Shell Houston Open

Fantasy Golf One and Done

The One and Done format is tricky given you have to optimize each player to the best of his abilities – picking a hot hand in a tournament that fits a player’s skills better than most. We’ll do our best all year long to help you choose the right player at the right time.

The list of contenders are:

  • Already used –
    • Louis Oosthuizen
    • Charl Schwartzel
    • Phil Mickelson
    • J.B. Holmes
  • Saving for later –
    • Sergio Garcia
    • Jordan Spieth
    • Rickie Fowler
    • Dustin Johnson
  • Final options –
    • Henrik Stenson – we really like Stenson this week, though we’re hoping that we can find a way to not use him.
    • Brooks Koepka – first time to Houston but he may be our way to avoid a Stenson OAD this week. He’s got a 6th course fit ranking.
    • Ryan Palmer – 7th place last year and two other decent finishes. Making cuts recently but hasn’t been flashy.
    • Keegan Bradley – three top 10s here with two other made cuts since 2011. Finally made a cut last week at the Arnold Palmer, so there is reason for optimism.

Our choice this week will be Brooks Koepka. Stenson is the obvious choice but we still have 7 or more tournaments where he may be a better play when the stakes are higher. Koepka has been playing well and had a nice Match Play run on a new course, so hopefully his #6 course fit will translate into a successful first try in Houston.
