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 2018 Safeway Open, continue this week at the 2019 Charles Schwab Challenge and will continue through to the Tour Championship in Atlanta in August 2019, 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.
We did it. We finally got out of the slump, and we nailed Brooks Koepka to win a fourth major title at Bethpage Black. Of course, it's not the craziest call in the world, but there were a lot of good choices going into this major. This time, one of the obvious choices was the right choice.
Now we head to Ft. Worth and Colonial for the renamed Charles Schwab Challenge. Just shy of half of the world top 50 is in the field, a good show of support the week after a major, its new spot on the calendar.
2019 Charles Schwab Challenge One and Done picks
- Justin Rose: Faded in tough conditions at Bethpage Black on Sunday, but he's been heading in the right direction post-Masters.
- Jon Rahm: For some reason, he's not advancing forward in majors. Gonna take some time to figure it out for him.
- Kevin Kisner: Past winner here who plays this course very well with his phenomenal short game.
- Jordan Spieth: Very cautiously optimistic after a nice weekend in tough conditions at the PGA. Not good on Saturday but a nice Sunday. Was it because he was out of it?
My pick this week will be Justin Rose, going with the former world No. 1 on a course he seems to like. My question is if Rose's window is starting to close.
