Yes, I was going to pick him but his schedule seemed weird and I got cold feet. He must be playing more than it looks like, right?
Yeah, I'm guessing he's just not planned it out, but read quotes that he wants to play in the Fedexcup so he's got to be planning on playing a bunch. It's not always clear with the top players, either, but you've got history to go by with them.

I came really close on going with Punam in this round.   He is like the AAAA masher.  Guy just owned the web.com tour, but has not been able to establish a foothold on the PGA tour,   I think it is safe to say he will probably play as much as they let him

Hard to nail down this guy's schedule, but I'm going to go with MICHAEL PUTNAM
 
He was going to be my pick, I think it is a safe pick this late in the 7th round.  Guy absolutely destroyed the web.com tour.

Not even going to think about it, he was next on my board, I think he has slid due to a poor start but plays a ton of tournaments should get me 15+ cuts and hopefully grinds out a few top 10's in easier fields. NICHOLAS THOMPSON. 
 
I have two guys left that I want in the 8th round I don't care which guy, but hope one makes it back to me.

Just checked in and saw that it's my turn.  Also saw that most of my planned picks were taken this morning, but still have one remaining:
 
TREVOR IMMELMAN

I know nothing about either. They are in the top 100 on the list I am using. But that list could be worthless. Either way I am 500,000 time happier with my team this year than I was last year. I don't care if I finish last, at least I don't have a team of guys who will be worth watching.

There are actually quite a few that I like for my last pick.  Hope they stay around for the post-Memorial pickup...
 
I'm going to go with a guy who is a great putter and should be entering his prime, but has had a couple of lost years recently:  AARON BADDELEY

Well I just realized after searching that the guy I was so surprised slipped to me and was ready to take was taken in the fourth round.  I will have my pick up shortly.

Had a few spare minutes this afternoon and read through last year's draft thread.  All I can say is that we've gotten a lot smarter this year ...

I think I am next or almost next. I'm about to get on a plane, and if there's wifi I will pick onboard. Otherwise, it'll be a few hours, but I'll pick as soon as I get to the hotel.

That sounds like a name from Key & Peele's East/West College Bowl draft sketch.

I was.  My draft last year was tragic.
 
You said, "WE'VE," gotten smarter. WE haven't. Maybe you have, but I certainly haven't. That said, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that my team this year will outscore my disastrous team from last year. I know. I'm really taking a shot with that call.

I do think we as a group have gotten smarter about the draft.   Or maybe we're all just using similar sources for our research, because there appears to be a lot more consistency in terms of how we're evaluating talent.

I do feel like I'm using a better list. Last year, my final 4 picks scored a total of 2 points(estimate). And my first pick scored about 3 points.(estimate) So I'm already ahead, so, I take it back, you can speak for me. I am brilliant this year, only if you measure brilliance against my level of idiocy last year.

And I *still* didn't finish in last place.
