Fantasy Golf: Humana Challenge

The PGA Tour heads to California this week for the Humana Challenge. What's unique about this event is that it is played over three courses. Every golfer will get a round on each course over the first three days before the 54-hole cut is made. From a Fantasy perspective, especially in Yahoo, it would appear to favour rotating your players depending on which course they have to tackle that day. Of the three courses, Palmer, Nicklaus and La Quinta, Nicklaus yields the lowest scores with La Quinta the highest. The final round will be played on the Palmer course, so it could pay to have players who have shot lowest on this in one of the earlier rounds, tee up for your team on the final day.

You know the drill with the picks at this stage. A bigger list than the last two weeks, as with the way the tournament is set up, you should have a wide open field (maybe!). The A Group in Yahoo only has seven golfers to choose from though, which makes those two selections a bit tricky. It's something that could make or break your week.

Luke Donald
Ryan Palmer

Group B
