    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.

    This sucks cut at +3, lets a ton of high owned guys back in it. 6/6 will be so high.

  • billholler

    Na 25% owned in the Birdie. Wow

  • PuddinCheeks

    • Blogger of the Month

    6/6 probably 30% but na sure is going to help

  • 4Champion

    Na was 20% in the Dogleg

  • Bighouse55

    Stenson and Na will keep birdie 6/6 closer to 20% than 30%

  • billholler

    Na at 24.9% in the Birdie was the highest owned player. Stenson was 21.27%. Mats 14.4%. At a quick glance, looks like all the other top 25 owned guys made the cut but only Bubba and Koepka will sneak in.

  • whodat2

    6/6 is between 45 and 50% for the high buy-in games.

  • JimKronlund

    My guess 6/6 9% 300k birdie

    I’m thinking 13-15%

  • Rosterbate

    Not sure what 6/6% will be but I was able to get 43% of my lineups 6/6 (assuming Barber doesn’t go +7 in the last two holes) and both my cash lineups so hopefully I can have a decent weekend. Best lineup in the birdie is sitting in 99th with Reed and three people at T5 including Barber and Hadwin who are both less than 1.5% owned. Also have Day, Horschel, and Koepka, hopefully they have a good weekend!

    i would love to have what you’re smoking.

  • mmccannwin

    chappell. What a bum. finishing like that. Thats why he doesnt win.

  • billholler

    Just to poke the Stenson wounds, he would have made the cut if he shot 70 today.

    and he will be in the field next week. at a course he dominated and should have won last year. Hit it in the water on the 16th hole otherwise he would have. What do we do with him next week? Play him? Fade him?

    Then make a guess instead of poking fun at others

    i did yesterday. I said between 20-25% I am hoping thats the case but i think it will be higher actually.

    You have a flare for the grossly obvious. All along we thought that is why he wins.

    For the $33 I added up the percent owned of all the golfers who missed the cut and it was roughly 124%. There are probably a bunch of lineups with both Stenson and Na so the 6/6 will be about 28% I think.

  • QSchoolDropOut

    With so many players jammed, it should be a fun weekend.

    Keopka helped me get a decent 6/6 (for me).

    This is my best lineup out of the five I created.

    Laird
    Day
    Mickelfat
    Keopka
    Steele
    Blix

    I have a 6/6 but it sucks right now:

    Berger
    Furyk
    Horschel
    DJ
    Palmer
    Scott

    Barely cashing in Double ups. I’m not as familiar with DK cash games, but is any 6/6 a near lock to cash in cash games?
