UPDATED Fantasy Golf Picks-Farmers Insurance Open

At Torrey Pines, Tiger Woods is always a solid fantasy golf option. The fact that he’s on the opposite side of the draw from most of the A-List makes him an even better pick at this week’s Farmers Insurance Open. Mandatory Credit: Allan Henry-USA TODAY Sports

As I explained in yesterday’s post, the two-course format of the Farmers Insurance Open can be utilized to your advantage in Fantasy Golf this week. The North course plays easier than the South so its important to have active players on the North as often as possible.

To do that, I had to shuffle my lineup a bit. I’m starting four players on the North for round 1 and will switch to all my bench players for round 2. I’ll see where they stand headed into round 3 to decide from there on. Here’s my updated picks with explanations for the new additions. For breakdown of the rest check out yesterday’s post:

A-List

Round 1: Bubba Watson

Round 2: Tiger Woods- With most of the A-List on the other side, this seems like a good time to play my first Tiger card. He has an incredible history here with a total of six wins although he hasn’t played here much recently. He missed the cut last week in Abu Dhabi which may make him less popular of a pick but he’s always a good option at Torrey Pines.

B-List

Round 1: Dustin Johnson

Round 1: Keegan Bradley

Round 2: Nick Watney

Round 2: Marc Leishman- Coming off a top ten at Waialae two weeks ago, Leishman knows the course with a t2 in 2010 and a  T9 in 2011 before a t52 last season. In good form coming into this one, he could be headed for another top 10.

C-List

Round 1: Brian Stuard-Stuard can go low in a hurry as he demonstrated last week flirting with a 59 before “settling” for a 62 on his way to a t10 at La Quinta. It was his second top 10 in as many events this season after starting with a t5 in Hawaii. This will be his second Farmers Insurance Open after he missed the cut in 2010.

Round 2: John Rollins
