There are a lot of big names playing, from both the PGA tour and the European tour, at the Northern Trust Open this week. And some notable players making their season debut (like Adam Scott and Jim Furyk). I have not picked any of the notable players this week because I want to see how they play before adding them to my roster. So here are my picks:
(1) Jason Day — He was been a bit up and down in his performance in Dhabi and Qatar but Day is ranked 7th in the world and so I am hoping he does well in the USA this week.
(2) Kevin Na — He was a fantasy golf pick in the first event (the Hyundai) and he ranked 16th — not great. But the last two events (in Phoenix and at Pebble Beach) he was tied for 5th. Na has said he likes the Northern Trust Open so I am putting him back in to the mix.
(3) Jimmy Walker — My “what the heck” pick. He was in the top 10 last week and last year he tied for 4th at the Northern Trust Open.
(4) Jeff Maggert — I picked Maggert for fantasy golf in week two (the Sony Open) and he only tied for 18th. Again, not great but for some reason I just felt like picking him. It might be the last time depending on how he performs.
Those are my picks this week and I’ll have my eye on Adam Scott and Jim Furyk.
