    Reed has played this track several times and apparently loves it. Something to think about.

    Going with my boy Min Woo Lee again to make it 3 weeks in a row.. He will make a cut one of these times.. Right?

    The World is a better place with Fin Fleer in it but sadly I already have my seven LU’s and cannot find anywhere to shoe-horn him into any one of them

    I have him right now – until last week the MC guys were usually my most expensive. Ya’ll been warned.

    And he has a really cool Masters-Green Porsche to drive around in this week :)

    Pieters/Wiesberger for me to take down the Americans this week!

    Cheap Whacks is up but I missed the golfers they added. -> https://rotogrinders.com/blog-posts/cheap-whacks-porsche-european-open-3111218

    I will leave the original list up but would rather take a chance on Finn Fleer and David Heinzinger than the last 2 picks.

    I’m rolling with Sabbs/Casey expensive duo.

    I was able to move up a little with my cheaper duo to Blomstrand and Tanihara

    The main part of my sweat is whether Xander will be worth the investment. In many ways I hate Xander because he plays so few events and it’s impossible to tell how he is after a couple of weeks off.

    Currently I’m having a serious internal debate as to whether to go big on Xander, or fade and hope he underperforms. My initial builds have been sort-of contrarian in a way with cheaper core players. This is a contest where I think it would be helpful to get a taste of ownership %, and it seems like due to name recognition, PGA, Rory’s kickass performance last week, etc. Xander will be highly owned. Not that you want to trust me with my awesome 2/6 cash LU last week or anything, but there’s a pretty good chance I think that I am fading Xander.

    The thing is if I fade Xander I really have no need to dip into the cheap whacks territory. If I did Kruyswijyk would be one of the more solid plays at $6500 IMO. I would have definitely picked a couple other names down there. Of course Finn Fleer, but also the golfer I can’t seem to quit, Ricardo Gouveia (though it feels like it’s still a week early to pick him), as well as the “other” Bernd (Ritthammer), Justin Walters, and Pedro Oriol.

    Oddly enough there’s quite a few $6.6-$7k guys I like. I can count 6 or 7 that are interesting but I think I will settle on 2, 3 max.

  • lfn1992

    Another guy I am really sweating pretty hard is Kooch. He’s a full $1k less than Xander but he suffers the exact same issues, long layoff, not enough at stake, etc. Xander at least has a narrative, Kooch really doesn’t except for the fact that he likes to vacation in Europe.

    In a way I prefer grinders here like Rory Sabbs and to a lesser extent Fat Pat.

  • cjousma

    I swapped Sabbs for Schwab. I don’t always tinker but when I do it’s usually bad so take Sabbs.

    No X Gon Give It To Ya for me. My debate on who I want is between Dominic Foos and Allen John. Leaning towards Allen due to the 2nd place finish last year.

    Cormac Sharvin is a young NIR kid that is pretty talented. I picked him in the Irish Open a couple of times and I think he made the cut both times. Not sure what the bettors are seeing in him here specifically, so I am fading. I kind of think of him as a better links golfer, but that might not be right.
