    When you have to go 11 deep into the “Beyond 150th on Prior Season’s FedExCup Points List, Past Champions, Team Tournament Winners, and Veteran Members Beyond 150 on the FedExCup Points List” you know you got an interesting field on your hands. Early thoughts are 6/6 is going to be important this week…..

    is Houston still underwater? or has it dried out?

  • byo34

    In the past 3 events, the winning lineup has had someone in the top 3 of pricing. Cantlay (2nd in pricing), Thomas (highest priced) and Sungjae (3rd highest).. First event had 6th and 7th highest priced in Sungjae and Niemann.

    Not sure if this means anything, but just noticed and thought I would share. Maybe just super balanced hasn’t been the approach if going for 1st. Though I guess it never really is.

    Also this means the 4th or 5th highest priced guy will be in the winning lineup this week… ;)

  • kps3205s

    I’m starting to wonder if scoring average first 2 rounds starts to come into play after getting my pool of players chosen?

    Shriners was -5 vs -3 last year, Safeway stayed the same at -3, Sanderson stayed the same at -1 and Greenbrier was -4 vs -3 the year before.

    I’m assuming -3 will be the minimum this week and based on initial forecasts Friday afternoon will have scattered showers. So Thursday PM/Friday AM might be the route.

    Looking to get back on the right track this week with PGA.

    Super balanced works better in stacked fields where the midprice guys have more top 5 equity.

    Pricing is soft right now given all the new talent and weak fields so there are tons of low priced guys who could pop which makes it easier to fit a top salaried guy.

    So yea balanced is pretty clearly the wrong approach during this fall swing in the large field GPPs at least.

    I can see the argument in smaller fields but it’s still less ideal in my opinion. Certainly less ideal now than in a more “normal” field at least.

    Happy Meal Cup standings have been updated. We have a 3-way tie at the top between BrianSnail, jtgus, and LionIrons.

    pre-event…..Is getting a 6/6 never important? :)

    even last week 6/6 is Important. More pts with 6 than with 5 (usually). BIF made money with a 5/6 finishing high on the leaderboard. Maybe some would say getting a 6/6 wasnt so important. I would still disagree.

  • titanhawks

    I’m cashing ALOT more 5/6’s and even 4/6’s than ever this year so far with the new cut rule

    Also; I’m not waiting until March 29th to play, I’m gonna start Thursday lol!

    For the Tournament Form sheet, I left the entire pool of players on there. You can filter out “1” in the salary column to see just this year’s players.

  • BerkeleyBoss

    Not sure if anyone else cares, but it looks like Yahoo ditched their main golf contest this week. Biggest prize pool is now $1,000. Bummer, though I guess I can’t blame them, it had overlay pretty much every week.

  • Dunzor

    Not yet at every tournament but take a look at what they are debuting for the Players this year. Hoping that if it is a hit they will slowly roll this out as an option week to week. Would make paying for LIVE worth every penny more than it already is:

    6/6 is critical for a top finish in a decent sized GPP

    My 2nd place finish was in a 400 player $44 Club Twirl

    My 11th place finish was in a 2700 player $44 entry. Difference between $3K and the $1500 I won.

    If I had 6/6, I easily win the 400 person contest and finish 1st or 2nd in the big one. Difference between $20K and the $500 that I won.

    So yes 6/6 is still important

  • Garpeters

    6/6 is obviously what people are striving for, but with the new cut rule, 5/6 and even 4/6 is cashing. To win, you definitely need 6/6 and it seems the way to go with these fall tourneys is a stars and scrubs approach versus a balanced approach. Especially this upcoming weekend when the field is not very strong by any means.

  • timusbr

    Why do I look at the field and the first name at the top of DK salaries is Stenson. I cant help but think….. Why is Stenson here? Why fly from Europe to the US (Texas) To go to Asia the next couple of weeks? Assuming he plays in the PGA events in Korea and Japan. Pretty sure he hits Shanghai WGC event the week after(if he still qualifies). All 3 of the upcoming events are small field big award events. Chase for the fedex cup begins next week.

    So why is Stenson here?

    So, is Lanto Griffin legit, and is Xinjun Zhang legit? I want to jump on the train but I’m scared it’s too late and the possible lack of talent gets back to them.

  • BerkeleyBoss

    Graham DeLaet way too cheap?

    He won here 2 years ago if that means anything.

    thanks, I am waiting for the Monday qualifiers before I get started on history and stats.

  • Dunzor

    @whodat2 said...

    I think it was actually a 2nd not a win, but in general he’s got some great course history here and played here basically ever year in its old schedule spot so I think he just decided to keep that going even if the change in date is a bit awkward for his Euro tour schedule

    I’m not sure yet but I’ll let you know once I’ve come to a conclusion. With regard to Griffin the bulk of his success was coming from a hot putter so I keep avoiding him expecting that to cool, but this past week I think he actually struck the ball a bit better and it compensated for the putter cooling, so maybe he’s got more talent than I thought.

    Yeah makes sense in these less-elite fields. The upper tier of players is so much better than the next tier down (just using any medium or long-term adjusted scoring average). if there’s just a few of them + a lot of top 125-250… these top guys should theoretically crush it (notwithstanding the Brooks “I’m just using this as a warmup tournament” kind of factor). There’s a massively steep slope in performance from #1 to #15 or #20….then the slope is pretty slight for the next 100… then it’s steep again (i.e. be careful of outside top 120). Salary pricing can only do so much when it’s this kind of mix.

  • BrianVT

    Since this is now in October instead of March, and not used as a warm-up for Masters, I’m reading the course is now pure Bermuda greens (no over-seeding) and the rough will be 2x the length of years past.
