Both Matt Kuchar and Dustin Johnson are among my final golf fantasy picks this season along with Phil Mickelson and Charley Hoffman.

All four of these players had fine seasons and Kuchar is my pick to win the Fed Ex Cup in the PGA this season.

He has the upper hand at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta Georgia where he has many rounds under his belt.

It's my guess that any player with a third win in 2010 would be hard pressed to not get the PGA Player of the year award.

Ernie Els, Dustin Johnson, Steve Stricker, and Matt Kuchar all are in the hunt for that prize, as well as a fellow from England named Justin Rose and perhaps a couple others as well.

Martin Laird has a shot as well, with four good rounds as we saw earlier in the PGA Championship.

If a Major winner grabs an extra trophy, that might be enough to propel that particular player to the PGA Player of the Year award.

On the back-burner in fantasy the bench players for the final week are Ernie Els, Hunter Mahan, Adam Scott and Justin Rose.

Adam Scott has been playing well lately and I would not be surprised to see him win this week if he can somehow putt.

Next on the golf agenda will be the exciting Ryder Cup action as the U.S. squad takes on the Europeans overseas in October.

That will be great to see if certain players can rise up, dust themselves off and play some intense iron shots once more.

Good luck Tiger.
