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, my weekly selection for One-and-Done players plus DFS love from Josh Culp and European Tour insight from Dave Tindall.

2015 Earnings: $13,312,208

2015 Rank: 8,563

 

Lovely Sunday rally from Spieth and Haas at Memorial cashed me over $500k but Rose reinforced that he loves that track. My play of avoiding Woods was spot on but I ruined Brown's excellent cut streak in the process. Perez ran out of gas but he's given plenty over the last two months that not even I can complain.

 

 

Group 1: Billy Horschel

Group 2: Webb Simpson

Group 3: Jeff Overton

Group 4: John Merrick

 

 

ANALYSIS: I'm breaking the "No DJ" rule so he'll surely win this week. Horschel is trending in the proper direction and won't have to putt defensively this week as the greens here aren't as violent as the ones at Memorial. Group 2 is loaded with maybes so Simpson gets the nod after his top 10 last year and T2 last time out at Quail. I'm playing the veteran angle in the final two groups as making the cut is the angle here. I'll be happy if either one "Lingmerths" it...

2015 Earnings: $17,858,500

2015 Rank: 364

 

 

 

Group 1: Dustin Johnson

Group 2: Webb Simpson

Group 3: Will Wilcox

Group 4: Lucas Glover

 

 

ANALYSIS: Wilcox helped out tremendously last week so let's see if the lightly-raced youngster can pop again. No arguments in Groups 1 and 2 and Glover has been steady with weekend tee times in his last five.

2015 Earnings: $20,343,933

2015 Rank: 25th

 

 

Group 1: Dustin Johnson

Group 2: Webb Simpson

Group 3: Jeff Overton

Group 4: John Merrick

 

 

ANALYSIS: Well, O isn't making the same mistake I am in Group No. 1 and maybe that's why he's in the top 25 nationally in this game! I need to catch up so I'm glad I have at least ONE chance to do so! The rest of picks look excellent!

2015 Earnings: $16,715,750

2015 Rank: 999

 

 

Group 1: Dustin Johnson

Group 2: Webb Simpson

Group 3: Scott Pinckney

Group 4: John Merrick

 

 

ANALYSIS: Rose almost pulled it out for Ned last week but he was happy that Rose was so lightly owned across the game. This week, I'm Ned as I'm the only one without DJ in Group 1. I like the sneaky Pinckney pick in an otherwise underwhelming Group 3.

Gamers, Ned is coming off a HEATER last week when he finished in the top 25 nationally!

 

 

Group A

 

 

Webb Simpson (10) He had a pretty good start to the season and then had a bunch of finishes in the middle of the pack. But last time out he tied for second place at Wells Fargo. He skipped this event for three years until last year when he tied for third place.

 

Ryan Palmer (4): I'm getting low on starts with Palmer, but he played well last time out with T10 at the Byron Nelson, and he has a strong recent history here with T3 in '12 and a fourth place in '13.

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Brooks Koepka, Harris English, Matt Every

 

 

Group B

 

 

Dustin Johnson (3): I'm getting low on starts with Johnson, but he is worth using based on his strong recent history here of a championship in '12 and  T10 in '13.

 

Billy Horschel (10): Outside of a third place at the VTO, Horschel had been pretty quiet until his recent run of T13 at THE PLAYERS and T11 last week at the Memorial. His recent history here has been pretty good with T10 in '13 and T6 last year.

 

Phil Mickelson (6): Mickelson likes to play the week before a major and as a result has played in the last two editions of the St. Jude with T2 in '13 and T11 last year.

 

George McNeill (10): McNeill has been playing some very good golf recently with top 17 finishes in four of his last five events on the TOUR. He has a mixed history at the St. Jude, so he is all about playing the current hot hand.

 

 

SUPER SUBS

 

Graeme McDowell, Cameron Tringale, Nick Watney, Brian Harman

 

 

Group C

 

 

Shawn Stefani (10): Last week's T40 at the Memorial was a bit of a disappointment, but before that he was having a nice run of a T9 at the Wells Fargo and a T19 at Colonial. He has played in the last two St. Jude's with the highlight being a T7 in '13.

 

Jamie Donaldson (10): Like last week I'm going to go with a European Tour player in Jamie Donaldson. This is his first time at the St. Jude, but he is the 29th ranked player in the world and he has played well recently with T8 at THE PLAYERS and T18 at the BMW PGA Championship.

Group A

 

 

Webb Simpson (9)

Ryan Palmer (3)

 

 

Koepka and English also received consideration but I'll go with guys who have had a more recent run of form. Simpson was T3 last year and Palmer has had no problem finding the 60s consistently on this track.

