    For weekend EURO I was staring at Joost/Guerrier all day then with a minute to lock I went the hedge route, Detry and Rai instead.

    Think Pepperell will sneak into T10 and Pavon will run away with this. GL EURO weekend pickers

    And what specific stats did you use this week for which specific golfers?

    LMAO, you want a specific roadmap to the promised land.. I used a lot of data to eliminate a lot of players. I looked at 139 of them. does it help you win every week….NO, Does it help me win sometimes…YES
    but I am sure you know better. sour grapes perhaps? If you cant take a loss you shouldnt play. If you want to gripe about it lets laugh together. losing suk, I hate it, but I dont hate someone who got success. DFS golf is the best DFS sport ever. its true you dont need to be an expert to win, even you have a shot.

    And defeating one other person would prove what exactly? Better yet…

    The free roll on Fantasy Draft next week. That would work best since they even throw out your lowest scorer. So you should have no problem finishing ahead of everyone else, correct?

    I assume you have an account there under “JimKronlund”? If not, it’s free to join.

  • hcassidy

    So play suspended and I still say +3 is the cut line.

    Golf is the best fantasy sport and it’s 4-days so for some the fact that your cash isn’t getting raked everyday is also important.

    I will absolutely give you the latter facet of your assessment, but I will respectfully disagree with you on your initial propoundment. No sport can be the best fantasy sport that blurs the differential between seasoned, talented DFS players and neophyte/unskilled DFS players. The more fantasy volatility a sport has, the more it favors less skilled DFS players as volatility tends to work against the skilled players and brings them down to the level of unskilled players. Fantasy Golf has the highest percentage of volatility of all fantasy sports.

    I have to play him…weeks ago I posted that I had a dream that I was his caddy and he was pissed off because I was not ready to start his round! But, I did not know I was his caddy? And, I think he has Asperger’s syndrome? So…when gambling and wasting money that is as good of reason as any to make that bet.

    OK…

    So, for instance, did you have Dustin Johnson in all your lineups since his stats were clearly the best of all golfers? If not, how come?

    (P.S., the “roadmap” you cite obviously does not exist if you even admit that you do not win every week. Just saying….)

    I take a slightly different approach to Golf than my other main sport NFL.

    In NFL I’m 95-98% GPP because I’m successful at identifying guys who can have big weeks because of positional matchups, etc…

    In Golf I’m 85-95% H2H most weeks – I don’t use stats to isolate who I want to pick; instead I use my knowledge of the game and players and courses (I’m a serious golfer myself and PGA Tiur junkie for many years) so I look to isolate the guys who I think will suck or underperform. This week 2 of the guys I was vocal about included Berger and Gay who both badly missed the cut. By isolating the chalky/popular landmines and avoiding them, I am more successful in H2Hs. Yes there is a ton of volatility over 72 holes with 144-156 golfers as winds, sometimes rain and pin positions change every day – this is why Golf is great; it is different every day every week. I limit my Golf GPP exposure as I admit it is a bit lottery-ish but fuck me so was NFL this year most weeks with random RB2’s and WR4’s going off.

    I didn’t play Dustin Johnson because he for one was struggling to find his shot on Sunday last week but also because he won here last year. I’ll never play the winner the next year if they’re that high in salary in such a nice field.

    @noddy said...

    How is it going to get there?

    I think he was just going on early conversation and looking at his teams… +2 and that is that

    I think my points are fair and unassuming. I originally asked an honest question. The fact that none of you can answer it honestly is no reason to split your pantaloons. Just because you may not agree with someone’s opinion does not equate to that someone being “a troll”.

    All right. So then your strategy/decision would support a more “instinctive” element as being more conducive to fantasy golf success than statistical analysis, would it not?

    Dude seriously. You come into a forum of Golf DFS fans, bash the sport, and for what reason, I can’t fathom? My guess is that you got took to the woodshed by someone better than you, and you want to chalk it up to lotto luck lol. We don’t take too kind to outsiders coming in here and not acting gentlemenesque. So I suggest you shimmy along now, or put your money up, so that we can see you proven wrong.

  • mgravity

    Ok, I want to know who is the DFS player who uses all the analytics and wins every week? Is he the guy that picked Ted Potter JR last week? It’s a crap shoot…I have been saying that for that last few years. How would I ever have Danny Willett on my winning team if it was not totally random. For the time being you always play DJ.

    Thank you.

    And I think your explanation comports with my original analysis. Not that you personally were vehemently challenging it, but others were… rather pugnaciously, actually.
