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.

Quicken Loans National (QLN)

 

 

Glass ($15,020,327; Rank: 1,010)

Well, when Group 4 is the biggest earner, the week hasn’t gone as planned. Bud Cauley did open with 63 and finish T11. Bubba Watson never fired; Brooks Koepka went in reverse after opening with 65 and Andrew Svoboda didn’t continue his solid run of form. Add all of that up and out of the top 1,000 I go.

 

Group 1: Jason Day

Group 2: Brandt Snedeker

Group 3: Martin Flores

Group 4: Billy Hurley III

 

 

ANALYSIS:  I swore I would never again leave off Woods in the GC game but this week is the exception, not the rule. Jason Day looks on point again as he’s healthy. Snedeker is a bit of chaser here but after back-to-back top 10s and four rounds of par or better last year at Congressional, I’m down. Martin Flores has been on form and Billy Hurley III is the hometown hero who finished T4 here in his only appearance in 2012. Sorry, Bud Cauley. I was THIS close to loading up on you again!

 

 

 

Rob Bolton ($12,467,969; Rank: 5,569)


@RobBoltonGolf

 

Group 1: Jason Day

Group 2: Brendon Todd

Group 3: Brian Harman

Group 4: Bud Cauley

 

ANALYSIS: Rob joins Ned with support of Cauley in Group 4 and goes alone with Todd and Harman in Groups 3 and 4. No surprise Jason Day is in Group 1.

 

 

Ryan O’ Sullivan ($14,327,053; Rank: 1,778)


@RyanGolfBlogger

 

Group 1: Jason Day

Group 2: Brandt Snedeker

Group 3: Ben Martin

Group 4: Billy Hurley III

 

ANALYSIS: All four of O’s picks are listed in my preview column in some way, shape or form. It’s Martin Flores v. Ben Martin for braggin’ rights this week!

 

 

Ned Brown ($16,557,678; Rank: 229)


@Esoxgolf

 

Group 1: Jason Day

Group 2: Brandt Snedeker

Group 3: Aaron Baddeley

Group 4: Bud Cauley

 

ANALYSIS: Ned swung and missed at the Travelers but he had the EXACTA in the U.S. Women’s Open with Stacy Lewis and Michelle Wie. He’s everywhere, folks! He’s going with Cauley THIS week after I had him last week. We match the first two so it’s going to be down to picks three and four. Stop laughing, Ned, I’m TRYING to catch you!
