    Having surgery in December. I think this is his last tourney and it’s guarantee money if he ‘Shows up”

    He is planning to play the rest of the Race to Dubai tournaments on the European Tour. He was also scheduled to play in Tiger Wood’s Hero World Challenge but he was not in the published field that came out a couple of days ago.

    Man weather forecast for 2nd round looks terrible. Was so looking forward to watching tonight. Hope it doesn’t get too bad where they can’t play. Looks bad for the next 3 days actually.

    Nice, I did see that! Do you or anyone knows if Golf Coverage will ever improve? Even the big tournaments it’s just kinda sketchy how they go about it.

    Every sport starts when the game starts and ends when it ends. Golf will just cover portions of the event.

    It might come down to logistics (I am not expert in PGA broadcasting setups). A golf course is anywhere between 6,800 and 7,500+ yards. I will guess that it takes at least twice that length in cabling (video and audio). The dynamics of a golf course is different fro other sports. The course will get soaked over night. You have mowers rolling around the course as well. The question to me is, do they have to breakdown and setup for each round for each event? If so then lighting comes into play. Its hard to run cable at 3am with no light. Sure you could get lights for it, but then you are employing more people.

    I went to the Boise Open this year. Granted its only a Web.com event and they have there B team going. I was sort of hungover from the night before so I got there around 10am. Golfers had already tee off way earlier. They were still busting out mics when I was there.

    Again I’m not a PGA media employee, but if its a matter of breaking down and setting back up between rounds I can see why they don’t broadcast from the start.

    The more frustrating thing to me is not being able to watch the golfers you want. You are at the mercy of who they choose to show.

    I second this. Shot tracker is all i really need lol. Cant wait till they are back in the US and shot tracker is back.

  • ninerzfan8

    Shot tracker is going strong for the Sanderson Farms this week. Don’t know why they couldn’t throw a small contest out for that one

  • AB99

    Shot tracker is very dependant on tournament volunteers and being able to train them on the devices ahead of time. Me thinks getting all the crap there and training people in a land like china (different language, different economic and political issues) might make the PGA just say it aint worth it to set up for a bunch of DFS junkies

    That or multitournament line up options. That would leave you with soo many different ways to structure your lineups. I think that’s the way fanduel is going to go once they roll out golf.

    As far as I know, it’s more about broadcasting rights and keeping a sense of exclusivity than it is about logistics. PGA TOUR owns the right to their own tournament obviously. Right for broadcasting are then sold to Golf Channel (NBC) and CBS based on very specific time frames. Essentially the PGA TOUR only allows certain broadcast times for tournaments (Ex: 3-6). PGA TOUR would rather have people attend the event than watch it on TV (obviously not everyone is going to travel to and fro, but it makes it so if you want to see it all, you have to be there.)

    The reason tournaments like the British Open and US Open, etc. have broader covererage is they are not ran by the PGA Tour. British R&A, USGA, what have you, who get to make their own rules.

    This is correct and for those of you that just started watching golf the last couple years for dfs consider yourself lucky.

    I remember how exciting it was as a kid waiting for the masters to come on to see how things were going and who was winning. We got the back 9 on Saturday and Sunday and that was it. The open I remember waking up early but I think it was weekends only too. The US Open we would get a 2 hour block on weekday afternoons on NBC and that was huge (and it pissed my mom off because it interrupted soap operas). Other tourneys was Saturday and Sunday only and I can’t remember them being that big of a deal.

    fuck me. Had two lineups over 200 and one at 190 after first round. My best lineup now is 273. Followed by 245. That has to be the worst 1st to 2nd day I’ve ever had.

  • ninerzfan8

    Got a couple nice teams over 300, if some combination of mcilroy, Thomas, leishman, and Kaymer can put together a couple low rounds this could be a good week

    @zshatz11 said...

    I feel like every time a player misses the pro-am he plays well. I think you have to keep him in your lineups just based on his course history. I’m not playing cash but that might be the place to pivot off of him.

    He also cracked a joke on Twitter and has stated he wants to win the Race to Dubai to salvage his “lost season.” I don’t think he will withdrawal.

    Playing Monday morning quarterback… it looks like we should have faded. He looks sick out there. His swing speed is down, he can’t hit a fairway… sigh

  • Brian6035

    I have a few lineups close to 300 for some reason 2 of them include mats whos putter looks even worse than it typically does. Really need mats to start draining some putts.

    6 lineups over 300. 3 over 328 (kisner/knox)

  • Brian6035

    I threw some bullshit line up into that $10 freeroll DK runs without using thr lineup in any other tourney.. hend, kisner, DJ, aphibarnrat, grace.. of course I have 350 points.
