What the heck is Outlaw Tour Golf?
Pretty straight forward setup here. One note worth mentioning: scoring will not be updated live. Instead scoring will go final once the round is over.

Worth Paying Up For
Who you pay up for has a lot to do with how you want to build. Instead of giving you one player, I am going to give you a few of my favorites in the 9k+ range. You can grab more than one of these guys depending on your build. I will list these plays in order of price.
Nick Mason- For some more on Mason, check out yesterdays writeup in which he was our top pay up play. He wasn’t spectacular today, but his -2 effort was good enough to keep him at 2nd play, 1 stroke behind 1st and 2 ahead of 3rd.
KK Limbhasut- KK came in to this week with the 2nd best odds at 8/1. He was one of the favorites last week as well but finished 16th but has a 3rd place finish in his other tournament. Round 2 was the first time we finally saw him break out a bit in the last 5 rounds, shooting a 4 under on the back 9 and 4 under on the day, good for 3rd best score of the day. KK sits 5th and is in striking distance.
Nicolo Galletti- I really like Galletti and he actually made my round 2 line. He rewarded me with a 5 under day, 2nd best of the day. Galletti is playing very good golf right now, finishing 2nd in last weeks Orange Tree Classic. Now he is sitting 3rd with a real shot at back to back top 2 finishes.
Ryan Porch- If you have been following my articles the last 2 weeks, you know one of the things I am looking for is consistency. Ryan Porch is one of those guys. In 6 tournaments this year, Porch has finished top 10 in 5, including 9th last week. Today he shot 5 under, 2nd best of the day, to move up to 5th place.
Again there are a few options in the 8-8.9k range. I will once again be listing them by price with the most expensive first.
Kyle Slattery- Slattery was tied for the lead after a first round 62. He fell off a tad today, shooting a 67. But that is still good enough for first place. For some more insight on Slattery, check out yesterdays article in which we featured him in the Value section. Slattery is a free spot, take it.
Yannik Paul- We started the week talking about Jeremy Paul and we are ending it talking about Yannik Paul. Yannik Paul has 4 top 10 finishes in 7 events this year, including a 2nd place. He has been consistent this week shooting an opening round 67 and a 2nd round 68 today. He struggled on the front nine today, shooting 1 over. But he recovered nicely on the back, shooting 3 under. Putting him at 5 under, good for 8th place.
George Markham- Markham was another one of our featured plays for Round 2 as he was criminally cheap. His price has caught up a bit for Round 3, but at 8.3k he is still a solid mid range play. Like Paul, Markham struggled on the front nine today, shooting 1 over. But he recovered on the back, shooting 3 under and putting himself in a tie for 5th place at 7 under.
We really don’t need a ton of value today, but I have 3 plays I like here, one of which is a free spot. Again I will be listing by price.
Jeff Nichols- Nicholas had the best round 2 of any golfer, shooting a full 2 strokes better than anybody else with a monster -7. Nichols hasn’t shown the consistency I prefer to see with only 1 top 10 finish in 6 events this year. But that one top 10 was a first place. After a +5 opening 9, Nichols has shot -3, -3 and -4 in his last 27 holes. Sitting at 8th place and only 7.5k.
Mitchel Carlson- Carlson is by far the cheapest player in the top 10 here. Sitting at 5 under and tied for 8th. At only 6.8k, expect Carlson to be chalk. His price opens up your lineup and the fact that he has been consistent this week with a 68 and 67 gives me confidence he isn’t going to kill you. Eat the chalk.
Benjamin Shur– Easily the riskiest play, Shur is only 6.5k and is sitting at 2 under for the tournament, good for 15th place. Shur is the cheapest player in the top 15 and is a viable punt if you want to grab an extra stud. I prefer a more balanced look today, but Shur is there if you don’t mind the risk.
