Lynde takes PGA without Tiger; 8-way tie for 2nd

2007-08-12T21:27:50.445-07:00

I am still scratching my head on this one, but Russell Lynde somehow won the pool without Tiger in his foursome. The Sunday charge by Els combined with uninspired rounds from Daly, Choi and others gave Russell just enough to separate himself from the pack of 8 entries tied for 2nd.

By nailing the tiebreaker, pool veteran Lou Holtz secured second place all by himself, while the 3rd place winnings will be split between pool rookie Michael Hubly and Michael Domin.

Congrats to the winners and thanks for playing!

Logjam at top in pool; Tiger still cruising

2007-08-11T16:12:05.676-07:00

If not for a very competitive pool, tomorrow's final round of the PGA probably wouldn't warrant that much attention in my house. Just a sample of what's on the TV tomorrow afternoon that is arguably more compelling:

- multiple baseball games
- women's soccer
- NASCAR
- men's tennis
- futbol mexicano
- Charlie's Angels (the movie)

In the pool, we have 15 or more Tiger teams in contention, led by Tony Giuliano and the 3-man foursome from Burnett/Reyes/Ward. Tomorrow turns into a match among Verplunk, Ames, Choi, Daly and others. Should be good to watch (I'd put Charlie's Angels in the PIP).

Good luck!



Tiger tears up Tulsa; Cronkey holds slim lead

2007-08-10T22:08:32.195-07:00

The only storyline on Friday was the way Tiger tamed Southern Hills with a 7-under 63. Woods nearly set a record for the low round in a major, lipping out a 15-foot birdie putt on 18.

While I'm hoping for a weekend of competitive golf, I'm reminded by the following:

- Woods is 7-0 when leading a major after 36 holes
- the 36-hole leader has gone on to win in the six previous majors Southern Hills has hosted

Of course, it's only halftime and there is still a lot of golf to be played. The only sure thing so far is that Vijay, Furyk, DiMarco, Weir and others couldn't manage to stay above the cut line and won't be around to even challenge for the Wanamaker Trophy. Those of you who missed the cut (33) likely have them to blame for a slightly less interesting major weekend.

Our current leader is Damon Cronkey, whose four players are all in the top 10. Most of the entries in the top 25 have local boy, Scott Verplank, to thank. That also means our leaderboard could change very quickly on Saturday...

Daly in eye of the Storm; 3-way tie at top of pool

2007-08-09T18:12:58.845-07:00

A few interesting story lines in the tournament so far:

John Daly (world ranking: 423), our freebie, shooting an opening round 67
- his pre-tourney prep: sat in air-conditioned comfort playing slots. On Wednesday, practiced for three hours at nearby Cherokee Resort & Casino.

Don't cry for me, Argentina
- Cabrera, this year's US Open champ, and Romero, one of the hottest players on tour, both throw up 81s.

Heat in Tulsa
- Why is this such a big deal? From what I can tell, Tulsa is generally pretty hot during the summer.

In the pool, we have well over 100 entries again. 1st ROUND LEADER was extremely popular (picked 37 times), and per usual, those teams are sprinting out of the gate. In fact, there are about 10 entries with both 1st ROUND and Daly that bunched up at the top our leaderboard. Hard for these folks to be really confident about Graeme Storm and Big John hanging around come the weekend.

Despite best efforts, Tiger (25) at $14 was still the most popular player pick, but the picks were more evenly distributed this time. Rose (22), Weir (20), Choi (17), Furyk (17), DiMarco (15) showed up on a lot of cards as well, but only Rose and Choi showed up on the course.

Hunter Mahan was the value pick of choice - and so far, the smart money looks smart.

There were clear differences of opinion on the college conference picks. (We're all just biding time until football season starts, aren't we?) The BIG 12 did seem to be strongest on paper, especially with potential local knowledge, while the ACC did not get much love. (Love - get it?)

Thanks for playing and good luck!

Sergio surges in Rd 1; Staples takes early lead

2007-07-19T17:50:04.225-07:00

Did you wake up this morning, see a leaderboard of McGinley, Sato, Brier and Daly and figure it was the 84 Lumber Golf Classic?

Car-nasty did not play as tough as expected today, despite the usual crappy weather of the UK. Red numbers lit up the scoreboard, led by none other than (dramatic pause) Sergio Garcia. Unless you count the Bud commercials, Sergio was last seen on primetime TV melting down in a final round pairing with Tiger at last year's Open. In 2007, Garcia has yet to make a major cut, but lo and behold, he is your 1ST ROUND LEADER.

Regardless of history, Serg surely has to be a better bet than the other contenders for 1ST ROUND LEADER. Paul McGinley has played in 25 majors with only one top 10 (only 3 MCs though). Through 6 PGA Tour events this year, Michael Campbell has earned the same amount of money as Neve Campbell. And Daly - oh, to have Big John, after very public battles with whiskey and gambling, contending in Scotland, where both are readily available - wouldn't that be a sight to see?

