Fed Ex Cup Standings After Deutsche Bank

www.stanjames.com2011 KLM Open
Hilversumsche GC,Hilversum,Netherlands
Predicted odds from stanjames. Will be update when odds are published.

Martin Kaymer 12/1

Its has been a disappointing id Summer for Kaymer after failing to make an impression at the WGC Bridgestone then missing the cut when defending at the PGA. However last weeks second in the Swiss Alps is the German’s fourth top 10 of the season and he seems bang in form to defend here in Holland. Won by a country mile last year in very murky conditions thanks to a great putting display. Of the top three of Kaymer, McIlroy and Westwood, it looks like Kaymer’s form on the greens gives him the best chance of trio this now

Simon Dyson 36/1

I bet Dyson wishes the KLM Open was being staged in Kennemer where eh won in 2006 and 2009 but alas it’s in Hilversum where he didn’t fare so well last year. Tied 16th last week even with a third round 74. I think there’s another Tour win in him this season to add to the Irish now

Jamie Donaldson 38/1

Surely Jamie Donaldson is due a win soon. Proved he could mix it with the big boys last week in Crans tying third. That was the Welshman’s sixth top 10 of the season. Didn’t play in this event on its return to Hilversum last year but has some good if rather distant memories of the track from 2003 when he tied now

David Lynn 80/1

After tying second at the Iberdrola Open which Darren Clarke won back in May, David Lynn missed seven of his next eight cuts, breaking par just once in Scotland. Last week he clicked into gear with four rounds in the 60’s including a final round 65 to tie sixth. He is bound to be buoyant this week returning to Hilversum, the site of his only Tour win back in now

Nicolas Colsaerts 80/1

The gigantic hitting Belgian Nicolas Colsaerts returns to the European Tour this week after a spell out with an elbow injury. Nico fell off his rented scooter on his way into Sandwich before this years Open and injured his elbow. Now fully recovered Colsaerts has been in the USA with Dave Stockton and reports no problem with the injury. The Volvo China Open winner shot a 62 in round one last year (and tied eighth) and if the weather stays fine don’t discount a good finish from the returning now

Best Of The Rest

Gonzo Castano (60/1) seems to be returning to some form after top 25’s in the Czech Republic and Switzerland last week. He won on the course in 2005 and tied fourth on the events return to Hilversum last year. The home favourite Joost Luiten (70/1) has a best of second in 2007 and finished 15th last week. Started well last year before fading in the rain at the weekend. bet now

Well done to Aaron Kearney (+1) of Castlerock GC on winning the prestigious Rosapenna Senior Scratch Cup sponsored by McGinley Motors, Letterkenny on Saturday.  Aaron edged out Colm Campbell (+2) of Warrenpoint by just one stroke.
The first round was played over the Sandy Hills Links, now ranked 21st in Ireland by Golf Digest Magazine, with the second on the adjacent Old Tom Morris links.
The event got the grandstand finish it truly deserved as both Kearney and Campbell were tied on 4 over playing the 602 yard Par 5 18th. Kearney did a Tommy Bjorn with his approach, stitching it to four feet and after Campbell missed his birdie try from 12 feet, Kearney brushed home for his four to shoot –3 for the round and win by one

gillette There they were on top of the world having fun firing balls and shaving foam at each other in a Gillette ad, but “friends” Roger Federer and Tiger Woods just don’t seem to be as pally as they used to be.

I’m having a little trouble interpreting Roger Federer quotes about Tiger Woods yesterday.

Roger: "It's hard to follow, because you know what an athlete wants to do. He wants to be out there and compete and that's what he's not able to do with his injuries right now."

Doc: He’s not injured Roger.  He didn’t make the FedEx Cup playoffs, he had his chances.  He actually played in his mate Notably Gay III’s charity event last week with Suzann Petterson. He picked up on five of the 18 holes.  So not injured, just playing crap at the moment.

Roger: "He's done so much in such a short period of time and for such a long time, actually, which is where I also draw the inspiration from."

Doc: Short period for a long time? Huh?

Is it A:   Inspired by a guy who has sex with a woman while watching his wide and kids car pull into the driveway? By someone who cheated on his wife so many times he had his own little porn universe?  Hang on, maybe Roger was inspired by Tiger’s golfing exploits.  Tantrums, spitting, or his total disdain for the golfing press. Very inspiring.   

Or is it B: Who secretly isn’t inspired by having experienced every woman in the 52 States, but shhhh, don’t say it in public! 

Roger: "To see those great athletes do it for a very long time, I've been able to do something similar in that regard."

