Fantasy Golf: The BMW Championship Preview

We have two weeks left in the season and, now that Rory appears to be putting better than a blind cave fish (it's on the internet so I know it's a real thing), it looks like we could finally be on the verge of that multi car pile-up of great players that we've been denied all season. To qualify, I think we need a minimum of three out of the fifteen players on the odds list below (excluding anyone who hasn't won a major) within two shots of each other when they hit the 14th hole on Sunday. And there can be no more than one player not on that list gumming-up the works so stay the hell out of my Sunday afternoon dream sequence David Lingmerth and Jim Herman!

As for the predictions, who knows? I mean trying to pick between Rory, Jason Day, D.J., Adam Scott and Patrick Reed (blech . . . just writing his name gives me a post-puke taste in my mouth) is like trying to pick the hottest cast member from Melrose Place (hey I was young and no one had figured-out how to make shows like The Sopranos and The Wire yet). Anyway, my advice is to build a bunch of really top heavy teams and then roll the dice on some quality scrubs like Ryan Palmer and Daniel Summerhays (no offense). For example, you can fit those guys in with Day, Scott and Hideki Matsuyama if you can also stomach a roster that includes Jon Curran (again, no offense).
