I wish I was riding a wager on Tim Clark last week. He was an astonishing 100:1, and guess what?
He won the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass last week!
What a terrific Sunday performance we had on display last week.
Lee Westwood is now a concern to me.
Can this guy ever FINISH an event? It always seems to be the major events like this that this guy comes out on fire, leads for three rounds, and then collapses come Sunday.
I guess the good news for us in the gambling circuit was my pick of good ‘ol BVP last week. He was 80:1 to win it all, but even though he came up short, he still secured us a decent pay day by placing in the top five (fourth to be exact), cashing us a very respectable 20:1 ticket.
We are off to the 88-year-old Valero Texas Open this week.
This will mark the first year it will be played at the Greg Norman-designed, Sergio Garcia-influenced AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio. The 15-year run at La Canterra has come to an end.
This track will reward good ball strikers and guys who can hit it far. Good wind players will also have some success here as well.
Last week, I pretty much maintained my status quo in Yahoo Fantasy, yet slipped behind the experts a little further. I now have a total of 2,518 points on the year.
I now trail ALL of the Yahoo experts. Planer has me by 12, Arkush has me by 65, Vara’s got me by 107, and the all-star super golf guru, Matt Romig, is edging me out by 312 points.
I dropped to the 62nd percentile in FOHM, and overall, I am now two points lower into the 71st percentile.
Here is my start ‘em and sit ‘em picks for this week in Yahoo Fantasy Golf:
START Ernie Els
SIT Zach Johnson
START JB Holmes and Kevin Stadler
SIT Bo Van Pelt and Chad Campbell
START Bob Estes
SIT Chris Stroud
I have two honorable mentions this week who almost made the six-pack: Justin Leonard, 25:1, and David Duval, 125:1.
Let’s get it on!
