Charl & Casey came good for me last week on EW money for a 66.4 pts return for my 40pts outlay.
Running Bank now 146 pts.
The golf thread on the Irish sports section of betfair forum is always a good read with callitasucit a notable poster who does an impressive write up most weeks and posts up regular 3 ball tips during the tournament. Always good to hear different opinions in the week up the event. There is only so much time in the day and if others can cut down on the workload it makes final picks much easier.
This weeks picks.
Czech Masters - Snap from last week.
Saw enough to suggest I was on the right track last week. Lipsky especially looks primed for a good finish.

Licking my wounds after last week. Lost a bit of discipline with bet sizing and ended up a bad week in the end.
To help with discipline I am keeping a bank update.
Bank 120 points. ATM 1 points is €25
Made in Denmark.
Was an excellent event last season but its position after the PGA champ means it fails to get a great field again.
David Lipsky 66/1 2pts EW
Kevin Phelan 125/1 2pts EW Disaster of a final round in Madeira took him out of contention. 2 pt EW PP
Both value plays. I like Marc Warren but 9/1 is very tight.
A better field than usual.
Paul Casey 34/1 2pts EW Betbright 6 places
Brendon de Jonge 150/1 4pts EW PP 6 places
Webb Simpson 2pts EW BFred
Harris English 70/1 4pts Win Exchange
Charl Schwartzel 50/1 ...
Going into the PGA at Whistling Straits I had Oosthuizen & Stenson as my main hopes with a a good back up team of Schwartzel, Casey, & Dustin.
Louis and Stenson never got going but with Kaymer & Dustin thereabouts I had constructed a good book by Sunday evening against Day & Spieth.
Alas neither got going.
Dustin bogeying the Par 3 17 did the EW money and my other T10 bet on Brendan Steele went boom when he missed a 8ft putt for par on 18.
Lost a bit of discipline with some of my 18 hole match betting so I would say it was a reckless week. Need to be more disciplined.
