This week the Tour heads to Akron, Ohio to famous Firestone Country Club for the Bridgestone Invitational. There are plenty of big names in the field this week so this should be a great tournament to watch. Tiger is coming in with momentum and he has been known to play well here, but there are many other great players eyeing victory this week.
Retief Goosen should play well this week too. He has finished in the Top-5 in his last two starts and he plays Firestone well. He finished fourth here last season and looks to possibly improve on that finish this year. He will be in my fantasy golf lineup this week.
Stewart Cink makes his first start since beating out Tom Watson at The Open Championship in a 4 hole playoff to take home the Claret Jug. Cink is riding high on that victory and his momentum should carry over onto Firestone this week. He has historically played well here including 2 Top-10 finishes and a victory in 2004. Look for the Open Champ to have another good showing this week.
Finally, I think Luke Donald will play well at Firestone. Donald has a great track record on this course and he is due for a good performance. He has 2 straight Top-25 finishes here in his last 2 starts including a T-8th finish. He already has 5 Top-10 finishes in 2009 and he is looking to add a victory to his stat sheet. To top it off, he is ranked 2nd on Tour in putting average and 1st in sand save percentage.
Good luck this week and lets keep moving to the top of the fantasy golf rankings!
