The TOUR Championship

I play as “Glass” for ALL fantasy games. I violated my rule from earlier in the season last week that I need to always take Woods. Not making that mistake again!

Ned said, “…


Group A


Brandt Snedeker-- I'm out of starts on Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. Both are good plays this week, but Tiger is the stronger play of the two. I'm using Brandt Snedeker here because he is the defending champion at East Lake and he looked good last week at the BMW, where he tied for eighth place.


Sergio Garcia-- He was the 54-hole leader at the DBC (finished T4) and his last three starts at East Lake have been solid with a pair of top 4s and a T15 last year.




Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Jason Dufner



Group B


Jim Furyk-- He became the sixth player on the TOUR to card a round of 59 and his form has been excellent. He has five top 10s at East Lake in his last seven starts, including a championship in '10.


Luke Donald-- He wasn't in form going into the BMW but an impressive final two rounds moved him into a tie for fourth place and an invite to the TOUR Championship. His recent record at East Lake is outstanding with a second place in '10 and T3s in his last two starts.


Hunter Mahan-- Similar to Luke Donald, Hunter Mahan is a player that is rounding into form right now and who has a strong recent record at East Lake of a second place in '11 and a T8 last year.


Justin Rose-- I think this spot is a tossup between Zach Johnson and Justin Rose. Johnson is in better form and won last week at the BMW, but Rose played well last year at the TOUR Championship in a second place finish. Johnson is probably the smarter pick, but I've felt for a while that Rose would do well at the TOUR Championship




Zach Johnson, Matt Kuchar, Nick Watney, Webb Simpson



Group C


Jason Day-- I've run out of starts with Adam Scott, so I'm turning to another Australian in Jason Day.  He looked great last week in his T4 at the BMW and he played well in his last TOUR Championship when he tied for sixth place in '11.


Henrik Stenson-- He seemed to run out of gas last week in his T33 finish at the BMW, but he is still in second place in the FEDEX Cup Points List and a win this week will earn him the FEDEX Cup plus $11.4 million in cash.




Adam Scott, Jordan Spieth
