2014 Accenture Match Play Championship - Page 11

post #181 of 200
Finally caught up. Insane finish, I fully expected Dubuisson to jar his flop shot on the last playoff hole.

The probability is clearly non-zero... a1_smile.gif

Great win for Jason Day. Seems like a truly good guy. Always been a fan an rooted for him finally glad to see him get another W. Here's hoping he gets a major this year. Also like Duboisson as well. Seemed like a good attitude about the entire tournament.

Amazing golf. Happy for Jason . . . this could give him some huge momentum going into August in a month!

I placed $10 to win on him in Vegas at the Masters. 15-1 odds when I bet him.

Y'all can anticipate your bets, but remember, he was 3 up on the back and couldn't close the deal in regulation. That's the issue with Jason and a lot of other guys who we think should win ... Mahan, et al ... they can't close the deal. If they closed it once in a while, that's one thing. But you've got to close it... They're in danger of becoming a Furyk. Close it one time ... but when they get close or in the lead, they falter...

 

You can have a great career and make loads of money, and everyone mentioned does, but we don't put them in the all-time elite.

It's an either/or scenario. From the official PGA Tour exempt list:

20. Players who finished greater than or equal to top 125 on the 2013 PGA TOUR Official Season FedExCup Points List or top 125 on the 2013 Official Season Money List through the Wyndham Championship as non-members:

Money is an easier threshold, since a player can get there with a couple of good money finishes in major, WGC, or top-tier invitational events. As it stands, Dubuisson has unlimited exemptions for the rest of the season to any tourney that extends an invitation. As we learned from Spieth last year, he won't be eligible for FedEx Cup points in 2014 unless he wins before the playoffs.

Ah, so things have changed, but not as much as I thought they might have. Thanks!

Ahh, thanks, I just looked up from doing something else and saw him taking practice swings and brushing the sand with each one. :blink:

Just watched this again, for the 3rd time :)
One of those great sporting moments where, even though you are aware of the result - each time you re watch it, it seems like you're watching it live and the result hangs in the balance.

Great to see him break through onto that side of the pond. He has been very impressive on the Euro Tour. He looks all set for his Ryder Cup place.

I think there'll be another one or two young Europeans with him on the team, it'll be a "changing of the old guard" somewhat.
I can't see Westwood or Donald making it, time to step aside and let Victor, Fleetwood and Manassero earn their stripes.

Agree to a point ... I do think Westwood will get it together & make the team.    Luke - anybody know whats wrong with him ????      Is it just a slump or something more ?

Luke Donald, I know exactly what's wrong with him: I took him on both of my fantasy golf teams. :loco:

:-$ hahaha, I share your pain on that some weeks. 

 

To be honest I think Luke Donald will turn it around before Westwood does. 

 

I also wonder what will happen to Poulter and the Ryder Cup team if he continues with this foul play.

On the brighter side, I have Day and Fowler on one of my teams, and I squeaked out with the weekly money for the Matchplay!

 

:banana:

 

Look! Here's Jason Day watching Dubuisson hitting out of the dessert >>  :tumble:

He went into a deep depression after Foley turned him down.

He hits his driver short and crooked, still managed to earn 2 million last year, not sure if I'd call that a slump.

Looking at this weeks OWGR update - IMO, it is crazy that the OWGR match play gets full points. The 32 who only played the first round get 1.95 points as T33, those who win one match get 4.19 points T17, win 2 matches get 8.415 points for T9 (and it is a top 10 finish).

 

I get that the field is "strong" and therefore the points are higher than a regular tour event, but if you win a match or two it isn't like you had to beat 1/2 the field.

 

Just my thoughts.....carry on!

How would you do it?

 

To award less points, you'd be saying that they finished significantly lower in a tournament than they "did." Should winning two matches be the equivalent of making the cut in a regular PGA Tour event?
