I am still not sure what the secret to consistency in Fantasy Golf is--aside from really knowing a field of players I am just learning, coupled with a cluster of courses that similarly are just becoming familiar--but I am enjoying and learning said field and venues each week playing the $3 DraftKings Weekly Hybrid PGA.
The issue is over the past few weeks I can pick the sleepers, a la Jamie Lovemark a couple of weeks ago and Roberto Castro last week, but the players who seem the most stable, like Rickie Fowler and Davis Love III, just crumble when I roster them.
So, this week the tour ventures to Point Vedra, Florida, and the hot Players Championship on a course that seems to favor shorter, tighter holes, which at least made me look more to the likes of Freddie Jacobsen than Bubba Watson.
Meaning, I made my high end selections that make me nervous, and also my lower end plays who somehow buoy my confidence at this moment in time and space.
By the way, 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.
Rory Mcllroy ($11,700): Mcllroy's cost dropped $1100 over the past week, and despite a rugged start at Wells Fargo last week, the Northern Ireland native still charged to a fourth place finish. Seven of eight in cuts, and the best bet, perhaps?
Sergio Garcia ($9700): Garcia has been within the Top 10 at TPC Sawgrass nine times the past 12 years with a win in 2008.
Billy Horschel ($8200): Made the cut 11 of 12 tourneys this past year, and Horschel is a guy who does well when on ny team. Horschel finished tied for 13th at TPC Sawgrass last year and has five top 20 wins this season.
Jamie Lovemark ($7000): Now my go-to guy it seems, Lovemark finished second at Zurich and just seems to deliver, as 12 cuts over 17 tries suggests.
Freddie Jacobsen ($6100): I wasn't kidding above, in a smaller course that suits the Swede's game. Jacobsen is 10 of 12 making the cut, so he can play.
David Hearn ($6100): Hearn was two strokes off the Players lead last year before a rugged (78) final round killed his overalls, and Hearn played well at San Antonio and New Orleans over recent weeks. Hearn has made the cut in ten of 18 attempts this cycle.
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).
