Great weekend! Fantastic weekend for Chelsea, Norwich and West Brom as all won their matches winning me 78 pence in the process! Wish I had done a treble now.

Flushed with that success I had a bet “in running” on the Players Golf Championship at Sawgrass. I gambled ÂŁ2 on young Aussie Adam Scott to win when he was 4 shots ahead with just 6 holes to play at odds of 4/11. He managed it, but only by one shot having put his approach to the 18th hole in the water. He had to drop the ball then chip and putt to win or enter a play-off with Irish golfer Padraig Harrington who made a late charge and had finished on 11 under par. Chip and put though he did with great relief all round. Adam won $1,500,000 – I won 73p but my cheer was louder than his as he sank the putt!
