The Daily Spin – DraftKings Fantasy Golf World Championship Recap

As most of you know who followed us on Twitter and on the scoreboard over the weekend, Jeff and I made the trek to Boston last week to take part in the first ever, Fantasy Golf World Championship. The Deutsche Bank Championship event was held last week at TPC Boston, the second leg of the FedEx Cup playoffs and featured the Top 100 golfers that had accumulated points throughout the season. Typically, the course has played on the easier side with the winning score being close to -20, but that seems to have changed a bit over the last two years now as the winning score for the weekend came in at only -15 with only three players managing to shoot better than -8 for the tournament. But before I recap the event, there was the journey to get to Boston which proved to be almost as much of a rollercoaster as the event itself.

When Jeff and I first started Fantasy Golf Insider, we did it with the idea that in order to be the best you have to beat the best. If we are not competing against the biggest names in DFS golf week in and week out, it would certainly make any claims of running a top site pretty ridiculous. It is one thing to claim results, and another thing to actually put your money behind your picks and to put yourself on display each week in big events for everyone to actually see how you perform. I would not right putting out my column each week if I did not stand by the selections that I make. Now, that does not mean that the picks alone are the key to your success. What we offer here is a gameplan to help you with your research and how to come up with the best strategy each week for approaching particular tournaments. Building winning lineups is certainly a big key, but so is contest selection, building the right style of lineup, bankroll management and knowing when to play more aggressively and when to be a bit more conservative. Jeff and I feel like we have developed a strong enough system to help folks just starting out, or even those players who have more experience, to find ways to take advantage of small edges that are out there each week. But in order to gain the respect of the industry as a whole and to feel like we could consider ourselves to be a credible source of information for our subscribers, we knew it would be important to get ourselves on the biggest of stages, which meant that we knew we needed to try to qualify for the Fantasy Golf World Championship when the contest was announced early this spring.

The first thing I would tell you all as regular week to week players is that bankroll management and playing in live event qualifiers does not go hand in hand. As most of the contests come with a price tag of $1000 per entry for a 40 entry event, it is not something you walk into thinking you will be able to make money by entering every week. The payout structure is also exceptionally top heavy. Fourth place pays $1000, third pays $1500 and second pays $2500. First place wins the trip which includes 5 nights at the Intercontinental Hotel in Boston, the costs for your flight, tickets for all four days at the event and amazing accommodations throughout the weekend. It is an amazing event to attend and without the pressure of the contest itself surrounding the trip, it would be an incredible way to take in a golf tournament.

However, qualifying is where the difficulty begins. Although a 40 player field does not sound that bad, each week the qualifiers were filled with a field of incredibly talented DFS players which included: maxdalary, brettfavre444, CSURAM88, AlSmizzle, jetblackx and Tommy G are just a few of the names that competed week in and week out for a seat in this contest. This proved to be both an educational and challenging experience for both of us. As we entered our first few lineups in the spring, we did so playing lineups that were very similar to those that we had been using in the 370 entry, $300 weekly GPP. After a few weeks of struggles, we soon realized that there are certain trends within this size of game that are worth taking a closer look at. First, ownership trends are tremendously important. Each week, we examined how certain players were owned from the $3 GPPs all the way up to the weekly qualifier. What we noticed immediately was that the big dollar players tended to show an even higher tendency than average players towards choosing certain favored players each week. Where a player like Brooks Koepka might be owned by 25% of players in a mid level GPP, he might be owned by up to 45% or more of players in the qualifier. Why is this so important? Well, to put it simply, one of the best strategies that a player can employ in this situation is to avoid the most popular players each week.

One of the techniques that Jeff and I both profess to you each week is to start off by looking at the players and prices when they are released each week and to go through and predict how highly each player will be owned for the week. Sure, some players will seem obvious in terms of popularity, but the more you perform this exercise, the better of a feel you will get in terms of who will be most likely to be the highest owned players. What you will find is that more often than not, the highest owned players are not the most expensive to put onto your roster. What you figure out is that it is typically a player who has been running hot that may also have a reasonable history at the event of making cuts, or a young rookie that can score a lot of points in a hurry who is on a roll and having a lot of top finishes. It is so difficult to avoid these players. You feel drawn to them like the Death Star pulling you in with a tractor beam. And yet, throughout the season, theses players destroyed one qualifier lineup after another. Whether it was Daniel Berger, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, JB Holmes, Kevin Chappell or any other of the many popular plays on a given week, very few rosters made it through the cut intact on a weekly basis. I would estimate that on average, maybe 6-7 teams per week were able to get six players through the cut.

