|The Barclays Picks Are Up!|
|Playoff Fever, Catch It!|
The picks and round one standings for this week's tournament
are on the site. We chose 25 golfers. Rory is the favorite,
chosen by all but one of us. Rickie is runner-up again, picked
by 12 players. Adam and Sergio show up on 10 teams each. Loopy
Jim got the nod 9 times. Phil, Jason and Henrik are each on 6
teams. Five of us like Sneeedeker. Rose and Walker are
4-baggers. Jay's boy, Bill, is the lone trey. Keegan, Gray-me
and young Jordan are the deuces for the week.
We came up with 10 uniques. Shelley and Mike M. lead with 2 each. Brett, Dan, Bill, Chris and both Daves have one each. The other 7 of us towed the line and couldn't pull out a playoff unique. Randy and Mike D. have the same 7 golfers.
As a rule I don't put pictures in these emails, but we have a worthy exception this week. Dave A. and Elise Q. had their first child a week ago Tuesday, Emerson Arthur. You will see his picture at the end of this email. I guess he's wearing his first golfing outfit, I know Dave has a hat just like that. I'm sure Dave is already working on his grip. Emerson was good enough to come on a pool off-week. Since he is the first child born to 2 members of this Pool (one current and one former), I am making Emerson the first Junior Rule 20-6 Golf Pool member. Once he's able to point at the computer screen I'm sure Dave will be teaching him his tricks on winning majors. Congratulations to both Elise and Dave.
We certainly do have some favorites. Five are pretty clear, then a nice mix of almost-favorites, and enough uniques, deuces and treys to keep it interesting. I am enjoying golf a lot more without what's-his-name. I have the volume off today, so I don't know if they are still mentioning him every other sentence. I'm sure ESPN will lead their story with the fact he is not there, if they report on the tournament at all. Actually I don't know how any ESPN "reporter" can say anything with all that SEC and NFL semen in their mouths. I guess they're just true professionals. Aw hell, even without whatchamacallhim and being in New Jersey, this is still gonna be a damn good one...
Let's get it on!
