For the first time this season, the most-picked fantasy player led the field in scoring for PGA TOUR Fantasy Golf driven by Avis.
Jordan Spieth, selected by 68 percent of competitors, was one of three players to score 333 points at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. His co-leaders Pat Perez (4.3 percent) and Jason Bohn (0.8 percent) paid huge dividends for those who tabbed them for their lineups before play got under way on Thursday.
The 333-point total is the lowest leading score in the game's short three-week history. Sergio Garcia led all scorers at THE PLAYERS with 392 points while Rory McIlroy had a whopping 406 points en route to his second Wells Fargo Championship victory. Garcia was the fourth-most picked player at TPC Sawgrass while McIlroy was No. 3 at Quail Hollow.
The previous two top picks -- Spieth at THE PLAYERS and J.B. Holmes at the Wells Fargo -- missed the cut in their respective events.
In the PGA TOUR Experts league, McIlroy United remained atop the standings but it was YugsNugs who had the best week with 1,298 points.
