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.

THE PLAYERS

 

 

Glass ($10,803,278; Rank: 1,602)


@MikeGlasscott

 

J.B. Holmes was my biggest earner for the second week in a row and thankfully this week it was a victory! I moved up almost 3,000 places in the game and made over $1.5 million for the week and that was with only three players as Westwood crapped out. McIlroy was T8 and Jon Byrd was T14 on top of Holmes’ victory. Too bad O had the exact same lineup! No ground was made up! We’ll try again this week to crack the code!

 

Group 1: Rory McIlroy

Group 2: Jim Furyk

Group 3: Ryan Palmer

Group 4: Erik Compton

 

 

ANALYSIS: This is the toughest week to pick because of the loaded field but I’m hooking my wagon up to McIlroy again as he keeps bombing fairways and hitting plenty of GIR. If his putter shows up for NINE HOLES this week he could win by a handful. Jim Furyk is as hot as anyone on TOUR not named Matt Kuchar and the Ponte Vedra Beach resident has plenty of experience here. Ryan Palmer hits it a mile and is top 10 GIR so that works for me and Erik Compton loves golf in Florida and is in the middle of a career year. After last week’s monster, I’m expecting a massive, massive dumpster fire this week. Be afraid!

 

 

Rob Bolton ($9,583,478; Rank: 4,539)


@RobBoltonGolf

 

Group 1: Matt Kuchar

Group 2: Luke Donald

Group 3: J.B. Holmes

Group 4: Erik Compton

 

ANALYSIS:  The only one of the four amigos not to have J.B. Holmes in the lineup last week, he’ll pop him in this week. Rob and Ned match the first three picks so we’ll see what karma they have! Rob and I match Compton in group four.

 

 

Ryan O’Sullivan ($12,700,652; Rank: 209)


@RyanGolfBlogger


Group 1: Adam Scott

Group 2: Zach Johnson

Group 3: J.B. Holmes

Group 4: Ben Crane

 

ANALYSIS: Make it three winners in four from O as our matched sides cashed for over $1.5 million this week. He’s throwing Holmes right back into the fire and going with course horse Ben Crane to go along with Scott and Johnson. He’s on #mayjahfiyah in every game we play. BravO!

 

 

Ned Brown ($13,582,969; Rank: 64)


@Esoxgolf

 

Group 1: Matt Kuchar

Group 2: Luke Donald

Group 3: J.B. Holmes

Group 4: Martin Flores

 

 

ANALYSIS: I suggested last week since O, Ned and I all matched four players that we would be absolutely awful or absolutely fantastic. We’ve all taken a deep breath and enjoyed our bounty. This week only Ned and O match one pick as I’m out in left field, picking daisies again.
