Adam Scott shall now be known as “The Phoenix.”
I picked him two weeks ago to win at Quail Hollow. Too bad that was the week he decided he was going to miss his second cut of the season. You won’t believe this one, but go back in the archives and check it out…
I also picked Adam Scott one other time this year. That’s right, the Northern Trust Open, and guess what? Yep, his FIRST cut of the season. No more Adam Scott for me, for his sake and for the sake of my sanity.
Let’s move on to this week's HP Byron Nelson Classic. This is normally a prestigious event, yet this year's field is somewhat lacking in talent. The odds on favorite is Hunter Mahan at or around 16:1 odds. I love Hunter Mahan, but I am not nearly as high on him as most people this week. In six attempts he has missed two cuts and his best finish is a paltry tie for 42nd place in 2008.
TPC Four Seasons at Las Colinas is not the most demanding track on the tour and really does not have any huge advantages for any particular style or type of player. There have been a variety of winners over the past 10 years ranging from superstars Vijay Singh and Sergio Garcia to tour mainstays Brett Wetterich and Rory Sabbatini. It’s anyone’s guess at Las Colinas this week.
As far as Yahoo fantasy goes, my mediocrity continues on. I have now amassed 2633 points on the year. I now trail ALL of the Yahoo experts in the following order; Planer by 20, Vara by 92, Arkush by 125, and Romig by 301. I need some major movement this week to catch Romig at this point. I am still in the 62nd percentile in FOHM and in the 71st percentile overall.
Here is who I am throwing to the wolves this week:
Start Kenny Perry
Sit Scott Verplank
Start Dustin Johnson
Sit Alex Prugh
Start Ben Crane
Sit Rickie Fowler
