Fantasy Golf Expert Picks | Masters Winners: Tiger and Phil Will Battle It Out for the Green Jacket

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson

Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson have won 7 of the past 14 Green Jackets.

This week in our Fantasy Golf Expert Picks, we’ll be focusing on The Masters. It’s finally here again, the most prestigious tournament in golf. Phil Mickelson looks to retain the Green Jacket while Tiger and the boys are chomping at the bit to take it as their own. With that, lets take a look at this weeks Fantasy Golf Expert Picks.

How it works: Our experts from will select the players they think fill the criteria in each category this week in fantasy golf for the Transitions Championship. By using a draft process, no two picks can be the same. The experts will alternate picks weekly. The three categories are broken down into three separate posts:

1) Sleepers: Players flying under the radar we think have a shot to win the tournament.

2) Busts: Some of the bigger names who will fall flat.

3) Winners: The big boys. These are the players we’re picking to be hoisting the trophy come Sunday.

Fantasy Golf Expert Picks: WGC-Cadillac Championship “Winners”

ExpertPick OrderPlayer Selected
Ethan Norof1Tiger Woods: This is the week Tiger finally gets it going again. He'll be wearing the Green Jacket on Sunday.
Justin Burniske2Phil Mickelson: He won the Shell Houston Open by shooting 18 birdies over his final two rounds, similar to last year at the Masters when he shot nine birdies and two eagles over his final two rounds. It appears Phil is heating up at just the right time again. Plus, he’s finished outside the top 10 at the Masters only once since 1999.
Zac Fluewelling3Nick Watney: I am going with Watney as the winner and recipient of this years Green Jacket (as well as the rest of the perks that go along with being the Master Champion). Watney has made the cut in each of his six events and has finished in the top 10 in five of the six.
Chris Dietrich4Dustin Johnson: 310 yard avg off the tee and 2nd ranking in total birdies is a good combo to have at this golf course. Look for DJ to finally step into the Major Champion's winner circle.
Jon Ross5Bubba WatsonBubba Watson: Playing as well as anyone on tour, Bubba hits it a mile and is 2nd in Greens In Regulation. He could be poised for a run at the Green Jacket come Sunday.
