|Mike M. Wins The Players Championship!|
|Two wins in a row and the 'TMC' title to boot...|
Sorry for the record lateness of this
email. I've been battling my latest case of Ebola, which I'm
pretty sure is a new hybrid of Ebola, Bubonic plague and
Typhoid, with a little Malaria and Rabies thrown in there. At
least that's what WebMD seems to come up with, based on my
symptoms. But 3 days in a NyQuil coma and I'm much better or at
least able to type again.
I'm sure everyone has checked the website by now... Mike M. won for the 2nd week in a row and the 3rd time this year. It was his record tying 5th cash of the Season. He beat out Randy by just under $20k. It was Randy's 2nd cash of the year. Mike D. managed 3rd place and his first 2017 cash, about $13k short of Randy. Oliver ended up 4th missing the money by around $197k. The top 3 players were the only ones who managed to get a pick in the top 10. Mike M. had T6 Adam Scott as a unique and Randy and Mike D. had T6 Francesco Molinari. Mike M. was the only one of the 3 to have all 7 golfers cash, which was the difference for him.
Mike M. won the Spring "TMC" running away. Chris hung on to 2nd. I snuck up from 4th to grab the final money spot. Andrew ended up on the bubble.
Mike M. has a near $1 million lead in the Spring Season race and will be tough to catch in the final Spring tournament. Brian T. is still 2nd, about $800 ahead of 3rd place Andrew. I am 4th, over $1.2 million out of the final payout position.
In about one week we will end the Spring Season in America's armpit, Fort Worth, Texas, at what is officially called the Dean and Deluca Invitational, but will be referred to in this Pool as the Colonial Invitational. It is being held, as it always has, at the Colonial Country Club. There will be much Ben Hogan history and lore, so brace yourselves.
Get those picks in on time.