What did this mean to us in terms of how we competed? It forced us to treat the qualifier almost like a cash game, putting a premium on getting six players through the cut and limiting our exposure to higher owned players that could potentially end up being value traps. Again, I have to reiterate, this is really difficult to do as a player. I would almost recommend trying to remove any players from the field that you believe could potentially be owned by greater than 30% of the field. The upside to owning these players is limited for the most part. You typically will not get burned unless these player win the tournament or place near the top of the field. A great example of this was when Kevin Chappell started to play really well in the middle of the summer. He had a terrible stretch early in the year where he missed six of seven cuts and became a pariah among fantasy owners. It was later revealed that he had battled through injuries during those months. However, following those seven events, he went on a tear, making seven straight cuts and averaging a 30th place finish during that stretch. Coming into the RBC Canadian Open, with a price of just $7300, he was one of the most popular picks of the week. Ownership for Chappell soared to near 45% that week in the qualifier and sure enough, he went on to miss the cut and largely scared away owners for the rest of the season.

On the surface, Kevin Chappell at $7300 was a very reasonable pick if looking at just the statistics. His form was solid, he had finished well in previous efforts at the course and his price was well below the salary average for the week. My first thought was that he was an easy recommendation for the week. However, after taking a longer look and listening to other fantasy golf writers and enthusiasts, it became abundantly clear he would be extremely popular that week. I made it a point to avoid him for the most part and ended up leaving him off my list of recommendations for the week. My thought process played out in gauging where he could potentially finish and how I would be affected if I stayed away from him. I figured his average finish that week would be between 25th-50th place and that he would score roughly 60-75 points 50% of the time. I figured that 20% of the time, he would finish in the Top 25 and scored 70-85 points on average. 10% of the time, I figured he would make the cut, but finish very low and score around 50-55 points and 20% of the time, he would miss the cut and score around 25 points. When I totaled it all up, I projected him to be in the range of 60-65 points. When you look at it from this perspective, it makes fading him seem pretty easy as replacing him with an equivalent value is not that difficult and presents owners a great opportunity to take advantage of those times when he does miss the cut.

If a replacement player has roughly the same potential as a highly owned player, but missing the cut will hurt a disproportionate number of owners, a good general rule is to steer clear. In smaller GPPs where there are only a small number of owners who tend to be well informed, this is a powerful strategy if utilized consistently. The highest owned players do not miss the cut every time, but it happens often enough to give you a reasonable edge. A good trick to use in these types of contests is to actually remove those players names after doing your ownership predictions just to avoid temptation. It sounds a little silly, but just try it a few times to help yourself out. Again, this is not for every GPP that you enter, but specifically for those smaller events with just a few dozen entrants, although I find that it can be useful when I play multiple lineups in the weekly $300 GPP as I work to eliminate too much overlap in the lineups that I build.

Initially, things started off a bit rough in the qualifiers. Jeff and I each had a lot of Friday afternoon heartbreak where things started off well enough and then deteriorated Friday with a player collapsing on the cut line. Between JB Holmes, Russell Henley, Andy Sullivan, Brendan Steele and Ryan Palmer among others, we dealt with a lot of 36th hole collapses that ruined weekends and left me on the floor of my office sending off rage texts.

After a couple of months of close calls, we finally had a breakthrough at the Crowne Plaza Championship over Memorial Day Weekend. We had enjoyed a few nice successes early in the season, but could not catch a break in the qualifier. Going into the event, Jeff mentioned to me that I would be rather shocked when I saw his team for the week. He was headed out of town with family for the weekend and would be out of cell phone range so I would get to sweat it out on my own. As his team moved up and into 1st place through Saturday, I decided to skip the sweat on Sunday and not look at the standings until the end of the day. He truly had picked a team that was not heavily owned by others and it worked perfectly. A few key players missed the cut that weekend and Jeff cruised to a win in the qualifier and a win in the $300 GPP. This provided another good lesson in that we always enter our qualifier team in the lower denominated tournaments just in case we managed to hit the perfect lineup where we could sweep through the lower buy in GPPs as well.

