Welcome to the big leagues! I always like to take someone between 100-125 here. Even you can be a Heath Slocum.
CHANGES FOR THE FEDEX CUP PLAYOFFS
We’re going big for the FedEx Cup Fantasy Four this year. We have 2 changes to announce;
1. DOUBLE POINTS (Win = 20, Top 10 = 10, Top 25 = 4)
2. NEW PRIZES
- 1st place for this month = Method Core Putter (check out our review here >>)
- 2nd place for this month = 12 Nike ONE Vapor Speed Balls
We’re headed to Plainfield this week, a new venue for the Barclays. History this week will be based on playing well this time of year.
This is the 1st of 4 FedEx Cup Fantasy Four. For a refresher on the rules, hit the link — Contest Guidelines and leave your Fantasy Four below (don’t forget your ONE Nike Athlete).
Lucas Glover (40)
Popular pick last week and walked away with a T30.
Carl Pettersson (55)
Great week, last week. Definitely playing the best golf of the Nike athletes right now.
Stewart Cink (82)
1 Top 10 this year..
Anthony Kim (92)
AK NEEDS a good week. I imagine 8 people can move up and knock him out of the Deutsche Bank…let’s hope he gets it.
Jhonattan Vegas (35)
6 straight made cuts, but hasn’t finished better than T32 in that stretch.
No Tiger, no Casey..and Schwartzel is taking the week off.
I’ll give you a lot more than 4.

Lots of good finishes at the Barclays, too. T9 last year, T14 ’07, 2nd in ’06. Gotta be a favourite this week.

Always hot. Since February, he’s only had 2 finishes outside of the Top 10. (US Open and Open Championship). T8 at the PGA and a T2 at the Bridgestone. He’s money. T5 in ’06. Always good on new courses.
