    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.

    Mats smh

    Yep and my lineups go down the drain with the rain. If I am lucky I will have 1 6/6 in the quarter arcade. Goos thing I’ve had a good week in NBA.

  • lloydjv1

    If Sneds can pull it together today I may get a 6/6 back on the 100K bird.

    OK golfers, whats the deal if the last player to hit from the fairway to green knocks the other ball around???

    say just a few inches or feet or into the cup?

    The original ball is replaced to where it was resting (or as close as possible) and the other ball that hit it stays where it comes to rest.

  • QSchoolDropOut

    Ogilvy is actually hitting the ball really well. He has had a million 15-20 footers. Can’t make many.

    Note to self: Don’t pick him ever again.

    Of course, this is the week where Laird grows a pair. I was 100 percent in on him last week.

  • QSchoolDropOut

    Come on Spite

    (That’s what Norm MacDonald calls Spieth when he is live tweeting golf)

  • QSchoolDropOut

    I am 100 percent in on Spieth, Rose and Ogilvy.

    The Japanese guys taking a dump today, or actually getting dumped on by the course.

    How is the all Asian teams doing?

    This is the first time I’ve tried out PGA. I was just wondering how likely you are to cash in a large GPP if you only have 5 out of 6 golfers that make the cut? Or even 4 out of 6 golfers?

  • walkoff9

    If play gets suspended we may see some wd’s from guys struggling who dont want to come back tomorrow and finish only to be cut anyway.

  • QSchoolDropOut

    Tcovey,

    It depends on how many of the chalk players make the cut. The more highly owned chalky players miss the cut, the more likely a 5 out of 6 will cash.

    And it depends how high your four or five guys finish. If you have a couple of the top five finishers in your lineup you will likely cash

  • timusbr

    does bubba always color coordinate his shirt and ball. LOL, make him wear a skirt.

  • klyon28

    Bubba Watson wins this event with a -14 last year and this year he is +6 not even through 2 rounds. That’s a 20 stroke difference 😳

  • Roma315

    Molinari and Schwartzel are killing me 😑

  • 2incher

    Can’t wait til I fade Bubba next couple months and he wins every event.

    A typical tourney has cut rates like this:
    5-10% with 6/6
    18-25% with 5/6
    20-25% with 4/6

    So just by eyeballing with the math as GPPs pay 20-23% of entrants, you should “almost” always cash with 6/6 and if you have a decent 5/6 (which means having the winner or other high finishers) you should cash at least a half to 2/3rds of the time

    I’ve cashed with 3/6 when I’ve had the winner and 2nd place finisher – this is rare tho
    I’ve not cash with 6/6 when my top finishing guy is in 18th place or worse

    So…..it all depends

    i understand bubba but why did so many ppl play molinari…

    this course doesn’t really seem to be the best for him on paper nor is his CH that strong.

    His recent form led me to him, will probably be fading him from here on out

  • Kjwhalen77

    Dang it. Put Vegas in here as “punt of the week”…. should’ve had the stones to fade Holmes and take a Vegas instead. Weather got me.

  • sliceone

    What makes me keep picking English? He’s so 2016.

    I like molinari, on general principals. I think he has something extra in the tank when push comes to shove. I did fade him this week, only 5 LU’s of 50.

    His brother Eduardo is one of my favorite punts on the Euro tour.

  • QSchoolDropOut

    Ogilvy with a bird to get to plus-1.

    Will the cut stay at even? Who knows with the weather.

    LOL, just picked up some chinese food from around the corner and its warmer and sunnier here in Chicago than LA. It is the middle of Feb. isnt it.

    dude its so nice downstate too. Crazy nice day!

  • QSchoolDropOut

    This is off topic but if any of you are big gamblers, you might want to bet on tennis today. I do not know how to bet on tennis, though, but I know that you cna.

    I went to the Memphis Open yesterday and after his match Steve Johnson was saying how much he hated the Soderling tennis balls they were using.

    So, it appears the tennis balls are really in his head. Too soft, too hard?? But not sure about his opponent or anything, but I thought I would relay the inside knowledge because this is a quasi sports gambling message board. We shall see.

  • firemedicpat

    what is better than seeing Speith struggle? He starts crying like a bitch.
