    I think Koepka still gets it done this week. Throw in a little Woodland, Rose, and some lighter guys and ride off into the sunset.

    Winner: Koepka
    Fade: Fowler, Mitchell
    Low End: Hubbard

    like i thought….weighting is a joke that many like to say incase their small percentages guys hit

    its all really a shit show when it comes to “weighting”

    personally i think these lineup simulators should be illegal

    I’m not really following what you mean by it being a joke. It’s the process by which pretty much everyone picks their players, unless you just like throwing darts at a wall. How you get to your decision can be done a lot of different ways, whether it’s your own predictive model, your own understanding of players and courses, or the guys who just simply look at the data DK provides (cuts, Avg points); you’re “weighting” different things in your decision making one way or another.

    LOL’d at “10% being nice to the kids”

    Just be glad it was Brian that responded.

    The mind boggles as to the reply that Squid would give. lol

    I’m also quite curious as to what is weighted on the missing 10%.

    If you play high priced players that have 0 top tens would that make your lineup unique???

    so you want to bet koepka

    what is wrong with that?

    its his home course

    i believe his parents are from PA, but moved down there and brooks went to FSU with him now having a home at this course

    hes projected to be LOW owned

    Personally, i wonder about those projections and how they can project something

    im not stating these as facts, please correct if im wrong with anything

    LOL, crap, I didn’t even check my math there. Was typing too fast. How about 10% turning the fan on in the bathroom.

    So, you’re putting a lot of weight on where someone lives? Ok, not a bad strategy.

    I would also consider whether they’re injured or not.

    there is a big discussion on “weighted” that need to be discussed

    I guess you edited your post

    So you will hear the word ‘weight’ a lot in DFS because it can apply to different things. The two most common uses of the word in relation to DFS are:

    1) As described by some others, ‘weighting’ of factors within a model or within a decision making process to determine which things you think are most important in selecting your players. For example most people for golf weigh the factors of Recent Form (finishes in recent events played), Course History (how a guy has played on that particular course in past years), Various Stat rankings (info on different types of shots like off the tee, approach, putting can all be found on the tour website or from various pay site stat models), general strengths or weaknesses of a particular guy’s game,etc. You would then have to decide for yourself (or pay for a model that does it for you) to determine which of these factors you think are most important and then if you are using a stat model you can actual enter those ‘weights’ or percentages into the model and it will recalculate rankings based on that input.

    2) The other time you here ‘weight’ used is when people are describing how much of a particular player they have on their lineups for the event. For example if the field ownership on a player is 10% in a contest, but you own that player on 50% of your lineups, you would say that you are 40% ‘overweight’ on that player in that contest. Or vice versa you can be ‘underweight’ on a player if you own less than the field.

    he lost almost 5 strokes putting while barely missing the cut.

    I was going to ask HarryV to confirm or deny whether the “V” stood for Veins.

    But his length of RG membership, combined with his concise and unassuming posts, verify that he is not the Titan of the Industry and World’s Greatest Showdown player trolling us under a new moniker.

    Thank you for the input and your defintions, but I know what “weighted” means

    lets be honest here

    when posting “weighted”

    it is an easy way to include 100 of 144 or 156 golfers

    “weighted” is a sharp term but it is also a tout term and sharps dont post

    it stands for Vardon as in the Vardon grip

  • BrianVT

    Also, “weighting” can be used a lot of different contexts, some of which wouldn’t require adding up to 100%. If you’re doing multiple linear regression,

    like Y = B0 + B1X1 + B2X2 + BnXn

    so like Golfer Score = 90 + -10 * BOB% + 20* BOW% + -10 * SGApp, etc…

    those Bn values, the coefficients, could also be considered “weighting” and have no requirement to add up to 100. Just another example…

    True that, I had my lineups built and ready to go yesterday so today just feels like killing time waiting for the event to start. Though I cannot tell you how excited I am to wake up, grab my iPad and start following shot tracker while I get ready for work and for the full work day instead of the agonizing wait for an afternoon tee off

  • js5734

    winner – fowler
    fade – brooks fleet billy ho
    sleeper – luke list

  • Jeddy3

    I’m just excited to not have that temptation to tinker in the morning. Those always get me!

  • titanhawks

    As far as satty tiks go I’ve won six but they are from the $5 SuperSats so I’ve played $90 with my three LU’s per week to win $120 worth of tiks ugh

    This week my three LU’s have 18 golfers in 18 spots where my EURO LU’s have 11 players in 18 spots

    never doing winner fade sleeper again since I had JT (T6) and Hovland (win) in my fades; your welcome

    I don’t give a rats ass about weighting, p/owned or touts or clouts or sharps

    thinking for myself this year and doing ok so far

    wish me luck

    Get the Gold membership and upgrade the shot tracker to live golf! $9.99/Month or $64.99 for all year is decently priced I thought.

    Oh I’ve got that too, had LIVE for 3 years, but the feature groups tee off once I’m in the office so I’ll be turning that on when I get in
