With the new PGA Tour season well underway now, we head to Bermuda for the Butterfield Bermuda Championship. While it's not the most elite field, it still has some of the world's top player competing.

Let's take a look at some golfers to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.

Butterfield Bermuda Championship Fantasy

Matthew Fitzpatrick:
Matthew Fitzpatrick has never won on the PGA Tour, but he did come close with five top-10 finishes last season. He hasn't played in any PGA Tour events this season, but is coming off a win a couple weeks ago on the European Tour. If he can carry that over to this event, Fitzpatrick should be dangerous, and it's a big reason why he's the early favorite. He ranked No. 17 on Tour last season in driving accuracy, and on a shorter course (by PGA standards) like Port Royal, this could prove paramount. It earned him a No. 15 ranking in Strokes Gained (SG): Off-The-Tee last season and his putting was really solid as well, ranking No. 38 in SG: Putting and No. 47 in SG: Tee-To-Green last season.

Danny Willett:
Danny Willett has competed and won among the most elite fields, this week he gets the luxury of being one of the more elite players in the field. He placed T-55 in his lone appearance on this course before last season, but that experience should prove valuable in a field where not a lot of people have it. In his last PGA Tour start he grabbed a solid T-21. Already this season he ranks No. 5 on tour in SG: Around-The-Green and No. 26 in SG: Tee-To-Green.

Seamus Power:
Seamus Power is one of the players in this field with experience on this course, finishing No. 37 and No. 31 in this event the last two years, respectively. That's more than the other two players on this list can say. Like Willett, Power finished T-21 at the Shriners Children's Open a few weeks back in his last event. After missing the cut in his opening event, his game seems to be on the rise and now comes to a place where he probably has more knowledge or comfort than most of the field. And like Fitzpatrick, driving accuracy is a strength for Power, ranking No. 17 on tour there. Add in a No. 19 ranking in Green in Regulation on a short course and Power could be playing for a trophy come Sunday.
