AM­A­TEUR golfers are set to turn out in record num­bers for the SA Am­a­teur Cham­pi­onships at Black­wood next week.

The field is ca­pac­ity, with eight male play­ers hav­ing to be bal­loted out of the event. Seventy-three men and 23 women are signed up to play. Lead­ing SA lo­cal in the men’s field is Matt Lisk, where 42 play­ers will start with a hand­i­cap of scratch or bet­ter. 2015 win­ner Stephanie Bunque is the strong­est fe­male hope of a large in­ter­state pack.

And Winx wins again — never in doubt.

Your type of bet, Mr Con­ser­va­tive.

I think of it as short-term su­per­an­nu­a­tion — 20 times in a row.

And what do you call your ef­forts at Mor­phettville on a Saturday af­ter­noon — re­tire­ment fund for the book­mak­ers?

I play the long game, much like Rory Sloane.

How is he play­ing the long game?

Well he missed a week af­ter his surgery just to be safe and now it seems he is back. What a shock­ing anal­ogy.

I’m just say­ing the book­ies can keep for an­other day. He was in­jured.

I’ve been in­jured at Mor­phettville a few times. Self-in­flicted.

I’m think­ing of star­ing them down next week, the way the Crows stared down GWS.

That will go down well. Why don’t you just per­form the haka?

Well, I might just show them that I’m se­ri­ous.

Why don’t you pre­tend that you are deep in thought while read­ing the form guide?

I’ll be do­ing my form, don’t worry about that. This time of year is nor­mally magic. For you or the book­ies?

Ask me af­ter the spring car­ni­val is over. I’m build­ing up my win­nings un­til then.

Good luck. You’ll need it.
