Fantasy Golf: AT&T Byron Nelson Preview

Well they up and changed course for this event again dagnabbit. This year we'll be watching the boys play at TPC Craig Ranch which is the centerpiece of the Craig Ranch Community. Yes that may sound like a cult but, judging from the rave reviews on the homeowner's association page, it is nothing like that. These are actual quotes from Craig Ranch homeowners about "Living the Dream" (without grammatical corrections) and really, nothing about them makes you think Stepford situation. I'll let you try to figure-out where the original quote stops and the FGR commentary begins. 

I have lived in Craig Ranch for a year now and so far I have really enjoyed it. I feel like I am far from the big city chaos however Im not far from getting the things I need. My neighbors are friendly and overall, my street is very quiet except for the screaming voices I've had in my head since the new homeowner welcome party. – Craig Ranch Homeowner

As a homeowner I feel like I am kept informed on neighborhood activities, changes in HOA and just "need to know" type stuff. I feel we have a strong HOA that gets things done and I feel confident I always have someone to go to should I have questions or concerns. One time I asked a member of the HOA a question about something that I did not "need to know." I used to have ten fingers and now I have nine but I don't have any more questions. So that's nice. – Craig Ranch Homeowner

There are so many good things yet to come to Craig Ranch and its happening now and very fast! I am very excited with all the new stuff and only look forward to many more new things coming our way. (Please get me out of here . . . I don't know how much longer I can keep them believing I drank the fruit punch at the new homeowner welcome party). - Craig Ranch Homeowner

The area is quiet (except for the screaming voices of course) and on my street I can say that I have a good group of neighbors. I encourage anyone who is looking for a home to visit Craig Ranch. I guarantee you will like what you see. Which is good because you can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave. - Craig Ranch Homeowner


I have a similar recurring dream but in mine I'm a kangaroo that can't jump too good and all of the other kangaroos call me "shithead."


So we have no historical data which makes my job easy this week as I will be guessing along with the rest of you amateurs. Bryson DeChambeau crawled back from the Friday brink last week to finish T9th so I'm on a bit of a mini-roll if you don't count Patrick Reed's missed cut at the Valspar. Which I don't. Because he's a chump. 

Some may remember (but I doubt it) that I picked Scottie Scheffler to win the Valero Texas Open back in March. Well funny thing about that. I didn't actually enter him that week and, after he shot an opening round 68, I pitched a silent fit to myself as I was sure he was going to win without me. But good news, he finished T54th so I'm going to pick him again this week. At least that's the goal.

The rest of the picks are either Texans, guys who play well in Texas or K.H. Lee. Even with D.J. bailing this is a strong field at the top but then the quality falls straight off a cliff after Lee Westwood at $8,500. Where's Cameron Tringale when you need him?

One and Done Pick: Scottie Scheffler
