Deep in The Rough: The Wachovia Championship

Isn’t golf fun? The EDS Byron Nelson Championship had the excitement of a major with two bust-out candidates going at it in a playoff. The winner? The beneficiary of a huge confidence / fantasy boost? Adam Scott. This guy has been a pro since 2000, and while he has shown incredible talent, he has yet to really bust out. At the age of 27, his best golf is still to come. The Byron Nelson could be just what he needs to have a strong second half of ’08. Ryan Moore, the other end of the playoff, could use this as a confidence boost or it could be a continued sign of wasted talent.

Either way, we must move on to the Wachovia Championship, which was won last year by none other than Tiger Woods. This year, the field is very strong despite the absence of last year’s winner. Allow me to help you sift through the rough and get the most points.

Players to Consider

Adam Scott: Sure, why not? He won last week and has a great track record here. Start with confidence, and you heard it here first, this guy could win a major this year.

Jim Furyk: Jim won this event in 2005 and 2006. He also finished 4th at the Heritage (his last event). While he has not played his best so far, this could be the event where he returns to world-class form.

Stewart Cink: Cink is having a great fantasy year – despite not being able to close. He’ll play well here, and who knows, this might be the week where he finally gets it done.

Anthony Kim: He’s come in the top 20 in his last 2 events, and finished 5th last year. While he’s a bit inconsistent, I’d throw him in the mix.

Kevin Sutherland: Two top 10’s in his last 2 events, plus a 24th and 14th place finish here the last two years. Ride the hot hand!

Players to Avoid

Rory Sabbatini: Rory finished well here last year, but its time to admit that he does not have the same game this year. I picked him last week looking for a bounce back, it didn’t come. It won’t come this week, either.

Zach Johnson: I hate to avoid him, just ‘cause I like him, but he missed the cut last week and came in 84th last year. Not a strong combo.

My Team:

A List:

*Adam Scott
Jim Furyk

B List:

*Stewart Cink
*Kevin Sutherland
Anthony Kim
Paul Casey

C List:

*Trevor Immelman
Luke Donald

I’m starting Adam, but if Jim plays well I might put him in the later rounds. Cink and Sutherland are the most consistent of the four B Listers, and I added Paul Casey as he played well at The Masters and has enormous potential. With the C, I’m sticking with last weeks picks with Immelman and Donald. They are the best two C Listers by far.

Thanks guys, good luck this week!
