Fantasy Golf: The Travelers Preview

Bubba Watson won the Travelers Championship in 2010 and he should have won it again last year but he finished two shots back after dumping his tee shot into the water on 16 and making a triple bogey. Judging by his reaction, it was his caddie's fault for helping him pick the club that he used to hit his ball into the water. I was on the fence about Bubba until that moment. I am not anymore but I never let my personal preferences impair my picking ability (yeah right) so Bubba has a chance to redeem himself in my eyes this week. I'm sure that's just the motivation he needs. By the way, we're giving Matt Kuchar the week off even though he refuses to take one himself. If he was your coworker, you'd be telling him to slow down and stop making everyone else look bad by now.

Footnote

* In an effort to accomplish something that is not immediately clear, the Golf Channel occasionally tacks-on a European or women's event to its weekly fantasy game. This week they have included the women's U.S. Open so the picks in the sidebar include the FGR's selections from the Golf Channel's four categories for that event. I actually spent five minutes doing research on it so don't ever say I'm not here for you . . . because I am.
