THE PLAYERS Championship PGA Tour Game

05-10-17

Pete Dye’s TPC Sawgrass will examine the entire bag and the six inches between the ears.

I’d take a look at the last five winners if you’re in need of a clue on what does or doesn’t work this week.

Fantastic picture!

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 Time — Wells Fargo Championship

 

  • Tournament Points: 862
  • Tournament Rank: 11,299
  • Season Points: 21,881
  • Season Rank: 96th

 

Well, that wasn’t very good.

With only two players making the cut (Rahm, Casey), I took a bath on the weekend and dropped from 29th to 96th.

At least I didn’t have to worry about making subs!

Sigh.

I learned a valuable lesson this week: Don’t mimic lineups across fantasy games. That all-or-nothing strategy is great only when it works. When it doesn’t, THIS happens.

With that in mind, I’m still inside the top 100 and I saved a start on DJ so all is not lost.

 

This Week

 

TPC

 

Alternate Alternatives

Without course form to lean on, I’d suggest balancing guys who can dominate par fives and hit tons of greens.

Hell, I’d have no problem with these six guys either!

 

Brooks Koepka

Jon Rahm

Adam Scott

Justin Rose

Martin Kaymer

Kevin Chappell

 

Good Luck!
