by The rabbit on 18 Jan at 16:27
Phil Mickelson is competing in his first PGA tournament of 2015 when he plays this week in the Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation which takes place in La Quinta, California, USA. This tournament used to be called the Bob Hope Classic and before 2012 it took place over five days with the players competing on four different courses but from 2012 it was altered to being over four days with three courses being used and the course that is no longer being used is the SilverRock Resort one which was quite long at 7403 yards. This is a pro-am tournament with the cut being made after the third round has been completed and the final round on the Sunday will be for the professional players only.

Racing at Meydan January 22nd, The Dubai World Cup Carnival continues

Racing at Meydan January 22nd, The Dubai World Cup Carnival continues I've said many times before in my blogs on here how I love the high quality, ultra-competitive racing at Meydan and the levels of quality and competitiveness really go up several levels once the Dubai World Cup carnival racing season starts. Well the Dubai World Cup Carnival racing season started on the 8th of January at Meydan and it provided 7 high quality, hugely fascinating races and proved to be a fantastic appetiser for what lies ahead at Meydan over the coming weeks. The 2nd week of the Dubai World Cup Carnival season took place last week on the 15th and again there were many top class performances and ultra-competitive races to enjoy, a review of those races from last week is included in the blog with the full results. As the..

Manchester United to pass Cambridge F.A. Cup Exam

Manchester United to pass Cambridge F.A. Cup Exam Hello there fellow OLBG bloggers, members and users, I really hoped you enjoyed and benefitted from my blog on the QPR vs Manchester United game last week, my prediction was for a comfortable Manchester United win, the statistics I posted strongly suggested a Manchester United win and thankfully that's how it turned out. I won't go into full detail explaining my allegiance to Manchester United again as I did that last week in the QPR match blog, but suffice to say I've followed them since I was 8 years old, that's 30 years being a Red Devil, and I'm a former season ticket holder who went all the country watching Manchester United home and away. With these series of blogs on Manchester United, I'm aiming to combine my passion, knowledge and views on Machester..
How Competitive is The Horse Race?
by nors on 21 Jan at 21:34
When it comes to either backing or laying horses one area that is often ignored or at least not factored in is the competitiveness of the race. This competitiveness I feel is key to successful betting, when you choose a horse that you like do you consider the race it is in? Just because you have followed it, or it ran well last time, or the trainer and jockey have a great strike rate when teaming up means nothing unless you first consider its opposition. In handicaps horses are rated by their ability, with the highest rated given the highest weight to carry. Handicaps are restricted to horses with ratings in a particular range, the weight it carries is decided by its rating and what class of race it is in. On most weekdays with say 3 meetings there would..

Commercial Bank Qatar Masters Preview
by jimmywomble on 20 Jan at 21:41
Grace too Hot to Handle in Qatar The second week of the Desert Swing sees the European Tour head to Qatar and the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters from the Doha GC. It started a few years before last week’s Abu Dhabi Championship and so this will be the 18th time event has been held and winner last year was Sergio Garcia who beat Mikko Ilonen in a playoff. Qatar is 3 hours ahead of UK time and so an early start at am, but more importantly the event starts a day early and so is from Wednesday 21st January 2015, until Saturday. And of course it’s played at the right time of year, rather than in the height of summer where it would be stupid to make the guys walk around a golf course, let alone say,..
