Fantasy Golf: The Houston Open Preview

Well it's our last FGR tournament preview before America potentially starts making the rounds and saying its goodbyes at the cocktail party of democracy. At least we know that professional golf will carry-on as one of the preferred sports of our fascist rulers whether it be under the guidance of the PGA Tour Ministries or a bunch of Saudi oil billionaires led by a thin-skinned Australian parody of himself. Strange days indeed. 

So let's have some fun before John Lithgow shows-up and makes music illegal. (Editor's note: It now appears that none of this is going to happen. At least not yet).  


Hopefully this tweet will still be live by the time you watch it because once you've heard Richard Pryor say "yeah come on PECKER HEAD" in his white guy voice, your life will be forever changed for the better. Unless you're Elon Musk who probably thinks he's talking about him (which he is).


Last week's picks were a tad uninspired and uninspiring but to be honest, it doesn't make much of a difference in a Russell Henley week. About once every three years, Russell decides to be the best golfer in the world for four days and we have no idea where or when that's going to happen. It's harder to predict than the mood of your 15 year old daughter which can range from happy cuddling puppies to Godzilla after he just stepped barefoot on a Lego. 

Scottie Scheffler finished tied for 2nd here last year so he's probably the logical choice which is why we're going with Sam Burns who finished T7 the last TWO years which is better than one. We're also going to keep riding the Aaron Wise train until we inevitably forget to buy a ticket and he wins the week we don't pick him. Keep an eye out for that because you know we won't. 

The rest of the picks are stacked with FGR all-stars from Maverick McNealy and Joel Dahmen to Patrick Rodgers and Beau Hossler. Sooner or later these guys are going to find some damn chemistry and put it together for us. Maybe if Joel would just stop eating Maverick's leftover Chipotle. Seriously, who does that?
