The 2014 Masters is finally here and all the big names (sans Tiger Woods) will be making the trip to Augusta. The big tournaments can make picking a fantasy lineup very difficult, though, because there are almost too many golfers to choose from. To help you pick your lineup, here are five fantasy golfers to avoid during the 2014 Masters.

Singh hasn’t cracked the top-25 at the Masters in the last five years. He was once a guaranteed top-10 fantasy pick at Augusta, but the 51-year-old simply doesn’t have the stamina to compete anymore.

Jones won the Shell Houston Open last week and he was the last invitation issued for the prestigious tournament. As a result, he has gained a good deal of attention heading into the major. He is far too inexperienced to warrant a fantasy pick, though, and should be avoided at all costs this week.

3. Ian Poulter

Poulter has just one top-20 finish (20th) in his last seven stroke/match play tournaments. The veteran heads to Augusta in a rough way and fantasy fans shouldn’t expect too many pars from the Englishman this week.

2. Lee Westwood

Westwood has been rather erratic this season. He is 7-9 with cuts made and the 40-year-old doesn't have a single top-15 finish this year. He may have done well at Augusta historically, but fantasy fans should avoid the struggling veteran in 2014.

Sneeds as been a shell of himself this season. In 10 tournament appearances, Snedeker has missed the cut twice and finished outside of the top-45 five times. He is simply too risky to gamble on this week.
