It's been a melancholic few days in the golf world since Max Homa's unconventional playoff win over Tony Finau on home turf at Riviera Country Club, but the PGA Tour's focus now shifts to the first WGC event on the 2020-21 schedule, as The Concession Golf Club in Florida provides the game's best with a new puzzle to solve. The Puerto Rico Open will simultaneously play host to a much weaker field, though a collection of players trying to improve their status on Tour always provides great drama regardless of name brand.
Let's take a look at a handful of season-long fantasy options who've shifted in value throughout the month of February.
It's been ages since Spieth's play last warranted an inclusion among those rising in value, probably looking all the way back to May of 2019 when he compiled three consecutive top-8s from the PGA Championship through the Memorial before a relatively-disastrous 2020 campaign. He's already surpassed the $1M mark in official earnings throughout his first 10 starts this season, however, most recently going T3-T4-T15 from the Waste Management Phoenix Open to the Genesis Invitational. Spieth ranks just 228th out of 236 on Tour in driving accuracy, but that hasn't kept him from a quality birdie average of 4.41 tweeters per round. He also resides sixth in proximity from the key range of 150-175 yards, eighth in SG: Around-the-Green, eighth in one-putt percentage and sixth in putts per round.
