Tour Championship field by the rankings Fantasy Forecast: Hey, why not go out on a limb with the hottest guy on the planet? He knows if he wants to do something special, he has two more chances: East Lake and the Ryder Cup. After such a promising start to , Kevin Kisner has had a rough go, with only two top 10s posted since winning at the RSM Classic.
Breakthrough season gets a cherry on the top as Russell Knox puts on a fairways-and-greens clinic. His win also creates a wild numbers-crunching session to see who wins the FedEx Cup. Gary Woodland has quietly had a nice playoff run and if he were to win it would give Ryder Cup captains a dilemma. With the forecast for St. Louis as hot and muggy all week, it favors Tiger. Tiger loves brawny s-style courses with eight wins apiece at Firestone, Torrey Pines and Bay Hill alone.
Bellerive fits the profile perfectly. Muscular Kiwi Ryan Fox is one of the biggest hitters on any tour, and when he keeps it in the park, he can contend anywhere. He made the cut at both the U. Open T41 and British Open T39 , so he knows what it feels like to be around for the weekend in a major.
Bellerive is tree-lined with deep, penal bunkers and big greens. Iron play should be a major factor, and it all sounds like a fit for him. Also, if you like a history angle, Bellerive hosted the U. Open that Gary Player won to complete his own career slam. Pat Perez is still riding a career rebirth, and he got a taste of the fire at Carnoustie. I can see him playing his way back into the thick of it and hanging there even longer than he did at the Open.
Plenty will focus on a disappointing finish at Firestone, but even this week I saw plenty to be encouraged by. I had Stanley locked in as a sleeper last week; his runner-up finish at Firestone makes him slightly less sleepy but I like the way his ballstriking sets up for Bellerive. Rory wins and he wins big.
My sleeper is Keegan Bradley.
