    JT playing in France next week. Anyone concerned that he won’t play hard this week?

  • flip4flop

    I volunteered for the National on page 1 or 2 but if someone else is better for it than they can have it.

    On an unrelated note…. Did anyone enter the lottery for masters tickets for next year? When do you normally hear from them if you got tickets?

  • dsmodi

    You normally hear by mid July. Good luck, it’s an amazing place to visit.

    I second that, even after 18 years, I still remember every inch of Augusta, life changing for a Golf fan indeed.

    Whats the putting surface? Bent or Poa?

    The course features Bentgrass from tee to green surrounded by bluegrass fescue roughs.

    http://travelerschampionship.com/course-info/

    Per golfstats.com:

    The tees and fairways are a 3/8″ cut of Bent Grass, while the greens are a 1/8″ cut of Bent Grass. The rough consists of a mixture of Kentucky Blue Grass, Perennial Rye Grass, and fine Fescue cut at just over 6 inches.

    Ahh yes, loved the classic cartoons growing up, Pepe, Foghorn Leghorn, Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Daffy, Marvin the Martian, all classic stuff there.

    18 golfers this week at the moment. I’ve decided to narrow the player pool a bit. Fading top 3, but do have a little Spieth, Reed, Day, Casey, Bryson, Webb. Was on Ryan Moore, but thinking he may be a trap; naturally, Moore wins. As I type this, I wondering why I’m playing Jordan… Maybe I should move the Spieth shares… Ugh. Not much down super-low this week. I’m looking at Perez, Reavie, Sabbs and Spaun below $7.6K. I imagine I may end up with some Beau Hossler due to his cut-making ability. His SG-APP has me a bit worried, but his GIR makes up for it. Driving accuracy was also an initial concern, but remembering driver not necessarily a must here so that helps.

    Off to hand tinker my 20 LUs! I had to get in the $1 before it filled. DK is so dumb, yet they still make money hand-over-fist. Imagine if it were a well-run company

    A few FWIW per golfstats.com:

    The course, last year played to a 70.20 average making it the 20th hardest on tour.

    1,527 birdies were made last year making it the 40th hardest on tour.

    Last year the par 4s average was 4.03, it ranked 28th on tour last year

    Par Breakers: Last year TPC River Highlands was 20th toughest on tour.

    Scrambling: last year, the course was the 10th hardest on tour.

    Of the last ten champions in the total number of putts, 6 of them were in the top-five, and all of them were in the top-13

    Of the last 20 champions, 12 have played the par 4’s in 8-under or better. 2017 Spieth played the par 4s in (-11), 2016 Knox played them in (-10), 2015 Bubba played the par 4s in (-12) while in 2014 Kevin Streelman played them in (-11).

    11 of the last 18 champions have been in the top-13 of the driving distance stat while only six winners have broken into the top-ten of the accuracy stat just once.

    Good luck to everyone this week.

    Cool that your attending Flip, I’m good either way if you want to take this week.

    Tim – Just let me know, I’ll take any week that’s open.

    I’ll have a EURO article out soon, in the next 3 hours likely. It might be abbreviated a little since I’ve been swamped with responsibilities

    The EURO contests are horrible as well. At first glance, it looks like a decent field so no clue why…

    I apologize for this overlook flip4flop. This damn contest (#beattheforum) has me apologizing to everyone. I keep overlooking and jumping on the next name that agrees. I now have a list of 13 PGA events ending at BMW Championship. 6 volunteers

    flip4flop >>> 28-Jun The National

    also a note to td33dzul, I am not sure if we are working together on this or that you give a rats ass what I think or care about playing along with the forum. I am not trying to limit anything you do, just next week..I would appreciate you not dumping 50 matches into the league to be filled. by all means enter contests, but please, leave a bit of the spotlight to the forum challengers.
