I wish more books did those Top 10's. I am just not a BetUs fan. If 5dimes did them I would deposit with them to go with tennis. Good luck this week, going to be early mornings to watch this week. This is the week you turn it around.

Calc finished T60 at St. Andrews in 2005....Lehman T23...Lehman may have better vibes there and has played better lately.

Thx for sharing....

I like both of those man...go for it!

I still don't think Tiger is all there...although he has two Top 5's in the Majors this year. And he's tore up St. Andrews in the past, but that WAS the past....

Here's some European Tour stuff I thought was interesting. You can get an idea of who's been playing well overseas. I'm really looking hard at some of these Euro guys. Local knowledge is the key to St. Andrews:

  • Multiple Winners  
    Charl Schwartzel - Africa Open and Joburg Open
    Graeme McDowell - The Celtic Manor Walers Open, US Open Championship
    Miguel Angel Jiménez - Omega Dubai Desert Classic, Alstom Open de France

 

  • Most Top 5 Finishes 
    Rhys Davies 5
    Charl Schwartzel 4
    Rober Rock 4
    Edoardo Molinari 4
    Francesco Molinari 4
    Martin Kaymer 3
    Louis Oosthuizen 3
    Lee Westwood 3
    James Morrison 3
    Fredrik Andersson Hed 3
    Luke Donald 3
    Graeme McDowell 3
    Alajandro Canizares 3
    Danny Willett 3
    Raphael Jacquelin 3
    Stephen Gallacher 3

 

  • Most Consecutive Cuts Made (Current)  
    Charl Schwartzel - 17 (from 2009 Madrid Masters to 2010 The Barclays Scottish Open)


  • Course Records  
    Martin Erlandsson, 64 (-8) (equal) - South African Open Championship
    Tetsuji Hiratsuka, 62 (-10) - Avantha Masters
    Louis Oosthuizen, 64 (-8) (Blue) - Trophée Hassan II    
    Rhys Davies, 64 (-8) (Blue) (equal) - Trophée Hassan II    
    Paul Waring, 62 (-8) - Open de Andalucia de Golf
    Thongchai Jaidee 64 (-8) - Volvo China Open
    Kim Do-hoon 64 (-8) (equal) - Volvo China Open
    James Kingston 65 (-5) - Iberdrola Open Cala Millor Mallorca
    Christian Cevaer 65 (-5) (equal) Iberdrola Open Cala Millor Mallorca
    Robert Karlsson 62 (-9) - BMW PGA Championship
    Graeme Storm 64 (-8) - Madrid Masters
    Alvaro Quiros  64 (-8) - Madrid Masters
    José Manuel Lara  64 (-8) - Madrid Masters
    Rhys Davies 62 (-9) - The Celtic Manor Wales Open
    Damien McGrane 64 (-8) (equal) - Estoril Open de Portugal
