Fantasy Tip Sheet: Tampa Bay Championship

After the excitement of last week’s WGC-Cadillac Championship, there isn’t as much focus on this week’s PGA Tour event in Tampa, Fla.

But there should be. With the likes of Luke Donald, Adam Scott, Matt Kuchar and Louis Oosthuizen teeing it up at the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook, the field is quite impressive.

Yet, it is someone who has dipped in the OWGR (and Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings) that is getting love from our fantasy panel this week: Retief Goosen.

While considered an underdog, Goosen has made all three cuts this season, including a T-9 at Pebble Beach.

The “favorites” to keep an eye on this week include Sergio Garcia, Jason Dufner, Jim Furyk, Adam Scott and Scott Piercy.

As for our panel, Nick Masuda extends his lead over Jeff Rude behind his pick of Graeme McDowell (T-3) at Doral, but most of the panel is within one correct prediction of taking over the outright lead as the Florida Swing wraps up.

Take a look at this week’s picks:
