  1. Zalatoris wins via playoff. Good to see the lad break his PGA tour maiden tag after many placed finishes in top notch events. Well done to @Johnrobertson and @fd1972uk dad for some superb tipping. Next event, is event two of the playoffs, the BMW Championship.
  2. 2:25 Pontefract Glory And Honour 2/1 Bet365
  3. Three selections today, all prices Bet365 WTA Concord Coco Vandeweghe 2.75 Tough match for Coco against Pera who is on a 16 match winning streak though I feel the odds are too high for Coco who although losing to Pera in their last head to head game, didn't get completely trounced. Lima Challenge Thiago Agustin Tirante 2.00 This youngster plays Carabelli in the final and I am going with this guy based on his impressive head to head victory over Carabelli last time they played in which Tirante won comfortably. Therefore feel he should be the favourite and is value in the price. ATP Cincinnati Maxime Cressy 2.10 Plays Botic Van de Zandeschulp (spelling possibly wrong lol) and I feel both players are very evenly matched and therefore again being a bit of value here on Cressy. Good luck to all and let's see how it all plays out
  4. All to play for going into the last round as thankfully the leaders didn't pull away and our guys closed the gap. Best placed is Zalatoris for @Johnrobertson and @fd1972uk dad. Fingers crossed he can break his PGA tour maiden tag. In fact, it will be fascinating to see how Straka, Spaun, Mullinax handle the pressure as it's not your typical final day leaderboard. Sam Burns also only three shots off the lead and I would go as far to say even players at 7 under are in with a chance of victory given a good final round.
  5. Halfway stage, Matsuyama withdrew before tournament started. McIlroy and Scheffler missed the cut. Rest of our guys nicely poised in mid division though they definitely require to kick on in today's round.
  6. Two ladies for me in the qualifiers at WTA Cincinnati: Maria Camila Osorio 2pts 2.00 Clara Tauson 1pt 2.25 Prices Bet365
  7. First event of the three event end of season playoffs on the PGA Tour. Really strong field as would be expected. Fantasy Golf squad this week is mainly looking at top 20 ranked OWGR players combined with Strokes gained approach the green stats for this season and from last year's WGC event played at the same course. Prices from Bet365 as a reference: Rory McIlroy 10/1 Scottie Scheffler 14/1 Justin Thomas 18/1 Will Zalatoris 22/1 Sam Burns 30/1 Hideki Matsuyama 50/1
  8. Last week a tough week for my tennis bets, 4 bets, zero wins, to leave a Total P/L -1.43pts Nothing stood out for me in ATP Montreal round one games, though I have one outsider in the ladies WTA Toronto who I feel is overpriced: WTA Toronto Anna Bondar 3.50 Prices Bet365
  9. Good shout with Shinkwin mate. Comfortable victory indeed.
  10. Fantasy Golf squad this week is once again me coat tailing the tipsters of the Sporting Life and Racing Post. Will post the squad here as with all due respect to the Wyndham Championships, it just didn't quite justify its own thread as once again the field strength is not the strongest as the elite players save themselves for the start of The Fedex Cup playoffs which begin next week. Squad: Si Woo Kim Sungjae Im Kevin Kisner Davis Riley Christiaan Bezuidenhout Adam Svensson
  11. Cheers for the kind words. Way I see it, you can't control the outcome of a sporting event, but you can control your own feelings, thoughts and reactions to it so I just choose to embrace team spirit and goodwill to all who post whatever the outcome of the sporting event may be. Thinking out aloud, maybe with golf being a tougher betting medium (in my humble opinion), it might make people being a bit more naturally patient possibly? From my short exploration so far in the tennis betting world, I definitely feel a higher expectation of myself in getting the result right because in over simplified terms it is at its basic level a two runner race. So rightly or wrongly it can ramp up one's own self expectation and therefore expectations in others. But for me ultimately, whatever the sport and whatever the outcome win lose or draw I'm grateful for all posters in sharing their thoughts and feelings on their respective sporting bets.
  12. After lots of sifting through matches it was a Quiet week last week for me in mining for that Tennis gold, so definitely grateful for some top tips from my fellow posters on here. 3 bets, 1 win for a small profit of +0.40pts leaving a Total P/L +2.57pts Here are my first round outsiders for this week, 1 gentleman and 3 ladies: ATP Washington Marcos Giron 4.33 WTA San Jose Shuai Zhang 2.30 Anhelina Kalinina 4.00 Qinwen Zheng 2.62 Prices Bet365
  13. To be fair mate, I didn't see Finau winning twice in a row as well. Especially when it took him so long to break his PGA Tour maiden tag. Confidence can definitely work wonders in the world of Sport.
  14. 6:25 Windsor Total Commitment 14/1 Bet365
  15. Hi FL, I'd like to give you a real in depth answer to your fair and valid question. Though I will be the first to hold my hands up and say I watch very minimal tennis. It mainly came down to price and the fact that when I looked through both players recent results profiles (last 6 or 7 competitions) and neither player had been progressing far in their respective competitions. This as well as Min had last her last few matches 2-1 which rightly or wrongly and maybe even naively said to me that Min has been competitive in her losses and not a complete forlorn hope at the price she was going off at. I think the main point I'm making here is, I am most definitely new to betting on the sport of tennis and I am just enjoying the journey of exploring the player profiles angle and see where it takes me. I am never going to be a guy who watches copious amounts of tennis so if anyone is following my selections they should definitely know that and bet accordingly. There are far more wiser minds on here who have a superb knowledge of the sport like yourself, @Torque @CzechPunter @matrixman and a few others whose names I forget off the top of my mind to mention (apologies) whose posts I have read that has inspired me to explore the tennis betting world. Hope that kind of answers your question in a long rambling way mate lol.
  16. Been sifting my way through the qualifier games on the WTA and I have two ladies who I have selected from San Jose: WTA San Jose Asia Muhammad 2.50 Grace Min 3.40 Prices Bet365
