Zach Johnson took home maximum points in Fantasy Golf this week.
Zach Johnson wasn’t the only one saying a prayer after his victory at the Open on Sunday. So were some of you.
The American’s impressive play-off win handed earned 607 points in Fantasy Golf this week.
Our suspicions are that you’ll feel a lot better about Louis Oosthuizen and Marc Leishman’s reuslts than they will. While they lost in the most sickening way imaginable, both scored 517 points.
Before we continue, here’s your Fantasy code for this week: H1dekiMatsuyama.
This is valid until 23:59 on Wednesday evening.
The year’s third major proved rewarding whether you backed the favourites or outsiders.
Oosthuizen, Jordan Spieth and Jason Day all finished predictably high. However, there were big points for selecting Jordan Niebrugge and Anthony Wall.
Justin Rose also would have proved a sensible addition, along with the likes of Sergio Garcia and Adam Scott.
On the outside chance you backed Scott Piercy as one of your two Americans, well done! He took all 405 points from the Barbasol.
Boo Weekley was another outsider American who would have earned you a decent points haul, with 255 in your back pockets after his performance at the weekend.
Boddington is sat at the top of the standings on 19, 429 points. The inclusion of Day, Oosthuizen, Garcia and Danny Willett proved decisive.
Montys Majors has 18,889 points and sits in second place.
Who’s hot and who’s not
Henrik Stenson, Adam Scott and Shane Lowry were all popular transfers last week.
Amusingly, Zach Johnson was one of the most transferred players, alongside the injured Rory McIlroy and Rafa Cabrera-Bello.
