Looks like the team format hasn't exactly captured the forum's imagination yet.  Shame because it's nice to have something difficult to break up the post-Masters lull.
Report mr meagi April 26, 2018 2:57 PM BST
Hi TB, Bradley misses 3ft 6in putt for birdie on first and you wonder why people stay clear of this tournament, I'm up to my neck in this with no obvious exit and I was only passing by. For some reason, Keegan Bradley get's to me like only Garcia can.Angry
Report Total Bosman April 26, 2018 3:43 PM BST
Bradley will drive you to the poor house for sure.  Seems to give himself a birdie putt inside 10 feet on every hole, such a good ball striker.  But makes none of them.
Report Total Bosman April 26, 2018 5:22 PM BST
I guess the fact Furyk & Duval are leading and Cauley & Thomas 6 back already illustrates why there's not been much punted on this.
Report mengmeng April 26, 2018 5:46 PM BST
just because i feel bad for you mr meagi being here all alone i have had a little flutter on watsom/kuchar to go well, their games should sompliment eachother especially in the first round format, Watsom making lots of birdies and kuchar making pars on the holes bubba messes up seems the way to go forward with obviously kuchar adding birdies himself hopefully on holes bubba is having a mare on.

anyway thats the plan
Report Total Bosman April 26, 2018 6:09 PM BST
The interesting part of this will be seeing which teams will properly dovetail in foursomes after the ultra low scores in the four balls. Glad they've changed the order, foursomes on the final day will be much more challenging and interesting.
Report mengmeng April 26, 2018 6:43 PM BST
agreed, i wasnt a fan of the last day with the silly low scores possibly as it meant virtually anyone could come from behind and win makking it far too difficult to bet on the last day.
Report Total Bosman April 26, 2018 6:54 PM BST
Yeah, when it comes to the crunch you want every shot to count and both guys having to play well to lift the trophy, was madness really to have it the other way round.
Report mengmeng April 26, 2018 7:41 PM BST
i think the madness was having a bet in this thing, my group have parred the first 2 and looks like par on 3 and i already feel like they have lost their chance unless they basically birdie every hole from 4 onwards. i remember why i hate this thyp of play now, unless your group is the one leading you just feel totally hopeless watching them behind !

On the week of the China Open , I have been watching the Chinese pair today in the doubles. they are working very well together and they are a stupid price for this....you know I had a 'nibble'...backed Dou last week at 1000/1 and he played well..you heard it here first.Wink

Dou sinks a 30 footer at the last to very quietly tie your boys for the lead.

Got a tiny bit during the round as they were sneaking up the board.  Lindheim / Werenski are my main outsiders of choice this week.
Report mengmeng April 27, 2018 5:13 PM BST
i added jones and compbell when they were on 4th hole and forgot to mention it, so bit of after timing, but mainly to rant and the 2 8 foot putts they just missed for birdies.

then three putt missing 4 footer for par..not happy

Report mengmeng April 27, 2018 5:32 PM BST
there is a real chance the lead after today could still be -12 or very close to it so could really bunch up the field for the weekend, i think that would do the event some good and inject some much needed excitment

Some complete train wrecks happening.  Know foursomes is tougher but it's not that hard a course, shouldn't really be seeing so many doubles and others.

If the pack stays together this could be chaos on Sunday given the big scores about.  I have a slight feeling Glover & Reavie's games will work well in both formats so they could a bit of distance in it this afternoon.

Yeah, takes some doing, that.  Such is the topsy curve nature of this that Dahmen / McCarthy are co-leading on day 3 and available at 600, and it probably isn't the wrong price.

Scoring seems even better than day 1.  Looks like they'll need something about double digits under par today to keep pace.

Better than 'a kick in the nuts' but still a losing week for me. I am putting this 'thing' on my list of 'things' to avoid next year, it is up there with punting on X Factor and Eurovision.IMHO. Back to Top 40 Market for me next week..nobody died and I do not begrudge Billy and Scott a bit of luck .
