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.
After a two-week respite, welcome back to Balls in the Air — I’m sure there’s been an empty place in your lives without it, so I’m struggling to stay up 20 or so extra minutes to maintain my commitment. Well, I’m happy to report that I had a smooth trip to Seattle and I’m pumped to get out to Sahalee tomorrow morning to watch Fred Couples and Tom Watson tee off at 7:45AM (yeah, right, considering it’s 1:00AM right now — I’ll catch them on the back nine). Well, honestly, my mind couldn’t be further removed from the Greenbrier Classic with a big major for the 50+ studs and the Women’s British Open. Oh, by the way, fans should cheer for the pros to make aces (lots of them!) at Greenbrier this week. And alas, here are my picks.
