TPC Four Season Las Colinas…let’s get it poppin’.
This is the last Event of Month 1 (Month 5 overall). For a refresher on the rules, hit the link — Contest Guidelines and leave your Fantasy Four below (don’t forget your ONE Nike Athlete).
Made the cut last week and opened strong. He played consistently, he hits it long and he’s one of the best putters on Tour. He just needs to be accurate off of the tee and he’ll have a shot to win. DNP last year, just missed the cut in ’09 shooting 69-71. T19 here in ’08.
Ames is barely missing cuts. 71-74 at Colonial, 77-68 at TPC Sawgrass..
He finished T16 in ’09, T19 in ’08, T26 in ’06. Not playing that great though.
T4 in ’08, T19 in’07, T21 in ’06 and a T34 in ’04. Not shabby! He’s actually on 4 straight made cuts; T33 at The Players, T9 Wells Fargo, T40 Zurich Classic, T30 Heritage. Pretty solid.
other Nike athletes to choose from :: Kevin Kisner, Joseph Bramlett
recent finishes – 1st Players, T3 Zurich, T8 Masters, T6 API
Last start here in ’07, missed cut. Playing well though!
recent finishes – T16 Crowne Plaza, T12 Players
6 starts on the PGA this year, he’s averaging 19th place and hasn’t finished worse than T35. Money in the bank folks. Sergio won here in 2004. Last start here was T19 in ’07. Needs a big week, too, but pulled out of The Open qualifying because of a finger infection.
recent finishes – T16 Crowne Plaza, T19 Players
He’s not necessarily hot, but his last 3 rounds at Colonial were in the 60’s. He seems to have his form back. At this event he’s finished 25 in ’07, T19 in ’06 and 2nd in ’05.
recent finishes – 2nd Crowne Plaza, T41 Players, T16 Zurich
6 straight made cuts, but he was on fire at Colonial. Cut here last yaer after a 69-72, T23 here in ’09, T7 here in ’08. Pretty good stuff. David Toms all over again?
best finishes – 1st in ’10
Day won last year based on recent play, and that was the first time he made the cut at Las Colinas. He’s playing well and was a very popular pick last week. He’ll bounce back this week and should be up there with DJ and Watney.
best finishes – T7 in ’10, T4 in ’09
DJ started May on the European with a T4 a few weeks ago and then a T57 at the Players. However, DJ with a few weeks off is one I may not trust. Last year, he got his good finishes on a hot streak and bounced back from poor finishes. I don’t see that as much this year. Prove me wrong, DJ.
best finishes – T5 in ’10, 1st in ’07, T6 in ’05, T14 in ’04, 4th in ’03, 2nd in ’01
Hasn’t missed a cut this year. 2 Top 10’s in his last 4 starts..seems to alternate Top 30’s with Top 50’s…indicates a good week for Verplank. Well rested, too.
best finishes – 1st in ’09, T3 in ’07, T14 in ’05, T21 in ’04
He could have made the Hot List this week, actually. His last 3 starts; T16 at Colonial, T26 at The Players, 3rd at Wells Fargo. Has a good history in odd number years, too!
Alan :: Nick Watney, John Senden, Brian Gay and Stephen Ames
Bob :: K.J. Choi, Charlie Wi, Jason Day and Carl Pettersson
Damian :: Nick Watney, Matt Kuchar, Brian Gay and Anthony Kim
Really hard not to take Dustin Johnson, Charlie Wi and Sergio here..but I think Kuchar will walk away with the win. Pettersson is probably the safest Nike pick, if one exists.
Other big names in the field :: Matt Kuchar, Ben Crane, Nick Watney, Brian Gay, Robert Allenby, Marc Leishman, Jeff Overton, Spencer Levin, Vijay Singh, Brandt Snedeker, Jason Dufner, Gary Woodland, Angel Cabrera
