win for the bookies and not us punters. Albeit, hope one of us on here has a few quid on the winner no matter who wins it in the end-up.

Big DJ ripping it up. Love the big guy, thick as fuck but knows how to score. 

 

The other week that dark haired good looking Sky chick interviewed him, he did not have a clue what she was asking him.

What an effort from Spieth and Mickelson to stay in it!

Koepka though looks very ominous. 6 under through his last 10!
