It’s my first PGA article in almost a month! May was a pretty hectic month for me between work and then I took a LONG OVERDUE one week vacation! I have another one coming up as well later this month but that one will be a little shorter only 5 days.
This week, the PGA Tour goes to Canada for the RBC Canadian Open. They call this Canada’s Major. This event is held outside Toronto. We only have two years of course History and the most recent is 2012 so I will not be factoring course history at all for this event. It’s a small course less than 7,000 yards Par 70. Skinny fairways though so you can’t just bomb your way through this course. If you’re not accurate you will be in the rough.
Here are the key factors I am looking at this week in order of priority:
- Vegas Odds to win
- Strokes Gained: Approach
- Greens In Regulation
- Bogey Avoidance
- Strokes Gained: Putting
- Birdie Or Better Percentage
- Recent Form
Here are the tools that I use this week:

On Draft, 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:
- Dustin Johnson
- Brooks Koepka
- Rory Mcllroy
- Justin Thomas
- Matt Kuchar
- Webb Simpson
- Sergio Garcia
- Scott Piercy
- Henrik Stenson
- Brandt Snedeker
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:
- Dustin Johnson – 11.9k DK 12.6K FD
- Webb Simpson – 9.7k DK 10.8k FD
- Henrik Stenson – 9.1k DK 10.6k FD
- Bud Cauley – 8.4k DK 9.8k FD
- Erik van Rooyen – 7.8k DK 9.k FD
- Graeme McDowell – 7.6k DK 9.1k FD
- Nick Watney – 7.5k DK 8.8k FD
Golfers That Have High Upside
These are the golfers that have more risk but have the potential to exceed their price tag:
- Matt Kuchar – 10.5k DK 11.3k FD
- Scott Piercy – 9.3k DK 10.5k FD
- Jim Furyk – 8.8k DK 10.1k FD
- Aaron Wise – 7.8k DK 9.8k FD
- Corey Conners – 7.5k DK 8.9k FD
- Dylan Frittelli – 7.3k DK 8.7k FD
- Nate Lashley – 6.7k DK 8k FD
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.
