No surprise here. Rory McIlroy, the FedExCup leader who has won his past three PGA TOUR starts, was the most-picked player among participants in PGATOUR.COM's fantasy game. McIlroy arrived at The Barclays after winning two majors, The Open Championship and PGA Championship, and the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
More than half of fantasy participants picked McIlroy. The strong field at the first event of the FedExCup Playoffs gave fantasy gamers plenty of options, which is why McIlroy was the only player selected by more than 30 percent of teams. Rickie Fowler and Sergio Garcia, who tied for second behind McIlroy at The Open Championship, were selected by 28 percent of teams. You can play