Once we qualified for the FGWC, we wanted to be aggressive and win multiple seats for the event to try to give ourselves the best possible chance of winning the event. We stepped up our efforts at trying to build more contrarian style lineups to counter the largely chalky play of our opponents. We knew that using this strategy would mean a lot of weeks where we missed completely when the favorites prevailed, but we also knew that there would be a few opportunities where enough highly owned players failed so that a boring, contrarian type of team could push through to the top.

Jeff won our second seat at The Open Championship in July. The key element came down to how the weather played out over the weekend. Most folks looked at the event and could see trouble brewing on Friday afternoon. The consensus was that Thursday morning tee times should be avoided in order to miss the bad worst of the weather on Friday afternoon. However, what most failed to consider was that just before tee times on Thursday, the weather looked perfect to start the day. As weather patterns around that part of Scotland can change rather dramatically, Jeff theorized that going with a group of golfers that would start the tournament with good weather could put him in a position of strength over competitors. As the weather did deteriorate on Thursday and was poor all day Friday, Jeff pushed six players through the cut and once again had a runaway win as he was the only owner to roster Zach Johnson for the event.

Once we had won our two seats, we immediately began to plan out our strategy for the championship event. We had to look at the alternatives for how our teams would be composed. With two teams in the mix, we wanted to take two distinct approaches to the event. What I have found over the last couple of years is that no matter how much I think a tournament will play out in a certain way, inevitably, there are curveballs that throw things off. The FedEx Cup this season has played out in just this manner. Most folks within the industry focused on scoring in the opening round at The Barclays and sure enough, the event played much tougher than expected and scoring proved to be much lower than the one previous time that the event was held at that course due in part to changes in the weather and how the course was set up for this season’s event.

Going into the Deutsche Bank Championship, we needed to analyze how aggressively to play our lineups. With 98 golfers entering the event and the 70 players, plus ties getting through the cut, it looked like it was going to be important to be more aggressive in our approach. If only 23 or 24 players missed the cut, it was our guess that many owners would be able to get six golfers through the cut. Although our instincts were to try to be aggressive, we decided to split our teams with one being a little more aggressive and the other being conservative and playing like a cash game team. We really wanted to make sure that one team made it through the second round intact.

Before the prices even came out, Jeff and I dug into the course and statistics. We wanted to explore every possibility for the week although we knew very early most of the players that we would choose. When the prices came out, we each started making lineups before listening to all of the noise from other sites and sources. Our first instincts usually tend to be the best and our first lineup was one that I arrived at within a few minutes of looking at the prices, but with one small change. I chose Jason Day, Tony Finau, Justin Thomas, Robert Streb, Kevin Kisner and Jason Bohn. We ended up swapping Thomas out for Henley on that team and moving Thomas to the other lineup. Jason Day seemed like a very strong choice as he entered the event having won 3 of his previous 4 events. We suspected that he would be heavily owned, but also worried that he was about to go on a Tiger Woods type of run and win event after event down the stretch. We did not feel like we were giving up much with the softer pricing in starting a team with Day at the top given the consistency of the others in the lineup. Jason Bohn had made the cut there in all five starts, Streb entered the event playing terrific golf and with a strong finish at the event the year before and Tony Finau was notching one Top 25 finish after another going back to the spring. Henley, although he had missed the cut the week prior, had demonstrated his abilities during the season in missing only three cuts and finishing in 2nd place at TPC Boston the year prior. Fianlly, Kevin Kisner, outside of his struggles at longer links style courses, entered playing very well and despite his season long statistics being a little skewed, we were confident that this was a course he could handle.

The second team proved to be a challenge. Jeff was adamant about not having players overlap within the lineups so he wanted 12 different players to use for our rosters. I did not worry as much about overlap as I felt certain that we could pick a couple of players that would definitely not miss the cut…which proved to be wrong. Fortunately, we did end up choosing two totally distinct teams. We looked at using Spieth to start the second team, but ultimately decided on a more balanced approach. When we heard about Bubba Watson’s back trouble and him pulling out of the Pro Am event, we decided to eliminate him from the mix. In an event like this, a withdrawal would be devastating (insert foreshadowing) so we really did not want to have any risk of losing a player once the event started.

