We have to start off with huge congrats to Louis Oosthuizen for his phenomenal domination of the field at last week’s British Open. This guy has nerves of steel, and actually looked more confident as he made his way to the finishing hole. It was truly a wonderful spectacle to witness.
I wish I had witnessed me placing a bet on him on Wednesday, as he was an amazing 200:1 odds of victory.
We also just missed a top five with Sean O’ Hair last week. Had he not double bogeyed the 14th, we would have cashed a great T6 ticket paying out 22.5:1 odds.
Okay, now we move north to Canada for the RBS Canadian Open. The favorites this week are all just under 20:1 odds and are great selections. O’Hair, Casey, Donald, and Goosen are all right around that 16:1 mark and are very worthy of their rankings.
In Yahoo fantasy, I now have a total of 3996 points on the year. I gained three points in my FOHM group, now in the 73rd percentile. Overall, I stepped up two points into the 79th percentile.
I am finally getting within striking distance of the Yahoo experts. I am leading Arkush by 115 points. I trail Planer by nine points, Vara by 30 points, and Romig by 179 points.
Look out boys, I’m coming to get ya!
Here is who I like this week for my lineup:
Start Luke Donald
Sit Charlie Wi
Start Sean O’ Hair and Retief Goosen
Sit Alex Cejka and Kevin Na
Start Matt Kuchar
Sit Paul Casey
Here are my honorable mentions for the week: Campbell 40:1, Na 66:1, and Byrd 66:1
Let’s crack open this week’s six pack.
