    Last year, my lineup was a 6/6, with an ACE, and still lost all my double ups.

    Dustin Johnson will need at least a top 11 finish in The Players to remain #1 … anything worse than a top 11 finish means that we will have a new #1 after next week

    That’s interesting, this week that just finished it was on JT to achieve a top 12…but I guess based on the two year rotation or whatever it is this week must be pushing out a DJ win or something so that it’s on him to keep it rather than JT needed to move up to catch him

    Really want to see how Henrik Stenson will be priced.. I imagine he will be very chalky? His GIR % and Scrambling this year combined with 3 top 6 placings in a row and with great course history here..

    Really hard to not want to take all of the Stenson. Then again, I still have a lot I need to research. Don’t know enough yet about this course lol. I shall learn!

  • noddy

    Oh man I wish I hadn’t seen Molinari’s course history. I don’t like playing that guy, but he’s done pretty well here.

    His CH is okay, but his few missed cuts mean guys like Sergio, Tiger, ZJ, and Matsyuama look a little better

    Spieth hasn’t won in a while, and has played like turd at Players for years. Sign me up.

    I think a motivated DJ here could be dangerous. As well as Rahm but I also have memories of this course give Rahm fits last year. I believe all 50 of the worlds OWGR top 50 are gonna play this weekZ

    Pricing should be verrrrry interesting

    Ya I don’t see this as being a course that Rahm is gonna do well at least for a couple more years for him to get the hang of it and be able to calm his temper when he makes the inevitable double/triple. The DJ / JT #1 thing might be interesting and will probably dominate the headlines along with the fact that Phil & Tiger are paired together.

    I’m going with a new strategy this week since I feel i’ve over-researched of late so I have my list of players already set, just waiting on salaries to see if I can fit them together at which point I am locking in and refusing to tinker barring injury. Hopefully it is a successful experiment.

    T52 are playing as of last week rankings then we have no Dylan Frittelli at 53 or Thomas Pieters at 55.

    Feels like an Ollie week

    Oh wait, it’s always an Ollie week for you 👍

  • manoffewwords

    Did they modify the new drivable par 4? Believe it was hole 12. Everyone complained how horrible the design was. Everyone was just hitting 5 iron and wedge,because of the runoff to water on left side.

  • dangasin

    Players Tiger H2H challenge this week. I play tiger, you don’t. $1H2H if anyone is interested.

    As usual I’m in – I’ll send in the afternoon a little after salaries come out.

    The previous year’s champion has not done well so that’s a No for me.

    I guess the Players Championship is an invitational tourney since Aaron Wise is not playing?

    The PGA Tour has a policy whereby all professional players who finish in the top 10 of the prior week’s PGA Tour event, except for World Golf Championships, automatically get into the next open PGA Tour event, meaning a non-invitational, major or World Golf Championships tournament. If, for whatever reason, a player who finishes inside the top 10 cannot get into the next open event (because it’s full), then those players are exempt into the next open event after that which has an open spot in the field.

    True kind of – it’s more of an event that has strict qualifications to get in – even though they say the Masters is an invitational, I see it more like thos event where you get invited IF you qualify. I think of Invitationals more like Jack’s tourney at Muirfield Village where he kinda has unlimited “sponsor” exemptions to invite who he wants.

    I copied this (eligibility for Players) from an article that was a couple years old but still likely applies.

    Win an official PGA Tour event since the previous year’s Players Championship. (This is Wise needed to win)

    Finish among the top 30 players on the previous full season’s FedEx Cup points list.

    Be among the top 125 finishers from the previous full season’s official PGA Tour money list.

    Win a major championship (Masters, U.S. Open, British Open, PGA Championship) or The Players Championship title within the previous five years.

    Win the FedEx Cup as the overall PGA Tour champion during the previous three years.

    Win a World Golf Championships event (Bridgestone Invitational, Accenture Match Play Championship, Cadillac Championship or HSBC Champions) during the previous three years, provided you were a PGA Tour member at the time of victory.

    Finish among the top 50 players in the current season’s world rankings or among the top 10 players from the current season’s FedEx Cup points list, as of a specified cut-off point.

    Win the previous year’s Senior Players Championship.

    Finish as the leading money winner from the previous full season’s Nationwide Tour.

    Be one of the players just outside the top 10 on the current season’s FedEx Cup point list. If all the spots have not been filled through the other criteria, the 144-man Players Championship field is completed with PGA Tour members from the current season’s FedEx Cup points list starting with the 11th position and going in order (as of the cut-off point) until the field is full.

    Just looked at last years’s final round

    Rickie shot 79 with 3 balls in water
    Rose shot 80 with 2 triples (only 1 water ball)
    Day shot 80 with 4 balls in water including going 9-5 (quad-double) on #16-17

    Trouble lurks around every corner and nobody is immune to it.

    Cooper – Wiki had this on The Memorial Tournament

    The Memorial Tournament is one of only five tournaments given “invitational” status by the PGA Tour, and consequently it has a reduced field of only 120 players (as opposed to most full-field open tournaments with a field of 144 or 156 players). The other four tournaments with invitational status are the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the RBC Heritage, the Fort Worth Invitational, and the Quicken Loans National. Invitational tournaments have smaller fields (between 120 and 132 players), and have more freedom than full-field open tournaments in determining which players are eligible to participate in their event, as invitational tournaments are not required to fill their fields using the PGA Tour Priority Ranking System. Furthermore, unlike full-field open tournaments, invitational tournaments do not offer open qualifying (aka Monday qualifying).

    In June 2014, the PGA Tour approved a resolution to grant the winner a three-year exemption, one more than other regular Tour events and on par with winners of the World Golf Championships, The Tour Championship and the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

    Field of 120 = 6/6 will be high in this tournament

    I don’t think I can play cash games this weekend. Course is too hard and I can’t handle double and triple bogeys. Think I’ll just throw a bunch of lineups in the big $5 GPP.

  • ButBongoFiesta

    I love this tournament because it’s in my backyard and the first golf tournament I ever went to but in terms of DFS this week is a true throw some darts and pray for the best. Between the course and having the top 50 players it’s almost impossible to predict what will happen.
