Will he make it three in a row?

Okay, we’ve had five tournaments so far in 2011.  Mark Wilson has won two of them!  This is truly amazing considering some of the field strengths that we have seen so far.

I always knew Mark Wilson was a player who could have his moments, but I never would have predicted him to win two events in a year. I think we still have 30+ weeks to go, if I’m not mistaken. Congrats Mark Wilson.

This week we are off to one of the all-time greats, Pebble Beach California.  There will be two rounds played on Pebble, one on Spyglass Hill and one on Monterrey Peninsula.

All of the courses are tough and rank just above the middle of the road compared to the courses endured over the entire season. 

Pebble Beach is not a long course, yet it does demand some serious shot making ability. Spyglass Hill with its 147 slope rating is no walk in the park yet it can be somewhat of a Jekyll-and-Hyde type course.

It has its easier holes, but some of the fairways that have been sliced through the forest can be tough to navigate, giving advantage to those who are accurate from the tee.

Putting on all three courses should be a bit slower than what they were experiencing last week in the desert. This opens the door somewhat for the average putters and swings it wide open for the accomplished rollers of the flat stick.

It’s almost impossible not to envision Dustin Johnson raising his third consecutive victory trophy here at Pebble Beach.  The field for a pro-am however is quite strong. There will be many top names gunning for Dustin’s trophy. Let’s run down my Yahoo fantasy plays for this week after we review the standings.

Last week, I raked in a paltry 112 points. I maintained my lead over all of the Yahoo experts however I slipped in the rankings. In the overall group I dropped eight huge points down into the 77th percentile.

In my group, The Fans of Hunter Mahan, I dropped six giant points slipping into the 73rd percentile. As previously mentioned, I am edging out the experts.  I have Vara by two points, Planer by 35, Romig by 22 and Arkush by ten.

 

Here is this week’s starting lineup for Yahoo Fantasy:

 

GROUP A



Start

Phil Mickelson

Dustin Johnson





GROUP B



Start

Hunter Mahan

Vijay Singh


Tim Clark


Bo Van Pelt





GROUP C

Let’s crack open a nice fresh six-pack and hit a winner.  We happened to catch Vijay Singh in a tie for fifth last week (known as a T5) which yielded a respectable return of 16.5:1
