    19/150 6/6
    57/150 5/6

    More than half my lineups got 5 or 6 and I’m getting absolutely slaughtered right now. My cash game lineup is 141st /150 🤮🤮🤮

    Even more annoying: 16/20 6/6 tiers lineups and not cashing a single dime.

    Time to go low this weekend.

    How many of the golfers currently in the top 15 (-8 or better) will finish in the top 15?

    I say 4 (Xander, Burns, Billy Ho, and Ortiz)

    You have a lot of faith in Billy Ho. I think Scottie is back to stay now.

    Agree that Billy will probably fade over the weekend (not to pull against Noddy). Scottie and Xander will be there at the end although I need both of them to get a bad case of the shanks

    1/10 for 6/6, would have been better if the cut was -2. Of course that 6/6 is no where close to cashing

  • Shaver933

    My semi-random $200 SE is alive at 6/6 in 4th in the Driver.

    X -12
    Palmer -4
    Horschel -8
    Kuchar -6
    ZJ -4
    Stricker -11

    Looking forever to the weekend!

    Good luck to you and everyone. I will keep everyone posted on how bad my golfers do.

    Haven’t seen Dewoc in awhile but noticed he signed in yesterday. But MTDurham has not logged in for almost a year? Banned? Covided?

  • synth

    got 5/6 this week, better than my 4/6 last week

    Another disappointing week of cut sweats…had one really promising lineup going into today, but couldn’t hang on:

    [Bradley/Scheffler/Koepka/McIlroy] – [Champ/Frittelli] MC

    Best lineup going into the weekend:

    [Schauffele/Spieth/Conners/Henley/Homa/An], seems ok, but too many guys around -4 so hard to expect them all to make a move

    On to Pebble Beach I guess – rough start to 2021 dfs golf season – down about $1k in entry fees through about 4 weeks

    I don’t miss the lengthy posts from MTDurham, but the guy sometimes provided some useful information.

    Come back Dewoc

  • lfn1992

    Look for huge swings this weekend as -3 is T55 and -6 is nearly T20. So much room to rise and drop in there.

    Where is Dunzor?

    Pay site?

    Yeah, but it will pay for itself in a couple tournaments. Pat Mayo has a discount code, too.

  • lfn1992

    Thank you, Sergio, for making me cover this weekend’s fees in EURO

    My best lineup in the big 50 cent contest is in 692nd place:

    Xander -12
    Billy Ho -8
    Ortiz -8
    Glover -7
    Henley -4
    Norlander -3

    DO NOT play any of these golfers in SD tomorrow.
    DO NOT play any of these golfers in Weekend golf.
    DO NOT play any of these golfers in SD Sunday.

    My golfers ALWAYS suck on the weekends. It NEVER fails. You have been WARNED!!!!!!

    Playing Billy Ho this weekend

    Good Saturday morning & YAY GOLF!

    So much fun watching golf with sounds of a gallery! Seems we have gotten used to the quiet and restrictions, my how I have missed the buzz.

    19 unique entries, went 2/19 6/6 and 9/19 5/6, as others have pointed out, below the cash line with a lot of those.

    hoping for another break even tournament, and I’m ok with that

    Good Luck to everyone with a weekend sweat!

    I took a break last year after getting killed and started playing again last couple of weeks. Broke even 2 weeks in a row and 22% 6/6 this week so feeling better. My model got complicated and had horrible results. I simplified it and been focusing more on SG OTT, APP, ARG … quick question and I know has been discussed before but it has been awhile …I was looking at Datagolf and they have a “True SG” that basically says it is like a field adjusted stat. Sounds like it converts it from a particular tournament to the average pga player. So could be helpful adjusting for a player playing a bunch of weak or tough fields I think. Does anyone use this metric as opposed to raw SG or have any thoughts on it? It had me interested looking at it as possibly using instead of raw SG.

    GL Everyone and hope you fellas are doing well and raking in the monies.

  • Penguin3200

    Got 5/6 thru with my single bullet line up this week. Thought Laird would make the weekend. Alas, hopefully Hubbard goes low.

    I actually just finished updating my database this past week with an adjustment to SG. For each historical season, I found the finishing OWGR of every player, and then went back to each tournament within each season and looked up all of the OWGRs that played that tournament, found the average “strength” of field based on all of those, and then made a separate table that looked at all players/years and determined their individual SOF rating based on all of the tournaments they played that year. Then I normalized all of those numbers into a figure that I could apply to all of the SG stats. So, for instance in 2020, someone like Patrick Cantlay has a high SOF rating based on the tournaments he was in and the competition in them, and someone like Kramer Hickok was much lower because he probably played a lot of different/“weaker” tournaments. So, their SG stats get adjusted accordingly.

    I think datagolf does something similar, but they probably have a large enough database to adjust each tournament based on the OWGRs at that point in time, whereas I just took the final OWGR for the year. I figure mine at least gets to a more realistic value than using the raw SG and that’s a good enough adjustment for my purpose.

    I’m 1 for 20. Would have had a few more if Harris English hadn’t turned out to be a dud this week.

    Also that lineup isn’t great. It’s a Justin Thomas lineup, not Xander Schauffele (whom I had more of).

    But all it takes is one, right!

    Prayers for Rahm’s dog. He almost broke his wedge over his knee on the 1st hole.
