    As of this evening Rickie’s projected ownership is 12%. I like him a lot this week. He has bounced back from missed cuts well this year.

    Scott bumped up to 21% now. I think it’s safe he’ll be the highest owned or one of. He’s always popular but ownership was depressed the last two tournaments after burning everyone at the Open.

    Wow that’s surprising that he’s so low. I would have thought 15%+ for sure. He did just get top 10 at the British Open, but given how high I saw Collin Morikawa get owned last week, I guess recent form means a lot, even in weaker field events.

    I’m looking forward to the final round pairing of JB Holmes and Bryson DeChambeau finishing their round on Tuesday. I guess Patrick Cantlay and Jordan Spieth would be playing in the second to last group.

    Hmm weird, so everything I read says this course is a less than driver course (I guess because you can’t really cut the doglegs). That seems a bit contradictory to the length of the course.

    I guess if that’s the case, this course might play decently hard and maybe only like -12 to -15 wins it (which isn’t that great for a par 72).

    The head pro said he expects -15 to -17

    Really hoping something meaningful gets done about slow play. It can really make a mockery of the game. I’ll compare it to having a group of ladies in front of you who aren’t remotely good. Those days are the worst.

    So maybe it is a “macho head game” (wish I could find that GIF) but it’s sad that it can still be played. And then there’s the doubling down and trying to deliberately get a “time” call and even that doesn’t work. Bring on the “real” shot clock and have it counting down lol

    Anyway not touching Bryson this week. Only made 3 but keep landing on Kokrak and Woodland for the last spot.

    For the Niemann backers

    I’m not sure if he is trying to fix something or if he is trying to keep instilling something but it looks weird

    I believe if helps with hip rotation.

    There are 1200 yards in just two holes on this course, so that would really cut down the length for the rest of the course, especially on the Par 4’s. The Par 4’s on the front are relatively straight, but the holes on the back nine all have a dogleg to them. With each fairway being tree lined, I can see a lot of guys clubbing down.

    You have to take into account these guys can hit their 3-woods out to 280+, on some holes that will still leave them with 8 iron on down into the green.

    Unpopular opinion: If I were a golfer trying to win, I would just purposely tilt Brooks by playing slow as a form of gamesmanship, until our group got a warning. Let’s see how mentally tough he is now. It seems like everyone who plays with Brooks bows down to him, I would do the opposite.

    I don’t think the slow guys want to be put on the clock. Brooks has said in the past that he’ll intentionally play slow the first couple holes with slow guys so that the group does get put on the clock. Then, they’ll have to play his speed for the rest. Little gamesmanship right back at them from Brooks.

    Is it supposed to rain or are we safe to Hang Out with our Sun Kang out?

    If we only knew the location of this tournament and could put that in a website that showed you hourly weather projections……I might work on a subscription site like this, could be a big money earner.

    I really need to see this Tiger interview after the pro-am today to make my final decision on him. I’d love to play him over Morikawa at a fraction of the ownership.

    Lots of drivers being hit in practice rounds yesterday – the doglegs are mostly around 280 yards and not sharp 90 degree turns so guys can easily hit driver if they can shape their tee shots. There are more dogleg lefts than rights as well.

    Winner: Rory
    Fade: Phil
    Sleeper: No cut, throw a dart

  • js5734

    winner – rickie
    fade – everyone over 9k
    sleeper – bryson (since no one seems to want to play him)

  • MrBreeze

    100% fade Tiger and Phil, if the old guys beat me, so be it, but I’ll take my chances elsewhere

    Is RCB confirmed to play?

  • mitchsnyderdfw

    Winner: Rose
    Fade: Cantlay
    Sleeper: Killer Keith Mitchell

  • mtdurham

    Tiger had a lot of success here because of the length and he was one of the only golfers using steroids back then. Now that everyone’s on them and his body is broken down and he’s bald from steroid abuse I’ll look elsewhere.

  • marker0357

    Winner – JT
    Fade – Tiger, Phil, BryBry
    Sleeper – Sun King (the Wee Mac Scottish Ale is damn good if you ever get a chance to try it)

    Big fan of this statement as a whole! Wee Mac is my fav Sun King for sure and I got me a share of Kang already. Good luck!

    If one were left with $6400 for their last spot, who would be the best play? Taylor? GMac? Clark? Start over on my build?

    At $6400 ? Obviously Vaughn Taylor.

    If anybody cares, I asked Draftkings if this event works for the cut maker achievement and they said yes.

    Well Based on this I played twenty dimes with the same LU now I just have to hope for no WD.