Doc: You’re up to five minutes so.  Roger on top!

Roger: "It's been tough for him the last year. He knows that. It's been hard to watch. I only wish him the best."

Doc: I miss him too Roger.  Sob…

He may have shot a 61 last week but it is the number “two” that is causing Brandt Snedeker problems this week.  Sned has again been warned he faces the FedEx Cup axe by PGA Tour boss Tim Finchem over his inappropriate use of the urinals in the player locker rooms.  This is the third time Snedeker has defied Tour authorities by punishing the wrong porcelain having already received official warnings for dropping the Jackson’s off under similar circumstances at the Booze Allan and Wyndham.

According to sources deep inside the PGA Tour, Snedeker’s problem can be traced back to his youth in Nashville, where a hole in the ground in an outhouse in the paddock served his family of 15 and the inmates of a local prison. Apparently he hadn’t seen a urinal until his arrival on the PGA Tour where, as a practical joke, Tim Herron demonstrated “the inverse squat” position to the unwitting rookie, which he immediately adopted.

More as it emerges, excuse the terrible pun.

sean lock assange We are all about about golf here on GCD but this was too good to let go!

Sean Lock on Channel 4’s “8 out of 10 cats” thinks Julian Assange of Wikileaks has a very strange surname.  Lock says “Assange” has several meanings:

  1. Assange sounds like a term in Croquet, if you knock my ball out of the way, you've "Assanged" my ball.
  2. Or a parade ground drill like "Legionnaires Assange!" and they march into the shape of a croissant.
  3. Or a surgeon who says "We've removed the prostate, now we just need to Assange the wound".
  4. Or Assange could be the rash you get when you wax your chest too quickly.
  5. Or when the meat is nearly ready, you just have to Assange the vegetables

and here’s by best Assanges!julian-assange

  • I'm going to have to Assange the cushions before the guests arrive.
  • Olympic Fencing-The Korean claimed gold with a supremely executed Assange.
  • My wife had her face Assanged at the Spa. Should have seen the shit that came out of her pores!
  • We climbed the North Col, before Assanging the Hilary Step and summitting Everest.


Ever wanted to be able to touch your toes without the  need for a lot of cheaty knee bending?  Or maybe impress your friends at a party by contorting yourself into a tiny suitcase?  Or perhaps having the flexibility to hit the ball 20 yards further and not require hospitalisation after your round?

If the answer is yes to any of the above you need to sign up for one of Anne Marie Kennedy of Yoga for Golf Ireland’s new Yoga classes at the GUI National Golf Academy in Carton House.  Classes start on 13th September and will run for an initial six week period.


Sceptical about Yoga? Leave down your pint and read this:

• It improves flexibility, strength & range of motion for greater distance.  (ie you’ll be able to crush your drives and rub your opponents noses in it!)
• It cultivates a quieter mind to increase concentration, focus & visualisation. (ie you will be like a Samurai warrior on the greens, stealthily stalking your putt before executing the stroke with incredible mind bending accuracy.)
• It improves overall fitness to reduce risk of injury and recovery time (ie you might actually be able to play two days in a row again!)
• Improves balance and coordination to gain more effective club control. (ie no more pirouetting like a ballerina on the tee box and falling backwards in the bunker like a child at the beach.)


About Anne Marie Kennedy (Most of this is True!)

Anne Marie’s teaching style is greatly influenced by her own personal ashtanga and vinyasa flow practice. She trained alongside the legendary martial arts and yoga master Pai Mei  from “Kill Bill” and is said to actually own a Hatori Hanzō sword. Her classes are strong, dynamic and flowing with an emphasis on alignment and form and the integration of the breath.   Anne Marie has also trained with Katherine Roberts of the Golf Channel’s Big Break. So sad I missed that.  Anne Marie once bent backwards and kissed the Blarney Stone whilst balancing on a pogo stick. YouTube it!

excessive beard growth olazabal Fears are growing as to whether Jose Maria Olazabal will be fit to fulfil his role as 2012 European Ryder Cup Captain after a sudden surge in his beard growth shocked the golfing world.  The Spanish legend who already has to shave five times every day and carries a cordless shaver in his golf bag for a mid round face de-fuzzing, suffered a spurt of beard growth yesterday afternoon of approximately four inches in one hour at altitude in Switzerland.  “One minute he was smooth, next he had an afro on his face”, reported a stunned caddie before adding “I thought I was looking at the guy in the Castaway movie”.

Things got worse for Olazabal soon after when his golf top could not fit over his burgeoning  chin pubes and he was forced to practice in just a tee shirt in a cold biting wind.  Soon after a family of birds tried to take cover from the elements in his face forest which forced him to abandon his practice.

