Welcome to Balls in the Air, where I size up my Fantasy Golf picks of the week, featuring guys to watch (or not) and interesting story lines. Disclaimer: Don’t yell at me if my picks suck. There’s no mathematical formula to my attempt at predicting something as random as golf scores.
Well, good morning! I just took a redeye from Seattle back to NYC and I’m feeling awfully chipper this morning. Okay, not really. But I’m writing up “Balls in the Air” before I take a nap. I’m supposed to go to Turning Stone this week, but that’s still TBD — I made those plans before I knew I was going to the PGA Championship (Milwaukee, here I come!). I’ll decide depending on my mood after napping.
Alrighty, so who’s going to shoot 59 this week? Well, probably no one because I think the course is a little more defensible against the long-hitters and it’s setup to be a tad more like a major. Let’s be real — if someone else comes in with a 59 this year, it’ll take away from the novelty even more. Soon it’s going to be like coming in with a 65. No big deal.