We built the second team around two stalwarts in Jim Furyk and Matt Kuchar. We were certain they would not win the event, but knew they would keep it competitive and had Top 10 potential. Our next pick was Brooks Koepka. We deliberated fading him, but thought that his missed cut the previous week might deter owners from going all in with him. We also felt like with such a small number of golfers missing the cut that this could not possibly be an event where Brooks did not make it through the weekend. As a huge talent to score at will, we just did not think we could afford to miss out on Brooks if he could put up yet another high finish with the threat to score over one hundred points. Our next pick was Paul Casey, a golfer who tends to run hot and cold, but who had shown recent signs of strength. His statistics checked out well with the course and we suspected that the 8000-9000 range of prices would be neglected so we felt like a strong performance from Casey could set our team apart from others, but still be very safe to make the cut. The last two players were Justin Thomas and Danny Lee. Both players are young, but full of potential and entered the event playing well and also had the ability to score a lot of points regardless of where they finished in the standings.

With that, it was time to enjoy Boston for a few hours before beginning our four day sweat. Our trip started by meeting a couple of folks that have been really key to FGI in helping us to grow this year. One of my favorite parts of FGI has been all of the great people we have had a chance to meet this past year. Daniel Wirth has been one of our most enthusiastic subscribers since the start of the year. When I first started writing my column, I never really knew how many people were actually taking the time to read it each week. Daniel was one of the first to get really excited each week on Wednesday mornings awaiting The Daily Spin. If I did not have it out early that morning, I could expect a few DMs to check on my progress. He talked up my column, retweeted it to others and started interacting with many of our other members. It meant enough to us so that we decided to invite him out to show our appreciation for his enthusiasm and for helping us without even asking, to promote our site.

Daniel’s story is really amazing as he started the year with just a couple hundred dollars in his bankroll and has built it up into the thousands now through applying the ideas that we teach here with regard to strategy, contest selection and bankroll management. It takes real discipline to execute this approach each week and he has done it throughout the season so it was a real pleasure to have him along for the ride. He was a bit quiet just soaking it all in the first day, but opened up as the trip went on.

Roger Casey, on the other hand, came through the door talking and never really slowed down the whole weekend. Where Jeff and I are always a bit pessimistic (The Legion of Gloom), Roger is a model of enthusiasm. He does not quite believe in our ability to put a hex on players, but he is getting closer after seeing it in action last week. If Roger talked a lot, his pants over the weekend were even louder as he was dressed to compete with Billy Horschel for style points. His energy kept the group in good spirits and his wallet kept me well fed as I cashed in on my Jason Bohn bet by making sure I enjoyed some tasty king crab legs. Roger has been great to have on our team this year as he puts out a top notch column for Fantasy Aces each week and also spends a lot of time with me brainstorming ideas on theory and strategy each week.

DraftKings really put on a great event for us. Thursday night, they catered a party for us at the bar in the hotel and kept the tab open until the bar closed down. We had the chance to meet a lot of the folks who were responsible for putting on the event including Jon Aguiar and Tori Pereira. Tori was responsible for all of the little touches in putting together our chalet at the course and arranging for any of the little details that could help to improve the experience of all the qualifiers and their guests. Every event should have a Tori to be there to make things perfect.

We met a lot of the players that we had been competing against over the last few months. Absolutbronx had the ultimate week planned out as he was participating in the FGWC over Labor Day Weekend and then following that up with a week in Vegas for Opening Sunday of the NFL season. He nearly convinced us to join him if it weren’t for the fact that I’d more than likely find my clothes strewn across the front lawn if I hit Boston and then topped it off with a shot of Vegas. We met Packfan990, who to our delight was not, in fact, a Packer fan but an NC State supporter. We were really excited as both of those competitors were also subscribers and Packfan had two seats of his own for the week.

We met Jetblackx, a former college basketball player turned portfolio manger and DFS golf star. Brandon, over at The Fantasy Golf thinks he is the best player in dfs golf right now. He was quiet and reserved, but did open up when engaged about golf and dfs strategy. We figured coming into the tournament that he would be one of the biggest threats to win it. David Jayne (DJ), was attending as AlSmizzle’s trusted golf representative for the weekend. Having played with DJ in a number of contests, combined with the fact that he had two seats, made him another strong favorite in the competition. We enjoyed visiting with DJ as he had a lot of interesting stories and inside information on things that were going on with players…fun TMZ types of stories. I’ve read some of his work for Al and knew that he would come into the event prepared as he understand the game and also knows how to model out the players and course to help him in evaluating the players each week. We also met JLUDEOBV, a 27 year-old professional poker player from Minnesota originally and now living down in southern Florida since he is smarter than us and managed to escape the winters before getting tied down to this place for decades to come. We did not know much about him other than that he had qualified in one of the final weeks before the event and had managed to hit Davis Love III the week he jumped up and won at the Wyndham.

The tournament viewing experience left us spoiled forever in terms of attending golf in person. DraftKings set up a chalet for us on the 16th hole with complimentary food and drinks all day. We had club seats overlooking the 18th hole that we could move to at any point in the day. We also had access to two other club seating areas around the 17th hole. As if that was not enough, walking with the players proved to be much easier than back at the PGA Championship where there was no shade, concessions were not readily available and the holes were set such that it was difficult to get very close to many of the greens without wading through huge crowds. TPC Boston allowed for us to follow any player or group without issue and get about as close as possible.

We started our day watching a little bit of everything at the course, catching a bit of Jason Day’s round and a lot of action between the 16th-18th holes. After watching Tony Finau struggle through the 17th hole, I let Jeff take a little breather to walk on his own for a bit and grabbed Roger and Daniel to go follow Brandt Snedeker, Charley Hoffman and Brooks Koepka. We figured Brooks would be good for some entertainment value regardless of how he played so we caught up with his group on the 7th hole and followed the rollercoaster for the next two days. After knocking in a birdie on the 12th hole, Koepka stood at -2 and looked to be in good shape. We were in great spirits walking next to the fairway on 13 when an errant tee shot nearly smoked us near the trees by the cart path.

We knew that the shot came from Brooks but figured he would take his medicine, punch back out to the fairway and do his best to get up and down. Unfortunately, he chose to attempt and aggressive shot, hit it into a tree about 30 yards in front of him and had the ball drop straight back down into the rough. Bogey. -1. After hitting an approach shot into the bunker on 14, he managed to only hit it about six feet in getting out and mismanaged his way to a double bogey. +1. Bogeys on 16 and 18 rounded out the day and left him at +3 going into the second round.

Unfortunately, we had trouble from a couple of other players as well. Jason Bohn started his day with a double bogey and flamed out the rest of his round and Tony Finau could not keep his tee shots in the fairway and then missed a couple of easy putts to get himself into trouble right away. Fortunately, for us, both Finau and Bohn were owned by over 40% of the field so we could see a potential path to the front of the pack if enough highly owned players missed the cut…and Brooks pulled through for us the next day.

We picked up with the same group the next day and Brooks entered the last eight holes having gained back one stroke and needed to simply maintain his score the rest of the day to make the cut. However, as you know, it turned into a train wreck for the rest of the day. After a ridiculous double bogey on the Par 5, second hole, where he slammed his wedge against his bag after rolling a shot into the marsh, he followed it on the next hole with a bogey after missing a five foot par putt. He gained a shot back on the 4th hole and saved par on the 5th before the wheels came off the wagon on the 6th hole. A poor approach shot left him with a 5-6 foot par putt. When he rolled it past the hole, Jeff fell to the ground, I threw my hands up in disbelief and walked off and Roger and Daniel both let out fairly audible groans. As I looked back, Brooks blew his tap in bogey putt, and it looked like a hitman put the final bullet into Jeff as he convulsed in frustration one last time. Roger informed us later that Brooks’s family was nearby us when we put on our theatrical display. Whoops.

I kept walking until I found a tree to lay under in the shade for a bit as I thought that our chances to win the tournament had come to an early end. I took a little while collecting my thoughts and thinking back on everything that we had done to qualify for the event. It had been a great year and we had achieved so much, but come up just short. I thought I would just relax and enjoy the day for a bit and take some time in clearing my head before tracking down the rest of the guys. Fortunately, just at that moment, Paulina Gretzky walked past me and I felt the life come surging back into me and lifted me back to my feet. I did not follow her, but chose to stare from a respectful distance. Dustin Johnson, Zach Johnson and Henrik Stenson were playing some pretty solid golf, but Paulina….not much else needs to be said. It’s certainly easy to see how DJ does not dwell on losing golf tournaments.

As I walked, I started to think about ownership levels for players and soon I realized that there were a lot of teams in trouble. As I found Jeff back in the chalet, we figured out that every team was going to have at least one player miss the cut. At that point, we just needed to get five through the cut to still have a fighting chance. Outside of Koepka, the rest of our secondary team held up well and we managed to get five of six through the cut. As we exchanged high fives from our club seats on the 18th hole and quietly cheered against several key players from other teams, we could see a real path to the top as the best team in front of us with five of six through the cut was only in front of us by six points.