Pic: Olazabal abandons efforts to fit on his top over the astonishing growth.

Olazabal was taken to the Ape section of the Swiss National Zoo for treatment late last night and is said to be alert and eating bananas this morning.

European Tour bosses made a statement on their 2012 Team Captain in the past few minutes saying “We are very confident Jose Maria will do a fine job as Ryder Cup Captain.  Even if he does appear as a giant black curly ball of twine on a human’s shoulders, we will know that deep down, Jose will be under there.  We are currently working with both Gillette and the Australian Sheep Shearing Federation to devise a blade strong enough to keep our Captain’s beard at an acceptable level for the matches.”

More as it emerges from Olazabal’s face. 

John Peterson This appeared today on Geoff Shackleford’s excellent site regarding the ongoing debate over John Peterson and David Law being left out of their respective Walker Cup Teams. (As an Irishman I am happy for Alan Dunbar, and think the GB&I side will be stronger with him alongside Paul Cutler, but these guys are the so called experts.)

John Huggan and Steve Elling on the the Walker Cup committee sending captain Jim Holtgrieve's team to Royal Aberdeen without the NCAA Champion and world No. 7 ranked (now former) amateur, John Peterson

John Huggan: Ah yes, amateur bodies picking teams. I have some personal experience of this -- both good and bad -- and sadly these things are not always just about golf. Personalities and nationalities both play parts in this often distasteful business. Both teams will go into this year's matches with something less than their best 10 players. It has nearly always been that way and it always will be.

Steve Elling: You have to wonder if Peterson's post-round comments after that Nationwide event, where he said that there were a bunch of guys in college capable of regularly beating PGA Tour pros, rubbed some folks the wrong way. Still, even if he had said Gadhafi should be governor of New Jersey, he should have been a lock for the team.
Huggan: On the GB&I side, the omission of Scottish amateur champion David Law -- a member of the host club, no less -- is almost impossible to justify. And it sounds like your man Peterson has been equally hosed. But let me repeat, these things are not unique. As soon as you get blazers involved, there is going to be a fire to put out.

Martin Dempster on David Law's omission, and at least you have to credit captain Nigel Edwards for acknowledging the "unfortunate" move and talking about the R&A committee's rationale behind their selection.

"David Law is unfortunate and his situation is accentuated by the fact he comes from Aberdeen," admitted Edwards. "If he'd had a better summer from the Lytham Trophy through to the Scottish Amateur, it might have been different, but that's stating the obvious.

"Sometimes you have to go with a hunch. I'm not saying that David wouldn't have won points for us, but myself and the selectors took an accumulation of factors into account. It was a tough call for a number of reasons and not just the obvious ones. If the teams had been picked straight off the world rankings (Law was 121 places above Irishman Alan Dunbar when the side was selected), both sides would be very different to what they are.

www.stanjames.com2011 Deutsche Bank Championship, TPC Boston
Winner Alright: Last week we tipped Vijay Singh at 80/1 at The Barclays. His third place finish saw him pay out £210 for a £10 each way bet.

Steve Stricker 16/1

Last week was Stricker’s first tournament to finish outside the top 20 in 12 but does it count given that it was only three rounds? Stricker’s record at TPC Boston makes very impressive reading. Winner in 2009 and top 10’s last year, in 2007 and 2006. In all eight of his wins since 2003 the winning score posted was 16 under or better. The winning score on this, one of the easiest layout on the Tour, has been 16 under or better for the last five years. This should play into Stricker’s now

Vijay Singh 30/1

In every interview Vijay gives at the moment he refers to his being free of back pain for the first time in ages. How long can it last? Fourth at the Wyndham and tied third last week at The Barclays, the Fijian comes here as the undisputed Barclays course champion. His last win on Tour came here in 2008, he was second in 2006 and won in 2004. If you think Singh’s back can withstand another tournament, plus all the practice this guy does, then he is your man this now

Camilo Villegas 50/1

Something seems to have clicked over the last couple of weeks for El Hombre dAranja, or the Spiderman. We know Camilo is a September man after he bagged the BMW and Tour Championship back in 2008, but rather disappointingly considering his undoubted talent, he has only won once since last year at the Honda. He hadn’t finished under par in any event since coming third at the Fedex St Jude in June but after a Top 10 at the Wyndham and tied sixth last week at The Barclays, Villegas is once again a force to be reckoned now

