Genesis Open Fantasy Golf picks
The PGA Tour moves to The Riviera Country Club this week following Phil Mickelson’s 50th career win at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am last week.
There’s strong field in town with the likes of Tiger Woods, Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy all returning to action in California.
The aim of our fantasy game this year is to pick the right players to match the RankBuster. This week’s is set at 206 so who can you fit in your team to beat it? Here are my Genesis Open Fantasy Golf picks.
Fantasy Rank: 7
Schauffele is one of the inform players on the PGA Tour so far this season and has won two events since the end of October.
The American hasn’t found himself outside the top 25 in his last six starts and also carries some course form into the event as he recorded a top 10 on his debut here last year.
Fantasy Rank: 13
Casey comes off the back of the fantastic second place finish on the Monterrey Peninsula where he held the lead going into the final round.
The Englishman’s previous start before Pebble Beach was at the Singapore Open where he finished T2. Casey will be looking to turn his fortunes around at Riviera but when a ball striker like himself is in form you’d expect him to be battling it out at the top of the leaderboard this week.
Rafa Cabrera Bello
Fantasy Rank: 26
The Spaniard was in the mix for most of the week last week but faded away at Pebble Beach with a final round of 76.
He’s also another player who recorded a good finish on his tournament debut with a top 30 and I always like to pick Cabrera Bello when the big names are playing as he’s always good value pick.
Fantasy Rank: 34
As I stated in this week’s betting tips, Bradley has actually been playing well over his last few starts but hasn’t been able to get the putter going. The stats backed this up at the Phoenix Open where Bradley ranked well in strokes gained with his approach shots but ranked near the bottom of the putting statistics.
If he can find success on the greens the American will find himself at the right end of the leaderboard this week.
Fantasy Rank: 58
Ryan Moore comes into this event as a major sleeper having missed having his last two cuts.
I always like to pick a player who has the potential to gain points on other players by having a low selection and Moore fits the bill, especially when he has recorded four top 30s in his last six starts at Riviera.
Fantasy Rank: 70
Chris Stroud is a player who has hit a purple patch over the past couple of weeks.
The American has had a pair of top 10s at two events with strong fields and looks a fantastic pick for this week if you’re trying to find a long shot for your team.
