Haha sounds good! I didn’t really play around a lot with pricing, but if you like Scott a lot or something could go that route.

Should also note not playing Rory right now is always a risk. But when the price is so high, the return has to be basically a win.

What's a fade?

When he sets up super well for the course, but then everyone is on him. So you pivot to another caliber player who won’t be as highly owned. It’s applied to lots of sports, but really works well in golf because finding a golfers good week is harder than playing the odds of them being ok to bad. Fading Morikawa if he sucks will pay off since he will be super popular.

Yeah, $700k is just too much for one player. I don't see him winning it in consecutive years.

I havent done DK in awhile, but they added Tier scoring and also have a Milly Maker. So, $150 donated to some people Ive never met. Gotta make my lineups tonight.

Good start so far. I've had 5 players tee off, and all of them are -3 or -4 already.

Screw you, Laley, your team f***ed me. Not a single one of them is going to finish the tournament!

Very much enjoyed that battle. Props to Peyton’s iron play from 150-190 and Brady some great shots including the shot of the day.

Trash talk so good

I caught the first six holes while visiting my mom and was surprised at how entertaining it was because I'm not a big fan of golf. I guess the concept of actually catching live sports that wasn't auto racing or UFC that had big names competing played a role. And the trash talk and banter was fun. And at least for those first six holes, I was living on the sour grapes joy of watching Brady failing hard. The one shot that went way right cracked me up, especially when someone said it was on the fairway...of 7.

Loved when Barkley when “hey tom I’ll donate $50k if you hit this on the green.” Bad shot. Barkley: “I could have said $50k if you hit it on this planet!”

Travelers Championship is real....I just assumed I was watching 2018 or something when I flipped over to CBS


DJ shot 61 the other day and he’s going to win but Mackenzie Hughes has made the 2 best putts I’ve ever seen to close out a tournament and went from 7th to 3rd.....made a putt with a 20 ft break on 17 and rammed in a 55 footer with putter from off green on 18. Incredible shots

That Todd guy who is a career choke artist lost about $800 grand today on the back nine.

Illinois FINALLY got online betting last week. Hit DJ at 28-1 and those Hughes putts fucked me out of an amazing payday of Kizzire and Stallings T-5 bets (knocked them both to T-6). Did get an E/W on Bryson. 

All-in-all, great first week of bets. About 15 $1-$5 losers, 1 big hit and 1 E/W. Up $237. I’m sure it just means I’ll blow it all next week on Ben An and watch him 3-jack from 14’ to miss the cut.

Bryson hitting 367 yard drives and dropping wedges to 4 feet.  Gonna be hard to beat.


If he stops wearing that stupid hat...he might make something of himself

Bryson is breaking the sport, at the moment. Wonder if anyone follows suit? Also will be interesting to see if his accuracy holds. 375 yard drives into rough works just fine in the run of the mill tournament. But the invitationals and majors (Masters aside) you better not be hitting out of the rough consist

Anything about the Jamie Farr? That was going to be the first LPGA event with fans, also in Ohio.
