Fantasy Golf: Hyundai Tournament of Champions

The PGA Tour returns this week with a weekend in Hawaii for all of the 2014 tournament winners (well, those who show up!). It's a pretty small field of 34 competitors and there will be no cut to worry about either. So it should be a little easier from a fantasy perspective, yes?

Well we'll see about that come Monday! Yahoo Fantasy Golf returns this week for its twelve week winter swing. PGA Fantasy is into it's seventh week. It started its fantasy season last October at the Open. Sang-Moon Bae won that tournament to earn his right to tee up at Kapalua here in the new year.

Not many picks this week as a result, but as always the list will be divided up into A, B & C groups according to their placing in the Yahoo Fantasy Golf game. Underlined players are in my team, strongest picks on top. The PGA Fantasy game let's you pick any four players for your team and you score points on their final placing. In Yahoo you score points for the lowest card of the day, with bonus points for a top 3 finish at the end. You pick 8 players, but only score points each day for 4 of them, but can rotate in any of your other 4 reserve players each day.

Without further explanation, here are the picks for this weekend.

Group A
Bubba Watson
Matt Jones

Group B
Matt Kuchar
Chris Kirk
Jason Day
Jimmy Walker

Group C
Patrick Reed
Tim Clark
Geoff Ogilvy
Scott Stallings

Good Luck Everyone