Going into Sunday (Round 3), we needed a few things to happen to help our team move up in the standings. The first piece of the puzzle involved Rory McIlroy playing a below average round. With 32% of the field owning Rory and several teams in contention, a big day from him would hurt us. Naturally, we wanted to try to bring our bad luck cloud over to Rory for the morning and started our day by following him on the front nine holes. His tee to green game looked great, but he just could not hit those pesky 10-15 foot putts to gain any ground and lipped out a few putts in the first few holes we observed.

And as we walked along the fairway of the 7th hole, the ultimate in bad beats struck. As we walked, Jeff looked down to check scores on his phone and I heard him utter the words, ‘We’re dead’. I figured maybe a key player on another team had knocked in a big shot or something along those lines and then he let me know the bad news; Paul Casey had withdrawn from the tournament with a sore back. As if withdrawals were not rare enough before an event, they are even more rare after the cut and particularly so when a player is in decent position going into the third round.

We sat down on a couple of boulders and let the crowds pass. In moments like that, neither of us ever feel compelled to any ridiculous questions. I tweeted out the injury update to our followers and looked at my phone hoping that somehow the result would magically change. After about 10 minutes, I walked off on my own back to the chalet on the 16th hole to fully assess the damage and to try to figure out what could be salvaged. In running the numbers, if all went perfectly, it looked like we might be able to finish as high as 4th place. We watched our team perform admirably throughout the remainder of the day and held our own, finishing the day in 5th place.

Word spread fairly quickly about what had happened to our team that day. Nearly every competitor offered their condolences although I am sure there must have been a few smiles to see a strong competitor get knocked off without much more than a whimper. I thought it was really classy to hear from people in the DFS community who heard about the Casey WD. Al Zeidenfeld personally reached out through Twitter and Tommy G let us know he felt sick for us as he had suffered through a similar bad beat at the first live baseball final event for DraftKings when a watermain broke at Coors Field and flooded the field cancelling a game and knocking out his key players. That cost him a title along with an additional $970,000. These types of bad breaks are a brutal part of the game and yet, they keep it interesting and provide additional levels of excitement. This will be a story that I will be telling for the rest of my life.

By this point, a clear cut winner had emerged in the championship event. Jared Ludemann (JLUDEOBV) took a commanding lead heading into the final round on the backs of scrub performers Shawn Stefani and Hudson Swafford, two players that I have given much love to throughout the season, but was too afraid to take the risk on for the tournament. At the top, he used a stack of McIlroy and Stenson. While Stenson did not hold on for the win, his second place finish combined with Rory shooting a final round of -5 gave him an overwhelming lead. Brettfavre444, who elected not to show up to the event at all, made a late charge, but finished 15 points behind the leader.

I chose not to stick around for the big check presentation at the end. It’s bad enough now to have to see the commercials of those who have won big checks being played on an endless loop on ESPN and throughout most football games now. Jared is a worthy champion and his approach was smart in terms of the risks he took, the diversification of certain portions of his lineup and his analysis of which top players would be good anchors to build around. In running the math in my head, as I have now done many times, we would have needed Paul Casey to get to -8 in order to overtake his team. When he withdrew he stood at Even par so he would have needed to shoot pretty well the last two rounds. One thing I know for certain, it will be on my mind every day until we make it back again next year for another shot at the crown.

Despite the loss, the event was an amazing time and completed a very successful season for us here at Fantasy Golf Insider. I never anticipated making so many great connections with people this year. Getting the chance to meet Roger and Daniel was amazing and then over the weekend, but those were not the only folks we ran into out there. John Grady stopped by and hung out with us on Monday which was a lot of fun, even if Jeff and I were not in the best mood that day. Al Hunter stopped by the chalet yelling ‘MYZTERIOUZLY!!!!’ and chatted up some golf with us. And Matt Hooper was in the chalet next to ours and talked up a few of his favorite rookie players that had served him well this season. I am so thankful for all of you out there that have been a part of the journey with us this year. You have made this so much fun and I can promise you that we will continue to work hard at improving the site in the months ahead. We have at least 3-5 projects in the works right now that are going to blow you away in 2016.

Thank you for your continued loyalty and interaction. It’s been a lot of fun so far and there are big things coming in the season ahead!

All the best,
