During the first round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge on the European Tour, Siem made an eagle thanks to one of the most fortuitous bounces you’ll ever see on a golf course.

Chances are, most will consider wedging back out to the fairway, but proceed to try to hit a high draw through that tiny opening in the trees. At least, that's how I land so many double-bogeys on my card. In fantasy golf, the same concept exists. Take Matt Kuchar this week, for instance. He's almost...

Certainly, the 2010 Open Champion knows that and expects some mistakes when it comes to his name … but not this mistake...
