    The 'b' part is made up of a few things AS.

    The most obvious one being whether they have won before, how regularly they win when in contention, other factors like age (being young is often a good thing in terms of players who havent won before) - also knowing what players are playing for. There's a lot of pros who each year are scrapping to keep their tour card for the year after - if they fail then it's a year back on the challenge tour, or worse, the end of their life as a touring pro golfer. If one of those pros finds themselves in contention, then they are less likely to attack and go for the win as finishing top 5 and securing a big cheque is the most important thing. Conversely, players with little to gain by finishing high up (Mickelson a prime example) will just go for everything on the final day.

    So it's not much of a 'system' as such - quite a bit of opinion goes into the 'b' part. This week was small stakes as it was a bit of a birdie fest - the 'a' generally needs there to be quite a few bogies around to be at it's most reliable, and there were very few this week.

    -2.75pts so far - more next week (NB historical stats are +20% European tour, -11% PGA tour, so generally not bothering with the latter!)

    so what happened on the back 9 today then?

    i had stuff to do midway and at least nilson and hanson were in contention.

    Yeah in good positions with 6 or 7 holes to play, but both struggled to get anything going as Tom Lewis (young 'un who made his name at the Open this year) stormed away down the back 9. Hanson attacked almost every pin in an attempt to get the birdies to stay in contention and paid the price with a very messy finish, Nilsson didn't ever look comfortable on the run in.
