This star studded event will be headlined by the likes of Rickie Fowler, Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and many more.
Defending champion Padraig Harrington and his sudden-death playoff rival Daniel Berger will be there also.
With the conclusion of the Northern Trust Open, and the Masters approaching in early April, we can expect some exceptional golfing from the players this weekend.
This special venue was redesigned a little over a decade ago by Jack Nicklaus and is home to the infamous Bear Trap, the trio of holes # 15, 16 and 17. They’re known to be fairly tough holes usually decimating competitors’ scorecards. The holes in questions are full of water hazards and sharp edges, always certainly leaving a handful of players shaking their heads and disappointed. It appears that sicne 2007, the mean stretch accounts for 40 % of all the triple bogeys and 33 % of the double bogeys.
The top 2 ranked players on the TOUR, Jordan Spieth and Jason day will be absent.
2012 champion and former # 1 golfer Rory McIlroy is expected to have a great tournament despite his fallout in the last round at the Northern Trust Open, ironically, exactly what happened last year at the PGA National when his wire to wire victory slept away from him after 3 rounds. Fantasy Golf owners should expect his value to lower making him a great pick. He’s on a 3 straight top 6 finish run and will be hoping to close the deal this time.
Surprisingly, Patrick Reed’s accuracy off the tee and experience on this course may help him have an edge on his peers this weekend.
Finally, Rickie Fowler will also be a DFS favourite to watch, with already 3 top 5 finishes this season.
