I want to preface The Daily Round by saying thank you. Thank you guy’s for logging on last night and checking out Crazy Gabey’s first DFR live show. I know that some parts were rocky, not @Crazy Gabey of course, but we will do our best to provide you with the most in-depth daily fantasy coverage on the web.
It is our desire that you win and win a lot. I, along with everybody else Daily Fantasy Radio will do “whatever it takes” to make sure that you become the profitable DFS player we all wish to be. Just like @CrazyGabey said last night, to be a consistent winner one has to be willing to diversify. Fantasy golf is the perfect arena to put the gloves on in. Check out Fantazzle and get in the golf daily fantasy game. Also, feel free to make fun of my southern drawl anytime I get the privilege of being a guest on the DFR live show, it’s pretty much all I’ve got going for me (other than my 5’8, 220 Frame and Dashingly Good Looks!) (Editor’s Note: He’s the sexiest thing you’ve ever seen.)
Now on to the golf! I am extremely excited to watch the golf at Torrey Pines this upcoming weekend. Torrey Pines is a beautiful course (North and South) and should provide us with some great golf action. I was really impressed with Crazy Gabey’s newfound golf knowledge last night. He covered a guy named Jordan Spieth. Spieth was an excellent amateur golfer and should carry some of that success over into future tournaments. He has performed well in “big” tournaments in the past, but I don’t really see him breaking out like Russell Henley did a couple of weeks ago. Torrey Pines is set up to play long and really bids well to the guys that have played there before. Spieth isn’t one of these guys. Could he surprise us? Sure. Especially with the way equipment plays (Spieth is sponsored by Under Armour) and the golf knowledge that these young guys carry these days, but ultimately I think the winner will be someone we all know (even the “never” watched golf fan.)
Tee Times start midday today. Remember (from the Whole in One report) that the North course plays the easiest, so in theory we should see lower scores from the players that play the North course. The South course is long and will be played once by each player in the first two rounds. After the first two rounds golfers will play the South course only. All of them will have to go long to be successful, so let the “bombs” fly. For you “noobs” make sure to check Vegas odds before each tournament. I mentioned it last night in the chat, but just like player props in the NBA, Vegas odds usually are a great predictor of a high finisher. @Fantazzle has some great games to choose from and may even be offering final two round pick-em’ soon. Check them out for your daily fantasy golf play. The Daily round tomorrow will cover all of the first round action at the Farmers Insurance Open. Let’s hope our picks hit and we make a lot of green!
