The Open – Rory’s friend

Excerpt (Please click blog post title to read post in full): "The eagle-eyed amongst you (and the more knowledgeable wildlife lovers) will be able to identify the animal flying in front of Rory I'm sure (I know, but I'm not going to say anything else other than Rory did NOT get a 6 on this hole...)"

Excerpt (Please click blog post title to read post in full): "After seeing a couple of RIDICULOUS odds on golfers... I thought I'd up the ante a bit. I've now made 8 bets on this year's Open. Most are BIG value. ALL are detailed below... Good luck, grapple fans!"

The 2018 Open at Car-not-so-nasty. My 6 (six!) bets…

Excerpt (please click blog post title to read post in full): "For what it's worth, I'd be happiest if Russell Knox or Lee Westwood, or Tommy Fleetwood or Justin Rose or Bubba Watson won. Or even Brandt Snedeker. And for what its worth... here (below) are my ACTUAL bets, I've just laid with Ladbrokes. I've been dumb enough to bet all but £5.50p of my Brooks Koepka US Open winnings. (I know!) Anyway... whoever you pick... Good luck!"

Is Poulter an ‘R-sole’, then?

Excerpt (Please click blog post title to read post in full): "He's not alone though. Many, many of his pampered, multi-millionaire colleagues are too - although, unlike someone like Seve (who we always seemed to forgive being an interminable 'R-sole' (yes he was... he really was!)) it's more obvious and less quickly-forgiveable with someone like the boggly-eyed, hair-dying, dandy fop that is the constantly-preening, bristling Poulter."

Peter and Paul.

Another round round-up. Purple hairstreaks.

Excerpt (Please click blog post title to read post in full): "That all said, I thoroughly enjoyed my “me time” on the deserted course last night. The two reasons took up golf (hitting the odd shot like my shot of the day yesterday – which keeps me coming back for more) and to be surrounded by wildlife (and have the awareness and knowledge I suppose to NOTE this wildlife) made me walk off the course with a grin across me chops."

We’re ALL playing Links golf right now.

Excerpt (Please click blog post title to read post in full): "I've ditched the driver as there's just no point in risking it at present. I'm getting 270 yards from a lazy, abbreviated swing with my 3 wood - which bounces and rolls on and on, on these yellow, firm fairways."
