#7 – TOP 10 FANTASY SLEEPERS – 2014 BYRON NELSON

World Golf Ranking
Player
Recent Finishes
Comments
#189
Erik Compton (34) Players
(5) Zurich
(68) RBC
Made four cuts in a row with a top 5 at Zurich. Played well with the best field of the year at the Players.
#125
Rory Sabbatini (38) Players
(8) Wells Fargo
(17) Zurich
Like Compton, Sabbatini has also made 4 straight cuts with three top 20s and two top 10s during that stretch.
#98
Freddie Jacobson (64) Players
(29) Zurich
(19) Shell
His finishes are getting progressively worse the past 5 weeks, but he’s 6 for 6 in cuts made in the past several months so you can never count out a strong finish for Jacobson.
#252
Justin Hicks (17) Players
(69) Wells Fargo
(38) RBC
Played very well at the PLAYERS and has 8 cuts in a row. Plus, he has a good track record at the Byron Nelson. Add it all up and he could be a nice sleeper pick this week.
#212
Robert Streb (23) Wells Fargo
(2) Zurich
(MC) Valero
Unlike the others above, he hasn’t played as many PGA tournaments and only has a 2 cuts made streak going, but one of those was a 2nd place finish at Zurich and the other was a top 25 at Wells.
#147
Martin Flores (48) Players
(3) Wells Fargo
(52) Zurich
Faded on Sunday at the PLAYERS, but he’s been consistent recently with 5 straight cuts made.
#288
Bud Cauley (38) Wells Fargo
(11) Zurich
(MC) Valero
Playing better recently but hasn’t qualified for the big events so yet to be tested against a great field. Of course, the Byron Nelson is not a great field so his hot play could continue this week.
#136
Brendon Todd (MC) Wells Fargo
(38) RBC
(43) Shell
He makes the list not because of his hot play but because he had a nice top 10 at the Valero last month and could do well in similar conditions this week. Has had moderate success at Byron Nelson in past.
#244
Danny Lee (50) Wells Fargo
(25) Zurich
(MC) RBC
Danny makes the sleepers list due to his strong track record at the Byron Nelson and the fact he’s made two straight cuts with one top 25.
#298
Kevin Kisner (6) Wells Fargo
(34) Zurich
(38) RBC
Made 4 straight cuts and is getting progressively better along the way, culminating in a top 10 at the Wells Fargo Championship – a pretty good field. He’ll get a little lost in the shuffle given he didn’t compete at the PLAYERS this week.
