I was concerned that my braggadocio last week might get me into trouble.
Boy, was I right on that.
I panicked as I had never seen heights so high!
Back to reality this week and hoping for a couple of big names to falter this week as I have already burned their starts!
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 — Honda Classic
Tournament Points: 1,039
- Tournament Rank: 6,764
- Season Points: 13,186
- Season Rank: 34th
I had a very interesting week as rostering the winner saw me drop 13 spots back to 34th. The issue was having three of my six not make the weekend as Russell Knox, Justin Thomas and Daniel Berger crapped out early.
It also didn’t help that I didn’t prosper from either of their best rounds as they were affixed to my bench while the other was stinking up the joint.
That was the first time I can remember not having four players for the weekend in this format.
I’m fortunate that I had the winner or the damage would have been worse.
Onward and upward!
The WGC-Mexico Championship welcomes 49 of the top 50 golfers in the OWGR. I’d suggest using a few of them! There are four events after this week but it’s really three considering that the heavy hitters won’t be in Puerto Rico. If you have three starts left on some big boys, I hope for your sake they’re playing the last three events of the session.
7,330 yards this week isn’t going to play that long with the altitude.
And with the rough at only a meager two inches, scoring should be 20-under plus.
The three par fives measure 622, 625 and 575 but knock of 10% due to the altitude and the power players won’t have ANY problem handling these in two.
The altitude should let the shorter knockers hang around as well but the “new” greens shouldn’t give anyone an advantage.
