Welcome back after the break. Betfair market up and obviously a wide open event. Will need to study and maybe use the horses for courses theory and see who has played the course well in the past. Good as any place to start.

well what can i say dustin really showed them how to play second round and is a near certain winner now at last he had round without the dreaded 3 putt but for the 3 x 3 putts first round he would be already won this event but if he doesnt 3 putt tonight they simply cant catch him. he had injuries first half of last year but second half he was no less than awesome that with  the fact hes best at not three putting made him a good thing in this tourny.
i hate big heads but if you check pandy post for this event i told you he was a good thing here that plus the fact im a better teacher at golf than a player but play far too much golf anyway plus i read and collect golf stats all the time. it looks like im having another profitable golf season, need it cos i just booked a golf break for me and mrs pandy in york 2 nights plus 3 days golf 4 star for £215 each thanks for the holiday dustin

Report DONEMYLOT January 8, 2013 11:20 AM GMT
I'm on and am not confident, purely because of Stricks. Looked in trouble at times but plays this course quite beautifully. Just hope Dustbin doesnt get ahead of himself. He did miss a few putts first round, when should have gone to -6. Granted made up for it, but that doubt over his finesse shots still lingers.

Should be fun tho
Report Deplasterer January 8, 2013 11:40 AM GMT
Far from over this, though wouldn't want to lay too much of Dustbin tbh. Good luck all those still in with a shout, I'm off to study up on Saffers event on Thursday.
Report callitasucit January 8, 2013 2:17 PM GMT
Waiting on a nice few bob on Dusty, and think his price is about right at moment, but tempted to lay off, and hope he loses. Have absolutely nothing against DJ, but the cocky Pandy seems to a complete fuc*in sap!! If he mentions 'doesn't 3-putt' one more time! If Dusty had putted half decent last night, this gig be over. He made nothing of note,compared to say someone like Keegan Bradley. Pandy credits himself with picking Dusty due to his ability to avoid 3 putts. I do believe he had 3 of these yesterday, quite poor, and to suggest this is why he is leading is ridiculous. I think you will find Pandy, that it is in fact DJs long game that has put him in such a commanding position. Hope your not as premature with Mrs Pandy in that York hotel room, or she could be looking for someone else with better touch around the short grass herself!!!
Report dessys January 8, 2013 2:21 PM GMT
for all those lamenting Dustin's putting, go check out how many putts Stricker missed under 4 foot in round 1....quite astonishing.

I am on Stricker and I am quietly confident he can overcome a 3 shot deficit. That said, you'd have to have seen my luck last year to believe it. When I was on a big leader he choked, when I was on the guy a few shots behind in second, the leader won, and when I was 4 or 5 behind, someone from 8 behind would win it....

Come on Dustin, get spraying that ball wild!!
Report callitasucit January 8, 2013 2:29 PM GMT
Hope your luck gets better this year Dessy, I backed Toms last yr going into final round at 130, only for Two Gloves to come from further behind and chin him. Then,waiting on Tommy for a 5 timer on 2balls in first rd last night, 2 ahead playing 17, he fuc*in triple bogeys, whilst Beljan makes bird! Thanks Tommy!!A note on Strickers putting, it has gone sharply downhill in the last ten months. He doesn't look nearly so reliable on them 6-10 footers. I fear his wining days at the top table may be gone.
Report dessys January 8, 2013 2:33 PM GMT
its definitely a concern for stricker this year......

Though his 125 yard stat is simply hard to believe. If he sprinkles a few short courses in where the 125 yardage comes into play he'll still win only playing 10 times..

He probably is still value, won't bother laying any off. Strickers putting frailties, and injury dont inspire confidence, and DJ should be better equipped than most to deal with the rigours of 54 holes in two days of high winds. Few quid on Bradley without.

Dustin is still value price now imo. He will probably get 4 or 5 birdies minimum today with conditions even better and he has his nearest rival alongside him so he knows what he needs to do in that regard. Next man back isnt feeling too well either so cant imagine him going crazy and shooting the lights out. He is playing rock solid too hitting greens for fun.

donemylot, he is a sublime talent and getting better

my main one would be driver on 17 yesterday

I seen Dufner nearly run out of fairway and I wondered what Dustin would hit. Lo and behold he hit the driver.

Just the odd reining back on really strategic holes and he would be challenging for majors.

But, it seems to work for him so maybe the ultra aggresive pays for him.
Report DONEMYLOT January 9, 2013 8:32 AM GMT
par, I agree.

The Dustbin/Duffers/Bradley brigade look like having a great year and it was his dd that did the trick this week. I have no doubt, like many, that he should already be holding one, if not two, of the big ones. I do still harbor doubts over his short game, although thats improved massively, just think on really tricky tracks he may just lag behind (not by much) the true chippers of the game. That chipped eagle, that was going past a few feet and could have changed the game completely. nevertheless there are no pictures on scorecards.

One thing for sure with those three and Bubba about, its always very good to watch

Just before the Volvo and Sony, I would like to thank all those who took time to contribute to this tread as we awaited the tournament to get going. Without your input, it would have been even more frustrating. I know there were not too many profiteers, unless they did not care to post news of their  winnings. Such is their right. Me, I got out on top after a good bet in a 2 ball 1st round between Keegan Bradley and Huh. I then got into a bit of trouble in laying Dustin to win but took out the loss by having a full covering bet on him to win @ 1.7..So just €15 profit on outright market.but very happy with that. Onwards and upwards now guys and Thursday is nearly upon us already. Do not forget Max is still taking entries for the Fantasy Golf Competition. If you are not in you cannot win.
