It’s time to turn over a new leaf and start to take my fantasy golf picks to the next level. What does that mean? I really don’t know. All I know is I need to pick the winner in every tournament for the rest of the year so I can make a move to the top.
Last week at the Northern Trust Open, Sergio Garcia, Bill Haas, Robert Streb and Webb Simpson let me down. While Sergio had a decent week, (should’ve won) the others not so much. They all missed the cut.
This week the PGA Tour jumps on a plane and heads over to Florida, where for the next four weeks most of the guys won’t have to wear jackets to play golf. The Honda Classic is up first at the famed Bear Trap. PGA National Champions Course is the host and the field is stacked this week.
PGA National Resort & Spa plays host to one of the best fields of the 2014-2015 PGA Tour season so far. The Champions Course can be stretched close to 7,100 yards if needed and play to a par-70.
Jack Nicklaus is responsible for the redesign of the course and the famed Bear Trap will sure to be causing all kinds of havoc come Saturday and Sunday.
Russell Henley outlasted the likes of Rory McIlroy, Ryan Palmer and Russell Knox in a playoff last year to take home the victory. Shooting 64-68-68-72 over the course of four days he will be back this year to defend his title.
Front9Back9 Fantasy Golf Picks
Okay, here we go, my PGA Tour golf picks for The Honda Classic.
My man Sergio should have won the Northern Trust Open last weekend at Riviera. But once again he blew great chances down the stretch. He finished T4 and had a great showing last year at The Honda Classic with a T8.
Keegan has cashed three top-15 finishes in the last three years at The Honda Classic. Last week he finished T5 at Riviera, so Keegan is playing well. You never know, Keegans best bud, Michael Jordan, might show up this week at PGA National.
Palmer has always played well at PGA National. Last week he was off and his last start was a MC at Pebble Beach. Ryan lost in a playoff last year at The Honda and I’m hoping to see him get back to playing good golf this week.
The Waste Management Phoenix Open champ is 2nd in driving and top-10 in scoring this year on the PGA Tour so far. He currently sits in 10th place in the Fed Ex Cup race so Brooks is heading towards his best season ever. A win at Honda will get him much closer to becoming a great player.
So that’s it folks. I am taking the week off from recording a video but I’ll be live ready to Tweet all weekend long rooting along my fantasy golf picks for The Honda Classic.
