Fantasy Golf: The Zurich Classic Preview

OK let's go ahead and dispense with this thoroughly unpredictable tournament so we can get back to completing work on the 2nd Annual FGR NFL Mock Draft. Let's face it, the last five winners of this thing (Jason Dufner, Bubba Watson, Jason Bohn, Jerry Kelly and Andres Romero) don't exactly establish a trend or a winner's type. At least Dufner has a T3rd and a T7th to go along with his 2012 win in Louisiana so we'll make him the pick, throw-in a shot of a random hottie and get back to figuring-out which poor bastard will be holding-up a Brown's jersey on Thursday night and asking Roger Goodell under his breath, "how long are rookie contracts again?"
"Bring on the mock draft y'all."

The Overall Top Five

1. Jason Dufner
2. Justin Rose
3. Billy Horschel
4. Jimmy Walker
5. Brendon De Jonge

Last Week's Report Card: B

1. Luke Donald - T3rd
2. Matt Kuchar - T35th
3. Billy Horschel - T9th
4. Boo Weekley - T42nd
5. Stewart Cink - T24th

At least I was smart enough to avoid Brandt Snedeker who was a popular pick last week despite the fact that (a) he's more emotional than Dick Vermeil and (b) he had just blown his best shot at a major with a +3 back nine at Augusta. Sneds is going to need a little time to process that one. I just hope he recovers for the British Open where I have him slotted with Ernie Els. For that matter, it'd be nice to see Ernie make a top 10 between now and then. Crap. I may need to reevaluate that strategy altogether.
