No problem. You can get Steve Palmer's tips a day early on the RP's golf podcast, The Sweet Spot, btw.

Europe retained the Solheim Cup on a tie which probably does not count for betting purposes.

not by much though tom kim was 12/1 and he had 7 losers. just would like to see if he's ahead or not. everyone seems to follow him but my results backing his tips never seem to return much. he had a good ryder cup though
Report Ramruma October 17, 2023 12:36 AM BST
I really do not know. My suspicion is a loss in recent years after a golden period some years back. Right now, he's had a winner in four of the last five weeks (from memory).

I guess it would be possible for you to go through this thread and compare his tips with results but that's just the weekly previews. Palmer also gives daily tips as tournaments progress. And then there is the question of how many points he tips, 4 points e/w on Tom Kim, for instance, who was his main tip.
Report Senyatta October 17, 2023 1:13 AM BST
ya it would be difficult re each ways/stakes etc. he's on a good run lately that's for sure. hopefully he can finish the year in style. i like the fact we have 3 tours now to bet on.

Mark Roe has to be the biggest gob**** that SKY use on their golf broadcasts.    He was one of the poorest pros on tour but listening to his bull sh one t behind the mike on SKY one would think he won several majors ( IF one didn't know better)
Fancies himself as a coach in the Butch Harman mould and his constant criticism of less than perfect shots by pros ten times better than he ever was is simply disgusting.
Sack him SKY.   He's a narcissistic imposter.
Report fullback October 21, 2023 2:42 PM BST
The only answer to Roe is MUTE the sound.   He's getting worse by the day.   Today he's telling a pretty respectable tour pro how to get more width in his backswing.   OMG what a plonker he is.

What has Roe to do with Steve Palmer's tips? If you want to debate Roe's merits or otherwise, start a thread with his name in the title. I don't listen to him so have no opinion either way.
