We are not recommending any picks in this week's Canadian Open. After the first day of play, that seems to have been the correct choice.
Last week our picks placed 32,792 place out of 208,085. This paid $6 on our $4 entry fee. Here is a quick review of last week's players and results.
We had some great picks and no players missed the cut. The goal each week is to avoid having a player get after 2 rounds. Overall I rate the picks a solid B+.
Each week through Draft Kings you can play in their fantasy golf contests. Using a quantitative process I call Quantitative Sports Gambling (QSG).
The first pick was Justin Rose who has now made 18 of 18 cuts has 13 top tens. His cost was $10,200 and he scored 87.50 points.
The second pick was Brooks Koepka who has now made 10 of 10 cuts and has 3 top tens including the recent win at The U.S. Open. His cost was $9,200 and he produced 66 points.
The third pick was Tiger Woods who has had made 11 of 13 cuts and has 4 top tens. His cost is $8,900 and scored 80.50. For a while on last Sunday, Tiger held the lead. He is getting there and we love the comeback story. Watch for him to win at Firestone.
The fourth pick was Henrik Stenson who has now made 14 of 15 cuts and has 7 top tens. His cost is $8,200 and he made 56.50 points.
The fifth pick was Kevin Na who has made 14 of 18 cuts and has 4 top tens including a recent win at The Greenbriar. He was a steal at $7,000 and came up with 47.50 points.
The sleeper pick was Si Woo Kim who has made 17 of 23 cuts and has 3 top tens. He remains a bargain at $6,500 and did not miss a second cut in a row. He was the low man of these picks at 43.
We noted not to spend the money for Jordan Spieth as his putter has been awful of late and sure enough he played awful on Sunday putting in one of his worst rounds in recent memory.
