    My first time starting a thread.

    COURSE: Golf Club of Houston (Tournament), 7,441 yards, par 72. The 2005 Rees Jones design, with David Toms consulting, earns praise for its ability to replicate Augusta National’s setup in the final days leading to the Masters. Built across a wooded landscape in Houston’s suburbs, Jones took care to preserve the natural lakes and wetlands throughout the layout. Since landing the pre-Masters slot on the schedule in 2007, though, club officials have done well to deliver shaved banks, collection areas around the greens and a Stimpmeter reading of 13 or more.

    FIELD WATCH: FedExCup leader Jimmy Walker, Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed – Texans all in the top 15 of the Official World Golf Ranking – head up a field that includes 15 of the top 30 in this week’s computations. … World No.2 Henrik Stenson is the highest ranked in the lineup, joined by No.6 Spieth, No.8 Sergio Garcia and No.10 Justin Rose. … Anirban Lahiri, twice a European Tour winner this year, and former British Open champ Darren Clarke are among several international players using Houston as a Masters tuneup.

    Personally I decided to stop commenting so much on my own teams because seeing others do it made me realize how obnoxious it is. I’m trying to stick to more general commentary.

    There is nothing wrong with it, but if that is what 90% of your posts are, along with another 10% bashing others’ lineups and picks, then it becomes obnoxious. I posted in another thread that PGA Strategy threads are nearly non-existent because people rarely share, only after-the-fact, along with their chest thumping. Hopefully the threads evolve.

    Ryan Moore tanking today.

    well that’s a hypocritical post

    Houston has been great!! Some of us are just kicking back and enjoying the tournament, rather than be on here. So many great golfers are showing why they belong at the top of the FedEx rankings. It’s fun to watch guys dominate, instead of seeing them struggle because of weather. Awesome weekend though!! Regardless of whether or not your lineup is in good shape, you can really enjoy some golf this weekend.

    I mean, there’s six pages on here of people talking strategy and who they’ll take and not take. After the first tee there’s no more strategy to talk about because its too late. Then it becomes a live feed essentially. Which, some of us, or atleast I, like that. I like hearing about how other peoples teams are doing. And if I nail a value pick, I naturally want to brag about it because I’m not an expert and its nice when I finally do nail a pick. Chest-thumping is natural in sports-related activities. You don’t knock a mid-range NBA player after a solid double-double. So why knock a fellow grinder when he “chest-thumps” about picking that value player in all lineups? (That’s purely an example, not accusing you of doing that).

    There are only a few who do this regularly.

    Rooting for wagner to keep it going… Heck of a round so far

    well, I’m never going to listen to Jordan again…fading him because of his own words on how this course doesn’t fit his eye was obviously the wrong thing to do. The Kid is playing ridiculous golf right now…awesome to see…even if he isn’t in any of my line-ups. He will be next week!

    Anybody know anything about Austin Cook? I can’t say I’ve heard his name tossed around… at all…

    Hard to go against his form. I only had on a small % of lineups due to his high salary. I must have missed his comments this week.

  • Myprimetime

    I can’t go away from him. Riding the hot streak every week! Just have to find value to keep him in my lineup which has worked out some weeks and backfired others…

  • Putz

    Keegan with the nice putt.

    Wagner is really low…0.5% in my one tourney on dk and 0.7% in my other tourney on dk. Don’t know what cook is but I am thinking I am going to have a good sweat going tomorrow.. Got a lineup with Wagner that has 6/6 on dk in the 0.25 arcade, 0.25 qualifier and a $3 beginner birdie.

    not much to know…PGA profile has next to nothing except a top 20 in last years FedEx St Jude…if he does go onto win, I’d classify him in a Derek Ernst category…just his week, but will hardly see him again.

    I am guessing that Austin Cook was not available on DK since he was a Monday qualifier.

    no doubt about the form and it was difficult to justify the fade as I’m usually all in on him…but as I’m sure you know, when a golfer basically says the course doesn’t fit their game, it usually results in mediocre results at best. As always there’s lessons to be learned.

  • Putz

    Nice birdie putt from the fringe by Spieth to tie for the lead.

  • rpolzin25

    Anybody got some good sweats going tomorrow? I’m sitting in 8th for the beginner birdie on dk. And sitting decent in the quarter arcade. Kicking myself for my lineup that I did cash only on victiv because it’s by far my best lineup and would have cashed in gpps.

    My two interesting tidbits for the week.

    1. Jordan Spieth

    “I’m going to play next week in Houston on a golf course that’s really not well suited for me. I know that going in, so hopefully I can stay calm and collected and just try and pick some tight lines and just trim off the fat, which is what I’m trying to do to get ready for Augusta.”

    So said Jordan Spieth after another exceptional week in Texas, one which ended in clear second place to impressive winner Jimmy Walker.

    2. Shawn Stefani

    Stefani, who has plenty of experience of this course having been playing junior golf here since the age of 10, returns as a better player. He’s since lost a play-off for the AT&T National at Congressional, a course at which former Houston champions Mahan and Kim have also excelled, and registered another second-placed finish in Mexico late last year.

    This reminds me of Sam Saunders (Arnold Palmers grandson) having played Bay Hill since he was a kid.

    Wish I’d never read the article that had the Spieth quote above. My lineups are done this week.

    I made four different lineups on Victiv this week. My best lineup by far is the one I played versus the Victron. LOL!

    No more satellites on Victiv for me either. There are at least 7-8 guys with 5-10 entries of the exact same lineup in the $5 Green Jacket satellite. I believe the DFS term for that is running a train. Very different from what running a train means in porn. Single entry tourneys for me in the future.

    Link to a site with all the DK golf GPP links. Maybe some other noob like me likes to look and see how they would’ve done in the higher dollar GPPS. You need to scroll down past the basketball games. The links are posted on Thursdays only. You can view past weeks by changing the date to the previous Thursday at the top.

    2nd in the divot, 11th in the .25 arcade and barring absolute implosion should get another milly ticket.

    Edit: Johnson Wagner FTW!
