Full scoring is back in action this week as the West Coast swing ends this week at the famous Riviera.
The weather in Los Angeles this winter has been interesting to say the least and the Friday forecast is, well, something.
So is a bunker in the middle of a green!
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.

Gamers will now see the “value” of starts in this game.
I didn’t roster Spieth last week as I only have one start remaining.
The good news was that I had three (Snedeker, Rahm and DJ) of the other six highest scoring players on the week.
I jumped from No. 34 to No. 32 without having the winner so absolutely no complaints here.
The next question will be where exactly to burn Spieth before the Masters.
The game turns back to its original roots this week as all the facets will once again be measured.
Balancing your team with experience and ability won’t be hard with the influx of first-time starters on the season who carry serious pedigree.
Riviera doesn’t hand out many cookies and with the forecast for Friday and Saturday, canoe rentals might be through the roof.
Wind and multiple inches of rain won’t shorten this classic one bit but it might keep the Poa manageable and less speedy which will benefit the bad putters.
