If you need more explanations, please go back and read last week or the week of Sentry. I’m trying to streamline this for the degenerates who want the pick NOW NOW NOW.
LAST WEEK – The American Express
No surprise the winner came out of left field, again, this season so busting a big-ranked player wasn’t on my agenda. I tried to sneak Mickelson in the back door but once again he proves that nothing is something with him. Next year, I’m sticking with my thoughts from 3 AM at the blackjack table…
Phil Mickelson – MC
Lefty was three-under thru five and finished 49 more holes at the same total. I won’t have to worry about using him again but I’ve noticed my MC have equaled my top-10 results thru 14 events so there are no winners this week.
Safety Dance: Top 10 in BOLD
Rickie Fowler – T10. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. Led after 36, faded on the weekend, he’ll be a massive call this week at home.
Tony Finau – T14. 62 on Friday interjected him into the proceedings but four-under on the weekend was never going to contend. I can hear the engine turning over…
Sungjae Im – T10. For an event that’s not easy to wrangle, these safety picks did just fine. Im’s worst round was 69, as is usually the case!
Kevin Kisner – MC: Opened with 74 and that was that. I’ll need to write it on the chalkboard: SAVE FOR SE USA ONLY.
Ben An – MC: Never broke 70; reinforced that if putting counts, he shouldn’t be in the discussion.
Jason Kokrak – MC/Paul Casey – T21: Kokrak was dire and Casey faded on Sunday after furrowing his way into the top 10 after Saturday.
3AM at the Blackjack Table:
Bud Cauley – T4, Dominic Bozzelli – MC, Brendan Steele – T43, D.J. Trahan -T68
This Week – Farmers Insurance Open
The column above goes into greater detail on what I believe it’s going to take to win this week and obviously that influences what I write below:
I’m not over-thinking this like I have the last few years. He’s playing well currently and he has the tools to take on the biggest yard on TOUR. The Poa won’t bother him and neither will be the names on the leaderboard on Sunday. Time to kick the door down and take home another W.
Justin Rose: For those of you who love a course horse not named Woods, here’s your answer. Rose will be in this section more times than not during the year because he feasts just about everywhere.
Rory McIlroy: Didn’t have any problem here last year on debut but I have bigger plans for a dude who hasn’t won a major since 2014.
Tiger Woods: Yeah, he rakes here but I learned what I needed to learn at the Masters last year.
Jon Rahm: Right, you just gotta pick the correct week.
Gary Woodland: Similar to Finau and Fowler, he just doesn’t rattle off the wins we expect. The layout, and his past successes here, cries out. Remember, he’s won at TPC Scottsdale, just like Fowler and Matsuyama, and will be there next week.
Charles Howell III: Wash, rinse, repeat. Oh, sorry about that MC last week. He’s 17-for-17 here though.
Jason Day: Coming off a back injury that forced him to miss the cut doesn’t scream TAKE ME THIS WEEK but he’s one that plays hurt often. Not my cup of tea in this field.
Brandt Snedeker: Another two-time winner who, unlike Day, is healthy and coming off T12 LTO at Sony. Sneds also eats at Pebble, which isn’t 7 million yards.
Keegan Bradley: Bombs away, fam.
3AM at the Blackjack Table:
Scottie Scheffler, Cameron Champ, Joel Dahmen, Talor Gooch,
Check out my previous results below if you need a history lesson:
My majors contributions and PLAYERS selection were worse than bad so to still break the $10 million mark with those awful results was encouraging.
Another valuable lesson learned is that the Playoffs are for the big boys. Now, WHICH big boys make this more and more difficult and that’s why it’s enjoyable and maddening all at the same time. Only McIlroy and Woods have won the FedExCup twice so start there.
