Sorry to break the illusion Shanks, but I do all my gamblin' online these days. It's easier, cheaper and the odds are better! Oh, and as you will see, I think your picks are spot on!

Alas, all of the loopholes have been closed and we can't gamble online here in the States anymore.

Ah yes, and golf is such a predictable game. That's why Zach and Angel were picked by all of us golf gurus.

Els has a chance, sure. But I don't like the way he's been putting all year, excluding the final round at Loch Lomond.

There are not many things more difficult than golf wagering, I'm almost glad the politicians shut me off. Not really though. The government shouldn't be in the business of saving us from ourselves to say nothing about what they did to the shareholders of the public gambling companies in the U.K. As a life long dog player my observation is 99% of the regulars are reasonable people that gamble for fun and lose less than most people would spend on a hobby like golf or fishing. Good gamblers know the best way to wager is to bet a little trying to win a lot. So at the dog track everybody plays trifectas and superfectas. In golf betting I always played 100+ to 1 shots using each way bets. It is a fact of life that psychologically people are happier winning small amounts frequently than winning large amounts infrequently. But given that the best punters are naturally skeptical people that would never play the chalk. We're looking for a black swan.

Excellent observations, OS. The gov't should mind it's own damn business. If they did, they'd want the tax revenue from legal gambling operations that they are not getting from the illegal & overseas operations. Usually their arguments will center on those very few problem gamblers. But guess what? those people are already using alternate means to gamble their lives away. Certainly the hypocrisy of gov't-run lotteries doesn't stop them from making their silly arguments. Anyone who's ever been in a 7-11 has seen somebody of obviously little means betting $10-20 a day on the numbers.

Results: Only my brother cashed a ticket. He had a little bit on Els to finish in the top 5.
