COMMENT: "Know what separates Scott and Andy from successful guys like me? Barbed wire if we were smart. No, actually it's research. Fearless Forecast is no longer a contest. It's a clinic! Longtime coach Bill Kramer donated the trophies for Fearless Forecast. I can envision hoisting that first-place trophy up now. It's all mine, so get outta the way!"
