The Mulligan: Fantasy Golf Picks for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans

If you have been following The Mulligan, you likely experienced a significant boost in your fantasy golf rankings last week. Last week’s sleeper pick, Brian Gay, decided that he needed a goofy red tartan jacket to match his neon green pants, so he went out and beat the field by 10 shots. Boo Weekley came through last week as well with a tie for 13. Leonard and Furyk let us down, but if you started Gay you should have outperformed any other expert last week.

This week the Tour heads to Cajun Country for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Lets keep the momentum going this week with some good fantasy golf picks. I like Steve Stricker, Nick Watney and John Merrick this week.

Stricker finished 11th in this event in 2007, although his other two visits to TPC Louisiana have been ugly. This year, Stricker has been on fire, finishing in the top 25 seven times. He played very well at The Masters, and his timing is as good as it gets right now.

Watney is another momentum play. I haven’t seen him do anything wrong yet this year. Nick is another guy who played well at the Masters, to go along with his already nice 2009 resume. He has finished in the top 25 eight times in nine starts this season, and he has a win at this course. He is a no-brainer.

John Merrick finished in a tie for 6th at the Masters two weeks ago. He has 3 top ten finishes this season, and he plays well at TPC Louisiana (T7th, T18th). Merrick is also a good pick this week.

Stricker, Merrick and Watney are all having great years and this week should be no exception. Lets keep the momentum going toward the top of the Fantasy Golf rankings.
