|The Houston Open Picks Are Up!|
|What if we had to qualify for the Masters?...|
The picks and round one standings for
this week's tournament are on the site. We chose 30 golfers.
Youngsters Jordan Spieth and Jon Rahm are the favorites, chosen
13 times each. The Man in Orange made it on to 12 teams. Phil
and Henrik are on 10 teams each. Rose made the cut for 9 of
us. J.B. got the nod 7 times. Adam Scott shows up on 5 teams.
Russell Henley is a 4-bagger. Patrick Reed is the lone trey.
The deuces include Lovemark, Cabrera Bello, Hoffman, Walker,
Kuchar and Patrick Cantlay.
Fourteen unique picks. Oliver and Chris clearly lead with 5 each, but each of them only have 2 of those 5 playing. Jordie, Dave, Mike M. and Brian G. have one each. The remaining 10 of us found nothing unique in Houston.
The NCAA Tournament pool has been decided before the final 4. It came down to the UK/UNC Regional Final game. If Kentucky had won Dan would have won the pool. They didn't and Steve, who picked North Carolina to win, grabbed the glory and the cash.
After looking at the field list Monday I didn't think there would be a lot of different golfers chosen. We picked 24 who are teeing it up and 6 of those were picked by more than half of us. There are still 15 playing uniques, deuces or treys, so if the favorites don't come through someone could pull off a big win. But I think this one's going down to wire and despite being in the armpit of America, it's gonna be a damn good one...
Let's get it on!
