    That 78 to MDF last week not scaring you off? That’s a rough last round to have on your mind going into the playoffs

    I does scare me, but I know most people won’t touch him because of that. His recent form and major form are not that bad. He actually MCed at the Travelers right before the Open and finished 20 at the Open.

    Before that MDF, he had a good streak where he finished 12, 20, MC, 65, 7, 8, 3. In majors, he finished 21, 3, 65, 20. He’s not the Spieth he used to be, and I think everyone agrees on that, but he’s as good as anyone in his price range, and he still has some upside.

    Fun fact: Last year, my lineup would have cost $56.1K. This year, it’s exactly $50K.

    Edit: And all of my 6 guys were priced higher.

    “As I said to you guys all year, this is kind of how it is. Some days I’m stiffer than others. Yesterday (Tuesday) I was out there hitting it great with Brooksy (Brooks Koepka) and DJ (Dustin Johnson) and today I’m stiff. Hopefully I’m not that way tomorrow.”

    In other words, tomorrow the Drs will give me the correct drug injections and I won’t know the difference.

    just curious to see if anyone has stats on whether the front 9 or the back 9 will play harder?

    I forget the exact numbers, but in 2013 the front 9 was significantly easier.

    If I remember correctly, the front 9 had like 2 holes over par and the back 9 had like 4 or 5. #9 was by far the hardest though so somewhat screwed the front vs back numbers.

    The whole thought process behind this is interesting though, but I decided not to play into it. Like, do you want players who start off thurs on the easy holes to get some motivation? Or take on the harder holes with full Thursday morning energy? Or do you want the easy holes to be in line to finish out Friday when your sweating the cut line?

    I’m sure different players prefer different narratives… if the even care. Maybe someone can find some data on this?

    So, Cantlay-Niemann or Matsuyama-Finau?

    Edit: for the FGWC that is

    My vote is Finau/JT. Good luck.

    Did you really say 425?? That’s a whole lot!

    I am gonna max out my achievements. That is my goal for the last couple weeks. Normally I would rather play Gpp’s 3 Pat Mayo’s, an Albatross and every single entry $6 or less to go with 20 mme. They cost a bunch more. So with my prolonged losing streak I told myself its all the dimes I can play or single entries. This way Its like 75 in a $1.10 contest. maybe I get it up to $1.50. Ive been entering 4 in each of the qualifiers. I think I got all that DK opened.
    I am gonna create 5 more LU’s because 80 divides by 4 better than 75

    “I was getting stiff and it’s best to be smart about it, just kind of what I did pre-Augusta when I went out there and just chipped and putted for nine holes,” Woods, who underwent spinal fusion surgery in April 2017, told a pre-tournament press conference.

    Thank you for this…lol.

    @kbarnhill7523: My lineup right now has 6 guys I think can win (I went Matsuyama-Finau over Cantlay-Niemann for the moment). I don’t know if Matsuyama can really win, but he sure has a better shot than Niemann. I decided to follow my rule #1 in every major (playing it as a major): play Finau and build the rest from there. He’s not the best in important stats, but he has always been a DFS scoring machine.

    @wigg_ESEA: I’ll do the same then! I did it in the NHL forum last season and people really enjoyed the idea (it comes from Dunzor originally).

    @Pbasniper: It depends. This week, I really want to have the winner in my lineup, because it’s the FGWC. I’m going with 6 guys I think can win. I’m not always aiming for that, but this week, I want to give myself the best odds of having the winner. Having a 6/6 could be easier than usual, but having the winner is always hard.

    @timusbr: I’m rooting for you (and other forumers) too, but I know that the Happy Meal is usually pretty much the same as other GPPs, so if I do bad there, I’ll do bad in the FGWC too. I’m not playing the smaller fees contests, so you (and other forumers) can win those and I’ll be happy for you as long as no one has the same lineup in the FGWC! Did you really say 425?? That’s a whole lot!

    I’m sure I’ll end up bringing back Win Dunzor’s Money if I can hit it big in the FGWC. My team is locked and loaded and I will avoid tinkering at all costs. In the end I went with the 6 guys I liked the most ownership be damned (though I’m still pretty sure it’ll be unique due to the configuration)

    I think there will be a couple overlaps that we’ll be mutually cheering for so hopefully that core plays great and we can have multiple of the forum qualifiers in the top 10

    I tell my wife this, some days I’m stiff and some days I’m not, you know how it is.

    This reminds me of a laugh from many years ago.

    It involves a floppy disk, so it wasn’t last week.

    We had a gorgeous young lady visiting us from , I think , South Africa, where they used a version of a floppy disk called a stiffy disk.

    She politely asked if anyone had a stiffy, then wondered why all the guys burst out laughing.

    any showdown strategies for tomorrow? load up on early tee times or mix between early and late

    I don’t like loading up on early tee times in Showdown because it usually means you’ll be at the top first and then drop throughout the day, but that’s just the gambler in me speaking. I’d rather start from the bottom and climb up than hope to hold.

    Strategy wise, if there’s a big weather advantage, you should use it, but that doesn’t happen that often.

    I never like the early stack after a rain and the course is going to get rain today and overnight. I feel like it plays too soft and kills some fairway roll etc. the afternoon wave gets it as it’s firming a little more and they can get some roll but still have soft greens to attack.

    I’m sold on Morikawa, and it’s not just because he went to Berkeley. He’s super solid approaching the green, which is big for this course. I’d take him over anybody under 9k.
