      RG Overall Ranking

      RG Overall Ranking

    Star studded field, strongest outside of the majors and the players. Decent contests, but DK could have gone a little bigger considering the field.

    COURSE: Riviera Country Club, 7,322 yards, par 71. From the days when Douglas Fairbanks and Charlie Chaplin graced its fairways, Riviera has commanded its own star power since first opening its doors in 1927. Designer George Thomas pored over 15 possible layouts before settling on one that now features some of the TOUR’s most iconic holes. The par-3 sixth is famed for its bunker in the middle of the green, and No.10 is widely considered the best drivable par-4 in golf. The Los Angeles Open first arrived in 1929, and Ben Hogan’s three wins in an 18-month span – two L.A. Opens and the 1948 U.S. Open – earned Riviera the nickname “Hogan’s Alley.” This summer, the U.S. Amateur arrives for the first time.

    Last years winner: Bubba Watson -14

    Cut last year was even par.

    This bad weather is staying north. I’m gonna take a contrarian stab and say they almost get round 2 finished today.

    The line of heavy Tstorms and 50 mph winds will move right through LA per weather channel

    I hope not for my game theory, but I was thinking the same thing as you.

    Begraffunder, I pm’d you a link to our Joe’s vs pro’s contest…. let me know if it worked..,

    Yup, it did! As long as koepka tanks we have a decent shot at winning some RG swag.

    If the Great Flood allegedly happens, the cut line seems like it should be E or maybe even +1, right?

    Personally I am not convinced and the cut line might remain at -1

    Forget yesterdays forecast
    Forget the 5” of rain

    It wont happen at Riviera CC. There will be rain, I assume we will have some wind, but round 2 finishes today unless the storm tracks south. I dont see that happening tho.

    yeah it’s annoying. I wish they’d have more generic missions.

    I believe missions are different for people. maybe not NBA or NHL part of it but I am pretty sure the $$ changes for different people.

    Check back in a couple hours and let me know if that’s still true.

    100% chance of rain still from the 12:00-6:00 range with wind gust up to 27 mph is what I’m seeing

    however the accumulation has went down nearly 3 inches since Wednesday.

    That wouldn’t surprise me. Still not getting me to play NBA.

    how about a link for your golfing supporters. (LOL hey JimK is that a proper use of golfing????)

    I’ve always been a huge golf fan and an avid DraftKings member but I didn’t start playing DFS Golf until halfway through last year. I have gotten a ton of 5/6 but still have not gotten that 6/6. I have the most fun with fantasy golf over the other ones. It’s so tough and challenging but also fun to sit here and watch your guys and chat with everyone in here

    This was meant as a reply to Mabrla but forgot to quote his post 🙄😂

    This storm has definitely taken a more northern track. There really could be golf most of the day. And if this does happen the AM/PM group will actually get the worst of the draw because the winds will still be there this afternoon I’m pretty sure.

  • Dewoc19

    It’s tough have 90% of your players playing in the afternoon and just watching your winning dwindle away to zero slowly

    This is without a doubt the best forum here on RG in my opinion.

    Here is the pro’s vs. Joe’s. The Joe’s have a chance as long as koepka keeps tanking!

    Im thinking right now your right

    but I am no weatherman and unfamiliar with LA. But I can read a radar.

  • BIF

    Even par has dropped from T72 to T78 so looking more like 1 under is the number you need to get to

    He’s +5. He is done.

    The first hole is also misleading. Par is bogey on that hole.

    Koepka double – stick a fork in him, he’s done

    Although I said that about Brooks on Wednesday ;)

    Freakin Sweet, You guys are looking good. Koepka looks done and dropping faster than paratrooper without an open shoot.

    You just can’t trust the weather forecast. We should all know that by now. And yet I made a couple lineups because of the forecast. Silly me
