Ah, Quail Hollow. Where young guns are solidified in the golf community. Last year it was O’Hair labeled as “The Next Big Thing.” Two years ago, it was AK, and this year, it’s Rory “The Future” McIlroy.
As you may or may not know, Poulter, AK and McIlroy are my three favourite golfers so from a personal and fantasy standpoint, I was more than happy with this outcome of this past tournament. Everyone’s been waiting for McIlroy to break though, and I picked him successfully as a sleeper. However, he wasn’t part of my Final Four. Here’s how I fared:
Phil Mickelson – 2
Jim Furyk – T7
Anthony Kim – T7
Tiger Woods – MC
Disappointing for Woods, but with a win by Rors, the spotlight should be on him. Here’s where we stand through three weeks (12 golfers) with 3 Top 10’s and an added MC.
|Final Four Finishes||Wins||Top 10’s||Top 25’s||MC|
|Through 3 weeks||1||4||5||3|
Next week we take on the legendary TPC Sawgrass for the Players. Will Tiger rebound? Will Furyk and AK stay hot? It’s another huge week on tour, so keep it locked on NG Nation.
