Welcome to the very first Golf Monthly Fantasy Focus, a new weekly blog on to go alongside the Golf Monthly Fantasy League. Take on the tipster each week and win great prizes
Golf Monthly Fantasy Focus – It begins in Augusta
In our first Fantasy Golf Blog we take a look at who could do well this week in the first tournament of the Golf Monthly Fantasy Golf League – The Masters
First up for those new to the game it is really easy to sign up and pick a team.
Firstly go to fantasygolf.golf-monthly.co.uk log in and click on My Team.
There you will see a grass background and 10 transparent golf bags. These represent the 10 categories that you will need to pick a golfer from.
To look at the Masters field go to http://www.masters.com/en_US/players/player_list.html this should help you out, last thing you want to do is pick someone who is not in the field.
The categories are split into 10 different geographical zones, so it is very simple to work out who to pick and not pick.
Each week you only get the chance to make 5 transfers, so the people who can plan ahead may do the best!
USA 1 – Rickie Fowler – flying slightly under the radar this week – had an incredible 2014 at the Majors
USA 2 – Bubba Watson – Defending champion and having a very solid season
GB – Lee Westwood – Always solid round Augusta and his game has been looking sharp.
Ireland – Rory McIlroy – Anyone who doesn’t have Rory must know something we don’t.
Scandinavia – Henrik Stenson – The big-hitting Swede is not a great fan of Augusta but has been striking it as well as anyone recently.
Rest of Europe – Sergio Garcia – A tricky decision, but I have gone for the Spaniard who has had three top 10s here in the past
Asia – Hideki Matsuyama – Five top 10 finishes on the PGA Tour this season gets my vote.
Africa – Ernie Els – A tough choice, changed from Oosthiizen at the last moment due to injury concerns. Els should hold up well in his current for,
Australsia – Adam Scott – Have gone for the 2013 champion over pretender-to-the-crown Jason Day
South America – Angel Cabrera – The horse for this course, a former Champion and runner up… no brainer from this category.
Captain – World Number One Rory McIlroy has the armband this week…. For obvious reasons.
Each week you can win a prize so don’t fret if you miss one week, out, you will still have plenty of chances to win.
There are of course great monthly and overall prizes up for grabs.
