Ned said, “…

 

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

 

Charles Howell III-- He loves the Sony Open and he has three top 5 finishes in the last four starts here.

 

Tim Clark-- Clark played in only one event in the off season, but that was a T4 at the Nelson Mandela in South Africa. He has a solid record at the Sony with his best finish being a T2 in '11.

 

SUPER SUBS

Brendon de Jonge, Mark Wilson, Jonas Blixt

 

GROUP B

 

Dustin Johnson-- He looked great in Monday at the TOC, where he opened up a three-stroke lead. His record at the Sony is solid, so he will most likely be the favorite when play starts on Thursday.

 

Keegan Bradley-- Played in a couple events in the off-season with the highlight being a second place at the World Challenge. He looked very good on Monday at the TOC, where he was tied for fourth and I think he can improve on the T13 finish that he had at last year's Sony Open.

 

Webb Simpson-- Simpson played OK on Monday at the TOC and his 2-under-par total was good enough for an overnight tie for tenth place. He has made the cut in all four of his starts at the Sony, with his best result being a T9 in '09.

 

K.J. Choi-- I think this spot is a flip of the coin between Choi and Steve Marino. Choi gets the nod because he is a past champion at the Sony ( '08), and despite that Marino has a very good record at the Sony, I would like to see an event or two to see how Marino has rebounded back from his knee injury before I burn a Yahoo! game start.

 

SUPER SUBS

Matt Kuchar, Steve Marino, Carl Pettersson, Davis Love III, Zach Johnson

 

 

GROUP C

 

Scott Piercy-- Piercy played well in the off-season events, which included an impressive T2 the WGC-HSBC Champions. His play on Monday at the TOC was solid and he sat in an overnight ninth place.

 

John Rollins-- I was going with Ryan Moore in this spot, but a rough second round at the TOC had me looking for an alternative. Rollins had a rough end to last season, but he has two top 10s in his last two starts at the Sony, so I'll play the horse for the course angle.

 

SUPER SUBS

Ryan Moore, Brian Gay, Matt Every, Jerry Kelly, Vijay Singh
