With the PGA Tour deciding to offer a one-and-done fantasy golf platform, 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 Safeway Open, continue to the 2018 Dell Technologies Championship this week and will work through the Tour Championship in Atlanta in September 2018, keeping track of our picks all along the way.
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.
First of all, apologies for the belated picks the last two weeks. I've been on vacation in Myrtle Beach for my first real vacation in about 8 years (one where I didn't really do any work). It's been glorious, but we're back to the normal schedule for the BMW Championship and Tour Championship.
We almost had a great week last week with Jordan Spieth looking so good after 54 holes. But he didn't look as great after 72 holes. This week, we have the Friday-Monday Dell Technologies Championship for the final time, and we have nearly 100 players vying to get to the third leg of the playoffs. TPC Boston certainly has horses for courses worth targeting this week.
2018 Dell Technologies Championship One and Done picks
- Rory McIlroy: Rory has won here twice, and he has to feel somewhat refreshed with a week off.
- Jason Day: Day loves this golf course. He thrives in the playoffs (before East Lake) as well.
- Justin Thomas: Thomas is the defending champion, and he's almost always worth a look. But you've probably used him by now.
- Jordan Spieth: Though I used Spieth last week, I'd still recommend him here. Has a good record in this event.
- Patrick Reed: Reed loves playing PO'd and with a chip on his shoulder. Whatever happened with his and his wife's Red Sox tickets the other night have ticked him off.
My pick this week will be Jason Day. I haven't used him and I think this is my last chance to do so with confidence.
