Another week on a classic course, another week where experience should help pay your rent.
Or have you shake out the couch cushions to cover it.
Or as I say, sleep FAST…

DraftKings has plenty of ways to join the action weekly in a salary-cap-format game. Gamers pick six players on a budget of $50,000 and hope they make the cut and go low. Each week I’ll list the players who I think have the most value and give examples of potential lineups.
Select six players who fit into the $50,000 salary cap maximum at DraftKings.com. Player values are established by DraftKings.
Ok, whose idea was it to make these tournament 54 holes?
I WANT NAMES!!!!
I had the penultimate pairing finish T-11 each.
I can’t stomach to look up what Haas, Dufner and Leishman did on the weekend but it wasn’t inside the top 25 after a banging first two rounds.
Paul Casey’s T-4 would have been great if Fowler or Spieth would have done the business.
The long shots Kjeldsen (T-36) and Vegas (MC) were disappointing but fantasy golf is hard. At least they were proper long shots unlike people suggesting Jon Rahm was…
The pros will be back at it as the slumdog hundredaires go back to their real lives not to be seen again until the U.S. Open or maybe THE PLAYERS.
The pros are the angle this week as well as this isn’t a track that first-timers or rookies tend to have much success playing. There are always exceptions to the rule but not many over the last 10 years at Harbour Town Golf Links.
With Pete Dye messing with your eyes and brains, his bulkheads, doglegs and tiny greens will mess with your clubs as well.
Find guys who can scramble more than eggs and those who can work it onto those tiny greens.
As history has shown us many types of games work here but Kuchar, Gay, Furyk, Snedeker and McDowell aren’t winning any long drive contests. Petterson and Grace would.
Experience helps in the wind and club selection to navigate off the tee. Grace last year showed us that T-54 in fairways is fine if you’re T-2 SGTT and T-10 SGP.
As with most weeks, balance throughout the bag will help and so will experience.
My lineup this week:
Kevin Kisner ($9,700): Trying to catch lightning in a bottle here and avoid the Kuchar Tartan Army. This lightning was in a playoff two years ago with good weather at 18-under-par.
Bill Haas ($9,100): So solid and trending at HTGL. He’ll be overlooked as people put too much weight on the Masters finishes.
Charley Hoffman ($8,700): Plenty of great rounds here without missing the weekend has my interest. He’ll defend next week at Valero so he should be tuned in.
Pat Perez ($8,100): He’s on a different level in a good way and not much has slowed him down. His solid play registered last week at Augusta.
William McGirt ($7,900): I’m not sure what I’m missing here. I would have had him valued much higher. LICK ME I’M A SUCKER.
Geoff Ogilvy ($6,500): He hasn’t slammed his trunk in his last nine here. I’ll gladly enjoy this value.
For those of you who need options or alternates
Check my preview for others who may fit in different price ranges as I’ve weighed in a on a bunch of dudes in there.
One ping. One ping only.
Bryce Molder ($6,500): With a pair of top 15’s in his last two visits, this veteran knows how to score here.
Good luck you chops!
