DJ - Forgive last week or not. That's the main question for this as normally in a field this poor and with a win on his second to last start, he would not be in the same postcode as a double digit price yet after last week we're getting 12-13s about him.

If he turns up he wins so I'm back for more punishment.

Looking forward to this in a way, big name fatigue setting in in a way, sometimes a lesser field like this can prove just as intriguing. It's a difficult one for betting though when you see guys like Straka or Merrit you've been having a flyer on in the mid-hundreds suddenly trading in double digits. Even if the prices make sense in the context of the field it's psychologically difficult to trust guys who are so much less consistent- the one thing that hasn't changed is that someone is still going to have to play very well to win this as with any week.  Combine that with the big names all having big question marks and it's difficult to find much of a trustworthy bet.

Did manage to grab Sloan at 1000 on Monday which was clearly incorrect in this level of field, he and Wilkinson also 1000 my only plays. You need to be pretty damn bad to be 1000 in this field, and those two at least know one end of the club from the other.

ha fair play to him

Just looking, on here words like "bottler" "gutless" are bandied about like confetti but TONY FINAU'S case they really are true aren't they!?!

So much talent but only one win 4 years ago and that he tried his very best to chuck it shooting 3 over the back 9 on the last day to scrape it in a playoff.

it's a little sad really, mind the market doesn't seem to care, they love him!
Report Total Bosman July 25, 2020 4:20 PM BST
I'm not a big fan of the word bottler because I think in a sport like golf nerves and adrenaline affect everyone (except maybe Tiger), plus it's just hard to win and guys who are frequently in contention like JT can be called a bottler every time they don't win rather than praised for how often they get in contention.

But in Tony's case it's hard to build a case for the defence - more than possibly any golfer I can remember he's a completely different guy when the pressure's on to the world class player he is when the pressure's off. We're all waiting for the week he shakes that but at the moment the evidence is not in his favour.
Report Total Bosman July 25, 2020 4:24 PM BST

I only have Richy on my side, barring a miracle from Woolf or Xhang.  Probably most scared of Homa, but several of the group on -11 can shoot 64, and that (-18) might be good enough.
