Re: The New Joke Thread

While riding my Harley, I swerved to avoid hitting a deer, lost control and landed in a ditch, severely banging my head. Dazed and confused I crawled out of the ditch to the edge of the road when a shiny new convertible pulled up with a very beautiful woman who asked, "Are you okay? As I looked up, ...

Re: Film thread (and the odd book)

I remember some time ago that a few of us used to watch Gold Rush. At present they are showing Parker's Trail, with Parker prospecting in Ausralia. He was very much a " Marmite" character but with hindsight it was maybe an age thing. He has grown up in this series and it is a good watch. It seems as...

Re: The New Joke Thread

A man went into a Bristol supermarket and tried to buy half a cauliflower. The very young greens-produce assistant told him that they sold only whole cauliflowers. The man persisted, and asked to see the manager, and the boy went to find him. Walking into the stock room, the boy said to his manager,...

Re: W/C 2 March

Hoag Not sure that the Champions Tour is particularly weak, Gary, maybe Langer is just a " one off" . His swing and physique don't seem to have changed and when his putter is hot then he seems unbeatable. Could easily win again but at that price then he can do so. Might be a week early but I thought...

Morocco Champions

Staying with the Seniors for a while. Seem to be a lot less potential winners, plus Ernie is giving the old boys a chance this week.

So, Jiminez 7/1 and Retief 9/1 win only . Woody Austin 16/1 and Monty 16/1 each way .

Re: 2020 Players To Follow

Senior Tour Pretty obvious bet, especially after Sunday's result ( El Mechanico beat Ernie and Fred in a play off, with Retief 4th ) but Ernie Els must be a great bet for the Charles Schwab. He needs to commit to this Tour and not just pick and choose. Time will tell but this does seem to be a much ...

Retief beaten in play off x-) Jeff Maggert eagles 3rd play off hole ! Jiminez 4th . Seems a much easier betting proposition as it appears there are only about 20 realistic contenders for each event.

Charles Schwab This is the big one for the old boys- $ 1M annuity for the overall champion. Usually it is Langer's to lose and I guess he must be favourite for the event if not the overall title.
