    Deutsche Bank – TPC Boston – Fed Ex Cup Playoffs

    Final field list has 99 players – no Danny Willet
    This is a cut event so low 70 & ties make it thru to the weekend

    Last year a score +3 was needed to make the weekend.
    74 players made it to the weekend.

    TPC Boston Par 36-35-71
    3 par fives (2 on front nine – 1 on back nine #18)

    Last year Rickie Fowler -15 won this event by one shot over Stenson -14 and was the only player to have All 4 Rounds Under 70. Five other players (Stenson, O’Hair, Jones, Berger and Swafford) all shot the 1st 3 rounds in the 60’s but blew the bonus in the Final Round. Only Stenson was close with a final round 70, the others shot between 73 and 76.

    Stenson blew a 1 shot lead after 54 holes and still had that lead with 3 holes left but a Double Bogey on the par 3 16th after hitting it in the water gave Fowler a 2-shot swing and the lead by 1 after Rickie made par.

    The 18th is a reachable par 5 at 530yds that could provide another exciting finish.

    REMEMBER – this is a Friday to Monday event so no golf on Thursday and make sure you get you entries reserved as I’m sure most GPP’s in this event (the last one with a cut) will fill 12-24 hours before lock.

    no mainstream media on Spieth that I have seen, were we hoodwinked? I thought it a significant issue on the golfers mental state of mind…so I cut my exposure from 40% to 18%

    If true I think that the main stream media would shy away for now and not make Spieth furious at them. I saw Spieth at practice range yesterday. Nothing mentioned.
    Just a guess…

    No answer about what will happen if the Tropical storm sticks around New England. Im not much of a weatherman, but Ive spent some time in that area and found it can rain for days and days on a named storm.

  • billholler

    I wonder if anyone at DK noticed that the big Birdie filled a day in advance? Plus, the smaller Birdie is 1/3rd filled after only a few hours.

    OK made my Gold Tier picks and it was 89/unlimited. This will be crazy low participants because they do not give alerts.
    They only have it quietly under My Accounts. Kinda like when you get a PM on here. Unless you look you would never know. I expect that even if they think its coming most will not keep hitting My Accounts. I bet its no more than 1100 entrants. Plus its already September and most will think that they stopped doing it, Even the Bi-monthly was opened in Sept.

    Did they send out emails? I never got one, so I had to use the link someone posted earlier. If that’s the case it will be SUPER low participants.

    Atleast I should win $50 back this weekend!

    Fun new tilt inducing DK UI fuckup – first they send me invites non stop and even if I take them, push no thanks, or trash them – they will send them to me again later – sometimes only a few mins later – sometimes hours later.
    That itself is pushing how much I am willing to take there – incredibly annoying.

    But now when I go to push the trash button to get it off my fucking screen, it isn’t there – I have to scroll to the right in the little window and click it.

    Which trashes it.
    LOL – no I am kidding – it doesn’t trash it.
    It instead uses up one of my laptop CPU cores and cranks up memory usage doing some failure in programming until Chrome tells me to kill the tab (it won’t close out if I try to close it, and it won’t respond to anything else on that tab).

    So if you are close to a deadline on something and need the page to work – don’t touch that, bc it is hosed.

    Well done, lots of skill.

    Small and Flaccid I wonder what your algo’s say about a player that has a remarkable tournament and what his forecast is for the next tournament. Just like the same am/pm correlation question where it tends to balance out the next round. I am pretty sure I know what the answer is but some players keep trending until they win. Example Hoffman Reed.
    Just would like your opinions on those scenarios.

    Bayesian would say it should improve the future outcome, but as an influence, not a game changer.

    Whether or not that is relevant here, no clue – seems there is a key mental part that stats can’t tell you (stating the obvious there I guess).

    Now what lineup to use in this gold tier think.

    Exactly – do I play it like a cash game and try to guarantee payout or play it like a GPP and feast/famine result.

    Since it’s a freeroll with nice top payouts, I’m going with some risk.

    Are you in gold? You seem to want to down grade these benefits in all your post. You don’t think playing a free roll for 100K is a good event. Especially one that never fills. It will be well below 8K and last month we had 3 days. Now we have 18 hours.

    I’m in silver freeroll dont have a big bankroll like everyone else . already 1000 ppl in it geez

    I believe last month the tourneys were posted before we even received the tickets and that was a week in advance.

  • rog11sm

    After looking at my lineups I have no Furyk and 44 percent Rose. This extra day is going to have me changing my lineups to resemble nothing of the originals.
    By midnight tonight it will be 100 percent Furyk/Day and who knows who else.

    Gold is at 1000 too. It was at about 480 when I entered about 15 minutes ago.

  • mackie64

    Will Swafford at 5500 will be highly owned? Don’t know much about him. Who do you guys like in the 9700-8100 price range? Had Phil but could some of the other guys as well.

    Seriously? Ugghhh!!! Have to go take him out of my lineups now.

    For those of you who say Saahil is bad at golf, he has a 3 man $10.6k out there with nobody in it yet.
    Go take that man’s money.

    Weather looks good Friday and Saturday so don’t see much of a benefit between AM and PM… any thoughts.

    Rest of the tournament looks crappy with rain, who knows if they will finish all 4 rounds.

  • billholler

    For the updated forecast…..it’s going to rain Monday. Chance of rain 50% Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday with winds Sunday and Monday in the 20 MPH sustained range. So what do the do if they haven’t even finished round 3 by Monday afternoon?

    So that feeling you get when you see way too much Jimmy Walker and Luke Donald on your teams…

  • timusbr

    yes I am in gold, what is it 3 months now and I get just over 2000 FPP’s. I was a huge critic of DK’s rewards program before this new system. I have been satisfied with the new system but not going to do handstands and clap about what I receive for my patronage.

    I know your opinion…..we dont agree.. thats all we need to say because noone wants to hear it.

    sure its a good event, you are satisfied, I think it could be more.

    Why is my opinion on could be more so distastful to you. You in the past have interpreted words into peoples meaning on this issue. and make your scew finite into DONT PLAY.

    Do you think people can enjoy a game, pay the price and ask for more without being called names or being stupid (I know not on this post but in the past you have). Maybe if you challenge DK you can do better. Or do you think DK has your best interest at heart.
