If you have questions the best way to reach me is by asking your question in our private slack community in our PGA specific chat channel. While I can’t guarantee I will get to your question, the chat is the first place I check for questions so that’s the best way to get me. I rarely if ever check Facebook messenger individual messages so if you’re messaging me there you’re wasting your time. You can also post it within our Facebook group and tag me and if I see it and am free I’ll answer it there as well. If you really really really want one on one help (most of you don’t really need it, just read the article and ask questions in the chat or group), send a tip for $25 and I can give you 15 minutes via one on one chat at a time I’m available which is usually mornings.

This week the PGA Tour comes back to the United States to Akron, Ohio for the WGC-Bridgstone Invitational. Last week I did ok. Nothing out of this world but I was able to profit on both Draft as well as DraftKings. My cash lineup did cash in some contests, but not enough to be profitable. The problem is while I had all 6 of my golfers make the cut, nobody in particular did well. Finau underperformed finishing 37th. Hoffman underperformed, finishing 29th. Lovemark and Strictler both underperfomed both tied for 50th. Kirk underperformed finishing 76th. The only golfer who overperfomed was Cink who finished 37th. However, my GPP lineup as well as my Draft lineups helped me make up the gap.

This will be a very good event for several reasons. For starters, most of the best golfers in the world will be playing at this event as they will be using this event as a warm up to the final major of the year. Secondly, it’s a small field so there is no cut. You get 4 days of scoring for your golfers as long as there is no withdrawal. With no cut events, making the cut no longer matters. What matters is scoring and you want to heavily focus on golfers who can score. Birdie & Better percentage and Par scoring are significantly upgraded for me in no cut events like this one.

Anyway on to this week.

The course is located at the Firestone Country Club and is the opposite of last week in terms of difficulty. While last week was one of the easiest courses on the tour, this one is one of the hardest courses in the tour. It’s a Par 70 that’s 7,400 yards so it’s a long course. As mentioned previously there’s no cut in this event and no MDF rule in effect.

Here are the key factors that I am looking at this week in order of priority:

  • Vegas Odds To Win
  • Birdie Or Better Percentage
  • Par 4 Scoring
  • Strokes Gained Tee To Green
  • Strokes Gained Approach
  • Course History
  • Specialist Data
  • Recent Form

Here are the tools I used for research this week:

If you are playing cash lineups just use 6 of the 10 golfers I have listed in cash and make sure at least one of them is Johnson, Woods, Rose or Thomas

If you are playing GPP and you’re playing less than 20 lineups the 10 cash and 10 GPP plays are good enough to build your lineups with. If you’re playing more than 20 you may want to expand your player pool. Use the tools I linked to and look at the stats I have listed.

Finally, if you play on both sites I highly recommend doing all your drafts on Draft first before doing your DraftKings lineups. This way if you keep getting the same golfer on your teams on Draft you can reduce your exposure on DraftKings so you don’t get completely burned if that golfer has a bad weekend. Golf is a high variance sport so even the best golfers in the best spots can put up a dud (Exhibit A Dustin Johnson last week)

Good luck!
