    Default OZgolf Championships Form Guide and betting

    Listed here are latest quotes and form guide from the Betting Ring at G69.Sportspunt. Dial 1800-69LOSER

    Pricing revised in RED.

    Name, Handicap, Odds, Form.

    1. golfer69 (10) 50:1 Will struggle with the responsibility of organising event and equal favourite to hand himself the spoon at the presentations.

    Scratched -possibly pregnant.

    2. jaster (3) 5:1 Solid performer at home, may struggle with travel and hangover.

    Scratched - Termites ate his favourite driver.

    3. tez (5) 10:1 Not as many lakes as at home, but the trees will still be a problem

    8:1 Still playing crap but the weakened field improves his chances

    4. Iain (16) 8:1 past winner at Southport but who knows if he can back it up, should be a good bet for a place.

    9:1 backed up ordinary day at Brookwater, with decent score at Keperra and easier course. CTH will test him.

    5. jarro (12) 9:1 consistent performer, and will probably bolt early, May struggle on the back 9 with extra weight. (brick's, banana's in golf bag).

    12:1 has purchased more clubs in the last 3 months than rounds of golf played. desperately out of touch with his game (and mind)

    6. blakey (5) 6:1 Out of form but rises to the occasion. Odds On to play to handicap.


    11/2 Might sneak out to the driving range with flipper and snorkels.


    7. vegas (6) 10:1 Long driver but Bernhard Langer on a bad day is a better putter. Will finish in top half of the field nevertheless

    7:1 Is always up there on the tough tracks, shoudl be a breeze at CTH

    8. trung (10) 15:1 Suffering from Jet lag

    9. jono (10) 12:1 Steady, but while writing the essay on the morning round will miss tee time in the afternoon.

    10. andyp (14) 7:1 One of those guys who you just know might pull one out of the bag, but can he do it twice.

    10:1 Just not looking good at the moment. not playing too well either

    11. wille (19) 15:1 Unknown quality. Will he be overawed in presence of such great Ozgolfers

    12. eags (15) 12:1 Streaky player, expect a crash in the AM and a blinder in the PM

    13. choppa (?) 25:1 Nick says it all.

    20:1 Steady but recent handicap reduction will hurt him

    14. damo (?) 20:1 cant concentrate on golf due to continuous discussions with Golfer69 over prices of eggs in china

    15:1 but gets booted off the course for playing in a singlet.

    15. golfgirl (?) 15:1 with that handicap always have to be a chance

    16. drunken (19) 25:1 see choppa

    17. nudgee (10) 20:1 Sold all his clubs and forgot to keep a set for himself. borrows a set of chinese copied callaways and gets a rash.

    12:1 Getting some form at the right time

    18. senecio (9) 15:1 long drives wont be an advantage on this thinking mans course.

    19. mezza (16) 12:1 dark horse

    20. andylo (27) 50:1 Still doesnt know which clubs (or swing) he will use by the time of the championships.

    21. MacLeod (15) 50:1 still on the honeymoon hangover.

    22. Stoney (1) 4:1 Low handicapper but consistent performer. will have to cope with constant crap stirring by more experienced ozgolfers.

    Scratched - coulnt handle the pressure

    23. Kee (27) 33:1 will remain distracted by Andylo talking about his gorgeous girlfreind all the time.

    24. gaz (10) 25:1 will star in the AM round, but misses too many holes while checking Ebay auctions on his wireless connected laptop.

    25. Spiersy (1) 8:1 By the time he has worked out the Slope rating and index he will be on the 8th hole. Slow start but will come home with a burst.

    Scratched - he saw that purple shirt and thought no way.

    26. onewood (7) 3:1 Outright favourite - Super solid performer and a long straight driver, otherwise known as the ozgolf mini bus.

    Scratched - hair appointment.

    27. DougK(-) 4:1 the man with the underrated swing and the technical knowledge can also play - this is the course he learned to play on.

    Looks like its going to be an interesting day with both Champions and the Spoon to be hotly contested.

    Cheers Dicky, ya prick. Talk about a vote of no confidence.

    My tips:-

    Onewood - best nett
    Stoney - best gross.

    Super funny stuff, Blakey.

    10. andyp (14) 7:1 One of those guys who you just know might pull one out of the bag, but can he do it twice.
    I liked my odds of 25:1 given earlier in the year. I'd still take 7:1.

    Good thinking, Iain, coz I wouldn't mind putting some money on damo at 20:1 now.
    Choppa is good money at his odds.
    There has been a few scratchings too.

    No offence Kev, but a couple of these 20 hcapers are capable of going 10 better on a good day. Not sure that even you could match them if that happens.

    As for the gross, now that stoney is out, you'd have to back the teaching pro and/or the local low marker.

    Vegas, I'd say that he is no chance, because he isn't playing unfortunately.

    Vegas, your dreamin....... according to Golf Link I have only played 3 comp rounds in 3mths, and a debacle at the Glades somewhere amongst that. Plus i am going through a swing reconstruction, and havent hit a ball in 4 weeks.

    On the other hand, DougK has played about 4 rounds this year and his worst has been even Par. I'll back him to win the Double, with 72pts.

    I dont think the 20 odd handicappers will be able to put two rounds together, unless one huge score is posted,

    I'm not buying it. You're a consistent player, regardless of the frequency of games.

    On a separate issue, has dougk got amateur status?

    And he's not an active member on Ozgolf.

    It's not a question of whether he can play, it's a question of whether he can be crowned the OZgolf Champion. It doesn't seem right.

    BTW thanks for slipping my odds out. Two weeks off after playing in a matchplay FINAL, and I play a few over my handicap, and out they go. You haven't got money on me have you?

    play/win I meant the same thing (whats thepoint of playing if you cant win). anyway its a good question (can of worms) Andy, perhaps something for the committee to work out.

    Consider how many others are playing that rarely post or play in other ozgolf days. How small do we want the field to get?

    The "committee" is looking into it.
