    Can’t decide if I’m upset or not Erik Compton isn’t available for full week contests because I’d have way too much of him.

    I was pretty upset that Blayne Barber is not listed. Pretty good CH, would be a nice punt play.

    Don’t think I would be on Compton though

    The thing about proximity distances that you look at is pretty player dependent. Essentially while most holes may be in that 400-450 range, if the guy you are looking at is a long hitter that likes to hit driver well then you’re gonna want to look at his 100-125 range most likely whereas if your guy is a iron off the tee / straight shooter type then you’re gonna want to focus on the 150-175 distance for proximity.

    That is why in general I don’t think it makes sense to just rank the whole field on a particular distance in a stats model, but it can be a good thing to look at once you narrow your player pool and figure out what style golfer they are

    Makes sense. Thanks, man…

    Another week where I have zero of the “specialist”.

    I think that is perfectly fine this week, nobody has amazing specialist numbers and this course is less of a ‘stats’ course and more of a mental grind course

    Probably why there is no Rahm.

    Yeah I get the feeling we are going to see a lot of different ones. It sure sounds like people are afraid of the low priced guys this week… I actually don’t mind a few. I like the Cink chalk down there but am also taking a risk with some Streelman. Otherwise a Hoffman share or 2 but other than that keeping it above 7K and closer to the 7.5K range.

    Yikes, I am off all 3 of those… I was thinking that there were going to be a lot of guys in the 7-9% range… between 6.8 and 7.8

  • smallANDflaccid

    Yeah I faded Rahm entirely too.

    I think there are like 6 holes you can hit driver on this course. So guys like Kokrak are either going to be hitting out of the rough, or are going to have to club down and hit longer approaches then he is used to.

    This is why I am all over guys like Knox this week. Great DA% but will most likely club down, and is good at long approach, this is his normal game. Same with lower tier guys like Cink, not reliant on his driver.

    Think that has a lot to do with weather in the past. I thin even the Harrington win was bad weather. 3 of the last 6.

    I totally agree and am playing basically all less than driver / long iron guys myself

    Not sure on ownership, but if ST was reasonably accurate in Mexico, he was spraying the hell out of his driver. I usually target Noren, but I’m off this week.

    had Noren early but edited him out. I dont think I am the only one

    Well idk id I’m ever the best to take advice from lol

    I think we’ll have some concentrated ownership on Cink but otherwise I’m not sure anybody “likes” anybody else down there. I could see Knox, GMac, and maybe Kirk in that range. Otherwise I’m guessing mostly sub 5%.

    So you’re favoring Proximity than a bit further out than 125-150, right?

    I would focus on 150-200 for most of the field as that will likely be the make or break distance for most of them this week

    Yep, it also has me off of ZJ even though he is a less than driver guy, his long approach is pretty bad. He is elite from 100-150 though. So it all depends on his course management.

    That changes things in terms of my thought on Brian Harman; just noting for the record…

  • nicholasmarsh

    Sung Kang anyone?

  • ButBongoFiesta

    I really hope Austin Cook and Sergio play well this week

  • Quadhole

    Having trouble on FGM this week not showing stats for much of the field. All the top players for some reason, stats are blank… hmmm

    Ben Coley has a streak going of the guys he touted winning the next week. I was giving serious consideration to Noren because he backed him last week.

  • Dunzor

    FYI, not sure if it was mentioned here or not but for those of you who were considering Chris Stroud, he has WD from the Honda Classic
