Wyndham Championship - One-and-Done



The Wyndham Championship returns to Sedgefield Country Club. With the FedExCup Playoffs looming in a week, many elite options skip this event to rest up. Of the few that are on site, most have been used in the OAD format already this year. That means options are limited.

I’m attempting to ride a young and hot hand with some local roots. That is Grayson Murray, born in Raleigh, NC. 

While is Twitter handle has proven him to be about as likeable as Rory Sabbatini, his game of late has been strong. We’ll hold our breath, for multiple reasons, and plug him into the lineup.

Best of luck to all!

PGA Championship - One-and-done

The PGA Championship heads to Quail Hollow for the first time, with Jimmy Walker as the defending champ. With Quail Hollow traditionally hosting the Wells Fargo Championship, we have some strong clues as to how it will play. That said, there was a massive redesign to the front nine, so course history deserves a grain of salt.

As for my one-and-done pick this week, I wrestled with Rory McIlroy versus Thomas Pieters. At the end of the day, I just couldn't ignore McIlroy's course history. Rory it is.

Best of luck to all!

WGC-Bridgestone and Barracuda - One-and-Done

We have a pair this week, with the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational taking the spotlight to the Barracuda Championship's back seat. While our options for the OAD are plentiful in Reno, Nevada, we are starting to run low on studs for the main event.

The WGC-Bridgestone Invitational offers us the option of an elite player who is having a bit of a sub-standard year. That would be Jason Day, who tied for third in this event last year. I'm rolling with the hopes that he catches fire this week.

At the Barracuda Championship, which features the Modified Stableford scoring system, I'm riding the hot hand of Robert Garrigus. He went 10-T5 the last two weeks and has never missed a cut in this event. Given his firepower, he's also in play for an eagle and the coveted 5 points that comes with it.

Best of luck to all!

RBC Canadian Open - One-and-Done

The RBC Canadian Open backs up the Open Championship, and here is this week's one-and-done selection. While it's tempting to take a Canuck in their fifth major, I went with an American who has been quietly playing some really good golf over the last month. That is Ben Martin. I thought long and hard about Adam Hadwin, but his form has been a bit off lately.

As a quick note for those that didn't catch it on Twitter or Rotoworld, I have stepped away from my Rotoworld duties. I'm not sure what that means for this space, but I suspect that I may use this platform a bit more than I have in the past. Perhaps it will be for golf thoughts or ramblings not related to fantasy.

Either way, I'll still be around in some form or fashion!

Best of luck to all!

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!
