Romancing Canada's Indigenous People



Since I enjoy playing Fantasy Golf, I thought I’d devote Fridays to my picks for the PGA Tour and the European Tour.  Starting Thursday, on the PGA Tour, they’ll be in Canada at the Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ontario for the RBC Canadian Open.

Across the pond in Hamburg, Germany at the Porsche European Open, stars of the European Tour, including Patrick Reed, Bryson DeChambeau, and Paul Casey will be teeing it up.

Here are my picks!

European Tour Fantasy Game for Porsche Open:

Patrick Reed (USA)
Adrian Otaegui (Spain)
Scott Hend (Australia)
Soren Kjeldsen (Sweden)
Paul Casey (England)
Pat Perez (USA) *****

The asterisks means I get double the points on this player.  In other words, I’m betting this is the guy who has the best chance at winning the tournament.  I picked Pat because he’s a consistent player and he did well at The Open.

PGA Fantasy Golf for RBC Canadian Open:

JB Holmes (USA)
Bubba Watson (USA)
Tony Finau (USA)
Tommy Fleetwood (England)
Matt Kuchar (USA)
Nick Watney (USA

“Benched” means these two players are sitting on my bench, waiting for me to do a swap.  A swap happens if one of my four picks aren’t doing well.  Let’s say Tommy is already (God forbid!) 4 over par and the cut is 2 under par.  Then I swap out Tommy for either Matt or Nick.  Am I being clear as mud?  LOL.

PGA One and Done for RBC Canadian Open:

This means I have to be pretty accurate with who I think will win the tournament.  I chose Kevin Kisner of the USA. He did well at The Open.  My fingers are crossed he’s not suffering from jet lag and a “major” hangover.

Golf Channel Fantasy for RBC Canadian Open:

Brooks Koepka (USA)
Matt Jones (Australia)
Tom Lovelady (USA)
Jonas Blixt (Sweden)
Patrick Rodgers (USA)
Jamie Lovemark (USA)

Golf Channel Fantasy One and Done for RBC Canadian Open:

This works the same way as the PGA’s One and Done.  I chose the USA’s Chez Reavie.

Yeah, I didn’t chose one single Canuck LOL.  Why?  Because it’s rare for someone to win their “home” tournament.  Hopefully the Canuckanuck golfers prove me wrong and one of them wins!
