PGA Dell Technologies Side Action: Will Justin Thomas Repeat?

Aug 30, 2018 2:19 PM EDT

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.

Season Standings

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.
