Title: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: morgs on Monday 15 September 2008, 04:26:04 PM
A thread for all things golf, your golf, ryder cup etc.

I play off 11 but shot a 77 and 73 in the last 2 days  :pow:. practiced everyday for the last 2 weeks and it's finally paying off. won £70's worth of goods for my troubles as well.

Really looking forward to the Ryder Cup, always a good watch.

I play off 12, though I don't play much at all these days. Think I've played five rounds or something like that this year.

The last time I played golf, I must have been 16. And I was to put it bluntly, fuckin s****!

I put in three cards to obtain a handicap (which turned out to be 18) which were more rigged than the North Sea!

But I also love watching the Ryder Cup, and no offence to our US compatriots here, but when we firmly shut the mouths of those arrogant "You're the man!"  "In the hole!"  "U-S-A!"  loud mouthed fuckin Fred Couples wannabe lard arsed, shorts and sandals wearing tossers, my day could not be more fulfilled!

Love the Ryder Cup, can't wait. :D

The last 2 have been pretty s**** in terms of being close, gripping battles in all fairness, for some reason the USA just haven't been the force they usually are. Much as I would like Europe to win this weekend, my main hope is a close battle like the epic ones we had in '95, '97, '99 and 2002. All brilliant battles with some wild twists.

95 was probably my favorite.

I play off 6, damn you Ice Mag.  :angry:

unfortunately, can only listen, cos its only on sky.  tb fair radio 5 do a pretty good job.

99' sticks in the memory for me, was driving to paris when i lost reception, was convinced we had it in the bag...didnt find out for 5 days we'd blown it.

its the only sport i actually participate in these days, and im sh!t at it.

Have not played golf since I was 15 & don't intend to either.

Remember been on the 14th hole down the local golf club, the green was like an island, think I 8 putted on a Par 3 & f*cked me old mans set a clubs straight into the water. Most infuraiting sport ever...

Haha well my exact is 5.4 so chances are the next competition I play I'll be back off 6!

I've just been watching 'How the 2002 Ryder Cup was won, epic that one. Looking forward to this one, I cant see it being as close tho.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Shak on Tuesday 16 September 2008, 04:44:20 PM
Yeah I've SKY+ four so far, watched '95 yesterday and just on 97 now.

2002 I didn't get into as much as I usually would have because I'd just broken up with my girlfriend at the time and was in a bit of a humour. Definitely was brilliant though, look forward to watching that again. Azinger holing from the bunker on 18, knowing he had to to keep the entire tournament alive was insane.

havent decided whether faldo will be a liability or a big plus. if he's a liability we could lose by 3 or 4. if not should see it out comfortably. dont like the idea of this pairing countries though. i would try playing those experienced on us tour with those not so.

Yay, my chance to slag off a sport I dont like.

While I recognise the skill involved it is just THE most boring sport to watch, worse than cricket.

Having said that, I like going to Wallsend driving range and smacking some balls about.

Anyone tried that Jurassic Park Lost World crazy golf down Tynemouth?  Probably more interesting than the Ryder Cup tbh.

the artificial grass at the dinosaur golf, is too hard, and the ball just rolls forever, or untill it hits an object. its impossible to  roll up a put.

Post by: ross magoo on Thursday 18 September 2008, 10:00:07 PM
I used to play now and again but I haven't played for about two years.  I used to play about once a week and played off 18 but work commitments meant I had to give it up.

However, i've applied for a transfer within my organisation to be closer to home and it would mean being on permanent backshift starting at 4pm each day so the golf clubs will be coming out again pretty soon.

I reckon if I played three or four times a week I could get down to single figures.

This makes things a hell of a lot more interesting.

Only half a point for the Europeans this morning, barring something insane happening in the last match with Garcia just gone in the water.

We'll get back in it I'm sure, but this will completely take the pressure of the US after the last two blowouts. Fair play to them, they've been excellent.

latest score. us 3-1 europe, karlsson and casey should be put in front of a firing squad, europe lead in 3 fourballs and 1 down in the other. for those who dont know in fourballs everybody plays all the hole by themselves and you take the best score of yours and your partners ball. foursomes is alternate shots, ie i drive you take the 2nd and so on.

If Garcia beats Kim and Stenson had won - which on paper they should have - then it would have been a good line up.  No sense blaming Faldo.  Europe played really well on Saturday and Sunday, just dug too deep a hole on Friday.

Man Westwood has been playing some phenomenal golf the last year.

Leads going into the last round, got the feeling he's going to finish this one off. He's got the game to be a multiple major winner, but he's at the point where if he's going to win one, it needs to happen soon. Winning The Players would be a big step I reckon.

I recognize that s*** when I see it.

Tiger doesn't give a fuuuuuuuuuck. He'll be out there with a pool cue in a month or two.

I may have to stand corrected here.

He's just pulled out of the Players... back injury.

Saturday before the last round must have been when the premier ass was to be had, must have gotten to him last night.

Westwood again plays his worst golf of the week on Sunday.

Not a great habit to get yourself into.

Looks like Tim Clark has it won, only an Allenby birdie on #18 can force a playoff.

Right, because I'm essentially being paid to sit at home and watch football at the moment I've decided to put some solid money on this tournament.

30e on Mickelson to win at 8/1.

20e on Woods to win at 10/1.

10e on Furyk to win at 25/1.

10e on Els to win at 33/1.

10e each way on McDowell at 80/1.

5e each way on Duval at 250/1.

If at least one of those bets isn't in the running on Sunday I'm going to kill myself. :lol:

Completely fallen apart the front 9 and is more or less out of the running now, delighted I walked down and put 100 euro on him to win.

Aye, I've bet 210 on the tournament to this point.

McDowell finishing in the top 6 returns 220, so as long as he doesn't completely s*** himself I'll break even.

After that, the following will be my profits for the respective winners.

McDowell - 810
Els - 340
Mickelson - 270
Woods - 220
Havret - Suicide.

Played about a dozen or so times - anyone got any tips for an amateur novice?

I'm a fan, but haven't played for a year.  Want to start playing again soon though.

Shak would be our most regular player I think.
I used to play a lot a few years ago, nowadays I usually get around 5 rounds per season. Suppose the tips I would give is don't try to whack the ball as hard as you can, find a rhythm in your swing that works for you. Keep your head down, always focus your eyes on the ball. You will make bad shots, don't get upset or let them get to you, then you're really in the s***. Do not underestimate the wind, wind in your face can easily be two clubs difference. If possible, try and hit a few balls on the driving range and learn how fast the greens are at the putting green.

I played well over 100 rounds last summer but have barely had a chance to play this summer due to various reasons, my game has taken a massive hit as a result and I can barely play any more, going to the driving range in a bit to try and recreate some magic again...

Towelie has given pretty good advice, head still and don't try and smash the ball.

Or, look up Luke Donald's swing on youtube and just do that. :razz:

Back from that interesting round. At first, absolutely woeful but gradually got into the swing of things and started hitting it alright. A (rare) few good shots of course at least gave me some satisfaction. Pitches, chips and putting were actually alright. The rest of it, less so. Wouldn't mind playing again soon though.

He's not very good at playing golf on Sunday's, which is a real problem if you're a person who wants to win the big tournaments.

I'd like to see him win a major, he's a magnificent ballstriker, but I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up as one of those guys who just never manages it.

Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Shak on Wednesday 6 April 2011, 03:56:58 PM
Masters time. :)

Mickelson coming into it red hot after just obliterating the field over the weekend of last week's event. -16 on Saturday and Sunday combined. :lol:

Rightly goes in as the favourite, Tiger at 12/1 to win the Masters was inconceivable two years ago but there he is. Some of Europeans playing cracking golf this year, Casey, McDowell, Donald, Kaymer and Westwood are all in the top 6 in the world rankings right now.

That said, for some reason I have a feeling this week is when one of the promising young Americans is going to finally break through and win a major. Last year's major gambling was interesting for me. Took a couple of hundred from Mickelson winning the Masters, then made just under a grand backing McDowell to win the US Open. British Open was a disaster and then my tenner each way on Dustin Johnson in the PGA met a sad and twisted finale.

In the spirit of my hunch, this week I'm going

20 on Phil Mickelson to win (7/1)
5 each way on Hunter Mahan (25/1)
4 each way on Rickie Fowler (66/1)
4 each way on Bubba Watson (40/1)
4 each way on Anthony Kim (50/1)
3 each way on Aaron Baddeley (50/1)

I also like Watney's chances a lot but his odds were a bit short for my liking.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: ross magoo on Wednesday 6 April 2011, 06:52:15 PM
50p e/w on :-

Nick Watney @ 16/1
Luke Donald @ 25/1 (probably doesn't hit the ball far enough but i feel bad if i don't back a European)
Retief Goosen @ 66/1

Thought about backing Matt Kuchar as i think he'll win a major this year but i'm gonna save it for the US Open.

J. Rose 37-1   
R. Moore 74-1
B Crane 159-1
S O'Hair 250-1
D.A. Points  549-1
A. Cejka 749-1

Got them top 5 and 10 as well.

If Rose and Cejka get close I'm all over the hedge, pair of chokers.

Unsure about Woods @ 12. His record is amazing at Augusta, might put enough on him to cover my other bets with a lay after the cut in case he's close.

Aye, Kuchar's game seems a much better fit for the US Open alright, generally it's hard to win at Augusta unless you hot the ball a f***ing mile. But the likes of Weir and Johnson have won, so it's not impossible.

Yep, and that's why he has a poor record, got to be able to play a draw well and he's not been able to do it, his game has improved markedly since last year so I'd expect him to do better here, enough to win I doubt though.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Shak on Thursday 7 April 2011, 12:31:39 PM
The golfer Kaymer is right now has never played in the Masters before, the guy evolved into one of the best players in the world over the summer last year. And anyone who can play under pressure like he did at Whistling Straits last year and who can hit the ball as high and as far as he does will have a chance at Augusta.

The point about needing to draw the ball is a fair point though, and certainly works against him. Daft to write him off completely because of it though.

Not sure what there is to like about Tiger these days tbh, he's turned into a massive cock on the course and his attitude towards losing the #1 spot has been awful as well.

Cabrera or McIlroy would suit me nicely.

His putting seems to go completely when under duress. You can be as good a talent as you want, but if you can't putt you're f***ed. Look at Garcia.

