Fantasy Tip Sheet: The Memorial

Four wins in 2013. Five wins at Memorial.

So it is no shock that Tiger Woods would register as the favorite this week at the house that Jack Nicklaus built.

A year ago, Woods made a back-nine surge to win at Muirfield, picking up his second win of 2012 to that point.

This season, Woods has won four of his seven PGA Tour starts.

It won’t be a runaway for Woods, as he will face off against 36 of the top 50 in the Golfweek/Sagarin Rankings, including 15 of the top 20. One of those is Matt Kuchar, who also registers as Jim McCabe’s pick this week despite the love affair with Woods by the rest of the panel.

The race for the top spot in the fantasy rankings continues to get tighter, with Jeff Rude making up significant ground with picks of Tim Clark and Zach Johnson at Colonial, putting both Rude and Nick Masuda within striking distance of leader Lance Ringler.

Check out this week’s picks:
