A sporting life

The news of Tiger Wood’s serious car accident in California yesterday has been dominating the world’s news media outlets since it happened and will have saddened many – and not just golfing and sports fans. At this stage – before the investigations are completed and the facts established [...]

The ATT at Pebble Beach

Alan Tanner rightly takes centre stage of the Rust today after Fulham ‘s victory over Everton but give some credit to Pargie who had wagers on Maverick McNealy, Jordan Spieth and Patrick Cantlay at the ATT at Pebble Beach. The former finished runner up to winner Daniel Berger and the latter two [...]

Sporting weekend

I delayed my post to report on the Super Bowl Tampa Bay victory in the early hours of Monday. To both my surprise and loss though no expert on American football, Tom Brady won his seventh Superbowl ring aged 43 for the Tampa Bay Buccs. However it was his team that bottled up Patrick Mahames, Tyreek [...]

My sporting weekend

Although it was not the most successful weekend for me betting-wise a number of selection issues were helpfully clarified for European Ryder Cup captain Podraig Harrington. Unlike his American counterpart Steve Stricker who has six, Harrington has only 3 captain’s picks. Two of these potentially [...]

A glorious weekend of sport

Not only did I watch a variety of exciting sport this weekend but had results in both golf tourneys. The European Tour is up and running with the Gulf swing at Abu Dhabi.

I was still in the land of the conscious at [...]

The US PGA began at its western most state Hawaii with the Sentry event on the Plantation Course Kapalua Maui. It’s a beautiful setting with the ocean and surfing breakers beyond and attracted a notable field including Dustin Johnson, Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Thomas and Patrick Reed. My money [...]

Golfing review of 2020

With only one Major cancelled, The Open at Royal St. George’s, I  must start by congratulating the US PGA and the European Tour in putting on such a full schedule. My golfer of the year was the evergreen Lee Westwood, some 27 years after he started on tour he won the race to Dubai and featured [...]

Sporting weekend

Before I boast of a successful betting weekend I would like to pay tribute to 47 year old Lee Westwood for winning the Road to Dubai. For 2 years Westwood was once  world number one but because he has never won a Major and his name is not Rory McIlroy he has never got the recognition. Remember [...]

Peter Alliss

Before reporting on the weekend golf I must pay my tribute to Peter Alliss. I admire anyone who has two successful careers, most of us cannot manage one, but Peter Alliss was both successful golfer and broadcaster. As a golfer I  would classify him as very good. Not a great though he might have [...]
