    At 17:15 in this video, can someone tell what type of equipment is in the background? Guy is on a red piece of equipment going back and forth at a pretty high speed.

    Anyone see Phil’s video about fasting for 6 days on water and coffee and losing 15 pounds? Guy is losing his mind about his golf game.

    Not sure what it’s called, but that’s what they mow the greens real short with.

    They are rolling the greens. Not cutting. That is how they get them to a certain speed.

    When are the final options usually added? Kind of like Frittelli here and for some reason FD doesn’t have Wiesberger yet…

  • kps3205s

    So only have 2 satellite tickets for the million this week. Core of 2, 3 or 4 for these 2 lineups as that is all I am playing throughout all of the contests?

    I’m thinking 3 or 4 to keep it simple for me as I don’t pay for any of the big research sites and mostly play single LU weekly.

    Any assistance is appreciated and let’s make some money this week!!

    It’s my week for the h2h challenge. I put 40 contests up at all different levels (10 $1, 10 $2, 10 $5, 5 $10 and 5 $20). I set it so you can only scoop one of each. Wasn’t sure of how many to make so if I made too many let me know and I can take some down.

    I’m traveling all day on Wednesday so I need to get everything locked in on Tuesday PM/Wednesday AM.

    Come get the free money!

    Gonna be my first foray into some decent multi-entry in a while. I’ve got I think 23 milly tickets and then will probably enter my first 20 lineups in the $4 or $5 dollars as well. I’m thinking that I’ll probably break it down into 3 or 4 subgroups of lineups where I lock in a core of probably 4 guys in each grouping and then rotate the last couple of spots. That way if any of the cores hits I’ll have a handful of lineups to sweat. I know some of the big MME guys just pick their own% they want and let the builder fill in the rest but I feel like the core groupings method is closer to my single bullet roots of going heavy on ‘my’ guys

  • TrustinthePlan

    Last week was very disappointing for me. Had 2 6/6s in sateys and lost to a 5/6 in both of them, one by just one point. Anyways, I got one ticket and probably will throw a 20 down for another entry. A lot of Euro guys that did well at the Irish are in the 6ks, which surprises me. I like McDowell and Henrik as most people, but I think you will have to dip down in the mid 6ks this week if you want to squeeze in a Brooks, Henrik, and McDowell lineup. Robert Rock anyone?

    Haha, Mickelson went on a 6 day fast and lost 15 pounds.

    Not sure if this makes me like him more or less.

    I have 55 tickets and when I MME I build all my lineups by hand.

    Usually, after Phase 1 my “core” is in like 65-70% of my builds. I then go through and hand lower at each level to get my“core” in to 45-50% and then spread the other 15-20% out amongst a much larger pool of players.

    I’ll also generally have an A+ build that is my main lineup that I will make 7-8 different versions of just that lineup only switching out one guy at a time.

    Chlll out, Harman in.

    At least I don’t have to kick myself for not playing him this week.

  • jss1218

    Thoughts on Chez Reavie? Last 4 PGA events he has 2 top 5s (including a win) and 2 missed cuts. He keeps showing up in my models though. And he is cheap.

  • jss1218

    Speaking of models, what are people looking at this week? I am looking at SG:OTT, Scrambling, GIRs Gained and Putting. I never weigh Putting too heavily though as I feel anyone can get hot with the putter on any given week. And I don’t want to miss out on a guy who is doing great in the other categories but not putting well.

    Not sure what he’s exactly referring to, but I think Felixxberg posted some analysis on this in the PGA thread. Hope he checks this since he is the one with the data and I forgot the exact numbers.

    I scrolled through my past posts and found it, so I’ll just copy paste:

    So, I just looked at the Milly Maker winning lineups for the past 5 majors (1 this year, 4 last year). The lowest golfer was Woodland at $7.0K, and the highest was Spieth at $10.4K.

    The lowest priced golfer in each was (lowest to highest): $7.0K, $7.1K, $7.2K, $7.4K, $7.5K.
    The highest priced golfer in each was (lowest to highest): $9.0K, $9.5K, $9.9K, $10.2K, $10.4K.

    Another interesting fact is that Finau was in 4/5 winning lineups. He was priced lower though.

    So, the winning formula is to start with Finau, then not have any below $7.0K punt and no one priced higher than $10.5K.

    End of copy paste. Now I can add this year’s PGA Championship and US Open.

    The PGA Championship Milly winner had the perfect lineup, which is crazy lucky. 3 of his 6 guys were below 4%. Lowest was $6.7K and highest was $11.1K.

    I can’t find the winning lineup for the US Open. I would guess the lowest was Reavie ($6.9K) and highest was Koepka ($11.6K).

    So, the balanced approach didn’t win the last two majors, but it won the 5 previous ones. The thing is, there are 30 guys in the $6.6K-$6.9K range but only 10 in the $8K-8.9K range. Finding the right punt is harder than going balanced.

    DK pricing is directly correlated to tournament odds to win at time of salaries being released. Webb is 80-1. You’d think their PGA pricing would be more dynamic like it is in say MLB or NBA, but that’s not the case. It’s actually pretty straightforward right on down the line.

    Sometimes I wonder what the bet sites’ algorithms know that we don’t!

    Yeah that eliminates a decision for me. I was looking closely at ch3 for 6800. Any guesses on harmans price?

    @keephustlincuz said...

    I’ll say about 20. Keep a tight core. If you miss you miss. If your core is solid and you nail a few low owned guys you should hit big.

    Makes sense. Thank you!

    Kbarnhill, you have had success and you seem to have a process. I was wondering how you go about your construction.

    I evaluate, and come up with preferences. then I use my preferences start LU’s. Basicly finding my core and salary constraints. then I wheel my remaining player pool with the core (cores). I edit out a bunch of LU’s. I build 1 cash team, usually my pick to win with a more balanced player set, and what I think is highly owned. Then I revisit the player pool and build a LU as if I was going to single bullet.

    When you construct. what requirements constraints enter your thoughts? How do you differentiate the A+ from the rest? How do you determine a single bullet for a single entry contest?

    basicly I am getting tired of my A+ LU’s being more F, in a subset of a C+ player pool. How do you do it?

    He made my first cut, I’m thinking he’ll make it into at least 1 or 2 out of 20

  • lfn1992

    If you guys are looking for an interesting EURO punt, I’m currently thinking about including Jazz Janewattananond at $6.7k. I wouldn’t call him strictly a links play, but when his approach is dialed in his game should theoretically do well for links golf.
