Fantasy Golf: WGC-HSBC Champions Recap

10-31-2016

Hideki Matsuyama continued his red-hot form in becoming the first Asian player to win a WGC event.

Final Thoughts from WGC-HSBC Champions

 

These are never easy to win simply due to the who usually plays in them so hats off to Matsuyama. His recent play hardly makes this a surprise but it was hardly a track he had any past successes on over three trips. Last weekend was more proof that if a premium ball-striker gets it going with the putter, it’s lights out! Matsuyama easily qualifies as that.

Still Rolling

 

Hideki Matsuyama (WIN): Second win in three starts worldwide and nothing outside fifth in his last four.

 

Rory McIlroy (T-4): No surprise here as he’s never finished worse than T-11 on this track; third top four in his last four.

Francesco Molinari (T-6): Last time out he won the Italian Open.

Paul Casey (T-12): Only finish outside of the top 12 in his last five is T-23.

Adam Scott (T-14): Worse finish in his last six Tour events.

Ryan Moore (T-23): Chugging along after his season kicked off with his win at the JDC.

Justin Thomas (T-23): T-8, WIN and another top 25 in three starts to kick off the new season.

 

Caught My Eye

 

Emiliano Grillo (11th): Any place. Any time. Anywhere.

Jason Kokrak (T-16): Swam with the sharks this week.

Ross Fisher and Alex Noren, non-Tour members, continued solid form while bounce-back performances from Matthew Fitzpatrick and Thomas Pieters were also noted.
