Congrats go out to Zach Johnson (50:1) for his impressive come from behind victory to outlast both Brian Davis and Bryce Molder at last week’s Crowne Plaza Championship.
My buddies over at www.hardcoresportsradio.com were impressive last week. Mr. Robert Pizzola Jr. needs to be commended on his amazing picks of THREE top five finishes! That netted him almost 41 units! He had Verplank, Overton, and Crane in his six pack. Cam Stewart also had Crane and Overton to net almost 25 units.
This week we are off to Muirfield Village out in Ohio. This is the sixth most difficult track on the PGA Tour and we have an amazing field this week. Since Tiger is playing, gambling values are high. I was stunned to see Tiger at 6:1 odds. I shouldn’t really be that, “stunned” but it’s just so strange to see such a big number beside his name. The way he is playing now, compounded by this injury that was all the rage two weeks ago, yet now has hardly been mentioned, makes for interesting fodder.
I found a great prop bet on www.bodog.com this week. Will Tiger Woods be in the top ten? Yes is -140 No is +110. I am all over selecting, “No” at +110. Tiger is not going to be near the top ten this week, even though he had been fantastic at this track over the years. He’s got too much crap going on in his life right now.
Okay, let’s go to Yahoo fantasy.
I am now in with 2923 points and am getting back on track. I am in the 66th percentile in FOHM and am in the 73rd overall. I am finally getting close to the experts again. I trail Planer by 17 points, Vara by 62 points, Arkush (really?) by 80 points, and am still behind the master Matt Romig by 197 points.
Here’s my lineup for this week:
Start Kenny Perry
Sit Ernie Els
Start KJ Choi and Dustin Johnson
Sit Robert Allenby and Bo Van Pelt
Start Matt Kuchar
Sit Mike Weir
Before we hit the six pack, I have a TON of honorable mentions this week: Choi 25:1, Ogilvy 28:1, Watney 40:1, Allenby 40:1, Cink 40:1, D. Johnson 40:1, Jacobsen 66:1, Petterson 80:1, Haas, 80:1, and Weir 80:1.
