Golf bets recap

The European tour bets were according to the new betting scheme, the PGA tour bets were still random.

Only one winning bet. The place bet on Gallacher which did return 0.58 pts, so a loss of 0.42 pts for the european tour.
M. Warren missed the cut.
Cabrera (T35) was never really in contention.
F. Molinari (T42) made the cut, but from then on he couldn't play a sub par round.
Koepka (T28) was in contention untill saturday.

Update Johnnie Walker Championship bets

At the end of round 1, all my bets are still within the cut.
I expect the cut tomorrow around -1, maybe even -2.
Wiesberger, one of the favorites of the bookies, took the best start with -7.

Pleased with the start of Koepka, with -4. 2 boogies, 6 birdies.
Molinari is also still within striking distance at -3. Also 6 birdies but one boogie more. Last year, he did start with a 68, followed by 2 rounds in the seventies. If he can record another sub 70 round tomorrow, he still will be in contention.
Warren, Cabrera and Gallacher all recorded a -1. Only 3 birdies for Warren and Cabrera. Gallacher just had to many boogies 5 but did end the day with a promising eagle.

Still 54 holes left to play. So lots of things which can happen. The first hurdle is always to make the cut, followed by a good score on moving day!

The Barclays:
J. Day and H. Stenson didn't miss their start.Together with Spieth they were the only 3 bets who did play a full round. Spieth had a terrible start with a double and 2 boogies on the first round, fougth his way back on the back 9 with 4 birdies. My guess is that he can only climb up the rankings today.
The only other player which worries me a bit at the moment is Haas. +2 after 5 holes with no birdies.
We will see how things evolve.
Update:
3 bets battling to make the cut. Actually 2, cause Poultier is shanking.
For the rest 3 bets within the top10 after the first round. Looks good so far.

Cheers,

Here we are again

Playing again since a week or 2.
No big results yet, but also no big losses.

For the meantime I'm more gambling on golf than on football. Took some time, to create a golf gambling plan. But finally I have one, no I have to stuck to it.
I'll be betting on the PGA and European tour. Max 5 players per tournament on which I will place a win and place bet, eacht worth one point.

When gambling on golf, you and your bankroll has to be capable to under go some long loosing streaks.
It is hard enough to pick out a place or winnen within a 140 people field. But most of the time, a winning bet will buy you some time.

My bets for the Johnnie Walker @ Gleneagles are the following:
Win and place both for 1pts at the following players:
- Cabrera-Bello (w: 34 p: 8)
- M. Warren (w: 26 p: 6)
- S. Gallacher (w: 23 p: 5.75)
- F. Molinari (w: 13 p: 3.75)
- B. Koepka (w: 51 p: 11)

My bets for the PGA tour this week, (not according to the betting plan, placed before the plan was created):
- K. Bradley (winner 1 pt (41))
- B. Haas (winner 1 pt (46) and place 1 pt (10))
- J. Day (winner 1 pt (34) )
- I. Poulter (winner 1 pt (71) and place 1 pt (15))
- J. Spieth (winner 1 pt (61) and place 1 pt (13))
- W. Simpson (winner 1 pt (36))
- H. Stenson (winner 1 pt (19))
