    Not a great week for me but Sungjae won so it is all worth it.

    Guess who bet him last week but not this week?

  • eatmyturf23

    I took 2nd in the Small Fry happy meal! I finally entered the correct lineup into the happy, lol.
    (but it would have been only 15th in the biggie meal)

    Wild tournament. I think I broke even or close to it, between all my contests.

    I guess that’s ok given the insanity each day brought, let alone the whole week. Onto next week then. I hope you guys all made money or had fun.

    Yea, you’re right, 3rd is probably not a bad value compared to a lot of other weeks.

    In the Happy Meal, 1 in 8 teams had Fleetwood, but none of those teams finished in the top 27.

    My hunch is that the optimal lineup will often include top finishers even when they weren’t great value. The optimal lineup has the luxury of getting very lucky with 3 random scrubs (this week – Hubbard, Hughes, and Steele). Those three scrubs provide so much value that you can fill in the other 3 slots with overpriced talents and still have 300 leftover.

    Chokewood killed me on 18.. lost a number of tickets due to that untimely bath.. just a bad swing

  • smallANDflaccid

    My favorite moment of the day was on one of the tees with lots of spectators and televised, after someone hit instead of the usual dumb stuff to get yelled out they picked a new dumb one of “Patrick Reed Cheated!”

    Reminds me of being at Boston sporting events when the team is down, people just revert to “Yankee’s Suck” even if you aren’t at a baseball game.

  • 16HandicapPro

    The pin position nearly dictated that hole to be a 3 shot hole.. Chokewood was in great position, he could of blasted one at the stands and if he popped someone in the head or goes over, free drop with decent/good lie, great angle to pin as well.. and then have a putt (hopefully within 10 ft) to be T1st. Don’t think it can be blamed on the caddy.. worst swing of the day i bet was that swing

    I went 18 – 9 in the H2H beat the forum using two lineups.

    Congrats on the great week. You have put the volunteers back in front….Current totals including BrianVT’s final totals:

    Volunteers 96 Forum 92

    Thanks to that Fleetwood closing bogey, I earned the most expensive Milly ticket ever!

    Agree but in isolation, paying up for Fleetwood was still good value and that was what the original discussion was about.

    My best lineup did not have Fleetwood but I had multiple 5/6, 4/6 and 3/6 with Fleet, Sungjae and An that would have been better than my best lineup had I not picked Knox and had better punt(s) than MC’s by Schenk, CT Pan, Vince Whaley.

    2 people split the big $5 GPP
    They had different lineups, one had Fleetwood.
    It’s possible to have made a winning lineup with Fleet but it was also equally possible to do it without him if you had An, Im and Berger

  • noddy

    I still suck at fantasy golf although 2/5 lineups min cashed in the big $5 DK contest. On to next week.

    Congrats to all who did well.

    I disagree, the shot from just under 250 was to hit it on the middle of the green and 2-putt for a playoff. He’s also a great bunker player so hitting the front bunker was an ok miss – the hardest place to get up and down from would be anywhere left as you’d be chipping downhill at the water.

    I had multiple guys not get up and down from pin high left or just over so I think the play is go for it (but don’t miss pin high right in the water).

    I’ll take a top 10 Happy Meal any week especially after the last few weeks of placing an embarrassing 70th or worse. Figured 6/6 % had to be obnoxiously high since I got one this week. But was surprised it was as low. Still can’t figure out MKF, so close but so far. Top 10 HM and beat the forum is a good sign moving forward.

    he’s a natural draw player.. he forced a perfect shot from 250 yards out and paid for it.. he aimed for the middle of the green with a cut.. that ball should funnel towards the pin for an eagle opp to win.. that’s called a perfect shot. if you wanted to knock it up in a bunker (fine/smart play) why are you cutting the ball towards the hazard? aim for the middle, ok.. but working the ball towards the hazard ended his day! also if you cook it and miss left, you are protected by the grandstands. i think he wanted an eagle opp after making a very clutch putt on 17, then bombing a drive. nbd, it is golf and i understand him wanting to take that chance.. but whether he hits the ball perfectly or in the drink, was that a smart play?

    the key here is: he actually would of had a chip onto the green.. and a chance to birdie (maybe he even knocks it within 3-5 feet). he’s a natural draw guy, forcing a shot from 250 out to an extremely difficult/not “gettable” pin location. he’s going to do what his natural tendencies are when he’s under pressure and he couldn’t pull it off. like i said, i can understand wanting to try it.. but it was a risky proposition which backfired. that’s golf.

  • smallANDflaccid

    I think you have both made compelling arguments that hitting it in the water was not the optimal decision. Hopefully Fleetwood sees this too later outside the heat of the moment.

    Tough call – your initial post said it was a 3-shot hole because of the pin position and that’s more what I was disagreeing with as he needed birdie and there is a significant higher percentage of birdies being made to that hole with 2-putts than wedges hit close.

    Sure, the shot he had left himself with to a right side pin definitely didn’t set up to his strength (go-to shot) being a draw. However, I think it’s still a must go for it shot – whether he tried the cut/fade he hit or if he hit his stock draw that ends up rolling out and would have missed left or long doesn’t matter to me – in my mind it’s a 100% that go for that green in two every time from that spot. That’s the point I was trying to make – for me its only a 3-shot hole if you miss the fairway or have 275+ in off the tee OR if you only need a par to win.

    You are right that he was probably thinking about getting it closer than he needed to and having a look at eagle which was aggressive thinking when the shot doesn’t fit your go-to shot. I’m ok with trying a fade as it would probably be twice as likely to stay on the green if it got near the green but I would have aimed 40-60 feet farther left and if he pulled it or double-crossed it then yes the bleachers are there to keep him within 30-40 yards of the hole.

    Holy cow. Brutal weekend for the top salary guys. Apparently in the “Thunderdome” contest with the big players ($5K+ entry), zero out of 12 players had 6/6…. and only 2 of 12 had 5/6. A 4/6 won it. In case anyone was feeling down about missed cuts/poor showing/etc… a good example of the “experts” having a poor showing (although I wonder how many of them just sat out this past weekend knowing how crazy it is).

  • squidkill

    Min Cashed most of my gpps and won my H2h crapped out in the happy meal per usual Decent week

  • ajwert

    I ended up 19th in the 60k birdie for my best non-showdown golf gpp finish. Scored 441 pts with Berger, Im, watney, Clark, Kh lee, and woodland

  • ValuableTrader

    Tough week for me. Main lineup went 4/6 but still managed to beat some pro’s H2H. Happy Meal I was top 35 I think? Yuck. $2100 in, $1180 back.

    Picked the winner again, with Im, so that was nice. Had a couple huge days in NBA so dumped a good bit into Showdown golf on the weekend and got spanked.

    Even if the Honda was a birdie fest I wouldn’t like it. Idk, just not my tourney. Off to next week…

  • ifthethunder

    Congrats to you winners out there! My week was my worst PGA event of the year. Onto Bay Hill, nonetheless.

  • fishytadpole

    Was up to 3rd at one point late in the FGD, dropped out of top 20 when Im solidified the W.

    Onto next week!!
