  1. #51,200 (or “points”)!!!
    I know it’s a rerun, but I’d forgotten about this!
    Can’t wait to see this play out this evening!!!

    Seeing these game 1, match 3 stats makes me realize Brad could’ve been very much in the GOAT discussion entering game 2 had the final 2 DD’s went his way, just as it could’ve been but for 3 missed DDs in match 1. If he’d nailed his DD, then got and nailed the one Ken got, he could’ve entered day 2 with 31,200, ahead of James’s 27,200, and barely behind Ken’s 32,800! That would’ve changed the dynamics completely and been exciting!

      Disclaimer for Brad’s match1: had he made all his match 1 DD’s, he’d have been in the lead entering the game 2 FJ, though unfortunately he missed FJ also.

    I’m losing track of where everybody stands in the total competition. I know Ken took the first 2-day win and Brad is struggling, but James is in the middle and quite unpredictable.

    • Going into this game, Ken and James had each taken one two game match. After this game Ken led in game 1 of match number 3 with game 2 coming up.

    Thanks,Jim. It still wasn’t quite clear after I watched the episode.
