The WGC-Mexico Championship ended with an exciting Sunday afternoon, and Patrick Reed walked away with a win. As we head into the Honda Classic and its solid field of players, let's examine some golfers to keep an eye on when putting together your fantasy team this week.

Fantasy Golf Picks for the 2020 Honda Classic

Brooks Koepka
Brooks Koepka often plays his best golf when it matters most (the majors), and he has yet to grab even a top-10 finish this season. However, he has had some success at the Honda Classic recently, grabbing a T-2 here last season. Koepka is the favorite to win this week, likely thanks in part to his monstrous driver. If he can have a great week of ball striking, Koepka should find himself contending late into Sunday once again.

Rickie Fowler
Rickie Fowler has had both a strong start to this season and a great track record at this event in recent years. Fowler has two top-10 finishes this season. He won this event in 2017 and also grabbed a T-2 here last season. He hasn't been as long off the tee this season as he has in the past, but he is 41st on the tour in driving accuracy, 19th in birdie average and 14th in holes per eagle. Rickie's great ball striking should carry him here, even if his driver isn't as long as he'd hope.

Viktor Hovland
Viktor Hovland should be riding high coming into this event after grabbing the win last week in the Puerto Rico Open. He also had another top-10 finish in A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Being 32nd on tour in green-in-regulation percentage should help Hovland here, along with his fourth-ranked holes-per-eagle average. If he can ride the momentum from last week, Hovland could turn into a great value play.
