My sporting weekend

The return of Tiger Woods has attracted much coverage – less so twice Green Jacket Bubba Watson who won Genesis at the Riviera aged 39.  At his best he is one of the most watchable golfers on the planet, a supreme shot-maker in the style  of Seve. In a world of formulaic highly-coached, [...]

Pebble Beach

I don’t like the word iconic but I can see why it is used to describe Pebble Beach. With its breathtaking views over the Monterrey Peninsula and the Pacific Ocean it is one of the most beautiful courses in the world. The 7th hole – no more than a wedge to the green from an elevated [...]

Arthur Davidson/betting tribute

I would like to add my own happorth – or should it be tenner to the passing of dear Arthur. What you won’t read in the obits is that he loved a flutter on the golf. His greatest punt was backing Webb Simpson at 66-1. In our regular calls he would say he backed the winner but it was usually [...]

Hail Fleetwood

I am sometimes asked, as a serial tv watcher of sport, what is my favourite? Answer: the final day of the European tour. On the USPGA I often feel that competitors are more concerned about making the cut than winning. You therefore have golfers of quality like Matt Kuchar and Charles Lowell III who [...]

My sporting weekend

When my fancy and joint tourney leader Branden Grace co-led with Chris Paisley after 3 rounds began the final round of the BMW at Erkulaheni South Africa with birdie and eagle, I had every confidence he would blow away journeyman Paisley. On the 6th he bogeyed after failing to clear a bunker giving [...]

Golf winners new

Once again Jeremy Chapman came up trumps picking the winner of the Mauritius Open, Dylan Frittelli and the Hero in the Bahamas (Ricky Fowler). Dylan Frittelli and the winner of the Australian PGA Cameron Smith epitomise the talented generation of fine young golfers of whom you will be hearing more [...]

The Sporting Weekend

For the third week running Jeremy Chapman pulled up a winner in Jon Rahm in the DP event at Dubai. Justin Rose at -19 seemed to be coasting along but lost his mojo in the final back nine. He had a relatively simple chip to the green which he bunkered, bogeyed the hole, hit the water and fell back [...]

That Winning Feeling

This is not my favourite time of the year when the missus does our household budget and like some nervous government Minister I anxiously await to hear what my department will be allocated. I am definitely treated as a provider not a cost centre. It was therefore unfortunate both for him and me [...]

A brief encounter

Never mind Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey or the MPs sex scandals – Ingolby has still got it! Yesterday afternoon I waddled up the hill to my local gymnasium, situated at the back of a pair of rather upmarket hotels, intent upon nothing more than blowing a few cobwebs away and getting the blood [...]

My Sporting Weekend

There is probably only one golfer on the planet who can be 6 shots ahead off the field going into the last round of the WGC Champions event in Shanghai and still lose and his name is Dustin Johnson. When I awoke at 7, you could not get a bet on Justin Ross as he was so far behind DJ who was 1-4 [...]
