Fantasy Tip Sheet: Bridgestone Invitational

AKRON, Ohio — No cut. The best and biggest names in golf. Plenty of storylines.

And it still comes down to one player: Tiger Woods.

And our fantasy panel likes Woods’ chances this week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational at Firestone, pointing to his three PGA Tour wins this season, as well as his past success in Akron.

Woods is coming off his best major finish since 2009 and has played well right before majors, winning at Bay Hill prior to the Masters and at Memorial prior to the U.S. Open. He missed the cut at Greenbrier before the Open Championship.

Last week’s winner, Scott Piercy, could be an underdog to watch, while Luke Donald has strung together a series of nice finishes and might put some distance between himself at World No. 1 and Tiger at No. 2 with a victory.

As for our panel, Jim McCabe extended his lead behind the best pick of the week – Bud Cauley.
