The new PGA Tour season continues this week with The CJ Cup at Summit in Las Vegas, NV.
Let's take a look at some golfers to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.
The CJ Cup at Summit Fantasy
This will be Dustin Johnson's first event this season, but he finished the 2021 on a strong note, grabbing three top-10 finishes in his last four starts, and four in his last six. Johnson has plenty of experience winning in elite fields like this one, grabbing top-10 finishes in four of his last five starts at majors. Look for hi to continue his great play to end last season here and be right near or at the top of the leaderboard.
Despite never winning a tournament in the U.S. Louis Oosthuizen remains one of the best players on the PGA Tour, and he proved that for much of last season with an insane run. He finished in the top-20 in nine of his last 10 starts to end last season, and grabbed a top-5 finish in five of those 10 starts. He kicked of the new season last week with a solid T-14 finish at the Shriners Children's Open. With his game seemingly still in great form, Ossthuizen should be in contention here again this week.
Marc Leishman represents a more value play here, but at his price you're getting a guy coming in player some really incredible golf. He's played in two tournament's so far this season, and he finished t-3 and t-4 respectively. His putting has been the main catalyst there, ranking No. 2 on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Putting. He also ranks No. 1 on tour in birdie average and top-25 in Greens in Regulation (GIR), which shows in his No. 19 ranking in SG: Approach The Green.
