One and Done | WGC Bridgestone Invitational 2017 | Fantasy Golf
Tony Finau was in striking distance going into the last day and we knew that he wouldn’t win after he parred the Par 5 second hole of round 4. At that point we were just hoping he could have a nice cash and he did with a nice eagle on 18. He finished 5th and we inched a little bit closer to the leader but are still 6th n our one and done. This week has been an exhausting search for our pick and we’ve gone back and forth forever. With only 7 weeks left in the season and trying to figure out who to save for where etc. This week just feels off. We believe Spieth is so hot that he’s going to win anywhere. Most thin he doesn’t have the right game for this place, but he’s just playing too well to not think he’s going to win. Anyway, we can’t take him again. So read below for our weekly pick.
PLAYERS USED SO FAR: Tony Finau, Jordan Spieth, Danny Lee, David Lingmerth, Ollie Schniederjans, Justin Thomas, Louis Oosthuizen, Phil Mickelson, Byeong Hun An, Wes Bryan, Brooks Koepka, Martin Kaymer, Bill Haas, Kevin Chappell, Kevin Kisner, Rory Mcilory, Rickie Fowler, Matt Kuchar, Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia, Adam Scott, Dustin Johnson, Brandt Snedeker, Hideki Matsuyama, Patton Kizzire, Chris Kirk, Jon Rahm.
Now for our pick.
Here’s a guy that plays well on Par 70’s, Difficult courses, and has been Top 10 in 5 of his last 10 majors. He’s playing the best golf of his season right now, so we like his form coming in off a 6th place at the British Open. Yes, he had one amazing round, but he still finished 6th. His one win on American soil was at the Heritage, which is a pretty hard track to hit fairways on, but he was able to win there. He’s solid off the tee and from tee to green as well. He avoids bogeys too. A very good hitter from 200 yards plus and he’s been a middling putter this year, but we know he can be better. Please also note when looking at his stats, that he’s usually only playing against top fields in America at some difficult courses. So some stats may be skewed.
