    McCumber 9 iron 183 yards not downwind

    Good look at bird to get solo lead back on last hole

    That hole is crazy, especially with pin right in front, and they are just going right at it. I would have no idea what club to hit.

    I’d just try to fly it 5 yards past the pin (anywhere on the green) and gladly take a 20-25 footer for bird and be happy with 3 – not really a hole to aggressive on but I guess when these guys are hitting 9iron, you can fire at it.

    Not that I’m greedy or anything

    We have a par 3 here at Patriots Point with a tiny island green and wind coming off the coast/harbor at like a 45 degree angle. Half in your face, half left to right. It’s a short par 3, but trying to figure out how much to club up is such a pain, and even if you hit the green, your chances of making it stick are pretty low. Beautiful scenery, but drives me crazy. #17 https://www.patriotspointlinks.com/course-tour/

    Harrington and McCumber T1

    Is this the 80’s???

  • BrianVT

    AM: -1.51
    PM: -.46

    Seems clear for SD, but of course there were a few really strong PM showings today. Hence why I can just never figure out SD.

    Nice – I hate that 45* wind into and from left

    At least your 17th is short (150) so you hopefully shouldn’t miss-club by more than 1 club meaning you should hopefully be on or around the green somewhere.

  • BIF

    Going to be some massive cut sweats tomorrow as 32 guys shot -2 (70) today so they are all currently occupying everything from 46th to 77th spot on the leaderboard.

    Cut looking very much like it’s -4 needed to play the weekend with a slim chance at -3 if the wind stays up like it just blew on the afternoon

  • Getty33

    Well whatever you thought would happen in round 1 probably didn’t. Last year’s cut was -2, but -4 is most likely now. Just complete weirdness which shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Just bring on the night.

    Probably gonna have to make your own unless you are really lazy like the rest of us and just go with what everyone here says

    Best of luck wherever the wind takes you

    Thank you very much. xo

    I hate when I don’t get up in time to edit my showdown lineup. Guess today was my donation day.

    I use the PGA site to copy/paste to Excel, clicking through each year of the tournament and grabbing all of it. Then, I combine that with individual stats for past years that I also pulled from PGA, using PowerPivot to join them all together by Year and Player Name. You can do a lot of different things with the data from that point, but I make one sheet each week that I use as my export to Python where I run predictive models on it.

    But, yes, there are also good paid sites that at least have course history laid out nicely for you, amongst other things. I don’t think I’m allowed to mention them here, but send me PM if interested in knowing which one I use. I mainly just use the paid site to plug my own determined percentages back into their modeling tool, and then I also use their lineup builder for weeks where I’m making 150 lineups – much quicker than by hand.

    Ewww, rough start for Matt Jones. I guess my AM picks for SD aren’t going to pay off yet again.

  • BadAtBetting

    I know it’s very early, but the course seems to be playing slightly harder than yesterday. -3 cut feels in play right now. But like I said, it’s still very early

  • BrianVT

    Yea, more bogies so far, but still some scoring going on. #4 appears to still be the easiest today, but some others have gotten harder. Maybe the wind has picked up; I haven’t looked at weather.

  • BadAtBetting

    Party Marty for eagle! Got him in 1/2 Showdown lineups

    Nice. I came so close to clicking on him in SD, but kept passing over it for some reason. I only have him in one measly double-up for full tourney.
