    It’s was more than that. Totally topped it, easy to do with the 3-wood

    Only made one Sportsbook bet this week and that’s an outright on Tringale with no each way. Got me thinking about how impossible it is to hedge in golf, especially in events/leaderboards like this.

    I’ve never heard or read about anything like this, but I don’t claim to be inventing the concept. Who knows. Anyway, if you like a guy enough to plop down a decent sum on an outright – why not break it into two or three or more smaller bets totaling the same sum?

    That way, when your guy is sleeping on a 54 hole lead Saturday with a pack of a dozen hungry wolves nipping at his ass, you could cash out some of your investment and ensure a small profit. But keep most of your money in and still be pulling for the guy to pull it off.

    Seems like the only sensible way to hedge in golf. So rare that two or three separate from the pack and by the time they do the odds are too short to matter.

    Sorry if this is unoriginal and/or otherwise an uninteresting concept. But I’m intrigued by the idea.

    The Tringale Train is rolling:)

    Along with Woodland that 1-2 punch moved me from zero/20 in the money to getting four 4/6 and three 3/6 above the cash line in the Short Game today

    Dunno if it will hold tomorrow but it is looking good for now!

    10/20 4/6 are in the money. All have 2-3 in top ten 100% Tringale. Pretty good chance most stay in the money.

    Its pretty much the same as –

    A lesson in horse racing I learned. For instance if the winning amount was $600, you met the IRS threshold for taxation. If you limited your bet to a smaller amount, you could beat the IRS. a $2 bet that yielded a $1000 payoff is taxed but 2 $1 bets paying $500 each saves you some money.

    OK not the same but the end result is you keep your options open, to make that call to cash in part instead of all or nothing.

    Reed replaces him on the Olympic team.

    Interesting to see how Reed does tomorrow. As a Reed 100% owner this week, I dont give myself much chance…I could be wrong

    If I had a $5, $10, and $25 bet on Tringale instead of $40, I could cash out the $10 and guarantee a profit, and let the other two ride. With one $40 bet I can only choose between cashing out and feeling like a wanker if he wins, letting it all ride and very possibly watching it lose for $0, or hedging by trying to throw money at any number of other contenders who might also not win given the crowded leaderboard. The cash out odds are pretty decent when you have a solo leader this late in the game, but still nowhere near the winning odds of course. Just suggesting this is the only way you can really hedge outright winner bets in most golf scenarios due to how many guys can still win so deep into most events. I would definitely do a partial cash out had I broken my bet into multiple smaller bets. And having never heard of such a concept (until I just conjured it up while lamenting the lack of any sensible way to hedge my Tringale bet), I just thought I’d share.

    This is getting stupid.

    Guy can’t play because what is clearly a false positive.

    I got that from CNN Olympic reporter overnight and he said Rahm was in fact fully vaccinated but didn’t have anything to add about Bryson

    Agreed, are they using PCR tests? That would be the worst way to test, very unreliable.

    Good luck today everyone! It doesn’t look like we’ll top last week, but hopefully we’ll have a few decent winners today!

    I should finish a little on the plus side, but nothing big. Plus, they’re mostly in small dollar contests, so there’s that too. My best lineups going into today are 2 6/6s at 432 and 402. How about you? I think you had a few good ones going, right?

    Also, wanted to add, this is very problematic if Rahm actually had Covid the first go round, developed anti bodies plus was vaccinated, and then has Covid again? The ramifications of that being true are huge, so we must seriously consider the false positive scenario in both cases.

    PCR tests can detect dead strains of the virus weeks after the individual is over the infection.

    Only 4/6’s Trin 100% Charl 60%, a few others in top 10. 10/20 in money so just hoping to come ahead.
    Good luck

    Its common to test positive up to 3 month after getting Covid

    It definitely could be a false positive, but they very well could have covid too. Breakthrough cases are happening. The vaccine lowers the likelihood of catching covid, but it’s not 100%. They’re just a lot less likely to have a severe case causing hospitalization or death.

    Hubbard, Kizzire, Bradley are my early players I want to see go low this morning.

    The majority of my lineups are terrible, so I’ll be happy to just win enough to cover the losses. Anything can happen though. I’m with you on Tringale. He’s in all of my lineups that have a decent chance. Good luck to you as well.
