    I know a lot of us do not like no-cut events, but I will say that in 2016, the Golf Channel coverage was outstanding. From the first shot until the last, wall to wall coverage.
    They are 99% likely to not have any shot tracker, but there will be multiple places to view the leaderboards. Will just have to figure out which one is the most timely.

    And let me re-iterate…… GOLF STARTS WEDNESDAY EVENING at 6:30 EST!! Prime time golf folks.

    In going through salaries and quality of golfers, I really think the cutoff point is about 8500, after that it is pretty dicey. I’d almost rather take a 6700 golfer than Guido Migliozzi for $8400.

    Paul Casey seems to be the best bang for your buck at 9500. He’ll probably be my highest owned.

    The results book has some more in depth statistics for this event, how much they’ll translate I don’t know. I think the 2019 Zozo would be the best recent comp you can find

    40mph winds and heavy rain expected Tuesday. An already soft course is going to get very soft.

    How about the rest of the week?

  • cplatt87

    Seems really hard to load up on two of the 5-figure salaries this week given how weak the bottom of the field is. There’s a couple of plays I don’t mind in the mid 6ks, but it’s slim pickings down there.

  • kdsdawg

    I see no golf for FD this week, sucks

    Also, just read that Hideki has won twice here, the 2009 Japan Junior and 2010 Asia-Pacific Amateur (on the West Course).

    He has to be the highest owned golfer.

    They have bent grass greens and Zoysia everywhere else

    My first impression was that Hideki would be the chalk pick this week as well. A lot of pressure on him. The local media is going to be breathing down his neck all week.

    I agree, they are notoriously bad anyway. Might be too much pressure and a good fade at high ownership.

    Kind of seems like they are “re-thinking” sizing of other featured contests since it appears some US states and maybe other countries/provinces are unable to participate in anything Olympics…

    Can’t enter any Tokyo Olympics contests in MA unfortunately.

    Never felt more of a degenerate then today.. driving 25 minutes to Rhode Island just so I could park in a sketchy Subway parking lot and enter golf contests..

    Fortunately, editing your lineup in MA is allowed, just can’t enter the contests here.

    Vegas and Mito seem like great values in the low 7Ks based on how they have been playing. Not sure how the quick turnaround to fly to Japan is going to affect them though.

    I was thinking the same but….fly outta Detroit to Tokyo on a Sunday night? 18+ hours in the air only to have to adjust to different time zone and a golf course you’ve never seen? Seems like a lot.

    It just gets super gross after that going down in price which is the only way to get any of the top plays in if you want “stars and scrubs” builds
