Then take the field


Back when I worked at a golf course we would have pools for the US open where you'd pick 4 golfers and added up the money they won to determine the winner. It was really picking 3 golfers since everyone always had Tiger as one of their 4. I guess Dustin Johnson would be the closest to that these days.

I think Rickie Fowler breaks through this year.

Yeah I do a pool like that, tiered by World Golf Rankings where you pick 5 a week and get their “winnings.” Each week has individual winners and there’s a year long component where whoever has the most money at end of year wins the larger pool.

As for betting individual golf tournaments, I rarely do unless I’m in Vegas and just looking to horsefeathers around and throw $20-50 on a guy or 2, but most “pro” betting guys I follow on social media don’t bet tournament winner odds a ton. If they do it’s usually only long odds guys at 20/1+ odds (think like a Patrick Reed in a good field) since the payouts/odds to win on the big names aren’t worth the risk or they even wait until going in to a Sunday to bet on guys who at least you know have a chance. Those guys typically seem to bet make/miss cuts, individual daily matchups, total birdies/bogies, top 5/10/20 finish, etc. That seems to be where you can find an angle, especially currently with how strong golf is, there’s about ~20 guys in any given tournament now who may win and it’s not a big surprise.

Are they still showing those commercials? I don't watch a lot of TV. Hadn't seen one since right after the super bowl.

A couple weeks ago, Bubba Watson had missed the fairway and is getting relief from a tent or something. Some fan yells to him him "You're the man". Bubba Watson replies "If I were the man, I'd be in the fairway".

It’s ridiculous they do it for all tournaments but it’s downright egregious for the Masters they don’t broadcast the whole tournament somewhere (I know u can watch certain holes/groups online but just horsefeathering show it on golf channel until it hits a network around noon/2 pm).

Yeah. But that's not much different than the telecast.

I seem to remember they never showed much of the front 9 of Augusta on TV for some other reason.

Ah yes, a punch in the face. The original penalty stroke.

This Phil Mickelson controversy is quite something. The USGA really dropped the ball from what it appears.

Nope, they got it exactly right. The rule people wanted them to use to DQ him explicitly states that if any other rule covers the violation, it takes precedence. In this case, hitting a moving ball is the violation, not attempting to stop a ball in motion. The real travesty is the idiot announcing crew having their panties in a wad over the whole thing and saying Mickelson will have to rebuild his reputation or whatever. just over the top nonsense.
