Nice week to David Toms and Charlie Wi this week. Toms played two great rounds, one really good one and one horrendous one. Charlie Wi was a bit more consistent, but both players were a lot better than this field.
The blue line is Toms average in relation to the field at each of these events. The Green line is how he fared in relation to that average. The Red line is his Vegas price based on the 2-year-average.
As you can see Toms came into this week on quite a roll with 4 of 5 events playing at or below his average. Not surprisingly, he went from being “value” to being “not value*.”
Value and not value are in relation to my rankings over 2 years. In reality, the fact that Toms was playing so well coming in, would probably give him a small bonus in the short term.
Charlie was not coming into this week on a hot streak like Toms. He did play well last week and I’m assuming because his game would seem to fit this course he was a little lower this week.

Up-and-down play coming in this week, but coming off three “bad” tournaments in a row. I would guess BVP had as much respect as he has every had coming off the Masters, but a few bad weeks and he went back to underrated it seems.
I’m not sure why the price on Johnson kept dropping prior to the Masters, then shot back up again, but it does make sense that it would drop as the defending champ coming off a decent week at the PLAYERS.
