    I don’t know an efficient way without a pay site. But you can look at Round 3 scoring average and Round 4 scoring average on Pgatour.Com for recent seasons and target guys who are Top 50 or so in both. Just sucks that you have to look at small sample 2021 or go back to 2020, no way to do last x number of rounds of which I am aware.

    Thanks Rudy!

    Has HV3 officially survived the wedding ring curse?

    I know it’s only Tuesday morning. The weather here in San Diego is cold, rainy, and very windy. Haven’t looked at the forecast for the golfing days. I guess that’s what really matters.

    I can not find any info on why my man Bud Cauley has fallen off the radar, MIA. What’s up?

    Gary Woodland
    2020 Farmers 9500
    2021 Farmers 7800

    Russell Knox
    2020 Farmers 7600
    2021 Farmers 7000

    Will be inserting these value plays in to some line ups.

    Matthew Wolff 34 to 1 bet. I shall be making that one.

    This tournament is a mess from what I’m seeing. Completely different types of greens between the two courses, and different type grass in the rough/fairways. The North Course has a lot of changes made during renovation in 2017. Sounds like, historically, getting started on the North Course lends to more made cuts and/or winners; I guess from the mental factor of having a good start instead of having to catch-up on Friday. Add to all of that the fact that if winds pick-up, they effect the North Course more.

    Predictive model sucks this week. GL on the random picks, guys!

    Can someone tell me why Xander has been SO bad here? He has the length, ARG game…this looks to be a course that favors overall ability and he was born in San Diego and attended San Diego St. Makes zero sense.

    Same, but I knew something was wrong when he no-showed last week at a place he has two Top 5’s after not playing since September.

    He wasn’t on medical extension that expired, his card is legit exemption Top 125. Weird.

    Nope, there’s no reason. He should absolutely do well here.

    Sometimes athletes don’t do well at the “home” venues. There is a thought that the family and friends add to a lot of distractions and not all people handle that well and maybe some of those situations are unfavorable. See Aaron Rodgers who hates his family and his Bay Area stats.

    Couldn’t agree more, so we are probably both screwed. I am considering full fading Leish even though it won’t be comfortable (not sure yet), but I will definitely be getting over the field on Day and all three Aussie Cams.

    Edit: Forgot about Scott, will be pounding in a fair share of him, also.

  • Jeddy3

    I can fit all my favorite losers in a single lineup with $0 left over. DK is doing this to me on purpose and this is going to be a bad week.

    He has open DM’s on Twitter meaning he allows anybody to DM (not just the people he follows) so you could ask him – if you do, I’d play the concerned fanboy card over the I want to play you in DFS card 😉

    8 of the last 10 winners have started on the South Course. Anyone have any logic or reason as to why? I’m really not planning on building my lineups this way unless wind comes into play. But curious if anyone has any thoughts as to why that is.

    Of course it could very well mean nothing and probably does, but always open to hearing thoughts.

    It probably means nothing, but one logic would be if they start well on the South course, which is the harder course, then they get a real confidence boost to pour in another low score on the North.

    I read an article that said North is what you want to target for the first draw, and I think he was implying more winners start on the North, but maybe the data doesn’t actually support that, and it’s more of a common strategy than it is reality.

    You could also say that since you play the South Course 3 times, if you start well on the South, maybe that means you’re ready to dominate the weekend.

    I can tell you right now the winds on Friday are predicted to be way more than Thursday.

    I love that we even take shots at Rodgers in the golf forum 👍

    Weather must be unseasonably cold down there – the Monday Qualifier didn’t get finished yesterday and another frost delay this morning just pushed it’s completion back a couple more hours.

    With the late finish I bet DK won’t add the 4 qualifiers for 4-day but you will have them for Round 2 showdown

    If you care, here is the link:

    EDIT – it actually Hailed yesterday in Murrieta, CA at the Monday Q – Bear Creek is already a very tough course and cold weather with rain/hail is not optimal for scoring 😂

    Yes it is very cold for SoCal standards right now.
    Winds are supposed to be 10-15 Thursday, 10-20 Friday.
    Supposed to be low 60s/high 50s Thursday and a little cooler Friday.
    There’s another storm coming through so it might rain Thursday during the day, almost definitely will over night and then should rain again Friday during the morning/day before what looks like a dryer and slightly warmer weekend.

    You taking any big leaps outside of Dime Time this week?

  • BrianVT

    It’s been a while since I cared about tee times. Do those typically come out Wednesday?
