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.

Wells Fargo Championship

 

 

Glass ($9,240,428; Rank: 4,579)


@MikeGlasscott

 

Well, at least I didn’t get beat by a chip-in for the second week in a row! #Alwayslookonthebrightsideoflife. Anyhow, Delaet only made FOUR bogeys but finished in T29. Palmer didn’t make the cut as he was too busy hanging with his boy Sean Payton. J.B. Holmes flew the flag this week as his T11 was my biggest earner. This result will be thrown out of the spring segment so I moved up a bit this week.

 

Group 1: Rory McIlroy

Group 2: Lee Westwood

Group 3: J.B. Holmes

Group 4: Jonathan Byrd

 

 

ANALYSIS: Plenty from the premium pile to select from this week but I’m going with young McIlroy to rack up another big finish at Quail Hollow. I’m excited to get two of my three top players this week as Lee Westwood, by virtue of world ranking, is in Group 2 this week. J.B. Holmes is on a fantastic run so he takes up Group 3 again this week and I’ll try another Clemson Tiger in Group 4 this week with 2011 runner up Jon Byrd. Lucas Glover was tempting again this week but enough is enough.

 

 

Rob Bolton ($9,383,378; Rank: 4,117)


 @RobBoltonGolf


Group 1: Rory McIlroy

Group 2: Lee Westwood

Group 3: Robert Karlsson

Group 4: Jason Gore

 

ANALYSIS:  Rob was hit by the MC bug with Fowler and Palmer in Groups 1 and 2 but Holmes and Loupe cashed for him Groups 3 and 4 last week. This result, like mine, will be thrown out and he’ll try and rebound this week with homeslice Robert Karlsson as the zig after zagging with McIlroy and Westwood in Groups 1 and 2.

 

 

Ryan O’Sullivan ($11,137,802; Rank: 770)


@RyanGolfBlogger

 

Group 1: Rory McIlroy

Group 2: Lee Westwood

Group 3: J.B. Holmes

Group 4: Jonathan Byrd

 

ANALYSIS: After back-to-back winners, O came crashing back to earth with Fowler, Stadler and Byrd all MC. Lucas Glover’s T62 ensured that this score will be thrown on the dumpster fire as last week shaped up to be a tough one in fantasy land. O tries for three wins from four with the EXACT SAME four I have! Should he be pissed or should I be elated? Check back Sunday!!!

 

 

Ned Brown ($12,020,119; Rank: 270)


@Esoxgolf


Group 1: Rory McIlroy

Group 2: Lee Westwood

Group 3: J.B. Holmes

Group 4: Jonathan Byrd

 

 

ANALYSIS: Ned went with the highest ranked player in the field and he finished T8 to take away the pain from MCs from Knox and McNeill. There’s a lesson in that last sentence as to why he’s ranked in the top 200 of this game, gamers. This week, Ned joins the party and matches Glass and O 1-4! We’re going to be GREAT or absolutely awful! #hangon!
