Everyone expected to see two-time AT&T champion, Tiger Woods, at Congressional this year, but an elbow injury will keep him from participating this weekend in Maryland. Even without the top-ranked golfer in the world attending the event, there are still several fantasy worthy golfers to take a shot on this week. To help you draft this week, here are the top-20 fantasy golfers for the 2013 AT&T National.
20. John Huh
John Huh – During his first trip to Congressional last year, the kid finished 17th. Huh has an outstanding short game, so expect him to show it this week in Maryland.
19. Freddie Jacobson
Freddie Jacobson - Jacobson has severely struggled since his streak of top-25’s came to an end. The veteran normally does well on shorter courses, so expect him to bounce back this week with a top-20 finish.
18. Jhonattan Vegas
Jhonattan Vegas – Vegas has only played in three events this season and has not a made a cut yet. However, the Venezuelan finished fourth here last year, so that alone will make him a popular pick this week.
17. Graham DeLaet
Graham DeLaet – The Canadian has five consecutive top-26 finishes heading to Congressional. He even finished third at the Travelers last week and is playing the best golf of his career.
16. Kevin Chappell
Kevin Chappell – Chappell quietly has three top-10 finishes this year. Look for him to once again turn some heads this week in Maryland, as he tends to shines on these tougher courses.
15. Harris English
Harris English – English has four top-10 finishes in 2013 and is in the middle of a breakout campaign. The 23-year-old could surprise this weekend, so don’t be afraid to take a shot on him after the big names come off the board.
14. Ken Duke
Ken Duke – After finishing 101st in the FedEx St. Jude Classic, Duke shockingly won the Travelers Championship last weekend with a score of 12 under.
13. K.J. Choi
K.J. Choi – Choi won the inaugural AT&T National in 2007 and the veteran will always be a threat to win at Congressional.
12. Scott Stallings
Scott Stallings – Before placing 54th at the U.S. Open, Stalling recorded three consecutive top-four finishes.
11. Robert Garrigus
Robert Garrigus – Garrigus has three top-25 finishes in his last four trips to Congressional, including a fourth place finish last year.
10. Ryan Palmer
