It was an excruciating week for the European Ryder Cup team in Hazeltine. For Lee Westwood it was particularly painful.
Sandy Jamieson is either a golfing genius, or he should be locked up in the golf asylum. We're pretty sure he's the former, but you'll have to see for yourself. This week put a proper stroke on your putts, with the aid of a rubber chicken!
The resident GolfPunk Tipster, Nick Fleming, picked 2nd place Julian Suri at last week’s event in Morocco. We are hoping he will go one better this week with his selections for the Wells Fargo Championship from Quail Hollow, Charlotte, North Carolina and the China Open. Both events will be on Sky and look to provide some good entertainment.
Two events this week. It's the Oman Open and the Honda Open. Here's where the action is......
This week we focus on the Saudi International and the Phoenix Waste Management.
So close last weekend with Danny Lee 109/1 and J J Spaun 76/1 finishing 2nd and 3rd in the Mayakoba Classic In Mexico to Matt Kuchar! Two events this week, the DP world Tour Championship and the RSM Classic.
Perfect Your Putting with Golf Nurse Carly Booth
Great to win the Wyndham with our 2 points selection Brandt Snedeker at 26/1. We also had CT Pan 2nd at 89/1. Two events this week but we leave the Czech event alone and concentrate on the first of the FedEx play off events the Northern Trust.
The PGA championship is the last major tournament of the season, soon to be followed by the Fed Ex play offs!! The career grand slam event only achieved by 5 golfers Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus, Gary Player, Ben Hogan and Gene Sarazen, while Bobby Jones won a true golf grand slam in 1930.
What a great last day at the Open last Sunday, there were at least 12 possible winners with 6 holes to go and it's fair to say Tiger is back!!! The winner Francesco Molinari by 2 shots from Justin Rose but it was Tiger that had the crowd on its feet!!!
Two events this week the Scottish Open and the John Deere Classic. We concentrate on the Scottish Open, the last event before The Open. Two near misses last week in Ireland with both Jon Rahm and Andy Sullivan placed!!
It’s the Players Championships in the USA; I haven’t tipped Tiger Woods but I feel he is close to winning soon.
Everyone wants to be able to hit a draw. Especially on purpose. Well, as Blair shows us, it's actually not that hard...
Brilliant first European tour success for our selection 70/1 Eddie Pepperell at the Qatar Masters, it looked until the last few holes that one of our selections Tommy Fleetwood or Alex Noren would prevail over in USA but the brilliance of Justin Thomas won the day !!
Here's one amazing putt. Skill or luck? You decide.
Foresight Sports, market leader in golf launch monitors and simulation technology, has added a new putting dimension to its ground-breaking GCQuad launch monitor that now produces data for every club in the bag.

Perfect your pitching with Paul Lyons, ex-European Tour player who now, along with Dennis Pugh, runs The Golf College...
There's no point standing there like a berk with all the conviction of an epiliectic octopus. As Paul Lyons shows us, you gotta set up with intent if you want to hit perfect chip shots...
Ryder Cup legend Ian Poulter gives us GolfPunks a great tip on how best to warm up before hitting the course...
Scaredy Cat Scaredy Cat, sitting on the, errmm, golf mat. No need to be afraid anymore. Ian Poulter is here to show us how to attain true bravery on the tee. No matter what is in front of you...
The old putting into a cup caper, eh? Blair swings into town to give us a great putting tip.
Cure that slice by figuring out your sequencing. Get the club moving in to out. Honestly, it even worked for our Editor who's been in floods of tears since. Very grateful Mr Jeff...
Halve your handicap: De-loft for better iron shots: GP's Sultan Of Swing Jeff Ritter shows us how Seve would take loft off his irons in order to win lots of majors...
Great iron shots every time: This is a great tip for making sure you keep your arms compact through the swing. Compact arms = crisp, powerful iron shots.
Australian YouTubers, How Ridiculous, managed to sink an incredible 120.6 metre (135.67 yard) putt, which is now the new Guinness World Record for the longest putt ever in a non–tournament.
It's all about the flow. Jonathan Yarwood has spent a lot of time with Scotty Cameron and his learnings are right here for you GolfPunkers. We don't want thanking. Just money. Cheers.
Putting maestro Dave Stockton has been hard at work with his son Dave Stockton Junior. And what have they been up to? Well, building a lovely artificial putting green emblazoned with the Augusta National logo.
Great LIGHTBULB MOMENT tip from GolfPunk and Haywards Heath Golf Club Coach James Verrall. This will really help you make the most of your winter range time, and have you ready to hit the fairway running in 2017.
Lee Westwood, who had a bit of a nightmare on the greens at the Ryder Cup, has hired an ex–snooker player as his putting coach. And he already seems to be making a difference.
Bryson Dechambeau, the golf scientist, is experimenting with putting side–saddle! Is he serious?
Major-winners, including Rory McIlroy, have been turning to Southport-based Tour coach Phillip Kenyon to transform their putting. He is using golf’s new secret putting weapon – the Green Stage, by Zen.
