This is my first golf post. To qualify it, I'm in the golf industry but I don't work for the TOUR. I don't bet golf so take that for what it is worth.....My version of gambling with the PGA Tour is on Yahoo Fantasy Golf. I'm off to a hot start there in the top 98th percentile and top 1700 in the world....
Here is who I like this week:
Kenny Perry - defending champ. However the past 2 defending champs had a MC the next year in this event!
Brian Gay - past 3 years has finished at -9, -9 and -11. Talked to his caddie and he said it should be a solid week in Scottsdale for them.
Kevin Na - past two years he has been -12 and -13. Good place for him!
Briny Baird - good long shot pick...has finished -3, -10, -8 there past 3 years and coming off a 4th place finish in Mexico last weekend.
David Toms - has a -14, -12 and MC past 3 years...but hasn't done much yet this year.
JB Holmes - last 3 years have 2 MC and a WIN..WTF! Playing well right now though.
R.Allenby - hard to argue against this guy so far this year.
Brandt Snedeker - MC last year but he fought injury all of last year, 2 years before finished -9, -11 and has been playing well this year.
Matt Kuchar - playing well and -11 last year
John Rollins - -20, -6 and +6 past 3 years and been playing ok this year.
Love to hear your thoughts...BOL
Hope to see some of you at the track this weekend. The campsites are filling up fast and lots of beer being DRUNK.
Look for a couple of guys who "need" a good finish this week to do well. I think 17 may be one of those. He was on the local radio here this morning and as you know, he is barely hanging on to the chase. Since 2002 he has been great here (minus a 33 and 39th) He should be a good matchup guy.
I also like 88 this weekend. He finally had a good run last week and has a chance to keep the momentum going.
33 runs well here too and so does 31, both good matchup guys.
Weather is supposed to be great for the Cup race...rain for Nationwide.
18 is great here, 16 is a good matchup guy, Hamlin is a stud.
2 hasnt been real strong here in a few years, so may fade him.
