With all of the total bellends in the game, it is nice to see a chap like Sergio finally win a major.

And he's also the Chairman of a Third Division football club in Spain.

Garcia can fuck off.  The stupid Spanish wanker. And this has nothing at all to do with the tenner I had on Rose at 27-1 a short while back....

Ian Poulter joint 5th, 3 behind the leaders going into the final round of the Players. Can Poults win the biggest tournament outside the majors at the age of 41. Afraid I can't see it, but you never know.

Commentators were saying Oosthuizen and Stanley have taken 4 hours 35 mins to complete their rounds, which is absolutely ridiculous for a 2 ball.

I'm worried about my brother, he's taken up golf again.

I've entered the ballot for tickets to the 2018 Masters. I've already looked at flight costs to Atlanta - wow. I don't expect we'll be lucky enough to get tickets but even if we were to, I don't think we could afford it!

Wolverhampton pro Aaron Rai birdies the first at the US Open. A member of Patshull Park apparently.

He qualified at Walton Heath (lovely old course by the way, and one Churchill, Lloyd George played at) and where Michael Campbell qualified before winning in 2005.

US Women's Open held this past weekend at Trump's US National Course in New Jersey.

The Final Leaderboard shows no Americans finishing in the top ten - oh the irony.

He probably slithered away well before the final round finished.

If the recent trend of 1st time winners in the major tournaments continues, I think Jon Rahm at 18/1 is a good bet and Rory to miss the cut another good bet.

I'm on Fleetwood. More bets to follow, along with grim weather.

Skybet paying ten places. Have gone with Dufner at stupid odds (125-1). I know nothing about golf but I'm sure he's won a Major before, so thought he might be worth a gamble.

Yeah he won the PGA in 2013. Looking at the betting I notice Danny Willett, last years Masters champion, is 250-1. Blimey how the mighty have fallen.

I considered him, but when I Googled him it seems he's had some injury problems lately. Probably one to avoid (no doubt he will win it, now I've said that).

Willett has been garbage recently, and split from his mate and caddie. Avoid.
