  1. Second golf major of the year starts Thursday from Bethpage Black. Unlike the Masters there is a good amount of TV coverage on Sky Sports. Looking at around 6 hours live on the Thursday and Friday.

    Anyone had a bet yet?

    How come it's been moved to May? Always was the final major, wasn't it?

    Betting on a big hitter.

    40/1 for Finau is tempting. Was thinking Koepka but his odds are to short.

    Will probs whack a tenner on Tiger as well.
     
  4. Tough course Bethpage.
    Not the longest but need to keep it on the fairways to have any chance of winning it.
     
  5. It was felt it needed a shot in the arm. For some reason folk seemed a bit underwhelmed by it. With the move to May we now have a major a month from April and its fitted in the schedule nicely

  6. Feels a bit strange having another major so soon after the Masters, but at the same time I think it'll be good having the 4 month major season.

    I've gone for:

    Fleetwood, accuracy off the tee is vital here, just needs his putter to behave itself.
    Molinari, so close at the Masters, that experience will serve him well, he has also been very good with his accuracy.
    Finau, that first major can't be far away.
    Spieth, looked a lot better at the Byron Nelson, not spraying as many of his tee shots around, putted really well and has the motivation of the Grand Slam as well. For betting purposes, his poor early season form has him at a good price.

    Not put any money on yet but quite fancy a dabble on the following:

    Koepka
    Poutler
    Molinari
    Kuchar
    McDowell

    Finau at the moment because he belts it miles despite having a 3/4 swing :lol:

    Going to have a look later.

    Hardest (in theory) major to win as it has the top 100 from the World Rankings in it and doesn’t waste its time with the Woosnams of this world.

    They mentioned the olympics too. They had to move it last year for them and would have to do so every four years so felt instead of it going back and forth just move it for good. Also giving it a boost like you said.

    Some good offers about if anyone's interested.

    Willy Hill give you a free tenner for every eagle your selection makes and Betway are paying out if they lead at the end of the 1st, 2nd or 3rd rounds.

    It’s a long drivers course, theoretically good for Dustin Johnson and McIlroy if both can maintain some accuracy off the tee

    it is a very long course and will play even longer after the rain they have just had

    My mate is on Westwood’s bag for the first time.

    He’s said to back Koepka.

    Rory for me as usual, this time I have slightly more hope given his record on this course.

    Molinari to win and might go ew on Leishman, Wise and Watson. Watson hasn't been the golfer he was a few years back but he is gradually getting back to been a decent golfer.
