Wells Fargo Championship - Fantasy

Before I dive into the usual suspects of fantasy games for the Wells Fargo Championship, there is someithing out there worth addressing. It was reported ahead of this week that the greens at Quail Hollow were in desperate shape. If you want to read a solid first-hand account, I recommend reading Jesper Parnevik's Twitter history today (@JesperParnevik).

Coinciding with that news, Tiger Woods decided not to play late last week and we saw several high-profile WDs from Dustin Johnson and Ian Poulter today. While they are required to give a medical reason since it is past the deadline, DJ has very much downplayed the degree of his injury, leaving many to connect the dots. Both also mentioned being excited about the event on Twitter in the days before their trip to Charlotte.

What do dead/dying greens and some with new sod on them mean? I'm not entirely sure, but my guess is that it puts a further premium on ball striking and levels the playing field when it comes to putting. I would also think it would negate some local knowledge that guys like Webb Simpson have.

Now for the games......

Yahoo!

Another nice week last week, racking up 194 points to improve to 6485 in the full season with 2678 points and reaching the 94th percentile.

This week looks like this and take into account Thursday tee times:

  • A-List - Bill Haas starting and Rory McIlroy on the bench
  • B-List - Webb Simpson and Nick Watney starting with Lucas Glover and Hunter Mahan on the bench.
  • C-List - Rickie Fowler starting with Lee Westwood on the bench.
