    I was looking at Thompson as well.

    Thompson is a guy who plays better than his numbers. Kind of a blind faith pick based on his ability to make something out of nothing.

    If you judged him on the raw stat data alone you’d be like

    The Poultergeist has logged in.

    Agreed. I also have him in plenty. Which is why Adam Schenk is currently my only -7,000 gopher.

    Last week the optimal lineup left thousands on the table. Maybe it happens again?

    RG has a $2500 Baseball freeroll on the new Superdraft site. I signed up in 2 minutes and played the contest without even depositing anything. Worth a try to see if I like it or not.

    risk free contest is 14.7K/19.8K
    Mayo rake free is 2845/3000
    can someone direct me a little to the (Finlandia? golf rake free)
    Happy Meal (3) Wells Fargo is now open…Get into the Cup Race

    and last but not least….Get rid of that Poulter ownership. He is not worthy and surrounded by noise that just doesnt matter. 😁

  • skankinmat

    Mid 7s feels pretty nice this week with Wallace, Lanto, Ortiz and Matt Jones…Wallace is my favorite of the bunch

    Playing with house money this week after last week’s wins. Probably playing more than I should, but I’m going to let it ride.

    After a Top 20 finish at the Valero, I am going on heavy on this guy.

    Winner: Fowler
    Fade: Zalatoris
    Sleeper: Zach Johnson

  • rbondo

    Having a hard time deciding being heavier on Poults or Matt Jones. Like them both a lot this week.

    It’s really awkward when your new man-crush (Ancer) runs in to your old man-crush (Rickie) alongside your fave from across the pond (Poulter).

    Am I the biggest donk on the planet for wanting all three of these guys in my main lineup?

    I have them in one of my cores. I guess we’re not supposed to reveal more than half our lineups. So I can’t tell you who might be Viktorious.

    Man, pricing on Yahoo is TOUGH. Much tougher than DK. I like Jason Day, but when he’s only $5 less that Rory McIlroy….

    thanks couldnt find Golflandia with finlandia. LOL dont know why thats the way i thought it.
    didnt this use to be a 3 entry?

  • BrianVT

    The Matt Wallace price/ownership ratio this week just screams as a chalk landmine. I need to take some stands in fading more often, and that looks like a good one for me this week. Make sure you guys go about 75% on him, though, because he’s probably the winner.

    Up to 56% on him lol

  • Getty33

    Winner : Webbster. He’s the touring pro here and has actually underachieved at Quail Hollow for the most part in tournament play. He’s the 4th best 1st round scorer on tour this year, so Thursday should have a lot to say whether or not he’ll be in the hunt.

    Fade: Keegan. He’s the main reason I min cashed all of my entries last week but at $8500 I’ll check out at this station before the train crashes.

    Sleeper : HV3. Another Quail Hollow member who hasn’t played worth a shit here (missed 3 of 5 cuts). The “due factor” either rears it’s ugly head or roars like a lion.

    Good Luck to each and all.

  • BrianVT

    HV3 will probably be a little chalky for his price-point also, but I’m onboard that one.

  • zeeshan2

    A little nugget I found:

    Excluding James Hahn, all other winners here dating back to 2014 (Max Homa, Jason Day, Justin Thomas, Rory McIlroy, JB Holmes) have ranked Top 15 in Driving Distance over their last 50 rounds entering the event. The Top 15 players in Driving Distance in this field entering this week are: Bryson DeChambeau, Wyndham Clark, Rory McIlroy, Will Gordon, Brandon Hagy, Joaquin Niemann, Luke List, Cameron Davis, Tyler McCumber, Jhonattan Vegas, Patrick Rodgers, Will Zalatoris, Jon Rahm, Joseph Bramlett, and Kristopher Ventura.

    Love HV3 this week. Fowler on the other hand is tough… he may have top 20’d but he was 13 strokes off the lead, for 70 dkpts. You’re banking that was him rounding into peak form based on one tournament if you roll with Rickie. If there were a time to try that strategy, however..this venue would probably be it. I have him at 12% own however.

    I am just being a nudge on this one but….
    this info is so screwed up in my mind I must say…not everyone played the same courses the same weeks in there last 50 rounds. Thats a huge difference this year because think about it, when was the last event Driving distance was a factor? its been all second shots, dig and doink courses. Another thing, you said the top 15 in Driving distance entering this event…doesnt that include more than the last 50 rounds.

    Its a nice nugget and I do not have any golfers that dont hit it a min of 300+ yards, but I do not except the hypothosis. Beware

    He’s a perfect example of how SG: APP and proximity stats are just a big f’ing conundrum in my mind. He shows on PGA site as 5th on Tour this season on SG:Approach, but this is his proximity rank based on distance to hole:
    225-250: 181st
    200-225: 209th
    175-200: 169th
    150-175: 77th
    125-150: 24th
    100-125: 64th
    75-100: 47th
    I get that these guys are so long they hit more wedges and short irons than mid and long irons, and that he’s been darn good with wedges and short irons. And I get that SG: APP can be more nuanced than only proximity. I still don’t get how that equates to 5th on Tour. In any event, he seems to be pretty bad on long approaches and I’m on team fade, too.

  • timusbr

    Winner: Xander…. (i hate picking winners because I am not good at it. I always steer myself to the high salary guy….because I always think of them as better golfers)

    Fade: JT, Rahm, POULTER

    Sleepers: That mid 7000 range has a bunch of golfers I like. I am using and I hope can Win or top 5. Not really what I consider a sleeper but……

    Deep dives: I like these guys too. hoping they make the cut with upside
    Hagy, Whaley, Ventura, Gordon

    Good point. Data golf has that “True Strokes Gained” metric that tries to incorporate some of what you are talking about (I think), but I’m not a paid member and haven’t messed around with it much. I think it is accessible for free if you are willing to search by player name rather than by ranks that include all players, but even then I’m not sure how their method works and whether it successfully accounts for course/event disparities (and even if it did, it might not give you distance but only total OTT: SG, so probably no help).

  • nicholasmarsh

    WINNER: DeChambeau (out on a limb)
    FADE: nicholasmarsh – (N/A single entry)
    SLEEPERS: Wise, Mitchell
