BMW PGA Championship - Wentworth - Alternatives to Rory
by Ralfie1982 on 18 May at 23:31
BMW PGA Championship The Course PAR 72 Tree bloody everywhere so i suspect winner will come from someone who has good driving accuracy The weather is expected to play its part. We have expected rain coming on the Wednesday for most of the day so I imagine the greens will be a touch challenging and looking at the early forcast for later in the week, we can expect some rain each day so I think the surface will change each day. The wind that is also around is expected to drop away over the coming days making it good for the purists amongst us. The Stats 5m (euro) total purse Heavily dominated by the Scots. Since 1998 they have had 5 winners and 5 runners up Held here since 1984 Faldo is the..
Football League Play-Off Finals Weekend - May 23rd to 25th
by tbuckley on 18 May at 02:15
Football League Play-Off Finals Weekend - May 23rd to 25th The Football League Season started way back on Saturday 9th August 2014 and the 72 teams which form the football league all set out knowing they faced 46 intense, competitive league games spread over 10 months to give everything, to fight for their lives and to fight for success. That intensely demanding 10 month period came to an end for all 72 league teams on May 2nd and for 60 of those teams that was that, the season was finished and it was time to reflect, to rest and get ready for the next new season. However for 12 of those teams, the 4 who finished 3rd to 6th in the Championship, the teams who finished 3rd to 6th in League 1 and and the 4 teams who finished 4th to 7th..
Football League Play-Off Finals Preview

Wembley Awaits The hard work began way back in the July 2014 pre-season for the whole of the Football League but for 6 sides it is only just finishing. The Play-Off Finals are a culmination of 48 gruelling games of football and in the end it’s all or nothing. Win at Wembley this weekend and the season was a success, lose and it’s back to the drawing board with a good season simply confined to the record books. It's so far so good for my Play-Offs predictions and tips from my earlier blog; HERE with Wycombe winning at 12/5 away at Plymouth's Home Park and Middlesbrough keeping a clean sheet at the Riverside against Brentford. I tipped Wycombe Wanderers, Swindon Town and Norwich City for Play-Off glory and all 3 have made it to the finals in a bid to land me..
BMW PGA Championship Preview

Jimenez to Jig his Way Around Wentworth The European Tour has its flagship event this week with the BMW PGA Championship from Wentworth. Going for the double double this week will be Rory McIlroy who won last week at Quail Hollow in the US and also defends the title he won here last year. Funnily enough the tee-off times are the same as the UK and are at 7am on the 21st May. Unusual for modern events as well everyone will tee off from the first hole rather than the modern trend of splitting the field with the 10th tee. The Course & Past Winners The West course at Wentworth has been used since 1984 for this event and was also the previous host of the World Matchplay Championship although that ceased in 2007. However there were some major changes..
Confirmation Bias - Rules Of Thumb
by garethp1981 on 19 May at 20:27
Hopefully this is entirely unnecessary but let me start out by saying I am not advocating murder; the darlings referred to in what I say next are a metaphor for pet theories, whether they are about football, racing, the X Factor or whatever event you choose to bet on. That said here goes, I think you should murder your darlings; various great writers are quoted as having used the same phrase when talking about the secret of good writing. The idea is that if a writer themselves particularly likes a certain part of what they have written, they should probably take it out as it is likely to be self-indulgent and to subtract from others’ enjoyment of the work. In terms of betting I am not saying that all pet theories are wrong or that those who bet on that..
Crown Plaza Invitational.
by Ralfie1982 on 19 May at 00:15
Cown Plaza Invitational The Course PAR 70 There are 2 more PAR 3's than usual hence the PAR 70 not 72 The course highlight is the 13th Hole. It involves alot of water and not a lot of Green to aim at.... go take a look. Also worth a little look at hole 9 and 16. These other two could be the ones to focus on in the last round get over these in tact and your looking in good shape. The Stats $6.5m total purse with the winner taking the $1.17m and 500 fedex points to boot Heavily dominated by the Americans winning 56 out of 69 events There are two double winners Zach Johnson (playing this year) and Phil Mick Smaller field - being an invitational we have 123 rather than 156 entrants Zach Johnson..
Newcastle United v West Ham United
by redhammer on 18 May at 22:24
Newcastle United v West Ham United LAST GAME OF THE SEASON-LIVE ON SKY SPORTS 24-05-2015. 15.00. St James Park. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out The Game West Ham 1-2 Everton The first half was a bit bland for the journalists with little goal mouth action but the talking point came when Coleman blocked Cresswells cross with his arm but the penalty claim was waved away. An early yellow card for Reid put Everton 1 up on the journey for Fair Play but McCarthy and Coleman put the Hammers 2-1 up. HT 0-0 The game kicked into life a little in the second half as both sides started to attack more without hitting top gear. On the 62nd minute a nice 1-2 with Song and Downing saw the latter curl it past Howard and put the Irons 1 up. 5 minutes later though and Leon Osmas made..
