The Tour heads off to New Orleans this week for the Zurich Classic. TPC Louisiana is a beast measuring a bulky 7,425 yds. when stretched out. The greens are tough and undulating, therefore, proximity to the hole is a solid stat this week.

 

 Good luck to all!!

I was looking at long iron stats and at strikers stats as you posted this last night I agree that DA,DD and long iron play will be a key stat this week. BOL

If they offer a line on John Peterson (NCAA Champ) from LSU playing on a sponsors exemption I will be hammering the dog garbage on the opposite side. He MC'ed at the event I was at. I wasnt impressed at all. His attitude is terrible and really he was a prick. He felt he was better than the rest of us playing for the 200k purse. 

Not that I played great but beat him5 or 6 shots thru 2 days.

I wonder if the books appreciate the heads up we give them every week BEFORE they put their lines out on who we are looking at and the reasons why..

Wow NW...that's impressive! When and where was this at?

They probably won't have any lines for him, but I will for sure be on the lookout for them.

I really thought Kelly Kraft would do well last week, but he MC'd and got beat by Spieth. Do you know much about him. SMU golfer I believe....

Do you honestly think they look at our crap? And if they did, base the lines off what we think?

I don't know man....

They look AJ I honestly feel that a research guy from every book follows the threads as to what people are posting and saying as too if it makes a difference?? It can't possibly help unless we are throwing out false info and tricking the person. If they are watching they must be getting a laugh anyway...

It's not like every golf publication and the golf channel don't beat us to the punch anyway but I bet they shade the players that are mentioned by many as who they are looking at.

Ya, your probably right. They got some DOUCHEBAG at the books looking at what we like and shading the lines. That's probably why when we talk about hammering a guy the next round...the line comes out and he's like -175 or some stupid number like that. Hmmm, so maybe we need to start our own code words to throw them off....

Well the lines just came out and I did notice only a couple of dinkers matched against strikers almost every matchup seems to be strikers against strikers.Similar stats for da,dd,long approach etc. I may have found some plays but I'll wait a little while and see what boils down my only play so far is 
              Couch-130/Summerhays 1st rd H2H 
and that based on striking,dd,da and putting

Look at his approach stats from 220 to 175 & in. He is right up there top 10 he ranks 33 in driving distance to Summerhays 139 and has a better putting stokes gained average, in almost every category he gets the check ...to easy... so I must be missing something here. Current form...edge couch... Last year Summerhays MC 74/76 to Couch 51 71,69,73,73 not a huge edge there but an edge non the less.. 

Anyway looks to me that if they missed at all it was here.  -130 is probably the right number anyway....

 I like your thoughts on the long iron play Blue

Looking at the par 3 yardage  and a few lengthy par 4's I think the 200-225 stat should be looked at for guys that rank high and also rank low.
