    Saw that, Del Lago Casino up here in Rochester, NY is working with DK in the event it happens here. They will be operating out of there as the sportsbook.

    I posted a h2h in the forum league. Come get my dollar.

    Well I’m banking on one lineup doing all my damage. Which one will it be? I’m going with none but would say it most likely has Webb Simpson on it. Anybody else like him in his range?

    I`m in, cool thing with the h2h in the forum is seeing the different lineups. Lots of things to look at and help my own process when constructing lineups. There are a lot of sharp people here and it’s good to keep an open mind and look back on construction even if you don’t cash.

    Damn I’m making my living down low like I didn’t want to here… I keep putting Kisner in my lineups now.

    If you are looking for narratives a great performance could get him on Ryder cup team…right in front of him are Bryson, X, Phil, Kuch. Right behind him is Finau. Fowler and Webb holding down last two spots but could fall out.

    Kisner seems to like the course. I’m playing a lot of Webb too. No Bryson for me (don’t think everything is right with him and has lots of distractions going on now), no Phil, and for a change no Kuch after last week! Finau’s only in about 30% of my lineups now.

    I am fading everyone on that list except for X-man

    its a tough game. keep your LU’s spread out and hope to get a winner. My experience is spread out the player pool and your spreading out the MC’s. I gamble, I try to take my 1 LU and make 20. Keeping a very tight LU. Unfortunately if you MC, your dead, and hope for a blip on the EKG to save some seed money.
    This might sound stupid but I believe in streaks. Baccarat is my game of choice in a casino. Can anyone explain streaks?? I cant. Can Hautalak explain his last 2 weeks? I doubt it. What about Ketter7, the poor guy was killing it on the west coast swing and now he doesn’t even want to comment here. Not winning for 4 weeks in a row…SUCKS, but its a streak. All streaks come to an end. The real game is money management against DK. They keep finding ways to separate you and your bankroll. Changing how you choose your LU, the process should stay the same. Changing your entry strategy is your battle with DK. I dont even recognize my losing strategy very quickly. DK can be a ball buster.

    Haha you definitely nailed it with me. I don’t recall doing anything differently when I was running hot, but I think there is just so much variance in golf that it is really hard to keep it up for too long. I believe in the super tight lineup construction theory though. With the payout structures on DK’s GPPs you really should be aiming for the win every time. A tight core really does give you the most shots at that win, but if you go with the tight core you have to be prepared for long stretches of terrible weeks. The win is so important because the top heavy payouts mean one or two big scores can pay for your entire year of losing entries. I have been absolutely ice cold since my early year run, but that run paid for most of this cold streak. That’s kind of just how it is when you play just the GPPs.

    Even though I know this is just how it goes, riding out a cold streak is tough. I definitely lost confidence in my picks and stopped saying anything in the forum since I didn’t want to just keep giving out crummy picks. I know the Happy Meal Cup is just for fun, but I actually felt pressure when I was in the lead that I needed to give good info, and it’s actually a little bit of a relief that I have been passed lately. Congrats to Klubba and Eric on overtaking me. I am just going to keep plugging away with my strategy and hope to get another streak going at some point.

    For the first time I was going to go 100% on a player this week. I think going massively overweight on guys in a small field is the way to go, but that guy was going to be Rose. I am looking at the WD as a positive though, because with back spasms he easily could have tried to tough it out and then withdrew midway through the first round killing all my lineups. Probably won’t end up shifting anyone else to 100%, but still going to go super small core this week.

    holy shit, I am going to think twice about giving bears some peanuts.
    LMAO, this was great Hunker

    Yeah that gif is crazy. There was a surprisingly good selection when I typed in “angry camel”. Could have went a lot of different ways I suppose…

    I don’t usually play cash but I grabbed a $2 #beatthetim H2H. I picked my “cashiest” lineup of 20 so we’ll see how that goes.

  • noddy

    Swapped out all my Rose. Now have more Woods, Rory, and Spieth than I wanted.

    @ketter7
    thanks for chiming in. I think, opinions and what you think are great for the forum. Let the reader decide. LOL we got some good fact check people so accuracy is……Opinions dont need facts, and some might find rational more intriguing.
    I am rooting for you to get back on top. several weeks remain.

  • noddy

    OK I’m ready…LFG!!!! I’ll show Cards how to MME :)

  • flip4flop

    Set lineups Tuesday, baby arrived Wednesday, happened to glance at Rotoworld saw Rose WD. Had 100% Rose, global swap to Speith and back to enjoying newborn time. Gonna be interesting to check Sunday.

    Congrats!!!!!!! I have 3. They are 24, 21, and 19. Seems like just yesterday they were newborns. Spend as much time as you can with them and put the cell phone down.

    These greens are Bent and his Bent vs Bermuda splits are terrible

    Interesting.

    I just spent a few hours building out some queries against 4 years of data to get the tour averages on four grass types and then another query to see the same averages by player.

    Wise doesn’t seem that diff between the two if comparing to his own bermuda vs his own bentgrass – but is worse than the tour average on bermuda.

    (Note that I am not comparing their scores, but the number of average putts on it.)

    I am going to make one optimal lineup based purely on the grass type and see how it does.

    LOL, now you need to choose 1 of those LU’s to play me in #beatthetim.

    Just the actual number of putts ? Or the Shots gained/lost Putting ?

    The latter is a much better statistic as a guy can miss 18 greens, chip it to 12” every time and make the putt. He’d have 18 putts which is insanely low where on a Shots Gained Putting metric, it would be only about +0.2 SGP so barely above an average round of +0.00

    My Gosh,I just looked at latest ownership project. Tiger from 20 to 29%. I have zero,so week might depend on how Mr. Woods performs.

  • Cbed11

    Spieth only has one top 5 in 17 WGC starts. The one did occur here, but I found that stat to be a little crazy.

    I think some call it PPgir some call it pph. The only thing I dont know is…If a guy holes out without the putter, does the hole count?

    I have 0 also, so I’ll be right there with you hoping he fails. That is way too high an own% for a guy who can’t keep his driver in play on a 7400 yd par 70
