    New to golf, what is an average cashing score on draftkings?

    Besides the significant variance from week to week in scoring based on course difficulty, you cannot simply extrapolate what you might have at end of Sunday based on 4 times Thursday’s points as you get credited up front for finishing position points so that makes it difficult for newbies as you often have 150-200 points on Thursday in a Normal event then finish with 350-500 after 4 days.

    I have a better chance winning the powerball than this freaking thing. Screw you Rory mcilroy!

    Rory is famous for having a bad round and going low the next day – low at this course is 69 but in reality as long as he does not shoot over 75, he is still in it.

    Leader will be 67 and he is a no-name and likely will fade – in these events, if you shoot 68-70 on Friday , you will jump 20-50 spots.

    Somebody asked about TV coverage – sounds like they are starting it earlier tomorrow – in Canada we don’t get FS1 but our carrier TSN3 is starting tomorrow’s coverage at 8am ET instead of the originally scheduled 10amET; I’m assuming that is the same for FS1

    Featured group coverage is on US Open site as well

    And he has 3 decent chances of birdie to finish out round 1 and it should be prime conditions.

    It’s literally impossible for Rory to have a good round 1. My instinct says he wont even come top 20, but when you think about it all he has to do is finish round 1 at +3 and then go even par for rounds 2, 3, and 4 and he could win at +3

    Terrible start for chalk lineups.

  • Brian6035

    Going to be interesting to see how the 2nd wave does tomorrow playing 36 straight. These greens are going to be fast later in the day.

    It’s going to be substantially less this week.

    Yes that is true

  • DFresh121

    Do they have the tee times yet for tomorrow?

  • Brian6035

    Glad I added Westwood to a bunch of lineups last minute based on advice from a fellow RGer who I won’t name. Love the way he looked today.

  • mmccannwin

    rory normally does turn it around but this is why he doesnt win on the pga tour anymore. Cant put 4 rounds together.

    @mgravity said...

    Looks like Eric42 is still leading The “Super Scrub” contest. Currently winning: $20.00

    If I win, I’ll enter the $20 in a tourney and split the pot with you.

    What’s half of zero??

    Terrible start for chalk lineups.

    There is still a lot of high/higher end players yet to Tee off. I still have approx. 70%-75% of my ownership yet to play.
    High ownership in play
    Jordan Spieth 11900….39.5%
    Gregory Bourdy…6300… 24.5%
    Rory McIlroy…12000…15.5%
    Matt Kuchar…8500…13.5%
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Yet to Tee off
    Dustin Johnson…11000…38.0%
    Jason Day…12100…32.0%
    Brandt Snedeker…8000…29.0%
    Sergio Garcia…8900…28.0%
    Webb Simpson…7000…20.5%
    Billy Horschel…7300….19.0%
    Branden Grace…8700…17.0%
    Jaco Van Zyl… 6000…16.0%
    Justin Rose…10500…14.5%
    K.T. Kim…6400…14.5%
    Charley Hoffman….6700…13.5%
    Chris Wood…6600…12.5%
    …and 23 other players

    I’m surprised all 5 of my lineups are unique (ie 0 duplicates for all 5 of them). I think you should automatically be paid $5 for accomplishing that feat. And all mine reached exactly $50,000. Where is my prize for this? LOL

    I typically only play 1-2 lineups, so 5 or $100 was a lot for me. But I know this course is hard, more lineups than normal will be without 6 players making the cut, meaning the people that pick the winner probably have a higher chance of placing higher in this tournament than at an easier course where it’s possibly simpler to get 6 players to all make the cut.

    So anyway I picked 29 players and scattered them in all 5 lineups, hoping one of the 29 will win this thing. Lucas Glover was the only duplicate. 17 of those 29 less than 10% ownership and 5 less than 5% so all in all despite Rickie Fowler playing like crap already, I feel pretty good about my strategy! :)

    A significant portion of the chalk hasn’t even teed off yet.

    I replied before reading your comment. DJ, Day, Webb, Horschel, Charl, Rose, Scott and Kevin fucking Na are in probably 85% of my lineups.

    And haven’t seen it mentioned but play resumes at 7:30ET in the morning.

    I hope they do well since it’s the majority of my players.

    It’s pushed back? I thought play started at 6:45?

    That’s what was posted on the US Open site with the first wave of today’s afternoon guys teeing off at 8 which doesn’t make sense. Surely the early guys today have to be out there at 6:30

    I know that there are a lot yet to tee off and that +3 opening round might end up to be a decent round but look at the leaderboard right now it’s filled with low owned mid salary and punts. But I do think there is going to be massive swings as double bogey is in play at basically every hole. Will be fun to watch.

    Since 3 to 4 of my LU have not even teed off yet, I’m giving up on golf until tomorrow. I think I’ll see how the Warriors do. Maybe they can sink a shot or two tonite. Game on in 30 mins.
