Fantasy Golf: The Bridgestone Preview

Lame ass Wednesday afternoon tournament previews are what happen you when kick-off your week by taking an Uber home on Monday night. Kind of starts a domino effect of non-productivity but hey, at least it followed a nice win that advanced me and my partner to the Elite Eight of a six month match-play event. (Go ahead, ask me how I played. I played great. Thanks for asking).

Out of necessity, we're going with a fairly simple approach this week based on our read that all of the big names are currently flawed except for Jordan Spieth and Brooks Koepka. Meanwhile, there's a ton of value in the field's lower mid-section with guys like Kevin Chappell, Kevin Kisner and Jimmy Walker who finally appears to be healthy and is way undervalued. If you're looking for a one and done pick and, like me, you've already wasted all of the top talent elsewhere, take a hard look at Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Charl Schwartzel. Then again, the way I'm going this year, I just doomed them to missing the cut in a no-cut event so maybe take a hard look and the pick someone else.

The One and Done Pick: Charl Schwartzel 
A picture for every occasion.
