It took Tim Clark 206 tries to win his first PGA Tournament, but he did it in outstanding fashion by firing a final round of 5-under, when everyone else was just struggling to make pars. Yes, Clark would have made Bryce a very happy man this week, only Bryce didn’t have enough confidence in the pint-sized veteran to play him above such superstars as Woods, Cink and Cabrera. Thus instead of sole possession of second place, Bryce now sits uncomfortably in fourth, with Cody and Jm right on his tail. But Tim Clark wasn’t the only interesting fantasy story this week. Bo Van Pelt notched his third top five in the last four tournaments, and has 125 points in that stretch (five less than Brent’s entire team has managed). With another solid week, The Beast has shown us that he is for real, and with the best depth in our league he could be around for a while. Phil Mickelson decided to be a hero again on Sunday and instead of going for a very respectable top ten, decided he needed to try and eagle ever hole, ending up in a tie for 17th. Lee Westwood also had a meltdown of sorts on Sunday. He found the drink on 17, but still managed to salvage a top five and all the glorious points that go along with it. Jm had a stellar week, earning 140 points, most of his points coming from his two top fives by Allenby and Slocum. Then there was Brent. The train-wreck continued this week when he managed only 10 points, with all three of his big guns earning him goose eggs. Had he played Ben Crane and J.B. Holmes he would have managed a respectable week, although you cant fault him for benching them as they haven’t earned many points the last few weeks.
Well friends, that’s how the fantasy played out this week. Next week is the Valero Texas Open. It probably won’t be a high scoring week, but with the current log jam between two and three, and the closeness of four, five, and six, it can matter a lot. Don’t forget to get your rosters in by Thursday, and good luck to all.
