Fantasy Tip Sheet: Honda Classic

Rory McIlroy is the defending champ. Tiger Woods fired a 62 in the final round last year.

Yet, neither one is being picked to win the Honda Classic by our fantasy panel.

Instead, Justin Rose is getting plenty of love. And for good reason. Rose has not finished worse than a share of 24th in his last 10 starts and has two top-5s in his past two appearances at PGA National.

Other stars to keep an eye on at Honda are Charl Schwartzel and Lee Westwood.

Americans have won every title on the PGA Tour this season, so a win by England’s Rose, South Africa’s Schwartzel or England’s Westwood would break that cycle.

As for our panel, Nick Masuda maintains his slight edge over Jeff Rude, with the latter having the best week at WGC-Accenture Match Play, mainly for his upset pick of Fredrik Jacobson.

Here is a look at this week’s picks:
