PGA Farmers Insurance Open 2015 – Yahoo Fantasy Golf
Our last week in Yahoo Fantasy was ho hum. Nothing to write home about but not terrible either. We haven’t had a lights out week yet, but I feel that one is coming soon. Very soon. Like now.
So to make a long story short. The most important stats this week are: All Around Ranking, Distance, Par 5 Scoring and more proximity to hole than GIR, due to the size of the greens. With that being said, the Greens at Torrey Pines are Poa Annua and are pretty tricky to putt on later in the day because of all the bumps that accumulate. So elite putters seem to play well here too. Guys like Brandt Sneaker and Aaron Baddeley play well here. Top Putters. However, even the short putts get missed here, so sometimes that ‘s in favour of bad putters because others will be missing putts they were going to miss anyway.
A little run down on the course or courses.
This tournament is played over 2 courses, Torrey Pines North and Torrey Pines South.
- Torrey Pines (South) is a 7,698 par-72 layout featuring four par 5s and four par 3s.
- Torrey Pines (North) is a 7,052 par-72 layout featuring four par 5s and four par 3s.
Of these two courses, Torrey Pines South is the only course played on Saturday and Sunday. As you can see above, it’s the much longer of the two courses, so it is a must that a player take advantage on the short North course.
Now onto our picks for are YAHOO FANTASY GOLF TEAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Brooks Koepka – Starter – Fresh off a win, he has all the stat categories needed to win over this course and he’s hell of a putter. He can win back to back. Not much else in Group A to get excited about. He’s on my squad.
Seung Yul Noh – Hits most of the criteria I’m looking for. He’s made all three cuts at the course, including a 10th. In decent form.
Brandt Snedeker – Starter – Has great history and in this format, why not take him here. I can always sub in Fowler.
Graham Delaet – Starter – Played well last week and loves Torrey Pines. Top 10’s here in his last 2. Fits all 5 criteria.
Rickie Fowler – He can win any week and I think he will this week. Everyone is down on him after last week and his missed cut here last year. Before that, he murdered this course.
Hideki Matsuyama – I haven’t used him yet, so I thought why not here. He’s playing well and has all the criteria I’m looking for in a Torrey Pines player. Was 16th here last year.
Justin Thomas – Starter – I’m jumping on board the Thomas train. So hot right now and was 10th here last year.
Keegan Bradley – Can easily win here. Makes cuts and there wasn’t much else I liked in this group.
That’s it for my Yahoo Golf Fantasy Report. I’ll update as I make changes. Time for breakfast. Man am I up early. The things I do for you people. Sheesh.
