Fantasy Tip Sheet: Players Championship

Anyone know who is No. 1 in the world right now?

In what is quickly becoming a fantastic virtual game of match play, Luke Donald and Rory McIlroy continue to leapfrog each other atop the Official World Golf Rankings, with McIlroy moving back to No. 1 with his T-2 finish at the Wells Fargo Championship this past weekend.

At least a pair of our fantasy panelists believe that will change again this week, seeing TPC Sawgrass as a perfect place for Donald to pick up his second victory of the season and reclaim the world’s top spot.

As a whole, our panel seems to think there will be an international flavor atop the leaderboard come Sunday, with two panelists picking Donald, another two taking Lee Westwood, one taking McIlroy and another taking Sergio Garcia.

As for the panel, the race is heating up, with Alex Miceli putting a bit of pressure on leader Jim McCabe with last week’s best pick of McIlroy. McCabe still holds a $600,000 lead overall.

Here is a look at the panel’s picks this week:
