The week after correctly predicting the winner of a PGA Tour event is nice, but the week after correctly predicting the winner of a MAJOR?! It's a feeling I wish everyone could experience. Of course, everyone could have experienced if you listened to me to tell you that Dustin Johnson was going to win the U.S. Open. (Don't worry, I've been just as insufferable in the office.) In any event, it's time for this fantasy hero to try to do it again. Take a listen as Joel Beall and I break down the field at the Quicken Loans National -- and pat ourselves on the back:
And if you're more old-school and would rather just read my normal weekly picks, here's who I'm taking on my PGA Tour Fantasy Golf team at Congressional:
Patrick Reed: Another major, another disappointment for the young star. But Reed still remains tied for the most top 10s on tour this season (with Dustin Johnson), and more importantly, he ranks No. 1 in strokes gained around-the-green, something that should be a key stat this week on a difficult track.
Jim Furyk: Another guy I touted last week at the U.S. Open (He was 80-to-1 odds!), Furyk looked to be back in vintage form with a second runner-up at Oakmont. I'm counting on the 46-year-old turning back the clock once again at a place where he posted three consecutive top 10s from 2007-2009.
