Here's a rundown ten tournaments in:

10 Tournaments
76 Selections

Wins: 1 (@ 70)
Placed 2nd-5th (inc. ties): 7
Placed 6th-10th (inc. ties): 6

P+L to level stakes: -6

One or two hard luck stories but got to keep my selection process "as is".
Certainly been the craziest season I can remember for a long time.
This week's result has certainly pulled it round for me. On to the next one...Happy

H English 46
R Henley 55
M McNealy 70
A Putnam 120
A Baddeley 300
B Silverman 370

If his aches and pains hold off, Matsuyama could go well and
I also like Harris English. Putnam's his usual big price but needs to
play well for at least three rounds out of four instead of his usual two!
Mav McNealy could be a little over-priced, and Baddeley definitely is!
(Shame he struggles to put consistent rounds together these days)

good shout on homa...no birdies yesterday but only one bogey. 2 birdies and just 2 bogeys in the last 36 holes leads me to believe he's playing the best golf and holing one or two putts could be the difference. that's who i'd be backing at 9.2. think scheffler has it(so many bogeys and doubles yet he's still winning) but i'd much rather have a small bet on homa rather than someone at odds on

unlucky with aberg. we can forgive him for not winning with it being his first major. think scheffler is now a must back to cover stakes on all outright bets. that's 3 out of his last 4 events he's won and he almost won the other too. got my stake back this week by backing him and going forward it will be a mandatory bet for me.

nobody seems to have that killer instinct to get a win when he's near the leaderboard - and the scary thing is he's not even playing anywhere near 100% yet.

It will be interesting to see if he has longevity. His swing requires tremendous co-ordination that tends to fade with age, but his short game might cover for that, as it did for almost all his mistakes last week.
