Maybe your fantasy football squad is 0-3 and you need a weekend away from games. Maybe your college isn’t named Alabama or Clemson. Maybe your favorite baseball team was out of the pennant race two months ago. Or maybe you’re just a diehard golf nut and want to follow your action on the links.
Whatever the case, the last week in September isn’t usually considered a great one for golf – well, in non-Ryder Cup years, at least – but this should be a sneaky fun two-fer, even for the casual observers out there.
On the PGA Tour, Justin Thomas, Patrick Cantlay, Adam Scott, Hideki Matsuyama and Bryson DeChambeau headline the Safeway Open, while the European Tour’s Dunhill Links Championship boasts the likes of Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Justin Rose, Tommy Fleetwood and Shane Lowry.
Let’s get right to the picks for what should be an entertaining week, going back and forth between each of the big events.
