    Is anyone planning on waking up or being awake for the start of coverage tomorrow?

    No, I’ll be dead asleep for the start, then heading off to work during the afternoon.

    Sorry for spamming, but here comes another decision:

    JT-Matsuyama or Schauffele-Stenson?

    I have all of them in my pool, but I’d prefer JT/Mats. Schauffele is my least favorite of the 4.

    I’d vote second. X man tends to show up in these things and Mats cannot putt to save his life.

    What is the general cutoff for it to still be morning tee times. When stacking the draws. Is there a consensus of when PM starts.

    Cantlay/Stenson and just leave the 100 on the table. I couldn’t find a single metric that I was researching this week that Cantlay wasn’t in the top 25 in. In some of the most important he’s #1.

    Not as sexy as JT but I have 5x more Cantlay than JT this week.

    Cantlay is going to get put on the clock as the Euro Tour actually enforces pace of play – wonder how he will handle that

    Won a tix for the Milly just changed around my lineup last minute so hope it doesn’t bite me in the ass, got off my main man Waring and went with EVR and Eddie P as my 2 cheapest golfers. Just seems like not many sub 7K guys have been in winning lineups lately at majors

  • qatman

    I’m really not confident in my lineup this week. Went relatively balanced and for the last slot had 7400 on DK… ended up with Hao Tong Li over Reed and ZJ. Playing smaller than usual this week although there are still several hours to MLB tilt.

    Good luck folks.

    My plan is to go to bed early and wake up around 3am CT then watch for about 4 hours before heading to the office. Probably won’t get to see that much more tomorrow as I’m working until 2:30 then I’m playing golf at 3:30. Kinda hoping that I have multiple lineups of guys who all shoot lower than me tomorrow !

    Wish I was playing golf at 3:30 tomorrow. Probably be 5:30 before I get to the course. Then again it’s probably nice and cool where you are. It’ll be touching 100 F when I hit the course

    I was looking for BIF at 6k in the player pool. You were gonna be my punt. Maybe next year.

    About 10 years doing DFS and this is the biggest night for me ever.
    60 milly tix I won, and I’ve finally made 60 unique lineups.
    Total fades of McIlroy, Rose, Koepka, DJ, Speith, Woods and Rahm.
    Anybody wanna wish me luck ?

    Thanks BerkeleyBoss and mr_papageorgio!

    I’m still torn. JT and Matsuyama are better golfers in general in my opinion, but I’m worried about their “course” history since Mike from smartgolfbets says it’s really important at the Open. Also, Schauffele and Stenson have better odds.

    Ryan Palmer 6500?

    He seems to be really good T2G when I plug in the type of course that I think Royal Portrush will play as

    I read an article a couple days ago, can’t remember where, that this course is much different than 2012. They toughened it up. They even created two brand new hole (now 7 and 8 I think) and eliminated 17 and 18 which will be used for concessions, hospitality tents, etc… It’s not a normal British Open type course. Most courses over there are pretty flat with tons of bunkers. This course is really hilly (lots of blind shots) with far fewer bunkers.

    I’m not going to take weather into consideration when picking golfers. The weather across the pond is so unpredictable. Although picking good wind and rain players wouldn’t be a bad strategy.

    less than 7 hours until lock. Time for me get to making my lineups.

    For better or worse … and due to the variables you mentioned making it very hard to predict … recent form was a big factor in my lineups and that had an effect to a degree on players who have not played much recently getting pushed down on my model. It could blow up in my face as I have some fairly popular fades. I ended up with 38 players and 32 lineups. Had 27 milly tickets. The last 10 players I cut out are going to be the difference makers on how my week goes I think and why I wish I had 60 tickets lol … that would have covered all my bases with taking my lineups and swapping/sprinkling those guys in there where I would feel like I had much better odds of having some good 6/6 regardless of what happens.
