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

    Cant wait to play this week lol

    At least 6/6’s are guaranteed to cash now in the new world of only Top 65 and ties – I had a pile of 4/6 and 5/6 that didn’t cash but no Cam or Webb didn’t help.

    Holy shit…..if you havnt looked at the player pool for AbuDhabi, You need too. It is by far the better event of this upcoming weekend.

    Ah yes, the beginning of the “Desert Swing” in EURO. Abu Dhabi if I remember right is a bit of a birdie fest. But it’s got those HSBC points associated with it so I can see why heavyweights like Koepka are interested.

    $30 in $38 back. $8 profit. That little Asian fella collapsing didn’t do me any favors. Still better than losing 💰💰

    Look at you rolling in that fresh PGA dough. The Sungjae Im and Morikawa (not sure which asian name you meant) collapses definitely hurt me as well since Sungjae was in line to get the A4U70 bonus if he shot -1 or better sunday and he cost himself a ton of finishing position points with that triple as well.

    Overall I had pretty much a break-even/slight loss on DK thanks to my 2 6/6 staying just high enough to offset the fact that only 5/20 lineups cashed. On the plus side my FD lineups fared better since JT was like 60% owned over there, so my 5/6 with Simplson/Kisner/Im/Morikawa/Higgs managed to cash and even finished first in a small 100 player contest so overall a profitable week across the two sites.

    Also shout out to whoever mentioned the MKF lines as I hit on a couple of those picks as well for a small profit though would’ve been much bigger if Kisner had made one more damn birdie in his final round. I’m hoping that they mess up their lines again this week due to the multiple courses as they clearly didn’t do a very good job of factoring weather in last week

    I agree with this statement. I saw that comment on Thursday which prompted me to take advantage of the RG promo for 3 free months of premium and opened MKF account. I won everything I played on Thursday and quickly turned $50 into $150 hammering the under 16.5 par bets they had when the course was playing 2 shots over part so only Morikawa would have hit the over that day.

    and the best part is a 2 pt score for the Happy Meal cup. Your now part of the yearly golf score legacy.

    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.

    Definitely true. 1st in the $555 after 3 days at the John Deere last year……probably one of my least favorite Sundays in recent memory.

    Pros would be rock hard seeing a 26% profit every contest.

    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

    Came here to post exactly this! Glad you got into MKF this past weekend. It seems like Thursday was the day to find the largest inaccuracies, but I wound up winning quite a bit playing all unders for everyone on pars/birds and over for scoring all weekend.

    I 100% agree that the parlays are going to have similar lines on the easier courses and the difficult one this week, at least on Thursday. I will definitely post any bets I find that look like a solid gap on the easier courses.

    That was me and MGoHarbaugh :) I’m stoked that others had a profitable weekend from the tip!

    I really hope we can keep this going all season, won more on MKF in four days of the Sony than I have in a year in DK!

    That was a great value to the forum. I love to see it…
    LOL unfortunately I didnt take it up. not on MKF, but thinking about it. Looking for any updates you get.

    I was 1st or 2nd in the $444 and $44 in the National after Thurs/Fri/Sat and ended up 3rd and 4th but had dropped outside the top 20 and 50 respectively before slowly climbing back into a good finish.

    So tough to hold a top spot when you can’t gain much for Position points but so easy to lose them.

    Ya I had the same happen for my big win at the 2018 PGA, was in 1st going into Sunday of the $555, fell all the way down to like 200th as everyone else’s golfers went out and moved up the leaderboard then eventually climbed back into 4th. I do tend to prefer now to have my lineups in striking distance the first couple days and make a Sunday charge versus having to watch a great lineup have to hold on from the pole position

    I couldnt be happier with the pricing at the top. Seems too obvious

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

    Imo these weeks are unbelievably overrated in terms of “bad week for dfs”

    The Stathounds are all using the same models anyway and most of their plays are ridiculously overowned.

    Anything that keeps guys who are “sharp” out of the field doesnt really hurt.

    For the first timers. Dont fall for the hype the touts will all say it’s a bad week for dfs.

    But realistically the reason to tread lightly is that very few casuals enter the pool until the Florida swing in March. Use this week to get acquainted not to bury yourself waist high in losses

    Is Sergio allowed back In the country yet?

    Just kidding hes banned from all my lineups forever. Nothing he could do to insult the Saudis worse than he did to me in dfs

    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

    oops I guess I had pebble beach on my mind. everything in California is a mystery to me.

    You were correct about the pro am part, though I don’t remember the weather, this event also uses a pro am format similar to the pebble beach event in February

    California is easier to understand once you realize that you’re mostly surrounded by idiots on both the left and right of you. The sun bakes 80% of peoples brains and the other 20% are using their dad’s credit card.

    When the founding fathers invented the Republic and constitution they had California and new York specifically in mind.

    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.

    On the bright side this is the one time of year we can use this gif

    Thinking about upping the EURO Happy Meal this week to 40? Because of the good field. Thoughts?

    Lol. There is nothing quite like LFN relentlessly trolling the forums for Euro league action to let me know that PGA IS BACK BABY!

    It can be 5 mins to lineup lock for the masters and he will be like “I’m thinking about playing the 3rd youngest from the Von Trappe family in the Swedish Alps event tomorrow? You may know her as the girl who chimes in with “mi” in the hit single do ra mi fa so la ti do” on the bannister staircase in the feature film ‘The Hills are Alive” on VHS. Well she’s all grown up now and her putting splits on bentgrass caught my eye”

    In my defense, she’s grown up now
