When I saw that Parlay Kid took Collin Morikawa last week, with

ZERO notable links golf experience, to win The Open

Championship, I thought he was nuts. You’d think I would’ve

learned by now.

As impressive a season Morikawa, Rahm, or anyone else is

having ON the course, Parlay Kid is doing amazing things when it

comes to his betting prowess OFF the course.

SEVEN wins and a net gain of more than $6,800! And you

wonder why he’s considered an EXPERT!?

Congratulations to him, Collin, and those who bet on Morikawa

last week for your handsome rewards.

Now it’s time for a tournament that made me want to throw

something and break it last year, the 3M Open. I was all in on

Tony Finau to win and he was SO close before predictably fading

in the final round while Michael Thompson did just the opposite.

If you wonder why I’m not picking Finau this week in the

Minnesota-based tournament, now you know why. I am big on

another underdog of sorts though whose play has ticked up lately.

Seems like he’s due for a win sooner or later…

Then again, if I’m not sharing winners with Parlay Kid, do I really

know what I’m doing??

Once again the rules: each picker will get a simulated $200 to bet;

$100 of which will be on win bets and another $100 on top-5, top-


10, and top-20 bets only. The kicker this time is that the money

can only be spent on a maximum of three golfers in each

category. Picking winners has never been so difficult (except for

Parlay Kid).

Here are this week’s plays for the 3M Open:
