Practice round is the way to go.  Way more interaction between players and crowd, you can take pictures, course not as packed, etc.  Plus if it’s an exciting tournament, you want to be able to watch that on tv.


Have a great time.  It’s quite a place.


I dunno about all that. Pictures and maybe crowds ok, but I’m taking tournament all day every day over guys hitting shots without consequence or meaning.

I did Saturday 2019 after hitting the lottery. The charge of the golfers on the back 9 was wild. One of coolest things I’ve been a part of was the (much talked about) roar from across the course and watching the leaderboard operator post a  score.

no doubt. i am running into an issue where the person who owned my house was also entered into the lottery and i'm unable to sign up. I need to work through that and get it figured out this year. i have tried for 12 years now and so far no dice. I'm curious if you only got the chance for the tuesday or if you have tickets for the rest of the week.

You only get selected for a single day. I entered the lottery for all days.

very cool. one of my larger vendors has 2 houses rented and like 12 tickets to all days. I requested approval to go from my boss, but was denied. come to find out he goes every single year with another vendor (who i don't use, but other folks in my group do). that kinda stinks.

Bhatia with the win this weekend but McCarthy birdied 8 or last 9 holes and Bhatia had to make a 12 footer to send it to extras…in doing so did a fist pump and partially dislocated his shoulder???

With the bad shoulder he smoked a drive, hit a 220 yard lay up….He had 90 yards remain all the while McCarthy shat himself and dropped a 77 yard shot in the water….at that point Bhatia asked an official, on csmera “where can I go to get my shoulder wrapped” ???? Lol hit the 90 yard chip and you win. So he left and got his shoulder wrapped for a 1/3 swing shot after taking 2 full swings. 

He also makes Will Zalatoris look bulky

Hit Bhatia this weekend at +6500. Unfortunately it was .15u wager only. Oh well, I’ll take a win! First of the season.

Scottie (obvi). Xander too. I'd say those are the guys.

Rahm, Hideki, Fitz too.

Would love to see Finau win. Morikawa has been trash lately (sorry Laley).

JT and Spieth maybe??? 


I like the prices I got Koepka (+2100), Deki (+2700), Wyndham (+3200), and Henley (+11000) at

Henley is getting a lot of love too. Was at +11000 last week now closer to +6000.

In a 6-tier pool I went with (thus far):


Spieth (probably first time I've ever picked him)

Finau

Morikawa (perhaps it's time for the turnaround)

Conners

English (still debating)

Poston


May make some  tweaks .??

Xander and Hideki….pshhhh.

I did jump in live at +2000 with Homa yesterday. Would be awesome if he can get to 5 or 6 under as they wrap up R1.


Does Bryson keep this up all weekend? Only thing keeping Scottie from winning could be the birth of a child.  He’s a freak

I caught the evening hours…..brutal winds and tough course and big timers just crashed. Justin Thomas +7 on last 4 holes to miss cut by 1

A few others fell off huge and doubled last hole to go +6, but cut actually dropped to that.

Hovland burned down too.

I think this course is too difficult.

Whoever comes out on top will have definitely earned it
