The Final Major of the year is on this weekend at the Valhalla Golf Course in Louisville Ky .




Last Tournament I followed there was the 2008 Ryder Cup which was won by USA ... Well in fact it was a trouncing ! Will this play into my mind when making selections before Thursday Morning May well do !

Current inform Players to watch out for over the weekend ... Ricki Fowler , Bubba Watson , Jordan Spieth , Matt Kuchar ,Sergio Garcia, Martin Kaymer ,Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy ( who is red hot Fav with the bookies) But of course to discount Michelson , Woods (if he plays ) or Els would be foolish

Weather

No Severe weather is forecast at this stage However It is in See Text for Thursday

    Beautiful course there.
    I'm looking at the image in your header and imagining where my ball would be.
    After hitting at least 1 shot into that water on the left I'd be in the far upper right corner in the middle of that Kentucky gorse, hitting my 5th shot.
    .
    Nice to hear the forecast..if it has to rain let it be Thursday.
    Looking forward to the tourney and even more The Ryder Cup.
    I'll leave the betting up to you.

    Haha ! I am thinking Ror but his price is pathetic 5/1 ...

    From My bookie

    Allright...as a gambler I'm obliged to have an opinion. Though I'd encourage you to go with your own thoughts..you're playing with house money after that nice 18/1 win on McIlroy.
    .
    McIlroy imo is a deserved favorite. Not only is he winning, he's doing it with ease..he seems to have found a sweet spot in his game/life, and 5/1 seems fair. I'd pick him. The others you mention don't appear to be playing very well of late.
    .
    The PGA field is weak. Starting out 50% of the field has zero chance...club pros and such..this makes the 5/1 price on McIlroy more of a value. I'd wager on McIlroy and a couple of longer shots(Matsuyama, Chappell, Bubba, Na, and my sleeper(Bohn))

    I know what your saying about MCIlroy but 5/1 is too miserly for me in such a huge field .. I will probably be wrong and may sneek a bet in running later tomorrow ... My picks 2 are because I will be sick if they do win I and I have not backed as I have for years .... Day and Garcia ... I have also backed Fowler he is so due and Kaymer because he is a winner and when Germans have the taste of winning they tend to be hungry for another

    Day could do it, though he hasn't been at his best lately.
    Garcia has been at his best...and as usual manages to lose anyway. Maybe one day.
    This Jason Bohn would be the longshot for me, at 750.1 or so.
    Over 30, playing well. Ranked #57. Likely has some experience with Valhalla having gone to college in Tucaloosa until thisJeff Bradley: Ace kick started Jason Bohn's pro career - ESPN. Tall and slender, which suits the hot conditions. You never want to bet on a fat man in this tournament. John Daly would be an exception...but he fits the obscure American profile in retrospect.
    Put a pound on Bohn each and every way. just in case. I'd do it myself but it's not exactly legal here.

    Relax and enjoy it. You could use a break away from things for a while. (By the way; The Velma avi is growing on me. I like it. See if you can work it into your regular rotation now and then.)

    EDIT: She was always the smart one.

    Good luck Lib. I'll be happy if 1 of your picks hit(Fowler, Day?).
    I'd like to see Michelson, Chappel...if Rory doesn't win.
    Keeping it out of that wet rough will be key.

    I have a tshirt logo or just for the tshirt almost done, but I need an expression we might read here. Something everyone relates to. Something along the lines of 'If it ain't broke, we fix it', something to do with weather but my creative juices are taking a nap.

    1) "It's quiet, Too quiet"

    2) "...or possibly nothing like that at all."

    3) "Barreling, ....Barreling."

    4) "We don't take ourselves seriously, so neither should you."

    5) "Door Vood!"

    There are many many more. Consult LF's Bunkerisms Blog. She has them all.
