As almost all of the top golfers on the PGA Tour will be preoccupied playing in the British Open this week, some of the lower-tier players will be teeing it up at the Barbasol Championship.

With that in mind, let's take a look at some golfers to watch out for when building your fantasy lineup for this weekend.

Jhonattan Vegas
Jhonattan Vegas had a really solid start to the John Deere Classic last week, holding part of the 54-hole lead. He's a long hitter who ranks 14th on tour in driving distance and 31st in eagles-per-hole. He's also had three top-10 finishes at some of this year's top events in THE PLAYERS Championship (T-3), the Wells Fargo Championship (T-8) and The Waste Management Open (T-10).

Brian Gay
Brian Gay played great here last year on his way to a sixth-place finish, where he led the field in putting. So far in 2019, Gay has five top-25 finishes and two top-10 finishes, which includes a T-3 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Additionally, Gay ranks ninth on tour in driving accuracy percentage.

Troy Merritt
Troy Merritt is the defending champion of this event and pretty much went wire-to-wire on his way to the win last year. He never relinquished the lead, but was tied at points in the 2018 tournament. Merritt ranks 28th on tour in greens in regulation (GIR) and 22nd in birdie average. At a course he clearly knows how to win on, and coming off a T-7 finish at the 3M Open, Merritt could find himself atop the leaderboard once again this Sunday.