For our pool, we have 130 entries, our umpteenth major with year-over-year growth. Tiger was by far the most popular choice (46) again, despite the significant price premium. To offset those Tiger teams, FRANCE (33) as the freebie was almost a de facto selection. The smart money was also flocking to Rose (30) and Fasth (27), but that cash is down the drain.

Our current leader is Staples, who is doubling up on Sergio. If Garcia is in contention, he'll be tough to beat.

Thanks for playing and good luck!

A couple of last minute scratches: Olazabal and Shingo are out, replaced by Pernice and Glover.

Also, Gregory Havret, by way of his finish in Scottish Open, also qualified for the British Open, so is now part of the FRANCE grouping.

Don't forget tiebreakers!

Touch of an Angel; Piebenga robs Mrva again

2007-06-17T19:37:18.451-07:00

(image) More evidence as to why golf is not a real sport: a rolly-polly, chain smoker named Angel holds off a buffed-out Tiger Woods for the 2007 US Open. Furyk also made a valiant run on the back nine, but his bogey on 17 (the short par-4 ) kept him out of a playoff with Cabrera.

In our pool, in a replay of the 2006 British Open pool, Greg Mrva's 4sum was caught from behind by Jon Piebenga, after taking the 54-hole lead. This time, it was Stricker's 42 on the back nine (including a double on 17) that kept the champagne on ice yet again. (This is turning into quite a rivalry.) Piebenga adds his name to the short list of players that have two major pool wins.

Bubba Watson's 5th place finish at 9-over was one shot better than Dougherty, Verplank, and Kelly, just enough to secure 3rd place for Liz Farnsworth.

Congrats to the winners and we'll see you all at the British!

2nd round bloodbath; 6-way tie for 1st

2007-06-16T04:08:03.386-07:00

I turned away for just a bit, and lo and behold, half the pool missed the cut. This course got the best of the field on Friday, and it probably won't let up the rest of the weekend.

A veritable All-Star missed the cut at Oakmont: Phil, Retief, Scott, Sergio, Donald, Harrington, Stenson, Cink. And the list goes on and on.

In our pool, 6 teams are tied for 1st, but given the bogey buffet out there, it's still anyone's ballgame. Among the leaders are Jon Piebenga ('06 British champ) and John Tien (2-time major winner). Lurking just behind are Zak Stassi ('06 Masters champ), J Brooke ('06 PGA champ) and another Tien team! (Before you crown his ass, John Tien also had a team in which all 4 players missed the cut - a feat in and of itself.)

Keep your eyes on the TV, because the leaderboard can change in an instant.

Good luck!

Wide open field; Dougherty is 1st Rd Leader

2007-06-14T23:07:19.817-07:00

The first day at Oakmont didn't have the carnage everyone was expecting. In general, the scores were high, but no huge disappointments yet. Sure, Sergio carded a 79, but is anyone surprised by that anymore? There was a lot of pre-tourney chatter surrounding Pampling, so he seemed to be a great value play at $1. He promptly rewarded us with an 81, proving that you generally get what you pay for.

David Toms was looking like your 1ST ROUND LEADER, but struggled coming home. Justin Rose started quickly (again) and then gave a few back on the back. Instead, the 60 front-running entries got Nick Dougherty.

A little info on Dougherty:
- ranked #116 in the world
- ESPN profile page has no info on him
- appeared in 6 majors ('05 US Open - T53, missed 5 cuts)
- never shot better than 72 in any major

None of this bodes well, to be sure. Layer on the fact that he's English (no European player has won a major since '99, and none has won the U.S. Open since England's Tony Jacklin in 1970), and you'd have to say the odds are stacked against him.

If that wasn't enough for the young Brit, he had to take it one step further.

"I think the course is — I hate saying it — easy," Dougherty said.

In the past four U.S. Opens, eight men have owned or shared the lead after 18 holes. Only two have led after 36 holes. None led after 72. And with Tiger, Ogilvy, Vijay, Furyk and many others lurking just behind, it's hard to be optimistic.

Before you start questioning the value of 1ST ROUND LEADER, in the last 5 pools, a 4sum with the 1ST ROUND LEADER has finished in the money three times. In fact, last year's Open pool was won by a 1ST ROUND-led team owned by Lance Catarozoli.

As you might expect, the day 1 leaderboard is tightly packed, led by '06 PGA champ, J Brooke and 2-time major winner, John Tien. Of course, in the last 5 pools, 10 4sums have owned or shared the lead after 18 holes. Only two have led after 36 holes. None led after 72.

Thanks for playing and good luck!
