    That said, if Bryson suddenly shows up with braces within the next year (as in like his teeth), then that is a sure sign he is on drugs and HGH.

  • mr_papageorgio

    Winner: Cantlay by 1 over Woodland. Mats finishes T5
    Fade: Rahm, Hovland
    Sleeper: Homa and…gulp…KSDT

    Edit: changed my mind on Mats so updating my picks.

    I urge you to at least just take a quick peak at his CH.

    I won’t play him next week for sure :)

    I have a good background in drugs if you have questions (not joking).

    While that level of weight gain does make one perk up, Bryson is extraordinarily unlikely to be on steroids – he has gained a considerable amount of fat in the short period of time which is absolutely not an indicator of steroid or HGH use. The fat and water weight is an indicator of eating a lot of carbs.

    At 8lbs per gallon water is the fastest way to gain weight. Could be intracellular at the muscle level which then gives an internal leverage advantage for increased strength – this would be handy in golf since there is no weight disadvantage (vs like running where you are now working harder). It is extremely unlikely to have protein synthesis build that much new muscle over that period of time unless it was basically someone coming out of being bedridden but was previously built. So he mostly has modified his diet to hold more water. He even mentioned his weight swings, which is 100pct water movement.

    Even if he were on All Of The Drugs – that would do nothing to help the fact of how straight he is hitting it.
    It would be far more likely to see a surge in strength and ruin all of his muscle memory.

    As for HGH in golf, the only use would be to recovery from wrist/knee injuries faster for those 40+.

    Under this scenario he is probably eating a bunch of carbs like you said and water. If he is taking something that could enhance that its likely creatine which will bulk you up and get you stronger and is not illegal. Creatine also will hold water and puff out the muscles.

    No kidding. I thought my 200/week was a good amount.

    200 is a goodly amount.

    I struggle to keep it at $100 and have been known to jump on my hunch weeks to try and find greater glory.

    When its all said and done. Showdown and weekend is like Monday Night Football…..Bet bigger and take away a win or push on the week.

    Absolutely.
    Carbs get processed to glucose and then to glycogen – glycogen storage then results in it carrying 4g of water for every gram of water.
    Glycogen is stored in the muscles but has a ceiling – but can also be stored in fat which essentially has no ceiling other the rate at which you can consume calories (the liver stores it, but maxes out in humans at around 50g).
    He has made a big deal about protein shakes but the ones he is drinking out of the box on the course are not particularly high in protein vs carbs and are not necessarily even a great source of fully digestible protein. (vs eggs, which are nearly perfect in that sense)

    So carbs, sodium, and creatine (although still not necessary) could bring on rapid weight gain and not hinder fat gain with it (usually expect 1-3 lbs of fat for every lb of muscle mass gained unless an absolute beginner to fitness).

    If we start seeing him lean out but retain mass, and particularly if he starts getting visibly winded on the course – then I would suspect tren acetate use – that would allow for a short enough half life to work around likely drug testing (if they even do that for non narcotics).
    His current water weight gain, if steroids, would be test and deca and dbol (or eq if injected) – but nothing about how he looks reads as that, plus it would last in the system well after use and show up in tests – he would have to be profoundly stupid to use that if testing is real.

    Now if you want to start pointing fingers at drug use – watch the show Titan Games.

    Why is Armour never coming up with his recent play? Price is good, he’s on fire. I haven’t heard jack

    You haven’t heard jack!!!

    This forum has been a great place to discuss golf and some people (like me) love to tell you who they pick before the contest starts. Some people are closed mouth. Since the restart…..I think some of our top prognosticators are holding back on giving away there “gems”. They can easily talk about the top salariers and toss out a longshot but the DFS’r in them dont want the moderate priced low owned guy they put in thier core to be public to all the “newbies” contributing.

    You might not have noticed but Today DFS Golf is a Marquis event, It draws a bunch more dead money and the sharks are circling.

    @noddy said...

    This 100%. So frustrating.

    I am liking my results in SD over the last 4 weeks. I have won money in 4 showdowns. I was hovering on the bubble of the majority of the rest of the SD’s I have played.

    Not bad considering I would either get a great LU or be close to dead last as a rule.

    A few weeks ago, I gave you my recipe for SD, Its worked for me.

    @depalma, Dude, I believe what you said above but I cant help but think over the past weeks that you have been profitable or I just buy into the chatter.

  • BrianVT

    I forgot to mention Steve Stricker in the sub $6500. Again, I don’t need to dip down there this week, mainly because I’m only doing about 20 lineups this week, but he is one I’d be throwing in if doing 150.

    @monarch said...

    Anyone think CT Pan can do anything? I need a cheapie and he looks the best to me of the deep punts.

    check to see who his caddie is!!!!
    extra bump if its his wife.

    Yep and I’m afraid I have too much but it’s pretty gross down there…

    Just threw my dollar into the Euro HM. Still need many more for it to fill and advertised lock is midnight CT tonight.

    @FredPupples said...

    I wonder how they make the projections of ownership.
    Unless they have access to our lineups, they really shouldn’t know. Does anyone know?

    as a topic….. a forum favorite that happens 1-2 times a year. I think we already had it for this year.

    I’m overweight on the Duff man this week

    I got me some…..Add a good sprinkle of JB too.

    All hail the journeymen PGA golfers. You all worry about the young guns and who to play and I’ll take me some of the “wiley” old dudes.
