The Jeremy Chapman Experiment

Jeremy Chapman is a tipping star. He has a phenomenal record of tipping big priced golf tournament winners in the Racing Post and the weekly betting paper the Racing and Football Outlook.

This experiment is to see how much we can make following Jeremy's tips blind for the rest of this year. He tips on both the European Tour and the USPGA Tour.

The tips are published in the Racing and Football Outlook which comes out every Tuesday and is a must buy for any serious bettor. The tips will therefore be put up here every Tuesday.

Banking and Staking

We will start with an opening bank of 500

As well as giving tips, Jeremy also recommends stakes every week in the form of points. We will stake following Jeremy's recommendation with 1 point being equal to 2% of the betting bank. Therefore, the opening week will be 1 point is equal to 10. Hopefully, as the year progresses and our bank increases then the size of the bets will increase but remaining within the same ratio of 1 point being equal to 2% of the betting bank.

Record

Each week Jeremy's tips and results will be listed here and the running total updated so we can monitor the progress. The first tournaments will be those starting on 16 January 2014.
When he recommends an each way bet, the points stake will show his recommendation for each part of the bet but the money stake will show the total amount bet. E.g. if he recommends 1 point each way then 1 ew will appear in the points column but 20 will apear in the money column.

Comments: Two weeks in a row that one of our selections has lost in a playoff in Europe which means the bad run continues. There was also one other placed in Europe but the odds and stakes so low the return was not a lot. In US the even worse form continues with none even close yet again.

Comments: Mixed reactions this week. One winner and 3 placed should have shown a nice profit but Lee Westwood was the comfortable winner in Malayasia at a short price and only 1 point staked. Luis Oosthuizen was backed to win only and Julien Quesne was tied with two others for fifth place so we never got the full return on that. Luke Donald in the US could not hold on to win in the US and only managed second. Therefore a losing week despite everything.

Comments: Another disapponting week with only Jimenez tying for top scorer providing any sort of return. What was even more diappointing was the fact that Europe were leading by a considerable margin going into the final day's singles matches only to collapse and win only two matches with the tournament being drawn 10 - 10. Not even close in the US this week.

Comments: Well what a strange and disappointing week that was. Three of the selections never made it to the first tee, Danny Willett made it to the first tee but left soon after that. At least we got money back on him, Hideki Matsuyama played two rounds before deciding he had had enough. And as for Rory McIlroy, leading for the first three days and most of the fourth before self destructing on the final back nine, dropped four shots before making a birdie on the last to squeesze into a four way playoff. He lost the playoff of course ! A nil return week.

Comments: Another winning week, although it was a long time coming with it taking five extra holes before Jason Day finally got the win his play deserved. JC was not confident with tipping in matchplay rather then strokeplay as he had not tippped the winner of this since 1999. Well if that was a bad week I can't wait for a good week ! Well done JC.

Comments: A bit of a sore one this week with only 2 placed and one of those, Jaco Van Zyl, tied for 5th with 3 others so we didn't even get the full place money. Thomas AIken managed to win in Africa this week, shame he couldn't do it last week when our money was on him ! To quote the great man himself in his column, "both winners Thomas Aiken and Bubba Watson were tipped up in this column on their previous outing and ditched because they performed like buffoons when in a winning position". Still onwards and upwards as they say.

Comments: Another excellent weekend with two winners and two placed. It might have been even better if Thomas Aiken had held on in Joburg. He was leading going into the fourth round but ended up tied for fifth. He tied with three others which meant we didn't get the full place money. Still, good going JC, can't wait for next week.

Comments: Well another interesting and profitable week. Excellent return from Dubai with Stephen Gallacher winning at 41.0 and three places in Arizona. Could have been even nicer if Bubba Watson had not made a total mess of the 18th, but can't complain with 1 win and 3 places all at decent prices. Nice tipping JC !

Comments: Well JC got us a winner in Qatar with Sergio winning at the third playoff hole and with a stroke of good fortune we managed to get a price of 26.00 rather than the 9.00. The reason for this is I messed up, not knowing that the first round in Qatar was on the Wednesday not the usual Thursday, therefore the bets were placed in running after the end of the first round. Disappointing performance from the US selections this week.

Comments: So near yet so far probably sums up week 1 with Rory McIlroy being second by one in Abu Dhabi and Ryan Palmer being second in California by two shots. Although we did get decent place money for Palmer. McIlroy appears to have been particularly unlucky losing by one shot after being hit with a two shot penalty for what is quoted as being an unwitting rules breach that provided him with no advantage. McIlroy has claimed a moral victory as he took the least shots over the week but unfortunately Paddypower do not pay out on moral victories. Onwards and upwards to week 2.
