Key Stats

Accuracy off the Tee – Missing a handful of fairway here by only a few yards can end up racking up strokes quickly. Its not the longest of courses and even though it may be there for the taking for a bomber on a good driving day I would much rather invest my cash in 4 solid and hopefully faultless rounds.

Putting – Greens are gonna be quick and tricky, current confidence with the short stick can only but help give players this week a notable advantage.

Ball Striking – I’m looking towards accuracy and in particular great distance control, I would as most weeks rather have my players hitting greens and creating chances rather than grafting hard with their scrambling to avoid bogeys. Chances will be on offer this week but I very much doubt scoring will get out of control. Patience is the order at this venue so to accompany the ball striking stats I would also consider the nature and style of the player, leaning more towards the plodder.

Junkie Jargon

Ever catch yourself wondering what in the world the guys are talking about? The Junkie Jargon glossary lays it all out for you.

Rake

The portion or percentage of a player’s entry fee (or total prize pool) that goes to the sponsor/website for expenses/profits. This varies from site to site.

  • In a DraftKings $10 50/50 league the “rake” is 10%.
  • 30 entries X $10 = $300 prize pool
  • 15 Players Win $18 ($270)
  • DraftKings keeps $30 (10%)
