Can an Englishman win the US PGA?

Can an Englishman win the US PGA?

If they can they are going to have to perform exceptionally well!

I had a nose at the last 55 championships and there is an ever so slight bias to the American players. Of the 55 championships I looked at, 42 winners were American. We also had three Australian wins, two South African, two Fijian (Vijay Singh of course) but also a South Korean, German, Irish and N.Ireland in there. Just no English.┬áThe dominance spills over to top ten finishers …

15th Major for Woods?

15th Major for Woods?

Tiger Woods got of to a steady start yesterday on the first day of the US Open in his quest for a 15th major. The market has been shortening Woods for tournaments recently and responded by pulling in his price from 9′s to 3.95. Surprise leader is Micheal Thomson who has come in from 690 to 30′s after posting a four under on the first round, don’t you just love golf! Conditions were described as ‘testing’ and this has caused …

Getting better at Golf

Getting better at Golf

In real life and on the markets!

Out with my son again this morning who got his first par today and I managed to get round the whole nine holes on par. Haven’t done that for a few years, one birdie, one bogey. I’m also getting better at understanding the golf markets. It’s taken a few years but I am finally getting under the skin on the markets. It’s proved pretty interesting and it’s also been a bit of a …

US Masters – The cut

US Masters – The cut

It’s been an excellent Masters so far and the big mover before the cut was Jason Day who was trading at 300′s yesterday and has come into 16′s. Fortunately, I had some money on Day at 240′s, so that’s really made up the numbers at the cut. Tiger looks menacing so I have taken profits on positions and will re-appraise during the third day. I have plenty of profit to play with now. If I can’t see any new opportunities …

US Masters golf

US Masters golf

First trade of the tournament is already done. When the market was formed Woods was way too short at 5′s so I laid him. His best finish this year is T10 and there is no evidence at the moment that he was anywhere near a 4/1 chance for the masters. It turned out a lot of people thought the same and he is at a much bigger price and I am out for the moment. Not very often you get …

Woods slumps to career worst

Woods slumps to career worst

Woods finished on 18 over at the WCG Bridgstone in Wisconsin, his worst performance as a professional. Playing at elite level in any sport is often about state of mind and Woods is obviously struggling at the moment. I’m suprised at the prices he has been offered to win these tournaments. His lack of form since returning from his break has thrown up many quality trading opportunities.

For the full story head on over to ESPN which has a good …

US Masters

US Masters

Picking a winner in any major golf tournament is a very, very tricky task. There are only a few strokes between the top of the leader-board and being out of contention. Any body who has played golf will know that a few strokes difference is only a hook, slice or shank away.

Anybody who has been on my course recently should know the angle I will be taking on this event. But the great unknown here is how Woods will …

Woods to take indefinite break

Woods to take indefinite break

Tiger Woods is taking an indefinite break from professional golf to tackle problems in his private life. In a statement on his website, he said he was aware of the disappointment “my infidelity” had caused to his family. “I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf. I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.”
