Of course golf clubs are in the bag not sporting superpowers but nonetheless some of the proposed participators have had their success in [...]

The Masters

In the end it was neither Supermex (Justin Thomas or Jordan Spieth) nor Shepherds Pie (Justin Rose ) for the Masters winner dinner but Sushi and Wagyu beef as Hideki Matsuyama became the first Japanese golfer to wear the green jacket.

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.

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.

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.
