Fantasy Golf Picks for the AT&T Byron Nelson #FantasyGolf

1. Dustin Johnson: DJ has five straight top-20 finishes including four top-10s in Dallas. I’ll take DJ to win in the “Big D” any time.

2. Charley Hoffman: Charley and the Lone Star State, and he won in San Antonio this year and he was runner-up last year at the Byron Nelson. Hoffman has plenty of momentum go in to the Metroplex, including the win at the Valero Texas Open and top-15 finishes in Hilton Head and New Orleans.

ATT Byron Nelson

3. Matt Kuchar: Kuchar boast a solid history in Dallas having finished T-15 or better in three of his last five trips there and he finished T-3 last week at The Players Championship all with a big smile.

4. Jordan Spieth: The world No. 2 finished T-16 here as a 16-year-old amateur back in 2010, even with a missed cut at The Players you should never count Jordan out at home.

5. Louis Oosthuizen: The South African finished T-28 last week, T-15 finish at the Masters and he had finished T-11 last year.

6. Sergio Garcia: Garcia won this event in 2004, but he hasn’t been back since a T-20 finish in 2011 because in the past it has conflicted with the Open de Espana. Despite being unfairly made the anti-Tiger early in his playing career by the U.S. golfing media and the lack of a major, Sergio is always one to watch and currently at #15 in the World Golf Rankings.


7. Ryan Palmer: Palmer has four top-25 finishes in the last five years at this event and was T-23 last week in Florida.

8. Brooks Koepka: The bomber finished T-35 at the Players. Koepka was T-16 in Dallas just a year ago, including a 64 in the third round.
