It’s not even Thursday yet.
Sadly the weather wind and rain will play a factor but that’s a clue on who to lean on this week.
PGA Tour Fantasy Golf Game
Each week, I’ll trot out guys who I believe who fit the course, the game and the road map, plus add some substitutes. Four starters are supported by two bench players each week. Remember, once a player tees off in your lineup he burns a start, so make sure you need to sub out instead of want to sub out.
You’ll learn a few things about me each week in this column.
Games, like this one, that involve daily substitution options, I am terrible at playing.
I’ll give you my best four starters and two bench options but it’s up to you to outguess me on which rounds they should sit or play.
Last Week — Waste Management Phoenix Open
- Tournament Points: 1,488
- Tournament Rank: 1,561
- Season Points: 10,360
- Season Rank: 34th
I made another big leap this week as my final start with Matsuyama couldn’t have worked out any better. Very solid performances from Steele and Rahm evened out Moore’s relatively quiet week. Bradley and Thomas missing the weekend took the guess work out of the week. I didn’t use them either day so I didn’t blow a start! #BangTriscuits. I’d point out that I had Simpson on the Alternates list so that’s not too bad either!
It’s not easy getting in the top 100 of ANY fantasy national game. It’s not easy staying there either. I’m enjoying these last two weeks.
With eight events remaining including this week, roster management will come into play. This will be the last week where multiple courses are used so that means we’re back to SCORING ONLY. Remember there are certain guys who excel on the West Coast and not in Florida and vice-versa. Time to sort it.
With awful weather in the forecast the first two days and rotating courses, don’t be disappointed if you don’t get it right this week. As I wrote in my preview, MPCC is usually the easiest track of the three in play where as Spyglass tends to trend over time as the most difficult. With the rain the first two days, that will make Spyglass a bit more manageable because of the tight fairways. The good news is that the cut is 54-holes and that Pebble Beach will be used twice so experience on that track won’t hurt.
Scoring is the only metric so I’d litter the lineup with veterans who have turned out here in the past. The experience of dealing with delays (perhaps), long rounds and mother nature is the angle for me this week.
