My draftkings lineup this weekend.

I went with:

Brendon de Jonge

Luke Donald

Rickie Fowler

Jim Furyk

David Hearn

Henrik Stenson

I just hope they all make the cut, I have been plagued by a couple of my guys missing the cut weekly, but this seems like a solid lineup

Nice group Grinde.

Rory has had 3 decent looks at birdie on the first 3 holes. None have dropped.


Thanks!  I like yours too, every time I do the PGA Draftkings I see other peoples lineups after it has started and think, crap!  I like the Westwood, Sergio, Kuchar thing you have going on...hopefully my counter of Fowler, Henson, Furyk pays off...

I couldn't see spending the money on McIlroy or Speith as stupid as that sounds of late...then you end up with a bunch of low priced guys you are taking a gamble on...I would rather have a lineup like ours where all will make the cut and hopefully finish top 20 if not better instead of one for sure and a few unsures.

Yeah, all the players making the cut is the biggest thing going through my mind. If you have even one MC, you aren't going to make much back, probably nothing.

Is it just my imagination or has Troy Merritt been at the top of the leaderboard in a lot of tournaments lately?

He's your typical Kentucky Derby 50-1 thoroughbred that always starts off fast and is leading and then fades around the final stretch.

    • It sounds like you’re arguing that some students would have to drop out is a reason to forgive the loan…as if college college is an entitled right…that everyone is entitled to college.  It’s not; it’s like a car: you might need it for a job or career, but you’re not entitled to a car. You can buy one if you can afford it.  With that line of logic, where do you draw the line?  If I can’t afford my house and I would otherwise need to be homeless, then is the bank supposed to forgive my loan?  I’m not entitled to anything I can’t afford. It’s called living within my means and being fiscally responsible.
    • A lot of students, if they didn't take out the loan, would have to drop out of college.  In the STEM areas we need those students in school.  So I'm not terrifically opposed to forgiving loans.  Also, it's a small boost to the economy, allowing those graduates to spend their discretionary income and feed the the consumer economy. I paid off all my student loans... took some time.  Now, I need to call a credit card company or two to see if they'll forgive my loans...
    • I’d agreed with this logic 100%. I paid off my loans. It’s called being responsible for your decisions. Simply enough, I think people should be held responsible and be accountable for the decisions they make. I think our society is becoming increasingly irresponsible or denying personal accountability as people want to make excuses as to why they shouldn’t be held accountable for their own choices.    Ignorance is no excuse. They made the decision. They should seek wise council before taking the loan out. Maybe they could learn from their mistakes instead of bailing everyone out and they learn nothing except that they won’t be held responsible for the decisions they make.   having said all of that, moving forward, I’d agree college unjustifiably expensive and reform would be welcomed
    • There are a good number of students who sign up for students loans on their own. Being at that age, I doubt they understand loan terms, and what it means later on. Colleges obviously push for them to take out loans because it means more money for them.  I doubt majority of HS students know the ins and outs of student loan debt, and how to manage their finances.  I agree.  It's mostly because of administrative expansion so they can keep raising tuition. Basically, colleges are bloated with administrative positions that add no benefit to the students.  That might be for private schools, but public schools can have their tuition capped by the governor. This happened to many State schools in Ohio to combat tuition cost.  I wonder if we have a shortage of colleges? At Ohio State, the required ACT and SAT scores skyrocketed a few years after I got accepted. I think there is just so many more people wanting to go to college, there isn't enough spots.  I do think there needs to be some regulatory reform to help change the price point for colleges. At least for things like room and board. By your example, it is $1333 for rent! Like, that is a good apartment in most places. I lived in a nice apartment for $550 a month after college. Two bedroom, kitchen, like 800 square foot. Maybe room and board should be based on local renting pricing, based on living space and amenities in the room. Where I had that apartment, maybe the room and board needs to be like maxed out at 20% higher than apartments with in 10 miles of the campus.  I think it is degree based. If your school is like a top-5 in business, it might be worth it. Otherwise, just go to your state college or community college. No need to go to a private college unless you are getting a scholarship opportunity. I wouldn't send my kid to Harvard/Yale if they paid me. BLEH!!!  Not a fan 😛  In the end, 99% of jobs don't say, "Bachelor degree from Yale". Some do, like high level entry jobs on Wall Street. Most jobs just care if you have a degree.  I never see it this way. If everyone thought this way, progress would never happen. I do think some reduction in college cost or refund of some kind is needed. The student debt is crippling an entire generation of students who have no other choice. It makes it so they can't buy a home till they're 40. It just kills the ability to save for retirement and gain net worth. I think fixing the system, even if it means those who paid off their student loans before hand are upset, is better for everyone in the long run.
