    And the young kid Wolff at $100 more was the answer. 21 yrs young. Worth watching.

    I have plenty of him, I’m a believer in

    All the newsletter writers said Morikawa and Finau were locks. Glad I don’t listen. That is why they write newsletters.

    Well done! I also went single entry again but ended up 5/6 because of Fritelli. Still a decent chance to cash but won’t be anything big:
    Scheffler -13
    Steele -7
    Rahm -6
    Hovland -4
    Schauffele -3
    ….
    Fritelli MC

    I won $30 bucks in late showdown, plus a milly ticket with the same lineup. This NEVER happens.

    So I got that going for me. I guess some of my 5/6’s may cash in classic, too. Since the 6/6 percentage looks to be low.

    I do believe that DJ set a new record today for most Fpts(classic)
    47.5 is the highest single day total without bonus finishing pts.

  • jss1218

    I have one 6/6, three 4/6, and one 3/6 out of my 5 LUs.

    Obviously the 6/6 is looking good. Think the 4/6 have a chance in DUs?

    I see you in a bunch of satties, You were doing great. unfortunate MC’s.

    Ive seen weird things, Its possible the 5/6’s hang in there. I hope not for my sake. but If anyone on this forum can blow a lead with more golfers…its me

  • starstx

    2/60 – 6/6

    Killing me … only 4 – 5/6 though

    I got a good chunk of Top 10 and 20 that are going to need to finish well to make up for too many MC

  • jss1218

    The Moore WD and the Norlander MC were my biggest hits.

  • Baysman

    My $200 SE made it through with a 6/6

    Davis -13
    Rahm -6
    Kokrak -6
    Fowler -5
    Hovland -4
    Mcllroy -3

    We’ll see how it does over the weekend.

    good morning! was wondering if anyone uses datagolf: live strokes gained as a tool to construct weekend and showdown lineups.

    https://datagolf.com/live-strokes-gained

    if you do, how much weight do you put into those numbers?

    for example….Beau Hossler
    total SG: -.07
    however SG: Putting +1.07 and SG: OTT +0.63 doesn’t look horrible compared to others sitting at -3 / -4

    just looking for some insight – appreciate it, thanks!

    Collin Morikawa was my KSDT this week…had him in over half.

    But the surprise for me was Adam Hadwin. Usually he’s pretty steady, even when he doesn’t score well enough to make the cut. He only had 5 pars yesterday! Everything else was birdies and bogeys.

    Good Saturday Morning and YAY GOLF

    so much SD overlay and I couldn’t enter anything, either DK was having trouble or my computer, I tried two different browsers though, so I think it was DK. Had to be the reason so much overlay, difficult to enter for lots of folks. Well played DK

    Here is my single 6/6, have it in my GC Cup entry, only 5 6/6 of 141 entries

    J. Thomas
    D. Berger
    S. Scheffler
    M. Wolff
    Chez Reavie
    K. Streelman

    and a 5/6 w potential, currently 169th in the PME, it was first place Thursday for a couple of hours, hoping for another top 100 finish

    J. Thomas
    D. Berger
    M. Wolff
    H. English
    Bud Cauley live and die by making a stand, it’s ok My Man, we still good
    C. Hoffman

    Would like to see someone here win big this weekend.

    Good Luck today Y’all, we will need it.

    I think a lot of people use this data to build SD and weekend lineups but each use it differently

    With respect to Hossler, I don’t see anything that is appealing – every person at -3 is at Total SG -.07 and they all got their differently. Beau drove it ok, hit his approaches poorly, chipped/pitched it poorly and his putter saved him.

    Not exactly what I want see heading into the weekend when some guys will be gripping it a little tighter knowing their season may be over; I typically look at guys who have drove it ok and hit their approaches decent but had their short game/putting drag them down as that is the easiest part of the game to have significant variance.

    Ideally I want guys who are decent putters and having an off Thur-Fri with the putter and actually hit it better (Ball striking wise) than they do normally because if they get some positive regression with the putter, they could have a low round. Of course their ball striking could have negative regression but usually that sort of thing lasts (when it’s good or bad) about 2-4 weeks (hence why people chase recent form often) where putting has a high degree of variance from round to round.

    Just my 2 cents but 2 guys that fit what I’m looking for are Denny McCarthy and Zach Johnson; both historically very good putters who this week are losing shots with putter but gaining everywhere else ( well Denny has a small negative ARG); despite both being shorter off the tee, they are still .63 and .49 OTT so you know they are hitting fairways and using it to their advantage as both also have positive SG APP.

    Everyone uses it differently and has their approach laden with personal biases as well.

    Of the big name guys at -3/-4; Tiger and Hovland have been saved a bit by their putter to offset poor (for them) overall T2G ball striking where Xander and Rory have hit it ok but been dragged down by a balky putter. Rory’s putting is always highly variant but both him and X have missed many marketable putts and likely should -6 or -7 or even better

    thank you very much for that in depth explanation. i am really trying to understand the numbers a bit better and hopefully use them to gain an edge. i ultimately did not go with Hossler – i was primarily using him as an example.

    i mainly was looking at SG: putting and SG: OTT (not sure if those were good ones to focus on) while taking into account the other areas. i’m not sure where to access an individual players overall strokes gained so unfortunately i was just going off what i might know about a particular golfer and how they are performing in the tournament as well as looking at their past few recent performances.

    i really liked Wolf because his numbers across the board were solid just lagging in SG: putting – so hoping that his putter picks up some steam if he can continue hitting it well. ultimately my lineups turned out to be pretty chalky for the weekend minus Grillo whom i just went based off feel.

    i appreciate these more in depth discussions and i also appreciate you replying!
