What a terrible field we have this week. Why is Phil Mickelson playing here? Same with Patrick Reed? Why aren’t they over in Europe right now? This is pretty much a fall event and anything can be expected. So yes, it’s a free for all. We’ll be going hard on a few guys and then playing single on the very few ticket we’re playing.

But here’s our shitty cut and paste of our preview for the week.

The Old White Course. measures at 7,274 yards and is only a Par 70. When looking for stats that correlate here, uhhhhhhh, well, it’s tough. Obviously Par 4 Scoring helps as it is a Par 70. Like every week, being a solid putter helps a lot. But what is the type of golfer we’re looking for? 

If you look into the stats at the players that seem to do well here, you’ll notice as a whole, they are Above Average in: Strokes Gained Tee To Green, All Around Ranking, Putting (Even Ted Potter Jr. was ranked 50th one year), and Par 4 Scoring. Also, they have all fluctuated with their proximity ratings. We will get back to that in a second though. Just wanted to point it out right now.

Now that we’ve labeled some stats that we’re looking for, let us also say this. The course doesn’t play very difficult, so finding a player in hot form will trump everything in our opinion. All tournaments come down to a putting contest, but on a course where the average GIR for the week is between 69%-70%, which means everyone is getting to the greens in two quite easily, dropping your putts on a consistent basis becomes an even bigger deal. Also, when everyone is hitting the greens in two, to make putts, it’s much easier if your proximity to the hole is much closer than others. So we will be paying close attention to those types of players as well this week.

Now for the breakdown.


David Lingmerth 100% – One of the few horses for courses here and he’s coming in hot.

Kevin Kisner 100% – Having a consistent year and fits the course manager type that we’re looking for. Has a handful of Top 10’s this year and plays well against weak fields.

Stewart Cink 100% – He’s cheap and he’s just playing solid golf. We like him to hit the greens and we just hope he makes some putts. That’s all we ask.

Gary Woodland 75% – He’s played well here in the past and he’s playing decent golf this yer. By no means is he setting the world on fire, but in this field, he’s a nice value to us.

Matt Jones 50% – His comeback is slowly progressing but he’s progressing. You can see the seeds. Hes got a biggy in him.

David Hearn 50% – A very solid history here and playing golf like he plays golf. Inconsistent with the ability to pop when he’s on. We’ll take the course history here and him being on an upswing if that even matters with him at all.
