Not another second, a watery grave to the hopes of a big win, and introducing Golf Betting Club.

News first of a new addition to the Bet Diary portfolio – SBC Premium Service Golf Betting Club.  You can read a lot more about the service, how it works, the people behind it etc, here.  You can also listen to an insightful interview with the two brothers who run GBC with Pete in the latest SBC Podcast.

I’ll be  writing more about it shortly, with first impressions and such like, but for now, suffice to say I saw Golf Betting Club as providing something different – a slightly different angle to my golf betting, and that is In-Play tips.  Sure, they do give out pre-tournament advice but historically a strong source of profit has been derived from bets sent following the end of each round.  Like I say, a different angle.

Not the most auspicious of starts last week, with my missing a winning final round 2-ball pick, but I think that now I’m into the swing of things (see what I did there!) that sort of thing won’t happen again.

The week as a whole has been a profitable one but it hasn’t exactly swung the needle too much.  I’ve gone from being just shy of break even for the month to just a shade above break even.  As I mentioned last week, it could all have been so much different had second placed finishers every week so far just found (literally) one or two shots to win instead.  Well,  guess what?  Last week was another painful one – yet another second placer on the DPWT Tour.  That however, wasn’t the most painful golfing result.  Over in the States on Sunday evening, we had Sam  Burns leading the way with two holes to go, before hitting his tee shot on the 17th into the water, and then hitting his tee shot on the 18th…err…into the water.  What. A. Nob.

Poor time of it for my Bookiebashing Racing Tracker inspired Lucky 15s recently, and am currently standing at -12% bank “growth”.  Nothing unusual in this.  Have suffered much worse drawdowns in the past and then one Lucky 15 takes you to an all time profit high.  I do feel that lack of turnover is exaggerating short term variance though.  Need it to warm up a bit and the weather to play ball so not so many meetings are abandoned.

The Ying to that Yang though,  has been the various Value Bets taken from the Bookiebashing Bet Tracker.  Win Both Halves bets have gone on a bit of a tear – well, four wins  from the last six bets.  Aberdeen on Friday night was ridiculous value when I struck my bet, which meant a relatively hefty stake.  Happy days.  12.7% bank growth and 47% ROI, which is frankly stupidly high and unsustainable.  That figure will come down.  If it doesn’t, I’m retiring by Christmas!

Interestingly, Bookiebashers released a blog post a few days ago about the WBH bets after receiving a question about them.  The post explores the relationship between the Expected and Recorded results – Worth a read/watch.

Back tomorrow.
