My initial thoughts are why is Tiger playing this tournament and not getting a period of rest during his ongoing treatment for some back problem. Is the appearance money so high or is it to honour the man that is Arnold Palmer. I would have thought that the Masters would be high up in his priority list.

An interesting move today on the Betfair market is a move from 21.00 into 17.00 on Justin Rose.

pin position most be tough today, and maybe add fast greens...3 putting paradise
Report Total Bosman March 21, 2014 2:37 PM GMT
Yeah, very poor scoring today compared to yesterday.  Obviously tried to make it a bit tougher today and the greens do seem to be rolling out a lot, although maybe some guys are trying too hard to catch Adam and forcing the issue.  It'll be tough for Adam too later, but with no-one breathing down his neck another decent round and he could be away with this.

its all speculating (and maybe some hoping) but if it also firms up it could be brutal afternoon...could be a very good weekend if Scott struggles today

Report Total Bosman March 21, 2014 3:03 PM GMT
Kinda clutching at straws, but a lot more pressure on Adam than yesterday.  Said himself yesterday he had flu and low expectations, now he's got a lead and a strong look at world number one, different story.  Surely can't have a putting round quite like yesterday, and the ones he was rattling home yesterday could easily turn into 6 foot par putts today.

So yeah, he might only win by 5.
Report therhino March 21, 2014 3:11 PM GMT
Easy to forget with yesterdays scoring it is a hard track. Back to normal today. 3 rounds of even par could well be enough for Adam.
Report Total Bosman March 21, 2014 3:16 PM GMT
It's also pretty hard to back a guy with flu at roughly evens with 3 rounds to play.

72& of the play left and a 3 shot gap. I know Scott is probably paling the most consistent and best golf of the last 2 years and should rightly have been awarded no. i spot last year but he is not that good that we can call a winner yet. I dont wish it on him and I have him in the competition but one double bogey from him will throw it wide open again and there are still plenty able young guns playing without fear and a birdie run is not in any way out of the question. At this stage, I want to congratulate Padraig Harrington on 2 solid rounds that leave him at -4. All players learnt a lesson re wearing sunscreen and from now on in Europe, casual or club team members could do worse than pack the golfbag with sunscreen. No good leaving it in the looker. Boots have a tremendous range at prices we can afford. Do not use out of date products.

Hope you did ok on the gee gees Quincy. No bet for me apart from the golf and a small bet on Man Utd. Traded a little at lowest prices on Scott and backed back a bit higher. But sitting on a very nice card if Adam has a poorish front nine tomorrow. I am showing amazing patience, something that I was unaware of it being in me.

toberaheena, you know I'm getting old and slower on the uptake.  Which two ladies in yellow. Confused
Won on the horses, covered all the missed cuts.  Trading on the golf, reduced my liability on Scott by 45 percent, reduced my liabilities on the field by 75 percent. 

Was a bit unlucky at times with the 1.05 field bets, laid two in one race.  Desperately wanted Take The Cash placed in the 5.05 Bangor, traded at less than 9/4 to win the race, finished in the usual place for good each way bets, (fourth).
Report toberaheena March 23, 2014 1:09 PM GMT
An unusual small drift of about 5 or 6 ticks in Adam since the early hours of today which is not stopping. Somebody must know something as I do not think it is a natural drift. I was very impressed with the experience shown by Adam Scott's caddy, Steve Williams, early in yesterdays round. When there was a more than anxious few holes, he totally took charge of things and like the excellent pro that Scott is, he listened, took his medicine and marched on. Patrick Reed might take a leaf out of Scotts book and employ a decent caddy. @Quincy, sounds like you are back on top of things .

I've had to back Keegan here, he has so much momentum coming off not just yesterdays round but also a low round on Friday too... Absolutely fearless competitor and won me a lump when he took down Furyk from a few back in The Bridgestone a few years back. Just get the feeling Adam has everything to lose here and Keegan will feel like he is freerolling having been 8 shots back after 2 rounds to be in the final group just 3 back he will be buzzing, whereas you feel Adam will be thinking "Am I going to blow a 7 shot lead?"
I feel all the pressure is on Adam and Keegan is the last person he wants breathing down his neck in the same grouping as him. I really feel Keegan's "true" chances of winning this are better than 1 in 4 so 7.6 is an awesome price imo.
I also backed Kokrak after round 1 at 50/1 and Holmes at 180/1 so I have a £1.95k green on Kokrak and £10.05k green on Holmes (but he's out of it) too...

I lost a load on Fowler this week so my book is this;

Keegan +£1786
Kokrak +£736
Holmes +£8836
Field -£1214


I'm really hoping Keegan can get me out of a nasty hole I have dug for myself this week :)
Report Quincy March 23, 2014 5:31 PM GMT
TMMIDWI, Kokrak looks like better value to me, 1 behind Keegan, three times the price. How you get out of yours mystifies me. If Keegan goes to to about 6/4, I'd be a layer.
