He put £50 on Chelsea to win and btts against stoke and Spieth to win in a double so he actually won thanks to Charlie Adams freak goal. He's a little bit gutted but his still up 1300 so not really too down on it. I wouldn't have cashed out on Friday personally but I can see why he did golf can change really quick and being only 21 you wouldn't of been shocked if nerves did get the better of him.
He's gone from being a spectacle for the right reasons to being one for the wrong reasons. And, unfortunately for him, the latter is almost as compelling to watch due to how good he once was. He certainly deserves credit for continuing to try though.
Bah, another mouthy Yank wins it, was rooting for Oosthuizen.
A pretty tortuous tournament this year (and I mean that in a good way), with all the delays with the weather, having to play an extra day, then the tight leaderboard, and ultimately a three-way playoff. It turned out to be a classic Open all in all. I should have went tbh, but saw how dreach it was so decided rather than drive over there, never finding a car space, and walk about in all that cold and rain, I'd just sit on my arse and watch it instead!
Not sure Zach J can be classed as "another mouthy yank", always seemed really humble to me, but with some honest emotion inside as well. Comes across as a nice guy to me, unlike that manufactured soft arse Spieth.
First round today after an arm op and it wasn't good.
Played Cumberwell Park in Wiltshire which is a very good course if you're ever down this way. 4 x 9 with different themes for each 9 (water, links, tree lined, bunker strewn).
I played the water and links 9's and was 8 over my handicap of 16. Serious practice needed but my arm held up ok. Distance was good but my short game is toss up to what it was.
Tried the new Cobra Baffler XL hybrids, out of interest, instead of my normal 3 and 4 irons and was quite impressed to be fair. The problem was the idiot using them!
