    I saw you up in like 7th place in a NFL thing for like $10k – well done (apologies if I have exact numbers off, but I did see you way up there)

    I was 7th in the Milly before the Sea-Ari game played. Dropped to 327 because of Wilson/ Lockett pts. Dropped about $2,000 more because of a missed FG which created an overtime. But I sure still got a lot of tickets.

    Doesn’t sound like there will be a shot tracker this week.

    I was watching a podcast and dude said shot tracker will be there this year.

    Anyone know what the weather was like last year? This year the wind looks pretty intense, particularly on Friday.

    Thanks. If thats the case arent the South Africans known for being good wind and bermuda players?

    Since there’s a cut line I will be MME-ing this event – not sure how many LUs. 75?

  • lfn1992

    Oh look, there’s Barracuda Brice at $7200 – LOCK AND LOAD

    I’m probably playing Jason Dufner this week because he’s way too cheap, so I’m ready to tilt missed putts all week.

    i see there’s featured groups this week. Hoping this means there will be a shot tracker?

  • BrianVT

    I see a lot of good $7k range options; don’t think I need to dip down lower than that.

    There’s a couple guys in the 6s I don’t mind, but yeah I’m likely to stay at 7k and above as well for my core this week.

    If I were playing more than just a handful of lineups, I might consider Swafford and Gligic, but saving my money for other tournaments.

    Hey, for $100 less you can have…KSDT!!!

    P.S. On a more serious note, I do have Michael Gligic in 2 of 7 lineups. Might add more lineups later, but right now I don’t feel the need.

    Winner: Zalatoris
    Fades: Todd/Doc/Stenson
    Sleepers: Sang-Moon & Oda

    SMB was solid here until the weekend last year and is far outperforming his salaries at these alternate field events (35th/35th/28th).

    I’ll happily take a top 30 for $6.4k this week.

    Augusta National Golf Club to host ESPN College GameDay during Masters

    October 27, 2020

    Fred Ridley, Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club, announced today the 2020 Masters Tournament, scheduled for Nov. 9-15, will provide an expansive slate of content across multiple platforms, including ESPN’s College GameDay airing live from Augusta National on Saturday, Nov. 14.

    “Given the circumstances brought about by the pandemic, the delivery of quality content is as important as ever to the storytelling of the Masters Tournament,” said Ridley. “While we will dearly miss our patrons at Augusta National this fall, we are excited to showcase what promises to be a truly memorable Masters in a variety of ways for viewers around the world.”

    One such way is the addition of College GameDay, which is scheduled to take place from 9 a.m. – Noon before the live CBS broadcast of the third round. The studio will be staged overlooking Ike’s Pond and the 9th green of the Par 3 course.

    “When exploring ways to showcase a fall Masters, we were drawn to the concept of hosting College GameDay at Augusta National to introduce the Tournament to a new audience and provide even more anticipation and excitement to the event,” Ridley continued. “We appreciate the collaboration with ESPN, our longtime broadcast partner, for this first-of-its-kind opportunity.”
    In addition, the global television audience of the Masters will experience new and enhanced views of the unique November Tournament, as Augusta National has worked with CBS Sports to showcase distinctive angles and shots from around the course.

    Throughout the week, live coverage of the Masters will be broadcast to more than 200 countries and territories. The American Forces Network will also broadcast the event to U.S. military installations throughout the world.
    In the United States, live coverage of Tournament play will begin Thursday, Nov. 12, from 1–5:30 p.m. ET on ESPN and continue at the same times Friday, Nov. 13. CBS will again provide weekend coverage on Saturday, Nov. 14, from 1–5 p.m. ET, before airing the final round from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 15. The Par 3 Contest, which is traditionally played on the Wednesday prior to the Masters Tournament and broadcast by ESPN, has been canceled.

    “The fun and excitement of watching Masters competitors with their friends and family is what makes the Par 3 Contest such a special part of Masters week,” stated Ridley. “We know that experience could not have been replicated without guests and patrons at Augusta National, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to bring back this signature tradition.”
 
