Ned Brown is a long-time contributor for Rotoworld Golf.  He’s had documented success in Yahoo!’s game for years.  Even if you’re confident in your selections for that game, give his insight a read.  Now, Ned also provides us with his GolfChannel.com Fantasy Challenge selections as well!

 

Full Disclosure:  I am NOT Ned! He’s smarter and better looking!

 

Group A

 

Brandt Snedeker-- A great run in the FedExCup Playoffs resulted in a FedExCup Championship. He did play in a couple of off-season events and he played well. His only start at Kapalua was in '08 when he tied for tenth place.

 

Jason Dufner-- This is the first time that Dufner has played in Kapalua, but he played well in the off-season and I was impressed with his performance at the WGC-HSBC Champions where he tied for second place.

 

SUPER SUBS

Bubba Watson, Bill Haas, Jonas Blixt

 

Group B

 

Steve Stricker-- Stricker made news this week by saying that he is thinking of playing in only ten events on this year's TOUR. As a result, you don't have to worry about rationing starts in the Yahoo! game. His recent record here is outstanding with four consecutive top 10s, which is highlighted by last year's championship.

 

Dustin Johnson-- Like Snedeker, Johnson had an outstanding run of top tens in each of the four FedExCup Playoff events. He didn't play that well in the off-season events, but his solid history at the Hyundai TOC makes him a good start this week.

 

Matt Kuchar- Kuchar did nothing in the FedExCup Playoffs until he tied for tenth at THE TOUR Championship. He played well in the off-season events, but what caught my eye was in his last two starts at Kapalua he has a third place ('10) and a tie for sixth ('11).

 

Webb Simpson-- He had a nice T5 at TOUR Championship, but he only played in Tiger's event in the off season. I'm going with him mostly because of his T3 last year at the TOC.

 

SUPER SUBS

Keegan Bradley, Nick Watney, Zach Johnson, Carl Pettersson

 

 

Group C

 

 

Ian Poulter-- Poulter lit it up in the off-season events with a fourth at the BMW Masters, a championship at the WGC-HSBC Champions and a second place at the Talisker Masters. He has played at Kapalua only once, but it was good for a tie for sixth place ('10).

 

Ryan Moore--Moore play very well in the FedExCup Playoffs, with three top 10s including a T3 at THE TOUR Championship. Like Poulter, Moore's only stop at Kapalua resulted in a T6 finish ('09).

 

SUPER SUBS

Rickie Fowler, Scott Piercy
