  • I’ve bought Kempton Favourites at 58
    I’ve bought two jockey performances
    H.Skelton/Ludlow at 18.75
    B.Hughes/Ayr at 41

    Ludlow and Wolverhampton both tight so maybe back later with another bet?

  • Pebble Beach
    Grace 35/1 1pt ew
    Stallings 150/1 0.75pt ew

    Rodgers 150/1 0.75pt ew
    Glover 125/1 0.75pt ew

    A lot of outsiders have prospered in this tournament in the past due to the pro-am nature which isn’t for everyone with the 5.5-6 hour rounds. U.S players have tended to dominate and rookies haven’t fared too well

    • I am going with Paul Casey, 1 point each way at 33/1 and Sungjae Im at 1 point each way at 50/1.

      Good luck.

      • I can but dream. Went close here with Blixt at 200/1 a few years back and Ted Potter and Vaughn Taylor both won at 500/1+. Think the pro am relaxed nature of the tournament lends itself to outsiders getting involved. Just hope I’ve got the right ones on board

  • Will Pebble Beach be tougher than normal this year because of it being got ready for this US Open?Hence maybe the more quality players being involved

    • You’d think that would make logical sense but someone I follow on Twitter put up some interesting stats on Pebble, one of them being:

      Pebble Beach during the US open in 2010 was the most difficult course on Tour. Pebble during the ATT Pro am that same year was the 31st most difficult course on Tour which is the 2nd easiest the course has played since 2008.

      So seems it played easier that year. Maybe that was due to the wind as that’s the course’s main protection, so maybe it just wasn’t windy that week. Although I don’t think they want to make it too tough for the amateurs as it takes some of them 6 hours to get round normally!

      • Actually scratch that just read an account from a caddy at the course who said that alot of the fairways are a lot narrower and rough is thicker and denser than usual and with it being wet in the build up that will be a factor.

      • James,

        The US Open is always a tougher test. The USGA, who run the US Open, have the say on how the course is set up. In particular they speed up the greens until they are almost, and sometimes actually, unplayable (ref Shinnecock Hills last year).

        The fairways are usually tighter and the rough thicker for the US Open.

        Lastly, the weather conditions are generally very different. At this time of year it’s not too hot and can sometimes be affected by fog but in June it can be up in the 80s, drying out the fairways and greens.
