Fantasy Mailbag: Wyndham

By Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM Fantasy Columnist The moral of this week is to treat it like any other. The more you introduce new thoughts related to the Wyndham Championship serving as the finale to the Regular Season and other similar angles as it relates to the 11th hour in a fantasy game, you press. Meanwhile, below are a couple of submissions into a light Mailbag. Hey Rob. I noticed Nicolas Colsaerts wasn’t mentioned in your fantasy preview, yet he’s suspiciously in the field for the Wyndham. Not sure why as I don’t think he has his TOUR card. Is he on your radar this week, or is his recent poor play scare you away? If you had to choose: Blake Adams or Colsaerts? -- Lorne Colsaerts was granted a foreign exemption into the Wyndham. The European Tour -- his home circuit -- is dark in advance of next week's Johnny Walker Championship at Gleneagles. The Belgian is knocking on the door for a Ryder Cup berth, so he could earn valuable Official World Golf Ranking points at Sedgefield. However, I have, indeed, been disappointed in his performance in the U.S. He closed out the British Open with a 65 but his only other top 25 in seven PGA TOUR starts this year is a T25 at the Memorial. I can't help but admire the kind of schedule Adams maintains given his beaten-up body. Yet, he's posted a career-high seven top 25s, including a pair of top 10s. And he's coming off a T7 at Kiawah Island, his best finish of the year. The third-year TOUR member also offers splits that match up well with Sedgefield. He's the safer -- and smarter -- investment this week. I like your Power Rankings this week. I already had most of them on my Yahoo! team, but I have a few alternate thoughts and would appreciate a look at them: Sergio Garcia (Group A); John Rollins (Group B) and Daniel Summerhays (Group C). -- Jim I'm fading Garcia this week. You can read more on why in my fantasy preview. This field is really deep with rank-and-filers, so I’m not sure Rollins stands out. Moreover, he continues to be all or nothing. The best advice I could provide would be relative; that is, it depends who else is on the same short. I really like Summerhays. He’s quickly rising on the list of best young non-winners on the PGA TOUR. He's logged four top 10s this year, and on a variety of ballparks. I’d endorse him in the right situation this week. For example, I’d rank him above both Garcia and Rollins outside of Yahoo!, but there's no chance anyone cracks the top two of Carl Pettersson and Jason Dufner in Group C.
