RBC Canadian Open PGA Tour Game

07-26-17

Like the Jefferson’s last week, I was movin’ on up!

This week playing defense might be more important than a good offense.

More details below:

Each week, I’ll trot out guys who I believe who fit the course, the game and the road map, plus add some substitutes. Four starters are supported by two bench players each week. Remember, once a player tees off in your lineup he burns a start, so make sure you need to sub out instead of want to sub out.

You’ll learn a few things about me each week in this column.

Games, like this one, that involve daily substitution options, I am terrible at playing.

I’ll give you my best four starters and two bench options but it’s up to you to outguess me on which rounds they should sit or play.

Last Time — The Open Championship   

 

  • Tournament Points: 784
  • Tournament Rank: 346
  • Season Points: 33,279
  • Season Rank: 85

That’s more like it.

My six finished first, second, T-11, T-22, T-22 and T-37.

With scoring the only metric being used you had to find top players who did the business. Spieth was the easy one but there’s no doubt having Kuchar shot me up the leaderboard from 154 to 85.

Having all six make the cut was just gravy and it’s nice to be back inside the top 100 again.

Now, I gotta find a way to stay here!

 

This Week

The pros exhale this week on a track that should find a few more birdies than they circled last week at Royal Birkdale.

Par five scoring will be enhanced by those who can give it knock down the fairway and those who can get hot with the putter on the Bentgrass greens.

With only eight events left, managing starts is again a big deal this week.

I saved a start on DJ last week so he’s an easy first choice this week.

Same for Kuchar.
