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 is the FINAL Major on the PGA Tour, The PGA Championship! This year the Championship takes place at the Bellerive Country Club in St Louis, Missouri. Last week was simply brutal. How can you have the winning golfer as your highest owned golfer in your player pool and still not cash? I just suck at these no cut events that’s how! My cash lineup had Justin Thomasand then everybody else did no better than 24th. GPP was even worse! While I didn’t lose as bad on Draft I still lost there as well. Hopefully the Major will be at least as kind to me as the Open Championship was!

The course this week is a Par 70 course that is over 7,300 yards. It’s a long course so you definitely want golfers who can drive it off the tee. However, even more important than that is you want golfers with a strong approach game. That’s because there are a lot of slopes built into this course. The Top 70 and ties advance after round 2 and there is no MDF rule in effect. The event is held at a different venue each year so I will not be looking at course history.

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

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

Here are the tools I used for research this week:

  3. Tommy Fleetwood – $9,300
  4. Jon Rahm – $9,100
  5. Henrik Stenson – $8,700
  6. Patrick Cantlay – $8,400

  8. Chesson Hadley – $7,300
  9. Thorbjorn Olesen – $6,700
  10. Chez Reavie – $6,500 (His form is gross but his game is a good fit here)

If you are playing cash lineups just use 6 of the 10 golfers I have listed in cash. Go ahead and click Joaquin Niemann’s name. Don’t even think about it, just do it! Then pick 5 of the other golfers on the cash list and make sure one of them is Dustin Johnson or Justin 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.

Good luck!