 

 

 

Group B:

 

 

Dustin Johnson (3)

Phil Mickelson (8)

Billy Horschel (10)

Brian Harman (9)

 

 

DJ was the easiest call because of the strength of the field. I'll be saving his final two starts for Whistling Straits and for his defense at The Barclays as he was the last winner at Plainfield (-19 in 2011). Mickelson is valuable on only a handful of tracks now and this is one. Horschel was a no-brainer this week and will be looking to capitalize on his recent form a on course he's posted solid outings the last two years. Harman is the complete and utter wild card this week. Overton has made the cut seven straight years here so if insurance is needed he might not be the worst flier around.

 

 

 

Group C:

 

 

Shawn Stefani (10)

Jamie Donaldson (10)

 

 

I wanted to pull the trigger on Jerry Kelly and still might before they wave the green flag Thursday morning. Stefani has been super solid and won't be bothered if the temperature and humidity rises. Donaldson quietly has been racking up top 20s all over the place and should be peaking into the U.S. Open. Stay tuned on Twitter for any updates or changes if there are any. LIKE IT COULD HURT THIS CRAPTACULAR SEASON OF MINE.

 

 

Daily Fantasy Sports [DFS]

 

 

Josh has compiled the recommended roster below for this week's $1 PGA Short Game contest on DraftKings. The winner goes home with $3,000 and it serves as a great warm-up for next week's monster U.S. Open event.

 

Mix and match the golfers below for a chance to win your piece of the money pie.

 

 

DraftKings Picks

 

 

Dustin Johnson ($13,000) ... He's not an ideal cash-game play, given his salary, but he does have the best chances to win this week. That makes him worth a shot in GPPs as we try to surround him with value plays with high upside.

 

George McNeill ($8,700) ... He's rattled off five straight top 30s and also finished inside the top 30 here last time around. He's not likely to be hoisting the trophy this week but he is one of the safest option to play all four rounds.

 

Boo Weekley ($7,700) ... He loves Memphis and it would not be shocking to see him add this venue to his list of winning TOUR stops. The bad back is always a possible issue, but a risk we are willing to take given his upside this week.

 

Hudson Swafford ($7,200) ... Has collected 60 or more DraftKings points in six of his last eight starts. That is really all you need from him this week and he faces much easier competition than he has during that eight-tournament stretch.

 

Charles Howell III ($6,800) ... Had finished outside the top 50 in four of his past five before collected a T31 at last week's Memorial. If you need to count on anyone to contend in these weaker-field events, CH3 is that guy. He's finished top 45 in six of his eight starts here.

 

Austin Cook ($6,400) ... He's the type of value play we need to hit on if we want to take DJ at the top. He finished top 15 here last year and has already proven to be unaffected when in contention.

 

 

Other Picks to Consider

 

 

Alternate for Cook: Stewart Cink ($6,300) ... The savvy veteran fits the mold of the golfer that can succeed around TPC Southwind. He's patient and can grind out pars all day. It helps that he's seen the course six times and has three finishes of 31st or better in his last four starts entering the week.

 

Alternate for Swafford: William McGirt ($7,000) ... He's 2-for-4 at TPC Southwind including a T13 in 2012. He's missed just five (of 20) cuts all season and should be highly considered when rounding out your rosters this week.

 

Alternate for McNeill: Shawn Stefani ($8,200) ... It was love at first sight as he put together a T7 in his 2013 debut. He sat inside the top 25 here last year at the midpoint before stumbling over the weekend. The course sets up well for him and he already sports 11 top 30s in 18 starts this season.

 

 

 

 

2015 Fantasy Race to Dubai

 

 

Dave Tindall is our newest contributor, but he’s been a fixture in Europe. In addition to his weekly previews of European Tour events on Mondays, he’ll share his selections and analysis for the Fantasy Race to Dubai at EuropeanTour.com.

 

 

Format

 

 

Pick 10 golfers. Players accumulate points based on Race to Dubai (R2D) points earned. Star player’s points are doubled. Unlimited team changes and unlimited star player changes are available each week.

 

 

Last week

 

Of course, the first time this year I go with the flow (Stenson) rather than trust my gut instinct (Noren), contrary comes out on top. “Fantasy golf is hard,” as a wise man once said. Nevertheless, despite backing the wrong horse for star pick, we jumped 104 spots.

 

 

Current position: 4,801

 

 

This week

 

 

Team Tindall (Team name: YESSIR!)

