Fantasy Golf: Farmers Insurance Open
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?
