Last week was a treat and this week should be much of the same…too bad the SuperBowl is in the away. Yet again we have Bubba, Phil, DJ, AK, Haas, Vegas, Fowler and Mahan in the mix. Should be awesome, as always.
This is Event 5 (first event of Month 2) of the NG Nation Fantasy Four Contest and it’s never too late to join, as their are monthly and season prizes.
For a refresher on the rules, hit the link — Contest Guidelines and leave your Fantasy Four below (don’t forget your ONE Nike Athletes).

T51 in his season debut last week at Farmers. CUT here last year, T42 in ’09, T58 in ’08, T20 in ’07, T20 in ’06. There’s a little bit to like here, but a big sleeper.
I don’t think I need to say anything. The kid is 1st in the FedEx Cup race.
Great first 3 rounds for AK, yet he picked up a T6 at Farmers keeping his hot streak alive (T19 at HTOC and T13 at the Sony Open). T24 here last year, CUT in ’09, T30 in ’08. I think he’ll get a top 5.
other Nike athletes to choose from :: Stephen Ames, Jamie Lovemark, Carl Pettersson, Kevin Kisner (alternate)
recent finishes – 1st at Farmers
Bubba will thrive in this environment. T36 here last year, T25 in ’09. Not too shabby.
Charles Howell III
recent finishes – T14 at Farmers, T13 at Bob Hope
Howell is playing well, but he’s played this course a lot. 4th here last year, Top 25’s in ’08 and ’07 too. Good sleeper for this week.
recent finishes -T9 at Farmers, T2 at Bob Hope, 8th at HTOC
T9 here in ’08. He’s bound to break through…or just get frustrated and play worse. Gotta like 3 straight Top 10’s though!
best finishes – 1st in ’06, 1st in ’08, T43 last year
Coming off of a T63 last week, I think he’s going to have a good week, to be honest. He followed up both of his wins with Missed Cuts here, so I wouldn’t worry about it. He is a huge sleeper and should feel right at home
best finishes – 1st last year, T35 in ’08, T9 in ’05
Coming off of a T6 last week and a T25 in the HTOC I would look for Mahan to get a Top 15 this week. He’s a streaky player and should do well this week.
best finishes – 1st in ’96, 1st in ’05, T7 in ’04, T7 in ’06, 2nd in ’08, T24 in ’10
In ’96, Phil finished 2nd at Torrey Pines then won the FBR Open…same situation, 15 years later, I think Phil will get the win.
best finishes – 1st in ’89, 1st in ’92, 1st in ’01, T9 in ’05, T20 in ’08, T43 in ’10
You may think he’s a longshot, but he had a T33 earlier this year at the Bob Hope and shot in the 60’s all 5 rounds. Sleeper city.
SUPER SLEEPER OF THE WEEK
(T33 at Bob Hope, CUT in ’10, T4 in ’09, CUT in ’08, T8 in ’07, 19 in ’06, T4 in ’05, T11 in ’03, T9 in ’01…just an insane track record here)
Alan :: Jeff Overton, Phil Mickelson, Sean O’Hair and Anthony Kim
Bob :: Brandt Snedeker, Kenny Perry, Jhonattan Vegas and Anthony Kim
Damian :: Jeff Overton, Phil Mickelson, Kevin Na and Anthony Kim
I think Rickie Fowler may actually be a sleeper, with DJ and Phil as the favourites to win. I would put AK and Mahan right behind DJ and Phil..and Haas deserves some love, too..but who knows!? That’s why they play the game! Villegas may be a good look this week, too.
