I can't watch James Robinson, he annoys the fuck out of me. So does Shiels now to be fair. I loved watching his videos but then I listened to his podcast. Shouldn't have, because now I think he's a bit of a tit whose success has completely gone to his head. It's put me off his videos now, even though I've always enjoyed them.

 

I like Peter Finch and the little American fella, Mr Short Game.

 

 

I used to watch both of them myself but just got a bit bored. Mr Short Game isn't even a PGA instructor though.

He's a good little golfer though. Some of his tips have been useful and he's more likeable than most.

 

Shiels' videos are really good and if I hadn't listened to his podcast I'd probably not have anything negative to say about him. His video this week with the world's smallest blades was boss.

Mr Short game is not bad. Not sure about Finch. There's a bit of Billy big bollox about shiels. Tried to watch a Scottish guy , think his name is Steve Johnston but he is very fuckin technical.

Matt Fryer seems a nice enough fella. I don't mind watching his videos. Ali Taylor has some decent stuff too.

 

I don't watch any of them religiously, I just dip in and out depending on the content and whether it grabs my attention or not.

Paige Spiranac is the one!!, thing is I can never concentrate on what she is doing with the club. Generally also just wander through all the golf vids and have a look at what I like the look of. On another note our kid is at the senior pro am at Formby today. He sent me a pic of Ruddock...he is fuckin massive.

I watch loads of youtube golf but I don't think I've ever seen him. Will check it out.

 

Stacked Golf is a guilty pleasure. I don't even know why I like it, I just do.

 

If you haven't seen it, it's a young couple who live in Florida and they go around flea markets, garage sales and charity shops looking for old golf clubs. Then they go out and play with them. It sounds shit, and I can't really even explain to you why it isn't. I just like it.

 

SAS Golf is another one.

Haha those random ones are addictive at time. I keep getting caught up with Golf mates which is really random and doesnt really offer any tips.

I've heard that's good but I've avoided that because of his accent!

Yeah he is a wool but he seems like a sound fella.

That fella from SAS golf just gets on my nerves for some reason. Ive seen that Stacked Golf but not something for me personally. I used to watch that Golfmates but it's so unfunny and their accents just piss me off. He's a proper Div the lad from Bolton who does it.

If I had know there was a Venezuelan golfer at the Olympics called Johnny Vegas he would definitely had a fiver of mine on him.

 

Speaking of bets, forgot to post mine.

 

I have...

 

To win

 

Cam Smith

Sungjai Im

Si Woo Kim

 

To be in the medal places

 

Straka

Bezuidenhout

Leishman

 

 

Badly need a result here. Checked through my history and I made £265 profit in my first month golf betting, and I'm over a hundred down since then. Si Woo Kim winning gets me the biggest payout so I'm rooting for him, with Straka and Bezuidenhout in the silver and bronze ideally.

You should do it on Betfair and lay your bets off when you have a profit.

That's hardened gambler talk! I have no idea about all that stuff, I'm pretty basic with my gambling. All that in play shit and laying off, it's all way over my head.

 

Wish I'd have been able to last that last week with that bum Fowler though. -7 after round one and in the lead. Ends up -6 for the tournament three days later.

Just watched Rick Shiels and Min Gee Woo play St Andrews in reverse. Shiels using an old set of hickory clubs and a gutty ball for last 3 holes. Really enjoyed it and for the first time I could really see the humps and hollows around and on the greens.

I watched that a while back. Woo (not that one) was amazing, wasn’t surprised at all to see him winning tournaments not long after.
