Fantasy Golf: The RBC Canadian Open Preview

Home » Fantasy Golf: The RBC Canadian Open Preview
I need to permit LIV Golf a while to percolate and totally start its three 12 months implosion sequence earlier than giving it the complete remedy however these preliminary press conferences are simply, nicely, wow. I do not know the way else to explain them.  

For many who aren’t following this because it develops (and I’d sort of rely myself in that group), here is the gist. The LIV Golf Worldwide Sequence is a league led by former standout participant Greg Norman who has turned out to be an excellent greater asshole than we initially thought . . . and that is fairly an achievement. Let’s simply say that Larry Mize did us all an enormous favor by pre-eradicating him from any historic Masters dialog. After all the Shark competed for the inexperienced jacket extra than simply that when and he took care of the remaining. 

Who knew Alan Shipnuck might
be the brand new Richard Engel?

LIV Golf has stoked controversy as a result of the astronomical sum of money it is paying the gamers is reportedly being funded by Saudi Arabian sources. Many have taken difficulty with this as a result of the Saudis have (1) a poor report on human rights, discrimination and fundamental justice (in that they do not actually imagine in any of that stuff), (2) supplied a lot of the 9/11 terrorists, and (3) just lately dismembered an American journalist. That is all pretty frequent information . . . in all probability even for many distinguished skilled golfers who seem to stay a hermetically sealed existence on the subject of the information of the day.*

     
Again to the participant press conferences. The headliners like Dustin Johnson, Graeme McDowell and Talor Gooch have predictably been requested if they’ve any points getting paid by the dangerous guys. Here’s what we’ve realized from their solutions:
  • They’re unequivocally NOT politicians even when they’re lastly going to receives a commission like them.
  • The first motive they determined to hitch LIV Golf is to “develop the sport” out of a deeply held sense of athletic altruism so all of those questions on the place the cash comes from are sort of irrelevant once you actually give it some thought. As a result of the cash itself is irrelevant. 
  • Some gamers have acknowledged that they just like the shotgun* begin format as a result of who would not pump their fist and go “YES!” after they show-up for a event pondering that they will tee off on the primary gap, solely to find they will be beginning on the 231 yard par 3 14th?  
Graeme McDowell who is likely to be probably the most underrated least likable participant of his technology went as far as to say (and I’m paraphrasing right here) . . . “hey if the Saudis need to pay us a fuck ton of cash to make them look higher, then who’re we as recreation rising non-politicians to move judgment and switch them down?” He did that inside seconds of acknowledging that the murdering and dismembering of a journalist was not cool. At a press convention. Stuffed with journalists. I shit you not. 

Here is just a little tip for the LIV dudes from somebody with expertise in each private {and professional} harm management. When everybody already is aware of that you just’re doing it for the cash, simply say “I am doing it for the cash.” It is okay. All of us do issues we’re not happy with for the cash. Hell, I as soon as tried to get a liquor license within the title of a consumer’s 15 12 months previous son on account of the very fact the man could not get one himself as a result of his convicted felon standing. I’d’ve truly pulled it off if the fucking child hadn’t shaved on the day of the listening to. 

It is okay. Actually. Simply come out and say it. You will really feel a lot better. And normally, it is not as if we’ll such as you any much less.  

TWEET OF THE WEEK


For those who do not assume I am copying the record on this tweet and texting it to my associates whereas claiming it as my very own, then you do not know me. Or perhaps you do as a result of I actually haven’t any associates who would perceive why this record is humorous.


GOLF ANALYSIS

The loyal upstanding members of the PGA Tour might be at St. George’s Golf and Nation Membership this week for the primary time since 2010 when Carl Pettersson shot 60-67 on the weekend to beat Dean Wilson by a stroke. Luke Donald will need to have mistaken it for a significant as he shot a closing spherical 66 to backdoor a third place end. The excellent news is that I did not have to arrange a historic efficiency chart as a result of Donald, Charley Hoffman and John Huston is likely to be the one guys within the subject who performed in 2010. The dangerous information is that does not go away me a lot to jot down about. However that by no means stopped me earlier than. 

The sector this 12 months is stable on the high with the likes of Scottie Scheffler, Justin Thomas and Rory McIlroy. We then get a slight dip all the way down to Shane Lowry, Cameron Smith and Sam Burns earlier than issues go south in a rush and also you’re fortunately paying $8,000+ for the likes of Mackenzie Hughes and Brendon Todd. 

You need to like Lowry this week. I imply the course could not sound extra British and he is been enjoying nice in 2022 with three high fives in his final 9 begins. I like Rory for all the identical causes however I already burned him on the Arnold Palmer. I am additionally taking Tony Finau over Burns and Smith within the decide I’ll definitely remorse.  

From there your guesses are nearly as good as mine (which have not been superb currently). I went with a pair Canadians within the aforementioned Hughes together with Nick Taylor. Nobody might blame you for taking a flyer on Corey Conners or Adam Hadwin being the primary Canuck to win this factor since Pat Fletcher in 1954 who I am fairly positive additionally performed on the wing for the Maple Leafs.
