Fantasy Golf Picks This Week for The American Express 2021
The PGA Tour is heading out to La Quinta, California this week for The American Express. With a decent field this week, it could be anyone's trophy to grab when the event kicks off this Thursday.
With that in mind, let's take a look at three golfers to consider when putting together your fantasy team.
PGA Fantasy Picks This Week
Tony Finau has had a solid start to the season. In his seven events this season, his worst finish was T-38, but he also has four top-11 finishes, including a top-5 finish two events ago. Being one of the bigger, more talented names in this field, Finau could seize the opportunity as the PGA Tour comes back to the continental United States. Finau played well here last year finishing 17-under par, good enough for a solo 14th finish.
Patrick Cantlay has been impressive in his last five starts, grabbing four top-18 finishes, which includes two top-10 finishes and a win at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. In his last event on this course, Cantlay finished with a solo 9th. Ranking No. 24 in SG (Strokes Gained): Total this season, Cantlay comes into this event as the favorite, and he could very well live up to that billing come Sunday.
Sungjae Im has had a great start to his career and this season. Although he performed under his expectations last week at the Sony Open, this field could provide a better chance for the ultra-consistent player. In his last four events, he's finished T-2, CUT, T-5, T-56, respectively. If that trend continues then Im is on his way to another top-5 finish this week. He has played this course twice before and finished 10th and 12th.
