    Stenson and Casey are Top-10 in SG in NC events since 2014 and both under 8K.

  • Kp24

    Stenson playing in the Wednesday charity 2v2 as well. At least you get a little insight to how he looks with a club in his hand

  • sneaksox

    Phil is $6,600…no cut…I’m all in.

    Didn’t Fleetwood play in that thing last Wednesday and do well? Or am I misremembering?

  • Rickytango13

    You’re correct noddy

    But hopefully this course doesn’t eat like 130 water balls per round.

    I don’t know. My guess is he is pretty expensive given that he has won since the comeback. Most people also know his course history. Might be hard to pick him over a more elite player.

    I pay close attention to this tournament each year because I have been volunteering as a marshal on the 16th hole for the last decade. There are about 20 marshals on the hole for most years (we hold the Hush Ya’ll signs), but this year they only needed eight and I got an email telling me a few weeks back that they won’t be needing my services.

    That sucks …..How did you get that Job?

    @JStocksSmith

    Who the Heck is R. Paratore???

  • FredPupples

    I lived about 10 miles from the course in Memphis (now live a few hours away in Mississippi), and I had a friend who asked me if I wanted to volunteer ten years ago. You can also just email your local tournament (if you live near one and they will get you started). The volunteer program at most PGA tournaments, I believe, is like the one in Memphis. It is basically a giant day camp for retired folks who like golf. I am in my early 40s and I am much younger than the average volunteer. There are a couple thousand volunteers for each tournament who work shifts throughout the day as marshals, shotlink workers, range workers, shuttle drivers etc. They feed us each day and you get a free hat and polo shirt. New volunteers come each year, and you get a pin after every five years of service. One of the reasons I was not picked this year is they said chose the few they needed out of seniority and some have been doing it for more than three decades. As someone who loves golf, I look forward to it each year, especially now that Memphis is a World Golf Championship.

    Just placed high or won the last Euro event (Paratore) was watching Golf Channel and of course he was playing the Euro Event…looked good.

  • FredPupples

    The fan in me wants to play Mickelson.
    He loves this course and has great course history. He seems cheap too.
    But, my DFS instincts tell me to stay away from the old man.

  • Felixxberg

    Please Snedeker just WD before I lock you in!

    not sure if this is behind a paywall but worth checking out

    MODS feel free to delete post if it is.

    GoogleDoc for FedExStJude

    Thanks Johnnyjakes,

    I slipped last years google doc into my info and updated the 2019 finish.
    but I have some question as to what course info should be used.

    All this data is for TPC Southwind. 2019 and 2020 are WGC events and prior is St Jude Classic on this same course.
    As far as historic data on PGA site, I have no idea. I cant find TPC Southwind data in any of my recent years sprreadsheet. IDK why. it raises questions (i generally make notes year to year to give me a refresh on last year but cant find the docs).

  • XxHeisenbergxX

    So is this a trap – Sunjae 7,500.00??? I mean you have to almost lock and load at that price…either that or some one knows there is something seriously wrong with him..because no matter how bad he has played after the break that is a massive drop…there has to be more to this story right? DJ should be 6300.00 this week!

    I think water is a main defense of this course

  • jki7p6

    Watching the par 3s at this course gives me anxiety.

  • ifthethunder

    Ian Poulter has only missed 2 cuts in his last 13. And I managed to have a bunch for both of those.

    At least he can’t miss the cut this week. But not sure I can trust, even at 7,400.

    Yeah you know it’s a weird week when Cam Smith again enters your player pool. Am I dead day 1, 2, or later? lol

    Oh boy. Time to go random.

  • voodooman

    @hautalak said...

    Nice! Could be gold with how I’ve been doing. At least a MC can’t bite me this time…

    The only difference is this week we miss out on 6/6 because of WDs instead of the Cut.

    Lol
