So last week we didn’t have any PGA as the sites were not offering play on the Zurich Classic. This week PGA is back! It’s been a rough year so far for PGA with 4 months in. Hopefully I can start to turn it around. The plays have been good it’s just one or two guys every week that will underperform and kill me.

This week the tour moves on to The Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina. The course here is a Par 71 over 7,500 yards. That’s a HUGE course! That means we want to target golfers who can gain strokes off the tee. Golfers like Mcllroy, Woodland, Day, List and Vegas all get a bump here because they can drive the ball long and far. It’s also a difficult course so avoiding bogeys will be key. Top 70 and ties advance after the second round. The MDF rule is in effect if 78 or more 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: Off The Tee
  • Strokes Gained: Approach
  • Bogey Avoidance
  • Strokes Gained: Around The Green
  • Par 5 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:

  1. Rory McIlroy
  2. Jason Day
  3. Justin Rose
  4. Rickie Fowler
  5. Tony Finau
  6. Hideki Matsuyama
  7. Paul Casey
  8. Webb Simpson
  9. Phil Mickelson
  10. Gary Woodland

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. To cash you need to build a lineup that you feel confident that you can get all 6 players through the cut. Look at the key factors that I have listed above and then look at their cut percentages. You want golfers that rarely miss the cut if you are building a lineup to cash. If you are building a lineup to win, you need the winner and you need to get as many golfers in the top 10 as possible. Therefore when building those types of lineups, look for golfers that have high upside. I’m going to give you a list of both types of golfers below. Use this as a starting point for your lineup and then use the spreadsheet and the categories that I highlighted above to fill out the rest of your spots.

Golfers That Should Make The Cut

These are the golfers that I’m targeting with confidence on making the cut:

  • Rory McIlroy
  • Tony Finau
  • Jason Kokrak
  • Keegan Bradley
  • Keith Mitchell
  • Nick Taylor
  • Sam Burns

Golfers That Have High Upside

  • Jason Day
  • Sergio Garcia
  • Sungjae Im
  • Jhonattan Vegas
  • Joel Dahmen
  • Brendan Steele
  • Chesson Hadley

When building my lineups one of the things that Kevin Correia taught me is “Who do you have in your lineup that’s going to win?” So in other words, make sure at least one golfer in your lineup is a golfer that you believe can win this event. It’s almost impossible to win a GPP without having the winning golfer. The only time that happens is when some unknown player that’s like 1% owned wins. So make sure you have a “winner” in your lineups.
