Quote of the day"Zoe [Mahan] will be getting a very nice baby gift from me." -- Brandt Snedeker, after winning the Canadian Open. Hunter Mahan withdrew from the tournament on Saturday (while in the lead) in order to be present for the birth of his daughter Zoe
Hunter Mahan surged to a -13 through two rounds, delighting the one-third of GuruGolf managers who had him in their foursomes. And then nature called, and Hunter answered. So itís not surprising that the two teams who tied atop the GuruGolf best ball leaderboard this week were Mahan-free. On the worst ball side, Cooperís Hawk blazed ahead of the pack with a +49, 3 strokes ahead of the runner up, and 7 strokes better than anyone else.
I made one update to the GuruGolf Standings report over the weekend. If you hover over the trades available (far right hand column) for a team, you can see how many trades that team has sold during the season. Remember that a maximum of 10 trades can be sold during the season at a price of $50 per trade. And at the end of the season, the prize for the top franchise value will be determined on the assumption that any available unsold trades are first cashed in. (The winning team must also finish above the median in the full season best ball standings.)
