    Next up on the Outlaw Tour is a 3-day event running Tuesday-Thursday at the lesser known TPC Scottsdale – Champions Course.

    The big boys on the PGA Tour play on the Stadium Course; this event on the same property but at the easier and slightly shorter Champions Course.

    Par 71 – stretched out to 7115 yards from the Tips

    Unlike most Par 71’s, this course has 4 par 5’s and 5 par 3’s with just 9 par 4’s. Lots of Birdie opportunities but avoid bogies on the Par 3’s will be huge to go low and keep the scorecard clean.

    In other news, DK has just posted 2 contests for the PGA’s return in June at the Charles Schwab.

    We have a $20 entry $2.5M total prizes Milly Maker with a terrible payout structure with $1M to first and $100K to 2nd – pretty disgusting but it’ll fill because we love PGA golf and miss live golf tournaments.

    More appealing but much more costly to enter is the higher stakes $555 entry $1M Clash at Colonial which has a much better payout structure with $250K to 1st, $125K to 2nd and $75K to 3rd….also only 2002 total entries versus 148,529 in the Milly.

    PGA Tour golf is back in less than 4 weeks

    Why did they pick the Charles Schwab for the milly maker ?

    Just because it’s the first event back I guess.

    Just won a Milly maker ticket to it for $2 on Nascar. Jordan Spieth is a lot more appealing with a ticket only costing $2…

    Here’s a contest. Decided to see if we could get 25 people, just for the halibut.

    On DK, it seems that some golfers who were marked as out are now in the field.

    I saw that also like the early contests that disappeared and we got refunded then they magically re-appeared

    Strange days @ DK

    I’m still staying away from Olson though lol

    I thought there might be more interest with a return to the Outlaw Tour scoring and DK updating, which has been more prompt than what we got from the Scottsdale Open. But we still need 11 more to fill, and most of the usual suspects are already on board.

    Anyways, here’s another bump:

    P.S. Here’s another thing they have: a section of the website where you can check things like par 3 performance (relevant because the course has a lot of par 3s):

    Looks super windy tomorrow. May go back to stacking some early tee times!

    DK will have someone marked as Out if they WD from the previous event and then it’ll get updated a day or two before the event goes live – happened all the time on PGA Tour

    I’ve seen conflicting weather reports I guess I’ll have to check in the morning

    Certainly seems like a bump to the early tee times, but there are only a few that I wanted in my lineups. Hmmm.

    it’s really windy out there right now. and it’s only going to get windier. the later tee times are going to have issues.

    Making an afternoon lineup is straight garbo after you pick a couple of expensive guys, on top of that.

    Im not making any afternoon lineups because of the weather but i could see a strategy of fading the top guys and going balanced since most people will pick a couple expensive guys then drop in fillers and pray they all dont implode

  • strassnerte

    Anyone have a score for Hambright and Kuest? The leaderboard on the site is not updating that group for some reason.

  • jeffgo33

    You know it’s going to be an interesting day when the only guy on the course with two birdies is +2

    Thing is, there is no balanced tier, except what DK created with pricing.

    For instance, Nick Arman is 9,200. In the all day slate, he’s 7,400 and is listed at 80:1 to lead round one by Boyle. So does it make sense to fade Jeremy Paul (10,200) for him just on ownership? And it gets rapidly worse…it’s so funny I’m trying for some tickets anyways. Everyone faces the same issue.

    So in summary, It’s a total crap shoot ha.
