Showdown Player Pool:
The showdown slate is something that we can attack this week. We will be attacking Monterey Peninsula CC as it typically plays as the easiest course, and will be avoiding SpyGlass as it typically plays the most difficult. We will look at the players in our player pool, look at when they play Monterey Peninsula CC, and factor in their round scoring to determine when what players we are going to play on what day.
*Typical Showdown Strategy is to use the player pool listed on the main writeup and make your builds according to the exposures. Typically if a Core or High Exposure play struggles in round 1 they will regress back to the mean. You can typically know who you're going to play based on how well they ranked as a play, and how well they played in a previous round using regression. Simply put if a player dominates one round it is less likely for them to do that again. If they struggle one round it is more likely that they will do well the next round.

DNP - As of right now I do not like what I am seeing for round 3. I might play it by ear and adjust where needed.
