Preview:

The Greenbrier Classic always promises to be an exciting tournament. It is a fairly open golf course and the winner is certain to have a score well under par.

Last year, Ted Potter Jr. finished with an eagle/birdie to force a playoff hole with Troy Kelly. TPJ went on to birdie the ensuing playoff hole and win the Greenbrier Classic. Both golfers will be attending the event at White Sulphur Springs this week, so both should be considered mid-level fantasy options.

To help you draft this week, here are the top 20 fantasy golfers for the 2013 Greenbrier Classic.

JD Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Louis Oosthuizen – The Oozie has only finished eight stateside tournaments this season, but he still has three top-19 finishes. He will be the ultimate hit-or-miss option this week.

Jordan Spieth – Spieth is making his debut in West Virginia, but the 19-year-old is having a very solid year. He has five top-10 finishes and is averaging 70.8 strokes per round.

Ted Potter Jr. – Potter Jr. won last year's Greenbrier Classic by beating Troy Kelly in a playoff. TPJ showed that he can dominate this mountainous course, though, so expect him to be a strong sleeper this weekend.

JD Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Scott Stallings – Stallings had three consecutive top-three finishes earlier this summer and was averaging 68.4 strokes per round. He has struggled lately, though, by averaging 74 strokes over his last two tournaments.

NickWatney
Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Watney – Watney has one of the best short games on the tour. He is 11th in Greens Hit In Regulation (68.9%) on the tour and will get plenty of open looks at the green in West Virginia.

13. Stuart Appleby

StuartAppleby
Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Stuart Appleby – Appleby won this event back in 2010 with a score of 22 under and a ridiculous final round of 59. He may not be a top-tier option this week, but he will be a strong sleeper after the big names come off the board.

12. Roberto Castro

RobertoCastro
Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Roberto Castro – Castro settled for second place at the AT&T National after leading a good portion of the second round. He will be playing with a little extra confidence this week, so consider him worth a low-end selection.

11. Keegan Bradley

KeeganBradley
Debby Wong-USA TODAY Sports

Keegan Bradley – After struggling in recent weeks, Bradley rebounded by shooting five under at the Travelers. He is eighth on the tour in Driving Distance (302.6 yards), so expect him to spend a good amount of time on the fairway in Sulphur Springs.
