Troy Merritt won the Quicken Loans National and maximum points in Fantasy Golf.

With only one event counting towards Fantasy Golf this week, there was extra incentive to pick wisely at the Quicken Loans National.

If you picked outsider Troy Merritt, you deserve a points boost….but it doesn’t work like that sadly!

The American won his first PGA Tour title by three shots ahead of in-form Rickie Fowler.

David Lingmerth and Carl Pettersson finished in the top four to give Swedish fans something to holler about, with Justin Rose the highest placed Brit in the field.
