australian masters

can't get too much enthusiasm for this event which starts tomorrow... still enjoying the win on Quiros last week which I didn't blog about as only just got my bets on before it started; shame as would have been a nice 40/1 winner for the blog! (mentioned it on OLBG if proof is needed!)

AQ is my fav golfer and notched his 6th win on tour which have all made my pockets bulge as I back him so often

anyway, this event sees Donald fresh from his money lists triumphs and his US PGA golfer of the year award - whether he will have enough oomph or desire to win here is debatable but his odds are a joke so that's a huge avoid

Ogilvy & Allenby may well come to blows in the car park if they continue their little tiff from a few weeks ago - hard to tell from distance but no surprise to see Allenby moaning and my money's on good guy Geoff to win that particular battle (they claim to be best of pals again)

Chalmers is a reasonable win bet at 14/1 or so as he looks to win a superb hatrick of big events down here this spring/summer > very hard to do (although Allenby did 6 yrs ago) but he has the confidence and his game should really be suited by this short course

fast greens and plenty of bunkers around so the neat, tidy and short-game wizard players should come to the fore here > ignoring the top 3 in the market leaves Chalmers and not many others really..Senden may go well but is one who finds it so hard to win; Poults could do with a good finish to his year and is hinting at some form recently

good chance of some storms and if the wind blows then Ogilvy should benefit as he is such a good iron player in the breeze; being his 'home'course too should help so perhaps he's worth a small bet too

Pilkadaris and Blizard at 130 and 140 may attract some small trading dough from me as may Fowler who has done so well on the Seniors tour (260 is a good trading price) - Summers at 330 is another who has a bit of ability and may feature early

summary > small win bets on Ogilvy & Chalmers and some trading dough on the others
