If my experience was anything to go by then the Qatar Masters was a triumph for the bookmakers and not the tipsters. Valamaki came out on top in a playoff against former champion Campillo.
Valamaki was priced up at 70/1 pre event. He’d won in the Middle East before in Oman. His recent form was promising with a T6 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship and T4 in the Czech Masters.
Perhaps surprising then that only 1 golf tipster backed the Fin and that was Mark Ledsham. It continued an excellent season for the tipster with a profit of +654.24pts (not verified) and ROI of 33%.
Mark covers a vast range of tours and posts his tips earlier than most tipsters to snap up the early value. I actually followed Mark for several months with some success. I placed 289 bets and had a ROI of 8%.

The problem I encountered were that prices would often bet cut quickly and for the smaller tournaments even matching prices with my £1 per point stake wasn’t always viable.
The decision to stop was mainly based on the fact it just wouldn’t be possible to increase my stakes as I was already being refused some of the big prices despite my tiny stakes.
Take nothing away from Mark though. Those are very impressive stats and we should applaud him for being the only tipster to land Valamaki last week.
He’s already posted his tips for the World Wide Technology Championship and it includes a 600/1 outsider. If you like betting small stakes at big odds then Mark could be the perfect golf tipster for you.
