    Rough field when Matt Fitz is 3rd highest priced golfer. This event could be a free for all of “who the heck is that guy?” types vying for the lead on Sunday.

    question-

    2 qualifiers are done. 1 from Japan and 1 from Dallas.

    I was looking at guys who didnt qualify in Dallas and was wondering if they can be playing today in another? I used Palmer as the guy to look for but didnt find him. others??? IDK

    Has anyone here tried any earlier qualifing rounds a la Tin Cup. I mean it would be fun to give it a shot. just to say you did.

  • eruthruff

    You know it’s not the greatest field when half of the highest 12 golfers didn’t even make the cut in their previous tournament. This is going to be a tough week to build lineups.

    Could any compile a list of PGA pros playing in qualifiers right now that also plan on playing this week ?

    Here is what I have so far:

    Hoag
    Straka
    Dufner
    Stuard
    Martin
    Spaun
    Brown
    Potter
    Teater
    Ryder
    Barnrat
    Hossler
    Rodgers
    Gligic
    Blixt
    Glover
    Donald
    Poston
    Laird
    Hahn
    Reavie
    EVR
    Tway
    RCB
    Paddy
    Baddely
    NeSmith
    Tringale
    Armour
    Haas
    Hearn
    Gordon
    Brehm
    Killa Keith
    Whaley
    Sloan
    O’Hair
    Campos
    Putnam

    So pretty much anyone who isn’t qualified already and is in the field this week is trying for a spot today.

    I’ve only had one guy I know that was the club pro trying to qualify. Didn’t end up making it but I think he was in the Top 10. I don’t recall where that one was (but somewhere in the Midwest).

    I already see it’s gonna be a fun one this week…

  • mitchsnyderdfw

    So this is really going to happen?

    $4M for a win is huge and against a smaller field. PGA will need to step up their purses.

    Waiting for tomorrow when prices come out to see who KBarnhill claims as egregious underpriced by DK.

    Haha, don’t like to keep people waiting in suspense.

    I’m not seeing a ton to like down low.

    From what I see and from the Recent SG data the best values look like Hank Lebioda at 6900, Kramer Kickok at 7000, Joe Bramlett at 7100 and JJ Spaun at 6600.

    I’m not saying Stanley wasn’t undervalued and had some value but it was one of those crazy weeks where there was a ton of value in the low salaries going in and then some great performances from the 6000-6900 (especially the $6000-$6400) salary range.

    Stars and Scrubs was the way to go by playing 3 of the top salaries (Cantlay, Morikawa, Scheffler or even Rahm or Reed) along with any 3 guys below would have brought home a Top 1% or better finish.

    It’s easy to cherry pick after the fact. Yes, there was lots of value in the 6500 and under range. 6100 for Stanley was an outrageous mis-price. Kind of like a pass catching RB that is getting the start at $4k. In large field MME, sure, you could make an underweight stance on Stanley (not 0%, but like 50% expected ownership) and then spread out amongst the others. But in cash, SE, 3 max, etc, there was no reason to. There were plenty of other places to be different.

    If you played Stanley in cash you were probably much more likely to cash then not given how low the 6/6% ended up being. Getting six golfers through is the most important thing.

    Edit: this isn’t as snarky as it might sound. BIF is one of the sharpest guys out there. I very much respect his analysis. I just disagree.

  • Mccurds13

    Normally I’d just want to lock in one of the top two guys in a situation like this but DJ isn’t playing particularly well and Brooks, is well Brooks and I have a hard time ever clicking his name, especially at a non major. Thinking I’ll end up really heavy on Hatton when all is said and done based on first look.

    Golf, no. Collegiate baseball and academics via prescription, yes. It worked. But you might experience some heart palpitations and difficulty sleeping or “turning it off” depending upon dosage and your personal brain/body chemistry, of course. I ultimately chose to stop taking it and have made it through a rigorous graduate program, competitive profession, marriage, parenthood, etc. in the ensuing 15+ years without it. If I weren’t concerned with the fact that it is a narcotic/stimulant and I do have a family history of heart disease and did experience palpitations from it, I might have maintained my low dose ‘script and still taken a low dose, as the sharpened mental acuity and increased productivity was undeniable in my experience.

    Thanks for the reply. Still studying it. Would it work like just taking a small dose the morning of a tournament, or is it something I would have to regularly take? If it’s the latter, not interested.

