    You're right, he does this a lot. However, you would have to have done during yesterday's round. He's currently up to third spot at -4.
    I apologise if this counts as after-eventing but I stuck a fiver e/w on him before play today at 22/1.

    Lots of golf to be played yet though.

    Oh, and fwiw I still managed to get 100/1 on Bjerregaard who was -2 after one round, sitting just 4 back at that point. Stuck another fiver on him e/w.

    They say the cream rises to the top.

    There are some top players gathering at the top of that Leader Board.

    As you would expect.

    The cream these days though are around 10 to 20 top players. Its really hotting up and even if I didn't have a bet on Tiger I think it would be great for golf to see him win the Green Jacket once again. in saying that whoever wins will deserve it as Augusta is a course to be won over the distance and it normally takes a special player to win it.

    I know you said usually, but we've had Willet, Mize and other surprise winners at the Masters.

    Usually a cream player wins the Masters and not a tour player journeyman which is why I change my betting habits especially for the Masters.

    There are far too many breaks in Sky's coverage tonight. I'll be heading to the Beeb for the weekends play.

    Adam Scott has probably started the best of the leaders.

    Obviously Finau is having an incredible round but given where he came from, I wouldn't really have put him amongst the leaders at the start of play.

    Especially if he keeps hitting shots like his second to the 7th.

    Absolutely ridiculous that

    A cracker in to the 8th as well.

    He had a quiet start but he's warming up now.

    Well after a nightmare round on my own course today, it's great to settle down with a couple of drams and take in the Masters. I shudder to think how many shots it would take me to get round Augusta but I'd love to give it a try!

    You can't see the Woods for the trees but jeez Tiger must be the luckiest golfer in the world with all the breaks he gets! 😁

    Not the best in the spring meeting today for you then? Must have been strange having the wind with you on the back 9! I was to late to enter so never got a game, managed to get an invite at North Berwick, Very very windy today.

    Played at Peebles today in a very strong cross wind but the truth is I played absolutely crap. 😊

    It's been excellent viewing and some stellar golf has been played.

    Molinari will need to deal with the circus of Tiger in the final group of a Major on a Sunday and all of the crowd that follows.

    He played superbly yesterday, but that'll add another dimension.

    Personally, I'd love to see Woods win it and get back on track. Not sure how HE'LL cope with that pressure though.

    It will be, but it's really screwed my plans.

    There's a Master's competition at York Golf Club - a Texas Scramble - which was supposed to let us play then watch the golf.

    Incredibly, rather than cancel it, they've reduced it to 9 holes. I'm supposed to be off at 3.09 and I think the guys in my team want to play.

    A compromise solution has been found.

    We're going out at 12.30 instead.

    I'm sure you wanted to know.

    Loving this today with the early start. Feels the the Open Sunday.

    Hopefully Molinari feels the same way in a few hours.

    Best coverage?

    BBC or Sky?

    Canít believe that is actually a question no adverts and Peter Alliss, has to be the Beeb.

    Peter Allis is not a plus, in my view.

    Some good saves on the past few holes from Molinari.

    He's a very steady player, and you get the feeling someone will have to do something pretty special to beat him.

    With the luck Tiger is having, it's a near certainty he'll go on to win.

    He's getting more than his fair share of breaks.
