Another fun week on Tour with a lot of young guns and some low rounds by good players.
Everyone’s picks were decent. There were glimmers of hope by Mahan (+5 in the Final Round hurts) and Sabbatini, but I think it was another hard week to pick. Justin Leonard hurt with a T26, but at least he made the cut. Here’s how my Fantasy Four fared;
Hunter Mahan – T50 (0 pts)
Justin Leonard – T26 (0 pts)
Sean O’Hair – T12 (2 pts)
Scott Verplank – T5 (5 pts + 2 pts)
I’m pretty happy with my week. I thought Slocum and Crane would do well, and they did. Cink was the only Nike Golfer to pick up any points with a T25.
There were 4 DQ’d entries (3 late and 1 didn’t have a Nike golfer), but they wouldn’t have won this week.
This week’s winner is Lendell, who is a close second for the season and has a chance to win the monthly price. The winning team was Verplank, Crane, Mahan and Petterson with a pair of Top 10’s.
Below are the fantasy results from the Byron Nelson Championship and the overall season;
Meredith holds a slim lead. Only one week left for this month’s contest (for a dozen Nike ONE Vapors) and it’s still anyone’s race. A win and a couple top 10’s is a lot of points and the field is stacked next week at the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
