Fantasy Tip Sheet: Frys.com Open

Spencer Levin, Tiger Woods and Patrick Cantlay

Our panel of golf experts make their picks for the Frys.com Open at CordeValle, the second event of the PGA Tour’s Fall Series:

Rank Winner Wild Card Last Week
Rude Spencer Levin

Having breakout season. Five top 10s, including T-5 last week in Las Vegas. Back in native northern California, where he should be comfortable and confident.

Kevin Na

Riding high coming off victory in Vegas.

Winner: Nick Watney (2); wild card: Chad Campbell (T-32)

McCabe Spencer Levin

Sort of a homecoming, being a Northern California kid. Tied for fifth in Vegas last week, and with five top 10s and $2.15M, it’s been one terrific year.

Ben Crane

Total hunch, based on a T-10 at Vegas. Maybe the game is coming along after a fairly dismal campaign.

Winner: Chad Campbell (T-23); wild card: Cameron Tringale (T-73).

Martin Patrick Cantlay

Why not? He hasn’t finished worse than 24th in four PGA Tour starts and owns the lowest round on Tour this year. Oh, and he won a college event at CordeValle by four shots.

Adam Hadwin

The Canadian made his mark with a fourth-place finish at the Canadian Open and is 3-for-3 in cuts made on Tour this year (T-39, U.S. Open; T-32, Greenbrier Classic).

Winner: Martin Laird (T-40); wild card: Cameron Tringale (T-73).

Miceli Brandt Jobe

I keep thinking he will win in 2011, so why not this week?

Paul Goydos

If he can get the flatstick figured out, he could win in 2011. He should have done it last week in Vegas.

Ringler Rory Sabbatini

Made 10 of his last 11 cuts, and against a “soft” field Sabbatini should be in the hunt this weekend.

William McGirt

Recorded his best finish of the season last week (T-16). Been in the 60s in 13 of his last 20 rounds.
