The Travelers Championship - Round 1 Round-Up

My takeaway from round one of The Travelers Championship? That I'm pretty terrible at picking out who to avoid. I had suggested avoiding Harris English and Scott Langley, and while one round does not make a trend, it's looking like I could be eating crow come Sunday night. I'd feel better about it if I had Brendan Steele (-8) on the radar at all for this tournament, since he was picking up birdies like they were 90 percent off for the Steam summer sale.

Here's how my rankings and subjective picks stacked up today. All in all, a good start, though the players at Even and +1 are on the bubble tomorrow. Tell me how your team stacked up in the comments!
