This week, some of the world’s best golfers are in action on opposite sides of the globe. The European Tour heads to South Korea for the Ballantine’s Championship, while the PGA Tour is in Louisiana for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Perhaps the best matchup of the week is Luke Donald vs. Nick Watney, but we pick nine matches in all and should improve on our 2011 record of 64-50-9.
