This year we will be tracking each of our writers’ performances in our 100 person One And Done (OAD) pool. For those of you who do not know what a OAD pool is, it is a season long contest in which you select one golfer per week with the golfer’s earned money that week adding to your season total. Once you select a golfer, you cannot use him the rest of the year (so, no, you cannot pick DJ or Tiger every week).
Jake Mulholland: Dustin Johnson, 2nd-968K
Frank Laterza: Tony Finau, T4-404K
Kevin Walsh: Rory McIlroy, T33-58K
Sean Carney: Tiger Woods, T37, 45K
Mike McNamara: Patrick Cantlay, T43-32K
Tony Kasper: Patrick Cantlay, T43-32K
Bear: Patrick Cantlay, T43-32K
Jack Corrigan: Jordan Spieth, T71-19K
-Rouge was oh so close with DJ! Morikawa just played the better golf late on Sunday.
-Frank also gave it a head of a run with Finau, but he was couldn’t put it all together at the right time.
-Everyone else? Subpar.

Kevin Walsh: Brandt Snedeker — Keeping it simple this week and hoping history repeats itself. Brandt isn’t in his best form but neither am I. Hoping we can spark each other this week at a place Brandt loves to go low.
Tony Kasper: Kevin Kisner — To contend here you need to hit fairways, hit their irons well and make some putts. Few fit that description more than Kiz, who will look to continue the momentum Sunday at Harding with a strong performance this weekend.
Frank Laterza: TBD
Mike McNamara: Justin Rose — Looking at Justin Rose’s entire career, it is extremely rare for him to go an entire calendar year without a PGA TOUR win. He’s been one of the most consistent players of the last decade, and seems to always find a way into that winner’s circle. I know this year has been shortened, but Rosey is still winless and he wants to change that heading into the Playoffs. The putter looked great last week at Harding Park, and the ball-striking is on the uptick. Bring me life JR.
Bear: Jordan Spieth — He’s due.
Sean Carney: Webb Simpson — Going with Webb Simpson this week. Week after a major, actually a decently strong field. Simpson literally dominates this track. He’s been playing very good golf of late, and a lot of guys have used him. Think this is a no brainer for me. I think auto top 10, could win by 3 shots.
Jake Mulholland: Patrick Reed — Back to back top 10’s has me feeling pretty good about my current momentum heading into the final stretch. Hoping to crack the top 20 this week with another top 10 finish. DJ playing conservatively on Sunday crushed my soul. After watching him fire off 8 birdies on Saturday I thought there was a chance for him to get over the “second place in Majors” tag. At the beginning of the tourney I asked for him to go a few under par each day. A final round (-2) simply wasn’t enough. Congrats to Collin Morikawa who played perfect golf down the stretch. This week in Sedgefield we take on a moderate field with some big names like Koepka, Casey, Fleety, Kis, Spieth, and of course the Home team Mr. Webb Simpson. Taking Reed this week because he closed out well last week. He’ll take the positive momentum into the place where he won his first PGA tour event back in 2013. I’m thinking the fond memories and good form will carry him to a late start on Sunday.
Jack Corrigan: Justin Rose — I got sexy with Spieth I’ll admit it was a very big stretch but I feel confident in 🌹 this week. Putter was phenomenal last week, driver will be better here and rough isn’t anywhere near as bad. JR can eat this place up if he brings his B game. Seems to be in good form, let’s go low.
