My sporting week

My tactic of betting against the favourite in football – on the basis that empty stands equalise the odds – did not pay as I lost out on the victories of Leeds, Wolves and Lazio over Fiorentina. At the time of writing my man Victor Novlund looks like to have every chance of an each-way [...]

My sporting week

It’s so good to have live sports back on our screens even if the atmosphere is so weird. I enjoyed Ascot. It’s a difficult event to call so I stuck to my tried and tested formula of laying the favourites. This means at worst you will break even as Stradivarius in the Gold Cup  aside, most [...]

The Colonial

Great to have live golf back on our screen with the Charles Shwab tourney at Colinial Country Club. The USPGA tourney was won after a play-off by Danny Berger over one of the young tyros who will surely make a big name Colin Morikawa who turned pro this year. He and  Cameron Champ will be two [...]

Sport returning to TV

Last night I watched the US PGA event at Colonial and Sevilla v Real Betis both behind closed doors. Golf does not need spectators though Harold Varner III, who had earlier kneeled in the Blacks Matter protest (he is one of the few black players on the tour), would have expected come crowd reaction [...]

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 [...]

Let’s get serious about where all this is going!

With some trepidation because I am steeping into dark waters today – if Tom H. and his crew on the Rust’s sports team will permit me –  but I’ve suddenly come to realisation that I’m sure will also have occurred to some of our astute readers about the position to which elite sport [...]

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 [...]
