  1. Yea, there is no model on tonights runs that does not bring some disruptive gusts to parts of the country midweek, hopefully things won't verify with gusts this strong
  2. With stories like this https://www.skysports.com/golf/news/12176/11552508/justin-rose-and-paul-casey-to-sit-out-race-to-dubai-season-finale https://www.golf-monthly.co.uk/news/tour-news/tony-jacklin-total-agreement-mcilroys-european-tour-decision-169468 You have to wonder how much longer it is before the European Tour becomes widely considered a second-rate tour. It's not just about the money. The PGA tour has long had the bigger prize pots and for a journeyman player if you can get your PGA tour card then it makes financial sense to use it, the 100th ranked payer on the European tour got 391000 euros this year (£345000) PGA tour 100 ranked player $1.2million (£945000). Nothing wrong with choosing to triple your potential earnings. But the top European players in the past always seemed to try and support the Euro tour. But that seems to be slipping away. For them it is not about money, it is now all about peaking at the right time for the big tournaments and if that means sacrificing the Euro tour so be it. Then it becomes a downward spiral, less big names at Euro Tournaments, less sponsorship, less sponsorship smaller prize fund, smaller prize fund more players switching to the PGA tour. If not careful the Euro tour will be made up of players who either cannot get their PGA card or, for whatever reason, don't want to base themselves in the US. Think drastic actions may need to be taken, such as saying if you won't play on the Euro Tour then you cannot play in the Ryder Cup. Won't be a popular decision but its better than seeing the Euro Tour become nothing more than a second Division tour.
  3. No its 12z but only have clusters for 252 hours instead of 240 for some reason..
  4. GFS Clusters, 25% go for something along the lines of the op at day 10, 15% something closer to the ECM
  5. The model ensembles still do build high pressure over the UK but not till day 15ish, of course the question will be what happens to that high afterwards. But the theme of high pressure over the UK does seem to drifting from mid month which was showing a week back towards the final third of the month now.
  6. coldies can relax, end of the ECM was a clear mild outliner
  7. Phillip Morris has launched its own stop smoking campaign: https://smokefreefuture.co.uk/hold-my-light/?open=heated-tobacco Lots of gnashing of teeth and moaning about them doing so: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45932048 but car companies have been seeling up gas guzzling polluting cars for decades and can't see anyone calling them hypocritical for now selling us 'green' cars. At the end of the day they have an advertising budget that the traditional anti-smoking organizations could only dream off if through this budget they can get out a good quit smoking campaign going, does it really matter where the money comes from?
  8. bit late to this thread but... Is it a case of genetics or a case of too much too soon, players may have the talent to play top-flight football at 17 18 or 19 but are there bodies fully ready. Does starting players too soon increase the risk of meaning that they will have to retire at an earlier age?

  10. Latest JMA picks up on the same theme as the other LR models of a mid-month switch from high to low pressure dominated setup
  11. Does anyone know what this little guy is? Rat, mouse,vole?
  12. BCC updated its long range model overnight and showing the same sort of change in pattern mid-month as CFS /EC46 EPS clusters are showing the change showing up high pressure in the majority at 240 hours: but in a majority by the end of the run Things certainly to be firming up on a pattern change past the first 10 days or so of October.
  13. Always been a fan of Justin so a shame that winning the FedEX going to be overshadowed. Not many golfers (if any) who have Order of Merit, FedEx (or there equivalents) a major and world number one (plus Olympic gold) on their CV's. Probably needs to get a couple more majors under his belt to get more widespread recognition that his talent deserves.
  14. It quiet close to is mean through the majority of the run, goes out on its own right at the end. Spread in the GFS and ECM ensembles at 10 day is about the same.
  15. Looking through the ECM members and there is an almost 50/50 split for Sunday with 23/50 going for a deep low around the country, the others leaning more towards the op run. GFS looks pretty evenly split as well, despite its op runs being more bullish.
