With the PGA Tour deciding to offer a one-and-done fantasy golf platform starting in 2017, as well the increasing number of private one-and-done leagues, we here at Golf News Net will offer weekly one-and-done fantasy golf picks separate from our weekly fantasy golf rankings and picks.
We began with the 2017 SBS Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, continue to the 2017 Honda Classic this week and will work through the Tour Championship in Atlanta in September, keeping track of our picks all along the way.
First, before we begin, if you’re not familiar with game, read this primer on the one-and-done fantasy golf format, and welcome to the game. It really is as easy as it sounds, but you have to take a long-term view of the season to figure out how best to use players.
We move to the start of the Florida Swing, with PGA National’s Champion Course again hosting The Honda Classic. There are typically dramatic finishes with a good mix of top players and unexpected contenders.
2017 Honda Classic One and Done picks
- Adam Scott: We were reluctant to use Scotty in his PGA Tour 2017 debut, but a T-11 at Riv is good enough for us.
- Luke Donald: So why now for Luke Donald? He’s heading the right direction with some top-25s in a row, and he’s got a good record here.
- Rickie Fowler: Fowler has a rather good record at PGA National. While he hasn’t played much this season, when he has, he’s been in the top six, save for one MC.
- Sergio Garcia: We’re going to keep mentioning Garcia this week, with a runner-up finish last year. Just a wacky week last week in L.A.
My pick this week will be Rickie Fowler. He’s got the right mix of under-the-radar form and a good track record.
