What a tourney last weekend, eh? I can only say that though I feel for the pain of both Ernie Ells and Jordan Spieth, similarly do I feel reassured that just like I am capable of melting down at any given hole, so are even the best golfers in the world. However, what happened to Rickie Fowler, who ensured a loss with his first round, for my team?
But, just like a week before, a surprise winner in Danny Willett who emerged after the crazy-sad Spieth meltdown shows like so many other games and sports, you just never know.
So, this week we venture to The RBC Heritage, at Harbour Town, South Carolina.
Based upon winners and finishes the past two weeks, it seems like magnitude of tournament has no relationship to who wins or how exciting the finish can be. That said, we must try to approach this logically.
Don't forget to check out our deal with DraftKings where you get a lot of good baseball stuff from us along with some from DraftKings. Hit the link below for details.
As for who I like at the Heritage, let's look.
Paul Casey ($10,800): Casey has done well at Hilton Head the past three years, and has three solid finishes as of late. Eight of nine cuts made closes the deal for me.
Brandt Snedeker ($10,600): Coming off a tenth round finish at Augusta (where he has finished in the Top 20 five times, Snedeker has been hot enough of late, and has eight finishes within the cut his last 11 tourneys.
Ryan Palmer ($7,700): So, I am trying a little different approach with my lower level selections, trying to split the difference like I would #3 starters in baseball, and Palmer is choice #1. He is nine of ten at making cuts and averages 70.2 points.
Scott Brown ($7,500): A fifth round finish in Puerto Rico a few weeks back, brown looks to keep the mojo with nine of 11 cuts made.
Jason Kokrak ($7,400): Eight cuts in 14 tournaments, Kokrak did finish in the money at the Palmer a few weeks back and has some consistency. Maybe he is the next Danny Willet? You never know.
Brendon DeJonge ($6,000): The lower priced--ok lowest priced--spread on the squad, but DeJong has had good success at the Heritage, and has made the cut seven of 14. Like I said: You never know.
Do remember to keep fantasy open and regulated and fair for all by writing your local lawmakers and tell them of your love of playing and desire to keep on playing. Visit the FSTA site for more information (and thanks).
