At least those mentioning their selections had the belief in their judgement to have a fuc*in bet RR. The one thing I can say in your favour is that you obviously realise you are a half wit, and hence didn't bother investing in your opinion, or yellow fuc*in boxes for that matter!! When you do back your judgement, and make it pay, then feel free to come on her saying 'I told you so'. Though I have always been of the opinion that self praise is no praise, so maybe you're better off just fuc*ing off altogether.
Kavvie, I would make the spread on his age 20-23. Though in saying that, for his sake I would hope he is younger, some chance of improvement!!

Very popular winner , most popular player in USA for last 20 years , way ahead of Tiger in regard to public perception  , if not on the scoreboard . Lost a couple of years recently reference his wifes illness , golf is a game thats hard to play your best if your mind is elswhere .

Always have rated Phil as among the 3 best ( maybe only) USA players in international terms , accompanied by Tiger and Jim Furyk , the rest have largely stayed at home and concentrated solely on domestic golf . For last number of years he has been regularly my biggest winner on the Open ( but not this year ), always a good price even when he was playing well , guess his record did not match his ability in UK . He was 40/1 for a lot of the year , tightened down recently , and there was a big plunge on him in the last 24 hours before kick off , came in from 20 to 17.5 , someone did well .

If we had followed the money only , we would all have lit on him !

He was 24's  Kelly after Scottish Open, and as you said punted on right down to 17.5 pre off, of the top 5, he was best backed and had arounabout 350k matched at that point, possibly only Tiger had more on him at that point. I believe.  Co Mayo for me for a few days break.

Fair play Deplasterer,always nice to see the thread starter pick the winner,have a good break tis deserved.
Couldn,t begrudge Phil at all,lovely demeanor in the man,in contrast Woods gobbing all over the place particulary after a bad shot,Lee John will never have a better chance and again blew it.
Crowd seemed almost non existent at Muirfield,emptyish grandstands and thought myself the atmosphere was a bit lacking,ticket prices being up nearly 50% on Royal St.George and location may have something to do with that.
Normally would only have praise for bbc coverage but between Allis's gaffes,the cameramen not having a clue where the ball went and scores coming up on the leaderboard before the shot was shown 'live', was a bit disappointed with it.

Well done Dep and all winners.

It's not a very telgenic course is it.  All holes appeared the same, feature-less if you will.

Its a links.

Well done Deplasterer who has form in this regard,won the Peter Dobereiner award last year.

The golf gamblers have put us racing men to shame with their consistent winning and at huge prices too.

Are all Links courses unattractive by definition?  I wouldn't have thought so.

They have a natural beauty Ozy , unlike your parkland courses which are designed , Links courses are gifts from mother nature...

Links courses vary a lot depending on location and proximity to the sea .  Dont think any holes at Muirfield are directly adjacent to the strand , possibly not surprising given that original site for Muirfield is now in the middle of Musselburgh race course .

Its a cracking course though , Colt design  mainly, although not sure Harry's bunkers have kept their original shape and make . Reckon you would need 3D to do most links courses justice , and to appreciate the difficulty encountered in playing the course .

Luckily most of our Irish links courses do run down to the sea/ strand at various points , first 4 holes at Newcastle run straight out parallel to the strand , landed quite a few balls on the beach myself (on windy days in my defence as I hit the ball pretty straight ) through the years . Found a brand new ball myself there circa 1947 when digging in the sand as a toddler . Much prized in those days , Dunlop 65's were about 3 shillings ( 15p) each then , same price as a gallon of petrol and a pack of cigarettes . Relatively speaking golf balls are about a quarter of the price now as then .

If you look at the finishing positions , unlike in a lot of other tournaments there are only very good and decent golfers at the top , thats my measure of a good course , the best finish where they belong normally , the lesser golfers fade . As for those missing cut etc , less said about them the better .  Phil joins a stellar list of past Muirfield champions , delighted for him .

Cracking finish from Phil. No good to me, but delighted for him, absolute gent. Tiger once again flopped in no uncertain fashion. Become worrying for the great man. His demeanour seemed totally different yesterday from the moment he stepped out. He needs to win one soon, or the previously unthinkable might happen.....no more major wins. Westwood does what westwood does best, flatters to deceive. Pure bottler. Yesterdays performance from Scott makes it hard to believe how he got it done at Augusta. Surely he should have found it easier to hold it together having got the Major monkey off his back?? Very poor from the moment he hit the front. Dusty Johnson again went missing when it counted too, I just don't think he has enough between the ears to win a major. Well done Deplasterer, spend it wisely, keep a few bob aside for a few Ballybrit beauties next weekGrin
