The Greenbrier - Fantasy Picks

The GreenBrier:
Location: White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia
Course: The Greenbrier
Par: 70
Length: 7,274 yards
Prize Pool: $6,300,000
Last Years Champion: Ted Potter Jr.

The Tour continues this week from West Virginia with the Greenbrier Classic.  As usual, I've evaluated the field and here's the guys I'll be keeping an eye on over the coming days...

Graham DeLaet - He's having an awesome season so far (which I predicted he would have in my article several months ago '2013 PGA Tour Predictions'). Shared eighth place at the AT&T National last week for his second straight top 10 finish (his fifth of the season).  I think he'll be looking to improve upon his T12 finish at Greenbrier last year.  

Webb Simpson - Had last week off following a T5 at the Travelers Championship, his fourth top 10 of the season. He also has two top 10s at The Old White TPC - T9 (2011) and T7 (2012). 

Jason Kokrak - The Chase54 amabassador continues to impress me this season with his long drive and constant improvement.  He's chalked up 3 top 10 finishes so far this season, and I think there'll be more to come before the season is out.

Bill Haas - Surged to victory at the AT&T National with a 66 on Sunday; only golfer under par in every round. Co-leads the PGA TOUR with seven top 10s. Tied for second place at The Greenbrier in 2011.

Phil Mickelson - He hasn't had great success at the event, but after taking two weeks rest, I think Mickelson will be in great form this week.  He had a great performance a couple weeks ago finishing runner-up at the U.S. Open, his fifth top-three finish of the season. 

Here's a look at my completed fantasy golf picks:
