My fantasy golf has been horrendous this year. Currently I am sitting in 85th place in Fans of Devil Ball Fantasy Golf. The PGA Tour is moving across the country and the first stop is in Palm Beach Gardens, FL at The Honda Classic. Last Thursday rumors were swirling that Tiger Woods could possibly enter after his terrible WGC Match Play showing, but that turned out false. The tournament is right in his new backyard pretty close to his new estate in Florida. He didn’t enter, citing “scheduling conflicts.” Oh well, time for this weeks golf picks:
Graeme McDowell– Four of the top five spots in the World Golf Rankings are Europeans. Luke Donald moved ahead of Graeme McDowell and I think he could use this for motivation. An early exit from the WGC has given him lots of time off from golf, and I expect McDowell to bounce back huge this week. I am backing up McDowell with Matt Kuchar.
Rickie Fowler and Vijay Singh are my starting “B” team players. Rickie Fowler is poised for a win, and I am going to continue to pick him until he finally wins. It’s only inevitable right? I guess we will see. Vijay on the other hand is pretty hot right now. He played great on the west coast swing and going back to Florida should suit him well. Justin Leonard and Ian Poulter will back up these two players.
Jimmy Walker– Walker has been playing pretty well as of late, and he is a San Antonio area guy so I root for him to play well. Walker may fall off the map this week but just in case I have backed him up with Brandt Snedeker.
