Well done Paul, and well done Rory for strongly forcing the issue, lest the wrong call be made.

And how unpopular must Montgomerie be - even fellow Scots Bernard Gallagher, Andrew Coltart and Paul Lawrie came out against him.

It'll be Paul next year, and Dungannon's finest in 2016!

I have it on fairly good authority that the poster known as TC's people hail from the Yeats County and the poster himself maybe be a grand daughter of the Countess hereself ....

was just reading an article on line about McIlroys girlfriend doing caddie for him in the par 3 tournament today before the Masters commences.

According to the author of the article she wont be the first professional tennis player to caddie at the event. it says and i quote 'Chris Evert was on her then husband Greg Norman's bag in 2009.'

I'd say she was on it alright!!!!!

It's weird how many golfers end up dating tennis players. McIlroy and Wozniacki, Norman and Evert, Sergio Garica and Martina Hingis, Hank Kuehne & Venus Williams and Adam Scott & Ana Ivanovic all jump to mind. Plus, there is the likelihood that Tiger's had half a dozen of the top 10 as well.

Is Woods the man to beat or is Rory back in the groove

I gave up betting on golf a long time ago, Boc, as it is just so hard to call. The majors in golf are so tough, as a player must beat 100 other top professionals (as opposed to tennis, for example, where you technically only have to beat 7, one at a time). A bad bounce in golf, or even misfortune with playing in rain/wind at the wrong time of the day, can often be the difference in winning and losing.

Woods is a worthy favourite, but 4-1 is similar to what you'd have got on him 5-6 years ago, and he isn't back to that level yet. I'd stay clear, although he is more likely than any to wear the green jacket on Sunday. McIlroy is at 10-1, and that may be as long as he'll be in any tournament for quite some time to come. He is showing signs of getting back to form, although his game is still littered with mistakes. Despite that, no-one is more capable of exploding into life and, if he gets off to a good start, he could certainly win.

Aside from Tiger, Keegan Bradley and Justin Rose are the 2 in-form golfers. Bradley has the length to play well at Augusta, but he's only played the tournament once before. Rose has made 3 top 10 finishes in the last 6 years, though temperament is always a concern with him.

The usual suspects of Luke Donald, Dustin Johnson, Adam Scott and Louis Oosthuizen must be respected, and it would be no shock to see any of those winning. The latter 3 are long hitters who can be great or awful, while Donald is such a good golfer and has been in contention more than once.

But for me, the value is in Rose (18-1), if he can continue his great form and hold his nerve. If you fancy an outsider, maybe consider one of the 2 big-hitting Swedes, Henrik Stenson (60-1) or Peter Hanson (70-1).

Typing this on the IPAD that Bubba paid for last year.
Akin to TC,s comment above i see no value in chasing favourites. Im not going to bet heavy on Tiger so
The 80 quid back on a 20 punt aint going to make my weekend so far that reason will go
Down the field a bit which if you get an Immelman,Scwartzel,cabrera, bubba at least you have something worth winning

Ton on 3 ew

Oosthuizen(20) mahan(10) and Haas(20)

Speculated €30 on this event by way of 3X€5 e/w punts:

Oosthuizen 28/1...Dustin Johnson 33/1 and crafty oul' Mickleson at 11/1. I'll have a tenner on some other outsider around the 100/1 mark to have me hoping for a place on Sunday evening. I think Els is long odds (125/1) and he isn't one to get flustered.

22 "Guests" looking in at present, doubtless in anticipation of OMAR's tip for Augusta. The Golf thread should be "members only" for the duration of the event....

Bocerty, when he gets a chance, will no doubt effect the requisite adjustment.

That gom Dustbin Johnson had this event in the bag, 2 clear of the field allegedly through 14 and staggered home from there conceding 5 or 6 to par. What a gimp. I'll be blasting off a missive to his agent seeking a refund of my €10 investment....

so Tiger has got away with his 'mistake' from yesterday and hasnt been disqualified. Was wondering was it the power of the big Sponsors who had resulted in the rules being slightly relaxed to keep him on board, especially after the young Guan lads penalty yesterday. Harrington was also disqualified for a similar faux pas not too long ago.

However it seems Tiger has benefited from recent rule change which means you cant be disqualified for something your unaware of or some crap like that.

Gretzky showing why he was known as 'The great One'.

Tiger's offence was more Montgomerie-esque (blatant skullduggery) than Harrington-esque (innocent error). He cheated, admitted it, and was somehow absolved. If it was anyone else they would have been disqualified.
