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 GOLFING WEEKEND

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 [...]

The tribulations of switching careers

Though his success in both his careers – footballer and TV host/presenter – is undeniable, I have never personally warmed to Gary Linker. Well, save for the time he made those gestures – caught vividly on the TV cameras – to England manager Bobby Robson on the bench during the 4th July [...]

The golfing year 2020

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 [...]
