    Olesen is so bad…. I honestly just used him because he fit but I should have used some reason and played Palmer or Scheffler

    I swear BIF Tannen uses the Grey’s sports almanac 2000-2050. Over 5 years and won more on Na then lost. That guy is impossible to pick when he is going off.

    I probably play him in varying amounts 50-75% of the weeks he is in the field so I’ve been burnt but also been there for many Top 5-10’s at single digit ownership.

    Tough to play if you only have 1-3 lineups but I’m usually playing 20-50 so I can risk a couple lineups.

    Olesen stupid ass is gonna need to shoot a 65 tomorrow just to make the cut and lord knows he isn’t capable of going low like that

    Pro tip:
    Always play a guy the week after a WD when you know it’s not an injury WD just a “I’ve had enough of the doubles” walk-off WD

    Ex: Sam Burns -3 thru 5 today after a walk off WD last week.

    I believe that’s called a Sergio

    Just pull the csv’s for the contest and it lists every player from highest owned down for the contest.

    Ah makes sense. Appreciate the help.

    LOL these are the types of tourneys you can do that for! Usually for me I’ve been known to pick a moustache or two or whatever it may be regarding a player card.

    Yea i got a buddy who plays Ollie schniederjans a lot. He FLIPPED out when he saw Ollie in contention that Sunday in florida rocking a 70s Stache.

    That’s the type of info im always trying to get access to. I basically ignore the weather and injury reports and the shots gained data. I’m more of a “feel” player along the lines of what Bif said.

    I’m also big on lyrical data. I hear songs in my head all day and if i cant work your name smoothly into a lyric I take that as a sign that we dont mesh biorhytmically. That’s what the world is all about. After all We’re all just big balls of energy marching to the tunes of our own biorhthyms.

    And rhythm is a dancer
    Its a soul companion
    You can feel it everywhere
    Lift your hands and voices
    Free your mind and join us
    You can feel it in An-cer.

    Abraham Ancer. Omg i think im gonna be sick i didn’t play him

    Yea I mean I get it, we can’t demand someone to spill their guts on medical issues when they have zero obligation to….I’m more specifically upset that it wasn’t more widely reported that Leishman had withdrawn from the charity event this week. I am incredibly risk averse when it comes to playing golfers in my lineups that may even have the slightest injury issue (haven’t played Day in like 2 years). I can say for certain that had I known about ML pulling out of the charity tournament (whether it was reported as an injury issue or not) I would have played less than 5 percent of him this week.

    Agreed but the issue and position of the player has always been that they are independent contractors who set up all their own sponsorship deals and set their own schedules where other “leagues” dictate when and where the player plays (also known as their League Schedule).

    It’s a fine line – it pisses me off as there is no good info source on most of it but I also get why they don’t – I don’t tell my employer my back is sore unless I call in sick – same with Leishman, his back has been sore but apparently didn’t tell anyone until he called in sick this morning at 7:30am local time.

    Too lazy to unearth my original comment, but I’ll bring up my idea again – the PGA could enforce a rule where, if you WD for any reason once the tournament has started, you are ineligible to play again in the following two weeks. It would be short of a full-blown injury report (which some people don’t want) but would end the practice of having mystical “back problems” that cure themselves right before the PGA Championship the following week.

    It’s really just common sense – a WD should be a rare event (which also denies a deserving guy on the wait list). If a medical condition is so bad that it requires a WD, certainly the PGA should mandate that the guy take two weeks off. To manage his serious injury. For the sake of the golfers’ health.

    Andy Sullivan says hello to Clement Sordet, he’s right there as well

    My Round 1 EURO looks pretty good, 100% Westwood, so of course he’ll probably get b2b triples tomorrow and WD like Detry did.

    Aside from Sullivan, I need Winther to have a hero round tomorrow and make this cut. Frankly I don’t like my chances as he might need to make -4 or -5 to do it.

    I only multi entered the 10 cent satty. Only had Sullivan on 1/17 there. Sordet on 5/17. Ironically enough the Sullivan lineup also has Sordet.

    Oh well – got Zanotti and Schwab to sweat tomorrow but if they can both get/stay in the cut my 5/6 might be decent enough to cash. Robert MacIntrye ($6400) one of the studs of my lineup on Day 1.

    I think he mentioned a back tweak, but yes, it was more than likely the awful round. I had no problem going back to him this week at 13%, anticipating others were going to move away from him. Chalked it up to an outlier for last week.

    Nice pick in the cheap whacks! For me Slattery also doing work as a cut-maker at -1. Southgate also doing work at -3.

    sounds like a good idea for the Russian Federation Tour…. this is the U S of A man…

    Good luck. I didn’t have Slattery anywhere close to a line up. Southgate made one of the Satty.

    A couple of the Cheap Whacks off to good starts. Zach Sucher – longshot cheap whack -5 looking to finish on hole 9 for the BOFR. Unfortunately I only made a single bullet for PGA and included Lashley not Sucher.

    Doing this doesn’t always pay off but it does get you your guy at 30-60% of what his ownership would have been.

    Patrick Reed with the never in doubt birdie on 5 after that tee shot.

    Howell is 5 holes in and already lost 2.85 shots putting

    It’ll never happen that way as the Tour doesn’t care (well they may care but don’t need to do anything) about the health of the player as they are independent contractors.

    The closest we’ll see to your suggestion is setting a max number of WDs before there is a “time out” penalty but even then I doubt they go that far as the tourney sponsor (and fans) is the one that loses if you make a star sit out. That’s a bad look !

    They did fix the issue with skipping out (or sleeping in) for the Wednesday Pro-Ams where if you miss your (committed to) tee time, you can’t play in tourney. Basically if you screw the sponsor on Wed, they screw your over Thur-Sun. You can still WD from them the day before but are limited on how many times.

    At least hes striking it well!!..

    Got to look at the positives I suppose..

    Typical result in May-August for CH3

    You need to catch him in Jan to mid April; he is solid on Poa and overseeded/winter Bermuda then seems to slip this time of the year shown by his recent MC’s after a great first few months.

    He definitely fades but that borderline wouldn’t make the weekend at the local country club level bad

  • sports667

    Ollie RCB and Burns all -4 thru 7 in the same group. Need to get that group stack strategy analysis going. I mean outside of the idiots who stack the first 2 groups to get those screenshots.

  • rysportguy

    CH3 has now missed 3 putts under 4 feet for birdie.
