This week in fantasy golf the race for the European Ryder Cup team moves into its penultimate week whilst it's the final week to qualify for the FedEx Cup on the PGA Tour

Fantasy Golf Picks: European Ryder Cup Race Heats Up

This week in fantasy golf it’s the Czech Masters on the European Tour and the Wyndham Championship on the PGA Tour.

Both tournaments are significant. The Czech Masters is the penultimate event before the nine European Ryder Cup automatic qualifiers are finalised and the Wyndham is the final week before the FedEx Cup begins, where only the top 125 in the standings progress.

Last week it was the Men’s Olympic tournament and the John Deere Classic.

Justin Rose won Gold in Rio and Ryan Moore sealed the John Deere to each pick up 405 fantasy points.

The 5 transfers you need to make to your teams this week:

USA 1: Jim Furyk – Fresh off shooting a 58 at the Travelers Championship for the PGA Tour’s lowest-ever round, Furyk should be in your teams this week.

USA 2: Patrick Reed – The Texan finished T11th in the Olympics, finishing with a final round 64 (-7). He won his first PGA Tour event here back in 2013 by beating Jordan Spieth in a play-off.

GB: Andy Sullivan – The Englishman has not missed a cut on the European Tour all season and has two recent top-6 finishes in France and Scotland before coming T12th at The Open. After three wins last season he hasn’t won yet but could do well this week with his Ryder Cup place not yet certain.

Rest of Europe: Thomas Pieters – The defending champion came fourth in the Olympics despite a third round of 77. He can’t make the Ryder Cup team on merit but a win here and another good showing at the Made in Denmark next week would at least boost his hopes for a wildcard pick.

Asia: Hideki Matsuyama – Matsuyama came T4th at the USPGA so comes here in very decent form.