 

Richie Ramsay

Chris Wood

Rafael Cabrera-Bello

Romain Wattel

Tyrrell Hatton

Gregory Bourdy

Anthony Wall

Lee Slattery

Daniel Im

       

 

Star Player: Bernd Wiesberger

 

 

More famous in Austria than Arnie (erm, maybe). Won here in 2012, lost playoff in 2014 and T2 in Ireland last time.

 

 

The Rest

 

 

•       Richie Ramsay: Course debut but playing well everywhere at the moment so an easy pick.

•       Chris Wood: T12 on only start here and coming off good weeks at Wentworth and Royal County Down.

•       Rafael Cabrera-Bello: Battled well in Ireland (4th) and Sweden (T13) and should enjoy sun on his back.

•       RomainWattel: Third here in 2013 and top 20 either side so poised to spark again after recent dip.

•       Tyrrell Hatton: Two top 20s here, does well in hot conditions (UAE) and coming into form again.

•       Gregory Bourdy: Has shot 70 or better in 7 of his 8 round at Diamond CC. Translates to 8th and T18.

•       Anthony Wall: Five top 15s in last eight starts, including T10 most recent. Cracked top 20 here in 2014.

•       Lee Slattery: Shines at Diamond CC. T9 in 2013 and T4 last year. Coming off a T7 in Sweden last week.

•       Daniel Im: American won on the Challenge Tour in hot conditions in Switzerland last week. Press repeat.

 

 

One-and-Done

 

 

Each week I painfully writhe and wretch trying to figure out the proper strategy to find a player that will hit the top 10. Wins are great but aren’t likely so I’m satisfied with having a CHANCE to hit the big money. Missed cuts are absolutely the death in this game but even the surest of things don’t always happen in the reality world of fantasy golf. Remember, fade or follow, it’s up to you!

 

 

Frys.com: Brooks Koepka. Let’s get this started off on the right foot. Koepka, playing without any status last year, led on Sunday by three shots at the turn. He finished T3 and learned a valuable lesson. His recent form has been scintillating as he has four top 15s in his last four worldwide starts, including the PGA at Valhalla (T15). He was T9 last week at the Dunhill.Koepka, T8, did what was expected and racked up a top 10 for $168,000.

 

Shriners Open:It came down to Moore, Watney and Piercy for the OAD place this week. Laird was also in the conversation but I’m going with the best putter of the group mentioned above and there’s not a place that Moore HAS TO BE USED later. Sure, he beat Gary Woodland in a playoff last year at CIMB but I don’t use defending champions. #WeakSauce. He shares the tournament record has three top 10s in his last four. More Moore please!ANY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE THREE OTHER THAN MOORE would have been just fine. Moore has wiped me twice in eight events. The good news is I don’t even have to CONSIDER his presence again until October of 2015.

 

McGladrey Classic:This is the CLASSIC HEDGE MOVE for gamers. I’m going with Kuchar above but Simpson down here to cover my ASSet. Look, save Simpson for Greenbrier, Sedgefield or TPC Boston, but I’m going with a guy who is hot NOW and will find someone else later. HOW COULD THIS GO WRONG, RYAN MOORE???Nothing like a T41 to back up a MC; $19,600.

 

CIMB Classic:I’m loading up on Charl Schwartzel since I can’t play him on the Sunshine TOUR at the Dunhill or Joburg. His course form is overwhelming and in a limited field with limited views of this track, his experience and successes here are huge. He’ll probably WD.He couldn’t catch up after his opening round 74; T19, $94,500.

 

WGC-HSBC Champions: I’ll go with the guy who holds the course record, the 2011 title plus two other top eight finishes in four starts, Martin Kaymer. Did I mention he made 29 birdies here last year? Ok, good.If I was a casual golf fan and just picked up the newspaper on Monday morning to see that Kaymer finished T6 I would have been thrilled…$216,337

 

Sanderson Farms: It came down to Tony Finau or Hudson Swafford and I went with the Georgia ‘Dawg. Both are hot so I’ll go with the local-er of the two and the better ball-striker. I should be required to take the “Silly Season” off. BOTH missed the cut. I’m ready for 2015…

 

OHL Classic: Can I just pass? Since I couldn’t pull the trigger on Jason Bohn in the Golf Channel game, I’ll hedge him here with Stroud and Sabbatini right behind him. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG? I need a vacation. I was gun-shy but the hedge paid off with T7 and $196,275

 

HTOC: This is a good news/bad news event. The good news is that there are only 34 players and this is a track that requires previous experience. The bad news is if the guy you pick doesn’t finish in the top five it’s a complete waste of time. For the conservative/saver this is THE ONLY WEEK TO PICK Ogilvy since he’s won here twice. For the throw-caution-to-the-wind player, Kuchar, Day or Watson should lead the line. I’ll find myself right in the middle with Chris Kirk. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG?Kirk needed to tie the course record on Monday to hit six figures. Yeah, that’s all I needed to pocket $110,000, 11 birdies and 62. Day pulled the same trick but he finished T3.

