Last week, Keith Mitchell took down the top prize in The Honda Classic, beating out Rickie Fowler by 1 stroke. I didn’t have a good weekend. Only played one contest on Drafters because I didn’t realize their contest locked at 7pm Wednesday night. Fortunately they fixed that this week. On Draft, I had too much exposure to Adam Scott who missed the cut. On DraftKings I had a MDF and a Missed Cut in my main lineup which buried me and none of my GPP lineups did well.
This week the PGA Tour moves on to Orlando, Florida for The Arnold Palmer Invitational. Played at the Bay Hill golf course we have a Par 72 course that measures over 7,400 yards. With a long course like this we can go back to looking at golfers who gain strokes off the tee as bombing first shots will help here. Two of the past winners here Rory Mcllroy and Jason Day are #1 and #7 in Strokes Gained Off The Tee. It’s a smaller field though so there’s less golfers available to miss the cut. That means unless the chalk busts you will need a higher score to cash and will need to get most if not all of your golfers through the cut. Top 70 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
- Strokes Gained: Off The Tee
- Birdie or Better Percentage
- Par 5 Scoring
- Strokes Gained: Putting
- Recent Form
- Course History
Here are the tools that I use this week:

On Draft and Drafters, your primary concern is to draft the best golfers in the field regardless of position. A great way to assess that is to start with Vegas Odds to Win. Then look at the key statistics that are important to you and move golfers up or down as you see fit. Here are my top 10 plays on Draft:
- Justin Rose
- Rory Mcllroy
- Rickie Fowler
- Jason Day
- Bryson DeChambeau
- Brooks Koepka
- Marc Leishman
- Hideki Matsuyama
- Tommy Fleetwood
- Phil Mickelson
DraftKings & FanDuel Plays
On DraftKings and FanDuel salary is important. A player can be a good player but a bad play on DraftKings or FanDuel because of their price. I’m going to do it a little different this week.
