The Greenbrier Classic

For the second week in a row I limped home on Sunday as my Group 4 player was my best of the week. Billy Hurley III held his nerve and cashed T8 but it did little to help my cause. Jason Day (MC), Brandt Snedeker (T21) and Martin Flores (MC) hardly factored, especially after Saturday’s 75 from Sneds. I was smart enough to play Brendon Todd in my OAD but NOT smart enough to play him in Group 2. Sigh. Bravo to Rob for bucking the Snedeker trend and bigger Kudos to O for loading up on Ben Martin. Ned took the worst of it as Aaron Baddeley and Bud Cauley MC along with Jason Day. Fantasy golf is hard and I’m heading the WRONG direction in a hurry!

 

Group 1: Jimmy Walker

Group 2: Brendon Todd

Group 3: Steven Bowditch

Group 4: Ted Potter, Jr.

 

 

ANALYSIS:  I can’t argue with the man’s season or his current form so DY-NO-MITE bats leadoff this week. Todd is another easy choice as he keeps on keepin’ on. I read in my notes last year that Bowditch has ties to Greenbrier and has played it a million times but I can’t find my data to confirm that but he did play well, T21, on a tough track last week. I don’t think I would have written it if it wasn’t true. Ted Potter will be in EVERYONE’S Group 4 this week! Davis Love III wouldn’t be a bad stretch either!

 

 

 

Rob Bolton ($12,885,219; Rank: 5,569)


@RobBoltonGolf

 

Group 1: Jimmy Walker

Group 2: Kevin Na

Group 3: Scott Langley

Group 4: Hudson Swafford

 

ANALYSIS: There will be separation this week if Jimmy Walker is not involved as Rob has loaded up on two youngsters plus Kevin Na this week.

 

 

Ryan O’ Sullivan ($14,965,353; Rank: 1,531)

 

@RyanGolfBlogger


Group 1: Jimmy Walker

Group 2: Brendon Todd

Group 3: George McNeill

Group 4: Ted Potter, Jr.

 

ANALYSIS: O is starting to appear in my rear-view mirror so I’m not disappointed that we match Groups 1, 2, and 4. This week it’s Steven Bowditch v George McNeill for the Intercontinental title!

 

 

Ned Brown ($16,705,005; Rank: 319)


@Esoxgolf

 

Group 1: Jimmy Walker

Group 2: Brendon Todd

Group 3: Carl Pettersson

Group 4: Ted Potter, Jr.

 

 

ANALYSIS: Hey, look! Walker, Todd and TPJ! It’d be nice to have one week where the “should bees” actually happen!
