I don't ever pick the person who won the week before. Just because they had success on one course doesn't mean they will anywhere else. Look at the last few years' leaderboards....
I have a feeling Vegas will be top 30 but your right, no way he repeats. Also, I'm curious why people are picking camillo. What's he done.

Off topic- I got to watch Jhonattan Vegas at the Cox Classic here in omaha and followed him for 5 holes. Really cool watching him win on tv now.

I hope DJ gets his act together but I have a feeling we won't and as for Tiger i'm not holding my breath that this will be his comeback tournament, he lost my vote after loosing the Chevron Challenge. But I do think that Bill Haas and Ben Crane might have a great at Torrey Pines

Will Dustin Johnson be over his "family issues" and bring it at a course he is known to dominate? And the even bigger question....will Tiger Woods start off 2011 with a win?
Since when has Dustin Johnson dominated this course? He hasn't won this event....now when they go to Pebble Beach in a couple of weeks, he has dominated that event in the last 2 years.

Also, I'm taking Tiger no matter what this week. The last 5 times he's played at Torrey Pines, he's won!!! Yes, all of that was pre-2009, but still, he's got some good mojo at Torrey Pines, he knows how to play well in this tournament.

After winning twice, being in the running at two majors and winning 4.5M last year what exactly about his act does DJ need to get together?

I wouldn't pick Villegas either. 2 MC's and a DQ.....not real impressive. Picked him at first, and thought about it and went with Webb Simpson...who has had two cuts made and two solid weeks

He's gotta win to earn my trust back into my lineup. Or atleast several top 10s. IDK about RoninThornton, but that's my approach...
I'm thinking mid season at the earliest before he gets a top 3, end of summer before a win

I find it AMAZING that the Vegas line has TW at 3-1 !!! You can't ignore those numbers, but I'm guessing it has more to do with weight of betting than reality.

Those are better odds than I would give him. But I'm still going to take him every time he tees it up. Odds are he's making the cut, at least, which is better than what four of my guys did last week.

Now to decide on my other nine.

His personal issues. Whatever was wrong he needs to clear out of his mind. Golf channel says he has so we will see.

Hate to admit it, but I think Tiger has a great chance here this week.Tiger has played very well at Torrey Pines in the last few years. Here's hoping Phil plays well at Torrey Pines and starts off the tour season with a win!

12 or so.
Is it too obvious that I went with Tiger, Phil and DJ? I had to do it.

Haaha same, but he doesn't seem like the kind of guy who loves the spot light.

I didn't pick Phil and I keep going back to take him, but I just have too many that I personally like better. Damn it, I don't want to second guess myself.

I was just reading the Golf Channel power rankings and they have Tiger listed as #1. Do you agree and how many are picking Tiger for your fantasy team? He has won here 7 times! Thats hard to ignore.

Kevin -- I got to pick him on my team. Tiger is no doubt going to finish in the top 10 or better at Torrey Pines.

I can't bet against him not gaining back the #1 spot however I don't agree to him being #1 yet.

Gray, Im thinking the same thing, regardless of the "is he back or not" argument he has done too well to ignore him this week.

I won't be taking R Barnes again for a while after last week. Also am I the only one who took Ben Crane? After seeing his funny videos last week, he moved up in my eyes just because of the fun factor.
