Summerhays finished 13th at the John Deere Classic with an outstanding score of 14 under. However, he hasn’t played since early July. He will be extremely rusty in this tournament and won’t be worth a look at all this week.

4. Bill Haas

Haas has just one top-20 finish in his last 10 tournaments. He was once a safe bet to crack the top-25 week after week, but he has suddenly fallen apart this summer. He will be worth a shot inside the top-30, but don’t reach for him beyond that.

3. Keegan Bradley

In his three PGA Championships, Bradley won it all in 2011, posted a T3 in 2012, and a T19 in 2013. As a result of his past success, Bradley will be a very popular fantasy option. Unfortunately, Bradley has been maddeningly inconsistent this season. In his last nine tournaments, Bradley has missed the cut three times, finished outside the top-25 three times, and cracked the the top-five three times. Let someone else pay top dollar for Bradley.

2. Phil Mickelson

Mickelson has just one top-10 finish in his last six tournaments. He will likely be drafted within the top-10 fantasy options this week, but Lefty will once again come with a good deal of risk. Let someone else gamble on Mickelson this week.

1. Tiger Woods

Woods has been back for a couple weeks, but he has yet to put together two solid rounds of golf back-to-back. He continues to hit play in the rough and the veteran has looked like a shell of himself. He will once again draw a good deal of attention this week, but he simply won’t be worth the asking price until he shows that he is completely healthy.
