    After a challenging TPC course this past week, the Outlaw Tour moves to a more birdie friendly Southern Dunes layout in Maricopa, AZ at the Ak-Chin Casino / Southern Dunes GC complex.

    An Outlaw Tour event was played here back in September where 30 players tees it up and a score of -8 was needed to be one of the Top 10 players to make the cut and after 3 rounds the winner was -21 and all 10 cut survivors were -9 or better !

    This week’s event has a couple new players including College phenom (and so-far a bust as a pro) Norman “Panda” Xiong 🐼 – for those that don’t know him, he played 2 years at Oregon where he won many NCAA tournaments as well as the historic Western Amateur, finished 2 in US Am qualifying and in 2018 won both the Jack Nicklaus and Haskins awards as the top collegiate golfer. Turning pro in 2018 he played on some sponsorship exemptions in PGA Tour events with very little success and many MCs. He is back grinding and still just 21 years old so we’ll see what the future hold for Panda.

    Actually we get one more Outlaw event after Southern Dunes; the Lone Tree Classic on June 1-3 then the PGA starts up June 11-14 at Colonial for the Charles Schwab.

    Once PGA starts again, I’ll surrender to Whodat as the official weekly thread maker 👍

    I’ve never played the Outlaw Tour. Is this worth it or does it feel like really blind gambling?

    Well given it’s Showdown and not a 3-round GPP and if you haven’t been following the last few events, it probably will feel like blind gambling.

    The Outlaw Tour is worth it, but you MUST do your research.

  • ifthethunder

    The tour itself offers a decent array of stats:

    Sometimes I do my best gambling blind. Lol. I’ll give it a shot for a few bucks. I can say I suck at the free roll sims golf.

    I’m in this time – forgot or missed it the last couple rounds/tournies

  • kps3205s

    All I needed to see was Andrew Funk and I was all in.

  • ifthethunder

    Had Brady Calkins in a lineup, but I see DK says he is out.

    Hopefully he keeps it going but last week Round 3 was the round to have him when his -3 with an eagle was the second or third best round of the day.

    He is out – just saw the tweet from an hour ago

  • ifthethunder

    I think Riley Wheeldon is going to be chalk. At least, I had a tough time leaving him out of a lineup. (I made myself do it, though…he’s in 3 of 5).

    Is Sam Saunders in the field? it has him listed as OUT but his twitter feed makes me think that he’s playing.

    it’s a different sam saunders

    For added fun, they’re both listed at 7,600 on DK. And if you click on the “Sam Saunders” link in today’s tee times, it says he hasn’t played in any tournaments.

    But Samuel Saunders did play in this one, and I’m pretty sure he’s the guy playing today:

    Didn’t plan on playing, but I put a lineup in the main $10 contest. Way too top heavy for my liking though.

    Xiong screwed me many times. Time to shine now Panda!

    Yes this is mini-Tour player Sam “Samuel” Saunders and not the Sam who hacks it up on the PGA Tour and aka Arnie’s grandson

  • BIF

    I wanted to play Oda in half of my 4 lineups but he was so expensive, I couldn’t make a lineup that I liked top to bottom so ended up fading him.

    Ended up riding with at least 2 of Wheeldon, Saxon, Docherty, Funk, Triplett and my punt Gaugert.

    I played some Mr Chief Rocka…I live for the Funke, I die for the Funke, Andrew Funk

    I wasn’t going to play him, but after doing the research, I felt compelled to throw him into one l.u.

    Yah there was a little overlay or reduced rake in almost every contest – I guess with NAS and MMA being back, there isn’t as much Outlaw golf interest especially with PGA back in 16 sleeps 👍