Would disagree.

Was a terrible three putt on the first, set him off in the wrong direction. Missed a very makeable birdie putt on the third that could have gotten the shot back, missed another tap-in on the 5th for par. Tee to green he wasn't actually that bad the front 9, but when you make absolutely nothing it's very hard to hang in there.

Obviously he's melted down completely on the 10th but I think the putter was what got the whole thing started. Even after the 10th he played 11 and 12 brilliantly until he got on the green.

It's amazing golf the lad is playing.

Take him out of the tournament and anyone at level par or better is doing very, very well and looking in great shape for the weekend. And here's this little f***er almost finished 2 rounds, no bogeys and at -12.

US Open can swallow you up in a hurry though, unless he's leading by an obscene amount going into Sunday he'll have to face any demons lingering from Augusta.

Be class if he regularly built 10-15 shot leads in majors over the first three days and Sunday was just him coming back to the field, sometimes holding on and sometimes throwing it away. The drama of it would be class. :lol:

I don't think i'll be getting him at 20/1 for a major any time again in the next ten years.  He's got the talent to dominate the game for that length of time, today is his chance to prove he has the temperament.

That wedge he hit fat on the 7th was a massive moment, foot or two shorter and he's looking at a double bogey.

Think he'll cruise it.

Garcia will surely end up in a mental home before he's 50, would have to drive you mad being that s*** at putting when the rest of your game is as a good as anyone.

I don't mind the course, a lot of the holes are nice (like the 12th and 14th), but the 15th in particular is just a rubbish hole, any par 3 that needs to be that kind of distance is always going to be poor, it's simply not a fair test and has no imagination to it.

Anyone play at all btw? Had a pretty good round the other day. Not usually any good like at all but managed to hit some good shots and even was tolerable on the green. Bit of a nightmare on the par 4 15th though. Ended up getting a triple bogey after hitting the windmill.

17 top 10 finishes in his last 22 tournaments.

Form is decently reliable, look at how Westwood and Donald are top of the world rankings without winning any majors.

Hate to say it as Mickelson has been my favourite golfer for about ten years, but nah.

It's eye catching for sure but for a golfer of that quality the gap between those trees was more than big enough to fit through comfortably, yeah he has a little less space to shape the ball in the air but the trees being there didn't make it THAT much more difficult a shot. Still a hell of a shot to hit it off those pine needles over a creek and onto the green of course, but I've seen many better at Augusta.

Faldo in 1996 on the same hole was better in my opinion, for example. He had a 2-iron, which is worlds more difficult to hit than a 6 (which Phil had) and the ball was on a sidehill lie, well above his feet, and he cracked it onto the green just as Mickelson did.

Nick Faldo - 13th Hole - 1996 US Masters - Final Round (Greg Norman) (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v20TsiaWYBQ#)

And Woods from over the back of the 16th was absolute perfection, that's the greatest tbh.

He always does , which is why I always put him on EW in majors.


My other bets are Kaymer and Ogilvy EW (changed my mind from what i posted in the Betting thread).

Literally anyone on their game can win the Masters which is why it is so class.

He didn't in last year's Masters or the PGA, and at Sandwich he didn't even make the cut.

I don't know how he's done so far today, but my outside EW bet would be Jason Duffner.

Dead heats in golf
One of the most confusing aspects about Golf Betting is the Dead Heat Ruling on the “Outright” result.
As we have previously said, you generally cannot have a dead heat for the actual winner of a tournament, as extra holes are played to decide the overall winner. This is not the case for the “placed” golfers. Most weeks will produce a Dead Heat of some description in a golf event. Let’s look at a couple of scenarios:
Dead heat involving two players

Example: You have staked €2 each way on Padraig Harrington to win the US Open at 16/1. Paddy Power are paying five places at each way terms of 1/4 of the odds. The leaderboard looks like this at the end of the tournament:
Position      Golfer   Score
1      Tiger Woods   -8
2      Phil Mickelson   -6
3      Lee Westwood   -5
4      Jim Furyk   -4
5   DH   Sergio Garcia   -2
5   DH   Padraig Harrington   -2
The top four places are undisputed; however there are two players level on fifth place. So what now?
Dead heat rules state that your stake should be divided by the number of competitors involved in the dead heat and then settled at the normal odds. This means that the example bet above would be settled as follows:
An each way bet is essentially two bets, a bet on the selection to win and a bet on the selection to place. The €1 win part of your bet is a loser, as Harrington didn’t win. The each way part of your bet is €2. In a dead heat situation, your stake is divided by the number of competitors involved in the dead heat (in this case there’s two; Garcia and Harrington). €1 divided by 2 is 50c.  So we’re working out 50c at 16/1 with each way terms of 1/4 of the odds. The calculation will look like this:
Place terms 16/1 Divided by 4 = 4/1
Dead heat 2 players divided by 1 place = 0.50
€1.00 becomes 50c.
Your reduced stake is 0.50 x 2 = €1.00
Total returns
Reduced Stake x place terms + reduced stake = Total return. = 2.50
Dead heat involving more than two players
Following on from the above example, a different situation occurs if the leaderboard had finished like this:
Position      Golfer   Score
1      Tiger Woods   -8
2   DH   Phil Mickelson   -6
2   DH   Lee Westwood   -6
2   DH   Jim Furyk   -6
2   DH   Sergio Garcia   -6
2   DH   Padraig Harrington   -6
2   DH   Kenny Perry   -6

