Patrick Cantlay with the BMW trophy

Another disappointing week for my Twofer Tuesday picks. I had Tony Finau (T28) and Joohyung "Tom" Kim (T54). Ironically, I had Patrick Cantlay and Rory McIlroy last week. Amazing how bad you can look when you're just one week off...

  • Top10s: 23 for 88 (15 Top5, 8 Top10)
  • Winners: 3 for 43
  • Top20s: 36 for 88

Paddy Ice is proving to be an end-of-season force of nature. Last year he won the BMW and the TOUR Championship (let's not argue about the staggered start, he got the trophy and the FedExCup). Nobody's ever gone back-to-back defending a Playoff win.

Until Paddy Ice. And he did it pretty decisively.

I think Adam Scott and Scott Stallings deserve LOADS of kudos for what they did Sunday. Both are going to East Lake, with Scott being the only pro to play his way into each of the Playoff events this year and Stallings making it his first-ever trip. I was pulling for them both.

But Cantlay's clearly the guy you DON'T want chasing you come Sunday afternoon in the Playoffs. And just to make that clear, he's added yet another Limerick Summary to his collection. Next week could be very interesting...

If he’s chasing you down, don’t look twice;
Those who do soon get clamped in his vise.
He’s not churlish or rude
But I’m warning you, dude…
You do NOT want to face Paddy Ice.
