Wow, what a good week I had at the Wyndham, finishing among the Top 150. What is strange is again my most expensive--and top ranked--selection, Webb Simpson who checked in at $10,200, was my worst selection for the week.
This week the tour moves to Farmingdale, New York, and Bethpage Black as the pros play the Barclays, and this week I played my picks more to the middle of the pack rather than go all out favorites.
Remember you can play against me and cut your chops playing $3 DraftKings Weekly Hybrid PGA. As for my picks, this week I looked hard at trying to both split the difference, picking golfers in the middle price range, but also trying to grab players who had been successful at Bethpage Black in the past.
Phil Mickelson ($9700): Oh man, I just love picking Phil, who has been off for a few weeks. Sentimental? I suppose so, but he is a winner, has made 13 of 18 cuts, and prior to his recent hiatus remember that Mickelson tore it up at that famous finale to this year's PGA.
Adam Scott ($9500): 15-for-15 with an average of 80.8 points per tourney. Sold.
Bubba Watson ($9100): Bubba is also among my favorites, and he is a perfect 16-for-16 making cuts and averages 75 points per contest.
Charl Schwartzel ($8500): Schwartzel is another player who has responded when I picked him, and having made 16 of 17 cuts, that is likely why. Schwartzel played at Bethgate in 2012 and finished tied for 24th, so I am down with him.
Jason Dufner ($6600): Dufner has played increasingly well the past weeks, and finished tied for 60th at the Open Championship, and last week turned in a final round 67 at Wyndham to finish tied for 22nd.
Kevin Kisner ($6400): Kisner has four Top-30 finishes out of his last five starts, and scored a killer 63--six birdies and an eagle--at Wyndham final round to finish tied for tenth. He's hot, and cheap, and I hope Kisner comes through.