 

Sony Open: I’m going with the man who has eight top 10s in 13 career starts, Charles Howell III. He’s hit the top five in five of the last six years and I’m not going to find that anywhere else on TOUR. #EasyChoice. Make it top five in five of the last SEVEN years. T26 paid $42,280.

 

Humana Challenge: Ryan Palmer gets the nod this week as he’s shown form on these tracks and has no problem getting low, yo! He’s a member at Colonial, FYI.The pain. The suffering. The life of a fantasy gamer. If reading from top to bottom it’s easy to see why my pain is prevalent. Shut up. T10 isn’t great but isn’t terrible, $136,000.

 

WMPO: This week, Hunter Mahan takes the wheel. With his wife due shortly, he knows his time, for the moment, is limited and it’s time to make hay. It doesn’t hurt that his game sets up for most layouts and it doesn’t hurt he won here in 2010 and was T4 last year. I’m not confident pulling the trigger on Watson, Spieth, Fowler or Mickelson just yet. THERE’S NOTHING WORSE than playing defense but these gentlemen are more valuable in majors/WGC than here in the desert. Brendan Steele was the backup plan. Mahan = T30 $36,729 but cashed more $$$ than Phil or Rickie! NOBODY CARES!!!

 

FIO: I’ve ridden Fowler here the last two years and he responded with T6 and MC so let’s hold off on the ticker tape parade. I’m throwing caution to the wind this week and sending the No. 1 player in the FedExCup to do work. With T2 and WIN in his last two Jimmy Walker is the play this week. I can’t use him next week at Pebble Beach where he is the defending champion (and I had him in OAD!) and his record at Riviera isn’t as strong as it is here. DO WORK, SON!One shot out of the lead entering Sunday resulted in a, for him (and me) a disappointing T7 and $189,787. Yep, that’s how high the bar is now set with him on the California coast.]

 

Pebble Beach: Day is tempting but if he keeps playing like this he’ll have chances in bigger paydays so he’s out. I’m saving Johnson for his redemption song next week at Riviera so he’s out. Walker was played last week plus he’s the defending champ so that leaves Patrick Reed. Hit it a mile. Find it. Make everything. Win. Kevin Na, Aaron Baddeley or would be a nice fill for a TOAD. Imagine if Reed didn’t close with 67 to finish T29 and pocket $44,200? Wait, it could have been WORSE? Blimey…

 

NTO: I’m a romantic so Dustin Johnson gets the call this week. His six months on the sideline were spent playing and practicing in his adopted home town and his form at Riviera is better than most.He lost in a playoff to James Hahn. That sums up my career in OAD. P2 $589,600. I liked when he was solo second last year when I had him…#MOARMONEY

 

Honda: I’m going to keep the big hitter motif going this week as I sent Keegan Bradley to bat. I’m looking to grab a guy who’s hot and has course form and he checks both boxes.Dead-beat MC. Wow. #NaeDollars

 

WGC-CC:There’s no point for me to start “saving” anybody for anything as this season is slowly slipping away. Plus, this is a WGC and the prize pool is only bigger in a couple events (PLAYERS/Open Championship). Bubba Watson is being sent out to stop the bleeding. Go on son! Bring the General Lee if necessary! HELP ME BUBBA! Other considerations would include Day (any event) or McIlroy (any event) and for TOADYS, I’m not sure how I’d talk anyone out of Jamie Donaldson.Watson finished solo third for $540,000. WHO TOLD HIM ON THE BACK NINE THAT I HAD HIM IN OAD?

 

PRO: I’ll give Overton a chance to keep up the heat on a track where he’s had success in the recent past. T27; $18,736.

 

Valspar: Time to strike while the iron is hot with Luke Donald. His four trips around here have been quite tight.  He’ll be happy to be inland this week and he’ll also be happy to see a yardage book with familiar marks on it. I’m not sure he has a better course history anywhere else and that’s been his calling card the last two years: course form.Well that streak of course form is over; T53, $13,468.

 

API: Orlando residents Ian Poulter, Graeme McDowell or Henrik Stenson work this week. Kevin Na is also a tasty angle if he’s still available. Since Match Play is all jacked up different this year, this will be the spot I burn Poults. Hopefully he bought another Ferrari this week and feels he needs to pay for it immediately…Poulter opened with 67 and got worse from there with 70-71-72 to close and watch the field lap him on the weekend. T21 for $59,141. The only way I’ll accept this is Stenson winning when I finally pull the trigger on him.

