GOLF: And the two new golf tipsters for 2022 are…

2022 is up and running.  Well, walking anyway.  Perhaps jogging now, but definitely walking this time last week.  With a host of other “stuff” to do, I took it easy with my betting last week, not backing anything on horses or sports until the weekend, and only the PGA Profit (small loss) and Weekly Golf Value (small profit) picks on the golf.

One of the main reasons for this easing of my way in was working out which golf tipsters to follow this year.  If it’s one thing I’ve learnt, it is to take your time with this sort of decision, and with everything else that was going on I thought it wise to let the week more or less slide.  There’ll be loads of golfing action soon enough to get stuck into.

Mind you, I remember doing the exact same thing last year, prevaricating over Weekly Golf Value, and I missed a winner as a result.  But when I go on holiday over Christmas, I do make a deliberate effort to stop thinking too much about betting or anything else for that matter. There’s a huge amount to be said for switching off completely every now and again.

So, the upshot is I now have my golfing tipsters/services all lined up and ready to go.  The roll call is…drum roll…

The latter two are new to the portfolio, and a factor that did come into play is that they are both free to follow.  I thought readers of the Bet Diary who are looking to get their golf betting journey up and running could do a lot worse than follow two tipsters with a strong track record, fully reviewed by the SBC, and which won’t cost a penny to subscribe to.  A quick follow and alarm set on Twitter, and bet notifications hit the old phone.  No huge rush to get on.  What could be simpler.

Just a word on PGA Profit this past week.  In his tournament notes, Matt actually mentioned eventual winner Cam Smith as a player he would have given as a bet had the odds been available widely enough.  With only two bookmakers offering acceptable odds at the time the bet email was sent out, Matt felt it would be unfair to his members to give Smith as an official selection.  That Smith won must have been hugely frustrating for him, but to me, full credit is due for being ultra-professional and putting the interests of his members first.  I’m sure there would be many a tipster who couldn’t care a less for such things, and issued the bet knowing full well that not many would be able to get on.  Well played, Sir!
