Last week Rory Mcilroy beat out Jim Furyk by 1 stroke to take The Players Championship. I only had a little bit of Rory and I had none of Furyk. Wasn’t a good week for me on any of tLost most of my entry fees on DraftKings and all my entry fees on Drafters. Definitely not off to a good start in PGA this season but that’s the nature of the game in the highest variance sport in DFS.
This week, the PGA Tour remains in Florida for the Valspar Championship. This is a unique course in that there are FIVE Par 3 holes so for the first time Par 3 Scoring is a stat I’m looking at this week. Bogey Avoidance is also very important here. It’s a Par 71 course over 7,300 yards. Top 70 and ties move on 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
- Bogey Avoidance
- Strokes Gained: Putting
- Strokes Gained: Around the Green
- Par 3 Scoring
- 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 and Drafters:
- Dustin Johnson
- Jason Day
- Jon Rahm
- Webb Simpson
- Sergio Garcia
- Paul Casey
- Patrick Reed
- Jim Furyk
- Gary Woodland
- Keegan Bradley
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.
