Crazy week in Canada, once again. Big names like O’Hair and Casey missed the cut, while Luke Donald remains red hot. He’s right up there with Westwood in my mind. The Canadians also disappointed on home soil, leaving Carl Pettersson room for a remarkable weekend in Ontario.
The stats these week tell the tale with many missed cuts and lots of picks for Paul Casey, who was clearly tired from The Open. However, Charlie Wi is heating up and steady players such as Donald, Kuchar and Clark help certain people pick up the win. There were 20 different golfers this week, as opposed to the regular 19. I guess it’s hard to get a lot of variation, as everyone wants a sure thing.

Meredith is on fire. She’s like the Luke Donald of the NG Nation Fantasy Four Contest. Meredith’s last three entries have been T1, T1 and a solo 2nd. It’s basically a wrap unless we see some phenomenal picks for the Greenbriar next week. She takes the lead for the season, also. Check below for the monthly and season standings.
My advice is to go wild next week and maybe everyone should pick after Meredith next week. However, the field is somewhat slim next week, but the purse is big as the PGA introduces a new event, the Greenbrier Classic!
Early standouts for next week: Carl Pettersson, Jim Furyk, Sergio Garcia, Nick Watney, Matt Kuchar, Charlie Wi, Trevor Immelman and Katy Perry.
