    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.

    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.

    These are done every month and by just doing the missions i get enough FPP to get into the gold without breaking the bank and usually profitting on the missions even if they include baseball which is my worst sport.

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

    Walker is brave. He will likely contend or miss the cut.

    Wow and I though t I was negative nelly. This is just flat out wrong and I’m not doing hand stands. 100K free roll for my play is fine. You want more. I get it. You must be in that boat of all the sites are making money right now. Of course they don’t have our best interest at hearts. No business truly does that is for profit. Maybe just maybe you could look at both sides instead of just yours.

    I have Webb Simpson in a lineup with 500 left and I just don’t feel good about it. Already have Palmer. Any safety with Webb?

    and dewoc don’t go all in on Senden. I have your best interest at heart. I don’t much, but I’m pretty sure Senden will have you on monkey tilt with that putter of his.

    Webb is looking very shaky with that crazy putting style he has. Another guy I can’t roster due to tilt factor. Need to save my heart.

    Agreed, business is to make money, its your money and everyone elses money. Sorry I dont care if they make a profit, I have no sympathy for companies in the gaming industry. If people stand up against them in large blocks then they cave. They need us much more than we need them.

    LOL someone defending multi millionaires who belong namelessly in a venture capital scheme. Sorry I will always be the voice of MORE

    If only it was that easy. If they don’t make money we don’t have a site to play on. I like more and have ask many times that DK and FD give me more. I’m not settling but I’m not one to knock a free roll that is more than fair and more than likely will not fill. Carry on.

  • timusbr

    I can go to the lobby and see the gold event, but If I pick one of my 50 linups first, then go to enter contests the gold event is not visible. any Ideas??

    Webb is safe in cash games since he will probably make the cut but a lineup killer in GPPs. That’s just his game from a fantasy perspective.

  • Croppjw

    Gold tier is already up to 1700, I say it lands between 3500 – 4500

    Ehh, this week is my last week of golf, not playing the no cut events, don’t even really think I can contend this week but need something to do until football starts. It’s either Senden and Webb or bust baby… probably bust and I’ll be super pissed about it but that’s how it always seems to go

  • billholler

    Tidbit from DK’s fantasy advice for this tournament last year. Fowler won last year and also met this criteria:

    “The last 5 winners of this event have all ranked inside the top 25 in scoring average and within the top 27 in the all-around ranking in the year of their victory.”

    Only 16 golfers meet that criteria this year.

    He’s not a terrible play. Fine GPP play, due for a solid weekend eventually. Personally I’d avoid him in cash due to better cash value in his area, but his ceiling is decently high whenever he puts it together.

  • osuryanf

    And for those that thought the Gold free roll would be around 2-3k people, no chance. It’s already over 2k and it’s only been up what, 2 hours?

    It’ll get closer to 8-10k IMO.

  • HunkerToe

    I’m rolling out Stenson. Perhaps I was dropped on my head.

  • JimKronlund

    @BIF said...

    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.

    When I played mine and did really well with 173 pts in baseball all I got was $600. That was with a field of about 1300 I think. So some risk is in order.

    Well you are about to get kicked in the nuts.

    Just Kidding I have some Stenson also.

    i thought it would be hi also but if last month was only 3520, I cant see it significantly higher than that. IMHO.

    877 of 3250 is close to 25%
    while my earlier opinion thought was it would be 10% cash
