“HOGE’S’ HEROES” ARE BACK AT IT AGAIN

“Hoge’s Heroes” are back at it again.

The two bettors who took home more than $60,000 on Tom Hoge to win two weeks ago cashed another big check thanks to Scottie Scheffler.

Andrew Phillips and Ricci Libby once again put together a list of golfers for the Waste Management Phoenix Open and guessed correctly one of their choices.

Scheffler was mentioned in many of their different bets and helped them bring home $28,000 each. That price comes after hedging a fair share of different bettors and paying off the losses on other golfers.

The two said that if Brooks Koepka had hit, they’d have won over $100,000.

“The leaderboard was so stacked up, ” Phillips said. “Scottie was down there, we weren’t really focusing on him.”

But it was Scheffler who made the ultimate push late on Sunday and forced Patrick Cantlay into three playoff holes.

 Phillips says that they have had a chance to win on a putt on hole 18 in three straight weeks.

“We missed two of them, but won two of the tournaments,” he said.

Their wins aren’t going unnoticed. DraftKings gifted Phillips two glass-seats to the New York Rangers game this week and they are trying to coordinate tickets for Libby who lives in Texas.

The two have been quite profitable in just two weeks time, saying that if they continue to win, they’ll take their wives on a trip to Scotland for the Open Championship in July as the historic Old Course at St. Andrews.

“We have won probably $115,000, $116,000 over the last two weeks,” Libby said. “That’s with two massive hedges on 18, we hedged $25,000 between Spieth and Cantlay.”

Before their heads go to airline tickets for the Sumner, they are still focused on winning this weekend at the Genesis Invitational played in Riviera, California.

They put together a handful of early parlays in the week that were paired with Jon Rahm to win this weekend. They say the early legs have hit in four of those five parlays and now it lies on Rahm to finish the job.

“On Monday night, we bet five parlays for a total of $2400, we hit four out of five,” Libby said. “We have $1900 on Rahm, our Rahm bet pays $40,000 already. Cam Smith, we have right at two grand, which already pays $75,000.”
