A win last week, but as it turned out a very small compensation. Soreness Kjeldsen ($276) was always in a striking position, but did not look like challenging Dean Withnell who I had tipped many times, but sadly not this week. He gained his first DP World Tour win. Anne van Damme and one other birdied the last to cut our dividend from $69 to $17.50 as a result of a four way tie for fifth!

The DP World Tour have a rest whilst the US Open is played.

US Open

The US Open takes centre stage at the fabulous George Thomas designed LA Country Club The now par 70 course measures 7236 yards (6570m), has a slope of 143 and a course rating of 75.7, but these figures will be dwarfed as a result of the very deep and penal rough lining  all fairways and greens. Gil Hanse, Jim Wagner and Geoff Shackleford have set the Course up for the Open. One of the great features I found when I played it were the bunkers appered to be greenside, but were often 30-50 metres short, great camouflage. Another feature is the houses adjoining of the rich and famous including the Playboy mansion of Hugh Hefner on the 5th fairway.

Due to the number of options on Bet365 each way, I have judged those capable of winning to back on Betfair, but you may prefer to back them each way at lesser odds and various potential positions also or alternatively on Bet365.
