    Where: Kapalua, Hawaii

    When: January 5th – 8th

    Course: Plantation Course | Par 73 with 3 par 3s and 4 par 5s | 7411 Yards

    Last Year’s Winner: Jordan Spieth with a score of -30

    • This is a tournament of the previous year’s champions I believe. Last year, there were 33 golfers in this event, which included Jim Furyk, who didn’t play due to injury. This is also a NO CUT event.

    Coverage: Golf Channel in primetime.

    Yeah “full control” gave it away.

    Yeah but he didn’t shout FULL CONTROL, so I was skeptical.

  • WidumBoise

    Knox or Steele in cash?

    Just tough to get hype for a ~30 man field PGA event. :-(

    So excited for shot tracker sweats! Lets go Gribble.

    Jim –

    Would you mind linking to some of the threads that talk about this more in depth? Would like to get some more detail behind it. I have been a casual player but am exploring the max LUs theory

    Sorry cannot remember all the different threads that this has been brought up. Maybe the mod can assist you. There was one in which an extremely talented algorithm guy was sharing these numbers but it was midstream of a regular contest thread. He was 4th in golf and a couple months ago then won $285k in NFL. Name on here is smallandflaccid. He has a new job and cannot spend time on here anymore.
    Best advice I can give you is to play max quarter stuff and also watch carefully the ownership and methods that are on a site called the fantasy fanatics, http://www.thefantasyfanatics.com/dfs/pga/ownership_summary.cfm . After first tee off, look at the golf ownership and go over all the max entry plays and see the different strategies and monitor how each are doing. Then see where they are ranked if they are a RG’er. timusbr is a good person to ask as he knows more than he lets on. Feel free to ask me anytime I very honest if I am winning or losing.

    Yeah most will be in the same boat after a couple of hours of watching and following. Hate this event but whatever I still made lineups.

    This.

    Leaving my exposure to GPP however (overweight vs the field)

    Anyone in the platinum and gold contests today on DK?

    Whats your approach to these freeroll events infested with all sharky/high volume regs?

    It’s just one lineup so it’s a total crap shoot in my opinion. 30 man field and one shot. Who the f knows.

  • badtrip

    I’m done and cautiously optimistic.

    Six lineups, they all have DJ and or Speith. They all have Perez and or Gomez.

    The year of Pete is about to commence!

    Same as any single bullet GPP entry. Once you get over 5k entrants you need to start thinking GPP over cash. IMO
    Gold tier now has 12k entrants. Max is 22k. Probably will not get to 22k though.

    I missed sitting around at work and watching shot tracker instead of… doing.. actual work.
    Good luck in 2017 everyone.

  • ShawnIndy

    Shot tracker? Where do i get it? Is it free?

    Anywhere else i can watch the early tee times? I know the good players are on the Golf Channel live tonight in Indy.

    Always had an extra screen for this reason.

    I remember once I was working I just see blue. Every player I highlighted had found water at the same time. Just remember thinking “This is gonna hurt”

    Are you in Boise?

    No, originally I am from Bangladesh, but have recently moved to within the United States.

  • timusbr

    Well Im nervous,

    I started a new procedure on my analysis and LU building. It was a small field so the handicapping was easier but was different from what was succesful, just so much savings on time.

    Where I would manually download edit sort analyse historic data to excell (a time consuming process), I spent money on a service.

    I couldnt handle the LU generation it gave me so I manually build 30 of 50 and cottenpicked 20 of the 35 the service builder provided. LOL I still ended up editing at least 10 of these lineups and a few of my own too. EDITING SUCKS, you are not doing multilineup correctlu if you need to edit.

    @gibbathy said...

    Stenson, Rory, Garcia, Scott, Willett and Charl are all out.

    Can we safely assume at this hour, no one else will be declared out?

    Is PGA like NBA where we need to be on HIGH alert right before lock?

    Does RG app send alerts for PGA or no?

  • JimKronlund

    Tim you missed 2 of 5. you did NFL twice.
    Those in the Sports diversity challenge. Get your PGA line up in. You have 1 hour left.

    Even in full field events it is very rare someone backs out right before tee time, so extremely unlikely here.

    The players mentioned really didn’t even withdraw in the normal way, it was really just that they qualified and decided not to play. Not like they even committed and then backed out.

  • KindGuy

    Can someone tell me why Golf events are almost never televised live except for like the last round?

  • timusbr

    I would say high alert always right before. I dont know the bureaucratic rules and regs for giving notice of wd but last minute isnt unheard of.

    Slim chance it happens but if caught in time a potential lifesaver.
