Arnold Palmer Invitational - One-and-done

The Arnold Palmer Invitational is less than 12 hours from teeing off and it's time to put our finishing touches on the fantasy games.

The one-and-done essentially came down to Justin Rose, Bubba Watson and Graeme McDowell in my mind. I eliminated Kevin Na because he seems to fall back when expectations heighten, and given his form and course history there are a lot of eyes on him this week.

I would like GMac a little better if the weather wasn't so perfect. He would be more apt to emerge as others fall if the winds blew and the conditions turned nasty. I still love him this week, but he came in third.

Watson and Rose are close to a toss up, with Rose offering slightly better course history and Watson touting impeccable form, but even that is splitting hairs. It's going to be hard for Watson to continue his streak of three consecutive top-two finishes in stroke play events. There's nowhere to go but down. Rose is trending very nicely into this tournament and has two top threes in the past three trips. He's the selection this week.

As for Yahoo!, I hope you found the Rotoworld article enjoyable.

Weather looks to be perfect tomorrow, so it doesn't seem essential to start one wave of tee times over the other. Here's my lineup.

  • A-List - Starting Bubba Watson with Adam Scott on the bench.
  • B-List - Starting Matt Every and Justin Rose with Hunter Mahan and Zach Johnson on the bench.
  • C-List - Starting Kevin Na with Graeme McDowell on the bench. 
Current stats are: 1,739 points, 650 ranking and 99th percentile. 

Best of luck to all!
