CareerBuilder Challenge - OAD

The CareerBuilder Challenge looks to be colder and wetter than what we are used to seeing, but that isn't swaying us from taking a familiar stalwart in our one-and-done game. Bill Haas, who is a two-time winner and one-time runner-up cracks the lineup narrowly over Jamie Lovemark.


Best of luck to all!

Sony Open - One-and-Done

I'm trotting out a familiar one-and-done play in the Sony Open this week. Given his excellent course history, Charles Howell III is the play. If it wasn't Perez, I would be tempted by a hot Pat Perez.


Best of luck to all!

SBS Tournament of Champions - One-and-Done

Aloha! and Happy New Year!


The SBS Tournament of Champions is set to kick off in a little under 24 hours, and it's time to name this week's one-and-done selection.


There are two strategies to consider. Because it is a limited field, and everyone makes the cut, you can go big and chase the win with a stud or plug in a relative no name and know you will cash. Personally, my taste is to go big and chase the win, as elite players have less players to sift through on their way to the title.


That means I'm taking a guy with a first and a second in his last two trips to Kapalua by the name of Patrick Reed. Spieth is tempting, but there are other places that make just as much sense. Matsuyama was also quite tempting.


Best of luck to all!

RSM Classic - One-and-Done

The RMS Classic ends the 2016 portion of the 2016-17 PGA TOUR schedule, which means one more one-and-done before a bit of a layoff.


I'm going chalky this week, taking a past champion in Chris Kirk who enters on the heels of three top 10s in his last four PGA TOUR starts.


Best of luck to all!

OHL Classic at Mayakoba - One-and-Done

The OHL Classic at Mayakoba returns to El Camaleon GC. For this week's one-and-done selection, I'm taking a guy entering this week on the heels of back-to-back top 10s and who also finished T8 in this event last year. That would be Keegan Bradley.


Best of luck to all!

Shriners Hospitals for Children Open - One-and-Done

This week's one-and-done pick for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open is a local favorite. Nope, not Ryan Moore. We already used him. It's Scott Piercy's turn!


My apologies for no picks last week. In my game I played Patton Kizzire in Mississippi and Russell Knox in the WGC-HSBC. I was out of the country and internet was a little hard to come by.


Cheers!

CIMB Classic - One-and-Done

The CIMB Classic returns to TPC Kuala Lumpur, with Justin Thomas serving as the defending champion. It's a bit laughable that the second event of the PGA TOUR season offers a dilemma in the one-and-done format, but such is the case. At least for me.


Part of being successful in OADs is deciding when to stick to the plan and when to deviate. Sticking to the plan would call for Ryan Moore this week. He's a two-time winner here, played great in the FedExCup Playoffs and enjoyed a solid Ryder cup debut.


Altering the plan would call for Paul Casey. He's finished inside the top four in each of his last four starts, but offers a pretty bland course history. Simply put, he's too hot to ignore.


So what do we do?


It's early in the season. While my historic flaw in OADs is favoring course history over current form, Moore's form is also extremely good. In fact, it's good enough to stick to the plan. Moore it is!
