The PGA TOUR takes a break this week as the Tokyo Olympics are on center stage. Some of the best players in the world made the jaunt to Japan to compete for medals…Morikawa, JT, Rory, Hideki to name a few. It’ll be fun to watch but the unknowns about the course and true passion from the players will make this difficult. Rory didn’t seem overly enthusiastic about making the trip while a guy like Patrick Reed relishes the opportunity to represent his country. The card will be lighter than normal but will still provide us a lot of fun for the next 4 days….We hope!
SEASON LONG TOTAL: + $3,824.25
We’ve had an awesome year so far and hope to keep it moving positive throughout the Summer..….We’ve hit outrights on both Harris English wins (2), Si Woo Kim, Brooks Koepka, Daniel Berger, Collin Morikawa twice, and Justin Thomas. Also hit First Round Leader plays on Kokrak, Fitzpatrick, Keegan, Spieth, and Vegas. 8 outrights and 5 FRL is pretty cool, especially when the picks are free!
Paul Casey ($25 to win ($375): Pretty short number here but maybe he follows up Rosie’s Gold Metal with one of his own….
Sungjae Im ($25 to win $725): We all know the pressure on Sungjae….I’ll root for him.
Cameron Smith ($25 to win $825): My favorite play…
Justin Thomas ($25 to win $25): He’s got to Top-10 in this field, right?
Shane Lowry ($25 to win $50): Easy $$$ here.
Corey Connors ($25 to win $50): Really think Canada sneaks into a metal….Hope it’s Corey with a bronze
Marc Leishman ($25 to win $62): Why not?
First Round Leader:
Joaquin Niemann ($25 to win $500): Love this play on a guy who can go low anytime!
Tommy Fleetwood ($25 to win $500): Gotta bet him early in the week before he fades Sunday
Guido Migliozzi ($25 to win $875): Little dart on Guido
