I like the pools where you have to choose an A, B, C and D player.

BTW, no way I wouldn't take Justin Thomas as one of my four.

:nod: :nod:

We have to chose 8 players, and only 2 can be in the top 10. Highest score is dropped. If they miss the cut, their score (over par) is tripled for your total....

No way JT wins two weeks in a row.

And if I'm trying to pick a winner, why would I go out on a limb? :suspicious:

FWIW, Matsuyama won the Bridgestone last year and finished 5th in the PGA. Thomas should be in mix.

Yup. Golfers are often streaky. But I'll take my chances on my 4 for the win.

It's a very dog-leg left course. Only the 17th is a dog-leg right.
This helps guys like Bubba and Reed who play the ball right to left.
Also, the course is soft. Won't be much roll and the approach shots will target all pins.
Should be a shoot-out.

Depends where the trouble is and where their misses go. There are some courses that bend right to left but allow bailouts right while punishing those who over-cook it left.

Gary Woodland has the first round lead. Kisner and Fowler on the chase.

Koepka seems like a guy who when he’s on, is on. Wouldn’t be surprised to see him dominate over the weekend.

That old black guy that finished second was pretty impressive. He has a future.

My pool was top 4 of 5 picks and you got one alternate in case one of your picks never started the tourney.

Molinari -10
Thomas -10
Cantlay -6
Johnson -6

Fleetwood - 4
Schauffele - 4 (alternate)

So -32 aggregate... didn't even come close to sniffing top 4 money in the pool. :suspicious:

That 4-iron on the par-3 on the back nine (16th?) yesterday was absolutely ridiculous. :shock: :shock: :shock:
