Past champions Mackenzie Hughes, Robert Streb, Austin Cook, Ben Crane, and Kevin Kisner will be looking to rekindle some old magic. Sebastian Munoz and Brendon Todd join Griffin as fall winners in the field in Georgia.

Justin Thomas, who made the Dell Technologies Championship his fifth win of 2016-17, joins FedExCup leader Jordan Spieth to headline a full 70-man lineup set to begin the FedExCup Playoffs’ second half.Six rookies remain alive in the FedExCup postseason, with Mackenzie Hughes and Xander Schauffele just outside the cutline to reach the finale at East Lake. All 12 members of the U.S. Presidents Cup team are entered, but only 10 from the International squad. Adam Scott and Branden Grace were eliminated in Boston.
While Spieth, Thomas and Johnson are locks for top-5 positions at East Lake, putting their FedExCup hopes into their own hands, the chase remains to learn who joins them. Hideki Matsuyama and Jon Rahm have inside track. The spotlight also falls on No. 30, where Bill Haas is on the bubble to advance. In each of the past two years, four men have played their way into the finale after starting the BMW outside the top 30. Phil Mickelson, who tied for sixth at TPC Boston, will become the all-time leader in FedExCup Playoff starts when he tees it up for his 41st postseason event. That breaks a tie with Bubba Watson, who didn’t advance from Boston.

Congratulations to user JB4times4 for winning our Scottish Open fantasy contest last week. First place took down 0.0171 bitcoins. We posted a short player pool with only a handful of the top players to choose from for the Scottish Open. Making the cut turned out to be difficult, the rosters that cashed had more than one cut player. Last week’s winning user jesscoin had a roster with only one cut player (which was best in the pool), but poor scores on the weekend from Bernd Wiesberger and Byeong-Hun An pulled the roster down to third place.
User slptransam won our John Deere Classic fantasy contest, by edging out user thecosmicshame by only 1 point. First place received 0.024225 bitcoins. Every player on the top two rosters made the cut, which provided the points that propelled them to the top of our leaderboard.
Congratulations to user nasnas for winning a recent pool at CoinRoster! nasnas picked Holy Helena, the right horse to win the Queen’s Plate this past weekend, and won 0.38855000 bitcoins worth approximately $971.375 at the time of writing.
CoinRoster has paid its largest Progressive Jackpot to user holeinone. This user was the only bet placed on Si Woo Kim to win the Players Championship. Kim went on to win the tournament, so a bet of only 0.001 made by holeinone won the entire pool and the progressive which totalled 0.68838289 bitcoins worth $1,260.02 USD at the time of writing.
This latest win shows how savvy users can find profit opportunities in our weekly golf pools. Each week CoinRoster will post a pool on who will win this week’s PGA Tour and LPGA Tour events. If there were no bets on the winning outcome, the entire pool minus a rake is carried over to the next week and is put up for grabs again. In the case of this large win, the progressive had rolled over for the past few weeks, and so the amount of the progressive jackpot became large.
This week the LPGA stops in Williamsburg Virginia for the Kingsmill Championship. This event is part of the meat and potatoes of the LPGA Tour season which will criss-cross the US over the next several weeks leading up to the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, the second major of the year.
We have posted a pool on who will win the Kingsmill Championship. Some of the world’s best are in the field including Ariya Jutanugarn, So Yeon Ryu, and Lexi Thompson. Other players to consider include veteran Christie Kerr, as well as young stars such as In Gee Chun, Lydia Ko, and Minjee Lee. The progressive jackpot has carried over this week, which causes opening odds of 16.5 on each player in the field.
This week CoinRoster is extra excited for the Players Championship because the progressive on our weekly winner’s pool is the highest its ever been. Last week, no user bet on Brian Harman, the eventual winner, so our progressive jackpot rolled over to this week and now stands at 0.236702 bitcoins!
One way to play this progressive is to check the odds on a sports book, then compare the odds on the sports book to the odds in our pool. For example, if the odds for Rickie Fowler are 22 at the sports book and the odds in our pool are 120, then you’re getting much better odds in our pool and our users are getting an edge.
Since the value of the progressive is so high this week (230x the minimum bet) there are lot’s of opportunities on the middle ranked players. Certain players who might be 50 to 1 odds might give our users more than 200x their wager.
This week the PGA Tour stops at TPC Sawgrass for the Players Championships, 7,189 yards, par 72. Already lauded as a course that plays no favorites and deftly tests all parts of a player’s game, the Stadium Course offers two new tests this year for the game’s best players. The narrow water hazard between Nos. 6 and 7 has been expanded into a rectangular lake, removing several trees in the vicinity. More significant is No. 12, which has been turned into a drivable par-4 with both fairway and green sloping toward a new water hazard on the left. What hasn’t changed is the hole that receives the most attention – the iconic 17th, measuring 137 yards over water to a green connected only by narrow rear pathway.
World No. 1 Dustin Johnson and newlywed No. 2 Rory McIlroy join defending champion Jason Day to headline what is annually the year’s strongest roster. The lineup features 24 of the top 25 in the current world rankings and 55 of the top 60. Bernhard Langer, 59, is the oldest player in THE PLAYERS field for the third consecutive year. The Hall of Famer will make his 26th start at TPC Sawgrass, getting in by virtue of last year’s victory at the Constellation SENIOR PLAYERS Championship. One additional berth is available for the winner of this week’s Wells Fargo Championship, if he hasn’t already qualified.
Johnson, owner of three straight wins before the Wells Fargo Championship, could use an uptick at TPC Sawgrass. Before last year’s share of 28th, his previous seven starts had yet to yield a top-30 finish. Johnson has broken 70 just once in an opening round – a 68 in 2014. New Masters Tournament champion Sergio Garcia, the 2008 PLAYERS winner, makes his first start since Augusta National. It’s been 14 years since he missed a cut at TPC Sawgrass – but the past two Masters winners (Jordan Spieth, Danny Willett) missed THE PLAYERS cut after slipping on the green jacket. McIlroy tees it up in competition for the first time as a married man, wedding Erica Stoll in a lavish affair 2 ½ weeks ago at Ashford Castle in Ireland. The reigning FedExCup champion has finished outside the top 10 just once anywhere since East Lake, failing short of knockout play at the WGC Dell Technologies Match Play.
