Worst field for this I think I have ever seen, but out of that have managed to pick out a few. Gone with Sneds, Lingmerth, Smith and Chalmers.

Once again
On behalf of GC people, apologies for serving up this joint.
As mentioned(last yr/s) and in fairness to the original Japanese designer who was instructed to make it a 'member friendly' setup,this place has had more band-aides than the Red Cross.

Swamp Fox has done a better job than the previous attempts but it still sits on a parcel of land that is rather average.
The viewing will look somewhat improved with more swayle type green-side undulations and as is the case with Pancake greens a missed putt may simply be due to the crudeness of the Flat green rather than the crudeness of the guy waving the flat stick.

ball striking ball striking ball striking is the order of the day here, or thats what there after, snippet from an article i read....

"The Royal Pines redesign is an attempt to level the playing field. The explicit goal is to bring  players of lesser power back into the game by offering them the chance to excel with superior shot making and distance control.

The power hitters must now master their direction from the tee and control the tempo of their swing to finesse their iron shots to the many subtle pin placements the putting surfaces have to offer. Failure to do so will result in balls be repelled from the putting surfaces thus making birdies more difficult to accumulate."

finalize my picks shortly but see a few names above that may well be in...

In the name of Holy God how can a player who is out of form be trading @ 4.3 to 4.4 to win this. Adam has to be a lay.
Report Catch Me ifyoucan November 30, 2016 9:04 PM GMT
tober,

Ben Coley in Sporting Life - 8pts win Adam Scott at 9/2 (Coral) - worth another chance given he's the same price and there's nobody anywhere near Jordan Spieth's class in opposition.

A fortnight ago, I was stung by an each-way bet on Adam Scott in the Australian Open. In my preview, I called upon Scott's remarkable record on home soil, which had seen him hit the frame in 10 of his previous 11 starts including three wins. Regrettably, that record now reads 10 from 12 after he could only manage a share of 14th.
However, I'm compelled to go in again at the same price of 4/1 (9/2 in a place) for a variety of reasons - indeed he's an even more confident selection than he was back then, despite having failed to produce what was expected.

Firstly, the fact that Jordan Spieth won the Australian Open served as a reminder that these Triple Crown events Down Under almost always go the way of one of the very best players in the field. This time, there is no Spieth, yet Scott - largely because he finished a modest 14th - is no shorter than he was two weeks back. That in itself is pretty incredible given that Spieth took up close to 25% of the book.

The second-favourite here is Cameron Smith, who is undeniably promising, will probably play well and is bound to win at some stage, perhaps even this week. But the fact is he's outside the world's top 100 and has not yet tasted success as a professional. Next is Marc Leishman, who is no longer in the world's top 50, has just two notable wins in almost a decade as a professional and appears no closer to his best form than Scott, alongside whom he finished ninth in the World Cup of Golf last week. Leishman has played well in this event many times but never has he bettered a distant, never-nearer fourth in 2009. For a man of his ability that's a poor return and he was fully 10 shots adrift of Scott here in 2013.

In other words, this is a weak field, packed with outclassed locals, out-of-form European raiders and, yes, the odd promising player like Smith - and English namesake, Jordan - who are dangerous to some extent but have not yet won at this level.

Then there's the course. Royal Pines first hosted the Australian PGA in 2013, and Scott beat Rickie Fowler by four strokes, making just three bogeys all week and shooting 14-under which, on this layout, is a phenomenal effort. By way of comparison, defending champion Nathan Holman only needed to shoot level-par last year and he made 12 bogeys and three doubles en route to a play-off victory over Dylan Frittelli and Harold Varner III in what was a particularly weak renewal. Scott's only other visit to Royal Pines came in 2014 when, as defending champion, he lost a lengthy play-off to Greg Chalmers, who'd been fourth a couple of weeks earlier and simply kept on pouring in putts as he came with an incredible run on Sunday, shooting 64 to mug Scott on the line.

One other thing to note is the significance of Scott choosing this event over the Hero World Challenge, which is being played in the Bahamas, effectively on the doorstep of his home. Last year, Scott chose the Bahamas, citing the importance of giving back to his community there and the switch back to this low-grade event in Australia is a noteworthy one. Recent course form figures of 1-2 and a field lacking any other member of the world's top 50 make prices in the region of 4/1 about Scott impossible to ignore. It's not as if he's been playing poorly, either, and if everything clicks he'll beat these by many shots. If things don't click, he could still get by and win with his B game.
I believe it's pretty much as simple as can he get off to a solid start on Thursday? If the answer is yes, he will only get shorter en route to a positive end to a year which perhaps didn't deliver quite as much as expected when he won twice in the spring.

@Catch Me.... I cannot disagree with anything you say as it is all plain facts. However, the number of runners do not lie and it just takes the one guy to do your dough. When entering my team in the forecast, I had included Harold Varner 111 but then changed him for Meesawat and Harold became my sub. Here is a guy that CAN play and I have been shadowing him for a year now. He just needs to get that one bad round in 4 out of his equation.  Just had a fiver at 15.00 when I see him -4. Was going in bigger at -3 but missed the price when he went to -4.

It's Cameron Smith's first individual professional title, after his final round 4-under-par 32-36=68 totalled 18-under 270 at the Royal Pines Resort in Surfer Paradise, forced pre-round leader Jordan Zunic into a play-off, which Smith won at the second extra hole - despite the efforts of a particularly vocal heckler in the gallery.
Smith had to back off his approach on the 72nd hole because of the heckler, leading his caddie, Sam Pinfold, to run over to the rope line and confront the fan, who was subsequently kicked out by security. "He just said a few nasty things there on the left-hand side, telling me not to choke," - Smith. One of these c*nts (and we use 'le mot juste') Afterthought, johnnythebull or bobweenit (three born chokers themselves) must be on holiday in Queensland Tongue Out
Smith came from three swings back of fellow Aussie Zunic, who looked as if he could take a six-shot lead into the final 18 but finished bogey, double bogey on Saturday.
CAMERON was a winner of the PGA Tour two-man Zurich Classic in April - now receives a two-year exemption on the European Tour and exemption into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational in August. Devil
