Fantasy Golf: AT&T Byron Nelson Championship
This week the PGA Tour is still in Texas for the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship at TPC Four Seasons in Dallas. The tough par 70 course usually throws up an unexpected winner. Last year saw Brendon Todd win by two strokes, and it is still his only PGA Tour win. People still fancy him to do well this time out as he has been selected by over 17% of teams from players in Yahoo Group C.
Jordan Spieth, unsurprisingly, is the most selected player this week with nearly 47% of teams including him. Spieth is in Yahoo Group B. Just behind him is Group A's Ryan Palmer on 41%. Palmer has only three PGA Tour wins, the last being in 2010, but he did lose a play-off to Keegan Bradley at the Byron Nelson in 2011.
Surprisingly I feel is that former winner Rory Sabbatini is not getting much love this week from those ever fickle selectors! He only finds himself in a little over 1% of teams. When Sabbatini won he shot a -19, the lowest winning score at the Four Seasons. Does he make it into the selections for us this week though? Well, read on.... as usual players are listed according to the groupings of Yahoo Fantasy Golf, in PGA Fantasy you can pick any four players. Avis PGA Fantasy Golf selections are given at the bottom. In the AVIS game you select six golfers, four of which score points for you each day.
The weather can often play havoc in this tournament, so it will pay to keep an eye on what's happening each day and adjust your roster accordingly. Weather reports for the area and tee-times will be your friend this week.
AVIS Fantasy Golf selections: Brandt Snedeker, Marc Leishman, Russell Henley, Gary Woodland - John Huh, Tony Finau.
