My sporting weekend

Unusually for me I did not have a tickle all weekend though I had some golf bets in the week. Sometimes I just want to watch sport free of angst. I started with the Bledisloe Cup as I’m watching a good deal of rugby in preparation for the forthcoming World Cup. I had little doubt that there would [...]

Pargie’s sporting weekend

It seeems strange to be just in August with all 4 Majors completed and into Fedex season. You might say business end as $15m awaits the FedEx rankings winner. After yesterday’s tourney at the Liberty National at New Jersey the field narrows to 70 for the BMW at Medinah and the final one is [...]

Sunday’s sport

Team orders v individual assertion; that is the story of F1 and this year’s Tour de France. Egan Behgal of the Ineos team could have won on Saturday but he is the domestique to team leader Geraint Thomas. Chris Froomee was the same to Bradley Wiggins and Thomas to Froome. Now its Beghal’s [...]

Tour de France /stage 13

One of the joys of sport is its unpredictability. That is why I’m cynical of those who try to reduce performance and strategy to statistical analysis. We wake up each morning and sometimes feel energised and optimistic, other times not. Our cat Tiddles can also sleep all day or be skittish and [...]

The Open /First Day an alternative view

The majority of the previews on the Open focused on Rory McIlroy and Tiger Woods who finished eight and seven over respectively. By going on a family holiday in Thailand and playing few events since winning the Masters, Tiger was seeming not to take his chances seriously. Rory has won the Canadian [...]

The Open (Day One – from a distance)

… And so to the first day of the 148th holding of The Open yesterday and a brief note upon my personal experience of it. For reasons which need not concern us here, as background, Rusters need to know that for large parts of the day I was en route by car to and from the South Coast and thus – [...]

Sporting weekend ( so far)

After my win on Joe Rahm at the Irish Open I came under pressure from the missus to replace the rust heap literally on its last broken legs that is our barbecue. I relented on the basis that it involved a speedy trip to the local supermarket for a like for like replacement. Unfortunately they were [...]

My sporting weekend

It could have been a welcome double if Bryson de Chambeaud had won the USPGA 3M, as I had already cashed in on Joe Rahm who had triumphed at the Irish Open. I  fact “the mad scientist” blew it, finishing second. Still it was a welcome boost to my confidence and bank account. With the [...]

My sporting weekend

My only result this weekend was backing the Chilean prodigy Joaquin Niemann each way in the USPGA Rocket mortgage where the unknown Nate lashley ran away with his one. The South African Christian Bezuidenhout won the Andalusian Masters which most expected the Sponsor Sergio Garcia to do. Otherwise [...]

A great day of sport

With my missus off to Alton Towers with grandkids Holly and Bracken I had the run of the gaff. Armed with a chilled rose, a Rosalie Mistral, recommended and supplied by Algy for services rendered and warm enough to fire the barbecue on the back yard I settled down to burgers, sausages and coleslaw [...]
