Fantasy Golf: Crowne Plaza Invitational
I hope everyone heeded the advice of the Notebook last week and put Rory McIlroy in their respective fantasy squads. He blew everyone away when winning by seven strokes at the Wells Fargo Championship. All the damage was done on a blistering Saturday score of -11. Patrick Rodgers, who finished tied second, actually out scored McIlroy by two shots over the other three days but couldn't hold a candle to him during the third round.
McIlroy is in Wentworth this week for the European Tour so we will be hoping for a closer tournament this week! But who to pick? Jordan Spieth is a popular selection this week, with 39% of Yahoo players choosing him. The Texan will be eager to get back in the swing of things after a couple of quiet weeks, especially with the U.S. Open coming up next month. Fellow Texan Ryan Palmer should also be a popular choice, currently 28% of players have chosen him out of Yahoo Group A. While this Invitational is in Texas, that doesn't mean a local player will win, but it's better to put a few in your team just to be safe!
This weeks selections include the aforementioned Texans, as well as some previous winners, and some long shots. As usual, picks are divided into groups according to Yahoo, and at the bottom of the page you can see the six players selected for the Avis PGA Fantasy game.
Avis Fantasy Golf: Ryan Palmer, Jimmy Walker, Zach Johnson, Jordan Spieth - David Toms, Kevin Streelman.
