It was a disappointing week for us at Congaree as four of our five picks missed the cut whilst the one remaining heading in to the weekend, Patrick Rodgers, struggled over the final 36 holes.

For obvious reasons it was always going to be a tough event to get a handle on and suffice to say we will move on swiftly.

The tournament itself was one…

It was a week that will stay long in the memory at the Memorial tournament and not necessarily for all the right reasons.

On Saturday evening the event, which was being dominated by Jon Rahm was turned on its head when the Spaniard walked off the 18th green after shooting 64 to open up a six shot lead heading in to Sunday only to…

It was another somewhat frustrating week for us at Colonial CC as despite all of our five picks making the cut and hovering around the higher reaches of the leaderboard we were only able to back a small each way return through two of our team, Grillo and Harman, who both finished in a logjam tie for eighth place.

Unfortunately that’s the way…

It was a fantastic weeks viewing at the PGA Championship with Kiawah Island providing a tremendous challenge to the players.

I said on Twitter that the PGA of America should set up their Major to be played at Kiawah every year and while this comment was obviously made somewhat tongue in cheek the fact that we only see this Pete Dye gem…

Unfortunately it was another frustrating Sunday for us at the AT&T Byron Nelson as a final day, which had started with us having a 250/1 shot and a 150/1 shot sat one shot outside of the places going in to the day, in the shape of Bronson Burgoon and Ben Martin, ended with us getting nothing as both men stalled on Sunday. Burgoon’s performance in particular…

It was a week that at various stages promised so much for us at the Wells Fargo Championship, but which ultimately ended frustratingly with us only just about getting our stakes back.

Firstly our 300/1 pick Patrick Rodgers held a share of the halfway lead before struggling on Saturday and then our 125/1 pick Aaron Wise finished one shout out of…

It was a ‘nearly but not quite’ week for us at the Valspar as our 60/1 pick Keegan Bradley who lead from day up till Sunday in the end fell short finishing in second place.

After Bradley had struggled with the putter on the back nine on Saturday I have to be honest I wasn’t overly confident going in to Sunday, however for the first dozen…

It was a fascinating week at the Zurich Classic pairs event and Sunday provided plenty of drama before the Aussie pair of Leishman and Smith finally got the better of the South African duo of Oosthuizen and Schwartzel in a play off after Oosthuizen found the water with his tee shot on the first extra hole, the par five 18th.

From our point…

It is fair to say it wasn’t our week at the Masters unfortunately with our team as a whole performing poorly.
The one notable exception to that was Si Woo Kim who having been in the mix at the half way stage, despite breaking his putter in frustration on Friday, stalled over the weekend, before agonisingly finishing in 12th when we were on for 11 places…

It wasn’t our week at The Valero Texas Open as unfortunately after a slow start on Thursday no one from our team was ever able to get in to the mix. After day one it had looked at though we might be heading to most if not all of our picks missing the cut however.

In the end four made it through to the weekend and played reasonably solidly from there on…
