We're a little tardy publishing our 2015 Fantasy Golf picks, but better late than never, right? The 2015 Farmers Insurance Open tees off this week and The Big Cat's opening odds are listed at 50-to-1. Yep, you read that correctly; Tiger Woods is damn-near a longshot to win at Torrey Pines, where he has won eight times prior to this year. But how can you blame the sleazy mafia bosses that set the odds in Vegas? Tiger turned the Waste Management Phoenix Open into a twilight hit-and-giggle last week, missing the cut in monumental fashion. The man can't even hit a chip shot to save his tooth, let alone put himself into contention.
So who do we like for this week's tournament. Take a look:
Don't let the fact that you can't recognize many of those names fool you. Brooks Koepka won last week and is apparently the Great White Hype among my fellow swarmy Twitter goofballs.
My favorite part about Koepka winning the Waste Management is that he's also going to win the Farmers this week. pic.twitter.com/5IGgmU8Rs7

See? It's like this guy walks on water, which wouldn't be surprising to me in the least. His name is "Brooks" after all.
Hideki Matsuyama might be the biggest sleeper of 2015, and by judging by his recent play (two top-3's in three events) my after-the-fact predictability talents are as honed as ever. His shot during last week's tournament is already a contender for Shot of the Year, supported mainly by a fictitious email I received from Mama Matsuyama.
Truth be told, expect big things from Keegan Bradley this week. The die-hard New England Patriots fan is sure to be riding the coattails of his team's success in Super Bowl XLIX, because fantasy sports are weird and that's just how it works. I'm predicting a Top-5 finish for that googly-headed monster.
