Phil Mickelson Fantasy Golf Picks: Waste Management Phoenix Open

Fantasy Golf Picks: Waste Management Phoenix Open

Here's what our best Waste Management Phoenix Open 2019 lineup looks like:

Phil Mickelson ($9,300)

Lefty's more at home in the desert than a herd of camels. He's won in Phoenix three times and is the tournament's all-time leading money winner. He was last seen opening with a 60 on his way to a T2 at the Desert Classic. Plus, there's the fact that the year's biggest galleries will make Phil the object of their affections.

Matt Kuchar ($9,200)

A two-time winner already this season, Kooch cruised at the Sony in his last outing, shooting no worse than 66 en route to a drama-free four-shot win. Finished T5 here last year, in keeping with his recent profile in Scottsdale — a scoring average of 68.75 since 2009.

Chez Reavie ($8,700)

Another local hero — like Lefty, he played his college golf at Arizona State — Reavie finally found something in Scottsdale last year after a decade of futility, going 68-65-67-66 and losing in a playoff to Gary Woodland. An unblemished seven-for-seven in cuts made this season.

Byeong Hun An ($8,600)

This bomber should be cleared for takeoff at TPC Scottsdale, where he finished solo sixth in 2017 and T23 last year. Coming off a solid 12th last week in Dubai.    

Martin Laird ($7,600)

We're going heavy on local knowledge this week, and Scottsdale resident Laird fits that profile. Something about TPC Scottsdale fits his slow-and-steady game — he has four top 10s here since 2011.  

Steve Stricker ($6,500)

When you're looking for bargain basement roster fillers, you could do a lot worse than the likely 2020 U.S. Ryder Cup captain. He rarely misses cuts, and he still likes to prove he can hang with the kids.
