Fantasy Golf: WGC Cadillac Championship
A short turnaround this week for some players, as the Honda Classic extended into Monday. Padraig Harrington won that one after a playoff, which ended a seven year wait for a victory for the three-time major winner.
On the Fantasy front it was the player Harrington defeated in last weeks play-off that helped us with those all important upward pointing green arrows. Daniel Berger's final day charge pulled in the maximum points for the low scoring round, as well as the bonus points for finishing the tournament in second place. This meant the week ended on a more acceptable note, rather than the terribly bad one it was looking like at the halfway point.
This week the PGA Tour heads to the Blue Monster at Doral for the World Golf Championships - Cadillac Championship in Florida. There are four former winners in the field, including last years victor Patrick Reed. We are going to go with a rather short list this week (two players named last week finished in the top 10 but weren't in eight Yahoo picks), in the hopes a narrower focus will reap more rewards. As per usual the picks are divided up into three groups according to Yahoo Fantasy Golf, but you can select any four golfers you wish for the Official PGA Fantasy Golf game.
