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.

The last Major has come and gone. It was a wild weekend for me. One of my lineups was as high as 3rd place in a mass entry GPP but in the end it would not be in the cards for me this weekend on DraftKings. Draft was much better I was able to profit comfortably thanks to winning 75% of my head to heads, most of my 3 person contests as well as an 8 person 2nd place cash.

We now move on towards the end of the PGA season. This is an important time of year for the lower echelons of the PGA tour golfers. Players are trying to qualify for the playoffs to get a shot at the FedEx Championship. Players are also trying to secure their PGA Tour card for next season so that they will be able to compete on the tour next year.

This week is the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina. The Sedgefield Country Club course is one of the the easiest courses on the tour. It’s a Par 70 course that’s over 7100 yards. I’m looking for golfers with a good approach game that can rack up birdies, score well on par 4s and avoid bogeys with the numerous water hazards on this course. Steve Stricker is a great example of what I’m looking for. He’s 14th in the field in strokes gained approach. He’s 15th in birdie or better percentage. He’s 10th in Par 4 scoring. He’s 7th in bogey avoidance. It’s tough to find golfers who can rack up birdies and avoid bogeys so when I find golfers like that I will definitely look to get them in my lineups. Top 70s and ties advance after the 2nd round. The MDF rule is in effect if more than 78 golfers make the cut.

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

  • Vegas odds to win
  • Strokes Gained Approach
  • Birdie or Better Percentage
  • Par 4 Scoring
  • Bogey Avoidance
  • Specialist Data
  • Course History
  • 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. Go ahead and click Steve Stricker’s name. Don’t even think about it, just do it! Then pick 5 of the other golfers on the cash list.

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!
