|The Texas Open Picks Are Up!|
|In Texas, if a player gets DQ'd, they get the chair...|
The alphabetized picks and round one standings for this week's
event are on the site. We chose 25 golfers. Young Texan Jordan
Spieth is the favorite and a unanimous pick for the 2nd time
this year. James Walker, Texas Ranger, shows up in the #2 spot,
chosen 11 times. D.J. got 10 votes. Smilin' Matt is on 9
teams. Ryan Palmer got the nod 8 times. Six of us said yea to
Na and Loopy Jim. Z.J was picked 6 times. Harry English is the
lone four-bagger. No treys, but Italian Francesco Molinari,
German Martin Kaymer, and wanna-be Texan Phil Mickelson are
Once again we have more uniques than multiple picks, 13 to 12 this week. Chris is the leader with 3. Dan and Randy have 2 each. Jordie, Steve, Dave, Hugh, and both Mikes have one each. Joe, Brian, Bill and I missed out on any gun-slingin', cattle-ropin', bible-beltin', death penalty lovin' Texas uniques.
Bill and I picked the same 7 golfers, so our chances for uniques were pretty much the same as the Cowboys winning the Super Bowl with Tony Romo.
These picks look a lot like most of the tournaments so far this year... four or five favorites, a few mid-range picks then a bunch of uniques. We've had some close tournaments so far, so maybe this spread of picks works. Somebody is due to get lucky and have a unique winner, so a blowout wouldn't surprise me. But despite this tournament being held in the anus of the U.S., I think it's gonna be a perty gosh darn tootin' good one...
Let's get it on!
