    This will be nice for the Happy Meal:

    Exciting new changes are coming to DraftKings.

    For most private user-created contests, you’ll no longer have to worry about your contest not filling.

    You can create a contest as re-sizable in the normal contest creation flow, making it so the contest will automatically be re-sized and run even if the contest does not fill.

    For example, if a contest is created for 10 people, but only 8 join, the contest will automatically be re-sized to 8 people and will then run. If the contest does get cancelled, we will notify the contest creator to why that happened.

    Negative, read the fine print sir…..

    You guys think Cink is a nice pivot for GPP off of Varner?

    Nvm, want my Corey Conners exposure :)

    My bad… You’d think they’d throw that in the email. Pretty dumb on their part to limit it to less than 25 entrants. Maybe if someone reached out to DK, the Happy Meal could get a special exemption? I don’t think the @Golflandia contest needs to fill to run, but I could be wrong. Is it really that hard to just take your rape (err, rake) % regardless of the contest size? I’ll see myself out ;)

    I like that, but I just know if I get on the Cink train it’s gonna crash lol

    any showdown ideas for round 1?

    Haha. I decided to actually go with a little Corey Conners and just pray he can hit some putts. Cink I guess I would be in the same boat! But feel Corey might be a little lower owned and that Canadian narrative!

    Anybody got thoughts on Niemann vs Bubba? I’ve got a few shares of both but trying to pin down which to go with in the Club Twirl. I’ve been a big fan of Niemann and think he continues to play well, but this has been the year of Bubba dominating on Bubba courses

    Does this course fit Bubba?

    I dont know golflandia contest. Maybe, the right DK person can do wonders. The problem is everyone else that works for DK cannot do much of anything. I cant even get that Freaking PIG contest deleted that is recurring. I know it can be done…I had the same thing happen almost 2 years ago and I was lucky to get a DK cust serv person to take care of deleting it. DK stumps me, I dont get them.

    I look at what Coop got going. the contest for the satty tix. Great job coop. but here is the rub…What more do we have to prove to get this satty in each week. The wording by coop was WE need to prove. Cmon, its a contest that all that needs to be done is for the contest to get loaded in the league. Its all free $$$ to DK but for some reason, they wont/cant/have reasons not to. Trying to get them to make minor adjustments… should be an easy thing. Other DFS providers have offered dedicated service and support for this league. The ability to tailor contest at reduced rake or even rake free.

    So getting DK to think about what can we do to help them make League contests better……Isnt going to happen unless we can get a person who thinks about customers happiness and not whatever they get metriced on for there job. Hell Does Coop even have a good person to talk to in DK? I dont know he wont give me a name or introduction.

    Dylan Meyer is my spirit animal and I’m going to be playing him heavily until he wins on tour. He looks like a nerdy guy like me, he’s dealing with realizing he’s got UC (I’ve got Crohn’s), and he seems like he just has an all around fun attitude toward golf. Add on top that he seems to be legitimately good and I will be all aboard until he breaks through:

    Listening to the chat, looking at CH (in general via Google Doc) I do believe it is a longer hitters course. Thus, this dude is a NO GO for me. I will cheer for him, but not bet on him. No emotions !

    To Nick : This is where any of the paid sites help for FAST INFO. I can click on OTT, the DD… 1-125 and then reverse it with one click. I automatically take out the bottom 25 – 30 unless someone jumps off the chart via name or color of a square. @ 286 yards, He gets logged in with my shorter course guys until he top 10s a longer course. Hope he does good, just not for me yet…

    saw svensson’s name thrown around a bunch, what were the reasons people are on him besides his super low price?

    Have you tried reaching out in their thread?

    https://rotogrinders.com/threads/draftkings-community-what-would-you-like-to-know-2498166

    They are pretty good at answering questions there and will occasionally reach out to people privately.

    My LU’s are locked and loaded. PGA 65 LU’s player pool 30. 6 guys around 50% (normally I go 2-3 around 100%). Euro – with the fine cheap contests…I have 2 bullets for about $20, mostly playing for the satty tix.

  • noddy

    i’m leaning toward just doing one lineup this week and entering it everywhere. The only thing is I’m scared and not confident because I was awful last week.

  • nicholasmarsh

    I’m seriously considering 100% Finau AND Bubba with a DJ, BK, TF, SG full-fade at the top along with 0% Vegas/Reavie. Sh*t is getting crazy… TALK ME OFF THE LEDGE, PLEASE! Ha-ha…

    I think you’re being a little deceived by the limited stats trap we were talking about before. Meyer has only played a couple of tournaments and they’ve been on less than driver courses mainly so his average driving distance isn’t going to look great. If you dive a little deeper into his scorecards on those events you’ll see he was about T50 in the field and no worse than T64 for driving distance for those weeks which puts him middle of the pack and his long drive measurements on those were decent as well. He’s obviously not the huge all out bomber that some of the other young guys are, but he’s got more length than those limited stats tell you without digging deeper.

    Dipping my feet in the 20 lineup thing this week. 16 golfers with 2 being ~60%. Time to win!!

    About to plop 77 LUs in the Minimax after depositing. Nothing could possibly go wrong with my picks this week, right?

    I haven’t seen any Ian Poulter chatter

    He can bomb it, won an event on the Web com tour this year. Canadian! Last time playing here got a 34th place (though a much weaker field) and can only assume he has got better since 2015. And yeah that min price just looks nice.

    Still deciding on him or the Panda. Same price and can both hit it far. Probably won’t make a decision on the 2 until tonight.

    Does Finau play well against weak fields?

    He was 4th last year and from memory it was an average putting week.

    Only real concern is an Open hangover and maybe not as motivated for this kind of tournament as he has been in the past given how well he has played the majors.