Brandt Snedeker 35/1

Fired a sensational 61 in the final (third) round of the Barclays last week to climb into a tie for third but I know more than most that tipping Sned to have two good weeks in a row is like giving an alcoholic a crate of whiskey and tipping him to do to the same. Tied fifth last year but could have been so much better. Of the top 10 finishers only he and Jason Day failed to break now

Jason Day 20/1

And so we come again to Jason Day. The bookies may have taken our fiver each way on Day last week, but it was a shortened event and Day did post a third round 66 to lie just outside the top 10. Six top tens so far this year including being runner up at both the Masters and the US Open. Before the aforementioned level par final round here last year Day shared or lead on his own after rounds one, two and three. If he was in the same position this time around, my guess is this seasons experiences would carry him over the line. Each way now

Best Of The Rest

The big money is being lumped on Luke Donald (12/1) who tied second here last year and shot two nice 66’s last week to ease himself back into the fray after top 10’s at the PGA and WGC. A long odds shout may be Jason Dufner (80/1), the unlucky one at the PGA. He’s had five top 10’s this season and loves this Boston track. He tied second in 2009. After some swing changes Geoff Ogilvy (60/1) is always good for a showing at The Deutsche Bank . He has three top 10’s in his last four visits here including tying second behind Charley Hoffman last now

2011 omega european masters

Alexander Noren 30/1

It has been a super season so far for Alex. Top five in Malaysia and South Korea were portents of a win which duly came at Celtic Manor in the Saab Wales Open. He won again the week after The Open on home soil at the Nordea Masters. Alex has been off since the US PGA, but I expect a strong performance from the man who won his first Tour event here in now

Matteo Manassero 20/1

The 18 year olds win at the Maybank Malaysian Open back in April may seem like a long way right now being that he hasn’t finished under par in his last four events. The Italian has being working hard on his game over the past two years and don’t be surprised to see a more assured performance in the mountains. Tied third last now

Edoardo Molinari 40/1

It has been a horrid season so far for Edoardo with just one top 10 which came back in January. However last week as defending champion in Gleneagles he posted four under for 22nd place but more importantly finished top of the combined putting stats for the week. The Italian finished second here last year and his improving form may just provide the confidence he needs to really contend this now

Lee Westwood 9/1

It may have been another major-less season for Lee but his ball striking is still top class and he can definitely contend in Crans this week. Westwood has been off since finishing eighth at the US PGA, his fifth top 10 of the season. There’s a spot in the trophy cabinet beside the Ballantine’s trophy he won back in now

Best Of The Rest

This is a co sanctioned event with the Asian Tour and Seung Yul Noh (35/1) looked very much at home on the greens last year on his way to finishing fourth. After tweaking his swing with Butch Harmon the Korean finished sixth at the Nordea Masters and 15th last week in Scotland and could be a canny each way bet. If you are looking for a long odds punt this week try Marc Warren at 100/1. He tied 11th last week in Scotland (his best result of the season) and has two top 10’s in Crans with a best of fourth in now

kelly kraft Kelly Kraft beat favourite Patrick Cantlay  two up to win the 111th US Amateur Championship at Erin Hills golf course.  Kraft came from behind on the back nine to beat the world no 1 amateur in the 36 hole final.  Cantlay was the heavily backed favourite after his recent excellent form on the main PGA Tour which included shooting a 60 at the Travelers.

Kraft received an added bonus by being named in the US Walker Team alongside Cantlay to face Tom Lewis, Paul Cutler and co in Aberdeen next month.

Kraft took a one shot to the last, and when Cantlay missed his par putt he conceded the match. 

bjorn Due to the late finish of today’s event there will be a delay posting final round highlights here until Monday morning.
Final Round Report from European Tour Below.
Thomas Björn held his nerve in a five man play-off to win the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles.
After the 40 year old carded a final round three under par 69, he was joined on 11 under by Mark Foster, who missed the chance to wrap up victory on the 18th hole, George Coetzee, Bernd Wiesberger and Pablo Larrazábal in the five hole play-off.
In sudden-death, Wiesberger and Larrazábal, with a bogey six, dropped out at the first two holes and, after the final trio all made four on the third, Foster dropped out on the next after shooting a bogey six.
Björn, fourth in the 140th Open Championship last month, holed from three feet away, but Coetzee made a 12 footer to take it into a fifth hole where the Dane sealed victory with a birdie.

Congratulations to Nicky Grant on winning the 2011 Mullingar Scratch Cup. A pair of 69’s saw the Knock man cruise to victory by five shots. Grant was a 25/1 shot before the event on paddypower. In second place was  Whitehead’s John Ross Galbraith (100/1). Walker Cup bound Paul Cutler was in a tie for third
