    There are obviously some smart people on this forum that know what they are doing. I have to stay with Tiger or i’d kill myself if he did really well.

    FOMO, not lack of smarts, is the killer in golf DFS, but I’m guilty of it as well. I don’t fade enough golfers as I should, and I don’t go as heavy on some as I should. That leads to competitive weakness in the combination/permutation game that MME is. It does probably allow me to grind a little longer, though, rather than the go big or go home approach.

    Looking at the top 12 golfers this week ($9k and up), I will have ownership in 7 of them, so only fading 5. I should probably be fading 2-3 more, but just don’t have the discipline to do it. Like you said, how could I not have a little Tiger.

    People seem to love this course for DFG purposes but I do not. I hate the split course thing and I hate that this seems to mostly be a “grip and rip” course (the tougher course anyway).

    I view this as one of the most predictable tournaments on the schedule, so I do like it. As far as length, it has to be quality length. Just being a bomber doesn’t guarantee you anything. You’ve got to be long and good, or shorter and really, really good.

    idk how many lineups you are playing but im the opposite on the high priced golfers, only playing 4, 5 at the very most

    Spieth at 8.5k, you say?

  • manoffewwords

    Notorious picked Tiger as his top pick. No Surprise there.

    There were some changes to the south course last year:

    I think I am the exact opposite. I fade way to many, and go heavy with 3-4 player cores on 20 LU’s. I try to make it that 1-2 good outings in a year covers the nut +. I actually get excited by the break even win a bit weeks. Those are the long term profit/losses. Not saying any strategy is bad or wrong but we are all different.

    What I love about Golf DFS is all the variables, almost like lotto, pick 6 numbers. In Golf, its possible to get that better than everyone elses LU with just that 1 lucky or good guess. I feel capable of getting it right once in awhile.

    Did you MKF guys not get the same RG premium tag I got (3 months free upgrade)?

    I signed up for it like immediately when it came out. I love monkeys, knives, and fighting – plus I needed another dumbass username (“PrisonGrape” in this case) – then saw it didn’t take PayPal and you don’t see other users, so I ghosted it until recently.

    So I missed whatever this promo is.

    Thanks for coming to my TED talk.

    Ya same, I had signed up several months back and forgot so no free premium for me, though when I made my first deposit a couple weeks ago I did get like $50 bonus added to my account so they did at least have some nice deposit bonus stuff going

  • Dunzor

    Tee times are now posted by the way

  • Dewoc19

    I’m considering trying the Timusbr method for my 20 max this week as I’m debating locking in a couple of cheap guys at like 60-75% and just ride or die with them, because the last few weeks I’ve been very good with my top end picks for the high salary guys, but it’s my mid range and value guys that have been shitting the bed lately so I’m wondering if I’m better off only trying to nail 2-4 cheap guys instead of shotgunning across 8-10

  • BrianVT

    I play 150 lineups, guys, so that’s part of the difference. Yes, with only 20 lineups, I’d have much less at the top, but I should still probably fade a couple more in my 150.

    I just joined last week, so I got $55 bonus and 3 months of RG premium.

    I joined last week as well and got the bonus but not the 3 month of premium. I just cancelled my premium subscription though, so that might have something to do with it.

    i think nfl pro bowl has to be the #1 degen dk bet. i can’t think of anything else more of a crap shoot.

    Couldnt disagree more. It was easily my most profitable event by far in 2019. So many spectacular angles because of the uninformed public and on top of that massive overlay. Anyone paying a modicum of attention last year cleaned up.

    Even stuff like the $50 single entry was incredibly soft fields last year

    LOL good luck,

    I split myself on 2 cheap guys taking 1 spot of the 6 in 20 LU’s. Both are older guys, both have history, both are hit or miss any given week. Phat Pat and JB. 2 guys that can MC or give you a top 5.

    good luck

    It was Literally my most profitable event of the season.

    Check the thread from last year

    I prefer when angles arise that require actual sports knowledge instead of Microsoft excel pivot tables and SQL programming skills

  • shadowchap1978

    Making 10 lineups with a core of 4 guys and rotating 2 guys around in those this week. That last guy in has killed me so far this season, so changing it up a bit this week. Also going to do one lineup with Tiger/Rory this week because of FOMO.

    I’m very sorry that your 20 weeks of NFL were a disaster. I’m hoping that this year’s exhibition game makes up for all your losses in the regular and playoff season games.
