ONLY 9 Days to go…

WEATHER:
Scottsdale this week: Low: 17, High 35.

ITINERARY:

I spoke with Commissioner Sledz this morning… His official detailed itinerary will be sent out in the next day or two.. but the one on the FTBO site has been updated with most of the info you need.

LINK TO ITINERARY

INJURY UPDATE/16th MAN: See scouting report below.

SCOUTING REPORTS: The Hunt for the Gold Jacket:

Las Vegas odds makers have been keeping an eye on the FTBO players trying to ensure that handicaps are as accurate as possible heading into the trip. 

Scouting reports will be released as information comes available.

Here is a scouting report:

Scouting report – Chris Szysky (23 HCP)

Disco was spotted at Valley Ridge on the weekend… And although his score was what was expected (He shot 92… pretty close to his handicap) His style struck fear into many…He was the exact opposite of his normal self… He was HORRIBLE off the tee and lights out around the green???) 

This prompted 2 questions? 

  1. Who is this guy?
  2. Will he pull it all together and claim the Gold Jacket, or will he leave it all behind and play worse that Dyer?

Odds of Winning: 10-1

Scouting Report – Dan Pilling. (16 HCP)

Pils has played twice this season and is already in mid-season form.  His fluid swing and steely resolve have powered him to scores that are very average for him…He fired a 92 (Elbow Valley) and 88 at Valley Ridge including a picture perfect chip in from 65 yds out to birdie the 2nd hole… before promptly double bogeying the 3rd hole. He is shooting close to his Handicap.
Odds of Winning: 7-1

Scouting Report – Shawn Kirwan (20 HCP)

The only Rookie in the field has REALLY made it tough on himself. 
First he agreed to room with Jaret Sledz (which means he is likely to have to eat trial mix, not drink booze and do morning workouts), then he broke his ankle and looked like he would miss the trip entirely. But after a trip to the doctor it was determined that he IS able to play because he isn’t a very good player in the first place, and golfing with an air cast on really won’t affect his performance.

Despite all the factors working against him, he has one advantage… Nobody has seen him play.

Odds of Winning: ???

Scouting Reports will continue to filter in from the scouts as we get closer to the event. 

FTBO RULE OF THE DAY:

Hit until you are happy on the 1st tee… but after that there are NO MULLIGANS… Everything counts.
(Note: If you aren’t happy after hitting a sleeve of balls… pick the one that makes you the happiest!)

YEEEE-HA!
