Cink shot 70 in the final round to win by 4 shots. It was his second win since September of 2020 and, at 47 years old, gives his a real career boost. Morikawa was my guy and he had a disappointing Sunday with an early bogey on the first par 5. He couldn’t seem to sink any putts and fell to a T7 finish. Guess I made a bad choice to put 5 units on him to beat Cink yesterday morning. Fortunately, Stuard came through.
Overall, your Hack dropped 4.6 units over the week, bringing the YTD total to down 22.2 units overall.
It was a tough day at Harbour Town for Your Hack’s matchup bets and a tough day at the Hootie for your Hack’s golf game (more on that when I wrap-up the Hootie). I went 0-2-1 on my match bets and am now down for the tournament after a good two opening days.
Final Round Plays: I think Cink falters today and Morikawa finally gets hot with his putter. I’m putting 2.5 units on Colin to come back and win this things at +500. I’m also taking him to bet Cink by at least 1/2 shot for 5 units at -155. My last play today is betting that Zalatoris is gassed. I’m taking Stuard at +155 for 5 units.
It’s also Day 2 of the 2021 Hootie at Cripple Creek. We have a 9:15 shotgun start for the 2-man team better ball competition. Let’s go . . . .
63-63 from Stewart Cink! Wow – it really must help to have your son on the bag.
Your Hack was right about Cam Smith yesterday as he shot even and fell back, losing his match to Conners. Your Hack went 2-1-0 yesterday – very nice.
Today, I’m taking Si Woo (-115) over Kuchar; Cam Davis (+110) over Streelman, and Glover (-115) over Thompson. 2 units each wager.
Also, I’m playing the first round of the Hootie this morning. Wish your Hack luck.
Cam Smith (and his mullet) goes berserk on Harbour Town shooting 9 under gaining almost 7 shots on and around the green! He’s almost 80th in approach play so he can’t keep this up right? I’m taking Conners (-120) over Smith today for 2 units.
We went 1-1-0 on yesterdays matches. In addition to the above, I’m adding An (+160) over Kirk and Morikawa (+135) over Cantlay/Garcia.
I don’t see a lot of value in outrights after Round 1, but I’m taking a flyer on Zalatoris at +2800.
I’m playing golf today so won’t be able to watch much live. Good luck all.
We are back at Harbour Town Golf Links for this week’s PGA Tour stop and I love this Pete Dye masterpiece.
Your Hack’s betting card is a little light this morning because, for the first time this year, I missed the 7 AM cut-off to get in my outright bets. With two (2) days of tournament play earlier this week, I wasn’t able to do my research until last night and I didn’t get all my bets in. I’ll have to live bet any outrights over the next couple of days if I see anything I like. I was planning to be on Morikawa, Si Woo Kim, Kisner, Kizzire, Nesmith and Fitzpatrick and then add in some longer odds on Herman at 400-1, but that’s what happens some time.
I’ve got Morikawa this week for my One and Done pick – I’m currently 26th of 147 players in my OAD league as Jordan’s top 5 finish at the Masters moved me up again. I really like his tee-to-green game at Harbour Town.
