Congrats go out to Jason Bohn on his wire to wire crushing at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans last week.
Didn’t see that one coming.
Seems like that’s the trend this year for some reason. It’s funny too, because last week when perusing my spreadsheet I seemed to remember Bohn contending in some tourney last year, and at that point I realized I hadn’t been tracking him. With that said, I quickly added him to the spreadsheet.
Upon seeing three missed cuts on the year and nothing spectacular in his last five finishes, I figured, “We’ll keep an eye on him for later…”
Well folks, Bottom Line Jay does not live in the past and neither should you. This week we have one of the most challenging courses on the tour, Quail Hollow in Charlotte, North Carolina.
This course is amongst one of the most beloved by the players on tour. The premium at this event clearly lays with the guys that can drive the golf ball far and straight. That means our key stat to follow this week is Total Driving, which combines the best of both, distance and accuracy.
Tiger will be playing this week and of course that makes him the favorite. He is three-to-one on most books right now, and that is really good value for him. I love Tiger to win this week, and will be hedging all wagers with a larger bet on Tiger, and possibly a secondary hedge with the red hot Masters champ Phil Mickelson at ten-to-one. This tourney has only been around since 2003 and already Tiger, Jim and Vijay have captured the trophy. What up Phil?
Okay a disaster has occurred in Yahoo fantasy, again. I swear that I pressed the submit button last week, yet in reality, I did not. That translated to me having only one freaking golfer in the event all week! Thanks for at least making the cut KJ Choi. Here’s how the damage looks.
I now have 2326 points on the season and miraculously am still besting one Yahoo expert, Eric Planer by 24 points. I now trail Michael Arkush (really???) by 40 points. I am also behind Greg Vara by 95 points. I am questioning if I can ever catch up to the elusive killer Matt Romig, who is trouncing me by an almost insurmountable 242 points! I slipped nine points in TFOHM down to the 64th percentile and overall I dropped a devastating seven points to arrive in the uncharted 72nd percentile.
I am going to kill it in Yahoo this week, so watch for a great rebound. Here is my lineup:
Start Tiger Woods
Sit Phil Mickelson
Start Jim Furyk
Sit Adam Scott
Start JP Hayes
Sit DJ Trahan
A few honorable mentions before we hit the six pack are Camilo Villegas 35:1, Nick Watney 40:1, Matt Kuchar 50:1, Ryan Moore 80:1, Vijay “Brokeback” Singh 100:1, and Bo Van Pelt 100:1
