Tiger, Tiger Woods Y’all! Or should I say Lindsey Vonn, Vonn, Vonn Ya’ll! Heck I don’t care what we say, being the huge Tiger Woods fan, I am extremely excited to see him sitting atop the leader board. Tiger Woods got to play a shorter North Course yesterday (even in the rain) and took advantage of the length. Woods looked like vintage Tiger as he rolled down the fairways, even without that whiney Adam Scott Caddy! Woods posted 6 birds and 1 Eagle, as he finished up his 2nd round at -11. Usually a 2 shot lead like this for Woods means run away time, but many “experts” have claimed that he doesn’t have that ability anymore. Well I may not be the “expert” like these ESPN and Golf Channel guys, but boys, saddle up because Tiger is moving. His closest competitor at -9 is 26 year old Billy Horschel. Horschel will find himself in the final grouping with Woods and Casey Wittenberg (-8.) This is a place I definitely wouldn’t want to find myself (crowds and the pressure of playing in Woods group), but Horschel claims that it is a non-issue. He says that he has played against big names before (Rory Mac) and that he will be fine. I don’t know about you, but I love Tiger and I would rather watch him, than play against him.
Like I mentioned yesterday during the Daily Fantasy Radio live show, it is important to pay attention to weather. Golfers are facing fog and potentially dreary weather again, so this could cause lower scoring. I look forward to watching guys tackle the South course head on, and I am looking forward to seeing how much of an affect the weather will have on driving distance. On the fantasy side of things it is looking pretty good. I am cashing in two GPP’s and only had two guys miss the cut in those leagues. For our DFR picks, we look pretty solid. Out of our 6 “main” picks and our Bubba Debacle we have every guy, minus Bubs, making the cut! Not bad from a fantasy standpoint. Pay attention to a 2nd round of cuts today. This is unusual, but because of the tourney taking 84 golfers they are going to cut again after this round. We need Colsaerts to move today and get into the final round.
We have some awesome fantasy golf news coming next week! I will let Crazy Gabey fill you in, but this will definitely be the week to get involved with fantasy golf. The Daily Round will have a full recap tomorrow and the overall affect on golfers for the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Thanks for coming back to Daily Fantasy Radio!
