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...

Golf: USOPEN

    The US Open preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy    The second major, and Milky Phil’s latest chance to complete the grand slam, heads to Sinnecock Hills, Long Island, New York. Milky, the Jimmy White of the US Open with his six runners up finishes, comes into this event steaming on sentimentality and with...

It's the largest guaranteed PGA game in PlayON's history, with the largest payout zone to date. Pick a team and win your share. We have entered this team.  Think you can beat...

Golf: The Fed Ex St Jude Classic

The Fed Ex St Jude Classic preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy    Any event that precedes a major is to my mind something of a distraction. We have the US Open pre qualifiers this week and then there are those who will want to hone their games ahead of Shinnecock. Then there is...

Golf: The Memorial

The Memorial preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   Just two weeks before the US Open and a host of the worlds best gather for Jack’s event, The Memorial. Created by the man himself in 1976 in his own state of Ohio this is a seriously north American event. Nicklaus won this twice and...

Golf: Fort Worth Invitational

The Colonial preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   Words of wisdom uttered here:   “Patrick has come back into form and hits the much-desired draw (Kaymer ruined his game in the quest) and yet for ball flight I can’t have him.”   The perils of prediction perfectly illustrated in a single sentence about, our man, my buddy...

Golf: The Players Championship

  by @betdetective     We got a full place payout on our $51 each way bet on Bryson DeChambeau at the Wells Fargo last week so we are confident heading into the Players Championship this week which sees 144 of the best players in world golf including all of the world's top 50...

PGA Tour: Wells Fargo Championship

We are back on the PGA Tour winner hunt at a Quail Hollow course that has seen some design changes since the PGA Championship was held their in 2017 when Justin Thomas won his first Major.     Here's what Rory McIlroy said about the course:    "The changes are good. It definitely makes the...

The Masters – Outright Picks

    The Masters preview with Skeeter McGillicuddy   While it feels like the beginning on the season proper for golf fans it is in fact the halfway point of the PGA Tour season. As such the contenders have had plenty of prep time and as is often the case many of those at...