For the fourth consecutive year, the Masters will air a live 4K broadcast of the Tournament in the United States, featuring action from Amen Corner – the 11th, 12th and 13th holes of Augusta National – as well as the 15th and 16th holes.  
 
During Tournament week, Masters Digital will feature exclusive live video, scoring, interactive player tracking, groupings, video highlights, in-depth Tournament news coverage and more. The site will also feature a new live feed in November, highlighting the action from the 4th, 5th and 6th holes. Featured hole coverage will also be available on ESPN+.  
 
Building upon the Emmy Award-winning “Every Shot, Every Hole” technology from 2019, Masters Digital will unveil the “My Group” feature for the 2020 Tournament. Similar to a personally tailored Featured Group, “My Group” allows fans from around the world to build a personalized feed of every shot from their favorite players, ensuring they won’t miss any of the action during the Tournament.

    In an effort to share the latest news from the Tournament, the Masters has launched a free daily email newsletter for fans. Delivered directly to their inbox from Augusta National, this newsletter will provide fans with exclusive content and highlights of the day’s action, while also helping them plan their viewing schedule for the day ahead.

    Returning in 2020 is the official Masters podcast “Fore Please! Now Driving…” which invites patrons and fans to follow along as host Marty Smith explores Tournament storylines and visits with notable guests across sport, entertainment and pop culture. Episodes will be published daily from this year’s Masters Tournament.  
 
For iPhone®, iPad® and Android phones, the Masters Tournament will release free apps designed to complement the television broadcast or to be used independently to follow Tournament action.  
 
Golf fans can also stay informed of Tournament news by following @TheMasters on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and YouTube. On Snapchat, the Masters will feature a new augmented reality experience on the platform, allowing users to scan the iconic Masters logo and bring it to life inside the Snapchat app, using Snapchat’s Marker Technology, where Masters fans can use their Snapchat camera to unlock unique virtual experiences.
 


    The 84th Masters is set to begin on Thursday, November 12 with Jack Nicklaus and
    Gary Player acting as Honorary Starters. Tee times will be announced at a later date, but players will be scheduled to start off the first and 10th tees in two waves the first two rounds.

    This is new right?

    Is this because of reduced sunlight?

    Half of me thinks, “Good for ESPN for taking advantage of this unique time to have this sort-of combined event. They had to do it.”

    The other half of me thinks, “Cheap bastards, trying to save coin hosting 1 event instead of 2”

    More Masters news…..

    DUE TO THE lack of daylight during what will be a first Masters Tournament in November, the event will utilize a two-tee start in threesomes with morning and afternoon waves for the first two rounds, Nov. 12-13.

    A two-tee start is standard practice at PGA Tour events with large fields, but the Masters has an invitational field that is usually fewer than 100 players. Players typically start in threesomes off the first tee with the first times beginning around 8 a.m. and stretching until 2 p.m

    Yes – just added a post about it

    It has been done a couple times before mid tournament for one day because of weather incoming or else to the next day when a weather delay made it so play couldn’t finish one day

    Anyone watching the NCAA golf on now from East Lake – some good golf !

    I like this when they have NCAA golf Mon-Wed to tie me over between PGA events

    This week I predict a crap shoot. Which is why MME sounds so freakin enticing.
    strength of field low
    Windy as hell
    on a birdiefest course (which I predict will be closer to par than many expect)

    Who are the wind players? and just because they played well in an event which I indicated as windy, does that make them good this week? I like my chances against the average DFS’r. Now will I be correct and does this even up a smidge my chances against the way more knowledgeable?

    I never MME but I am playing more entries than a normal week – not sure if I’m enticed by the weak field or just that I’ve played here a few times but I’m going to go with 40-50 lineups this week and hope I can bingo something.

    Me, BIF and Tim in an MME steel cage match this week!