Jeff Ritter explains how to find the perfect putting grip
What is Rory putting with, and who is helping him improve his stroke?
A new era of putting practice has arrived with the launch of Green Stage, the adjustable putting platform from Sheffield-based putting specialists Zen Green Technology.
Rumours have been flying about that Rory is splitting with renowned putting coach Dave Stockton. One thing that definitely has happened is he's changed his putting grip. Rory's gone left hand under. When you look at his stats for this season, it's little wonder he's making changes...
The season is over...time to relax. We wish! The Race to Dubai may have finished on Sunday but the new season on the European Tour kicks off on Thursday at the Leopard Creek Country Club in South Africa for the Alfred Dunhill Championship. Fancy placing a bet? Well these guys may be worth taking a punt on.
This weeks top betting tips from the elusive, mysterious Golf Spiv!!!
Day one from the TipSport Golf Masters in Czech Republic where Becky Morgan fires an incredible -9 opening round. That's just 62 blows...
Great to deliver a winner again for GolfPunk readers; nervy stuff but Paul Casey held on to win at 26/1 at last week’s Valspar Championship!!
Great to see Rory McIlroy winning the Players Championship last week. Our selection Tommy Fleetwood led well into the final round but faded to finish 5th. Two televised events this week but the EuropeanTour event low key so we concentrate on the Valspar Championship on PGA tour.
It's back. They say that golf's '5th major' is the hardest tournament to win. It has the best field of the entire year and it all kicks off today at Sawgrass. Here we have all the best tips to turn your pennies into pounds...
This week's golf betting tips from the legendary Nick Fleming. It's the Omega Desert Classic and the Farmers aka Flutter Central...
So close last week at the Sony Open with Andrew Putnam 69/1 leading until the final stages eventually finishing 2nd to Matt Kuchar. But now I focus on the Desert Classic.
Great to start the year with a winner in Hawaii with our 2 point selection Xander Schauffele winning at 25/1 from our other selection Gary Woodland at 29/1 by 1 shot having equalled the course record in the final round!!! A profit of 42 points.
Happy New Year to all GolfPunk followers. Just the one event this week in Hawaii, it’s a small but select field in which I do fear the two favourites, DustinJohnson and Jon Rahm the biggest hitters in the field but with wind forecast I think and hope there is value to be had elsewhere??? 9 points risked.
GolfPunk selections at last week's Hong Kong Open finished 3rd Jason Schrivner 37/1, tied 6th Rafa Cabrera Bello 12/1 and Shubhanker Sharma 45/1. Three events this week....
A great result for GolfPunk readers with Danny Willett winning the DP World tour Championship at 139/1. He actually drifted on Betfair to 179/1 so hopefully GolfPunk readers got the best odds??
Two events this week, the Nedbank from South Africa and Mayakoba from Mexico, part of the PGA tour.
Golf depends on the weather. The winter months bring on the “Shall I, shan’t I” feeling. It’s rarely too hot to play a round but in the winter months, the wind, rain and snow can put us off playing. The expression “fair weather golfer” has become a little derisory; c’mon, a bit of wind and rain won’t hurt you! But, ice and snow… hmmm.
1st and 2nd for GolfPunk readers at last week’s HSBC event!!! For most of the tournament Tony Finau 29/1 looked like winning, but our other selection Xander Schauffle 56/1 beat him in a play off !!!
The winning run came to an end last weekend with Sergio Garcia winning in Spain and Brooks Koepka in South Korea, both were favs so not on my radar for betting purposes! But we did get Ashley Chester placed at 74/1 in Andalucía and Gary Woodland 2nd at 40/1.
A 4-week winning streak doesn't come easy. Nick Fleming studies the form, the course, previous year performers, the conditions, everything. If you fancy a flutter, you've come to the right place...
Just the one event this week and note it’s on the red button on Sky Golf TV.
Time to stop hitting the cross bar, I am going for value this week more than ever as the top players are under performing??? It looks like Horschel started last week when he withdrew due to Sinusitis !!
Close but no cigar last week with Tony Finau 59/1 coming 2nd and Adam Scott 5th at 54/1. It's the Dell Technologies in the USA, the second of the FedEx playoff events. We will just concentrate on USA.
Two events this week - the Irish Open and the Greenbrier in the USA. We will focus on the Irish Open, which has attracted a great field and is the ideal warm up for the Open in 2 weeks.
Francesco Molinari produced a masterclass on the greens with his latest Bettinardi putter, holing more than 120 feet of putts during the final round to win his maiden PGA Tour title with an eight-shot victory at the Quicken Loans National.
Mullinax 289/1! Amazing goings on at the US Open over the weekend, Brooks Koepka wins for second year in succession and Phil Mickleson try's playing crazy golf on the putting green!!! Our best selection Tony Finau was placed 5th at 109/1.
Phil Mickelson has apologised, and says he is "embarrassed and disappointed" after he putted a moving ball during the US Open.
