    Another week slips by and another lost stake. So, at present I’m 3 stakes down. It’s still early days with another 7 weeks worth of tournaments to go before I can really evaluate properly. I will continue with my approach, but I’ll be making adjustments this coming week by halving my bet size and using 2 selections per tournament. This means that the overall stake/risk will remain the same, and returns will be naturally reduced, but the advantage will be that a wider net is used. This will become clearer when I post my bets. The objective for me and I guess for most punters is to

    Halfway stage and all to play for. The tournaments still look wide open to me with many possibilities. Anyway my bets are now placed based mainly upon who seems to be ‘in form’ and ignoring a players reputation. The idea being that a placed single alone will return an overall profit. Zozo - Justin Rose 50/1 4 Italian - Tapio Pukkanen 80/1 4 Drive on - Matilda Castren 40/1 3 3 e/w singles 3 e/w doubles 1 e/w treble Cheers for now

    Everything you’ve said is correct, but big odds and lots of places unfortunately doesn’t count for much if you don’t get a run for your money, hence my own approach instead. And yes...we definitely need the gods and any good luck charm you can think of if it helps us all to pick a winner now and again. And good luck to you too mate...see you on the other side.

    No selections for me just yet. I’ll wait until I see which players are looking to be competitive out of the 50 odd realistic possibilities first which for me will be after 2 rounds have been completed. Anything before then is an extreme gamble in my book as results have clearly shown and I’m not keen personally on the scattergun approach with numerous selections being made, but good luck to those that are able to make a profit that way...after all, profit is the name of the game! Cheers for now

    No luck for me this week, which given how the total scores of the winner down to 10th for example generally fall within a small window of less than half a percent usually, should come as no real surprise, and indicates how tough it is to find winners. I’ll continue with my approach nevertheless and just like everyone else I need a little bit of luck to find that elusive winner. - 1 Cheers

    At the halfway stage for CJ and Scottish tournaments. I’m looking to bet against the obvious. CJ Cup - Fitzpatrick 33/1 4pl Scottish- Chawrasia 200/1 4pl 2 e/w singles 1 e/w double Cheers for now

    Golf betting, as with all sports betting, is guided by the ‘form’ book of course. The problem before a golf tournament starts though is we don’t know who is going to ‘show up’ to the party. Often, as the last week demonstrated, the money was burned for many just 2 days into a tournament (well it was for me anyway). So, I’ll be countering that this week by ignoring a players ‘form’ reputation and instead looking at a players ‘in play’ form within the current competition after 2 rounds have been completed. This way I’ll know who’s ‘turned up’ and who hasn’t. It doesn’t guarantee a

    A week to forget from my pov! 2 of my 4 selections didn’t even make the cut, and the other 2 made no challenge. I think this highlights the danger of ‘pre tournament start’ betting, where the biggest odds and the most places being available is clearly offset by not knowing how a player is going to perform in the actual competition. I will deal with that in this coming weeks events with bets being placed after the completion of the 2nd round, accepting the fact that there will obviously be reduced odds and places. More on that during the week. So far, for record/accountancy

    Ok... I have 4 (speculative) entries in 4 different comps as follows: BMW - Jorge Campillo 80/1, 8 Shriners - Pat Perez 100/1, 8 KPMG - In Gee Chun - 66/1, 6 SAS - Bob Estes - 55/1, 6 4 e/w singles 6 e/w doubles ‘Pre-tournament start’ betting is always highly speculative of course, but small affordable stakes as in this case can have decent returns. Ill keep a record of my bets for the next 10 weeks worth of competitions that I enter, whether it be ‘pre tournament start’ bets or after the cut etc. Cheers for now
  10. Nothing too scientific...the easier the better...but alas not necessarily profitable, but it is fun and affordable for me.
  11. Hi Fader...not really a system as such...just a speculative golf bet with fairly big odds where I also include low stake doubles (just in case). I don’t particularly study form or anything (maybe I should, who knows), but I’m just mainly looking for biggish odds. My thinking is that apart from maybe the proven 4 or 5 top golfers in the world who are obvious and too short in price, leaves the middle group remaining who on their day can win or place in any tournament, so on that very crude and simple basis I pick a player who has recently shown signs of form and who is good value. Ill
  12. Golf bets for upcoming week now placed in 4 events. Small stakes, fairly big odds. 4 ew singles, 6 ew doubles. The simple idea is that a placed single alone will cover the whole bet. Not sure if here is the place I post?
  13. That is interesting. I will certainly bear that in mind the next time a place situation occurs. In fact, the next time it occurs I will relay the bet details here for your comments. 2 or 3 heads are better than 1 after all. Other than that, I have nothing else to add on this topic for now, but feel sure it will be re visited...hopefully soon (if I’m lucky enough with this weeks golf bets that is)
  14. I agree they usually offer maximum places, however, what I’ve said regarding the place returns is a fact, and that was confirmed with my last returns on McCarthy again. As I said, the golfing industry rules on places is unique, which is why I queried my returns previously. If you know of a bookie that doesn’t apply these strange special rules for golf, then please advise so that we can all benefit...cheers mate
  15. Paddy Power and Bet365 I discussed in length with both, because a bet I had a few weeks back appeared light on my returns. A reply from paddy power even told me that you’re better off always to be alone on a place and said that it’s about just being lucky! It is a crazy rule I know, but pleased that you realise exactly what I’m saying. This is why I have brought it to peoples attention, because I doubt many realise this special golf rule, which I have been told is the industry standard for golf.
