Fantasy Picks For The FBR Open

By Sean Crogie   Posted at  1/30/2008 09:20:00 PM   No comments

This week the PGA TOUR stops in Scottsdale, Ariz. for the FBR Open. The course the pros will be playing is the TPC Scottsdale (7,216 yards, par 71) and the winner pockets$1.08 million.
The FedEx Cup pointsare as follows: 25,000. Winner's share: 4,500.

Last year: Australia's Aaron Baddeley won the second of his two PGA Tour titles. Baddeley birdied three of the final four holes for his second straight 7-under 64 and a one-stroke victory over John Rollins.

Notes: Phil Mickelson won the 2005 event, shooting a 60 in the second round en route to a five-stroke victory. The former Arizona State star also won in 1996. ... Mark Calcavecchia won in 2001, shooting 65-60-64-67 for a 28-under 256 total - a tour stroke record that was broken by Tommy Armour III in the 2003 Texas Open. Calcavecchia also won in 1989 and 1992. ... Vijay Singh won in 1995 and 2003. ... The AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am is next week, followed by the Northern Trust Open at Riviera.


Here are my picks for this week:
Phil Mickelson- 2 time winner here, former ASU player, loves this event.
Justin Leonard- Every week seems to be there, 5th last week and 4 Top 10's at the FBR.
VJ- has had top 10's here sin 2001, new swin is coming around.
Charles Howell III- tee to green has improved as well as putting could be there come Sunday.
Rory Sabbatini- not a great record here but he sems to always be in the top 10
Jesper Parnevik- Does well in the Desert, missed cut last week he'll do well this week.
Aaron Baddeley- last year's winner so far this year t12th , t13th, MC, he's close.
