The PGA Tour: The Memorial. At Muirfield. In Dublin. In Ohio

Sandy Lane previews this week’s USPGA event, the Memorial at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio   Watching Robert MacIntyre’s maiden PGA Tour victory in last week’s Canadian Open was genuinely refreshing. With his rugged-featured Dad on the bag, the shy Scotsman proved to be a natural front-runner, and his humility shone out in the post-tournament […]

RBC Canadian Open

The Canadian Open Championship is nomadic. This year, it returns to the classic Hamilton course, which last staged the event in 2019. This picturesque arena was established in 1904. It was designed by Harry Colt, who also set up the fabled Wentworth course in England. It is a Par-70 parkland course, featuring small undulating poa annua greens. […]

PGA Tour: Charles Schwab Challenge

Firstly, hearty congratulations to Xander Schauffle for his magnificent triumph at Valhalla last week. He had been my headline selection for the Masters, but Heigh Ho! Xander’s victory was made even sweeter because he held off a huge last-round surge by a player from the LIV circuit, Bryson DeChambeau. Onwards and upwards to this week’s […]

Sunday Golf, Irish racing, Secret shredding

With not much doing on the social front, attention has turned to resolving some issues in the office – such as a mountain of papers. The Hon is on shredding duty, as she is rightly concerned that information is power, and in the days of paper recycling and special bins, a walk around Notting Hill […]

Cashless though not quite potless – pray to St Jude in Golf.

One would be naive to believe that the Government which effectively “owns” Natwest, is not in the enviable position of both being able to manipulate or pressurise Natwest into doing precisely what it wants the bank to do. But as is constantly explained, their/our shareholding is at “arms-length” and thus the bank’s activities are in […]

An abundance of sporting riches – but no time to enjoy

As the rest of Europe fries and the unwary make their way to an airport in order to stay inside but abroad, a few of us will have made plans that require very little effort. Imagine if you will, that it is Thursday. You were awake at 6:30 and you were able to listen as […]

The Master 2023

I think we managed to get away with the weekend’s tips, showing a tiny profit, despite not having the winner of the Lincoln. Meanwhile, the Australian GP seemed to be in a never-ending crash, interspersed with various restarts. Don’t watch it apart from the last five laps if you haven’t seen it. The chaos and […]

It was the best of times… but it was no longer the Aga of reason

In the Shires, Tory women are already preparing in their six-oven Agas the cakes and biscuits consumed during the hustings, as Rishi and whoever turns up for the triannual Tory leadership elections. They and their cohorts will promise to deliver whatever is perceived as locally vital and promise to be either more woke or more […]

USPGA

The first round gets underway in about an hour, and you would have had this sooner, but I fell into bad company yesterday at that very splendid pub The Queen’s Arms in East Garston run by the inestimable Freddie Tulloch. Whilst I started lunch with a head nod to the current calorie-conscious diet, it transpired […]

The US Masters 2020

There is something incredibly beautiful about Augusta National Golf Club on TV – albeit that this year the competition is almost seven months late. We shall see the place in all its autumnal glory, a panoply of colours reds, golds, evergreens,  and of course, all the famous holes like Amen Corner preened to within an […]

HELP KEEP THE RACEWEB VOICE ALIVE

Annual domain registrations, site hosting, software licences, form guides, research costs and a host of other minor and but not inconsequential outgoings are the burden for all website owners.

Even the smallest donation can make the difference between the Off and On switch.

It’s not just that once in a while we actually prove accurate, and you possibly make a bit of pocket money, but occasionally, we might perhaps suggest a view that could possibly change someone’s mind. For the better.

That’s a lot of Maybes and Possiblies, but sometimes we have to try and change a plan or encourage them to move a mountain, and if that means we make you smile, or shout with anger, or shake with laughter, then Huzzah!

That’s your donation that did that. Thank You.
