Fantasy Golf: The Greenbrier Classic
A quick post here as the tournament is about to start.
The Greenbrier Classic in West Virginia often throws up some surprise winners (Ted Potter Jr anyone?) and some low scores. Stuart Appleby shot a 59 in the final round to win the tournament in 2010.
A quick scan of the most selected golfers shows Bubba Watson coming out in front. He is in 54% of teams in Yahoo Fantasy Golf and 60% in AVIS PGA Fantasy. Holmes, Reed and Casey make up the next three spots in AVIS, while it's Casey, Reed and DeLaet in Yahoo.
This week the Group C list of players will be rather long. But I feel Tour rookie Tony Finau will make his way onto many teams. He's in solid form and knows that a good finish will grant him entry to the Open Championship. The C group can be a tough one to pick from as there are a lot of golfers to choose, but when selections go wrong it can set you back big time. Last week at the Travelers Championship both our C selections missed the cut (Na and Reed) so I'm just a bit hesitant to select them again.
So without further waffle, here are this weeks selections. As always, players are divided into Yahoo A, B & C groupings. This is the first tournament in the twelve week summer section of that game. While AVIS picks are given at the bottom, and Official PGA allows you to select any four golfers. Good Luck.
