Hunter Mahan won the Shell Houston Open. If you have been reading my posts you know that Mahan is one of the Golf Boys. This is Mahan’s second win this year so maybe I need to think about him in my fantasy picks more often. My picks were not horrible this week but I was disappointed that one player missed the cut.
Here are my picks for this week:
(1) Keegan Bradley — Keegan played well with a tie for 4th. He shot the same score as the winner on Sunday (71) but his other rounds of 67, 69, and 69 were just not low enough to help him on the last day.
(2) Kevin Steelman — Steelman missed the cut. This surprised me because I thought he would player better but it was not his week.
(3) Henrik Stenson — My “what the heck” pick this week had a respectable showing with a tied for 21st place. I’m happy with this pick.
(4) James Driscoll — When I picked Driscoll, I stated that I hoped he had learning something from 2011 when he played the Houston Open and missed the cut. Well, he certainly did learn from his past. Driscoll played really well in round one and two (67 and 66) but on the weekend he shot 71 and 73.
