To help you pick your fantasy foursome this week, here are the top-30 fantasy golfers for the 2014 PGA Championship.
Donald has just one top-20 finish (T8 in 2011) in his last six appearances at the PGA Championship. He will be a very risky pick this week in Louisville.
After withdrawing from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational this weekend, it is highly unlikely Woods will play in the PGA Championship. Even if he does suit up, though, don’t expect much of a fantasy performance from TW.
Day also withdrew from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational last weekend with a vertigo symptoms. JD will be a dangerous fantasy option considering the PGA Championship tees off in under a week.
Haas hasn’t exactly been tearing it up lately, as he has just one top-20 finishes in his last 10 tournaments. However, he has still made the cut in all 22 of his tournament appearances this season.
Simpson is normally a contender in every tournament, but he ahs struggled in majors this season. He has missed the cut twice (Masters & British Open) and finished with a T45 at the U.S. Open.
Kaymer shocked the world by winning the U.S. Open earlier in the year. Since then, though, the German has finished outside the top-50 in back-to-back tournaments.
Johnson is sixth on the tour in Driving Accuracy (71.5%), 17th in Greens Hit in Regulation (68.3%), and 25th in putting (1.748). The heavy-hitter will be a sleeper candidate to watch this week.
Na has nine top-15’s on the season. He may not be a reliable option, but he will be worth a shot within the top-25.
Westwood is coming off a T19 at the Bridgestone Invitational, but it was the first time he made the cut in four tournaments. However, fantasy fans shouldn't overlook the fact that he has two top-eight finishes in the last five years at the PGA Championship.
Mahan has three top-20 finishes at the PGA Championship in the last seven years alone. He will be a decent sleeper to look for after the top-15 names are off the board.
Walker has two top-10 finishes and a T26 at the three majors this season. He has proven that he can be a reliable second golfer in every tournament he turns in a card.
Dufner is the defending champion, but he has struggled for much of the summer. The Duffman hasn’t cracked the top-50 in four straight tournament appearances.
Schwartzel quietly has nine top-20 finishes in 14 events this season. He will be a bargain after the top-15 golfers come off the board.
The Canadian has become rather hit-or-miss this summer. However, DeLaet is still second on the tour in Greens Hit in Regulation and third in Total Driving.
English finally seems to be over of his slump, as he has two top-10 finishes in his last four tournaments.
Mickelson has finished inside the top-25 in five consecutive worldwide tournaments. He even shot a season-best 62 in the final round of the Bridgestone Invitational last weekend en route to a T15. Lefty won’t be a threat to win it this week, but he should be a safe bet to crack the top-15.
Leishman has quietly racked up four top-11 finishes in his last five tournament appearances.
Since winning the Masters, Watson has been on cruise control. He has missed the cut in two of his past five tournament appearances and he has just one top-15 finish.
After his dream run (10 top-10’s in his first 14 AP), Kuchar has cooled off a bit this summer. He has only one top-25 finish in the last four tournaments.
Bradley has racked up three straight top-20 finishes, including a T4 at the Bridgestone Invitational and a T4 the Greenbrier Classic.
Fowler is on a roll right now. He has cracked the top-15 in four consecutive tournaments, including a T2 at the U.S. Open and a T2 at the British Open. Fowler will be a hot commodity this week at Valhalla.
Snedeker has made the cut in seven straight tournaments, including three top-11 finishes.
McDowell is red-hot right now. He has racked up three consecutive top-10 finishes.
In his last 12 tournaments, Furyk has 11 top-20 finishes, including four straight top-12’s. The veteran is in the middle of a serious hot-streak right now.
Stenson made the cut in all three majors this year, including two top-15 performances.
Before his back-to-back finishes outside of the top-35, Spieth racked up five straight top-20 finishes. Don’t read too much into the kid’s recent slump, because he will be a major threat to hoist the trophy this Sunday.
Rose has eight top-15 finishes in his last nine tournaments worldwide, including a win at the Quicken Loans Nationals and a win at the Scottish Open.
Garcia has competed in every single tournament this season. He has 10 top-11 finishes in 11 appearances this year, including three second place finished in a row.
Scott continues his quest to reclaim the top spot in golf. He has 10 top-15 finishes in 12 tournaments this season, including five straight top-10 finishes.
McIlroy is coming off back-to-back wins, including a win at the British Open last month. He will be the top fantasy option this week in Valhalla.
