Doing these professional exams again this week. Doesn't get any easier. Someone said to me during the week. "maybe you are not an exam person!!
But that is the total opposite. I am an exam person. I've been doing exams since for the last 10 years. Whether I'm good at them is the Q?
This weeks "exam" on the PGA Tour brings together the new Big 3 on golf with Day, Rory & Spieth all at single figure prices. Something about taking a single price in golf that doesn't sit right. Maybe in a field with little depth it would give me confidence but in a field with this much quality my eyes quickly move down the page.

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.

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.

Both value plays. I like Marc Warren but 9/1 is very tight.
A better field than usual.

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.
