    The Barclays @ Bethpage Black – Fed Ex Cup PLAYOFFS (Week 1 – Top 125 guys from the 2015-2016 season)

    I’ll get this week started with a copy/paste from PGA Tour.com

    COURSE: Bethpage State Park (Black), 7,468 yards, par 71. Built by A.W. Tillinghast, the Black opened in 1936 and was a treasured public gem for locals for decades until the 2002 U.S. Open thrust the course onto the world stage. A famous sign greets golfers near the first tee warning that only “highly skilled” golfers should play the Black, and its reputation for toughness attracted such pros as Sam Snead, Gene Sarazen and Byron Nelson early on to test its strength. Snead famously called it “an unfair test” after beating Nelson in a 1940 exhibition. Tiger Woods captured the 2002 Open at Bethpage, and the event returned just seven years later when Lucas Glover won a rain-soaked edition. The Black joined The Barclays rota in 2012, as Nick Watney prevailed.

    FEDEXCUP: Winner receives 2,000 points.

    FIELD WATCH: FedExCup points leader Jason Day, also the reigning Barclays champion, and U.S. Open titleholder Dustin Johnson head a roster currently set for 122 at the opening playoff stop. … Sergio Garcia will sit out The Barclays for the second consecutive year, while Shane Lowry has opted to play the final European Tour stop before the automatic Ryder Cup berths are locked in. Masters champion Danny Willett is the third missing name. … Emiliano Grillo and Smylie Kaufman, who won the season’s first two events back in October, top a list of six rookies expected to crack the 2016 playoff lineup.

    LAST YEAR: Day won for the third time in a five-week span, distancing himself from everyone with a 63-62 weekend at Plainfield Country Club that produced a six-stroke romp over Henrik Stenson. Three long birdies on the back nine helped the Aussie to pour it on, matching the tournament’s 33-year-old scoring record set in its days at Westchester Country Club. Stenson kept within striking distance with birdies at Nos. 13 and 14, but Day rolled home a 30-foot birdie of his own at the 14th and struck from similar distance at No.15. The triumph came just two weeks after Day made the PGA Championship his first major title, preceded two weeks earlier by victory at the RBC Canadian Open.

    STORYLINES: Day and Johnson are separated by only 34 points atop the FedExCup points race, with a gap of more than 600 points down to Adam Scott in third. Just 98 points separate Scott, No.4 Russell Knox and No.5 Jordan Spieth. … That quintet also represents the only men to record multiple victories during the 2015-16 regular season. … Though Day has cooled off since a torrid spring in which he scored all three of his wins, his runner-up finish at the PGA Championship was his third top-10 of the summer. He hasn’t finished lower than 14th in his past five starts. … Johnson makes his first start since missing the cut at Baltusrol, following a run in which he hadn’t finished outside the top 10 since May. That includes his breakthrough U.S. Open win and the WGC Bridgestone Invitational. … At the back of the points list, entrants take aim at cracking the top 100 for a place in the Deutsche Bank Championship. Typically, a half-dozen play their way into the second playoff stop from outside the top 100.

    Thank you for the advice. I’m a small time DK player who prefers single or 3 entry GPPs. I’ll only put up $15-$30. DFS MLB has failed me too many times. So…golf it is. Only my third crack at a PGA tourney.
    I also have Horschel and Stenson in a $3 tourney with Phil, McGirt and Garrigus

    Honestly it is as good of a LU as any other.

  • tklonewolf

    👍 Thanks guys. I really like Lefty’s chances for a top 5 or even a win. He knows Bethpage like the back of his hand.

    Is that because he was always in the trees? lol jk
    Seriously though I would have trouble hitting those fairways with a bowling ball.

    @miamimunich said...

    I could see that, where would you put Knox, Na, Haas, Horschel, Dufner, and Holmes ownerships? All will eat away at berger’s ownership

    I think Berger is the highest out of all those. Then probably Na unless people are scared by the impending birth. If they are, then Knox becomes heavy. I would say Horschel then Duff and JB WAY behind.

  • Rye300

    Also, I think Na is a really good play. The chances of the baby coming this early are a little slim. Shes not due for another week. September 1st if I remember right and he has already stated that he wont play next week. So, assuming she doesn’t go into labor over the next 4-5 days then you will get a Kevin Na motivated to get as many points as possible to move up in the standings and set himself up well for the playoffs since he will get 0 points next week since in his mind he is out of that tournament for sure.

  • tklonewolf

    Berger could be highly owned…but with his recent track record, I’m not afraid to play him.
    He’s hella consistent at his price.

  • tklonewolf

    I’ve been torn about Na all week long…I might sneak him into a $1 or $3 and see how it goes.

  • ImaLouigi

    I thought there was going to be a weekly “Projected Ownership” article on this site? What happened to that?

    Is there another website that posts projected ownership %‘s?

  • billholler

    Oops reply

    @osuryanf said...

    Finally finished my lineups and some initial thoughts after reviewing the %‘s..

    -I have entirely too much assBERGER

    -JB Holmes is going to destroy some of my lineups and even though I know that I still put him in some

    - Coming off what I said earlier, I think Grace is incredibly sneaky and will be crazy low owned.

    - I’m hoping Na WD’s due to birth of his child

    - Why do I feel like Rose is going to top 3 this thing?

    - Mcllroy will either miss the cut or win it

    - After donating to MLB all week, THANK GOD PGA IS FINALLY HERE!

    We must use the same stats and same lineup generator.

    I was going to take a big chunk of speith until I saw he was the RG specialist now I’m in full fade mode on speith.

    Rg specialist has about a 20% made cut percentage this year.

    For those of you knocking the specialist – you were previously praising it when it was getting names right.
    Then it had some that were misses – seems to be recently.

    So sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t.

    Since it sometimes doesn’t work, you have vowed to fade it every time… makes total sense.

    Not true. Specialist has been WAY off all year.

    If bombers are in play, does HV3 have value? for sure low owned…..
    The way he hit the ball in Canada, all over the place and consistently long over the greens says so. would never club down, smh. LOL

    He was one of those ones I couldn’t decide on. When I’m that confused, I just fade em. His inaccuracy and terrible scrambling ability just make him too risky even though the price is right.

  • th3goat84

    I will not be taking HV3, so if your smart you will play him.

    Every time I have faded HV3 and/or Casey they have top 10 every time.

    It’s your choice….

  • KNICHOLS04

    If you could take 3 of these 4 who would it be: Rickie, Scott, Koepka, Matsuyama

    Rickie and Scott haven’t haven’t been fantasy relevant for 2 months.

    If I could take 3 of the 4 id decline the offer and just take Brooks and Hideki.

    Good! Someone to hop on the fail train with me!

    Qu

    I would Fade Scott for all of the other options that are available when you don’t spend big $ on a ? player. He most likely makes cut but to get value from him he would need top 5 at the least. Think of all the other players you can get if you don’t roster him
