It was a quiet weekend on the OAD front for our crew at the Shriners Open, as I was the only member that earned a payday with Joaquin Niemann's 13th place result in Vegas. Unfortunately, chipping away at Joe's lead isn't going to get the job done, and the prospects continue to look bleaker and bleaker for Josh and I with each passing event.
We do have a substantial purse up for grabs during our second league of the Vegas stretch, but the time to make a move will have to be now. With a field barely over 70 players, options are slightly more condensed to choose from because of what has transpired early in the season, and it will be interesting to see where the guys decide to go for one of the bigger tournaments left on the schedule.Editor's Note: Golf is back!

One and Done Selections - CJ Cup @ Shadow Creek
Joe Nicely - Matthew Wolff
Alternate - Louis Oosthuizen
Ok, so I'm coming off my first complete and total misfire in awhile, as Harris English missed the cut last week at the Shriners. The player that I should have rolled with last week was Matthew Wolff, a young man whose game looked absolutely electric at TPC Summerlin.
Perhaps I'm a week late, but I'm not letting this kid pass me by again. If I go down for a second time in Vegas (this is Spencer's home court after all, so it's possible that he tampered with Harris English's equipment last week), it's gonna be swinging with Matty Wolff.
He's ridiculously long off the tee, which will come in handy on this 7,500-plus yard Shadow Creek masterpiece, but the 21-year-old has also been firing on all cylinders with his irons and has gained over six strokes on Approach in his last two starts. In addition to the ball striking, Wolff's touch around the greens continues to evolve, and he stands sixth in this elite field in SG: ATG over the last 12 rounds.
This might not be the most creative pick I've ever made in this contest, but it is one that I'm making with a truckload of conviction. I'm rolling the dice on Wolff and betting that he leaves Sin City as the week's big winner.

Spencer Aguiar - Tyrrell Hatton
Alternate - Scottie Scheffler
Man, what I would give to cancel the Tour Championship from this contest. Not only did it result in Joe earning a 1.665 million dollar "victory" with Xander Schauffele, but it also took away Rory McIlroy from my player pool. If you have the Irishman left at your disposal, it will have to be here or the Masters, and I would lean towards this being the ideal spot to use your big gun.
Sadly, that option is off the table for me, and it has resulted in a last-minute switch-up that I didn't anticipate making. These have never historically gone well in recent memory, but I've decided to deploy Tyrrell Hatton over Scottie Scheffler. I have to assume Joe is going to rollout Matthew Wolff, and it just seemed to be more logical of a decision to take the guy coming into the event off of a win than playing the guy who just missed the cut.
Hatton has won three of his last 13 worldwide events, and while this is clearly a swing for the fence and hope for the best situation, I feel as if there may be a better location to play Scheffler at down the stretch. Hatton's starts on tour might be limited, and it probably doesn't make sense for me to leave the 10th-ranked player in the world on my board when I am down nearly three million dollars.

Josh Bennett - Bubba Watson
Alternate - Gary Woodland
After Rickie’s slip up last week I’m pretty sure there’s no chance I can catch Joe now, but we’re sure going to try! Going to need some weird things to happen, so hopefully that starts with Bubba winning another golf tournament.
We’ve learned that Bubba is only good on “Bubba tracks”, but he’s actually been playing good all over the place recently which is a good sign heading into a place where they haven’t played an event before. The course will favor a long hitter, and with Bubba’s ability to move the ball in both directions he should be able to take some angles down the fairways that others won’t be able to.
He’s also great with longer irons in his hands which will benefit him on a course where half the holes will require a shot over 175 yards to the green. His game around the green is not good, but if he can just have an above average week near and on the greens we will see his name near the top of the leaderboard. Hopefully it’s at the very top of the leaderboard, I need it.
