Remarkable stuff from Ross Fisher these past three days at the Nordea Masters in Stockholm - not a single dropped shot in 54 holes:

Round 1: 70 (-2) 2 birdies, 16 pars
Round 2: 68 (-4) 4 birdies, 14 pars
Round 3: 65 (-7) 7 birdies, 11 pars

And, as I write, he's still only in 2nd place, 3 shots behind leader Lee Westwood.  :o

More importantly, has he sorted out his pre shot routine?

I imagine he is under massive pressure and stress to get on with it

Ross Fisher has just had his first bogey - at his 60th hole.  He followed it up with a birdie on his 61st, mind... :)

EDIT:  Bogey at the 62nd - the man is falling to pieces...!  :o  ;D

US Open anyone? :)

Had a couple of small fun bets and a "saver" with Boylesports to keep my interest up:

Woods - Win @ 17/2  (I know there's better about but can't be arsed with multiple fund deposits)

Colt Knost - First Round Leader e/w @ 200/1

Rose / Pelle Edberg in the St Omer Open - Win e/w double @ 616/1 (28/1 x 22/1)

::)  :)

Well, Edberg has finished tied 4th, so the bet is still alive.  I need Rose to have a good last round to make a return as he's currently three shots off a place as it stands.

QuoteWoods - Win @ 17/2

Looked to be going very nicely as joint leader after two rounds, but a bad third round has put him back.  Still hope, though.

Westwood on the wings now

Maybe today is the day for him

Go get them
Mon the Jambos


Surprise winner then and the bookies will be laughing.

Very odd interloper at the presentation too


Yes, didn't see Webb Simpson mentioned at all on any tipping sites.

However, oddschecker tipped Michael Thompson for a top five finish at 200/1 :o and a top ten finish at 33/1.  It must be declared, though, that they gave a multitude of other tips that failed spectacularly.

That's the last 9 majors won by first time major winners then.

this really tells me 2 things:

1) The equipment is getting better and better (to good?)
2) there are a lot of great players out there these days

wonder if time is running out for Westie.... :-\

Irish open back in N Ireland after decades away, lovely course but as usual the weather looks like being horrible. Looks back to something like his best this year so will chance a few bob on Padraig Harrington as he likes these seaside courses going by his past victories on them.

I've always wanted to play Royal Portrush as it was once an Open venue....a nice weekender to include Royal County Down sounds lovel - a bit pricey though

McDowell is a good tip would be Paul Lawrie - he's having a good year and likes a links course... he is a bit dour and he's a Jock though... ;)

Aberdeen invented dour.
