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 [...]

The Sporting Weekend

For once I had an enjoyable and successful sporting weekend. Both the USPGA and European tours provided me with winners – Justin Thomas and Sergio Garcia – but not after some drama. Justin Thomas was the favourite for the tourney played in South Korea as part of the Asian swing. I enjoy [...]

My Sporting Weekend

Final scores may be dramatic but they are not much help to the sporting flutterer, like me. Everton at evens seems a juicy lay to me. Things are not good in the state of Goodison, they have had the Rooney debacle and rumours are emerging that the team don’t care for the disciplinarian Ronnie [...]

The US pipeline

The conveyor belt of American golfing talent is – to use one of their buzz words – awesome. Last Sunday rookie Xander Schauffle won the Tou championship and Justin Thomas woke up yesterday $10m the richer by topping the Fedex.  Both of these and Daniel Berger will be vying for a Ryder [...]

Pargie’s rotten sporting weekend

I hate Kiradech Aphibarnrat, the pudgy Thai golfer. Mind, he speaks well of me and my intense dislike began at the the 15th hole of the Dutch yesterday. I had backed him each way at 40-1 and after 68 holes he was tourney leader. He double bogeyed the 15th. The 16th he hit a lovely pitch to the [...]
