Genesis Open, Thailand Classic, TPS Sydney & Saudi Ladies International

By |

Backawinners, I don’t often tip players at $40, but last week Okkie Strydoms form on Bermuda and his recent win in South Africa suggested he was the best value of the favourite and so it turned out! In Australia Ryan Ruffels ($100) shot 11 under in the first round, but could not sustain the form, the same might go for

Vic Open, Singapore Classic, Waste Management Phoenix Open

By |

Backawinners, another couple of big dividend chances slipped by this last week with Shae Wools-Cobb ($251 each way) beat all but the previous non-winner Sarah Jane Smith, who despite that record someone must have know as she started at $25! The women definitely have a chance in these mixed events.  On the PGA Tour, Hank Lebioda ($601 each way) led

Abu Dhabi Championship, The American Express, LPGA Tournament of Champions

By |

Last week I tossed up between Si Woo Kim ($360) and Si H Kim ($290) and foolishly chose the latter. Why I didn’t tip both is a complete error of judgement. Si Woo won and SH ran 12th. Carl Yuan ($590) also ran 12th. Abu Dhabi Championship The European Tour starts off their year with the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship

Sony World Open

By |

Jon Rahm shot ten under in the last round and scooted away with the Sentry tournament of Champions last week, our man JJ Spaun ($320 on Betfair) tied for fifth. In retrospect the $126 each way on Bet365 would have been better for a $31.50 winner. The overs tempted me! Sony World Open This week the circus heads off to

Toto Japan Classic, Worldwide Technology Championship

By |

A disappointing end to a week of great promise. Ben Crane ($1000) lead the Bermuda Classic after 36 holes, but in a four hole stretch late on Saturday, he dropped from leading to 4 behind and it was way from there. In the Portuguese Masters, David Drysdale ($1000) hung in there eventually tieing for 8th, but the winner, the very

Portuguese Masters, Bermuda Classic, LIV Charade

By |

Last week, Backawinners showed real promise with Nicolai von Dellinghausen ($176 each way) charging to the lead. The Fried egg podcast described it thus... “On an afternoon of twists and turns, overnight co-leader Paul had been in the driving seat on the back nine before a two-shot swing at the 15th handed his playing partner Marcus Armitage a two-stroke lead

Zozo Championship, Andalucia Classic, LIV Jeddah

By |

Last week Backawinners we had a couple of strong winning chances late in the last round, In the LIV invitational Sihwan Kim-($600) T3,  putted poorly but still shot 68 in the last round. Had a real chance to win. The winner was playing only his 5th professional event after a distinguished college career. An amazing result. Jed Morgan ($1500) each

Spanish Open, Mediheal Championship, Shriners for Children Open, LIV Bangkok

By |

Last week Backawinners our man Garrick Higgo $400/1 each way steadily advanced through the field almost mistake free until the 71st green where after a superb iron shot, he missed the short birdie putt. From the long rough on the last he could only manage a par which left him one behind the pair tied for the lead. A $101

Dunhill Links Championship, Ascendant Championship, Sanderson Farms

By |

Backawinners, a very good tipping week that could have been outstanding as in the LPGA, rookie,  Muni He was one behind with ten holes to go. She hit two magnificent shots to the last green and lipped out for Eagle. One of her playing partners holed a 45 yard chip for three to tie for the lead and the other

LPGA xtra, Presidents Cup individual tips

By |

Backawinners, a very big financial prospect tonight with Muni He ($1501 each way), fourth and four back and Isi Gabsa ($750 each way) one further back. Lots of close opposition, but both in with a winning chance. Muni bogey free today is a very good sign.   Individual match possibilities tonight with the International team showing great courage to stay

French Open, Walmart Championship, Presidents Cup, Early betting

By |

Backawinners! The closest we got last week was Charl Schwartzel ($81 each way missing by one shot). In the LPGA Bianca Pagdanagdanan finished 19th with a strong finishing round of a tourney best 63. Back to form we won’t be getting the $940 odds again.  French Open The week starts with the Cazoo French Open at Le Club Nationale south

Made in Himmerland, Dana Open (LPGA), LIV The International

By |

Last week, one of my regular tips, Paula Reto won at $301 each way. Two weeks ago I tipped her at $700! I have to apologise to Backawinners watchers for an unforgivable error. Our closest was Emma Talley-$501 each way who finished two shots out of fifth after an up and down finish that promised much, but sadly ashed out.
