After an interesting week at the Corales Punta Cana Championship last week that saw Hudson Swafford claim his second career Tour victory, we turn our attention tothe Sanderson Farms Championship. With many of golf's biggest names preparing for next week's Zozo Championship, we are once again looking at a lighter field in this one.
With that in mind, let's take a look at some guys to consider when putting together your fantasy team.
Scottie Scheffler has seven top-10 finishes on the season and he comes into this event on one heck of a run. In his last five events, Scheffler has five top-20 finishes and three top-5 finishes. He ranks top-10 on tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Off-The-Tee and SG: Tee-To-Green. He is also No. 15 in SG: Total. In a weaker field, this level of play should equate to another high finish.
Doc Redmond made the cut here last year, but it wasn't an inspiring performance. However, his play this season might lead to a different outcome this year. He ranks No. 2 in SG: Approach The Green, No. 10 in SG: Total and No. 21 in SG: Tee-To-Green. His No. 8 driving accuracy percentage and No. 4 rank in birdie average are also good signs.
Sebastian Munoz is the defending champion here, so in a weaker field, he has to be seriously considered. While his numbers over the last year aren't too encouraging, he has played really well as of late. In his three appearances prior to his T-59 at the U.S. Open he finished T-8, T-8 and T-18. When you combine his success here and his recent form, he makes for an intriguing pick to be atop the leaderboard again in 2020.