 

Valero: Laird gets the call this week as I’ll gladly save the heavy hitters for down the road. The list of winners here is odd so it’s not the week to burn a big name.The winner last week wasn’t odd but he wasn’t available for me anyhow. Laird has finally burned out as his T50 for $14,838 feels just like a MC.

 

SHO: I’m not one of those weirdos who selects the defending champ once a year so I’m playing J.B. Holmes this week instead of saving him for Quail Hollow. I don’t love that he’s coming off a MC his last time out but his numbers at GCH are very nice. I hope the course is soaking wet and long as it can play.BINGO. BANGO. BONGO. First oversized check of the year!

 

Masters: Mickelson was a tempting choice this week as was the blazing hot Spieth but I’m going to load up on Jason Day for the second consecutive year. Except this year he’s not hurt. I’ve played Watson, DJ, Walker already on courses where they have excelled in the past and have had decent success. Day fits that bill this week.Please read the first sentence over and over and over and over and over and over again. I’m wondering how I left Rose out! Day opened with 67 and faded away to T28 and $68,000 while the first two names on the team sheet made $880,000 and $1.8 million respectively. All I can do is laugh. Again.

 

RBC Heritage: Since I can’t see the forest from the trees, Charley Hoffman gets the ball this week. His current form is excellent and he has plenty of scar tissue at this even that can help him down the stretch. If Spieth wins… HEY AT LEAST SPIETH DIDN’T WIN LAST WEEK!!! And neither did Goldilocks; and neither did I. Twhocares and $12,054

 

Zurich: With six of the last nine at TPC Louisiana going to a first-timer, I’m going with youthful exuberance in Morgan Hoffmann. Other considerations were Berger and Thomas.  Hoffmann began the final round T9 and finished T36 for $31,099. If you’re scoring at home, this is the THIRD tournament in a row that my “other” selections have done just a bit better. See above for details as Berger was T6 and Thomas was T12.

 

WGC-Match Play: Reading this has angered me so I’m sending Paul Casey to the bat this week. I don’t care if it’s a cricket bat. It's a big tournament so it deserves a big player.Stupid food poisoning.Stupid putter.Stupid McIlroy.T5 $285,000.

 

THE PLAYERS: I’m going with Ponte Vedra’s adopted son, Jim Furyk. His form has been excellent and his course knowledge is second-to-none.  Stenson, Garcia and Westwood would be my next three.T56; $22,200. Not worth adding up.

 

Wells Fargo: If you can’t use defending champions then McIlroy is DONE for The Open, WGC-BI and PGA so please remember that. The safety net of the U.S. Open for Mickelson goes out the window as well as Chambers Bay will be new to everyone besides Greller and Spieth. Stenson was T3 at St. Andrews in 2010 so that’s an option moving forward. I’ll take Mickelson on the track where he’s had his best results without a victory (besides the U.S. Open). Congrats to Rory on his win!Well, I nailed this on both ends so I’m just half-angry. T4, $293,466 so I only left $990k on the table!

 

Colonial: With two wins in his last four years and six top 10s in the last seven, I’ll trust ZJ to do the business this week. His putter hasn’t been up to the task but his current form suggests his ball-striking is carrying the load. Folks might argue to save him for the JDC but that will take 30 birdies to win and a cold putter won’t help with that. Dufner also got a look but Palmer (already burned) should be your choice if ZJ is not going out. Peterson is the play this week if catching up is the order of the day.Johnson finished T19 for $ 78,780 even though he led the field in GIR and fairways. Please don’t ask about his putting stats. Good luck to all of you who are saving him for JDC where he’ll need 30 birdies to win.

 

Byron Nelson: It’s Marc Leishman without a doubt this week as I’ve burned Day, DJ, Palmer, Keegs and Charley Hoffman.I have no words except MISSED and CUT. $0.

 

Memorial: With a track that usually favors veteran studs, I’m going with course-horse Matt Kuchar, to hell with his recent form. Haas and Rose were very close second and third choices so I have no problem endorsing them either. T30-something. Who cares. $45,880.

 

FESJC: I'm throwing Horschel to the wolves this week as my sacrificial lamb. In a field with light options for me and in general, I need to score a big one to start making a difference. I can argue that leaders should use a big name to keep/maintain their lead. I can also argue that in a bizarre field such as this it's time for a "throwaway" pick so that there is lumber in the lineup down the road. Jesus, based on my OAD record, I'm surprised anyone reads what I think on this subject. To both of you taking this in, thank you. It means a lot. No, it does, thank you.
