    no i got fired like 3 years ago and havent really worked since but i blew all the money partying (same reason i got fired) and now im probably going to get a job anyway. I was hoping i could take this $3000 and win the million dollars and just live off interest the rest of my life. but so far i dont know if im gonna win. I do have a good lineup with 6/6 to make the cut chance in the top 1,000 with piercy on it. thats my num one dub right now

    Have literally wanted to throw up for the past 2-3 hours….

    A few weeks ago i had the Nuts lineup for NBA playoff game and one of the contests i entered won me a ticket to the $20 US Open. Well last weekend i entered a $3 golf thing for practice… somehow won another $20 golf ticket… so now ive got two golf tickets and i cant name 5 golfers in the world.

    So about a week ago i made 150 lineups in the $0.25 minimax just to practice making lineups so id know what the heck i was doing with the tickets.

    Got bit with the bug making lineups so i decided to start looking into it a little more like who’s good at driving accuracy and putting and stuff. I figured it out pretty quick, there’s not really a lot to think about in golf you just pick the names that make you think “If I randomly turned the station to a channel showing golf on tv would that be a name i could see being on that little leaderboard at the bottom right.” If it sounds like it could be then you pick him. If it sounds like a golfer that wouldn’t have his name there you jsut dont pick him. Dont overthink it. Either he’s got the name you could see or he doesn’t.

    Threw 150 lineups in the main event…

    Well the 150 lineups i carefully put together in the million dollar event are only worth like $1,500… lost half my freaking money because the payout structure is insanely top heavy. I didnt realize it was so bad when i threw my life savings in it.

    Well the $0.25 one where i didnt even know the players name I had #1 and #2 entry overall out of 47,000. Both of which were higher scores than the $1 million leader for a good bit of that time.

    I mean i know it’s freaking early… but barf. I cant even look. This isnt fun to follow right now. I’m turning over a $750 profit on $37 and losing $1,500 on $3,000. So gross lol. Like I know it’s not going to hold up. And i dont even think i want it to hold up. Is that crazy? Like I dont want to win this $500 and play the what if game the rest of my life. Just take my $500. I guess ill have to end up getting a job. Awful.

    So you know nothing about golf and you’re bitching bc you’re losing? Gimme a break

    I guess he thought we were gonna let him win

    DJ should give a shoutout to the TV crew for saving him 3+ strokes

  • fanturds

    i wasn’t able to watch all day. I thought I was absolutely cooked with 53 points…but maybe not.

    enjoy my 9 dollars to the 444 though.

    The Millionaire contest really does suck. I mean if you don’t finish in the top 40 is it worth it? I have a LU which is in 300th place for a measly 150 bucks. Why can’t they make first prize like 700,000, and filter down the other 300K so if you come in like 500th out of 205K people you feel like you won something? Anyways I guess I need Bryson to have a round and get me up into the top 40.

    Man, what a day of golf with the carnage! Cash lineup is ok but gpp is not doing so good, seriously just need to stick to cash..lol. 15th in the pressure putt satty and feeling pretty good, just need Day to do something besides a mc. GL to all tomorrow, cheers!

  • Hyak420

    Y’all are cracking me up with the ED/Jaeger banter, good stuff!

    Wow! Great minds think alike lol

    Wonder how they split a satty ticket

    You pick three and I pick three?

    :)

    They ain’t going to be splitting it because I am going to win it!

  • titanhawks

    Guess I’ll play the same LU in the Rd2 as I did in the Rd1 since it cashed and playing the am/pm main slate anyhow

    Be interesting to see how that works out and/if the salary changes will allow me to do it

    Also raise your hand if you’re in the negative club on Yahoo. I have 3/10 in negatives. Only 1 lineup cashing there. With their pricing that’s where you need 150 lineups!

    I mainly used DJ/Tiger LUs (which mostly suck because Tiger + I used great plays like Kaymer, Rory, and Keegan) but decided to do a couple without either for the contrarian play… didn’t go well.

    Rahm/Bradley/Scott/Casey/Rory/Kaymer: -49.2 points. Funniest thing is that this LU is only 2nd to last and not even DFL.

    I can only play the Yahoo Cup since I’m in Missouri but I have 62.1 points and am 2502 out of 20,883

    I cannot play the same Rd 1 Showdown LU for Rd 2 as it is $600 over after the salary changes

    I flipped Cantlay for ZJ but could use Harman also

    I played Stenson this week and am super pumped he didn’t pull an “Oakmont” today. There is always tomorrow though so need to keep them fingers crossed!

    Hell, I’ll give them a shout out, they’re the reason why I have paper winning today

    As everyone has mentioned, a lot of golf left to play and nothing is guaranteed

    Winds look to be 5-10 all day tomorrow, should see some better scoring. Cream should rise to the top.
