    Call me crazy, I think Kodiara is going to finish top ten. Im rolling with him in both my lineups. That’s my 2 cents.

    That’s a bold strategy. I’ve played Kodaira a few times this year but he strikes me as a guy you want to use on shorter / less than driver courses and this week’s course appears to be the opposite of that so I don’t think I’ll have any

    And when its all said and done you will probably be right lol. But like someone else mentioned, football season is near. if I crap out this week its on to football. Besides, there is always some guy no one excepts is in the winning lineup. Kodaira will be that guy for me. I do agree with your analysis of him though. For my two lineups im either going to be running real high and hot early or im going to be looking at a 4/6 right out the gate after the 1st round.

    Which players have a natural right to left ballflight?

    Augusta National is a classic right to left course. So much so that the fader and optimist Lee Trevino said he had no chance there and might as well not play The Masters at all.

    I liked Reed anyway, fwiw.

    Is there a site to see this information anywhere?

    Saw a video on Tiger, discussed how if he drives in rough it could be problems but then said Tiger may not need driver this week as many of the fairways pinch at 300 yds which would allow him to use iron. Something that we need to listen for this week, is it a less than driver course.

    Looks like this golfing course will favor golfers who like to draw the golfing ball a little bit right to left.

    Anyway to find out which golfers hit right to left?

    edit: nevermind

    Harman, Lefty and Bubba. Might be a Bubba course…lots of target Golf.

  • mitchsnyderdfw

    Anyone know of any comparison courses besides Firestone?

    Then leishman might be a good play this week? I find myself playing him a lot. Seems the masses havnt caught on to him quite yet. I wont be rolling with him this week but he did well for me in the masters.

    Are there likely to be any updates to the DKPlayers.csv file since last night? It showed some note saying they would email or something if updates, but curious if it is expected to get significant changes?

    Kokrak and Putnam have to be added – not sure if anyone else has got in since

    Haven’t seen the email yet from DK but they should be adding this morning

    Hao Tong or Thunder Bear? Toughest sub 7k decision of all time

    There’s some solid plays uber 7k. I’m looking at Henley, Na, Cink, Walker and Whee Kim in addition to the two you mentioned.
    Ownership will be pretty interesting down there

  • noddy

    DJ for sure for me

    Yeah it’s tough. I could see any of those guys playing well. They all have the potential, but can be pretty volatile. I think the only one I am certainly going to avoid is Whee Kim. Lack of major experience and I just don’t trust him compared to the others.

    I like the golfers in the 6700-6900 range more than I do the ones in the low 7000’s

    I have pretty much always faded DJ because he is always a top favorite. But im not going to fade him this week. Im tired of DJ doing DJ things without me having him in a lineup lol.

  • ButBongoFiesta

    Anyone with information on Jorge Campillo? Did the typical google search but that can only tell you so much. He’s had some decent finishes this year outside of the US and at only 6400 could be a good lottery ticket.

    Justin Rose is a must at $9.4K!

    Any word on his back spasms?

  • Jeddy3

    Augusta comparisons? Driving distance a premium? Right to left?

    Enter: Bubba to my lineups.

    That’s the only concern I have. I hope he’s good to go, or that he withdraws if he’s not.
