    Another note on US Open qualifying.

    Can you image the pressure the amatuers playing in Columbus, OH must be feeling. Sectional qualifying is already the most pressure packed round of golf you could play, but then you go and get paired up with all of the pros hopping over after their rounds at the Memorial. That’s a multi stroke handicap on the Ams right off the bat.

    Is that even possible??

    Impossible on DK. Easily done on FD.

    Surprised to see that even with a win this season Corey Conners is not in the US Open field.

    Currently in Springfield for the qualifier and is +2 thru 2

    after this memorial tournament i am nervous about this weeks tournament.

    i looked at some of the top lineups from the tournaments I did for memorial and there were golfers like streelman and cauley in the winning lineups at less than 5% owned. those guys were not even miles of being on my radar.

    what really is the best approach with these golf tournaments? i felt like i did adequate research for memorial and came up significantly short. was 2/6 going into saturday.

    the week prior i did not do nearly as much research and went 5/6.

    i mean i’d like to know the significance of these sub 7,000 players. cause clearly they seem significant to me.

    thank you

    For anyone that hasn’t looked into the course yet for this year, it is basically the opposite of what we’ve seen at the RBC the last couple years. This course is a shorter par 70 with small slow greens, whereas Glen Abbey was a wide open par 72 bomber’s paradise for the most part.

    Previous winners at Hamilton include Scott Piercy and Jim Furyk if that gives you any indication of the potential type of golfer to succeed. It will be interesting to see if that holds true this year or if the game has changed enough over the last 7-8 years to let the big hitters try to over power the course.

  • smokeyca14

    Who are these people, don’t recognize player names?
    Its like pga went underground instead of mainstream lol

    There are going to be a chunk of names you don’t recognize since they invite a group of Canadians to the event, often guys who play on the MacKenzie tour or the other smaller tours since it is their national open

    Definitely doesn’t seem like a bomber’s course, but then again it depends on how penal the rough is. If the rough is thick and penal it will definitely bring the shorter more accurate hitters into the mix. If its not penal and you can bomb it and not care where it ends up, then I would imagine it will be tough for a non-bomber to win.

    Interesting article about the course and the workup required for the tournament. A few things I picked up.

    Over 1000 trees were removed since the last time it was played here.

    Interesting if the AM showers come into play on Thursday:

    “The key to Hamilton truly challenging the best players in the world is that it must be dry. If there is any significant rain leading up to the tournament, Trainor says the course will lose some of its edge and its key defenses, and the PGA Tour players will be firing at pins. “When our greens and fairways get wet,” he says, “they don’t dry out quickly.”

    The guy leading the Cali sectional went 2-2 on back to back par 4’s in his first round. The internet says those par 4’s play close to 400 so not like they were big drives with putts I’m guessing.

    I read a similar article that said if its wet the course will turn into target practice.

    Wait and see I guess.

    Is that even possible??

    Leaves $6600 a golfer, after my first look the field is mighty thin under $6600 so it is possible but not optimal I’m guessing.

    Agreed. Even after $7500ish the player pool gets really shallow. But unfortunately, the top talent is so high priced this week that I couldn’t even make a balanced lineup I feel great about in my first run-through.

    Thats what I keep telling myself. Hate fading him in such great form

  • Felixxberg

    @Pbasniper and sfguy21: I made a balanced lineup on DK with only guys between $7.6K and $9.1K and I’m not happy at all with it, but I think everyone will go stars and scrubs to fit DJ, Koepka, Rory or JT (maybe Kuchar too), so I’ll go balanced.

    I hope he misses the cut so we get a discount for the US Open. That said, if he’s $10.5K or under at the US Open, his ownership will be sky high no matter what his result is this week.

    He can miss the cut by 15 this week and I still dont see him being under $10.5k for the US Open. The only way I see him dropping below that number is if he has to WD for a legit on course injury.
