All the big names may be in the states at the WGC Cadillac Championship, but us fantasy golf junkies always love a challenge. For those of you willing to follow the Puerto Rico Open this week, here are the top-10 fantasy golfers.
10. Robert Streb
Robert Streb – Streb has made the cut in all four of his tournament appearances this year. He finished 11th here in 2013 in his PRO debut and will be worth a shot after the more popular golfers come off the board.
9. Johnson Wagner
Johnson Wagner – Wagner’s last trip to the island was a 42nd place finish back in 2010, but he is one of the most polished veterans making the trip this week.
8. Morgan Hoffman
Morgan Hoffman – Hoffman finished 16th at the Farmers this year and 15th at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. The Hoff will be a great sleeper to roll with in Rio Grande.
7. Brian Stuard
Brian Stuard - Stuard shot an 18 under last year, including three rounds under 68.
6. Dicky Pride
Dicky Pride - The 44-year-old knows this course very well, as he tied for eighth last year and 20th in 2012.
5. Jhonattan Vegas
Jhonattan Vegas – Vegas is one of the heavy-hitters making the trip to PR. He is ranked 13th on the tour in Driving Distance (301.5 yards) and should abuse the open fairways of Trump International this week.
4. Ryo Ishikawa
Ryo Ishikawa – Ishikawa has top-10 finishes on the year He is 12th on the tour in Greens Hit in Regulation and will be able to show off his short game on the beautiful island greens.
3. Michael Bradley
Michael Bradley – Bradley has two career wins (2009 & 2011) in Puerto Rico and finished 15th in 2010. He will be a very safe pick this week given his past success at Trump international.
2. Michael Thompson
Michael Thompson – Thompson has three top-19 appearances in his last five tournaments. He may be a risky pick in tournaments with the big guns, but he should shine this week with the limited field.
1. Scott Brown
Scott Brown - Brown will naturally be a popular pick this week as he won the PRO in 2013 with an impressive -20. However, he also has two top-four finishes on the year and is having a career season.
