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.

RBC Canadian Open

 

 

Glass ($17,288,448; Rank: 1,014)


@MikeGlasscott

 

I almost pocketed $1.4 million last week as Adam Scott was T5, Sergio Garcia T2, Francesco Molinari T15 and Robert Karlsson was T12. Not bad for not having the winner!

 

That’s better.

 

I moved up over 500 spots to keep the pressure on O and try and catch the mythical Ned Brown at the top.

 

Group 1: Dustin Johnson

Group 2: Charley Hoffman

Group 3: Chad Campbell

Group 4: Patrick Rodgers

 

 

ANALYSIS:  The toughest selection came down to Johnson v Furyk in Group 1. I went with the bomber as I believe he can overpower a course of this length regardless of rough. Charley Hoffman’s excellent 2014 rolls on as I’ll ride his spring-summer form over the Canadians who have all the pressure. Hunter Mahan would be a safe play but with zero top 10s since March, I’ll pass. Group 3 doesn’t leave many choices that jump off the page so I went with a proven ball-striker who has been in form. Group 4 is my wild card for the week as I had to bookend my team with some youth.

 

 

 

Rob Bolton ($13,987,319; Rank: 7,685)


@RobBoltonGolf

 

Group 1: Jim Furyk

Group 2: Tim Clark

Group 3: Chad Campbell

Group 4: Adam Hadwin

 

ANALYSIS: The first of three to put Furyk in the No. 1 spot, Bolton fires out with the experienced Clark and Campbell in Groups 2 and 3. He goes #OhCanada in spot number four with a player who’s not even on TOUR. THAT is how shallow this field in this week!

 

 

Ryan O’ Sullivan ($16,446,046; Rank: 1,916)


@RyanGolfBlogger

 

Group 1: Jim Furyk

Group 2: Charley Hoffman

Group 3: Chad Campbell

Group 4: Adam Hadwin

 

ANALYSIS: Well, Groups 1 and 4 will be the decider here this week for me and O. His Group 2 and 3 picks won’t be knocked here.  

 

 

Ned Brown ($17,837,068; Rank: 630)


@Esoxgolf

 

Group 1: Jim Furyk

Group 2: Charley Hoffman

Group 3: Aaron Baddeley

Group 4: Patrick Rodgers

 

 

ANALYSIS: Similar to O and me, Ned and I match two picks but this time it is Group 2 and 4. All the marbles come down to Johnson and Furyk and Baddeley vs Campbell. I know which two-some I’d rather watch!
