    Was at work when the big hitters were on my doorstep yesterday so taking a jaunt to St Andrews tomorrow for the Dunhill.

    Great that it's free entry, fantastic opportunity to see elite golf without hitting you in the pocket

    Few Scots up there in contention too :50:

    First Major of the year this week, US PGA, for those of you who like a flutter on the majors :50:

    Sky Bet are paying 1/5 on 11 (ELEVEN) places

    Tony Finau at 40/1 is good value and I will definitely be taking Byeong-Hun An at 100/1 too.

    Just had a look there, 40/1 for Finau is a fantastic bet.

    Might have a dabble with DeChambeau at 12s too.

    I backed Justin Thomas @ 15/1 before lockdown and postponements. Just left the bet to run. Hope his win last week doesn’t jinx him this week! Not often players win back to back.

    Ended up plumping with Dustin Johnson been stinking lately, but got a decent score last week and just taking a chance. Free bet I had put Woods on, but he's actually went out in price since.

    I've backed Speith lately, but opted against him this time around, hopefully not bite me. In the * like that fud Thomas who I backed a few times, but gave up on him after throwing that playoff against Moriwaka a few weeks ago (no way he's winning after last weeks win).

    Maybe just me watching this

    That flag position today on 12 is terrifying

    Lots of coming and going at the top, tough course and exciting stuff

    My guys leading, but wondering if Koepka could come through.

    The course has been set up really well. Scores haven’t been too low. 66-70is a good score. Keeps the leaderboard compact.

    Think it’s brilliant when the wind gets up and the greens dry out. Really shows who is on form.

    If Johnson gets to -12 he’ll win but anything else I reckon only Koepka could swoop in. Probably a playoff.
