These look pretty standard to me. Technically, you’re getting a good price on Steele and Dufner, but this seems pretty in-line with major championship contenders who are relatively new to the pressure. My sample is small, but there is definitely an effect to playing in the final group of a major. Dufner is a solid touring pro, who should be around average of the field strength tomorrow, but you could make a case if either Brendan Steele or Keegan Bradley won, they would be the worst player to win a major in a while.

A couple of people thought, I’d like Stricker on twitter. I’m not surprised at all I am low on him. No one respects players in contention at a major that haven’t really been there before. Stricker is probably the biggest name in contention right now and I’m not shocked at where Dufner and Steele are.

I’m going to try a live chat around 3 p.m. tomorrow.
