I'm disappointed that Freddie isn't available as a fantasy pick this week.
 He is playing with Spieth & Thomas, and there should be plenty of tour sauce between them to bring him along for the weekend; how can the king of cool not be one of the players listed?

All "Hail the King - @gogolfing " as he racks up yet another Fantasy Golf, Championship...... And yes, congrats to all TST fantasy golf members for another fun season. Glad we had several new

430 points in the Dell bracket challenge. Had Day for win and Rory picked to win 3rd, but he lost. Was hoping for a Day / Fowler shootout.....

Okay folks, a new league for 2016 has been set up for The Sandtrap once again. I believe we have to be one of the hottest groups on Yahoo as a good many of us kick the "Expert Pick" guy's ass every ye

Jordan is just crap today. ugh

Wow- that was a surprise.  I yanked him for Sergio this week, who also failed to get within 10 of the leader. I think only one of my starters got any points today. Cosmic justice for various lucky rounds these past few weeks.

I had Jordan as my A and Sergio on the bench so my A slot is screwed unless someone has a major bounce back tomorrow. I hope Jordan bounces back big tomorrow but I suspect the best I'll see out of either of them tomorrow is a 71.

Ha ha! Yeah, I had Spieth and Garcia in my A slots too.  Started Sergio.  I don't feels as bad striking out with Sergio as I would have with Spieth.  Because you just know Spieth is going to shake off this slump.

Great minds must think alike. My A players are also Jordan and Sergio

I think I need a new strategy - I'm going to start to pick guys who I don't think will win, and who I don't really like. I would do better that way and avoid Spieth messing up my scoring early & Rory doing it later in the weekend. Because even if I pick guys who play decent, I still screw up my substitutions and leave points on the bench.

I'm sure I'll do much better now that the tour is starting the southern swing leading for the next 3 months.

I set my lineup earlier this week, waiting until after yahoo sent out the email for week 8, and I have the box checked for "show only entered golfers".  Decided to give Webb Simpson a shot.  Looked at my roster this morning to find out he is not entered. Lame...

Be sure to double check your roster on Wednesday night!

I switched him out last night for Colt Knost. Pays to stay up late and be paranoid.:-D

Edit: Looks like Colt isn't doing too well anyway.

Way to go Kokrack!  Go out and shoot 79 today. Patrick Reed Plus 4.  Great showing for my B listers.

Seems like it's common that when a player surges like Kokrak did last week, that they'll fall apart the next week. Didn't Vaughan Taylor do something like that? Fabian Gomez wins, then has a couple cuts, I think. Grillo won Frys, then cut the next week at Shriners. 

Not always, but happens enough that I wonder if when an "upstart" type of player has a breakout week, if there's something too difficult about keeping the roll going through the next week. I'd have to look at a more complete list and counter-examples, I suppose.  I think guys like Smylie Kaufman or Kevin Kisner have held together ok after their breakthroughs.

I'm picking all of my players based on the same stat and will report at the end of the season how well it holds up. Obviously I cant forget to make changes from Friday into the weekend after guys get cut.

Yeah - I always click the only show players entered box, and today I see that Chaz Reavie is not entered - so my only hope this week from my C player is Smylie; thankfully he played well today.

Oh yeah and it looks like I need to sub out ZJ

How funny, my C player got me a whopping two points.  Thanks Fabian!  At least I have Ricky Barnes in reserve there.

Fowler (A) and Walker (B) were good choices for starters though :-)

    • I just recently bought the book from Amazon. Very interesting concept. Tom Saguto has a ton of videos on the subject & has an online golf school. He recently attended a Stack & Tilt seminar in Florida hosted by Mike & Andy. Tom's videos are on u-tube.
    • Day 11 - Worked on post impact follow through as I tend to stop rotating and making chicken wings.  Was able to do late setting sun chips/pitches where I could barely make out the flagsticks in the fading light.  Went to “see it/feel it/trust it” mode focusing on what I am feeling thru the setup, backswing, downswing and follow thru.....
    • Hi guys... Well after a bit of tweaking, he's hitting the driver beautifully... The final adjustment was to go to a double overlap grip... Results, together with the flaring are wonderful.... Cheers to all....
    • First swings of 2021. Jeez. Oh I figured out why my audio was off in previous videos. Debris stuck in the phone’s microphone holes. Kind of surprised I didn’t lose too much of the swing from inactivity. Chalk that up to video and experience.  
    • Does that mean we don't have to see that large polo pony again?  That was a stupid word for him to use, tip of tongue.  I have used words in anger, on a golf course, about a certain mother (but I love my Mother) that I would not want picked up on a mic.  Generally, I just grumble loudly... arrrggghhh!.  That covers anything and everything and I don't lose my sponsorship with Ralph Lauren.
