    We took out the course preview because we want the First Look to be a statistical breakdown of the course and the golfers. We will still cover our preview of the course in the Drive for Show, DFS for Dough video that airs Tuesday nights at 8:00 PM ET.

    Are you going to add Yahoo! pricing?

  • marotw

    Noooooooooooooooooo. But still love you.

  • NIN1002

    But nothing for Yahoo. Hey, Noto, show me you can at least find the “Y” “A” H” and “O” keys on your keyboard. I’m not sure you know where they are.

  • Madebadchoices

    Go to Rotoworld…They have free course previews and expert picks…As for the bets…I don’t know how you drag a losing product behind the paywall..i know i don’t want to PAY for Picks that were not profitable the year before???

  • gtkennedy

    More and more content everywhere moved behind the paywall. Gotta agree – Why would anyone be lured into paying for picks that were not profitable all year? I say this next thing with all due respect to the article writers (they all seem like nice guys in general), but I have never understood why anyone pays for content from any of these sites. These “touts” are all playing in the same contests you are. Why would they have any vested interest in truly helping you construct a winning lineup that beats their lineup?
