Bet of the Week: Last weekend our bet on the Roscommon U 21ís went down badly. This weekend we are going to split our bet. We are having a fiver each way on Dustin Johnson and on Graham Mc Dowell in the US Masters. With most bookies paying out each way six places we are confident that we will make a few bob!