In this situation, six players are tied for second - however, Paddy Power are paying five places and there are seven players filling these places. Settling this market is a little more complex.
All bets on Woods are winners and are not affected by any dead heat. This leaves four further places for us to pay out on six competitors. This means that the dead heat terms are 4 divided by 6.
Example: As an example, we’ll use €2 each way on Harrington to win at 16/1. The calculation is similar to before (it’s easier to explain if we work out the dead heat terms first, in this instance)

Place terms: 16/1 Divided by 4 = 4/1
Dead heat: 6 players divided by 4 place = 0.67
€1.00 stake becomes €0.67c
Your reduced stake is 0.67 x 2 = €1.34
Total returns
Reduced Stake x place terms + reduced stake = Total return. = €6.68

Westwood hasn't got the knack of playing 4 decent rounds consecutively at Augusta, he could easily have won this 2 years ago but for a combo of him playing not quite as well as previous, and Mickelson playing superbly.
I'm on Garcia as I have been for what seems like the last million Majors. :lol:, Bradley and Watson of the Bubba variety.

The number of shots is little problem for Tiger, it's the number of players infront of him that's the issue, he can't win this. Top 10 still a remote possibility.

Phil has the experience, the nous and the ability to win this easily. However golf is a strange game, and I'm quietly confident about Watson's chances. I'm sure Hanson will blow up, so European value could come from Westy who is well capable of shooting 66 at Augusta.

f***ing hate Mickelson

Met him at the Open back in 2003 at royal st george's, and he's a lovely bloke, one of the few that tries to make an effort with everybody he meets, unlike some.  Also grabbed a few words with Tom Watson, he's such a humble guy and an absolute ledge.

He may also have been able to go back to the tee I think and play his 3rd from there (?)

Only Tiger Woods in 2005 from Memory has won it on the 18th.

Cabrera won it on the 10th last playoff.

Of course we all remember Larry Mize winning on 11 in 1986 from Greg Norman.

Bubba's was clearly a lot better than the Albatross shot, which was good, but it was a fairly standard, middle of the fairway shot, hitting the green where he wanted to, with a huge slice of luck. Bubba's was magic under the most intense pressure.

Phil has the experience, the nous and the ability to win this easily. However golf is a strange game, and I'm quietly confident about Watson's chances. I'm sure Hanson will blow up, so European value could come from Westy who is well capable of shooting 66 at Augusta.

I wasn't far away, was I?

Just glad I didn't use the pin in paper method and bet someone like Jason Dufner. :p

Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Ronaldo on Thursday 26 April 2012, 06:17:38 PM
Ebay. Callaway do some excellent game improvement - mid handicapper sticks (I play with the X-18 irons) but they will most likely exceed £150.

Stick to normal shafts (not stiff) until you've been playing for a while and concentrate on getting a decent 3-wood and short irons, that's how you learn the game.

Cheers Ron, do you know much about this site? : http://www.golfbidder.co.uk/ (http://www.golfbidder.co.uk/)

Looking just to get some Irons at the moment. The temptation is their to get a wood but the pro who has been teaching me says just to keep to irons until you've got your swing right.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Ronaldo on Friday 27 April 2012, 03:59:25 AM
Yeah, never used it but apparently you can get some real good deals there.

I disagree with the pro on that, because swinging a wood is very different to swinging an iron, but I suppose getting to know the 5,7,9 and wedge gives you a pretty decent foundation. Let me know if you find some clubs and have some questions.

Agree with this, definitely get a wood as well. My old man started playing with just irons, took him years to get used to drivers and woods once he started using them. Might not be the best idea to start whacking drivers around on the course, but definitely keep it with you on the driving range until you get comfortable with it.

Might not be the best idea to start whacking drivers around on the course, but definitely keep it with you on the driving range until you get comfortable with it.

I'd echo this. I've always had a strong iron game and although longer than most players, I needed something to reduce my handicap. I've been messing about with an old driver for a couple of years and eventually invested in a fairly decent one just after Christmas in an attempt to 'forgive' my occasionally bad swing. After a couple of frustrating rounds and trips to the range, I left it at home when I played the other day. Using an old driving iron, all but one tee shot ended up on the fairway/light rough and it allowed me to attack the greens, albeit with my longer irons. Had I been using my driver, I would have been playing a shot out the deep rough/trees/even worse and been playing my approach shot with pressure to hit the green.

Drivers are advertised to be the most forgiving clubs but the low spin rates mean anything faulty with your swing will be empahised. As a result from this costly experiment, my driver is being returned in favour for a 3 wood (again its not perfectly straight but its nowhere near as bad as my driver) and a hybrid. My advice would be to invest in some slightly better irons and build from there rather than buying an average set just so you can buy a driver.

It may be worth visiting a few golf courses/driving ranges and shops like American Golf as you can sometimes pick up great bargains on second hand clubs there. Plus, at most places, it means you can try a few designs before deciding on a set. Unless you know exactly what you want, finding clubs can be a minefield so its worth spending a bit of time researching options.

Looking at these at the moment, any ideas? Since I'm a beginner i think i need a regular shaft. Thankfully I'm normal size so standard cubs are fine and widely available.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Ronaldo on Friday 27 April 2012, 04:34:41 PM
Good for you, I need the longer clubs which can be a little restricting when you do what I do and experiment with a load of clubs via Ebay.

I've never been a massive fan of Ping to tell you the truth but forgiving irons like those with the non-stiff shafts might be right on the money.

Intend to go see Batman on Friday afternoon, aside from that I don't have anything else to do but watch the golf until Sunday. :snod:

Gonna go into town and put down a few bets this afternoon.

Harrington, McDowell, Garcia, Fowler and Molinari I think.

Pebble Beach is as close to a links course as you'll find in America but it's completely different to the links we have over here. Depends on your definition I suppose but the courses over here are very different to anything else in the world.

Keegan Bradley and Webb Simpson both younger and have won majors recently.

The top of the putter is lodged into the stomach/chest, which keeps the club steadier through the stroke.

Basically it makes things much easier for people who suffer from nerves over short putts in particular as a lot of the feel is removed from the shot.

USPGA coverage just starting on Sky Sports.

On at Kiawah Island, one of the best courses in America. Another one of Pete Dye's twisted designs, should be a really entertaining weekend.

McIlroy has made a really good start, one shot off the lead at -5 playing his last hole.

Got bets on Dustin Johnson, Bubba Watson, Oousthuizen, McDowell and Justin Rose.

Rory leading by 3, course is set up perfectly for him could win it comfortably but Tiger showed some signs of coming back after a disastrous front 9.  Would had been a shot further in lead if wasn't for his ball getting stuck in a dead trees branch. :lol:

Tiger is playing well, but my god as soon as the driver comes out then all hell can break lose.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Shak on Sunday 12 August 2012, 04:47:36 PM
So unlike Tiger yesterday, used to be that once he got into the lead he was impossible to chase down. But he was rubbish yesterday, weather delay kept him in the tournament. Was the same on Saturday at the US Open, so unlike him.

All down to McIlroy, obviously. If he plays well this is over, he's erratic in his genius though, if things start getting away from him he can lose a lot of shots, very fast.

Would like to see him win it obviously, hope he stumbles a bit early though to make it an entertaining last round.

So unlike Tiger yesterday, used to be that once he got into the lead he was impossible to chase down. But he was rubbish yesterday, weather delay kept him in the tournament. Was the same on Saturday at the US Open, so unlike him.

All down to McIlroy, obviously. If he plays well this is over, he's erratic in his genius though, if things start getting away from him he can lose a lot of shots, very fast.

Would like to see him win it obviously, hope he stumbles a bit early though to make it an entertaining last round.

He still doesn't have that go to shot from the tee.

Short play is still excellent mind, though he made some uncharacteristic putt's yesterday.

I don't think it's any one part of his game in particular, he just hits more poor shots in all facets of the game than he did back at his peak.

Think he's getting there and his head is finall right again though, be surprised if he doesn't win a major next year.

Poulter on fire here. Five birdies in a row to start, McIlroy looking a little shaky too.

Tiger a bit of a mixed bag. Decided to lay up on a very drivable par 4 and almost made bogey as a result. What a... man of questionable courage.

Not sure why you're quoting me from September, like. :lol:

Anyway, If he could put 10 of his drives per round on the fairway he'd be world no.1 with ease.

Such a shame that ball lipped out, like. It happened to him 3 times last week at the Farmers, too, but from much shorter distances. Callaway basically let him design his own clubs now, so hopefully he's finally got it right with the driver because he seems to have had a different one in the bag every other major since abandoning the FT-5 way back when.

Looking forward to seeing his season, anyway. Think he'll get a major.

As per usual I've got a fair wedge on Lefty and Dufner E/W. Rose is an excellent shout too, but I'm not sure if he has the short game to take advantage of Augsta like some of the field. Certainly got the length to tame the back 9, though.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread

Gone for

Mickelson to win
Oosthuizen e/w
Fowler e/w
McDowell e/w
Angel Cabrera e/w

Apparently it's expected to be quite windy all week, which is why I've included McDowell. Augusta generally doesn't set up well for him but if it's going to be playing hard, fast and difficult that puts him in the mix IMO.

Cabrera was just my stab in the dark long shot, 110/1 is tremendous value for a 2 time major winner. When he gets in the mix he's very good. The aforementioned conditions don't bode well for him mind.

Particularly fancy Fowler this week for some reason.

Reckon Tiger's gonna put the exclamation point on his return to power this week though.

Don't think being a big hitter is essential to win at Augusta. It helps, obviously, but Zach Johnson and Mike Weir are short hitters who've won there. Not sure but I don't think Immelman hits it far either. A few other modest hitters have gone very close too.

Much will be decided on the greens, as ever.

Agree, someone like Donald who is a master craftsman in his work around the green would be a good bet, if he was in any kind of form that is.

Snedeker, like Dufner has been quiet of late, and Westwood's short game doesn't hold sway at Augusta. If Sergio can have a decent week with the putter, he won't be far away. Good ew bet.

Was shocked Day finished like he did, he'd looked so solid too.

