 Turkish Open Preview
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 16:15

OVERVIEW

Third straight year at Carya GC and we’re starting to get some solid data at the resort course. As with most resort courses, accuracy isn’t necessarily a key stat to target as the course will be setup more difficult on the greens and players will be able to hit decent approach shots from short-ish rough. Speaking of the greens, they’re big, undulating and fast. Hitting to the appropriate side of the fairway off the tee is probably an underrated part of the off the tee game here than anything. If there’s any defense that this course has, it’s the water hazards which come into play on seven holes.

 Shriners Open Preview
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, October 30, 2018 - 12:04

OVERVIEW Last year’s edition of the Shriners saw the DFS world’s adult child finally break through to collect his first win in a low scoring event due to windy conditions. As long as the wind doesn’t kick up again, I think the course plays more like it has in the past.

 Sanderson Farms Preview - 10/24
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 - 18:10

OVERVIEW

DraftKings wants more rake from us, so they’re running some pretty garbage contests for the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, MS this week.Ball striking reigns supreme at the CC of JM so we’ll be targeting players who do that at an high success rate this week. For the few that actually play in these contests, I can see the ownership gravitating towards the newer darlings of DFS – Sungjae Im, Cameron Champ and Norman Xiong (he’s actually really cheap this week in a really weak field).

OVERVIEW

After back-to-back no cut events, we get…another no cut event! The PGA Tour heads to China to finish up the Asian swing as the Sheshan Golf Club hosts the WGC HSBC Champions. The field continues to get stronger as the swing heads to a finish and culminates here as we get to see DJ, Rory, Rose, Brooks, the duo known as Moli-Wood, Rahm, Finau and Matsuyama.

 Valderrama Masters
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - 15:42

OVERVIEW

Sergio Garcia gets double duty this week as host and defending champion as we return to his first tournament. Valderrama is no stranger to hosting strong competitions as it previously hosted the Volvo Masters, The Ryder Cup, a WGC and The Open de Espana (Spanish Open). That being said, these players have plenty of history at this course and we should be able to glean something from that.

 CJ Cup Preview
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 - 13:34

OVERVIEW

Year two at Korea’s Maui and another no cut event means we get to see all of our players play all four days. The course was designed to create a Scottish Highlands look but looks more like an American course in a Scottish atmosphere (see also: “American links” courses). It was built under the backdrop of Mount Halla at 600 meters (which translates to almost 2000 feet) so the ball will be traveling further than usual.

 CIMB Classic Preview - 10/9
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 19:15

Last week was the first event of the new season, this week we get the first no-cut event of the season. 66 players make up the field at this week’s CIMB Classic at The TPC Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia in the first of three events in Asia. Defending champions have fared well here in the past as both Justin Thomas & Ryan Moore successfully defended their previous year’s titles, but players who have finishes in the Top 5 have also repeated strong performances here year after year (See Gary Woodland, Kevin Na)

 British Masters Preview
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 - 19:01

OVERVIEW

The newest venue to host the British Masters presents a challenging flat links course with hard and fast fairways and equally fast greens which are protected by deep bunkers. Walton Heath is a course where a sharp tee to green game will be rewarded and playing the ball down is often the play due to the wind. Many players have seen the course in US Open sectional qualifying rounds, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to see some of our (Euro regulars) familiar names at the top of the leaderboard come Sunday.
