The tourney isn’t until Friday this week and that gives us an extra day to flip flop on our picks and most likely not win any money because we overthink things sometimes. This week we’re going to try and take low owned players as the field is quite small and we hate having duplicate teams. But first, here’s our shitty cut and paste preview.

The TPC Boston is a Par 71, 7214 test of golf……… or lack there of. What?! Yes. The winning score here is volatile, but for the most part, you’re going to need tons of birdies. So if you’re picking golfers that don’t make tons of birdies, have a nice time in Loserville, Population You. For the most part, in the history of this tournament, the winners have been ‘A’ List Golfers. Olin Browne was the biggest anomaly, followed by Charley Hoffman, then Chris Kirk. Everyone else has either won a Major or been Top 10 in the world at some point. So what are we looking for here? This course has 3 Par 5’s, two of them are super short and players will have wedges into them for their 2nd shots. The 3rd Par 5 is 600 yards and can be reached by the really long bombers, which seems to be everyone these days. If you’re not scoring -8 on these holes over the 4 days, you’ve got a handicap to overcome. Par 5 Scoring is essential. The rest of the holes are a mixture of short and long Par 3’s and 4’s. Two of the Par 4’s are drivable. One at 360, the other at a paltry 298 yards. Over half your scoring should come on these 5 holes just mentioned. So what are the other ways to beat this course? Players can actually just play their game and succeed. The accurate guys will hit the fairway and greens in two. The long guys can miss the fairways and get away with it,  as they’ll have short irons into the greens. But is there anything that links them all? As whole, and there are a bunch of anomalies, but as a whole, Ballstriking and Strokes Gained Tee To Green. Sergio Garcia, Jason Dufner, Henrik Stenson, Jim Furyk, John Senden, Kevin Stadler Vijay Singh, Geoff Ogilvy, Amongst other big names.

This course is all about opportunity. The more birdie opportunities you have the better, and if you’re not having tons of birdie opps than you better be making all your putts. 

Now for the breakdown

THE CORE

Jason Kokrak 100% – He’s a cheap salary who is making cuts lately and has played well at this course in the past with an 8th and a 16th. He affords us the opportunity to grab an extra big name as he only has a 25% – 30% chance of missing this cut.

Tiger Woods 100% – We hope people jump off him this week but even though he hasn’t been a dominant force at this course in the past, he’s still been quite solid wth two 11th’s and a 3rd.

Tommy Fleetwood 75% – We just thought he was too cheap for the season he’s been having. 

Adam Hadwin 50% – A super cheap option that makes cuts and has made both of his cuts at this tournament with a high of 13th.

Ryan Moore 50% – We’ve never taken him on the right weeks but his price was super cheap and he’s had some nice finishes here before.
