Reasoning: There are some really good tipsters out there. They know the sport inside out and they have time on their hands to do the research.

Method: If I follow 10+ tipsters, who would most likely tip 4-5 selections, I'd probably end up with 30+ different picks. Based on the previews, and available value, I will narrow this down and choose 3 or 4 bets.

Aim: First and foremost, to make a profit! Also I hope to become more disciplined when placing my own bets. My staking can be up and down, and I tend to throw money at silly longshots. So hopefully this thread will encourage me to keep things sensible. And in time maybe I will learn more about the sport, the different courses and the players, making bets with my own knowledge.

I fully expect a slow start. I'll start the bank at 0 points. If it gets to -100 I'll knock it on the head! I don't suppose I will bet more than 10 points a week.

CJ Cup

Louis Oosthuizen 1pt ew @ 40/1 sky 7 places

Joaquin Niemann 1pt ew @ 50/1 sky

Scottish Championship

Matthew Southgate 1pt ew @ 30/1 pp 7 places

Jack Senior 1pt ew @ 60/1 pp

Brandon Stone 1pt ew @ 33/1 pp

Scott Hend 0.5pt ew @ 80/1 sky 6 places

I considered the above picks to be the best value. However, the most tipped went to Justin Thomas and Eddie Pepperell. So I'll have them in a double.

Thomas/Pepperell 0.5pt ew double @ 200/1 B365 5 places

12 points staked

Bank: -19

Glad I got Arnaus @ 33's, continued to be tipped/backed and is now 25's. Although last time there was such a strong selection, I think it was Lowry a few weeks ago, he didn't make the cut!

Three more for the Italian Open:

Laurie Canter 1pt ew @ 45/1 pp

Joachim Hansen 1pt ew @ 45/1 betfred

Justin Walters 0.5pt ew @ 125/1 pp

And three for the ZOZO Championship:

Collin Morikawa 1pt win @ 20/1 hills

Bubba Watson 1pt ew @ 33/1 sky

Russell Henley 1pt ew @ 45/1 pp

Bank: -20

🤞🏻 

All each way are 7 places, 1/5 of the odds.

Bitterly disappointed that Canter didn't get the win. Had a chance to cash out for about 30pts, but let it run and just the 10pt return from him. Also 4.5pt return from Arnaus getting T5. Not all bad, but feel it should have been a 60pt return. 

I don't expect anything from ZOZO. Bubba could potentially get a place, and it was a great round from Henley yesterday. But i can't see past Thomas or Rahm.

Returns: 14.5

Bank: -5.5

Surprised to see Bubba and Henley both get a place. They return 17.5 points. That's 4 places out of 7 selections this weekend. Still gutted to miss out on the win in the Italian 😔 but after 3 weeks we're in profit 😁

Bank: 12 points

And Skybet were refunding on J B Hansen after he withdrew. But not Betfred 👎🏻

It seems the tipsters are getting their  write-ups done earlier and earlier. The Cyprus Open is the preferred betting option this week, not so much for the Bermuda Championship which apart from 2 clear favourites appears to be wide open. 

Cyprus Open

Joakim Lagergren 1.5pt ew @ 45/1 

Sami Valimaki 1pt ew @ 28/1

Antoine Rozner 1pt ew @ 35/1

All 7 places 1/5 odds pp

-------

Bermuda Championship

Brendan Todd 1pt win  @ 14/1  pp

Paddy are doing 8 places in this, so possibly an outsider pick to come.

8 points staked.

Bank: 4 points

I won't dwell on last week! Full steam ahead for The Masters. As expected there are tons of previews out there. But most are looking for some value, with DJ and BDC not that popular because of their skinny price.  I feel the 6 most tipped players are a good mix of value, ranging from 16/1 to 70/1.

Schauffele 1pt win @ 16/1 pp

Finau 1pt ew @ 25/1

Hatton 1pt ew @ 22/1

B Watson 1pt ew @ 25/1

C Smith 1pt ew @ 66/1

Kokrak 0.5pt ew @ 70/1

All each way are with Sky, 11 places.

Bank: -7.5

🤞🏻

Only 1 name getting mentioned more than any other in the Joburg Open.

M Armitage 1pt ew @ 22/1 pp 7 places

And a couple of popular choices in the RSM Classic.

P Kizzire 0.5pt ew @ 150/1 pp 8 places

D Redman 1pt ew @ 66/1 pp 8 places

Will likely add another 1 tomorrow, probably Henley, but a few more previews to go over yet.

Bank: 1.5

Niklas Lemke 1pt ew @ 66/1 sky 5 places

Over to Mexico in the Mayakoba Classic:

C Connors 1pt ew @ 28/1 pp 8 places

A Long 1pt ew @ 55/1 sky 8 places

Bank:  -12.5

🤞🏻

Got a 12 point return on Long getting T3.

Off to Dubai again, which I believe is the last one of the year.

McIntyre 1pt ew @ 25/1 sky 7 places

Burmester 1pt ew @ 70/1 pp 7 places

Also seen a couple of tips for the US Women's Open:

Jin Young Ko 1pt ew @ 16/1 sky 7 places

Maybe one more pick to come for Dubai.

Bank: -6.5

🤞🏻

Hi mate...not sure how Reed managed a place for you. He finished 21st so far as I can tell.

Btw, I also had Niemann.  He had his chance but missed birdie putt on 18th which would’ve sewn it it up without needing a playoff.
