    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

    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.

    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?

    Last time Stenson withdrew he won the following week. I’ve already locked him in to my lineup next week regardless of price.

    On second thought 6/6 in the $33 will probably be like 36%

  • osuryanf

    You guys that think 6/6 will be near 30% are the ones that are smoking something.

    Stenson took 20%+ out immediately, then you have 25% NA owners, Mats owners, Walker, Lee, Haas, Lingmerth etc etc.

    I’d predict right at 15% (in birdie)

    Last time it was his back. This time it’s his surgically repaired knee. I just had knee surgery for the exact same thing. Just knowing how I feel from it, I wouldn’t go anywhere near stenson for awhile unless he is unbelievably cheap.

  • tklonewolf

    Spieth/Mickelson/Watson/McGirt/Holmes/Berger. 205.5 DK points. I’m damn close to cashing in 10 tourneys.
    Phil…dude…c’mon man!
    Bubba…had me in a pissed off mood till the cut line was raised to +3. He needs to stop choking on the easy holes.

    Only thing I am proud of this week so far is the 100 percent Kevin Na fade

    From Fantasy Fanatics:

    Barclays cuts are now up. 15-20% had 6/6 in GPPs, 25-30% in cash.

    FWGC was up at 37%

  • JimKronlund

    15.78 6/6 in 300k Birdie
    osuryanf and Bill win it

  • ItsMeBT

    1 out of 3 LU getting 6/6 through and it shot a combined 9 over. Fun day

  • dmrose

    First week back since I live in NY, and I’ll have a great sweat this weekend with 9/10 teams with 6/6. Cut moving to +3 helped since I have a lot of teams with Bubba

    it was 20 percent in the dogleg and 26 percent in double ups. Not that crazy.

  • manoffewwords

    On DK app it shows Na not MC? Maybe missing something

    One 6/6 LU with Spieth, Moore and Furyk under par. Haas was my last minute substitute when Cejka WD and that poor choice blew 3 other LUs to 5/6. I chuckle when I read people’s posts about not knowing how they got someone in their LU. Well, I’m still scratching my head on how I got Toms in one of my LUs. I have no knowledge of clicking on him. Maybe a few too many beers when the MLB game got cancelled and I had extra $; but he got me another 5/6 LU with Fowler, Moore and Furyk.

    Edit: oh, yea, my worst LU with Castro and Stenson was the one I used for the League 50/50. Enjoy my weekly donation.

    I said 15%. WOOHOO!!! Won something this week. Do I at least get an RG tshirt?

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

    Actually an Even Par 71 would have been good with his 74

  • milanman21

    Did 3 lineups, have a 6/6 and a couple 5/6. Koepka in every lineup and every time I pick the meathead he’s either a cut or barely making the cut.

  • hammer74

    spieth gonna win this tourney

  • billholler

    No idea on my 6/6 percentage, just know it went up a lot with Koepka, Swafford and Webb sneaking in. My less than 2% ownership of Na and Stenson feels pretty good right now.

    Wishing I had faded Leishman. No idea why I keep playing that scrub. Guess he has to win something eventually.

    You are correct sir. Was doing the math for a par 72

  • billholler

    So I did the math. Had 54 out of 149 in the Birdie that were 6/6. None of those 54 have me too excited and my highest scoring LU has Branden Grace who is probably on his 14th beer now.

  • Jpitten

    24% 6/6 and 33% 5/6 in birdie. Compete fade of reed tho so little hope to break even. 25% 6/6 in dogleg

  • tklonewolf

    Na’s upcoming kid scared me off.
    I had a bleeping feeling about Spieth: good to see I was correct.
    Phil and Bubba? I had higher hopes, but the course became the real Bethpage Black today.
    Holmes, though…he has shocked me, so far. Only 5% to 7% owned in my tourneys.
