honda classic

US tour swing switches coast and off to florida for the next few weeks - tricky event the honda and at 7200 yards and par 70 it should favour the best ball strikers and those who putt well on this grass etc

anyway, gonna skip the top of the market as any of the top 5 could win but don't buzz me

have to look at recent course form tho' and I've been close to picking bob for a while now... freddie too and wi perhaps

current form leads me to possibly stick with levin and points altho both have paid me handsomely recently...

and a few trades look interesting...

rob ALLENBY > v good record here and terrific striker of the ball - needs to sink some putts to win as always as that is the slightly weaker area of his game.. overdue a win on this tour bigtime and could well be primed to go well here after a reasonable effort fortnight ago > 33 appeals much more for him than those higher

freddie JACOBSON > course form and good show last wk until the weekend means he is wortha punt here > 66 is enough to warrant a dabble

louis OOSTHUIZEN > will stick with him as think he is over-priced still - good player who is close to moving up into that top echelon I feel, already bagged a major of course... 84 (Unibet) looks generous so will go with that

YE YANG > previous winner here, in good current form, major winner.. all the ticks you want really...worthy bet at 47

ernie ELS > finishing my 5 this week with forgotten man of sorts... could be time for the big easy to click and experience and all round game means 33/1 is attractive for me

walker is a good shout but bit low for me odds-wise, dufner likewise may go well... good luck to all those on them and others of ocurse!

trading > Brett Wetterich at 200 (nice to see him return after so long out and is showing good signs of form), Alex Cejka at 170 (fav of mine for trading as often starts well), Chris Couch 160 (terrific putter, two top 10s in 3 events this yr and altho no form in this, have a feeling!)

and might dabble on two big prices in Kent Jones at 816 and Derek Lamely at 740


  1. els was 6 over after 6 but managed to fight back to remain +5 by the end - the wind took its toll to day the least

    nice start from yang (got 50 on betfair and down to 13 lay now)

    couch played well too and from 180 back on betfair is now 60 or so to lay

    allenby ticking over at the same price

  2. couch managed to get to -3 early in round 2 and dropped to about 20 or 30 but I didn't pick the low point with him.. still got out and did ok as he was a trade

    others all fell away bar yang who had a good crack at winning and was runner-up a shot back eventually - was profitable though and the PGA tour continues to pay well this year
