In fact the last ten winners will be here again this weekend, but who should you rely on for your fantasy team? Also of note, is that in those last ten years there has only been three American winners.
Rory is the favourite and should be in everyone's fantasy teams this weekend. In Yahoo Fantasy golf 40% of teams have him in their team, mostly paired with Sergio Garcia. If either of these players have a good four days and you don't have them, you could leave yourself with a mountain to climb going into the final four tournament of the winter section (Yahoo).
Last weekend at the Northern Trust Open provided our team with lots of green arrows after a tied second from Dustin Johnson and a tied fourth from Keegan Bradley. Here's hoping we can maintain that upward momentum in Florida. As always picks are divided into groups as per Yahoo, while in Official PGA Fantasy Golf you can choose any four golfers that you want.

Last weeks AT&T Pebble Beach had its ups and downs fantasywise. While Snedeker was present and won the tournament, plus J.B. Holmes shot the lowest round on the first and last days, all this was offset by both Group C players missing the cut and a few lacklustre performances on the second and third days. Hopefully the Northern Trust Open will see us start to move further up the leaderboard.
Looking at the field: Dustin Johnson and J.B. Holmes both have four top 10s in the last seven years. While Charl Schwartzel has only been here twice but has finished third and fifth, so perhaps third times the charm? And just to add, this is Fred Couples' 33rd tournament here. For those willing to take a chance, Couples has won twice here and relishes this tournament when in the mood. He has five top 10s in the last 13 years, but he has missed the cut two out of the last three. I would love to see Boom Boom do well here again. But is he worth taking a risk on in this weeks fantasy?
Here are this weeks picks, broken down by group as per Yahoo Fantasy Golf. Any four golfers can be selected in PGA Fantasy.

Last weeks list only coughed up a couple of seventh placings and a slew of missed cuts, so a slide down the rankings was inevitable I'm afraid. Hopefully this weeks trip to Pebble Beach will see our team be more upwardly mobile.
Pebble Beach has long been one of my favourite courses. It's just a beautiful, beautiful setting to watch golf being played. But who will come out victorious this weekend? Tiger Woods will be missing because of injury, but long gone are the days when he could win here by 15 stokes.
I have gone for the last two winners here in my picks (Walker, Snedeker) but there are many entrants who could claim the big prize come Sunday night.
As always, picks are broken down into A, B and C as per Yahoo groups. You may select any four golfers you like in the Official PGA Fantasy Golf game. The A Group this week has only 5 golfers to select from; Furyk, Holmes, Jones, Noh and Palmer. Selecting the right combination could yet again make or break your fantasy week.
Good luck everyone.

An improvement of sorts last week as my Yahoo Fantasy side moved up ten percentile points thanks to two tied second placings (Watson and Matsuyama) and a tied fifth (Laird). Unfortunately not many points garnered in PGA Fantasy though as all my combinations struggled to break past one hundred points.
On to this week and I'm hoping for an even better return in what is a pretty open field. The Tour heads to San Diego and to Torrey Pines Golf Course. San Diego is a great place and I really must get back there someday. The crucial element to remember about the Farmers Insurance Open is that it is played over two courses. The North and South courses play slightly differently, with the North course giving up the lowest average score. With this in mind, when playing the Yahoo game it should be worth your while swapping players in and out over the opening two days depending on which course your golfer is tackling.
So here are this weeks picks. Slim pickings in Group A again, and I don't fancy Tiger Woods to return to form. Will he even make the cut?
