WGC Cadillac Championship
by beepee1984 on 04 Mar at 05:38
The Course suited long-hitters and since making it bigger it will benefit the big hitters even more. Recent winners of the WGC Cadillac have shown form in several previous tournaments including the PGA Championship, Humana, Quicken National Links and Wyndham. Before the redesign of the course T Woods won here 7 times, the only tournaments that he has won more is the WTC Bridgestone and Arnold Palmer Invitation. The majority of winners have also already had a top 10 finish. My selection isn't bad of the tee only 14 yards of the Top Driver, has won at the PGA and WGC Bridgestone as well as coming a 2nd in last years Arnold Palmer Invitation. He finished 4th in his penultimate event as well as 2 3rd places earlier in the season in December. Keegan Bradley 50/1..
Super Saturday at Meydan - The Dubai World Cup Carnival continues
by tbuckley on 04 Mar at 01:43
Super Saturday at Meydan - The Dubai World Cup Carnival continues The Emirates Airline-sponsored Super Saturday takes places this Saturday, March 7th, and it is without doubt a truly stunning, stand-out race meeting in its own right and it sits proudly amongst the elite racedays in the global flat racing calendar, the horses running on Saturday will be some of the very best in the world today. There is close to $2 million in prize money on offer spread over the 8 racecard of Super Saturday, a high class card that includes 3 Group 1's, 3 Group 3's, a Group 2 and Listed contest, indeed the Listed contest is the lowest grade race on the night and yet that is worth $175,000. I've seen Super Saturday at Meydan referred to as a 'dress rehearsal' for Dubai..
Unreasonable reasoning - Non-scientific, irrational betting angles
by botev1921 on 01 Mar at 18:33
Over the years I have come across many logical and not so logical reasons to back a certain outcome of a sports event and to be honest, I never take anything lightly as you never know where one could find wisdom. However, I grew up a bit disgusted with certain so-called pundits or specialist in particular sports, who often get extensive coverage due to either experience or simply popularity, but ever so often the things they offer as reasoning for particular bets, are nothing short of moronic. There are countless angles to sports selections, but in my eyes (and I do not want to offend anybody who thinks those make sense) some angles are just one step too far and are simply worthless and even misleading than anything else. Since I have not posted any philosophical blog entries in a..
The Gold Cup Conclusion from the original blog with history
by meoldmate on 01 Mar at 21:34
THE GOLD CUP I have written a blog on the runners for this race with history to go with each runner as they appeared which many people have read and placed a mention at the bottom of the page. You can find this blog by typing http://www.olbg.com/blogs/post.php?id=407857 As the link will not work. At least twenty five horses came to be mentioned for this Blue Ribbon race and now the numbers would have dwindled somewhat to possibly twelve or maybe more. I started out thinking SILVINIACO CONTI would be the key player to this race and at 8/1 in October looked to be the best way to play. He has strengthen up since last season, as his trainer Paul Nicholls has highlighted and has been finishing his races off, as he has shown when winning at Haydock and Kempton. The twice he..
Both Teams To Score IV; Bobslay13
by bobslay13 on 05 Mar at 11:50
Both Teams To Score Part II which is Redhammer's blog can be found HERE Intro We focused on Germany and Italy last week and got burnt! We felt there were goals flying in within those leagues the last 2 weeks so we jumped on the bandwagon last week and fell off straight away. In Scotland, there was something in the water as we got the clean sweep but South of the Border could have done with that something in their water as out of 41 games on Saturday, just 10 saw both sides scoring, and it didn't get much better on Sunday either. This Week We were frustrated at the weekend as upsets occurred such as Fulham keeping a clean sheet against Derby and Benitez' Napoli drawing a blank. This week we have abolished the countries to concentrate on..

Adam Scott will be competing in another World Golf Championship this week and it is the Cadillac Championship which is held at the TPC Blue Monster course at the Doral Golf Resort & Spa Club in Florida from the 5th March - 8th March 2015. The course was redesigned after the 2013 event finished and played much harder last year with the winning score being only - 4.
