SBS Tournament of Champions
Good start to the pool at the Tournament of Champions! My pick, Watson, would have scored well if it were the US Open. Only problem was that at Kapalua, you have to go low, so that left me cheering for McGirt on Sunday. Why? Because McGirt was not picked by anybody but he quickly fell out of second place after a double bogey at 10.
That left a two man show between Matsuyama and Thomas. Thomas doubled 15, leaving the door open for Matsuyama, who had a 10 footer on 16 to tie the lead. Hideki left it short and with a 1 shot lead on 17, Thomas knocked a 226 6 iron stiff. Sure it was down hill, the wind was with him and adrenaline was pumping… but a 145 lb. frame, hitting a 226 yard 6 iron? Incredible.
Here is a breakdown of earnings by pick:

Here is a breakdown of the picks this week. Kuchar, Vegas and Chappell will not play this week, forcing a few reserves to be used. 2 of the 4 people that picked Kuchar, do not have a reserve playing either. It will be interesting to see how the reserves unfold! I’ll be cheering on Russell Knox this week!
|Si Woo Kim||10|
|Charles Howell III||3|
|Billy Hurley III||1|
