New name, new course. Love the event, New York crowds are always buzzing and the courses are generally excellent. Some interesting prices about, the layers are giving Spieth a worse chance here than at Quail Hollow which seems altogether wrong to me. Rarely back him but 15.5 seems a fair shout.

It is a superb course Ridgewood. Lots of birdies and lots of bogeys, should be an in-play traders delight. Really hard at the top, don't necessarily favour any of them and having a good hard look at the plodders at big odds. Someone who keeps it in play and can scramble is the formula based on events past. Kevin Na at 200 and above an automatic selection.

Found my pick of the market leaders and it is the market leader. Poa annua greens = DJ.
Report Total Bosman August 21, 2018 4:02 PM BST
The poa angle is definitely important, some love it, some hate it.  Definitely one for the guys who perform out west (Torrey, Pebble, Riv).  DJ stands out a mile but so tough to back the guy at that price when it seems to depend what side of bed he gets out of.  Already had a punt on Bubba, the King of the Riv, seems to depend on the same thing with him but worth a go at the odds.  Few others under consideration, Sneds sadly ruined his price last week but very solid record out west on the poa.

What is Jordan thinking this morning then? Another monster lead blown.Massively reliant on the flat stick.And his continued good fortune.Luck ran out with the steamroller that was DJ, who IMHO could have won the tourney by 6 with a couple of decent putting days!NO losers on here again.LOL


I think he'll be just fine. 24 years old with 3 majors, 11 wins and 50 odd million in the bank. Hardly choked, -1 with a 54 hole lead on a tough course is no disaster. DJ deserved it, great round he played with clutch play at the end. That drive in the playoff was immense.

Jordan is a great putter no doubt, but his short game is sublime and he is second on the whole tour for approach play. Hardly reliant on luck. A winner no doubt, not sure why you are so keen on laying him, hiding to nothing of a strategy imo.


RHINO, The debate still rages in my view, I do not think he has progressed as many on here foreseen. And certainly is not a dominant player as many expected,his record is great,no doubt,but i question still his overall game and happy to continue laying when gets in contention or short....I think he is getting more and more in his own way as the months go bye...

Heavily invested in Tigger. He done amazingly well to get 2nd a couple of weeks ago and here he can put away his driver. He could end up winning by 4 or 5 if he's in the same form.
Report therhino August 23, 2018 10:26 AM BST
Ended up with DJ, insurance on Koepka, Moli, Cantlay, Na, Cink, Si Woo and Putnam. Cink is the big winner, very nice price given his form and the fact the course doesn't require length. 250 on here, bookies taking no chances on him.

Also done Burns on the web.com at 36s which is a sexy price imo.
