Wow - just looked at the field. This one is better than strong. i volunteered a couple of years ago and did the electronic scoring on the course. all the vets got the a-list players but i scored for Mackenzie Hughes and Sung Kang. it was pretty cool .... even though i asked far too many questions. "hey, are you going to go for it on the 15th". luckily it was only the practice rounds.They've had decent fields but not too many "strong" fields. Good news is when they have an east coast or Metro area Open they will get their impact players for the most part. Definitely the bad calendar spot hurts the consistency. It's important for them to get "name" winners to attract their friends and bring more respect.
I still remember touring campus during my orientation overnight. There was Andy working out alone with the hammer.Big thanks to Travelers VP and UConn grad and athlete (hammer throw) Andy Bessette. Andy qualified for the Moscow Olympics in 1980 but the U.S. boycotted that year.
The BY kiss of death curse is strong.If I'm playing fantasy, I'm taking Morikawa every week for the next decade or so. He's going to spend the next 10 years cashing 6 digit checks week in and week out. I don't know if his putting is good enough to win a bunch right now, but he is a green hitting monster. Out of the three youngins who showed up last year or so- Hovlind, Morikawa and Wolff, I am most bullish on Morikawa. By a lot.
