WGC Match Play Championship: DJ's Tough to Beat
WGC Match Play Championship: DJ's Tough to Beat

This article is part of our Weekly Preview series.

The PGA Tour finally breaks free from the grips of the Sunshine state and heads west to Texas as we get ready for the first major of the year. Before we get ahead of ourselves though, we've got what some might say, is the most exciting Wednesday all year on the PGA Tour. Well, everyone outside of those playing in pro-am practice rounds would say that. Anyhow, this week is quite the anomaly on the PGA Tour as there is a lot of excitement early in the week, but as the field thins, the excitement level generally wains unless the big names advance. They've made tweaks to the format to address this, but nothing has really worked. In fact, ditching the one-and-done nature of the first three days seems to have had a negative impact as several match-ups on Friday are now meaningless, but I digress. For fantasy purposes, you want to be careful this week as elite players are just as likely as anyone else to get eliminated early, so you'll want to aim for the middle ground when selecting your one-and-done golfer this week.
