So after last week at the Transitions Championship, I moved up two spots to #18 in the Fans of Devil Ball Yahoo Fantasy golf league. Thanks to a great win by Jim Furyk. I had Furyk in my B group so that got me some great points. And why is Jim Furyk in the B group? The #6 ranked player in the world and he still is in the B group. Maybe they will re-position the players at the start of the spring season. Either way, I was hoping to move up closer to the top 10 so I would have a good shot at ending somewhere near the top.
With the start of the Arnold Palmer Invitational today, I decided to go with Phil and Kenny Perry as my A players. I tool Furyk, Villegas, Hunter Mahan and Charles Howell III as my B team and Rickie Fowler and Mike Weir as my C players.
At the end of play of the first day, I didn’t do so hot. Camilo Villegas shot a 5-over 77 and Rickie Fowler shot a 73. On the bench I had Mike Weir who shot a smoking 67. So of course I put him in for Friday. But this is a double edges sword. Weir was hot the first day and could cool off the second day and Rickie Fowler could shoot a 67. But I am going to make the change to Weir. I am going to stick with Mickelson as my A player and move Hunter Mahan to Camilo’s place. Which could be the same double edged sword as my C group.
I am hoping to get a good run this weekend and maybe end up in the top 10 for the winter series. That would be pretty nice after dropping as low as 58 earlier in the year.
If you haven’t signed up for the league, it’s not too late. You can still get in by joining the Fans of Devil Ball league before the start of next week.
