    Since Brett Rumford(80/1) won Ballantines in April of 2013 (followed by 40/1 the next week), I canít recall anyone with greater odds carrying my cash across the finish line. And probably only 1 of maybe 10 wagers Iíve ever cashed at odds of 100/1 or greater since 2001 . . . Also enhances a definite propensity for above average weeks immediately after one of the four men's majors, when the capping motivation isn't always there, but the ANGLES and INFORMATION are at a peak . . . Getting the job finished on a Saturday was a nice touch . . . Very pleased.

    Thanks, BZ. It's good for the motivation, and the account balance.

    With the exception of a couple of winners at Colonial, I don’t remember having much success with events in Texas. Looking for an edge (and encouraged by the taste of a big score last week), I started my capping early this week. So far my Texas team includes Jimmy Walker(55/1) and Ryan Palmer(55/1), and I can’t shake a liking for Bill Haas(66/1) . . . In early capping for Morocco, I started by thinking I was nicely encouraged that Matteo Manassero had a pretty good and consistent week at a birdie-fest venue I didn’t think would suit him (so much so that I passed on a play last week I otherwise might have liked after the three time Masters participant spent recent weeks far removed from those proceedings). But then I got to wondering whether there even is a venue that might suit Matteo these days, and maybe spacious and forgiving off the tee is his current ideal, and that his low place has taken him to places so dark and fragile that coveting for a return for the big stages of Augusta is far removed from his mindset. In any event, while winning seems unlikely in the immediate future, he has been taking some steps forward that has me expecting he is due and overdue for a serious jump beyond his season best finish of 30th place. Then finding that his 25th birthday is on Thursday, that sealed my fate so that there was really no chance I’d pass on some 200/1 e.w. speculation while dreaming of a back-to-back score after Steve Flesch at 100/1.

    Players:

    Outrights:

    Zach Johnson(50/1) e.w.
    - - In this event itís fair to say I need reasons for not backing Zach (and itís fair to say that over the long haul that approach has not really yielded dividends). But as it is, Iím not seeing reasons here and now to abandon ship . . . Iím on him at 80/1, but Iíll post at the currently available 50/1.

    Jason Day(14/1) e.w.
    - - Nothing greatly excites me about this selection, but Iím not picking up this winning marker.

    Phil Mickelson(33/1) e.w.
    - - Since Bay Hill Iíve had my eye on Tiger for this event, but I soured a bit after last week, and I donít see a Mickelson pairing doing him any favors, IMO now needing to emerge after a full four days in the cauldron . . . On the other hand, Phil definitely surprised me with no significant rust last week, and he has definitely found some answers throughout his bag with staying power. IMO Lefty has also demonstrated good, selective use of his driver in the past on the holes at Sawgrass where that troublesome club will be asked to produce. And I can see the Tiger/Rickie grouping as a stepping stone to being nicely engaged into the weekend.

    Phil(33/1) e.w. and Jason Day(18/1) are now carrying my cash for the stern U.S. Open examination at Shinnecock.

    Henrik Stenson(28/1) e.w.
    - - Appeals to me off his best ever Masters.

    Lucas Glover(175/1) e.w.
    - -

    Billy Horschel(55/1) e.w.
    - - Streaky, with an excellent opportunity for making some noise at a place he wants it ďbetter than most.Ē

    Ian Poulter(60/1) e.w.
    - - I canít say no over others on my short off list showing the likes of Tommy Fleetwood, Kevin Kisner, Alex Noren, Cameron Smith, Brian Harman, Pat Perez, Adam Hadwin, and Nick Watney.


    Matchups (Tournament):

    Day(-110) over Spieth
    Mickelson(-110) over Garcia
    Mickelson(-110) over Woods
    Z.Johnson(+105) over Simpson
    Stenson(-110) over Rose

    - - I'm satisfied with the prices on Grace and Leishman, and maybe Hossler, but the rest of
    the prices seem crap, some crappier than others (Mahan), including the crap I passed on.
