Fantasy Tip Sheet: The Players Championship

In what many consider to be golf’s “fifth major,” there is no question that the quality of the field at the Players Championship will present many different opinions on who the favorite at Sawgrass might be this week.

Of course, there is Tiger Woods and his three victories in 2013. There is also Adam Scott and his Masters victory. This is not to mention defending champ Matt Kuchar.

Yet, none of those players registers on the radar of our panel of experts this week.

Luke Donald is the most popular pick, mostly due to his short-game prowess. Lee Westwood and Phil Mickelson also register as favorites, with Lefty coming off a disappointing bogey-bogey-par finish at the Wells Fargo Championship to fall out of the lead.

As for the panel, Nick Masuda stayed in the outright lead after Wells Fargo, with Lance Ringler right on his heels.

Take a look at this week’s picks:
