This week, the Fantasy Focus colums looks at the best picks for the PGA Tour's Memorial Tournament and the European Tour's Nordea Masters
Fantasy Focus – Woods returns; Europen Tour Sweden bound
Firstly, here’s this week’s bonus code, which grants you one extra transfer:
Bonus Code – J1mFuryk – this is valid until 23:59 on Wednesday June 6.
With the two events attracting strong fields, we’ve opted for a mix of players from both circuits as the US Open at Chambers Bay draws ever closer.
GM Tips for this week:
USA 1: Matt Kuchar – The consistent American has finished inside the top 15 in his last seven visits to Jack’s place, including a victory in 2013.
USA 2: Kevin Na – I’m prepared to overlook Tiger Woods – a man with a tremendous Memorial record – and Jordan Spieth in favour of Kevin Na, who lost out in a play-off last year and comes into the event of the back of seven consecutive top-20 finishes in strokeplay events.
GB – Justin Rose – It has to be Justin Rose, doesn’t it? He’s a past winner at Muirfield Village (2010), he boasts a brilliant record here and he loves tough golf courses.
Ireland – Michael Hoey – The Ulsterman has missed his last two cuts, but he showed a semblance of form before that and notched a top-20 at the Nordea Masters in 2014.
Scandinavia – Alex Noren – The Swede is a past winner of his home Open and a player enjoying a very consistent season after returning from a wrist injury.
Rest of Europe – Victor Dubuisson – The Frenchman is far too good a player to be languishing for too much longer and should have some positive memories from his play-off loss here last year.
Asia – Thongchai Jaidee – The 45-year-old is the defending champion in Sweden and currently 6th on the Race to Dubai. Enough said.
South Africa – Charl Schwartzel – It’s been a tough year for the 2011 Masters champion, but, as they say, class is permanent and form is temporary.
Australasia – Steven Bowditch – The Aussie is the form player in the category following his victory at last week’s Byron Nelson Championship.
South America – Emiliano Grillo – It’s only a matter of time before the Argentinian gets over the line. No one on the European Tour has been better this season from rounds one to three.
