Barbasol Championship Fantasy Preview

With the big guns heading overseas for The Open, there is a small field remaining stateside, ready to take on Grand National’s Lake Course in Opelika, Alabama.

With One-and-Done likely being the only fantasy format active for this event, I’m going to keep this really quick and use a different format than most previews.

First, I will use historical stats since 2014 to determine who has the best chances to make the cut, best chances to pick up a top 20, and best chances to secure a top 5. Then I will add a list for current form and one list for course history. At the end we will get a quick view of who is checking the most boxes.
