• Harry

By Eric Cohen

When you’re going up against the experts, sometimes you have to

overachieve to fit in. Going into last week’s Memorial Tournament, both

Parlay Kid and Harry were embarrassing me in this golf challenge. But I

changed my strategy and stumbled upon picking the winner, Jon Rahm. So

as you’ll see below, I’m right back in the thick of things and finally with a

positive ROI after four weeks!

I really have no idea how to handicap this week’s 3M Open considering the

lack of star power and only one year of course history. So I’ll save the big

betting for the next two weekends when we have big tournaments including

a WGC event and the PGA Championship!

Once again the rules for our challenge:

Each week, Harry, Parlay Kid, 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, and top-20 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 3M Open:
