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 2020 Safeway Open, continue at the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge this week and will continue through to the Tour Championship in Atlanta in September 2021, 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.
This week, we have the Charles Schwab Challenge at Colonial, wrapping up in Texas as part of the Lone Star Sandwich around the PGA. Colonial is a great host, and it's about to undergo a renovation after this week, which is great to hear. It's an exacting golf course, particularly off the tee and on the par 3s.
2021 Charles Schwab Challenge One and Done picks
Charley Hoffman: Hoffman gets all the Texas attention for the Valero, but Hoffman has a great track record here, too.
Jordan Spieth: I used Spieth last week, but I think he's still a great pick this week for those of you who weren't as high on him as I was for Kiawah.
Brian Harman: I'm going to keep handing out Brian Harman's name and, eventually, he's going to hit someone for a big win.
Chris Kirk: Kirk had a great track record here before he took time to deal with alcoholism. He's back, playing great and should love here.
Ryan Palmer: Palmer continues to play great golf at this advanced stage of his career, and he's a stud in these Dallas-area events.
Sungjae Im: Im seems to back where we want him to be in terms of quality of play.
My pick is Sungjae Im. I wrote this whole piece, got to the end, realized I had used everyone I recommended and made I m the pick.
