    Colin Morikawa – 5
    Tyrrell Hatton - 4
    Daniel Berger – 4
    Abraham Ancer - 3

    Winning score - minus 9
    Leaders are Day and Cauley at -5. Looks like anything at 3-under or better is a pretty good score for the day.

    Early results:
    John Rahm - not teed off yet
    Brooks Koepka - 4 under thru 17
    Colin Morikawa - 1 under thru 17
    Tyrrell Hatton - 1 over thru 17
    Daniel Berger - 3 under thru 18
    Abraham Ancer - 3 under thru 14

    I've got 3 guys really in the running with my big gun yet to tee off. Feeling good so far!
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    Possibly having buyer’s remorse on my buyer’s remorse from yesterday. Dropped Schauffele, Hovland, and Day for DJ and Finau. Still, DJ (-1), Morikawa (-1), Woods (-2), Finau (-3), and Koepka (-4) all in the hunt, with Cantlay (+3) struggling.

    Finau is pretty much aleays a pretty good pick, even though he has failed to come through in the crunch. He still finishes in the good money pretty often.

    Abraham Ancer (3)
    Brendan Todd (2)

    Winning score (-11)
    This team is looking strong after day 1 with the co-leader and 3 guys in second! Tremendous value from Todd and Scheffler. (not going to ding you for the "Shelden Williams" style typo on Brendon Todd)

    Projections after day 1:

    Tbyers11 $4,246,365
    Mr. Synellinden $3,012,615
    elvis14 $2,986,365
    accfanfrom1970 $1,659,915
    duketaylor $1,094,665
    killerleft $1,075,415
    mkirsh $1,068,415

    Tripping William $996,665
    JasonEvans $989,815

    Rich $938,915
    Bob Green $865,600
    sagegrouse $853,200
    Rogue $275,700

    Interestingly CDu's original team would be comfortably in second place. But you can't win the tournament on Thursday - there is plenty of golf left.

    Judge Smalls disappointed Team Bushwood didn't get any love. Not a bad day, but no one's been cut yet...

    That's because you posted at a time that was inconvenient for me to read it...

    Sorry about the error - it will be corrected in tonight's update

    Yep. Hoping that my itch doesn't wind up biting me. So far, not so good. At least Hovland had a poor day today and has dropped back, but Day/Hovland/Schauffele certainly positioned better combined than DJ/Finau. We'll see how Day/Schauffele/DJ/Finau do today. Fingers crossed, but I certainly can't rule out that I'm a big dummy.

    Brendon Todd (got the spelling correct here. Thanks for the heads up. I detest people who type Shelden and Reddick) had been playing really well and seemed like a solid pick at 2 points. I had literally never heard of Scheffler but he was picked as a sleeper in an article I read and seemed like a 2 pointer that no one else was picking. So I could get a boost if he did well. Hope they stay in contention thru in the weekend.

    I’m hosed. Of my two differentiators, one MC’d (Im) and one nearly did (Kiz).

    And I’m just now seeing how Fowler MC’d (by a shot), nearly whiffing a 6-inch tap-in that was for bogey on 15. Ouuuuuuuuccccccchhhhh!

    All six members of Team CDu v2.0 made the cut. But Team CDu v1.0 (which would have Schauffele, Hovland, and Day in place of DJ and Finau) would have had 7 making the cut and two (instead of just one) at -6. Still a lot of golf to be played, but it is certainly looking like I made the wrong call. Oh well.

    Well, DJ and Finau stepped it up today to make me feel a bit better about my change of heart.

    DJ (T1)
    Koepka (T4)
    Morikawa (T4)
    Finau (T7)
    Cantlay (T21)
    Woods (T59)

    Hopefully Sunday breaks well too!

    I have no reason to make this up - Earlier today I was typing a response to your first post that said - "Don't sleep on DJ - I just have a feeling ..."

    And I got distracted and never posted it. But I was thinking it. I just had a feeling he was going to have a huge day. One of the things that is becoming clear is that distance is a huge factor on this course. And it makes sense - the rough is so penal and it is much easier to hit short irons out of the rough and get the ball on the green. DJ, Champ, Koepka, DeChambeau, Finau, Wolff, Scheffler - all big hitters - are in the hunt with a real chance to win.

    Yeah, the rough has been absolutely brutal. I think it was Grillo yesterday who was in the rough like 140 yds out, and hit it... about 50 yds... leaving him still in the rough. And watching guys try to muscle 6- and 7-irons out has been a sight to see.
