All the big names will be heading to Doral this week, so it should make for some very exciting golf. To help you pick your team, here are the top-25 fantasy golfers for the 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship.
25. Brandt Snedeker
Brandt Snedeker – In seven events this season, Snedeker has missed the cut twice and has finished outside of the top-50 three times. He will be a risky pick this week in Florida.
24. Jason Day
Jason Day – Day won the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship and has three top-nine finishes on the year. However, he has never done well in Florida and will likely struggle again, so don’t reach for the Ozzie this week.
23. Victor Dubuisson
Victor Dubuisson – Dubuisson showed he could compete with the big boys last week at Dove Mountain with the second place finish. The Frenchman has an eye for the hole and is not afraid to let one rip.
22. Phil Mickelson
Phil Mickelson - Mickelson missed the cut last week at the Honda Classic and has been a shell of himself. Lefty won't be worth a top-20 pick until he shows that he has come out of his funk.
21. Tiger Woods
Tiger Woods – Woods is the seven-time champion here, but lingering concern about his back will cause his value to plummet this week.
20. Matt Kuchar
Matt Kuchar – Kuchar has four top-10 finishes in five appearances this year and he has averaged an impressive 69.1 strokes per round.
19. Luke Donald
Luke Donald – Donald’s eighth place finish at the Honda Classic was his best performance of the season. The Englishman will be worth a flyer this week in Miami.
18. Rickie Fowler
Rickie Fowler – Fowler may have finished 24th last weekend at the Honda Classic, but he recorded four rounds under par (69, 69, 69, 70). He recently became a student of Butch Harmon and it has instantly helped the youngster's all-around game.
17. Charl Schwartzel
Charl Schwartzel – In his last eight tournaments around the globe, Schwartzel has six top-17 finishes.
16. Hunter Mahan
Hunter Mahan – Mahan has three top-nine finishes in his last four match play/stroke tournaments.
15. Justin Rose
Justin Rose – Rose won the Cadillac Championship back in 2012 and finished eighth last year, but he has been dealing with shoulder issues all year. He decided not to play at the Honda Classic to rest, and while he has notoriously done well at Doral Trump, lingering concerns about his shoulder will certainly cause his value to drop this week.
14. Graham DeLaet
Graham DeLaet – DeLaet has four top-seven finishes this year and the Canadian has made the cut in six of his seven tournament appearances.
13. Keegan Bradley
Keegan Bradley - Bradley has cracked the top-20 in seven of his nine tourneys this season. He is having an amazing season and the 27-year-old is starting to live up to his lofty expectations again.
12. Graeme McDowell
Graeme McDowell – McDowell is one of the best sleepers to look for this year. He has four top-seven finishes on the year and the Scotsman will always finish on the right side of par.
11. Jimmy Walker
Jimmy Walker – Walker has three wins already and he has cracked the top-21 in eight of his 10 tournaments appearances this year.
10. Webb Simpson
Webb Simpson – Simpson has five top-10 finishes this season and has averaged an impressive 68.2 strokes per round. He is third on the tour in putting and will be able to showcase his talents on the crisp greens at Doral.
9. Jordan Spieth
Jordan Spieth – Spieth has recorded four top-19 finishes in his last four tourneys alone and the 20-year-old has matured into one of the best golfers in the world.
8. Harris English
Harris English – English has six top-10 finishes on the year, including four in his last five starts. He is truly having a breakout fantasy season.
7. Jim Furyk
Jim Furyk – Furyk has six top-10 finishes in his last 10 stroke-play events.
6. Sergio Garcia
Sergio Garcia - Garcia has eight top-10s in his last 11 starts around the world. The Spaniard will be one of the first players off the board this week.
5. Zach Johnson
Zach Johnson – Johnson has been in a minor slump lately with back-to-back 33rd place finishes. However, he is still fourth on the tour in birdies per round (4.64), fourth in putting (1.702), first in Driving Accuracy (77.5%), and third in Green Hit in Regulation (75.5%).
4. Adam Scott
Adam Scott – Scott has only participated in three tournaments this year, but he has cracked the top-12 in all three. Look for another top-12 performance from Scott this week at Doral.
3. Bubba Watson
Bubba Watson – Watson has four top-nine finishes on the year, including three straight.
2. Rory McIlroy
Rory McIlroy – McIlroy couldn’t put the nail in the coffin last week at the Honda Classic, but he has still posted his fifth top-11 finish in six worldwide tourneys. Consider him a top-five option this week.
1. Dustin Johnson
Dustin Johnson – Johnson has four top-six finishes in his last five events, including a win at the HSBC Championship. He is currently first on the tour in GIR and deserves to be the top pick this week.
