    Gonna be a long 4 days. I never have figured out if it’s a good thing to be way up the leaderboards at this point in time only to watch it drop drop drop to reality.

    Reed better not make this 45 footer for the streak. Sucks I have almost 0% Reed, but yet I have to follow him because he’s 30% owned.

    Would be nice if Spieth just shot 61 like Day a few years ago, and they just gave him the trophy.

    The worst part about being ahead early is the superficial positional points. If a player drops from 1st place to say 30th place they lose more than entire rounds worth of dk points in the process and can really sting even when you know it can happen.

    Luke “Hero” list almost drives the green on #1. Lets hope he makes less than double bogey!

    EDIT: lol then he missed the green with a chip. Nice werk!

    i got rory at 7%, omg this is great. People totally throw him out after a few bad outings.

    Its not because of a few bad outings. It’s because he is playing injured. The bad outings just confirmed (to me anyways) that the injury is effecting his game.
    Good luck though.

    I have hardly any action in golf contests so I felt fine going riskier.

    But Stenson doesn’t actually care about the Fed Ex Cup (which is weird since he won it before). If he cared, he would have played 2 weeks ago in a playoff event with lots of points on the line for him to easily be within the top 30 this week.

    I don’t think he will WD today or tomorrow, but if he sees he’s projected like 40th or something on Sunday morning, he probably won’t care and might WD then.

    He once WD from a WGC non-cut event with a “stomach flu” 10 holes after he started off birdie birdie. He also WD from the US Open last year because he didn’t feel like coming back in the morning to finish out (but his playing partner Hideki did even though Hideki was a MC too). He also has other WDs too so it’s always a risk.

    Don’t worry. He won’t WD today or tomorrow (well I don’t think at least…that would be odd if he did). However, his WD risk comes if he does poorly today and tomorrow and has like no shot Sunday. Just hope he gets back on track, and everything will be good with him. If he’s doing well, there’s no way he will WD, and there’s still plenty of holes for him to turn it around.

    The reason why I think he might WD if he does poorly is because of his history of WD. They’ve all come in times in which he was doing poorly, and since he already didn’t play 2 weeks ago in a playoff event with points on the line, I’m not sure how motivated he’ll be if he’s doing poorly. The US Open was a good example last year (not caring to come back out the next day after the rain delay because he knew he was going to get an MC – but his playing partner Hideki did even though he was a sure MC too).

    Most likely though he won’t WD, but his WD risk is definitely the highest in the field (him and Rory). So don’t take this post as me predicting he will WD. He most likely won’t but his chances are higher than that of an average golfer.
