ive been bettin shit loads on golf recently

mostly on mr woods

funny that i only got into it last year cos thats when i discovered "live betting" and nothing else was on so i started betting on it, and funnily enough enjoying it. lame i know :S

europe favourites but ive bet £20 on the US, cos of a better return, and in cuch an event u can never really guess who's gonna win

anybody care to explain how scoring at this event works?

it took me until day 2 of the HHSBC match play to figure out the scoring system"

relating to the ryder cup, theres someting about a "fourball"

Fourball is when they all play the hole separately and take the best score of the team. I think :/

Friday and Sat morning they play foursomes. Which means 'one ball, alternate shots'.

Friday and Sat afternoon they play four ball (both players play, best score to count)

Sunday is singles.

1 point for a win, 0.5 for half and nothin for lose.28 points up for grabs in total, we only need 14 to win as we won it last year. There are 12 players on each team, but not all players play on friday and sat.

I think this is all right off the top of my head Eye-wink

They're playing fourball this morning.

I am betting heavily against Tiger for the first two days- he's dodgy over 18 holes and has a very poor Ryder Cup record, also. Other than that, I'm undecided.

great atmosphere off the first tee this morning. Shame about the weather, looks like it's going to delay the singles until Monday which will be a huge anti-climax Sad
