Here are the fantasy golf picks for game week 12 where it's the Quicken Loans National at Congressional and the BMW International Open in Germany
Fantasy Golf Picks: Garcia Headlines in Germany
Have we recovered from last week? What a US Open that was, where Dustin Johnson sealed his first major triumph.
This week the PGA Tour is back at Congressional for the Quicken Loans National where Troy Merritt defends.
The course is 7,569 yards long so it should suit the longer hitters, Patrick Reed, Marc Leishman and Charley Hoffman are fancied to do well.
On the European Tour it’s a big week at the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Lärchenhof in Pulheim between Cologne and Dusseldorf.
Last year, Pablo Larrazabal won his fourth European Tour event with a closing total of 17-under-par.
Despite not being the highest ranked in the field, Sergio Garcia is bookies favourite after his T5th finish at the US Open last week.
Each week the GM tipster posts his betting tips so look out for them.

Fantasy picks for game week 12:
USA 1: Jim Furyk – Furyk looks to have fully recovered from his wrist problems now after a brilliant final day 66 at the US Open to finish in T2nd. I fancy him to do well this week.
USA 2: Justin Thomas – One of the PGA Tour’s upcoming players. He finished T4th here last year and had a good week at Oakmont, finishing T32nd.
GB: Chris Wood – The Bristolian, along with Andy Sullivan, finished as highest Englishman at Oakmont in T23rd place. He won the BMW PGA Championship last month and praised his ball-striking last week where he just couldn’t quite hole enough putts. His game is clearly still firing.
Scandinavia: Henrik Stenson – The powerful Swede withdrew from the US Open last week after a first round 69 but he must be feeling better now if he’s in the field here in Germany. A 69 round Oakmont shows his game is good. He lost in a play-off at the BMW International Open back in 2014 and finished in the top 10 in 2013 and 2011.
Rest of Europe: Sergio Garcia – The Spaniard came so close to winning his first major last week at the US Open but came away from it feeling positive. If anything, he learnt that he’s still right there with the world’s best. He’s got form in this tournament as well, he was T7th in 2013, T6th in 2012 and 2nd in 2011 after losing in a play-off to compatriot Pablo Larrazabal.
Asia: Byeong Hun An – Last year’s European Tour Rookie of the Year has been playing in America this year and does so again this week. His last two events across the pond have been a T11th finish at the Memorial and T23rd last week at Oakmont. He also lost in a play-off to Brian Stuard at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in May.
Africa: Jaco Van Zyl – Jaco missed the cut at the US Open but did finish T7th at Wentworth last month. He also has six top-18 finishes this season.
Australasia: Marc Leishman – The big-hitting Aussie finished T18th at Oakmont and ended at 6-over for the week which included a 7-over-par 77 in the third round, his game can’t be too far away. Another pick for Australia could be Scott Hend who won again in Asia last week at the Queen’s Cup in Thailand, albeit against a weak field, for his ninth Asian Tour title.
South America: Fabrizio Zannotti – The Paraguayan won the BMW International Open in 2014 on this course so could be worth a pick this week. His best finishes on tour this season have been a T7th at Wentworth last month and T9th in the Volvo China Open.
