PGA Farmers Insurance Open 2015 – Golf Channel Fantasy Picks
Our last week in Golf Channel Fantasy were mixed We were lights out in the european tour event, but crappy in the PGA. Overall, Nothing to write home about but not terrible either. This week, it’s different. We’re going to win.
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 Golf Channel Fantasy TEAMS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rickie Fowler – He has great course history here and I think last week was just a warm up from a break. He’ll be back playing golf like he was at the end of last season. He won’t string together 2 crappy performances in a row.
Justin Thomas – He’s just playing too well right now not to take him. He’s finished 10th here and there’s no reason to think he can’t win. This years Spieth.
Brendan Steele – He disappointed some last week by finishing 26th, but that just means, people will lay off here. He has a good track record over this course. he’s playing pretty well coming in and fits most of the criteria needed to excel on this track.
Aaron Baddeley – Solid track record here and seems to be playing some good golf in the past months. A great putter that knows how to get by on these tough greens.
