Simply whenever you thought the Fantasy Golf Report was solely value studying for the religious progress, alongside comes every week once we* choose the winner together with two of the three runner-ups and two different guys who completed within the high ten. And this with out the good thing about our a lot beloved historic efficiency chart. It is virtually as if we are inclined to put an excessive amount of weight on how gamers have carried out on the similar course in previous years and do not rely sufficient on how they’re taking part in now. 

Possibly it is a signal that we must always change our method. Focus extra on the current than the previous. Pay extra consideration to statistics like greens in regulation and strokes gained placing whereas not taking the lazy method of placing a bunch of inventory in how a man performed a sure golf course 4 years in the past. That is going to take some work but it surely might be actually good for us (insert considerate emoji) . . . nah . . . we’ll simply hold doing what we have been doing.    


After I learn this tweet I did not know whether or not to really feel consolation within the information that others shared my latent concern of being walled-in and never having sufficient room to make a golf swing or utter terror that others share my latent concern of being walled-in and never having sufficient room to make a golf swing. 


This week the Tour returns to TPC Craig Ranch which final yr impressed what was in all probability a high 5 FGR publish for 2021 (a low bar I do know) as we speculated in jest that the evaluations offered by some Craig Ranch householders might have indicated that they’d been subjected to some gentle brainwashing. We truly went searching for extra materials to proceed the gag this yr however there may be none. Like the entire evaluations have been cleaned from the web. Bizarre.

Anyway, Ok.H. Lee received right here final yr however we do not anticipate the king of the center of the pack end to copy something near that anomalous effort. Nonetheless, Sam Burns completed second and historical past has proven that when Burnsy likes a course, he tends to have repeated success (see the Valspar Championship). 

And sure we’re ignoring Scottie Scheffler AGAIN regardless of even our personal higher judgment however in the end this dude has obtained to sit back and we’re dedicated to being the one fantasy golf outlet that will get it proper when that lastly occurs. And in addition sure we acknowledge that we’re the weirdo on the roulette desk of whom the pit bosses say, “I do not know man . . . he simply sits there each evening betting $10 on quantity 23 . . .over and time and again.”   

Transferring proper alongside. Even when Will Zalatoris’ ugly placing means he’ll solely win half the tournaments he ought to, he is nonetheless a high ten machine and enjoyable to look at. He additionally finds himself in that undervalued class with the likes of Max Homa, Corey Conners and Talor Gooch, all of whom are FGR regulars who can be making us a ton of dough if solely we would not be so cussed about choosing the favorites (insert wide-eye emoji right here).  

Just a few different notes this week:

  • It’s a must to issue Jhonattan Vegas into your plans. He is on considered one of his rolls and he completed tied ninth right here final yr (and we’re again to our dropping components). 
  • Matthew Wolff is displaying indicators that one can go to golf’s quantum realm and make it again. This matter deserves far more than a bullet level however I am going to simply say that as somebody who can be attempting to rediscover the love of the sport as a result of it is speculated to be fucking enjoyable, I hope he is rewarded with success. 
  • Dick Vitale whining on Twitter about Notre Dame being left-out of the lads’s NCAA lacrosse match and basing his grievance on the truth that they beat Duke twice is essentially the most Dick Vitale/Notre Dame/Duke factor ever and it brings us immense pleasure.  

One and Finished Decide: Sam Burns

“Let the fools have their
Scottie Scheffler.”

Different Man I would Decide: Talor Gooch

Sleeper Decide: Doc Redman

DraftKings Prime Ten Values






















* You could have observed that typically the FGR is written from the plural first-person as if I’ve a collaborator or a staff working with me. Relaxation assured that this stays a one man wolfpack however typically the opposite voices in there get a bit extra assertive about getting some credit score for his or her enter (insert loopy face emoji).
