Welcome to Playing the Tips!

 

Each week this will be the one-stop resource to soak in all the picks from our group of fantasy staffers from Rotoworld.com. We’ll have all of our selections from the GolfChannel.com, Yahoo! Fantasy Golf plus my new expanded feature on my weekly selection for One-and-Done players.

Masters

 

 

Glass ($7,878,539; Rank: 5,258)


@MikeGlasscott

 

Wow, what a dumpster fire last week! Dustin Johnson WDs and both course horses Brian Davis and Stuart Appleby couldn’t find the weekend. Keegan Bradley opened with 66 but went nowhere. Plus, ALL FOUR of us had Bradley. That NEVER works out. I need a thank-you note from the boys this week as I hopped off J.B. Holmes and they all enjoyed his T12. But, I did MOP UP at the Kraft-Nabisco as I had Lexi Thompson (winner, winner) and Stacy Lewis (solo third) to move me up a few spots. #alwayslookonthebrightsideoflife

 

Group 1: Rory McIlroy

Group 2: Brandt Snedeker

Group 3: Lee Westwood

Group 4: Fred Couples

 

 

ANALYSIS: McIlroy has been taught enough lessons around here and I like he’s already won two majors. Snedeker was a tough choice in group two but he’s learned, the hard way, what it takes to succeed around here. I’ve gone with straight course form and experience in the final two groups but I’m relying on Day to do the business this week. Plus, I’ve got catching up to do!

 

 

Rob Bolton ($8,533,871; Rank: 3,009)


@RobBoltonGolf

 

Group 1: Adam Scott

Group 2: Brandt Snedeker

Group 3: Gary Woodland

Group 4: John Senden

 

ANALYSIS:  Rob is looking for Scott to join a VERY exclusive club and is hoping that Woodland can keep up the Schwartzel-Watson trend of lesser experienced players doing well.

 

 

Ryan O’ Sullivan ($8,180,973; Rank: 4,087)


@RyanGolfBlogger

 

Group 1: Rory McIlroy

Group 2: Bubba Watson

Group 3: Harris English

Group 4: Marc Leishman

 

ANALYSIS: O is using the “which outsider Aussie is going to win this week” theory on his Group 4 selection. I can’t argue with his top pick and he, like Rob, also went young-inexperienced in Group 3.   

 

 

Ned Brown ($10,764,800; Rank: 173)


@Esoxgolf

 

Group 1: Adam Scott

Group 2: Dustin Johnson

Group 3: Lee Westwood

Group 4: Fred Couples

 

ANALYSIS: Ned keeps rolling along and we're both on the Westwood-Couples exacta this week.
