PGA Farmers Insurance Open 2015 – PGATour.com Fantasy Golf

PGA Farmers Insurance Open 2015 – PGATour.com Fantasy Golf

Our last week in Pgatour.com fantasy was almost spot on thanks to Brooks Koepka. We finished high and we are aiming for the stars once more.

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 Pgatour.com 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.

Jason Day – One of the best in the world and he loves it here. Two top 10’s in his last two and hopefully injury free for the first time in awhile. Australians can putt and he is no different.

Hideki Matsuyama – Has played here once and finished 16th. He fits the criteria I’m looking for on this course and he’s coming in off a hot 2nd at the Phoenix Open.

Graham Delaet – He has 2 top 10’s here in his last two trips and he’s coming in off a nice finish at he Phoenix. Very Dangerous and could finally win on tour. Deadly with his irons.

Hope you all enjoyed this little tiny piece. Go check out more in depth write ups on players we like on our golf picks page. Our DraftKIngs Tiered picks is where it’s at.

Have a most excellent day!

PGATour.com Fantasy – Waste Management Phoenix Open 2015 – Daily Fantasy Golf

PGATour.com Fantasy – Waste Management Phoenix Open 2015 – Daily Fantasy Golf

The Waste Management Phoenix Open may be the most exciting final 4 holes in golf. There are 2 eagle opportunities with the Par 5,15th and the short par 4, 17th. Throw in the raucous crowd at the par 3, 16th, and you have a recipe for noise and mayhem coming down the stretch at the TPC Scottsdale.

The course is a Par 71, measuring 7216 yards, with 79 sand bunkers which are strategically placed around the greens and on the fairways. There are also 6 holes which feature water, including 3 of the last 4 holes.

Scoring is generally low, so players can be aggressive on this course, however they have to pick their moments as several holes can jump up and bite you hard. Looking at the past 10 winners they have averaged -18, so expect the same this year unless the weather is out of the ordinary.

In 2014, Kevin Stadler and Graham DeLaet finished 1-2, both players are horrible putters. When you go down the past leaderboards and take a look at the top 60-70 putters on tour from 2014, you’ll only see something just larger than a handful of them on both lists. However, if you look at the top 60-70 GIR players on Tour, you’ll see Stadler, Delaet Watson, Howell, Moore, Steele, Hoffman, Haas, Stanley, Mahan, Dufner and many more.

So unlike most tournaments, putting doesn’t matter as much here. Some years, of course hot putters bring home the championship, but here, in many cases, the top is riddled with players who were just average putters for the week.


This explains why being a precise iron player and a long hitter is beneficial at the Phoenix Open. If you can dominate the Par 5’s and the short par 4 all week, that’s half your score, and that gives you a chance for a win.

PGATour.com Fantasy Picks – Hyundai Tournament Of Champions 2015

We’ve entered the PGATOUR.COM fantasy contest, making it our third full year fantasy event. We’re starting with the Hyundai Tournament of Champions 2015 and I won’t bore you with the details from previous posts that we already know.

In this event, we take 4 guys, no bench and we can only take a player at a max 10 times during the year. Since this is such a small event, I’m going all stars here. I’m not pulling any punches right off the bat.

I’m going Bubba Watson, Matt Kuchar, Jason Day and Jimmy Walker.

I don’t think any of these need and explanation. Their names speak for themselves.
