Expert Picks for Arnold Palmer Invitational
Pampling has made Bay Hill a track of obsession over recent campaigns and he has filed more than a few rounds below 70 along the way. He haven't seen much to suggest he is ready for a surge, but this course has been a friend.
Jeff Overton [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #190
When you mention that the ability to go long can produce noteworthy opportunity, you have to feel good when you see Overton in the field. He is all about going long and he has, on occasion, flashed the iron play to back it up.
Brendon de Jonge [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #87
It has been a running theme to put de Jonge near the bottom of our top 30 only to see him produce numbers worthy of more respect. He nearly joined the fight for a win at Innisbrook last week and his momentum could be too great to ignore this week.
Matteo Manassero [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #158
Manassero has become the talk of the golf word with more than a few suggesting he is set to join the ranks of the game's elite before he reaches 20-years of age. His game is amazing and this course appears to be perfectly tailored for his style of play.
Jason Dufner [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #36
Dufner is a course-specific suggestion who has consistently served fantasy owners well in working the lower tiers of their leagues at Bay Hill over recent campaigns. He may be playing the best golf his career right now.
Sergio Garcia [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #6
If you want to believe your eyes, you may find Garcia is on the rise after a much-needed break from the game. He is a dangerous proposal based on recent history, but talent and ability are not in question. Sergio may be back on the prowl.
