It's time once again to either look like Kings or Fools with our bold 2017 Masters predictions. Our list below are all guys that should be in the hunt on Sunday for the Green Jacket and are clutch golfers that you can build your fantasy golf lineup around.
Here is our list of predictions for the top players and our ultimate winner of the 2017 Masters tournament:
I feel like a proud father watching his son grow up when I watch Matsuyama play. For a couple of years now he has been my go to fantasy golf pick for almost every tournament because he was also so undervalued and now he is such a chalky favorite that he is too hard to slot into fantasy lineups most times. Matsuyama has been lights out the last year or so and has two Top 10 finishes at Augusta the last two years. He will be a costly salary cap pick but I predict at least a Top 15 from him.
Stenson never makes a lot of noise at Augusta but always finds a way to be one of the best players by the end of the week. He is one of the best golfers in the world and should once again be in the hunt for a green jacket this Sunday.
Has not finished worse that 25th since 2008 and that includes 3 Top 10 finishes. So now's the time to fade him right? Nah, I'm not going against his history and I'm picking him for a Top 5 finish and a core DFS play.
For Rory, finishing in the top 10 at the Masters seems to be easy, to win he needs to avoid having that one round where he always seems to lose his touch and cool. We all know that Rory can win any tournament, he's too damn skilled. Problem always is which Rory will show up at this tournament? I don't think the winning one will and I'm feeling a Top 25 at best.
And our 2017 winner is...
What can I say, I don’t really love Spieth but he seems to know Augusta like it's his home course. He has played here 3 times with 1 win and 2 second place finishes. Heck even if he doesn’t win a Top 5 finish seems like a sure shot and how can you fade him in DFS? he's on a tear this year and we say he wins another green jacket for the closet.
