    picked a terrible week to play more

    -674 on Yahoo (Glover, Im, Z.Johnson, and I joined the $109, $270, and $50, but the damn things filled with 5 seconds left)
    -10.5 on fanduel (RCB, Cantlay, Cejka)
    -10 on fantasydraft (Cejka, RCB, and Xander)
    -75 on DK (10 lineups, best score was only 442.5)

    I squeaked out a small profit on yahoo avoiding the Gooch and Henley bombs because I had Hideki, Woods, Sergio, and Rory but my 3 DK lineups were all destroyed by Leishman and Cantlay

    Full disclosure, I have no idea what it got to in previous years but I have to imagine a lot

    Awesome job man! Congrats to you and the others who won tickets. Let us know how you do at the Masters! I always waffle back and forth on these single/low entry satellites as if I should play the same lineup in all or differentiate between them.

    As far as this week, I was slightly up if you only count GPP and broke even after my satellite losses. Had the right top end players minus Cantlay but didn’t have the correct low end plays. But NASCAR keeps rolling…another 100%+ plus week on my entry fees…

    You made me sweat for those tickets for sure haha. Nice lineups man

    Last year, the Masters thread hit 259 pages.

  • smallANDflaccid

    I only did 2 h2h (usually enter ~200 but not all get taken) this time as I only had ideas of what to do for high variance
    lost both (beat the forum and danasin’s Tiger thing)

    But won some $ by getting into smaller single entries, 3max, and 5max – need to get back to doing more of the small ones for sure.

    As my mind shifts to the next event in Tampa, The Valspar – I saw an interesting Sponsor Exemption – a 17yr old amateur

    ———from a Golf Channel article——-
    Akshay Bhatia, the 17-year-old reigning AJGA Rolex Junior Player of the Year, has received a sponsor exemption into the 2019 Valspar Championship. Bhatia is ranked eighth in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. He recently won the Jones Cup and is coming off a year in which he won the Boys Junior PGA, AJGA Polo Golf Junior Classic and Junior Invitational at Sage Valley. He also received an invite to last December’s Walker Cup practice session at Seminole. The Valspar, set for March 21-24 at Innisbrook Resort in Palm Harbor, Fla., will be Bhatia’s first PGA Tour start.

    Valspar Championship to feature “Spring Break” fan-friendly initiatives

    The Valspar Championship could be a victim of the PGA Tour’s new condensed schedule, as the Innisbrook Resort tournament is sandwiched between the Players (the tour’s flagship event) and the WGC-Match Play. So Valspar officials are doing everything they can to attract interest.
    Which apparently includes “Spring Break” theme initiatives for both players and fans.

    The Golf Channel’s Will Gray pointed out these endeavors on Twitter Wednesday afternoon, leading us to the tournament’s homepage. The Valspar boasts that the idea is borrowed from Major League Baseball’s “Players Weekend,” designed to celebrate the game’s personalities and passions. Some of the features include:

    Caddie Vests featuring Player Nicknames or Social Handles
    Players can choose the nickname or social handle they would like on the back of their caddie vest.

    Player Superlatives
    Fans can vote on items like “Most Colorfully Dressed,” “Most Compatible Player/Caddie Partnership,” and “Most Likely to Paint His Own Home.” (Got to get that Valspar tie-in.) The winners will be revealed on the first tee during the tournament.

    Player-Selected Honorary Observers
    Players are allowed to chose one person to walk with them inside the ropes during tournament rounds.

    Music During Pro-Am
    Players will receive a portable speaker during Wednesday’s pro-am, so long as they get approval of the rest of the group.

    Early commits to the Valspar include Jason Day, Jon Rahm, Bubba Watson and Sergio Garcia. Akshay Bhatia, a 17-year-old prodigy, is also expected to tee it up at the Copperhead Course.

    He has also decided to skip college and turn pro next year.

    “Most likely to paint his own home”

    Bahahaha, I think before we had JB Holmes as a golfer most likely to fix his roof if you guys all remember that “discussion”!!!

    SOF should be better than Honda. DJ, Casey, Webb, Fleetwood, Woodland, Stenson, and Bubba have committed in addition to above.

    I saw that 17 year old kid win some sort of Dustin Johnson award or something. He’s got glasses, I saw the kid on some GC special. The next big thing

    Seems kinda cocky.. hes young though, I’m sure will be humbled. Hope the best for him! Seems talented.

    The next big thing

    I’ve heard that so many times and very few actually become anything and those that do have little staying power….If Spieth didn’t win all those majors, I’m almost ready to put him in that list too (with no staying power) but the last few can’t miss kids that turned pro failed (Ty Tryon, Tadd Fujikawa even Justin Rose and Sean O’Hair struggled early on but obviously righted the ship at some point).

  • Kp24

    Yeah BIF I guess in the last year we’ve had Xiong, Champ…who am I forgetting, idk I been drinking but they all come in with the “next big thing” tag. You’ve been at this much longer than I, you prolly don’t blink an eyelash at the next big thing

    Don’t forget Ryo Ishikawa….although I feel at this point Ty Tyron has the award locked up.

  • Gathon11

    Bhatia is another Genkas prodigy. He dominates junior events because he’s a lights out putter and can hit it 30 yards past everyone, a lot like the hot college player Matthew Wolf also a Genkas guy. Ball striking will be suspect, as with most Genkas guys.

    Tadd Fujikawa is an interesting story too but yah Ty Tryon may have it

  • dangasin

    I think I get jaded by spieth’s epic performance from 2013-2017. Last season he doesn’t land any wins, but still manages 5 top 10s out of 24 events and I’m ready to write him off. Really wasn’t THAT bad of a season…
