2nd major of the year lads, in what is usually one of the toughest ones of the four, due to the penal rough, which is a normal set up for a US open course. No real course form to go on as it is 1981 since the open has been played here. A hurricane swept through the area last week and although accuracy of the tee is still important, with the soft greens the bombers might just get away with it, bearing in mind it is a relatively short par 70 course in relation to most weeks on the PGA tour, my guess is scrambling and putting might just be the more important for this weeks event.

Anyways, having said all that first pick for me is mr straight, J Rose, who's achilles heel is normally his putting! Just hoping the flat stick behaves for him & if it does really can't see him being too far away come sunday.

Next up is a man who should have one at least one major by now, Dustin Johnson. Back from injury this year he has already got a victory to his name in his first start and last week was very encouraging with a t10. Very long off the tee, as long as he isn't too wild & gung ho, great mid/short iron player and streaky putter when on song, hopefully he can give a good account.

Another man who was very encouraging last week, also t10 and always seems to bring his best to the major table is our old friend, love him or loathe him, Padraig. Putting improved dramatically last week and I just feel this par 70 set up will suit him as well, & at the prices well worth the punt in my book & for those of a nervous dispisition, hopefully you will be able to trade your stake back at some stage during the proceedings as backing Pod is not for those that are faint hearted.

Adam Scott is getting a few bob of mine also.

Justin Rose 28/1 ew
Dustin Johnson 50's W&PL B/Fair
Padraig 110's W & Pl B/Fair
Adam Scott 26's Win B/Fair

GL all.

With the prospect of about 73 players for weekend, will they still go with one tee?? Prob get third round underway about 3.30 pm. If only one tee, be about 9.30 our time getting the last group out, assuming two balls. That be cutting it very fine for getting leaders full rounds in. Any history of them playing 3 balls over the weekend in this event??

I have a weird way of betting on golf in that I lay the bottlers when they are short.

I have laid both bottlers and players that I thought were too short at the time
Harrington
Mickelson
McIlroy
Rose
Sendon
Donald
All still in contention and Scott who is gone.

As said earlier Usopen.com is i think a bit faster than the "ATR" of golf, sky, more so for the first two rounds but still giving a score faster in some cases,haven,t a radio link but nearly sure there would be one. Careful with i/r. on sky.

Report wildmanfromborneo June 15, 2013 10:05 PM BST
Thanks Pa Lapsy.

One thing I have noticed is the market way over reacts to a birdie putt,the player generally shortens way too much immediately and then slowly goes out again.

If you want to lay a player lining up a birdie putt stick your lay a point or two under his price if he holes the putt it will be matched.

Report callitasucit June 16, 2013 1:40 AM BST
Disappointed with Mahans finish, more so the 17th, 18th is fuc*in impossible!! Phil hit two lovely shots, like Tiger on Thursday, and made bogey. Hopefully Hunter can give me a run at it tomorrow. Stenson backed out of it, having seemed set to contend. Will have afew quid on Strick at 8.6. Phil will put himself under huge pressure to win his first Open. Rose wont win. I doubt Luke will. Both balls related, or lack of. Billy wont win. I dont like Charl! Day a bottler. Leaves Strick and Mahan. I dont think Hunter is blessed with the greatest set either, but will hit more fairways than most, and that will count for plenty tomorrow. Strick, like Phil, will be desperate for it, but may just find a way to sink a few more putts, and keep his emotions in check that bit better. GL.

I,ve some knack lately for putting the pure kiss of death on a golfer,Kim + 4 for last 3 holes.
Looks as if it is between the first 9 players and they all look a much of a muchness to me.Went on Schwartzel and Donald  to try and rescue something out of a poor tourny for me.
Bad an all with the betting,really enjoyed the course,the USPGA have come up trumps again in delivering a true test of golf.
Shame it looks like the last time it will be played here though can understand it with the logistics. Couldn,t believe how small/compact the course is(111 sq either acres or hectacres) nearly every other course is at least 3 times the size and Sawgrass nearly 4 times.

Brilliant course despite not being links .  The member largely responsible for the initial design went to Scotland and England to suss out their courses , hence why it fits my eye , and why I should have joined in the fairly big interest in Padraig  pre kick off, it would have suited his eye .  And planty of time to trade out of him early last night .  Gone now though , along with Rory .

My interest is still with Luke , unbelievable price for him before they kicked off , 52 on the purple one .  Traded out too early though , at 16 I think on the first day . Still think he looks like he might win it , swinging smoothly .

Thought the shorter straighter hitters would come out on top , but Luke eventually was not sharp enough for the full 72 rounds , and Phil and Justin aren't exactly short straight men .
