Back Home!

Finally moved back into my house at the weekend after 5 months living with the in-laws while my house was effectively rebuilt. Whilst it was great to be able to move away from the dust and dirt it certainly feels good to be back home and as one of my friends rather wonderfully expressed it “every man needs to be able to sit in his pants on his own sofa and scratch his bollocks without his mother in law walking in” . Nice ! On a a more serious note its great to be able to get a proper office set up again which (IMO) is an absolute must if […]

Mastered

First off fair play to Adam Scott for winning the Masters at the weekend, after what happened in the British open a very popular winner . After he birdied the 18th he probably thought he had won it so to then go back out there and do it all again in a great play off took some balls. A superb tournament with plenty of controversy about slow play and also “Tiger gate” . For me the slow play is a the main issue  here as its killing golf everywhere and as a part time hacker it infuriates me when you get people taking ages over every shot, the criticism here […]

Shameless self congratulation

When what seems to have been an age ago I wrote this September 20th, 2010 Betting blogger Edit So this is the first of what I hope will be hope will be many posts and I’m all too aware that the average life of a blog is about 60 days. At that point apparently people get fed up with posting and the regularity of the posts becomes less frequent. I never thought I would still be posting 2 and half years later. I certainly didn’t think that I would be able to take a screen print of the page view tracker that’s at the bottom of the blog ( know […]

Moore Amazing Grace.

Sun Pun writers beware I’m back! Couldn’t help that one as a sensational weekend for the Racing Post tipster Steve Palmer. Here’s the list: Alfred Dunhill Links Branden Grace – 1pt e/w 50/1 –Winner Thorbjorn Olsen 1pt e/w 45/1 -2nd place Danny Willett 1pt e/w 50/1- 6th place (Stan James paid out on this so glad I took a bit of time to hunt this down) Two other picks total loss on those 3.5 pts e/w. Justin Timberlake Shriners Open Ryan Moore  3pts e/w 14/1 Winner Jason Day 1.5 pts e/w 25/1 – 4th place Scott Piercy was selected and finished 6th but I didn’t  spot any bookies offering this […]

Oh well…..

……Sometimes you just know its just not your weekend. The hotly anticipated golf double of Lee Westwood and  Tiger Woods didn’t so much crash and burn, it failed to get off the runway! Woods missed the cut and Westwood recovered from a shocking start to put himself right back in contention only to somehow slip and hurt his knee and groin at the start of the third round which meant he started that round 6 over after 6 holes. It wasn’t only the double that wasn’t landed but 4 and 5 point bets were recommend so not  the best ever performance from the normally very reliable Steve Palmer from the […]

75k worth of pants

Pants. The ones pictures aren’t mine as they are hanging on my office wall at home but perhaps I should  get them down and start wearing them more often as this week has certainly been one of those weeks. In fact its been, well, pants really. The market examiner is on a bit of a losing run at the moment (21) which has been peppered with near misses- their luck at the moment is best summed up by the selection yesterday (Drummers Drumming) going to 1.07 in running. I had laid it low to lock in some profit but when it goes off at 12/1 its hard to bear. Its […]

Loser

“In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey“. Beck. Loser.  Great song and just about sums up the last couple of weeks where it has felt that everything that I’ve touched has turned to whatever the polar opposite of gold is. Its easy to post up when your winning all the time and it might look like I’ve been sulking at home afraid to share my pain  with the world (ok perhaps a little bit)  but the reality is that I haven’t really had anything that interesting to say, I was away working last week  and the Hugh Taylor interview seemed to be quite popular judging by the number […]

Golf – (and another free book giveaway!)

I’ve not  written about golf a for a bit and with the end of the season approaching (does it really end though?) I thought I would try and work out which tipster has worked out better for me. Regular readers will know that over the year I have followed the selections in both the Racing and Football outlook (RFO) and the Racing Post (RP) but my record keeping has let me down and,although I’ve been very thorough in collating the numbers  in so far as overall results are concerned- when it has come down to the actual detail of which service has done what I’ve not got it.  I’ve tried […]

Ladbrokes Serging ahead

Well what a weekend that was ! Fair-play to Sergio Garcia with an absolutely emphatic win at the weekend and one that was confidently predicted by the guys at the RFO (or was it the Racing Post?). Sergio has had a tough couple of years and plummeted down the rankings but the signs have been there for a while and when his putter is as hot as it was at the weekend he really is a force to be reckoned with. He was quite short odds for the tournament considering he had learnt to play golf there and had apparently won the club championship at the age of 12!! So […]

Angels

Regular readers of the blog will have noticed that I have eased off the golf betting at the weekend recently  and that’s  mainly as I’m not comfortable with the the progressive cut system that is the the Fedex cup along with the fact that I’ve been about on Sundays and don’t like to not be able to trade out of possible  winning/losing  positions (probably much to Steve Palmers disgust!). I did however manage to catch some of the Solheim cup on sky on Sunday and found myself strangely engrossed in what was a great battle that went right to the wire. Mrs Blogger is normally subjected to a barrage of […]
