Re: The New Joke Thread

A wise person once said: 1. We all love to spend money buying new clothes but we never realize that the best moments in life are enjoyed without clothes. 2. Having a cold drink on hot day with a few friends is nice, but having a hot friend on a cold night after a few drinks - PRICELESS. 3. Arguing o...

Re: W/C 2 November

Charles Schwab This is the big one for the old boys and Jim Furyk 100/30 looks like he only has to turn up to win the jackpot. He may well win but the layers are taking the " proverbial" Last year Retief Goosen 18/1 and Miguel Angel Jiminez 18/1 played the course really well and I will stick with th...

Re: W/C 12 October

Seniors- Dominion Starting to look a lot more " glamorous" these days and the bookies seem to have it as a 3 man shoot out with Bernhard relegated to 4th favourite- he won't like that ! I imagine he will be inspired. The prices of the new " Big 3 "- ( apologies to Arnie,Jack & Gary ) are simply just...

Re: W/C 14 September

BDC- bit of a route in the end. There is talk of him experimenting with a 47 or 48 driver {8 Obviously feels the need for more distance ! They say he put on 45lbs during lockdown- how did he manage that ? Anyway Wolff 66/1 paid out. Each way money for Ernie ( 6 at the last hole) and Karlsson. Champi...

Re: W/C 14 September

Pure Insurance Seniors. The Europeans stuffed them last week with " El Mechanico" beating the very short priced Steve Stricker. Jim Furyk is even shorter this week,being as short as 7/2 in some places! Jiminez has been playing non-stop for weeks and I cannot believe he can keep going- although I hop...

Re: W/C 31 August

Tour Championship Difficult betting proposition, given the " handicap " system. Think I will just bet on the lowest 72 hole total. Trouble is there are very few bookies giving prices. Maybe I will keep away from the top of the market and try Betfair giving 5 places. So, Billy Horschel 22/1- course f...

Monty 28/1 drove it like God last week- can't believe the price. Reteif 25/1 hurry up " Spr...

Re: W/C 3 August

I said to Mrs.B that only " bombers" will win in future...... Morikawa's eagle- could hit his Driver becau...

Thanks,Billy :( - it was only a question of time...... Just can't compete financially at that level.

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: 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...
