Shriners Hospitals for Childrens Open - Review
by hornygoat on 20 Oct at 12:48
Overview Reasons to be cheerful, part 1, 2, 3. Despite no monetary return this week, I am chanting the great Ian Dury’s mantra as there is plenty to be optimistic about. Ben Martin scored another one for the maidens on Tour by taking advantage of the late scoring opportunities at TPC Summerlin and triumph by a couple of shots over the fast finishing Kevin Streelman. It was all looking rather shaky for the 27 year old after 14 holes on his final round, but a timely birdie was followed by an eagle and that was that. Russell Knox was in a great position on a Sunday once again, but a poor opening 9 holes effectively cost him his challenge despite recovering strongly to finish 3rd. Defending champ Webb Simpson, resilient Jimmy Walker and the ever impressive Brooks Koepka filled out the money..

by The rabbit on 19 Oct at 15:48
Matt Kuchar will be competing on the PGA tour this week when he competes in the McGladrey Classic from the 23rd October until the 26th October 2014. This tournament was first staged in 2010 and it is hosted by Davis Love III and it is part of the FedExCup schedule and the winner will obtain 500 points. The Seaside course at Sea Island in Georgia has been the venue since 2010 and the past four champions of this tournament with their final scores are - 2013 Chris Kirk - 14 2012 Tommy Gainey - 16 2011 Ben Crane - 15 2010 Heath Slocum - 14 The Course The Seaside course is a par 70 of just over 7000 yards with two par 5's and four par 3's and is not surprisingly by the coast so wind can be a factor here. The course is on..
Champions League Gameweek 3 - Liverpool vs Real Madrid
by ibfm23 on 21 Oct at 06:25
Liverpool host Real Madrid on Wednesday night in a clash between two of the most decorated clubs in Europe who are (unfortunately for Liverpool fans) living different realities. The Galacticos are on a 7 match winning streak in all competitions with a whopping 32 goals scored and just 5 conceded. The Reds returned from Loftus Road with all 3 points, however, it is crystal clear that the current squad composition is not geared up to compete for silverware. The bookies are giving Liverpool very slim chances with the WDL priced at 4.75, 4 and 1.85 respectively. Whilst the diehard fan in me always believes (or rather hopes) that the next match will turnaround the season, the rational me does not look beyond a Real Madrid win. This notwithstanding it is not unusual for Liverpool to turn up on big occasions (what..

Why UEFA need to act on the minnows
by undertherobe on 18 Oct at 09:57
I like football at all levels and will always try and watch as much as possible from around the world. International football? Well, not so much. I watched the opening minutes of the England vs San Marino game last week and then thought, what’s the point? England are clearly going to win whether it’s 1-0 or 8-0 and there is absolutely nothing a team like England can learn against countries such as San Marino and surely it’s now time for UEFA to act. I do like the fact that both FIFA, UEFA and the remaining football confederations ensure that all countries, no matter how weak, have the chance to qualify for the major tournaments but the European qualifying event is ridiculous in that it brings together all 54 countries into one big event. We have clear minnow such as Malta, Liechtenstein,..
