    Screw you justin Thomas you lucky backdoor cut making mother f***er

    Yesterday JT finished par-double-par-par-par so hardly a backdoor unlike Woodland, Cink and a few others who played last 2-3 holes in -2

    What you described Thomas doing is the definition of a backdoor. He was all but slamming his car trunk shut when the cut went to +2.

    Should not even be here.

    this event, it appears the early “I lost 9 holes in” seem to be more right.
    of the 19 who shot 67 or better in rd1 all made the cut
    of the 10 who shot 68 first rd 2MC
    of the 18 who shot 69 first rd 1MC
    of the 15 who shot even 70 2MC

    of the 23 who shot +1 71 10MC
    of the 23 who shot +2 72 14MC
    of the 13 who shot +3 73 11MC
    of the 22 who shot 74 or worse 20MC (cook and An)

    So I can’t seem to find clear rules on MDF. An is currently T70 if he stays there he will still play tmrw even though there would be more than 70 players correct?

    That is correct, t70 and ties will play Sunday regardless of how many there are

    Not sure you know what a backdoor is – someone who was outside the cut then makes it in last couple holes is a backdoor much like when you are laying 13 points and you are up 17 late in game and oppponent scores a meaninglessness (except to you) TD to backdoor cover and lose by 10

    He was even par for the tourney with 5 holes left, cut was +2; so he limped home in 2-over including a par on a reachable par 5 #18 which is not exactly backdooring to make cut

    Woodland who birdies 17-18 was a backdoor as was Cink who birdied 16-17

    the biggest concentration of wealth as in not average but by all individuals meeting baseline is in and around Washington DC. Falls Church Md.

    thats Falls Church VA & Potomac MD, it’s expensive living around here!

    Yah good info, this tourney more than almost any other (besides US Open and maybe a couple others) is one where it is pretty tough to battle back from a bad round or a bad nine holes because there just isn’t that many birdie opps. When you get on wrong side of cut line and the scoring average is over par, it’s damn tough to come back.

    I didn’t play any of the three you mentioned today (Im, Mitchell, JT) – this is a pretty tough course to keep shooting low at most winners here are lower than -9. Showdown is won here by your 6 guys being a combined -8 to -12; slow and steady wins the race this week. I also checked tee times and weather; glad I looked as I forgot that they hate crossover tee times here and like everyone to face Bear Pit at end of their rounds so for those guys near lead, it is a root canal appt at 4pm or 5pm local. Not much wind today just a max of 10mph but it is at its peak at 2-5pm.

    Yea ended up with JT, Im, Mitchell + Webb, Woodland, Castro as my Main team in both weekend and R3 showdown (pricing fit into both)…have it in all my cash games and mid entry tournies…little bit concerning Webb started double bogey, but he does have a streak now. Also made a few pivots off of those teams into the lower entry tournies, but pretty much all have Im and Mitchell and if it doesn’t have JT it has Brooks.

    It’s the exact same cut rule as after 36 holes (Top 70 and anyone tied with those) – they are just trying to trim the field down a bit more when a lot of guys make the 36 hole cut and they fall back without any realistic chance of moving up much.

    For those that don’t understand the MDF (when and why) – here is a good explanation

    great, glad you like it

    I got 1 of 33 LU’s 6 for 6 and little chance to make much back on entry fee’s. So I get to do my post-mortum of the week as we finish up the last 2 days. of the 5 big salaries to MC, I had a piece of 1 and big exposure on 2. leaving me a ton of 3/6’s and 4/6’s

  • superstars92

    Dang this Michael Thompson guy…makes every putt. Maybe I should choose him next time.

    JT also not doing that well for weekend…but I guess he’s in tandem with choosing such cheap guys like Im and Mitchell so need the combination of those 2 to go like -5. Webb and Woodland have been decent.

    I played An, Thompson, Garcia and Bjerragard on both Weekend and Showdown – just one lineup in each then split up Fowler/Horschel and Poston/Burns

    He is in my $44 Twirl line up, going for streak on #3!!

    Ok what do you call it when guy finishes his second round like shit, throws his clubs in the trunk and slams it shut in disgust…starts drinking in the bar then finds out an hour later that he made he cut?

    Yep nice job he got the streak. He’s has a pretty cool story, reminds me a bit of Cantlay actually. Have 0% of him overall, but luckily Webb, my highest owned, is doing something. Trying to get back to just even for the week.

    someone who gives up before its time to give up.

    McDowell, you are garbage at par saves. MDF bound.

    At least the Thompson, Kokrak, and 4 guys yet to tee off Showdown build is looking good early.

  • MrBreeze

    Rickie Tee off time, C’mon man, use your head today, no blow up holes

    EDIT: Opening Birdie!

  • Dunzor

    Doesn’t seem like there are as many bogeys out there today, lots of guys cruising along with a bunch of pars. I guess it’ll be interesting to see if the wind picks up and makes the afternoon harder.

  • fsupete01

    Went with Thompson in all my big showdowns. Not regretting it so far.

    Yea I posted that yesterday, as I didn’t even care he made the cut. I just assumed based on how he was playing, I would get like 1 round (maybe lucky to get 2) from him of 10 FPs which isn’t much. He literally isn’t the same player as he once was, I should have gone with my instinct but I didn’t and that sucks. Had like 25% of him too.
