The other event this week is the Turning Stone Resort Champions, where everyone but the Top 80 in the world will tee it up. Defending champ, Matt Kuchar will not be with us, neither will 2008 champ Dustin Johnson. Also, there’s not a lot of history to go on, as this will only be the events 4th playing.
This is Event 14 of the season and the first event of Month 4 of the NG Nation Fantasy Four and it’s never too late to join. For a refresher on the rules, hit the link — Contest Guidelines and leave your Fantasy Four below.
Also, the WGC-Bridgestone is happening this week too! So submit your fantasy four for that event too! (link here and at the bottom)
NIKE GOLF: Two to Watch
Duval posted a juicy T14 at the Canadian Open and is looking to come off of that with another strong finish. He finished with a final round 65 and looks to build on that this week. MC’s here the last two years
Ames is coming off of a good T21 finish at The Greenbrier and has been pretty hot as of late. 6 of his last 8 rounds have been in the 60’s, which is very important here. The winning score has been super low, so Ames has a good shot.
Other Nike golfers in the field: none

Other notables in the field: Rory Sabbatini, Alex Cejka, Ryuji Imada, Michael Sim, Jeev Milka Singh, Matt Every
FINAL FOUR: Richard S. Johnson, Michael Sim, Charles Howell and David Duval
This was a short and sweet fantasy four. I think Rory is mad he’s not in the Top 80 and might be playing with a chip on his shoulder, so he could win it, actually. I’m really waiting for Michael Sim to break through and I hope he can do it here. I’m just taking chances this week.
