He may not have been in a PGA Tour winner’s circle since Obama was starting his first term in office. But Paul Casey is still a deserving number one in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, October 25, 2016 edition.

The Englishmen has recorded four top four finishes in his last five starts and holds on to top spot after a T21 at the CIMB Classic.

Napa, California – The 2016 Safeway Open had the potential to be one of the most watched events on the tour this season.  Now it’s just the opening event of the 2016-2017 PGA Tour Schedule.

All the excitement of course was generated by the expected appearance of Tiger Woods, but that all died early this week when Woods confirmed he wasn’t going to be in the field.

So, for now, the excitement generated by a new season will have to do.

So with the 14-time major winner not in the picture, here’s what you should be looking for this week as the 2016 Safeway Open gets underway at the Silverado Country Club on Thursday.

Despite a disappointing Tour Championship, Dustin Johnson is the runaway winner of Razzball’s 2016 PGA Tour Player of the Year.

The 32-year old native of Columbia, South Carolina won three times this season. In addition to his first major at the U.S. Open, he won the WGC Bridgestone Invitational and the BMW Championship.

DJ finished the season with a total of 1,640 points, 328 more than Australia’s Jason Day, the #1 player in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Day failed to win a major in the 2015-2016 season, but was also a three-time tour winner. The 2015 PGA champion’s victories came at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the WGC-Dell Match Play and at the Players Championship.

It took a while for him to get back, but it should come as no surprise that Rory McIlroy is on top of the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, October 4, 2016 edition.

If you had polled golf experts prior to the start of the 2016-2016 PGA Tour season, many would have chosen the young Northern Irishman to me on top of the rankings at the end of the year. The fact that it took him a little longer than expected is the only shock.

McIlroy continued his late season surge at the Tour Championship, winning for the second time in the PGA Tour playoffs to capture the 2016 FedEx Cup championship, and the $10 million dollar bonus. While that may not take away the disappointment of a frustrating major season completely, I’m sure it helps.

The four-time major champion moves up five places to capture top spot, the second time he’s hit number one in our rankings. He previously ruled the rankings for two weeks in November, 2015.

He holds a surprisingly slim lead over a resurgent Paul Casey, who recorded his third consecutive top five playoff finish in Atlanta. The Englishman moves from 3rd to 2nd in his fourth consecutive week in the Top 10. Casey still hasn’t won on tour since the 2009 Houston Open, but a PGA Tour victory seems close.

2016 Ryder Cup Friday FoursomesChaska, Minnesota – 2016 Ryder Cup Friday Foursomes Predictions for September 30th:

2016 Ryder Cup Friday Foursomes – Match One

Jordan Spieth and Patrick Reed (USA) vs. Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson (Europe)

Based on past Ryder Cup performance, this sets up well for the Europeans. Rose and Stenson are a combined 6-2-2 in Ryder Cup foursomes play, and were 3-0-0 as a team in 2014. The American duo of Spieth and Reed, meanwhile have never won a foursome’s match.

This edge is offset somewhat by form and health issues. Spieth and Reed were both relatively sharp in the PGA Tour playoffs, both reaching the Tour Championship in Atlanta. Neither Rose nor Stenson qualified for the final stage, Rose due to uninspired play and the big Swede due to injury.

Predicted result – Halve

In a week with a built-in break in the FedEx Cup playoffs, it’s not surprising that there was very little movement in the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, September 20, 2016 edition.

American Patrick Reed, one of five players who controls his own FedEx Cup destiny this week in Atlanta, holds at #1 for a fourth consecutive week. The 26-year old remains one of the hottest players on the planet, finish 1st, 5th and 13th in the first three playoff events.

BMW Champion Dustin Johnson, Reed’s American Ryder Cup teammate, remains in the number two position. DJ who has three victories this season that include a major (U.S. Open), a World Golf Championship (Bridgestone) and a Playoff event (BMW) is a major contender for the first annual Razzball PGA Tour Player of the year, which will be announced next week.

England’s Paul Casey, a runner-up in the last two playoff events in Boston and Chicago, is ranked third for a second consecutive week. The 39-year old Cheltenham native will look to snap a seven-year PGA Tour winless streak this week at East Lake.

The only change in this week’s top five sees, Australia’s Adam Scott move up to number four, swapping places with PGA champion Jimmy Walker, who slips to five this week.

It’s getting close at the top of the Razzball.com Fantasy Golf Rankings, September 13, 2016 edition.

American Patrick Reed, who won the first event of the PGA Tour Playoffs at Bethpage Black, remains at number one for a third consecutive week, but several players could catch him with a win at next week’s Tour Championship.

Reed, who consolidated his hold on the top spot with a tie for 13th at the BMW Championship, holds a slim 226 point advantage over BMW champion, Dustin Johnson.

DJ picked up his third win of the season in Chicago and moved a little closer to World #1 Jason Day in the Official World Golf Ranking. The reigning U.S. Open champion improves 10 places this week, after ranking 12th in last week’s rankings.

Also getting a little closer is Paul Casey. The Englishman sits third in our weekly survey, just 330 points behind Reed, after finishing as runner-up for the second consecutive week. The 16th ranked player in the world is still looking for his first win since the 2009 Shell Houston Open. It’s Casey’s first time in the top five, beating his previous best of eighth he reached on a couple of occasions, including last week.

And while many players have all but clinched their spots for the season finale, those on the bubble will have to produce a good performance if they want a shot at the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus.
