Fantasy Golf: John Deere Classic

Despite mentioning George McNeill who finished 2nd, and two players who tied for fourth in last weeks Greenbrier Classic, none of my Fantasy teams had them together in any meaningful way so as to bother the top of the leaderboards. Hopefully this weeks John Deere Classic can see an improvement in the overall teams scores. Of course that all depends on the combinations they are put in. So with no more beating around the bush, here is who am going for this week.
As usual, Yahoo Fantasy Golf divides the players into three groups, while Official PGA Fantasy lets you pick any four players.

Group A
Kyle Stanley
Ryan Moore

Group B
Kevin Streelman
Steve Stricker
Jordan Spieth
Brian Stuard
Chris Kirk
Zach Johnson
Danny Lee

Group C
Scott Langley
Jason Bohn
Harris English
Patrick Rodgers
Scott Brown
David Toms
Troy Merritt
Sang Moon Bae
Ben Martin
Luke Guthrie
Bud Cauley

Fantasy Golf: The Greenbrier Classic

This week the PGA Tour heads to The Old White TPC at White Sulphur Springs in West Virginia. Last year saw Jonas Blixt come away the winner, but who can come out on top at the classic this year? If you ask me, its a pretty open field again, so I'm going to spread a lot of picks widely. It has been a slow few weeks since the US Open, but hopefully some of these names can challenge at the top of the leaderboard come Sunday evening.
As I said, one or two picks have been missing the cut in the last few weeks. I had a feeling Tiger Woods would not make the cut last week so I didn't put him in any of my teams. Surprisingly Jason Day missed the cut last week also, so returned no points. He had made 32 cuts in a row before last weekend, but has picked up an injury to his thumb and has withdrawn from this weekend. Anyone who does miss the cut though can sit back and listen to Maroon 5 who are playing at White Sulphur Springs on the Friday night! But for now, we are only interested in who will be around come Sunday Morning (obscure Maroon 5 reference).
So here goes the picks, good luck.

Group A
Daniel Summerhays
Patrick Reed
Bubba Watson
Gary Woodland

Group B
Brian Harman
Martin Flores
Michael Thompson
Brendon de Jonge
David Hearn
Bryce Molder

Group C
Ben Martin
Andrew Svoboda
Jimmy Walker
Steven Bowditch
Pat Perez
George McNeil
Brendon Todd
Tommy Gainey
Scott Stallings
Bud Cauley
Andres Romero
John Peterson
Stuart Appleby
