WGC Championships Mexico

      The WGC Championships Mexico preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy     There’s a fella outside my local Co-Op who habitually approaches anyone daring to enter with “any spare change”. I always thought he bore a striking resemblance to Kuch. The Genesis Open nearly saw us collecting with Rory’s late charge but the real stories...

The Genesis Open

The Genesis Open preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy     The last leg of the mini West Coast swing is completed this week at Riviera CC or Hogan’s Alley  – another legendary venue on the PGA Tour and an old style one to boot. Slammin Sammy, Byron and the original Bryson, Ben Hogan, and...

Golf: World Super 6 Perth

  by @betdetective   Following on from the mixed event in Victoria last week we have the World Super 6 from Perth which features two cuts at 36 and 54 holes then a 6 hole head to head match play format to find the winner.   The match play element makes this a bit of...

The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am

    The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy Pebble Beach will play host to two events on the PGA Tour this season starting here with the AT&T Pro Am and then the US Open in June – forming as it will the third of the year's majors with the...

Handa Vic Open

  By @betdetective     The European Tour comes to Australia this week in the form of the Vic Open at 13th Beach Golf Links, Barwon Heads, Victoria. It's a 6,795 yard par 72 on the Beach course and 6,940 yard par 72 on the Creek course.     A two course event is not something we...

The Waste Management Phoenix Open

  The Waste Management Phoenix Open preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy The PGA Tour’s equivalent of the WWF this week is the Waste Management Phoenix Open (surely the sexiest sponsorship in golf) where it will get rowdy (Roddy Piper). While the faux shenanigans surrounding the 16th tee are uniquely American and well documented  -...

Golf: Saudi International

  by @betdetective       Skeeter has the Phoenix Open covered on the PGA Tour so I've taken a good look at the Saudi International on the European Tour this week.    We are all guessing a little bit with this being the first event at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club but it's in the...

Golf: The Farmers Insurance Open

    The Farmers Insurance Open preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy First stop for us this new-year in the never-ending quest for winners is the Famers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines. Tiger tees it up at a course he has a pretty reasonable record at with seven wins in 17 attempts at this event,...

Australian PGA Championship

  by @betdetective I'm still shaking my head after going for Aniban Lahiri over Abraham Ancer in the Aussie Open when Ancer ticked every box in the stats i was looking at. Oh well.    The  Australian PGA Championship is once again from  RACV Royal Pines Resort on the Gold Coast in Queensland.   Royal Pines is...

Australian Open Golf

  By @betdetective   The Australian Open returns to The Lakes Golf Club, NSW, for the first time since 2012 and a brief glance at previous winners at The Lakes is all you need to know about what type of test we are looking at.   2012 -  Peter Senior 2011 -  Greg Chalmers   Peter Senior and Greg...

Golf: The Mayakoba Golf Classic

    The Mayakoba Golf Classic preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy     Next stop Mexico for the Tour for the Mayakoba Golf Classic where Patton Kizzire defends his first tour title. Kizzire won for us last year when we’d backed up on him after a near miss, to an extent vindicating the stable approach to...

Golf: The Shriners

  The Shriners Hospital for Children preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy     The US PGA Tour heads back to the mainland this week for some dry Vegas heat as opposed to some seriously sweaty conditions in the early part of the three leg Asian swing. The WGC looked a step too far for me for...

Golf: The Ryder Cup

  by @betdetective   It's hard to recall a more eagerly awaited Ryder Cup than the one that starts this Friday at Le Golf National in, as the name suggests, France.   It is a rare occurrence that the Ryder Cup is played outside of the USA or UK but the superior record of team...

Golf: The 2018 Tour Championship

    The 2018 Tour Championship preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy     To Atlanta and Eastlake for the Tour Championship Final. Who’ll win the Fed Ex Cup and the $10m? It’s all a little vulgar to be frank and yet it could be transformed if the winner just gave it all away. Would I? Would...

Golf: The BWM Championship

      The 2018 BWM Championship preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   This Bryson fellow is starting to annoy me with his same length clubs and his Hoganesque look – and his winning – again. At 35/1 there is no way we were on Bryson at the Dell Tech and while he won we had...

Golf: The Dell Technologies Championship

The 2018 Dell Tech Championship preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy       Bryson!!!!!! So close and yet so on holiday. Your correspondent decided to leave the Northern Trust out of the equation while sunning his sorry butt in Sicily – and of course he only trotted up. Worse Keegan Bradley would also have been...

The 2018 PGA Championship

The 2018 PGA Championship Invitational preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy     So close, so Rory. Astonishing to believe he could get it so out of sorts on Sunday at the WGC applying little to no pressure to Thomas. He’s human and golf is inherently difficult but I wonder if even Thomas would like...

WGC Bridgestone Invitational

    The 2018 WGC Bridgestone Invitational preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   Firestone, Akron, Ohio, Jack country…the best. These words are truly evocative to a certain generation raised on the PGA Tour from afar in a time when you had to read about results in a newspaper. So steeped in history is this event,...

The Open Championship

    The 2018 Open Championship preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy       Can the 147th Open beat the 146th for late drama? Spieths’ get out of gaol bogey, when off the scale wide on 13 prefaced a run with the putter that broke Kuch’s heart. Carnoustie is a beast of a course and will be...

Open Championship – Back to Lay

  by @betdetective     Skeeter's Open Championship preview and tips will be up tomorrow but in the meantime here are Bet Detective's long shots which he's suggesting to back on Betfair with the plan of laying at least one of them back at a much shorter price.       The 147th Open Championship starts on Thursday...
