To help you pick your fantasy foursome this week, here are the top-30 fantasy golfers for the 2014 British Open.
Moore has three top-20 finishes in the last four tournaments, including a T5 at the Travelers Championship and a T7 at the JDC. Unfortunately, he will have a tough time competing this week with the star-studded field.
Schwartzel has 11 top-20 finishes this season worldwide. He won’t be worth reaching for, but he will be reliable enough to grab inside the top-30.
Before his miserable T88 at the Greenbrier Classic, Steel posted back-to-back top-five finishes.
Haas has just one top-20 finish at the Open Championship and he has missed the cut twice. He will come with some risk this week.
Kirk missed the cut last week at the John Deere Classic and it was the first time he went home early this season. He still has 12 top-30 finishes on the year and will be worth grabbing as a late round flyer.
English has seven top-10 finishes on the year and he is shockingly eighth on the tour in Greens Hit In Regulation. The course will be brutal in Liverpool this week and English’s short game may come in handy.
Simpson has struggled at times this year, but he always shows up at Majors throughout his career. Simpson has made the cut in eight of his last 11 major tournaments and will be worth a late-round gamble.
Johnson is coming off a solo second place finish at the JDC and he has picked up his game at the perfect time.
Bradley is 2-for-2 at the Open Championship, including a T15 last year. Keegs has proven that he can compete in these big tournaments.
Na is finally turning his season around, as he has three top-15 finishes in his last four tournament appearances.
Woods continues to claim he is ahead of schedule and close to 100% healthy. However, Tiger will be a risky pick until he proves he is back in top of his game. Let someone else deal with the headache.
Snedeker is over his midseason slump. The veteran has three straight top-21 finishes and should be considered a strong second golfer in all formats this week.
Todd has six straight top-17 finishes. He is playing the best golf of his career and will be the ultimate second golfer this week.
Walker has quietly racked up four top-10 finishes in his last seven tournaments and will once again be flying under the radar this week.
Westwood has two top-three finishes at the Open Championship over the last four years. He won't get much attention, but he has proven that he can compete in this event.
Stricker has made every cut this season the veteran has six top-20 finishes on the year. He is as safe as they come this week.
Dufner may have missed the cut in his last two tournaments, but the reigning PGA Champion recorded back-to-back top-20 performances before his cold stretch.
Kaymer enters the tournament riding high. Not only did he win the U.S. Open last month, but he also won THE PLAYERS Championship in the middle of May.
Fowler is the middle of a breakout season and he heads to Liverpool following back-to-back top-15 finishes.
JD posted a T4 at the U.S. Open and followed it up with a T18 at the Travelers. Day is over that nagging thumb injury and he will be ready to go at the British Open.
In 15 worldwide events, Garcia has posted 10 top-12 finishes. The Spaniard will be a great first golfer to grab this week across the pond.
Stenson has been on fire this spring. He has six top-10 finishes in his last seven tournaments around the globe.
Spieth is red-hot at the moment. He has racked up five straight top-20 finishes and will be top-10 fantasy option this week in Liverpool.
Kuchar has 14 top-20 finishes on the year, including 10 top-10 finishes. He has become the safest bet on the tour.
Johnson continues to be the best all-around golfer on the tour. He is currently second on the tour in Driving Distance (311.4 yards/hole), sixth in putting (1.729), and 20th in Greens Hit In Regulation.
Rose is coming off back-to-back wins at the Quicken Loans Nationals and the Scottish Open. He will come off the board very early this week at the British Open.
Watson has eight top-10’s on the year, including a win at the Masters. He is the best power golfer on the tour and will get plenty of extra roll out of his drives on the hard fairways in England.
Mickelson won this event last year and placed second in 2011. Lefty will finally be worth reaching for this week in all fantasy formats.
McIlroy is having a breakout season. He has cracked the top-25 in all 11 stateside tournaments and he has racked up another four worldwide.
Scott has cracked the top-15 in eight of his 10 tournament appearances and hasn’t missed a cut this year. He hasn’t participated in a tournament since his T9 at the U.S. Open, so he will be well rested at the British Open.
