Pebble Beach, Ca – Time for our 2016 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am picks, as the PGA Tour returns to one of the World’s greatest Golf Courses.

Defending champion Brandt Snedeker, one of the hottest players on tour this season, will be looking for his 3rd victory in four years in this event.

Pebble Beach has also attracted six of the top nine players in the world, including the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking, Jordan Spieth. Other top ranked players include third-ranked Jason Day,  Bubba Watson (6th), Justin Rose (7th), Patrick Reed (9th) and Dustin Johnson (8th).  Johnson will also be looking for his third AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am title, after wins in 2009 and 2010.

Other past champions in the field include Jimmy Walker (2014), three-time winner Phil Mickelson (2012, 2005 and 1998), D.A. Points (2011), Vijay Singh (2004) and Davis Love III (2001 and 2003).

South Africa’s Branden Grace is still number one in the Razzball Fantasy Golf Rankings, February 9, 2016 edition. But a couple of rising stars, on either side of the Atlantic, are closing in on the leader.

American Rickie Fowler, who lost in a playoff at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, moves up two places to number two, 146 points behind Grace. On the European Tour, England’s Danny Willett won at the Dubai Desert Classic, moved to #13 in the Official World Golf Ranking, and jumped from #17 to fourth in the weekly rankings.

Brandt Snedeker, who drops from second to third after a disappointing T33 at Phoenix, and Dubai runner-up Rafael Cabrera-Bello, who moved 15 to fifth,  complete the top five. The Dubai finish was the Spaniard’s second consecutive second-place check after a similar finish in Qatar.

Here’s a few things we noticed as we present our weekly Razzball Moving Day Fantasy Golf Report, February 6, 2016 edition.

Rickie Looking for 2nd win of 2016

After a win in Abu Dhabi, and a disappointing jet-lagged induced missed cut at San Diego, Rickie Fowler is back in contention. After opening with rounds of 65 and 68, Fowler looks poised for another victory this week at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The fourth ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking sits one shot back of 36-hole leader and fellow American James Hahn, who sits at -10 through two rounds.

Fowler has left no doubt that his goal this year is to turn the big three of Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy into a Big Four, and based on early results he just might have a chance to do it.

With Spieth running around the world getting rich, McIlroy getting everything he can out of life and Day seemingly in the midst of a career-year hangover, Fowler might be the best player in the world right now.

Of course, it will all come down to how he performs in the four majors.

Scottsdale, Arizona – It’s time for our 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open picks and there’s no shortage of story lines as the PGA Tour returns to the Arizona desert.

On top of the agenda is whether Brandt Snedeker, last week’s winner in San Diego at the Farmers Insurance Open, can keep rolling.  That roll has seen him finish in the Top 3 in all three events he’s played in 2016.  The Nashville native has moved up 37 spots in the Official World Golf Ranking to #12 since the start of the year, and sits second in the Fantasy Golf Rankings.

Another story line will be trying to figure out which Rickie Fowler will show up in Scottsdale this week. Will it be the player who delivered a statement victory in Abu Dhabi against a strong field?  Or will it be the guy who failed to make the cut last week in San Diego.  Let’s give young Rickie the benefit of the doubt, and write off his poor performance last week to a combination of celebration and jet lag.  We predict he will be better this week.

With a strong field that includes 10 of the Top 25 players in the World, led by the fourth ranked Bubba Watson, and defending champion Brooks Koepka, we’re expecting another exciting event. So without further adieu, here is our 2016 Waste Management Phoenix Open Picks.

There’s a new name on top, in the weekly Fantasy Golf Rankings, February 2, 2016 edition.

South African Branden Grace, fresh off defending his title at the European Tour’s Commercial Bank Qatar Masters on Saturday, has reached the top, knocking last week’s leader Jordan Spieth down to #3.

Grace is up to #11 in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) after an impressive stretch of golf that includes six straight Top 10 finishes. It was the 27-year old Pretoria native’s first win since last year’s Qatar Masters.

