Paradise Found

One-and-Done

  

SEASON TOTAL: $287,474

 

 

Frys.com: Gary Woodland, MC. Well, at least I don’t have to worry about when I’m using GARY WOODLAND again!

 

SHFC Open: Hideki Matsuyama. Time to break through, son. Matsuyama WD with injury so he was replaced with Nick Watney. He finished T48 for $15,264

 

CIMB Classic: Let’s try this again: Hideki Matsuyama. There’s no cut. This pleases me. His T25 after 74 on Sunday does not please me. Oh well. Here’s $53,433 into the piggy bank.

 

WGC-HSBC: Martin Kaymer. There’s no other place I would consider using him and he’s the defending champ on this track. #hangsonfordearlife. Kaymer’s third round 62 dared me to dream but his T8 and $161,667 is a nice deposit.

 

The McGladrey Classic: David Toms. He’s finished T3 in 2010 and second last year. His recent form suggests he’s playing well and I don’t see another chance to burn him down the road. It was him or CH III. Well, BOTH of my selections finished T27. I should have listened to O…T27 was good for $39,050.

 

OHL Mayakoba: Brian Gay. When form meets course history…  Well, that was a nice theory but it resulted in T45 and $18,060. I’m glad 2013 is now over.

 

HTOC: Martin Laird. Since I’m off to a woeful start I see no reason to burn a premium player. Chris Kirk was my second choice but nobody wins in back-to-back starts plus he’s just had another child. Laird is the horse-for-course.

 

 

GolfChannel.com Fantasy Challenge: HTOC

I trashed the group in the final six events of 2013 highlighted by having Harris English in Group 1 at Mayakoba.

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.

 

GROUP A

 

Adam Scott-- Scott has been red hot in the off-season and came very close to being only the second golfer ever to win Australia's Triple Crown. He has three top 10 finishes in five starts here and is the odds on favorite this week.

 

Matt Kuchar-- He was almost as hot as Scott in the off-season. Kuchar notched a second place the Talisker, a fourth place in the World Cup of Golf, a T3 at the World Golf Challenge and a championship with Harris English at the Franklin Templeton Shootout. His recent history at the TOC is good with three consecutive top 10s.

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Ryan Moore, Brandt Snedeker

 

GROUP B

 

Dustin Johnson-- It was a very nice off-season for Johnson with his first WGC title at the WGC HSBC Champions. He is also the defending champion here from last year's wind-shortened event.

 

Webb Simpson--Simpson followed his fourth place at the TOUR Championship, with a championship at the Shrines Children's Open and he played well at the McGladrey where he tied for seventh place. His only off-season even was Tiger's World Golf Challenge, where he finished in solo fifth place. His best finish in two starts at the TOC was a T2 in '12.

 

Zach Johnson-  Normally I wouldn't use Zach Johnson here, but I thought he looked really good last time out when he defeated Tiger Woods in his Northwestern Mutual World Golf Challenge.

 

Martin Laird-- Laird is a bit of a reach here because he wasn't playing well at the end of the year, but his record at the TOC is very impressive of a T4 in '10 and a second place in '21.

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Jason Dufner, Bill Haas, Chris Kirk

 

GROUP C

 

Harris English-- English is a first-timer at Kapalua, but he is red hot right now with back-to-back championships at the Mayakoba and the Franklin Templeton Shootout.

 

Jimmy Walker-- Another first time player at the TOC, but after winning the Frys.com Open, he followed it up with a T12 at the Shiners and a sixth place at the CIMB Classic.
