The Fantasy Golf season kicked off last weekend, with Jimmy Walker taking the first tournament of the season. This weekend, I’m getting going with some Fantasy Golf Picks for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin. Draft Street has a pretty solid Fantasy Golf tournament each week, which rewards birdies and pars, penalizes bogeys, while also rewarding points based on where you finish in the tournament. Use these Fantasy Golf Picks for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at Draft Street by signing up here. Fantasy Golf Picks for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open Nick Watney, 28,565: The tournament is in Las Vegas, Watney is from Las Vegas and he has 3 top 10s at the tournament. That stands for good reason to fork out big dollars to get him in your lineup. Better yet, Watney came on strong in the Fed-Ex Playoffs and is just entering his prime at 32. Ryan Moore, 23,850: Another Las Vegas connection here, as Ryan Moore went to UNLV and now resides in Sin City. Additionally, the Runnin’ Rebel is the defending champion after posting a 24 under, 260. Moore will look to bounce-back, after a disappointing season last year with the putter, expect more putts to drop this weekend.

Knox lead the PGA in Driving Accuracy in 2013 and went good for 8th in Greens in Regulation, so the opportunities for birdies are going to be there. All Knox needs is a few to drop and he’ll have a solid weekend. Morgan Hoffman, $12,794: The kid can post birdies in a hurry and took advantage of the par 4s specifically, as good as anyone last year. He finished the season strong in 2013 and finished 46th last week. As long as he is making cuts, Hoffman has a chance to putt his way into the top ten weekly. Seung-yul Noh, $12,539: The South Korean product didn’t register the birdies and eagles in 2013, or last week, like he did in 2012, which hindered his ascend to stardom. The talent is there after missing only 4 cuts in 2012. Look for Noh to turn his game around this weekend with a solid showing. Michael Putnam, $8,062: The Web.com earnings leader from 2013 has fully exempt status for this season’s PGA schedule. Putnam is long off the tee and hits a lot of Greens in Regulation, which sets him up to post a lot of circles on the scorecard. A final round 74 hurt was a disappointment in an otherwise respectable first outing last week.   Get Signed up to Draft Street and use these Fantasy Golf Picks for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.