    I ended up not playing, and I weirdly wouldn’t have cashed in most GPPs even if I had a 6/6.

    Overall, I agree. I think a minimum price starter in NFL or NBA is more of a free square than in golf though, but when I MMEd every NHL slate, I would go near 100% anytime I saw a misprice. The only lineups where I wouldn’t have the guy were when I had enough to take a better guy. For example, if I thought Stanley was worth $8.1K and I made a lineup that I liked and had $8.8K left, I would just take the best guy at that price. I would play Stanley in every lineup where I have $8.1K or less remaining.

    Those rules don’t apply in a very large GPP though. If you’re going against 100K entrants, you’d better just pick names out of a hat and pray anyway.

    Thanks Mitch

    wow this is a league sponsored by a British based World Golf group is different from the Saudi super league. 2 groups jacking up the money is really interesting. The money they are offering is outstanding and really a no brainer for guys who make their living at golf. 1 season here could be worth a lot of seasons on the PGA tour.

    the PGA’s popularity contest that adds money to the pot is a tempest in a tea pot as we see with Brooks and Bryson. Its a social media war. Skeptics like me dont see this as a good thing.

    your right Mitch, The PGA needs to step it up.

    Just to clarify, you dont sound convinced. The last 2 weeks were solid, convincing, no doubt picks.

    lets seperate your mojo into catagories I can follow. This week is more like sleepers in your winner/fade/sleeper. Not definite underpriced pick

    It’s a no brainer until they’re banned from Majors and the Ryder Cup. The PGA Tour doesn’t need to do anything.

    Fazio designed, would I be right in assuming closer to par than -20. or at least in that mid range for the leaders.

    Depends on the person, but I would think 10 mg would last at least 3-4 hours and 20mg time-release capsule would last at least 6-8 hours.

    Just a guess, obviously not a professional medical opinion.

    Yah sorry I was not trying to be critical of Stanley, I agreed he was mispriced and in most other weeks I would have played him in that spot but my preferential builds didn’t need to go that low and with his projected ownership rising 5-10% per day over Tues-Wed I ended up fading. It was just a weird week where I didn’t like too many of the higher salary eating guys. My favorite builds were Stars and Scrubs but didn’t include Spieth so I could easily get Different combinations of Rahm, Cantlay, Morikawa, Bryson along with a bunch of 7800 and below guys – I was high on Homa, Si Woo, Leish, CBez and Ortiz in the 7’s along with Noren, Hoag and a couple other in the 6’s. Sungjae, Niemann and Henley were the 3 guys that cost me otherwise almost all my pool made the cut but I was 30-40% each on Im/Niemann so ended up with 4/24 LU going 6/6 and then of course 2 of those had Rahm 🙄

    Since I didn’t like barely anyone in the 8’s, it just made it easy to get 6 guys I like and not play the Stanley chalk. I also didn’t play much cash/H2Hs this week but he looked to be about 70% in my H2Hs

    No you can’t play in more than one location. PGA Tour pros and some other players are exempt into this Final stage of Qualifying where most of the others have had to advance through their local sectional qualifying.

    8860 people played sectional qualifying and 500 of them earned a spot into this final stage along with 300+ guys who were exempt directly into the last stage.

    Of those 800ish players, about 80 will qualify today (or from the 2 already completed) for the US Open (depending on WDs etc) so approx half of the field for next week gets in through qualifying and half are exempt based on this:

    Is it too early to state that I will be all over Xander next week? This week is not exciting me at all, but do need a good OAD pick. Leaning Hatton thus far.

    I was playing in a tournament at Streamsong last year and I told my young caddie I just took some Adderall and lets see how this goes . He says ,” You have anymore ? “and I said sure…I played my typical bad game but he was happy and caddied good. I am 60 years old apparently for the young peeps this stuff was good in collage and such to get things done…I think it would have helped me in collage as it turned out I was pretty much a failure at school because of my Attention deficit, But I made up fore it as soon as I left school and retired when I was 45…And then I played lots of bad golf !

    Haha you’re right. I don’t feel strongly about any of these guys like I did KSDT or Whaley the week before. No “pound the table” guy for me yet.

    They have rules for exemptions into Majors. They would have to change rules…that would be a fight IMHO. The Ryder Cup is a different story. I have a guess…Its way out there…The Ryder Cup is a Huge Cash Cow (a herd of cash cows). Untapped, kinda mysterious where the money goes. I can believe incentives coming from this area.
