Last week produced one of the more improbable PGA Tour wins this year. Troy Merritt had missed five consecutive cuts before winning the Quicken Loans National by three strokes over Rickie Fowler. Merritt didn’t do anything special early in the week but shot 61-67 on the weekend to secure a well deserved victory. The field this week is a completely different animal though…not surprising for a WGC event that has no cut and a total purse over $9 million (the winner takes home over $1.5 million). The event is once again being held at the Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. The course will play around 7,400 yards and is only a par 70. There are only two par 5s, the first of which is easily reachable and the second is 650+ yards. Past winners (McIlroy, Woods, Bradley, Scott, Mahan, etc.) have a ton of class. Strokes gained tee to green and proximity from 150+ yards are going to be huge this week.
Below are my fantasy golf power rankings for this week. Feel free to throw me any feedback you have. Good luck this week.
