I don't really know how the bench works, but I just did a quick first round swap, got rid of Ryan Palmer and put in Harris English.

Palmer finished 5 over and Harris is current 4 under and I know he's been very consistent. Not sure why I didn't put him in right away.

Patrick Reed has been so consistent lately, hard not to pick him. Though I heard something like he had displaced ribs recently? Well Stadler is a consistent back up if he doesn't make the cut. I picked Furyk strictly for experience reasons. He almost always makes the cut at Pebble Beach. Curious to how rusty he is. I couldn't believe G-Mac is considered C Level....I mean the guy won the US Open at Pebble haha. Oh well, good for me.....I hope.

Definitely ^^

and ughhhhh!!! Why do my bench players kick so much ass every round! I should just pick a bench team and then swap them in right before the event starts....confuse the golf gods a little bit.

Spieth, Mahan, Walker, and Stadler all had good rounds.

My starting team is collectively -9.... bench is -18

Hope I'm not intruding, not sure if this is for a specific league, but I have a question that you guys may be able to help me out with.

My league is set up where every team has 11 players and you start 7 each week.  On my bench is Tim Clark who has been non-existent so far this year and I don't know if I should just drop him for someone else or keep him riding the pine until he shows up.  I know he withdrew due to injury in Hawaii, but I haven't seen any updates since then.  Anyone know what his deal is?  Guy has turned into a ghost!

TC has been MIA due to soreness in his elbow.

He probably will need several weeks for recovery.

He was playing very well, hope he's doesn't miss many more events.

I'm going to play along with @Crim and post my starters.

I like several players this week, but do not want to burn their "starts" each and every week.

So this is a maintenance week and I am going with alternative players.

^^ Nice, not bad at all.

Spieth, DeLeat and Walker have been on a role lately, and Walker has stated that this is his favorite tournament.

I just hope that my bench team doesn't completely own my starters like the last couple weeks.

Thank goodness I picked Rickie Fowler instead of Phil as my backup. If Tiger doesn't make the cut I can switch to Rickie.

    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      Look at Ben Hogan. He played in exactly one Open Championship. Before Arnold Palmer brought it back into the fold as something you should be playing every year it was just too expensive for such a little purse to win. There wasn't much prestige in winning it during that time.  Look at the US open. Since 1993, only 52% of the time a non-US golfer won the US Open. From 1950 till 1993 only 92% of was won by US golfers.   Same with the PGA Championship. Since 1993 the US has only won 56% of them. From the time they went to stroke play (1958) till 1992 the US won 86% of them.  Same with The Masters. Since 1993 the US has won 56% of them. From 1950 till 1992 the US won 77% of them.  It just goes to show you that the influx of non-US golfers to the PGA Tour field of players has made it that much more difficult for US golfers to win a major.  Could I say that it was 30% easier for Jack to win those majors because of the non-US golfers who stayed away from traveling to the US to play?  US Open: 40% less likely US player wins after 1993
      PGA Championship: 30% less likely a US Player wins after 1993
      The Masters: 20% less likely a US Player wins after 1993

    • Longer or More Accurate?
      That doesn't make it a trick question. People aren't so lousy with accuracy that they're off 200 yards, but their tee shots travel 200 yards toward the target fairly often. The 10% thing helps to adjust them to the proper scale. I hit my driver 270, but I don't miss by 1/4 of that distance (67.5 yards). The wildest 100-shooting golfers are about +/- 10°. Their average is about 7°. 80-golfers are around 6°. 70 golfers probably about 5°. PGA Tour pros are around 3.5°. So 10% of those numbers are 0.7, 0.6, and 0.5°, with 0.35° for PGA Tour players. And yet, give each of them a full 1° (or  14% more accuracy for 100-golfers, 17% more accuracy for 80-golfers, 20% more accuracy for 70-golfers, and nearly 30% more accuracy for PGA Tour players… and they still come up short (or, at the PGA Tour level, only begin to break even). This means that the poll is biased, indeed, but in the opposite direction you think, @Marty2019. The poll could have said "would you choose 25% more accuracy or 10% more distance" and everyone (generalized to groups, not individuals) would STILL be better off choosing the distance. The only "trick" is that people value accuracy way, way too much, to the point where many are happy to take only a 10% improvement in accuracy while even a 25% improvement still can't account for the added value of driving the ball an extra 10% farther.
