About John Pargiter

John Pargiter’s biggest claim to fame is his first-ever work experience job, as ‘legs’ (or runner) for Henry Longhurst. For many years he worked in insurance at Lloyds. After retiring he has returned to his favourite sport of golf and is a keen recreational sailor and grandparent. More Posts

Doug Sanders RIP

I am not one for watching replays of golf tourneys – you know the result and nothing to bet on. Golf does not need spectators in the way football does, indeed some players might welcome the absence of raucous spectators such as you find towards the end of the final day on the US PGA. So I [...]

My sporting weekend

When you hit a winning streak – as I did after Plumpton Races and on Adam Scott – you think it will last forever … and the same applies to a losing one. So it was a great relief that Tyrell Hatton and Marc Leishman as runners up in the Bay Hill Arnold Palmer invitational did the [...]

My sporting weekend

As ever, after a winning run with 4 wins at Plumpton and Adam Scott, it was inevitable my luck would turn. I was on Tommy Fleetwood for the Honda on the Jack Nicklaus-designed Palm Beach course with its treacherous Bear Trap on holes  16/17/18. Tommy, the highest rated player in the world not to [...]

My good run continues with a 28-1 1 punt on Adam Scott at the Genesis Invitational at the Riviers Club, Hollywood, the golf club of the stars. When Jeremy Chapman recommended him alongside Marc Leishman, Bubba Watson and Justin Thomas, it was Scott I fancied least as he has not won anything for 4 [...]

Pargie’s Sporting weekend

Like most flutterers you only hear from me when I’m winning so I’m back after a successful weekend  of punting. Golf is my bag and I had Kevin Streelman (2nd) and Phil Mickelson (3rd) in the ATT at Pebble Beach. The winner was Canadian Nick Taylor. Don’t worry if you have not heard of [...]

A  Happy New Year and a prosperous one betting to all our readers! We have two tourneys to add to the majors compressed between April and July – the Olympics in Tokyo and the Ryder Cup  at Whistling Straits. The younger men I fancy to win their first major are Xander Schauffele, Abraham [...]

On the tee with Pargie

For the fourth time out of five thanks to Jeremy Chapman I nabbed a winner in John Rahm. Ram trousered $5 million as he won the Race to Dubai as well as the DP event on the Jumeireh course. Comparisons were inevitably made to Seve Ballesteros and Rahm knew his Spanish golfers, even citing Seve’s [...]

On the tee with Pargie

One of my favourite tourneys on the “European” circuit is the Nedbank on the Gary Player-designed course in Sun City, South Africa. I have been to Sun City and played that course. It’s a wonderful resort designed by Sol Kerzner, particularly for the golfer. One attraction of the course is [...]

On the tee with John Pargiter

Our Japanese Rusters have been dominating the posts but quietly Pargie has been restoring his betting confidence and war chest thanks mainly to that ace analyst Jeremy Chapman. Two weeks ago he picked out Rory McIlroy and Xander Schauffele for the HSBC Shanghai Masters. Both finished winner and [...]

Pargie’s sporting weekend

I haves been off the air these past weeks after my big win on Danny Willett at Wentworth. Good to see the Sheffield slugger back to winning ways and nice few quid in my coffers. I duly noted Jeremy Chapman’s tips for the Spanish Open and the US PGA Shriners Children Hospital in Las Vegas without [...]
