Rory McIlroy put on quite the show last week, didn’t he? Coming off what many considered a mediocre season, McIlroy showed his might with an amazing win after barely making the cut on Friday.
Congrats, Rory. He becomes yet another 50:1 odds winner this year.
On to The Players Championship, where Davis Love III is the last man to win the event twice. He won here in 1992 and then again in 2003. Love III is not in the sixer this week, but I found it interesting that he was the last to win multiple times at this place. That stat definitely factored into my decision making process this week.
The TPC Stadium course at Sawgrass is a classic bear.
It can chew you up and spit you out with just one bad hole. It also is one of my all time favorite courses through all the years of PS1,2, and now PS3’s Tiger Woods PGA Tour Golf.
I’m coming off another fairly blah week on Yahoo fantasy.
I now have a total of 2,406 points on the year. I went up to the 73rd percentile overall and maintained status in my FOHM group at a paltry 64th percentile. I now lead one of the Yahoo experts, Eric Planer, by 44 points. I trail Arkush by 87, Vara by 129 and Romig by 256 points. It’s time to get crackin’.
Here’s who I like this week:
Start Ernie Els
Sit Luke Donald
Start Jim Furyk
Sit Kevin Na
Bo Van Pelt
Start Matt Kuchar
Sit Paul Casey
Here are some honorable mentions before we tackle the six pack: Harrington 25:1, Poulter 25:1, Kuchar 66:1, Crane 80:1, Davis 150:1, Quinney 200:1
