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 Barracuda Championship 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 have an opposite-field event this week in Reno, and it's always so hard to predict how these things will go. Add on the fact that we're playing modified Stableford this week, and we have to look toward aggressive players.
2017 Barracuda Championship One and Done picks
- Robert Garrigus: Garrigus is on fire and saved his PGA Tour status last week in Canada. Love him where aggression is needed.
- Brandon Hagy: Hagy didn't finish off with a birdie in Canada, but he sure played the best I've seen him play this season. Making cuts on the reg of late.
- Smylie Kaufman: A couple of nice starts in a row for Smylie, including a T-12 in the Barbasol.
- Sam Saunders: The man loves himself an oppo-field event. Looked very good in Canada last week.
My pick this week will be Brandon Hagy. This just screams a great place for him.
