Just when I thought maybe I was working into a bit of a golf groove, with wins two of three weeks, the Masters and Heritage came to haunt in that none of my top picks--Rickie Fowler, Brandt Snedeker, Paul Casey, or Jason Day--did squat.
So, to San Antonio we go, and though I am close to pulling out the dart board, let's try to use a little logic and also remember I am new to golf and the players and the courses. Meaning my rationale is that everything takes time!
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 the Valero:
Brooks Koepka ($10,400): Koepka is young (25) but can drive the ball and he tied for 36th at San Antonio two years back. Koepka made the cut at The Masters (finishing tied for 21st) and has played all weekend eight of ten times this season.
Brandt Snedeker ($10,300): After Snedeker burned me last week, I should be tempted to dump him, buy over the previous six years, the 35-year old had made the cut every time, suggesting the terrible Heritage was an anomoly. Made eight of 11 other cuts this year.
Bryson Dechambeau ($9800): The Corey Seager of the 2016 PGA Tour, I am down with picking the bay area boy who is three-for-three on making the cut.
John Senden ($6700): Tied for 23rd at the Heritage, and seven for twelve making the cut.
Kyle Stanley ($6500): Finished 34th at the Heritage, but dropped from 21st after a meltdown final four holes of his fourth round. Ten for 14 making the cut.
Ricky Barnes ($6300): Finished tied for ninth at the Heritage with a last round 68 last Sunday, and is 10-for-15 playing all weekend. And, well, need some low end gambles, right?
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).
