|The Arnold Palmer Picks Are Up!|
|Lots of unique picks seems to be a trend this year...|
The organized picks and round one standings for this week's
tournament are on the site. We chose 30 golfers. Henrik was
the favorite, 2 players short of unanimous. Rory was right on
his heels, chosen 10 times. Adam is right there too, on 9
teams. Keegan and John Holmes were picked 7 times each. Jason
Day and Rickie Fowler show up on 6 teams each. Five of us like Koepka but can't pronounce his name right. Comeback boy Sean
O'Hair got the nod 4 times. No treys this week, but English,
Poulter, Horschel, Streelman and late W/D Bubba are all deuces.
For the third tournament in a row, uniques are in the majority. Sixteen of them this week. Chris, Dave and Mike D. lead with 3 each. Dan and Mike M. have 2 each. Bill, Jordie and I check in with one each. The other five players went with favorites, just like Arnie always was.
Almost 25% of the players decided to put brackets into our NCAA pool. Do the math and that's not very many. I'm still going to give updates on that because, well, it matters. Maybe we can get a better response with the Women's tournament. I set up a pool for that lesbian-fest, same everything as the Men... group name is Rule 20-6, password is Tiger, $5 per entry. The link to the group is here. The deadline to fill out your Women's bracket is noon tomorrow. I will be very disappointed if we get more entries in that than the Men. I'll give updates on the Women's pool too, even though, well, it doesn't matter.
Golf is what really matters here and we once again have a wide open set of picks. The usual hot-playing favorites and then lots of gambling on who's going to find it for a week in Orlando. 21 of 30 are uniques or deuces and 5 golfers were chosen by more than half of us. The King has everything ready for us and because it's Arnie's place you know it's gonna be a good one...
Let's get it on!
