Fantasy Fix: Can Keegan Bradley end his drought at Bay Hill?
This week's Arnold Palmer Invitational is the last leg of the Florida Swing and it marks the last marquee event -- our apologies to the two Texas tournaments -- before the Masters. Who will be shaking hands with The King at Bay Hill on Sunday evening? A look at our weekly Yahoo! fantasy golf lineup:
Starters -- (A-List): Adam Scott. He's finished third at Bay Hill two of the past five times he's played (once anchoring and once not). He's also missed the cut twice in those five appearances. Considering he didn't make it to the weekend at the Valspar -- ending a tour-best streak of 45 cuts -- we're betting he's more likely to do the former.
(B-List): Rickie Fowler. Fowler finally showed signs of life in 2015 with a T-12 at Doral. We know he's well rested having gone "beachin" with girlfriend Alexis Randock and he returns to a course where he finished T-3 two years ago. Can you imagine the millennial hysteria if Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler won back-to-back weeks?
(B-List): Ian Poulter. He gave the Honda away and resurfaced on the lead board at the Valspar before fading. At Bay Hill, he's also been a fixture having finished T-21 or better in his last four starts, including a solo third in 2012.
(C-List): Keegan Bradley. Keegan's last PGA Tour win was the 2012 Bridgestone Invitational, but two of his closest calls since have come at Bay Hill with a runner-up last year and a T-3 in 2013.
Bench/Backups: Henrik Stenson, Jason Day, Graeme McDowell, and Kevin Na.
Knockout/One-and-done pick: Keegan Bradley. Much like we were wondering a week ago how Jordan Spieth only had one PGA Tour title, we're still wondering how it's been more than two and a half years since Bradley last won. He's trending in the right direction at Bay Hill, though, and this will the last time he's allowed to anchor in front of Arnie. So long live The King, and let's hope for one last hurrah from Bradley's long putter.
Previously used: Paul Casey (Honda), Jason Day (Famers -- WINNER!), Luke Donald (Valspar), Jamie Donaldson (Doral), Bill Haas (Riviera), Charles Howell III (Sony), Dustin Johnson (Pebble), Geoff Ogilvy (Hyundai), Ryan Palmer (Humana), Brendan Steele (Phoenix).