Aussies' Augusta-related psychological barrier rolls down the shutters again, and blocks entry to unchartered territory (lifetime membership in that winners' lockerroom). Strikes them down like bowling pins, during the later rounds, when sitting on the cusp of breaking the duck.

Unless there's been a magic vaccination issued (between now, and back when Scott blew a lead in the final holes) , i wont be shocked if Scott once again fails to make the grade at the business end. Aussie golfers & The Masters/Augusta - it could be the highest-profile, longest-running & most endearing hoodoo in sport (most definitely golf).

Schwartzel finished with a wet sail, i vaguely remember Scott dropping a couple of shots down the stretch (back 9). It wasn't a final round collapse akin to Greg Norman, but what separates the Faldos from the A..Scotts, is the chokers propensity to lose their nerve when a player makes a charge at them - a roar of a nearby gallery, and a word of leaderboard a charge can throw off the mentally weak. Not being able to withstand an opponents' final charge, and it's not as if a golfer can physically put the clampers down one-on-one like other sports - like tennis. The psychology of choking is probably most relevant in golf.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread

Scott's got a lot to prove for sure, but it's just not right to say he choked a couple of years back at Augusta.


He failed to cash-in the par 5's though mate, and those should be bankable holes (at least 1 or 2 birdies/shots) for such a good ball hitter (from tee-to-green). I don't think he birdied one par 5  that Sunday iirc. In the context of what should be a bread & butter opportunities,  those missed chances were effectively dropped shots. Can't argue with a sub-70 rnd, on a Masters Sunday. Scott has admitted that he picked up a couple of unexpected shots, but his par 5 play (normally a strength, for a top well-rounded stroke player like him) cost him on Sun. He admits that he blew the approach at the 15th. Fair play to him for wheeling out a positive spin on it, by looking at it philosophically (ie. shwartzel pipped him, better man won). He had to take something positive out of that experierence. Solid final round, yep - i'd wager though, that deep down he wishes he could have those bankables back, and that was the difference. So i'll have to agree to disagree

TBH i wouldn't mind seeing Scott win a major. I'm a golf knoob, but he seems a decent fella, and a repeat bridesmaid is usually a popular sentimental pick, see Ivanisevic. Just not The Masters though. Sporting curses (in this case, Aussies at Augusta, the venue jynx over a golfing collective, in this instance a nation's sporting psyche)have an air of mystique to them. Here's a toast to the continuation of this tradition.

Trust Scott to win the first major in about 3 years that i didnt back him :lol:

Bitter-sweet result. 'Bitter' is probably too strong a word,  because i do really like Adam Scott the person. I caught the news grabs earlier, and his intention to share a beer (and the moment) with Norman had more than a touch of class to it. The 'thumbs-up' acknowledgment Scott & Cabrera gave one another (when it was play-off time) was one those subtle, understatedly cool displays of mutual respect in a pressure loaded meatgrinder scenario. Very cool, a couple of classy dudes.

But i do enjoy the mystique of a grand old sporting hoodoo, and this one has been a beauty. So there's just a slight tinge of sadness attached, because the stunning siren (that is Augusta) at last has been cracked and the honeypot breached. For the Aussie armada, Augusta has been an entity itself - lures them in with whispered promises, she watches them unwrap the condom with their pants already wrapped the ankles, only to then break them with the dreaded line 'meh, i've got a headache, i'm sorry darlin' in that fun & bouncy Georgia twang. [Insert Aussie Golfer] trudges off, with shoulders weighed-down & impaled by the shards of yet another shattered dream, forlornly has to settle for a w*** instead  (before jetting-off to the next tour event).

Fair play to Scott. He showed a shitload of mental resolve, one-on-one against a guy who has been there & done it (won it) already.

US Open then.

Dolan leads overnight, still with his first round to finish too. Scott going strong again too. Mickelson the leader in the clubhouse, reckon I might cry if he finally wins the US this week.

I think I'll also cry if Mickelson wins it. Five 2nd place finishes in this tournament, man. Speaks volumes about him as a man and a player that in theory his game is completely unsuited to the typical US Open setup.

Mickelson can't buy a putt, should really have had a birdie or two by now.

Poulter, Rose and Dolan all likely to be well in the mix for the weekend, could an English guy finally win a major this week. Rose seems the most likely, to me, though I'd not bet against Poulter in a pressure situation.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread

Mickelson leads by one going into Sunday then, if he plays like he did on the back nine today it's his. Stunning ballstriking.

Odds are against him winning the US though, he'll be 44 by the time next year's gets here. Very small list of men who have won a major at that age or over, he may not get another chance. Would be immense if he won it in his 50's or something after having drifted out of the game's elite.

Currently 1/4 odds for 8 places at Betfred if you bet before 5pm. Think it is 7 at paddys and hills. Nt sure on the others.

Sergio, Schwartzel, Snedeker, Kaymer and Colsaerts all look good prices to me. Although you could make a claim for value in anyone bar the top 4 (woods, lefty, rose and Scott) given the size of the field and propensity for surprises.

Yeah he was 66's when i checked but drifted to 80's last night when i placed bets, it was a good recovery from bjorn considering he smashed an espn camera and was on 3 over pretty quickly, was on 1 under on back 9 but bogeyed a few of the late holes and finished 2 over. Happy though, very erratic round but hopefully will cut out errors tomorrow. Onwards and upwards.

