    Cink at $7200 should just be in every lineup every week until he stops making cuts.

    Currently wishing I’d played Cink instead of Pet Detective. I have a good lineup, and an awesome lineup going. Both have Ventura and Party Marty. So I can now keep happy-following Party on shot-tracker, or start hate-following Ace Ventura.

    Ricky is a mental midget

    So true

    I honestly can’t remember the last time I clicked on his name – maybe 1.5 years ago for TPC Scottsdale or maybe the year before.

    Probably one of my least favorite golfers for his golf game but I do like and respect the person for all he does for the game and his marketability.

    Cut sweat for Euro only has the $10 Gpp $5 dbl up and the dogleg.

    I am seeing the 6/6 in the dogleg is abt 23% and the others are abt 8%.
    wow what a difference.

    me 4 6/6’s 5 5/6’s 1 3/6’s and 10 4/6’s

    I’m going to be interested what the 6/6 is in the $2.5 Caddie single entry. I’m in the mix for taking that down (12th) and there are a handful of 5/6 and 4/6 ahead of me. That LU is also my Happy Meal LU. If Fitz goes tragic I have a real shot. Should be a fun weekend of EURO sweat.

    What might make a huge $ difference is if Padraig can somehow defy Father Time and sneak into the T20 or better.

    He’s back with Kip on the bag now so the family vibe with his son was over – guess he’s just good again regardless

    $7200 was between Steele and Cink for me, so I just spread them around. Time will tell how Steele finishes up today, but Cink looks to be the better choice so far.

    Alright, I am now currently officially sweating Streelman and Molinari

  • BrianVT

    Please finish this 9 with a birdie, Redhaas. Killing me.

    Can you articulate more on this, BIF? Is it a mental thing? Is it his inability to avoid big numbers? That he has to have a hot putter to do anything worthwhile? Or what is it about his game that drives you crazy?

    I mean, he clearly appears to be one of the bigger under-achievers of his generation. But is that true? Or is his game just over-hyped?

    I didn’t realize Kip was back, but I bet he’ll be happy with the paycheck. Cink just seems to be so consistent right now.

    Maybe he can hole this next shot for eagle out of bunker to avoid putting and make up for the last two holes

    I dunno, just feel like he has never lived up to the hype or better yet, he was probably over-hyped and it has hurt him as he never should have been on the pedestal he was put on – he didn’t have as great of a college career compared to the Phil, Rahm, etc… I think he would have had a better career if he was not the marketing poster boy but hey he is a marketable guy, had the Puma flashy clothes and some good wins and finishes in majors.

    As far as golf game goes, I think he made a mistake when he made swing changes – I know he was trying to get more consistent but he probably makes more big numbers now than he did before. He was trying to get a swing that held up better to pressure but did not succeed. I think of him more of a choker now than I did before – to me before he was just a guy who fell short or got beat.

    I felt more comfortable playing him 4 years ago as I was playing him for a top 5 not a win and that’s ok. Now he is almost unplayable (except for Showdown) as he can’t play 4 good rounds without throwing in some big numbers – he has become a younger version of Phil.

    He’s toast. He’s not close with anything. Couple that with the fact he can’t putt, he has no chance.
    He’s a par machine

    Edit: as I type this he makes a 30 foot bird putt lol. Let’s see if he can keep it going.

    Thanks, BIF. That makes sense. Sounds like it could be a combo of underachieving and over-hype.

    I lack the golf acumen to assess how his swing mechanics/changes have contributed to things. Baseball is the only sport where my “eye test” is of significant value.

    Streelman is running out of holes

  • lfn1992

    Am I rooting for Streelman to get to -5 here, or will -4 have any sort of chance to be the cut line?

  • sneaksox

    Nice bomb (finally) Doc…is -3 too much to ask one time?

    I would just like to welcome all the newcomers to the “Never Play Rickie Club” we have been expecting you.

    Appreciate the welcome and glad to be part of the club. It’s funny I’m not mad but feel a strong sense of relief and calmness knowing that I can now move forward in my dfs golf life without Rickie…Sky’s the limit!!

    The swing was definitely more self-made before but the lines were not as good so inconsistency could (and I guess did) creep in. Technically his swing is better now but he struggles to to keep it sound or else doesn’t trust it (or it doesn’t feel right). Nobody at that level (I mean not just a tour pro but top 10 or so in world) should have that many bad holes/rounds.

    The top guys have games that match their personality and mental fortitude – Rickie has an imbalance somewhere.

    I saw it years ago when he looked and played like a young swashbuckler (a young Phil in the making) but in the heat of the pressure, when he had a chance to win, he laid up from a very makeable position on a par 5 that ultimately cost him the win.
