I’ve run out of hours in the day.
Had a nice one brewing last week but sadly it was a 72-hole event (haha).
Yep, Sunday counts as well and we all cry in our beer when it doesn’t hit.

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.
AT&T Byron Nelson saw MC X 4 Billy Horschel take home the big prize. Normally, I would complain about this but after reading his wife’s story about being an alcoholic, I’m not.
There’s usually a reason a talent player is playing like shit. Sometimes it’s a girl. Sometimes it’s health. Sometimes it’s business.
It’s always something as these guys don’t just forget how to play.
Let’s see how we did:
Sergio Garcia ($11,000):65-64 middle put him in a prime position again this week to take advantage on Sunday. For the second week in a row he posted a big number (74) but remained in the top 20 (T-20).
Brooks Koepka ($10,200): Sat pretty after 36 at five-under and was still in it after 70 on Saturday. His Sunday 74 knocked him out of the top 20 and crushed gamers along multiple (read: ALL) formats as he collected T-50.
Bud Cauley ($7,800): T-5; Keep him at this price, pretty please!
Smylie Kaufman ($7,100): T-35; His solid play continues on courses that require tee-to-green performance.
Nick Taylor ($6,900): T-9; Imagine if Koepka and Garcia hadn’t fallen apart on Sunday! Taylor bags his second top 10 in a row and we were there to collect.
Keegan Bradley ($6,900): T-27; Former champ and course record holder did the business after his opening round 74 as he played the final three rounds seven-under-par.
Ryan Palmer ($8,200): T-27 is very solid but I was expecting a bit more based on his recent form and history on this track.
One ping. One ping only.
Beau Hossler ($6,100): He made the cut and finished T-61. Not bad for a guy who just played his 10th Tour event.
Left some cash on the table but I like what I like!
Interesting price on BIlly Hurley, III if you’re looking outside the box.
Kevin Tway’s form finds value as well.
If you’re riding Spieth this week, and I don’t blame you, you’re going to need plenty of ammo backing him.