We've gone from green to green, at the 13th grandstand now so only seen each player a max of 2 times except the Mickelson group who we followed for 3. Couples' albatross attempt was right in front of us. Incredible shot though I wasn't sure it was only his 2nd at the time. Mickelson walked right by me off the 14th tee, he's absolutely massive. Faldo too. The greens seem to be absolutely brutal and we've seen very few putts from outside 6 feet go in.

Can't say I think the clubs are that big a deal in regards to McIlroy. Tiger's done alright using Nike stuff his whole career.

People were saying the same s*** about McIlroy this time last year, remember? Then he went to Valhalla and destroyed the field. He's just a very mercurial talent who's still developing as a golfer, and that means he'll have some shocking runs of form.

Conditions this week were never gonna suit him anyway, despite growing up on a links he's desperately unsuited to this type of golf oddly enough.

Possibly, you definitely overrate the guy though.

Would be pleased to see Westwood win, never had a great deal of faith in the guy in any sort of pressure situation but perhaps this will be his week. Made some great putts late in the round today.

Gonna have to be on his game tomorrow though. Tiger, Scott and Mahan is a hell of a chasing pack. Woods and Scott playing together could be interesting with the Steve Williams factor.

They had the PGA at Oak Hill ten years ago or so. Shaun Mucheel won, absolutely f***ing stuck it on the last to win it.

How many times were there holed bunker shots or chip-ins that week? Seems to have been loads. Was a great comeback too and the last time we saw Seve in a Ryder Cup. And a Howard Clark ace too!

They do play the PGA at some extremely fun courses though.

Valhalla and Whistling Straits in 2014 and 2015, both of which I love. The Athletic Club I'm not massively keen on but it's another that produces drama. Kiawah last year was another gem.

The best realistic suggestion I've heard is to move the PGA to October and make it like the final big event of the year. Right now it's sandwiched in between the Open and the Fed Ex too much and seems like just anther tournament.

Run the Fed Ex through mid-August to early September, Ryder Cup in late September then the PGA in October to finish the year with a bang.

Scott threatening to run away with this.

He's turned into some player the last few years. Finished top ten in six of the last eleven majors, with two runner up spots and of course that Augusta win.

Definitely looks like he'll win at least another couple of majors... assuming they don't outlaw his broomstick like.

Williams on the bag means I'll never cheer for the guy, aye.

"Cheat" is a bit OTT, it's not illegal (sadly).

Anyway, let's talk about the real issue. Phil a bit more solid today, if he can get to a couple under by the end of play he'll be in position to make a charge over the weekend. Apparently he was absolutely shell shocked by the round yesterday, went out feeling in control then just had his swing desert him once he stopped onto the first tee.

Been there, it's annoying. :lol:

Can't emphasise how much Dufner deserves this. Played the course magnificently and nerves of steel. No, Furyk and Stenson haven't put enough pressure on but Dufner's been unwavering. In total control and it'd be a ridiculous shame if he somehow messes this up, which looks very, very unlikely.

2 ahead, 2 to play.

Absolute failure this major from myself from a betting angle. Nobody even got in with a squeak of a place! Duffman was superb last night to keep his cool, was never fazed at any point but nobody around him caused him much trouble. If Stenson wasn't as negative on the greens he could have mounted a bigger challenge, he's not far off a big win. Also nice to see Rory showing signs of his old self and getting some form back. Unlike Westwood's twitter meltdown this morning, he has serious issues. Think it's hard to see him winning a major until he sorts his mind and putting out.

I was in two minds earlier, but now he's given a full blown apology to sponsers and 'true followers' it was in fact an alcohol fuelled meltdown  :lol:

Blatantly started by people just questioning his putting which led to him saying he had trolls and haters.

Bubba's win would return ~325€, but just a small profit. Bubba vs Spieth, Kuchar vs Blixt and Fowler vs Jimenez last round scores would return ~560€, not likely but not too far off.  :drool:

Reckon someone is going to rip up the back nine in the next couple of hours. Lots of people making birdies but nobody has really gone mental.

Someone will shoot a 64 or 65 I reckon.

Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread

Yeah. I don't like that idea either. Augusta and Sawgrass plus alternating venues in both opens should be perfect.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Shak on Monday 21 July 2014, 12:32:07 PM
Like Sawgrass but no way would I give it a yearly major.

Problem with the PGA is it lacks an identity. The Masters has Augusta, The US Open is a brutal setup and the Open is links golf. They're all very distinctive, while the PGA is just another tournament really, especially now with the Fedex Cup getting so big.

My suggestion would be to push it back a couple of months and have it as the final event of the season, maybe in early October or thereabouts. Plenty of time after the Fedex and Ryder Cup have finished, would give it a big feel to it with it then being the final event of the year.

Hold it at visually stunning courses too. Valhalla this year is a good one, Whistling Straits next year too is a gem. Throw in Kiawah where McIlroy won, maybe Sawgrass into the rotation too. The Athletic Club wasn't a particular favorite of mine but it's at least a bit different.

