In what’s become a weekly tradition as surefire as Tiger wearing red on a Sunday, The Action Network Golf Podcast crew is back with another snake draft for the Dell Technologies Championship.
This Week’s Rules
- The Rules: The participants — Peter Jennings, Jason Sobel, Drew “The Sleeze” Stoltz — can pick any golfer with their first four picks, but they have to target players with odds worse than 100-1 with their final two selections.
- The Scoring: Lowest-scoring golfer wins.
- The Stakes: A friendly $50 per man.
Northern Trust Results: Jennings won the pool with his selection of Bryson DeChambeau, who captured a four-shot victory to kick off the FedEx Cup with a bang.
