A bit different than the 1896 edition which featured 35 players but Shinnecock Hills showed its teeth again today.
Only five players signed for par or better of the 156 who teed it up. There was also a 92. Woof.

Ladies and Gentlemen
If the big boys make their schedules around the major championships, I’d suggest your fantasy teams do the like!
With the OWGR top 60 in attendance, I probably won’t need to get to No. 10 to put a six-man squad together.
It shouldn’t be an easy selection.
I hope you’re flopping and flipping back-and-forth like I have been.
I don’t think you’re WRONG this week regardless but for $2.16 million for first place and 600 FedExCup points, I’d sure like to nail it!
All of our favorite muses on a fantastic track.
My picks will drop in here tomorrow around noon, as usual, but there is PLENTY of stuff in here to get you started:
ED: Preview added at 11:45 am
I can’t possibly be terrible for three weeks in a row, right?
The final year as the final tune-up before the U.S. Open as the FEJSC will become the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational beginning with the 2018-19 PGA TOUR Season. I’ve gotten that wrong all week but I’ve gotten it right this time!
Berger has no problem getting it right around these parts!
TPC Southwind will host for the final time before the U.S. Open as the PGA TOUR calendar will see them pick up a WGC position next season. World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational will debut during the 2018-19 PGA TOUR Season.
He sure is. Notice both of them listed!
Here’s Part I of The Confidence Factor to get you started.
My picks will show up here tomorrow at the normal time!
Ed: Picks posted 1:10 ET Wednesday
Ed: Changed from FedExCup Playoff to WGC event above.
It was a tough first round for some of the biggest names in golf.
Tomorrow could possibly have weather introduced to the proceedings.
Never a dull moment in fantasy land!
Round 2 Recap Here
Blew a tire or four last week.
Dropped almost 400 spots.
That will not be the case this week as there are plenty of big boys to make up the lineup.
