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..
Simona Halep - Can she win her first Grand Slam ?
by The rabbit on 19 May at 19:42
Simona Halep will be attempting to win her first Grand Slam when she competes in the French Open. Simona is from Romania and has improved considerably in the last two years and won her first WTA title in June 2013. Since then she has won ten other WTA tournaments and is presently ranked at number three in the world. She reached her first Grand Slam final last year when she was the beaten finalist in this tournament. She has won three WTA titles this year and was the beaten semi finalist in her latest event which was in Italy after previously losing in the first round in Madrid. The French Open is the second of the four annual Grand Slams to take place and it is held at Stade Roland Garros in Paris and the surface is clay. It begins on..
LEICESTER v Queens Park Rangers. Premiership May 24th.
by davidg3907 on 22 May at 14:19
RECOGNITION OF JAMIE VARDY'S ENGLAND CALL UP Congratulations to Jamie who has progressed from non league football in 2011/12 with Halifax ( 3 goals in 4 games ) and Fleetwood ( 36 goals in 40 games ) helping Fleetwood take the Conference title with 103 points and promotion to the Football League, to being called up to the England squad at the culmination of what has been a fantastic three years at Leicester. As the first £1m transfer from a Conference club, what a bargain he is proving to be. He was voted Leicester’s Player of the season by his team mates last season. Possibly close to a repeat this season, he was beaten to it by no less than the legendary Esteban Cambiasso and whilst being a bit naïve at Premiership level initially, he has adapted very well. His pace..
The Derby Trends (Early Look)
by Micko70 on 17 May at 13:15
The Derby is the richest race run in Britain and is the highlight of any 3yo's career, the race is run at Epsom racecourse and is run over 1m 4f & 10yds, many horses will be tackling this distance for the very first time. The winner of the 2,000 Guineas would need to run in this race and won if they wanted to achieve the Triple Crown, which culminates in the St Leger later in the season. The Derby has been run since 1780 but wasn't run over 1 mile 4 furlongs until 1784. Workforce holds the record for the quickest derby win in 2010 when winning in a time of 2m 31.33 seconds whilst Shergar in 1981 holds the record winning distance of 10 lengths. I have looked at the last 10 runnings of the race and have looked at the following trends,..
Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial Preview
by jimmywomble on 20 May at 22:34
Casey on The Case at Colonial After six weeks away the PGA Tour is back in Texas for a couple of weeks, starting in Fort Worth for the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, which as the name hints is from the Colonial CC. Winning last year was Adam Scott who beat Jason Dufner in a playoff. Texas is 6 hours behind and so it will start at 1.00pm UK time, on Thursday 21st May 2015. The Course & Past Winners The Colonial CC is in Fort Worth, Texas, to the south west of the city on the banks of the Clear Fork of the Trinity River. Opened in the 1930’s it’s another fairly tight course that will take plenty of course management to work your way around it. It’s a par 70 course and 7,204 yards long, after being..
Roland Garros 2015 - ATP Draw Preview
by botev1921 on 22 May at 23:45
I will not deviate from the well-established tradition of posting a preview of the ATP draw for each Grand Slam and once again following very positive feedback after the Aussie Open, I am ready to present my thoughts on how Lady Luck arranged the different match-ups for the second of the four big tennis events of 2015. Roland Garros is very specific in its nature as the clay, which some consider the only true tennis surface has been heavily dominated by one group of players with distinguishable skill set and most important of all, one player who rightfully so grew up to be the true King of Clay. For the first time in a decade, however, Rafael Nadal does not enter his fortress as favourite and for the first time ever he actually has been significantly outplayed in the build-up..
The BTTS. Final Day.
by redhammer on 19 May at 22:15
Both Teams To Score; Last Day of the season special Part II which is Bobslay13's blog can be found HERE Intro This weekend marks the final gameweek of the season in the Premier League, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, La Liga and the Portuguese Primeira Liga. It’s a well-known fact that the average goals per game (GPG) skyrockets on the last day so myself and Bobslay13 thought it would be a good idea to revive the shared Both Teams To Score blog after a month off with our favourite selections and hope to go out in style with a nice chunky accumulator win. Below is an example of the increase in goals in 4 of Europe’s top divisions on the final day. The figures illustrate the theory well with an increase of approximately 4 goals on the final day in Spain..
