Comments: Expert Picks for Zurich Classic of New Orleans

The coming week brings us one week closer to the second major of the season, but more importantly, it brings us a new week of golf entertainment at one of the most underrated courses on the PGA Tour. The TPC Louisiana has become the home of professional golf when the Tour swings through the bayou, a venue offering typical challenges associated with TPC links while showcasing the unique charm and tradition of this community. The visual stimulation of golf in the swamp, in today's age of HDTV and digital coverage from both the Golf Channel and CBS, can be as rewarding as the any we typically see from more popular venues and this week's field is as rich as any in recent history. Several of the international talents have extended their stay to swing on the links of the TPC, giving fantasy owners a prime opportunity to emphasize momentum over history. The usual suspects among the Americans will be on hand and battling as well, providing options and debates for those who turn their rosters towards historic performance. If you prefer the analytical side of evaluation you can look at this year's sand save numbers, look at the astounding challenges provided by sand traps on this course, and put a small lean towards those who have proven capable of overcoming those conditions. Whatever you choose as your strategy of choice, your fantasy imagination has a justified candidate or two to quench the thirst for enthusiasm for this week's tourney. You'll find that same manic tone in our rankings for the week. We've got golfers from all motivations listed below and they are all capable of meeting, and possibly exceeding, your hopes and desires. If we choose to lean in one direction it might be a mix of the three, noting the course has a limited list of ties to certain golfers but also noting the final leaderboards have been extremely volatile and vulnerable over recent seasons. The Zurich Classic may be one of the most challenging fantasy endeavors of your non-major season and it is sure to be one of the most entertaining.
