Fog anyone? The number one killer of a golf tournament is always the weather. Unlike Crazy Gabey who thoroughly enjoys weather as a factor and would like to see tournament play in extreme weather (while also allowing for extra strokes if you hit a tournament attendee), that’s not necessarily how the PGA sees the climate. One thing the weather did do was scratch the 54 Hole “second” cut. The field will remain at 87 and players will play in there groups for the remaining holes. This means our boy Billy Horschel gets the privilege (or the horrifying experience) of playing with Tiger for the 36 remaining holes. I don’t know if this would be my definition of a “Sunday Funday”, especially if it’s for the big money. This also means that the tournament will end on Monday and cuts into research time for the fantasy golfer. You guys have nothing to worry about, however, because I will push it into the wee hours of the night to make sure “we” (as in all of us) make well informed picks for the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
For the fantasy golfer, the weather helps and hurts us. We get some help from no secondary cut; our golfers are safe and can score for the next 36 Holes. It hurts us because of our research time and because some of our potential plays may not make the OQ at the Waste Management Phoenix Open (Billy Horschel included.) This is the second time this year we have seen a weather hindered tournament and it does get frustrating, but ultimately we roll with the punches and move on! Our Daily Fantasy Radio picks are still doing well (because they haven’t played any golf yet) and should be fine to finish out the tournament in decent standing. I am looking to cash pretty high in one GPP and place in a few other small tourneys. I really hope Tiger can hold his lead and pull out his first win of the year. You guys know how much I love Tiger, but you also know (as new fantasy golfing enthusiasts) that Tiger’s stock will go crazy for the Majors if he pulls down an early win.
I want to end “The Daily Round” by getting sentimental. If you get to know me personally, which most of you will because of the DFS camaraderie, then you will find out I have a little bit of this in me. I want to thank every one of you for reading “The Daily Round” and for checking out Daily Fantasy Radio. It is my desire that “we” (all of us) make Daily Fantasy Radio a community of winners and that “we” help every single reader and viewer make money. If you have any questions or want to ridicule me about my picks, hit me up on the twitterverse @FanGolfTimes. Thanks guys and keep being “In it To Win it!