Here's Jeff Ritter's tips for how to win the US Open. Pay attention Justin Rose, Brooks Koepka, and Dustin Johnson. You might need these thoughts in your bag tomorrow.
Jeff Ritter helps you get out of the deep rough - a crucial play if you want to win the 118th US Open. Listen up people.
A welcome return to one of the worlds great golf courses, it’s been slightly redesigned by widening the fairways but it’s still a monster with the prospect for lightning fast greens. Immense skill required to even contend on this great course so I expect the top players to monopolise !!!
Great to have the winner of BMW PGA at Wentworth in Francesco Molinari 24/1 and Brandon Grace 16/1 and Kiradech Aphibarnrat 59/1 placed. And now it is time for Memorial and the Italian Open.
Good to be back with a winner last week as Webb Simpson at 80/1 wins the Players Championship at Sawgrass. The European event this week is the Belgium knockout hosted by Thomas Pieter's and his wife, it's too much of a novelty event to get involved with, so we concentrate on the Byron Nelson in the USA.
Here are Nick Fleming's golf tips for this week's Wells Fargo Championship from Quail Hollow in North Carolina.
So near to a 99/1 winner last week with Van Rooyen and Bjork 94/1, who both got to the joint lead in the final round only to lose to a determined Levy who is trying to get in Ryder cup squad!! This week we will give the New Orleans event a miss as its pairs and I am fairly sure not taken too seriously?? So we concentrate on the China Open!!
Last week Jon Rahm won the Open de Espana from our selection Paul Dunne who led for almost three rounds!! In USA the RBC Heritage was won by Japanese Satoshi Kodaira please note our selection Adam Hadwin was a non-runner, so you get your money back.
A great finish to this season's first major the Masters resulted in Patrick Reed winning by one shot from Rickie Fowler and a resurgent Jordan Spieth!!! Two events this week the Spanish Open and RBC Heritage from USA.
The Masters – the year's first major and one of the truly great events. Won last year by Sergio Garcia (tipped by yours truly!) Most bookmakers paying out each way on top 10 including Betfair exchange. If you have a few accounts shop around. This week I am advising each way top 10 with a few more selections than normal.
It's the final event before the Masters!!! Best odds for Houston Open...
Great stuff from Rory McIlroy at last weekend's Arnold Palmer Invitational, he must have a great chance at this week's match play event, as has last year's winner Dustin Johnson. But we will try and look outside the two hot Favourites. This week's other event is low key, so we concentrate on the Dell Match play.

Hold on a minute, a golf tipster who just won the whole kitten kaboodle? And he's done it before? Crikey. We have to admit weren't on this last week but we have learned our lesson. If you'd followed Fleming Golf Tips for the Pheonix and Maybank you'd be considerably happier this week. He called both winners. Here are this week's predictions...

Getting your Golfing year off to a flying start is important but let’s face it: January is mostly short days and rock-bottom temperatures. Which probably makes it the best month to plan your time in the sun.
Kelly Rohrbach may be just about the best thing that could happen to golf. Not only does she smash it but she's also very famous for being a model and actress in Baywatch. So everybody, and I mean everybody, wins
Tiger Woods has written a long blog post, which confirms that he’s not living in pain anymore and is feeling strong. And that Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas have been coming over to his house for putting competitions.
Lee Westwood, host of the 2017 British Masters, stepped on to the hallowed turf of St James’ Park this weekend to take part in a Provision Events designed putting challenge in front of 52,000 Newcastle United fans.
Glen Oaks Golf Club in Old Westbury, New York is hosting its first PGA event and what a better introduction than the playoffs? It is, of course, a nightmare for the punter as we have no idea about players previous record at the course. It’ll be new to the players and of course, new to us.
Beef has been treating drinkers at a local New Orleans bar to free putting tips ahead of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. And Beef offered to buy all of The Bulldog Uptown's drinkers a round if anyone could make a putt along the bar floor and into a glass.

The Spiv has spoken! Check out all the best betting tips for the PGA Championship here!!!
Who does the Spiv fancy at the US Open? It's going to take a streetfighter to get the job done this week, not the purest ball striker. The Spiv highlights his best value E/W bets.
The ISPS HANDA Pressure Putt Showdown will feature players with celebrity partners, competing for a £10,000 prize, which will go to charity.
The Spiv won last week with money on Charley Hoffman, so who is he backing to bring home the bacon this time around?
The Spiv backed Danny Willett to win the Masters winner and he forgot to tell us. This week we've got all his tips, follow his lead to win some cash at the RBC Heritage.
This week I'm skipping the Shell Houston Open, and betting on the first Major of the season. It’s the LPGA's ANA Inspiration, formerly known as the Kraft Nabisco. The first Women’s Major of the year.
The Spiv is back with the inside track....The WGC World Match Play is one of my favourite events of the year. I love Match Play. The only problem is that there isn’t enough of it around on the Tour. This makes it difficult to place a bet. An out of form player with a strong competitive nature can easily win this one.
