    Anyone ever try a scrub core and stud sprinkle?

    I know traditional wisdom is to take a stand up top and spread riskier guys out. And i fully know and accept the risk of getting wiped out with nothing to remotely sweat.

    But I am strongly considering an all-or-nothing scrub core this week and perhaps need to be talked off the ledge. More of a SE and 3-max guy than an MME’r. Thoughts?

    I’ve tried it…crashed and burned, predictably.

    I think it’s much closer to cash and you will see a lot of the chalk even chalkier in SE and higher dollar contests – for example a 25% Webb in large GPPs was 33-40% in SE

    Yeah I have noticed that in my few years playing DFS golf and football. Just joined RG this season for golf. Aside from one friend, no one I know plays DFS, so its great to have somewhere to talk shop and strategy.

    I’m mainly a SE guy and will jump into the Mayo 3max (can’t believe how quick it filled this week) and other 3 max tournaments.

    Hang with me here. I’m finding the Bryson dilemma a perplexing one. Say Bryson does win at this astronomical ownership in SE, wouldn’t that mean that you basically need to hit it pretty accurate with the rest of the 5 guys? To me, the easier route is to just fade Bryson because of the variance in golf and build a team with multiple guys who have win equity. I mean at 11.7k and 30%+ ownership Bryson needs to win to payoff and on top of that you need to be extra sharp with the other 5 guys. I can then have my Bryson expsoure in one or part of a 3max…

    Is this a tricky path to go down? Am I overthinking it or am I onto something?

    Its a good approach in my opinion. Im playing some larger SE and fading Bryson. If he beats me so be it, but I’m not going to pass an opportunity to fade highest priced player @40% ownership, regardless of format. Like you said, it’s golf.

    I think you also need to determine who is the most popular riding partner of Bryson. For example, i think as soon as someone rosters him, they start looking at the 6800 or less range for relief. For that reason I am fading Lanto and Wolff as well. I believe both of those guys will see increased ownership in SE. Call it the Bryson Effect…if the lot of them were to MC, or Bryson underperforms you are WAY ahead.

    Yep my thoughts exactly, you just wrote it in my a more coherent way!

    Good point on Lanto and Wolff! The Wolff betting market has me worried a bit but I can’t make sense of it.

    A lesson I have learned is not to get too caught up in the hype surrounding a player if I cannot personally make sense of it. It’s an easy trap to fall into.

    I am having this personal dilemma with Kitayama right now, but he’s 7700 on FD about the 20th betting favorite

  • Sleazygreazy

    Winner: Bryson
    Fade: Mats
    Sleeper: Clark

    100% Bryson & 100% Simpson on FD

    I realize the weather difference is nonexistent. However do these greens and/or fairways do different things once sun soaked and warmed up?

    I don’t play FD so I don’t know how that price relates to DK.

    I have however played Kitayama and if I remember correctly the guy can score. I also do not mind at all that he jumped in late, to me that means he feels good about his game and chances going into the week. I’ll probably have exposure to him especially if he’s looking to be 5% or less.

    Yes greens get faster when they get baked out.

    It was a major complaint at the US Open at Shinnecock Hills because the greens wouldn’t hold any approach shots.

    Same can be said about fairways

    Yes. Poa dries up in the afternoon becomes bumpy and unpredictable. At least that’s what the experts tell me.

    He’s cheaper than Beau Hossler and the same price as Hudson Swafford LOL

    I miss the 2012 US Open Beau Hossler. He stinks now.

  • BillT

    little spots in it grow quickly creating some obstacles for putting through, the other side of the coin is sometimes a bit off line putt gets put back on line by the poa grass.

    @mr_papageorgio said...

    BIF what’s your Gordon take this week? Form is good, any reason not to go back to him?

    I typically fade a guy after their first big win or big eventful occurrence (securing temporary status qualifies for me) but I’ll have a couple as he fits pretty well here – likely underweight if he is more than 10%

    @Getty33 said...

    He’s being driving his car while drinking Red Bulls from place to place. He’ll fall off a cliff soon.

    I’ve been doing that for 20 years and I’m about to turn 52 – guess there are no cliffs on my drives 🙄

    For all the narrative lovers out there (myself included). Brian Stuard is a Michigan man. From Jackson and went to Oakland U which is nearby. 5th place last year in this tourney, his only tournament ever played in MI. He is in pretty damn good form. As a fellow Michigander I may be a bit bias, but I am def in on him this week.

    Didn’t read through. Anyone know how HV3 and company looked in their charity round today?

    It was only a 9 hole thing but HV3 looked the best, I’d say Day was second best then Bubba followed by Bryan.

    HV3/Bubba won 3 & 1
