Our tip last week, Camillo Villegas($601) who ran second went one better this week taking out the PGA tour event in Bermuda. Working on the principle that lightning doesn’t strike in the same place twice we left him out this week at the still generous odds of $180!

Backawinners nearly had a big payday last week Jasmine Suwannapura-$226 was in the lead during the last round and needed a birdie on the reachable par 5, 18th to be in the three women playoff. Sadly Attaya Thitikull made the birdie, Jasmine didn’t. Still a $69 place payout was still a winning week. In the other event, Thomas Aikin ($501

Backawinners, Last week I had a brain fade fortunately not a costly one! I backed Nicholas Colsaert at $1501 each way and with nine holes to go he could still win and was comfortably in the first four. However, the weather improved, Sebastian Soderberg birdied the last five holes for 62 and bumped him into a tie for sixth! However

Made in Himmerland, LPGA US Open, John Deere Classic, LIV London

Recently given the four day tour de force of the average event we were often cruelly denied a good result by an unlucky or poor finish. This week the worm turned, Daniel Hillier ($180) on Betfair eagled 15, birdied 16, and eagled 17 to run over the opposition and win what I believe will be one of many at the

Meijer Classic, US Open

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