The weekend’s other big winner, American Brandt Snedeker, moves up to second in the weekly rankings, jumping 12 spots from #14. The 2012 Fed Ex Cup champion won the Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego on Monday for his 8th PGA tour win. It was the 35-year old’s third top three finish of 2016 after his 2nd place showing at the Sony Open and a third-place effort at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

Spieth is still number one in the OWGR, and wasn’t exactly idle on the weekend, placing second in the Singapore Open, a non-ranking event co-sponsored by the Japanese and Asian Tours.

It’s another golf Saturday and time again for the Moving Day Fantasy Golf Report, Saturday, January 30, 2016 edition.

Here are the big stories from the world of fantasy golf that we noticed heading into championship weekend.

Dustin in Contention in San Diego

American Gary Woodland and Korea’s K.J. Choi are leading the Farmer’s Insurance Open at -9 after 36 holes, but the player generating the excitement is the eighth ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking, Dustin Johnson.

Johnson sits one shot back of the leading duo after a six-under par 66 on Friday. The 31-year old hasn’t won since last March at the World Golf Championships Cadillac Championship and is probably due for a win.  A victory this weekend would give him 10 career PGA Tour titles.

San Diego, Ca – The PGA Tour returns to historic Torrey Pines this week for the 2016 Farmers Insurance Open.

Seven-time champion Tiger Woods is not in the field this year, due to his well documented back troubles, but a suddenly in form three time champion is one of the 156 players who will tee it up on Thursday.  Of course, we are speaking of Phil Mickelson who may well be a contender this week, after a strong showing at last week’s Career Builder Challenge.

Other notable players in the field include the second ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking, and the tournament’s defending champion, Jason Day, and world #4 Rickie Fowler, fresh of a win in Abu Dhabi last week.

American Jordan Spieth didn’t win in Abu Dhabi, but his tie for fifth was enough to vault him back to the top of Razzball’s Fantasy Golf Rankings, January 25, 2016 edition.

The number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking has a narrow 22 point lead over South Africa’s Branden Grace, who matched Spieth’s 5th place finish in the first leg of the European Tour’s desert swing.

Last week’s leader, Patrick Reed dropped to #3 after a disappointing 56th place finish at the PGA Tour stop in La Quinta, California. The placing snapped a string of seven consecutive Top 10 finishes for the young American.

Fowler, McIlroy Move Up

Abu Dhabi winner Rickie Fowler jumped from 25th to 4th in the weekly rankings, after recording his fourth win since May. Former number one, Rory McIlroy, completes the Top 5, moving up a spot after a strong 3rd place finish in the same event.

Sunday Fantasy Golf Update, January 24, 2016

With another championship Sunday upon us, it’s time for our weekly Sunday Fantasy Golf Update, January 24, 2016 edition.

Fowler Wins Sunday Shootout in Abu Dhabi

All the pre-tournament hype was about the showdown between the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR), Jordan Spieth and #3 Rory McIlroy. But it was the world’s sixth ranked player who stole the show on Sunday at Abu Dhabi.

American Rickie Fowler shot a final round 69 to emerge on top of a crowded leaderboard and win the European Tour’s Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship. He finished one shot ahead of Germany’s Thomas Pieters. Pieters, himself coming off a break-out season that saw him win twice on the European Tour in 2015, shot a final round 67.

It was Fowler’s first win of the 2015-2016 season after three victories in 2015, and will once again start the discussion of expanding the so-called “Big Three” to a Big Four at the top of the world of golf. To add fuel to the fire, the win moved the Murrieta, California native to 4th in the OWGR, setting up a season long battle between the four twenty-somethings.

Despite a relaxing week away from the course, American Patrick Reed remains number one in our weekly Fantasy Golf Rankings January 18, 2016 edition.

The 25-year old has 2,388 points, 325 more than second-place Brenden Grace of South Africa.  Jordan Spieth, the number one player in the Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR), drops a spot to #3.

American Kevin Kisner and South African Charl Schwartzel complete the Top 5.

Gomez, Snedeker Make Big Moves

The top two finishers in the Sony Open in Hawaii made big jumps in the weekly rankings.  Tournament champion Fabian Gomez of Argentina exploded from 75 to number eight. Tournament runner-up Brandt Snedeker moved up to #11 from #46 last week, after recording a second consecutive top three finish in Honolulu.
