Fantasy Golf Picks 2014: Northern Trust Open

This year, all eyes will be on the red-hot Jimmy Walker as the boys return to Riviera Country Club. The 2014 Northern Trust Open will be another spectacle primed for a Bubba Watson blow-up, similar to what he had at the Waste Management Phoenix Open a couple weeks ago. He seems to play just well enough to put him at the top of the leaderboard before crapping down his leg. For his sake, let's hope that won't be the case this week.

As mentioned, Jimmy Walker needs to be on your fantasy golf roster. I'm not sure how long he'll maintain this hotstreak, but three victories in the 2013-14 season is something we haven't seen since Tiger. Don't expect to keep this guy on the shelf until the majors; Walker will clean up in the regular season events.
