|The Deutsche Bank Picks Are Up!|
|I think we all conceded to Brian and went for one last win...|
The picks and round one standings are on the site. We chose
23 golfers. As should happen right now, Jason Day was a
unanimous favorite. All but one of us thought the Spieth boy
really hadn't lost his game. D.J. is on 10 teams. Former world
#1 Rory McIlroy was chosen 9 times. Justin Rose made the cut
for 8 of us. Seven players like Heni Stenson. The Bubba got
the nod 5 times. Hideki is a 4-bagger. Rickie, Louie O. and
Tony F. are treys. The deuces this week are Z.J. and Casey.
Ten unique picks for this final event. Chris and Dan lead with 2 each. Joe, Hugh, Randy, Jordie and Mike D. have one each. The other five of us were lacking a "Bawstan" unique. Since I got my picks in first, Steve copied my team.
These picks are a lot tighter than I expected. Usually in the last tournament of the year at least a couple guys are going all-in with 4 or more uniques. I think the top golfers are just playing too well right now, it's hard to pick against them. 23 is almost a quarter of the field; it would be like picking 36 or so in a full field event, sort of. These close teams will make for an exciting final tournament. I doubt the Year-Long pool changes much, but it could. The Season and certainly the "T.M.C." have potential for real excitement. Despite being in the Land of the Cheaters Who Always Get Away With It, this is gonna be a damn good finish...
Let's get it on!
