You know how in baseball, when Chili Davis always is able to hit Nolan Ryan, we say Davis has "Nolan's number"? Similarly, if Chili went hitless against the Express, we said Noley was due? Well, going into last week, Kevin Na and Ollie Schniederjans had made 11 cuts in 11 tries between them this year.
That is until last week, when I plucked both names from the lower end of the price heap hoping the pair would simply keep it going. Well, the course was due as both missed the cut, dooming my team to mediocrity.
This week, The Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando is the home to The Palmer fete. Ideally, the hot hands stay hot. And, don't forget you can duke it out against me and cut your chops playing $3 DraftKings Weekly Hybrid PGA.
Henrik Stenson ($11,500): Coming off a strong finish at Valspar, Stenson basically goes to his home course at a time when he is averaging 81.3 points per week.
Brandt Snedeker ($9000): Snedeker has finished five tourneys this season and placed tenth at the WBC-Mexico Championships a couple of weeks back.
Jamie Lovemark ($7500): Lovemark is a big hitter, and he should fare well on the 7400 yard course in Orlando.
Charl Schwartzel ($7400): Schwartzel finished a hot sixth at the Valspar last week, so again, willing to try the hot hand and spread the risk among a lot of good players.
Sean O'Hair ($7300): O'Hair had to withdraw from Valspar with a sore neck, but he is seven-for-seven this season making the cut, and has made it at the Palmer five straight times. I will be checking his status today, but as for now, he is a play.
Webb Simpson ($7100): Simpson is five-for-six making cuts, and finished Valspar one over for a 41st place tie. And, well, as a lower priced play, all I am asking is he play through the weekend, 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).
