What a week was the last, when the PGA came to Silverado and Northern California, along with some torrential rain, pretty much blowing out our chance to attend the festivities.
As if that weren't enough, I again hit the duplicitous and fickle cross-over between the Fantasy Gods and the Golf Gods, and the results were that I made one of the best picks. On the higher end, I selected Charles Howell along with 21.4% of the 5844 players and Howell missed the cut. But on the low-end, I went with Patton Kizzire and just 4.3% of players and Kizzier went on to finish tied for second. As for me, my team was just good enough to finish outside the money.
This week the tour moves to exotic Malaysia and TPC Kuala Lampur in what looks to be a stepped up collection of players as the 2016 Tour moves into full speed. And in support, it looks like I have an International lineup.
Don't forget you can duke it out against me and cut your chops playing $3 DraftKings Weekly Hybrid PGA.
Adam Scott ($10,900): Beginning with one of the most consistent players, and one from down under, Scott hit 19 of 19 cuts, averaged 83.1 points per contest, and is sort of in his back yard with the Indonesian venue.
Rafael Cabrera-Bello ($9200): I just like the young Spaniard, who has come through for me and has 20 out of 21 cuts made, with an average 76.2 points per contest.
Russell Knox ($8200): Knox is a Scot who averages 67.9 points and has 24 of 29 tourneys last year where he played all four days.
Kevin Kisner ($7700): Kisner, a Native Son, is a big hitter, but does have trouble getting into the top of the rankings. Still, he has 21 of 26 cuts made and averages 64.5 points.
Younghan Song ($7700): This selection, out of South Korea, is largely unknown to me, but he comes from a country of disciplined athletes and is four-for-four making the cut on the tour. He has to prove me wrong, at this point.
Gaganjeet Bhullar ($6700): Another crap shoot, Bhullar is from India, and has hit the finals four of six times, and well, at this point I am not too worried about my lower-end picks. It is the Scotts and Cabrera-Bellos I worry about.
