The field this week is one of the worst ones that you’ll see all year. So we won’t be playing much this week for that reason, plus we’re not a big fan of the pricing as well. We’ll be sticking to some of the guys we’ve been playing for most of the fall season, plus adding guys that seem to be in form and fit the tee to green game you need here. And now for our regular shitty cut and paste of our preview before we get to the nitty gritty.

This year, the former Mcgladrey Classic will be played on two courses. The 18-hole ” Seaside” course at the Sea Island Golf Club, 7,005 yards of golf from the championship tees for a par of 70 and the ‘Plantation Course’, Par 72 of just over 7000 yards. Both courses are played on fast Bermuda grass.They are true ocean tracks nestled at the southern tip of the island, both courses feature many of the characteristics you’d expect from a links course – including majestic ocean vistas, tidal creeks, dunes and salt marshes. Also, after the Friday cut, the tournament moves exclusively to the Seaside course.

The key to success at these courses? Accuracy. Distance off the tee has been a useless skill over the years. Some golfers have been able to overcome inaccuracy off the tee to post high finishes, but 70% of the players inside the top 10, consistently hit it straight for the week. It’s hard to predict who will have a hot putter, so we’ll concentrate on players with good form, high GIR, solid short iron play and above average putters on tour. We like the short game this week. 

Now for the breakdown.

THE CORE

Joaquin Niemann 100% – He’s not as hot as he was during the early part of his 2018 campaign on tour, but he’s still making cuts and that gives him a  punchers chance. He seems to play better on courses where straight hitting is needed so that bodes well for this youngster here. 15th sgtg and we think he can pop at any time. He was a a value pick to us in this spot.

Brian Gay 100% – He’s cheap and playing very consistent cut making golf. With two top 4’s in 6 starts at this course, he was impossible to pass up. He’ll be highly owned in our opinion.

Bill Haas 75% – He seems to have refound his game again, and if so, he should have a salary near the top. But until he proves it over the long term, we’ll get a discount on him. He was 2nd over this terrain once before and we wouldn’t be shocked to see him win this thing.

WAVE 2

Ryan Armour 50% – Even in years when he wasn’t playing well, Armour still made the cut at this tournament. His last year has been a coming out party for this 42 year, and he kinda feels like Jason Bohn from a few years ago now. We’ll ride his resurgence at course and weak field like these until his magic is gone.

Luke List 50% – Hopefully the missed cut last week scares people away from him as he’s been 13th at this course beofre. he’s now a much better player and he has as good as shot as anyone to win here.

Bud Cauley 50% – We think he’s fully back from his accident and ready to turn heads this years once again. 6th in sgtg and we’re sticking with him.

Sam Ryder 50% – With a 5th in sgtg so far this year, combined with a 22nd in putting, we’ll finally jump on this hot hand.
