FanTeam Season Long Golf Picks And Team Reveal

PGA TOUR SEASON LONG STRATEGY AND PICKS

It’s just over a week until Fanteam’s inaugural season-long PGA Tour game gets underway, with €25,000 to play for! We’ve got top golf expert Jack Humphrey to share his initial picks for this unique format below. Keep your eyes peeled for a further article on potential season-long strategies in the coming days.

If you’ve been living under a fantasy rock for the last few weeks then jump here first to learn all about how the PGA tour season game will work…..

THE RUN UP TO THE MASTERS 

We have just 4 events before golf’s first major, the Masters at Augusta National. Below I’m going to give you a rundown of the players I like for each event and who will make up my core build.

MARCH 10-13 PLAYERS CHAMPIONSHIP – Golf’s unofficial 5th major is a great way to start the season-long contest and offers a true test for the PGA tour pros. Strokes gained on approach will be key here as will course history. 

Players to consider – Justin Thomas 13.4M, Paul Casey 10.0M and Si Woo Kim 9.5M


MARCH 17-20 VALSPAR CHAMPIONSHIP – The Copperhead course in Tampa is a true putting test that attracts some of the best golfers on the tour. The key stats here are strokes gained on approach and strokes gained putting.

Players to consider – Victor Hovland 12.3M, Paul Casey 10.0M and Denny McCarthy 8.8M

MARCH 24-27 PUNTACANA CHAMPIONSHIP – This is a stop on the tour that does not attract the tours best golfers and certainly an area where your lower priced guys are going to come into play. The Puntacana course is based in the Dominican Republic and my key stat here will be strokes gained from tee to green.

Players to consider – Charlie Hoffman 9.2M, Joel Dahmen 9.2M and Hudson Swafford 8.2M

MARCH 31 – APRIL 3 VALERO TEXAS OPEN – The Texas open is a great warm up event before the Masters and offers another true putting test. Strokes gained on approach are also key here as is course history.

Players to consider – Jordan Spieth 11.6M, Corey Conners 10.5M and  Charlie Hoffman 9.2M 

TEAM REVEAL

As you can see I’ve prepared my lineup for these first 4 events around all the players mentioned above. 

I hope this article has given you plenty of food for thought – especially for those of you that know very little about golf, but plan on playing the season long contest.
