Fantasy Golf: Northern Trust Open

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?