Find seven or 8 stunning courses and rotate it like they do the Open, then push it back to be the season closer and you'd have a worthy major.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Ronaldo on Monday 21 July 2014, 03:04:00 PM
I think a November PGA at Sawgrass as the final big event would be an ideal way to finish the season. The PGA is too close to The Open to hold major significance, as you said.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Shak on Tuesday 22 July 2014, 12:42:01 PM

Playing Slaley Hall tomorrow morning.  :cheesy:

Great setup. How'd you get on, and which 18?

Went round in 104 scoring 30 points. Not bad but I reckon I could take another 6 or 7 shots off that if I played it tomorrow. Loads of daft shots wasted due to just not knowing the hole and playing it blind. Reasonably pleased and enjoyed it.

That bunker shot was superb, came out so f***ing soft.

Best I've ever seen around the greens, by a mile as well.

Get annoyed hearing the commentators go on about his wedge play being amazing though. Talking about those 80-120 yard shots, they've often let him down IMO. He hits some great ones, obviously, but he hits more stinkers than a lot of guys too.

No it isn't nonsense. We've seen players play with globs of mud on them countless times. Rory played a pitch less than an hour ago, from the fairway with a glob of mud on top of it. Fowler hit an errant tee shot and so shouldn't have been allowed to move it from mud or so called casual water imo.

Great watch but the coverage was appalling for the non-big names. Ilonen was in the third last pair and one shot behind the leaders at one time. Remember seeing one drive, two chips (second was when they showed a close up of Stenson and the ball landed next to the flag behind him) and few putts. Couldn't even be arsed to show his last birdie putt that could've moved him to T5 and opted to show McIlroy's second shot on par 5 for the ninth time. Had to spend more time on Twitter and the official leaderboard to know how he was doing ffs.

You had 4 aggressive big names a shot away from gaining or losing the lead for the last 2 hours, man. It's hardly surprising an unknown who finished T7 got far less coverage.

I wasn't expecting them to show his every shot especially after the four big names started to get going. Obviously I enjoyed it very much too. Still, he was within one or two shots all round until the bogey on 12th and got no f***ing time at all.

Remember dreaming about a Finn doing this well in a major as a kid, now it happened and it was a f***ing grade A letdown.

I actually bet Ilonen every British Open because most of his Tour victories have either come in Britain or Ireland or on links courses or a combo of both.

Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Shak on Friday 26 September 2014, 11:56:43 AM
Poulter and Gallagher seemed like an attempt to emotion some victories rather than any sort of logical pairing.

Garcia and McIlroy should be unplayable theoretically, good mates too as far as I know.

The Ryder Cup is great like, I honestly don't care who wins as long as it's close. Would rather the Yanks won a thriller than Europe win it handily.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread

In fourballs you want two different types of player ideally. Sergio's like a poor man's Rory.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: KDT on Friday 26 September 2014, 12:16:09 PM
So it looks at worst it's going to be 2-2 going into the foursomes which I think both teams would have taken at the start of today. The foursome pairings will be interesting, you'd think they'll send Rose & Stenson out again and split Garcia and McIlroy up, Kaymer should also be involved.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread

I'm not a big believer that it's overly important how your styles mesh in fourball. Foursomes you want two guys who compliment each other, but fourball I'd rather have someone who I get on with and who can make some birdies.

If Fowler and Walker nick a half it'd be huge for America, they've looked dead for a lot of this.

They're a decent foursome partnership in theory. Rory's aggressiveness and Sergio's recovery should mesh fairly well. Similar type of player is key in foursome.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread

Maybe it's just me but I would've left Kaymer out of the foursomes. I think McGinlay should've given Gallacher another go and to put him with Rose would've been good for him too. He's going to be slightly cold going to the singles,   imo.

Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: Shak on Sunday 28 September 2014, 11:17:04 AM
Think this one is over, the Americans needed to keep within 2 points going into the singles to have a shot and they couldn't do it.

I've seen 10-6 overturned twice but both times the team trailing had arguably the stronger lineup. That's not the case today and I think it's possible that the scoreline could get ugly.

Hard to fault McGinley too much now, some of his pairing raised an eyebrow from me for sure but when you consider that we went 7-1 in the foursomes (where suitable pairings are vital) he's done a solid job.

Not that I think the captain is of tremendous importance on a strong team like we have this year. Pretty sure I could have captained us to victory. :lol:

Watson on the other hand I thought made some poor moves. Mickelson and Bradley sitting all day yesterday was ridiculous and the decision not to send Spieth and Reed back out Friday afternoon was a big blunder too IMO.
Title: Re: The 'GOLF' thread
Post by: captainhaircut on Sunday 28 September 2014, 11:23:51 AM
Matches 5, 6 and 7 don't look great for us. Vital the first 4 fire. Anything less than 2-2 from there and we could be in a bit of trouble after 7 matches.

I think we'll be ok though. Unlike Medinah, they aren't carrying any momentum in to the last day. We had Poulters 5 birdies in a row to fire us up. They must have been so deflated when Rose nailed that putt on 18.

Think we'll still come through this, delighted to see the Yanks putting up a fight though.

First game is huge.

Glad to see one of the Yanks really getting into it tbh, always felt they lacked any sort of passion or emotional leader on the team.

Between Donaldson and Kaymer it's hard to see us not at least retaining.

I know the pressure was on but that's got to be pretty much automatic from there like.
