Zurich Classic

 

 

Glass ($8,563,768; Rank: 5,813)


@MikeGlasscott

 

All that prevented my sweet, sweet victory with Luke Donald was Matt Kuchar holing out for birdie on the final hole! Sigh. Kevin Na crashed and burned with MC; Jerry Kelly had a sweet weekend rally and Hicks was inside the top 40 as well so I’m not terribly upset, minus a few tears.

 

Group 1: Graham DeLaet

Group 2: Ryan Palmer

Group 3: J.B. Holmes

Group 4: Lucas Glover

 

 

ANALYSIS: I’m sticking with the first-timers theme again this year at Zurich as I’m leading the line with Canadian Graham DeLaet. This track should fit his game perfectly from tee to green and as previously results have shown, these greens aren’t tricky by any fashion. Patrick Reed and Justin Rose were also considered for this spot but I’m playing catch-up so I’m taking a different angle. I’m continuing to stick with Ryan Palmer as he’s playing excellent golf and will give J.B. Holmes another run-out this week after his solid showing on Hilton Head (T18). I’ll take a flier on Lucas Glover in Group 4 although Ken Looper interests me as well.

 


 

Rob Bolton ($9,023,471; Rank: 4,121)


@RobBoltonGolf

 

Group 1: Rickie Fowler

Group 2: Ryan Palmer

Group 3: J.B. Holmes

Group 4: Andrew Loupe

 

ANALYSIS:  Rob hit two top 10s last week with Jim Furyk and Russell Knox but was victim of the Kevin Na MC. Spencer Levin, like Justin Hicks, shared 38th. We match 2 and 3 this week!

 

 

Ryan O’ Sullivan ($10,034,973; Rank: 1,625)


@RyanGolfBlogger

 

Group 1: Rickie Fowler

Group 2: Kevin Stadler

Group 3: Jonathan Byrd

Group 4: Lucas Glover

 

ANALYSIS: Back-to-back winners for O as he tries to chase Ned down. Rob and I are having our own battle for The Dunce Cap. O is #BIGCLEMSON and it shows this week. Plenty of orange in that team!

 

 

Ned Brown ($11,469,459; Rank: 277)


@Esoxgolf

 

Group 1: Justin Rose

Group 2: Russell Knox

Group 3: George McNeill

Group 4: Lucas Glover

 

 

ANALYSIS: Ned and I got crushed on the Kuchar bunker buster last week as we were both on Donald. This week, we only match Group 4 so IT’S ON!
