Romancing Canada's Indigenous People



And I’m back with another edition of Fantasy Friday.  My apologies for not posting my picks last week, but I had a special guest blogger who shared how to market your brand new novel.  If you wish to read the fabulous post by Digital Book Girl, go on ahead.  It’s full of handy information.

Back to golf.  Last week, the first tournament for the PGA Tour’s 2018/19 season commenced in Napa, California at the Silverado Resort & Spa.  A big congratulations to Kevin Tway for his tournament win at the Safeway Open.

For the next two weeks, the PGA Tour is in Asia.  The first stop is the CIMB Classic at TPC Kuala Lumpur in Bukit Kiara, Malaysia.  Yes, while we’ve kissed summer goodbye in the northern hemisphere, the pro golfers are enjoying the wonderful hot and sunny weather below the equator.

As for the European Tour, now that they’ve completed the Alfred Dunhill Links with winner Lucas Bjerregaard of Denmark (one of my picks for last week’s fantasy game) claiming the trophy, the Tour will continue the Race to Dubai in Surrey, England at Walton Heath Golf Club’s Old Course for the British Masters.

Here are my fantasy picks:

European Tour:

Justin Rose (England)
Francesco Molinari (Italy) *****
Andrea Pavan (Italy)
Thorbjørn Olesen (Denmark)
Alexander Björk (Sweden)
Jaco Van Zyl (South Africa)

I’m pleased with my picks.  Justin’s game is spot on.  Frankie’s the star of the Ryder Cup.  Andrea is always in the top ten.  Thorbjørn’s a putting machine.  Alexander is always sneaking around.  And Jaco brings some solid PGA Tour experience.  Let’s see if I can finally win something.  Anything LOL.

PGA Tour:

Xander Schauffele (USA)
Gary Woodland (USA)
Paul Casey (England)
Justin Thomas (USA)
Jason Kokrak (USA)
Scott Piercy (USA)

I picked who I believe are the strongest in the field.  All four are at the top of their games.  As for my “benched” picks, let’s hope I don’t have to use them, but if I do, I went with tried and true solid players.

As for the PGA One and Done, I chose Mr. Reliable aka Kevin Chappell.

There are no picks until January for the Golf Channel Fantasy.  They never start until the New Year.
