What else is there to say about Dustin Johnson’s performance

last weekend at THE NORTHERN TRUST other than ‘WOW’?

Thirty under par…3-0. Won by 11. Shot a 60 and that was almost

disappointing in that he had more than enough chances on the

back 9 to break into the 50s.

We’re now down to the Top 70 in the FedEx Cup race for the

semifinal tournament at Olympia Fields just south of Chicago. The

fun part this weekend is going to be the cut from 70 to 30…and

which major names will be left out?

I’m not sure how and why…but NONE of us are picking DJ

coming off that historic performance? Is that a mistake?

Once again the rules for our challenge:

Each week, Harry, Parlay Kid, Producer Michael and I will get a

simulated $200 to bet…$100 on golfers to win that week’s

tournament and another $100 to be spread amongst top-5, top-

10, top-20, and other prop bets. We’ll track the progress to see

who does the best and whether we can produce positive ROIs.

Here are this week’s plays for The BMW Championship:
