2015 U.S. Women’s Open Golf Channel Fantasy Picks

3 of 5

Brittany Lincicome

Group 2:

Group 2 is interesting given the fact that we see golfers like Lexi Thompson, Michelle Wie, Carrie Webb, and Paula Creamer in this group. They have had their fair share of struggles and have fallen a bit in terms of their world ranking.

I’ve waffled on who I’m going to take and I still don’t know even as I write this. Let’s go over some names and see if who fits best.

Minjee Lee is a talented 19 year old who has been on fire of late. She won the Kingsmill Championship in May and has continued that success finishing in the top 13 in four of her last five starts, including the win at the Kingsmill.

Lee finished T-13 at the Women’s PGA Championship and she finished T-22 at last year’s U.S. Women’s Open. She looks like a great pick.

Creamer has had a lot of success at the U.S. Open. She hasn’t missed a cut at a U.S. Open since 2003. In 11 starts she has finished inside the top seven five times and she won the 2010 U.S. Open.

Amy Yang might not be a huge name, but she has tore up the U.S. Open in her career. Yang has finished inside the top ten in four of her last five starts. Plus, she is coming off a T-9 at the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship.

Brittany Lincicome has yet to miss a cut at the Women’s U.S. Open. She is 11-for-11 in cuts made and has finished inside the top fifteen in five of those years.

Lincicome is the number nine ranked golfer in the Rolex World Rankings and she is having a great year. She won the ANA Inspiration and she finished 4th at the Women’s PGA Championship.

Thompson, as we mentioned, is struggling, but she has turned it on for the majors. She finished 7th at the ANA Inspiration and 3rd at the Women’s PGA Championship.

It’s tough, a lot of fantastic golfers to choose from, but I think I convinced myself and I’m going to go with Lincicome.

She has played the U.S. Open extremely well over the years and she is in great form right now. I think she’ll be in the thick of things when the weekend rolls around.
