    I am really liking justin thomas. Becuase I like him, I know it is going to end badly for me. Been picking some terrible teams the past 3 weeks

    To be fair, that was probably because there was a lot of terrible golfers the past few weeks…
    Or at least that’s what I’m telling myself as I’ve had a similarly brutal stretch. He may make it into a lu of two, but at the moment I have 0 Thomas, so I guess it’ll wind up working out for one of us lol

    Huh ?

    So you like Noren or don’t ?

    I love Noren !!!! and Leishman, and…

    I dont see why it Would be Noren as the winner…

    Was just about to post something about him. He is in good form and usually is low owned. I will have him in my lineup.

  • SmokeyTheBear

    got $200 to play with this weekend, going big or going home. what’s a better strategy, 10 entries into the milly maker or 20 into the $4 and 6 into the milly?

  • miggs6876

    @Quadhole said...

    Opps, I meant wouldn’t… Let me clarify, I thought it would be understood. I meant WOULDN’T . There is no reason why it wouldn’t be NOREN… Kind of a double negative !

    And again, there is NO collusion between Noren and I…

    Best post ever….Lmaf. I have some land to sell for those who believe that outrageous claim.

    I am going to follow the type of plays from the past several majors…

  • hbomb57

    First time playing Tiger in a major. I feel this is one where he has a chance to win or at least contend. If the weather or rough was in play as it is usually for a Open Championship I would expect him to miss cut but feel the condition of this golf course though still very difficult will not play against his current weaknesses. (Driver). I could be wrong but just a feeling.

    I have this vision of Poulter knowing every perfect bounce to get the perfect carry to the green… I know he’s no bomber but his combo of accuracy off the tee and scrambling and overall form looks so strong… Plus he was really good last year in the Open too

    And he’s one of my favorite golfers so I will be overweight on him.

  • noddy

    No one playing Bubba?

    Nah not me. Poulter at the same price I would much rather have him. Even Adam Scott has a great history at the Open at that price too.

    Though don’t think he has his cheater putter so not too sure about him.

    So just think about the bonus happiness you will have If/when he does well and makes you money. :)

    I am going with the GOAT as in Fleet not Tiger

  • Bastardo

    what is Noren’s projected ownership? I really like him this week. What about Sergio’s? thanks

    Put 8 line ups in both, then paypal me the leftover 8$ for the advice.

    I’d play the 20 max if I were you and there are probably some good 3 or 5 max tourneys on DK. The MM is such a crap shoot that seems like its only worth it if you can max it out or at least have 50 or so lineups.

    150 in the 50cent
    20 in the $1
    1 in single entry $33
    1 in MM
    1 in single entry $12
    and 5 in the $8 5max

    oops you need $15 for the league $9, $5, $1

    Specialist guy advises against Day but…Day is 8th in the field in Carry Distance (which may be important) and one of the best, if not the best scrambler. He’s the type of guy who can afford to bomb while others are clubbing down.

  • keephustlincuz

    I posted my bomber lineup in the league. Who wants to get crushed and lose a dollar.

    Specialist guy gets more wrong then right.

    He has some good info, just the idea that even being slightly above field average in 5 categories he chooses makes you a “specialst” is odd.

    16th worst golfer according the that criteria is Dustin Johnson.

  • noddy

    I am 100% DJ and almost 100% ZJ…what could possibly go wrong?

    The biggest thing people forget about the specialist data is that it is relative to the golfer’s own baseline. So while DJ is low on the list, he’s so far ahead of the pack in Strokes Gained normally that this being a slightly worse course setup for him doesn’t mean he’s gonna fail. Similarly if a journeyman gets picked as the specialist it just means that if he’s gonna have a good week this is a prime spot for it, but his baseline is still low so even improved over his average may not be enough to contend or win.

    Luckily he started adding the list to the article that factors current form / CH & specialist rating together which is a bit more useful than just hte specialist tag, but still remember where the baselines are.

  • monarch

    Looking at creating a bombers LU as well…stumbled on that Woodland has made six (6/6 career) consecutive cuts at the Open and also the past two US Opens on Links style courses. That’s 8/8.

    I see what you did there! LOL

  • manoffewwords

    16 of 26 golfers Europeans. 65% of ownership late tee times. Can 5 mph increase in afternoon be a game changer on this course? Looking forward to annual rite of getting up at 1:30 in mornings. Got burned last 2 weeks by going with chalky mis priced players. ZJ and Finau will be the home folks that burn me this week. Great. Weekend golf back

  • mitchsnyderdfw

    When is Breeze gonna post the #beattheforum H2H’s? I got $1 burning a hole in my DK account with so many options.

    I was wondering if anyone would catch it…. Gotta Love that “double negative” comment… Where does it end… Funny stuff for people to laugh at one day.
