AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am - Fantasy

While the tee times / course rotations haven't been announced for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am quite yet, we'll do our best to offer a fantasy outlook for the tournament ahead.

The course rotation really only matters for the Yahoo! format. The suggestion would be to try and stagger players so all your guys aren't on the same course, but it's not an absolute necessity as it was for the Farmers.

As for the Yahoo!, we are probably far enough into the season to where percentiles and points have some relevance, so I'll start listing mine. Currently 825 points, ranked 8,936 overall and 88th percentile.

One observation, it seems less people are playing the Yahoo! format this season. Typically, that ranking would have been good for about a 92nd percentile, so we likely have about 5k less in the game overall. If I had to guess, the game is more populated with serious players and some of the fluff has fallen off.

Here we go:

  • A-List - Taking Kevin Stadler and Patrick Reed, noticeably leaving Phil Mickelson off the roster. This was the hardest call of the week. I'll only consider it a backfire if Lefty posts a top three, as I would have likely held off on him for the first few rounds anyway.
  • B-List - Jason Day, Hunter Mahan, Dustin Johnson and Jordan Spieth. That list doesn't need much of an explanation.
  • C-List - Jimmy Walker and Graeme McDowell
While Mike Glasscott's weekly Rotoworld article hasn't published yet, my Golf Channel picks will be included in that in the very near future. 

I'll return tomorrow to firm up the Yahoo! once tee times are announced and to announce my one-and-done selection. I've narrowed that down to Day, Mahan and Walker.

Until then, best of luck to all!
