Not only is real golf hard, it turns out that fantasy golf is hard as well! I’m playing as part of The Golf Space’s fantasy golf group on Yahoo! and am having a tough time picking players. I mean, if it isn’t Tiger or Phil, then who the heck do you pick for points?
This week I’ve done especially badly picking guys like Pat Perez and Carl Pettersson, neither of whom I’d know if they knocked on my front door and said hi, I’m Pat Perez (or Carl Pettersson for that matter).
In any case, fantasy golf is sort of fun for just this reason – it’s a chance to get to know some guys who you wouldn’t normally have even noticed. J.J. Henry is from Fairfield Country in Connecticut near where I live. Being a homer, I usually try to get him on my roster as much as possible (bad strategy usually).
