This is week three — is three times the charm for me? Will my fantasy golf picks do well? Who knows but here are my picks for the Humana Challenge.
(1) Phil Mickelson — what can I say he is my favorite golfer so this is a loyalty pick. Let’s hope “Lefty” gets off to a strong start for 2012.
(2) Charles Howell III — His nick name is “Chucky Three Sticks” which is funny because he does not look like a “Chucky.” Anyway, he was tied for 2nd last week at the Sony Open and he was 13th last year at the Humana Challenge so I’m hoping he does well this week.
(3) Kyle Stanley — He is my “What the heck” pick this week and the only reason I picked him is because Gary Williams, Golf Channel, Morning Drive host picked him. I like the Morning Drive show and so I thought I’d go with one of the host’s picks.
(4) Erik Compton — This is a long shot but Compton’s personal story is so amazing and inspiring. Compton is a double heart transplant. Can you imagine having had one heart transplant let alone two; and on top of it being a good enough golfer to make the PGA tour.
