    I just looked at the prices. Can someone give me a reason why Bubba is such a good play?

    I am a bit on the fence with Bubba. I do have a bunch because some guys have an eye on some courses.

    Bubba’s last 10 years at this event give you …
    2 WD
    2 MC
    3 top 15
    3 wins
    Kind of like an all or nothing. Add to that his last 2 recent events of a 3rd and 6th.
    So we know he has the ability to control this course and he is playing pretty good with recent form (against pretty good SOF events).

    I ask why either or Bubba and DJ. Why not both? I even have some of both with Ti dbl grr er

    I’m having trouble finding cheap guys for salary savers. Corey Conners maybe?

    Conners chipping/putting is drawing me away from him. I like Poston/Ortiz/Gooch under 7k.

    Newcomers beware the Kikuyu Monster

    It’s a thing

  • RudyPujols

    Ancer POWN? Seems everyone is writing him off since he gets a lot of work done on accuracy/fairways, isn’t long, and isn’t cheap.

    Poston POWN? He was in like 7th place before he dropped 5 shots on his last 6 or 7 holes last year. I think he’s an auto-play at $6900 with only 3 Par 5’s.

    Watch out pooch, I’m fading Jon Rahm this week.

    It won’t be soggy like the early rounds last year.

    No reseting the scores.

    It’s a strong field, so find a better hiding place.

  • Money0227

    Crap…Rose is paired with J.B. I don’t know if I can play him.

    FYI…Rahm is with them.

  • shadowchap1978

    I have a hard time getting away from Rahm, Finau, JT, and Rory at the top. Mid tier is loaded with Bubba, Leishman, Ancer, Putnam, and to round out the bottom… You gotta take a stand with a List, Harmon, Ortiz, Laird, Gooch. Only playing on Yahoo… but stars and scrubs feels like the way to go. Anyone else feeling the same about Yahoo this week?

    The par 5’s are important here, because the par 4’s are tough.

    That is all I have to say.

    I love using that quote from dances with wolves.

    Chief Ten Bears.

    What a guy.

    I think Yahoo forces you into stars/scrubs with all the decent 20-22 dollar players and a not so great mid pack

    I love Conners ball striking for this course as it’s a pretty steady slate on mid-long irons into holes but with no history here, I always get scared of first timers on these greens (and he already isn’t a great putter relative to other aspects of his game) and how they will handle a couple of the doglegs where experience pays dividends (depending where pin is on a given day, the play may be the right rough off the tee where the next day it is the left edge of the fairway). This is why this tourney has a higher “course history correlation” much like Augusta when compared to most courses on tour. It’s an older strategic setup that allows a couple holes to be overpowered with today’s bombers and technology but it holds up pretty well otherwise.

    I like looking at the round by round scores of first timers going back a few years and seeing if/how their scores changed from round to round. Sungjae is peaking my interest as people will look at his MC and be scared off for course history factors but he played significantly better in round 2 last year and only missed by two (if I recall correctly).

    This makes me want to play J.B. in showdown, too.

    i keep going back to luke list – someone stop me

    He’ll be low owned but does have decent history and the form is coming around – I’m just not sure I can stomach his shot tracker on the greens – I’d love to see him play well as I really like his swing (short, repeatable and has a great power move) I was so sure he was going to win at some point last year and he cost me $20 a week backing him on that.

  • kps3205s

    Not playing him this week with my single LU but for the Bubba Watson argument since 2014, 21 rounds, he has only 3 rounds over par (‘15, ’17 and ’19), 1 at even par (‘14) and 17 rounds under par.

    It never ceases to amaze me how you get so much important info within one reply.

    Sungjae Im got killed by his opening 76, but shot 69 the next day. (Nice)

    My main question about Bubba is I understand he’s won here before a few times but is a win really more meaningful than 2nd?

    I look at Dustin Johnson’s course history and it looks to be possibly better than Watson’s history and Dustin is generally thought of as the much superior player. So I don’t get if I’m making a big mistake when I think Bubba just isn’t a good choice compared to who else I can get?

    Do you know the stats for DJ in the same years?

    I’ve played the 4 day a few times before but mainly for Majors and my impression was ownership was overrated and I should just choose the best golfers. Last year I remember in the Masters a very chalky lineup that was duped won.

    Bubba and Dustin go together here like peas and carrots.

    DJ since 2014….24 rounds: 4 rounds over par (‘19, 2 in ’18, ’15), 1 round even par (‘17 when he won), 19 rounds under par

    Any interest in Spieth, I know he has been hot garbage for a long time but he made adjustments to his grip a few weeks ago and was #1 in SGT2G at Pebble last week?

    Hell to the No!

  • byo34

    I was looking at Niemanns scorecard last year, dude missed at least 5 3 footers and had a bunch of birdie attempts inside 10 feet that didn’t go in.

    I truly am stuck between him and Noren. Both have their strengths. Niemann obviously with the nice approach game and Noren great around the greens and putting. If only they can combine their powers.

    Also, where has Tommy Fleetwood been? Feels like he hasn’t played in a PGA event in months.

    Been awhile RG golf forum but love to see the Jon Rahm dog gifs still going!

    Where did this $3.95 a week stuff come from.

    Your info is worth more to me than some who charge for their ‘advice’.
