Only one place to start this week, and that’s with the magnificent Weekly Golf Value which tipped its second winner in two weeks as Rory McIlroy (20/1) eased to what was a relatively comfortable win in the end over in Las Vegas. That’s the service’s 12th winner this year, which is quite incredible really, when you think about the odds they tip at. Their email to members today almost sounded as if they themselves are slightly surprised by the level of success they’ve enjoyed this year. I may be imagining that.
The cherry on top of the cake was Keith Mitchell finishing in the places at 250/1 (some will have got 300/1). Mitchell was actually five shots in the lead at halfway, although I have to admit I didn’t get my hopes up too high. Not many 300/1 shots successfully make all the running and there was a heck of a field stacked up behind.
All told, WGV has pushed on to a new profit high for the year, as has the golf portfolio as a whole. Lovely stuff.
I have to feel for Golf Insider. They seem destined to come close without getting to smoke the cigar at the moment, another 2nd place finish (to McIlroy) to go along with the two they had last week. They have just dipped below their previous low mark for 2021, but it could all have been so much different.
Nothing at all by way of returns this week from PGA Profit/PGA Profit Europe.
