Fantasy Aces: St. Jude Classic

WEEK 21, MATCH 1: Jim McCabe ($6,126,143; 8-11-2) vs. Lance Ringler ($3,935,742; 12-8-1)

JIM McCABE

St. Jude Classic

Site: Memphis, Tenn.

Courses: TPC Southwind (7,244 yards, par 70)

Purse: $5.6 million

Winner’s share: $1.08 million

Best bet: David Toms. Pretty creative, huh? But how can you ignore two wins, two seconds, a third, a fourth, and a T-10 in eight years. Sometimes you have to invest in a blue-chipper.

Ace up my sleeve: Jason Dufner. He’s been T-13 and T-7 the last two seasons in Memphis and don’t forget, he’s been knocking at the door even more frequently.

LANCE RINGLER

Best bet: Ben Crane. A very god field as assembled with many of the top players focused on next week’s major. Crane has been playing as well as any player in the world and will chalenge this week in Memphis.

Ace up my sleeve: David Toms. Hard not to pick a past two-time winner of this event. Depite any struggles as of late, Toms should play well this week.




WEEK 21, MATCH 2: Sean Martin ($6,144,549; 10-10-1) vs. Jeff Babineau ($3,979,063; 8-9-4)

SEAN MARTIN

Best bet: Ben Crane. Crane may not be the most exciting player on the PGA Tour, but he’s one of the steadiest. In his past 10 events, he’s missed just one cut and has seven top-25s, and that stretch doesn’t include his victory at Torrey Pines. He’s finished T-4, T-7 and T-3 in his past three starts, as well, and was T-14 at last year’s St. Jude.

Ace up my sleeve: David Toms. There’s not many players that play a course better than David Toms plays TPC Southwind. Since 2000, he’s finished worse than 15th just twice. He’s finished in the top 4 six times, including two victories and two runners-up.

JEFF BABINEAU

Best bet: Robert Allenby. He’s playing well, has a strong record in Memphis, and one of these days he’s going to break through.

Ace up my sleeve: Shaun Micheel. In his limited opportunities thus far in 2010, he has played decently (two top 25s). And this time he’ll be playing at home.
