It is extremely difficult to predict the performance of a golfer every week. A lot of different factors come into play.
I am in a fantasy golf pool, and I won’t share all of my secrets, but a major factor that comes into play in determining certain golfers is consistency on the weekend. The missed cut category has great significance.
I know Abbotsford, British Columbia’s Adam Hadwin has only played in two PGA events in 2011, the RBC Canadian Open at the Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club in Vancouver last week, and the United States Open at Congressional Country Club outside of Washington, D.C. last month. But the bottom line is that he has played all 72 holes in the two tournaments he has been in this year, and performed admirably in a tie for 58th in D.C. and a tie for for fourth in B.C. Both results made Hadwin the top Canadian.
I’m taking a hunch and selecting him this week along with Americans Phil Mickelson, Webb Simpson and Jeff Overton.
