The Open Championship - One-and-Done

My one-and-done selection for The Open Championship is a fan favorite that would keep with the trend of the first two major winners of 2017. Sergio Garcia and Brooks Koepka were two of the most talented players not to have won a major. Someone else with that title is Rickie Fowler. Rickie has two top fives in Opens, including a runner-up finish.

It's always a bit of a guess with the weather draw, but it doesn't appear to be the kind of week with wild swings. With that, I'm not sweating the draw too much with this selection.

As for the Barbasol Championship, I tend to try and take the best available in a weak field and hold my breath. This week I'm rolling the dice with an up-and-comer from Alabama. That would be Trey Mullinax. He's played well of late, and has the firepower to get it done.

Best of luck to all!

John Deere Classic - One-and-Done

The John Deere Classic returns to TPC Deere Run. While options like Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker are in play, their last couple of visits have not been nearly as inspiring as their domination a few years back. I'm rolling the dice with a hot hand and taking Kyle Stanley.

As a quick note for those keeping up, while I was unable to post last week due to travel, I did burn Danny Lee at Greenbrier.

Best of luck to all!

Quicken Loans National - One-and-Done

The Quicken Loans National heads to TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm for the first time. With this being a new venue, it's a fantasy nightmare.

I'm pulling the lever on a guy who has actually won here, albeit on the Web.com Tour. That would be David Lingmerth. His form is also solid enough to buy into.

Fingers crossed and breath held!

Travelers Championship - One-and-Done

Facts are facts, and I'm in a one-and-done slump. Know that going into this week's Travelers Championship. As a result, I've tried just pick a name that fits and move on. I narrowed my two choices to Marc Leishman and Bubba Watson.

While Watson is the course history play, Leishman has much better form and touts very nice course history. I'm taking Leishman and fully expecting to jinx him.

Best of luck to all!

U.S. Open - One-and-Done

Apologies for the late post. For the U.S. Open One-and-Done, I'm taking the defending champ (Dustin Johnson).

While it's dangerous to take a defending champion, we did just see Daniel Berger successfully defend a week ago. A case could also be made that DJ's head will be with his newborn son, but it's not really the head we're after with DJ. It's his immense talent.

In truth, Erin Hills is an excellent layout for DJ.

FedEx St. Jude Classic - One-and-Done

The FedEx St. Jude Classic kicks off in about 12 hours, and it's time to close the book on this week's One-and-Done selection.

In a field that's relatively weak, I tend to be a fan of grabbing an elite player and hoping the cream rises to the top. That's the play this week, as I'll be burning Brooks Koepka. He's placed T3-T2 on his last two visits to TPC Southwind, so course history is a plus as well.

At the moment I'm a little bit snake bit in this particular game. Perhaps this is the week it turns around.

Cheers!

Memorial Tournament - One-and-Done

One of the hottest players in the world has no history in the Memorial Tournament. While that's scary in a one-and-done format, what Jon Rahm has done this year on courses of all shapes and sizes is spectacular.

Short of blowing a Dustin Johnson start, it's hard to argue against rolling the dice with the bombing Spaniard in a tournament with a healthy purse.

With that, it's Rahm's away!
