    does this start friday or are dates just off a day?

  • Dunzor

    I’m hoping for some wildly inaccurate MKF lines since they are playing on three courses. Hoping to be able to load up on overs in fantasy scoring on La Quinta & the Nicklaus course

    He probably pulled the dates from last year’s header, the event starts on Thursday

    thanks I figured this was the case. Didn’t remember them moving to Friday-Monday for MLK day before.

    is la quinta the course to target for showdowns? seems like it based off of last years leader board

    Fading Stadium Course is the main point. Loading up on 100% La Quinta (which is easier than the Tournament Course, but the Tournament Course is also a birdie track) or sprinkling in some Tournament Course guys are both viable approaches, I believe.

    So, apparently this used to be a 5 round tournament back when it was the Bob Hope Classic. I have to massage my older data a little bit. I guess it’s useless anyhow, though, with the multiple courses.

    Probably not the best time to bring up how my Day 1 and 2 were disasters but I made up a bunch of them after a surprise min cash in EURO and loading up on Weekend and Round 4 Showdowns, but I’ll do it anyway

  • Felixxberg

    Funny that the smartgolfbet guy’s key metrics are “get lucky on the greens” for 2 courses out of 3!

    That was an unbelievable collapse from a great 6/6.

    Cant wait to play this week lol

  • lfn1992

    These 3 course pro-ams are some of the most difficult to handicap, IMO. The vastly different courses, the weather effects, and the huge fields are very difficult to work with DFG-wise. It does provide some opportunities for showdowns but even those aren’t as straightforward as people think. IMO.

    I do find myself wondering of some golfers consistently do well in pro-ams over others regardless of OWGR. For example, I have this theory Phil Mickleson loves the nightlife and when the stars come out, he shows up. Phil was not a great golfer last year but he showed up here last year.

    Salaries are out. A few interesting prices.

    What stats are people focused on this week?

  • byo34

    Took Phil in one lineup because I just have to do it.

    Edit: Already second guessing myself.. Maybe I shouldn’t go there.

    I did also.

  • Jeddy3

    Man, Stadler needs to keep playing so he can finally be out of statistical models. He pops every week because he was good like 3 years ago.

  • starstx

    I did not do well here last year … everyone gets 3 rounds in, large field, 3 courses, birdie fest I believe … tough one for me

    Not really a good week for predictive modeling (with 3 different courses), but I’m showing T2G, P5, Scram, BoB, P4.

    need the weather report on this one. If memory serves; last year it had significant wind. the year before was plagued by rain.
    Add in the am part of Pro-am, and 3 different courses….good luck

  • Steverino01

    I’m also going with Phil, but I am a long time fan, so i’m bias.

    Haven’t looked into anything yet, but I do know playing golfers with a good history out west is a thing. Heck I may make an all homegrown Californians lineup.

    Oh yea, what’s up with Na? Is he going to be a WD risk again this week? He’s also from Cali, so…

    Geez, I thought you had the nuts at the Sony the way the posts were flying on Thursday night 🙄 C’mon, by now you know It’s a 4-day marathon and not a sprint !

    You just wanna be in the Top 1-3% heading to the weekend and then hope the chips fall your way on Sunday.
