Last week was a solid week for me. I cashed on all three sites, including almost taking down the $11 PGA contest on Drafters. My cash plays listed in the article all made the cut and I had the winner of the event Dylan Frittelli in my section of golfers with high upside. So if you used this article last week, you too should have had a pretty solid week.
This week the PGA Tour moves on the final major of the year, The Open Championship! This year, the Open will be held in Ireland at the Royal Portrush Golf Club. There’s no course history available since the open hasn’t been held at this place in decades and even if there were, it would be irrelevant due to all the changes that have taken place to the course since then. It’s a Par 71 course that’s over 7,300 yards. Weather can be tricky over here but right now there aren’t any concerns that make it necessary to target golfers at certain tee times. Top 70 and ties move on after the 2nd round. There is no MDF rule this week (thank God!)
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: Off The Tee
- Strokes Gained: Putting
- Strokes Gained: Tee to Green
- Recent Form
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:
- Rory Mcllroy
- Brooks Koepka
- Dustin Johnson
- Justin Rose
- Tiger Woods
- Jon Rahm
- Francesco Molinari
- Xander Schauffele
- Tommy Fleetwood
- Adam Scott
Please note, these top 10 plays are also all great plays for DraftKings and FanDuel as well. You will just have to pay top dollar for them.
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. Slight change this week, I am only listing golfers here that are NOT already listed in my top 10 on Draft and Drafters. The reason why is obvious. If they are a top 10 play on Draft and Drafters then I obviously like their chances of making the cut.
- Patrick Cantlay – 9.0k DK 10.8k FD
- Matt Kuchar – 8.7k DK 10k FD
- Hideki Matsuyama – 8.5k DK 10.3k FD
- Henrik Stenson – 8.4k DK 10.1k FD
- Marc Leishman – 7.7k DK 9.7k FD
- Webb Simpson – 7.6k DK 9.4k FD
- Rafa Cabrera Bello – 7.5k DK 9.3k FD
In addition to these players, everyone who is listed as a top 10 play for Draft and Drafters, I consider them very likely to make the cut.
Golfers That Have High Upside
These are the golfers that have more risk but have the potential to exceed their price tag. Like the make the cut plays, I’m not including anybody who I have listed as a top 10 play on Draft and Drafters.
- Bryson DeChambeau – 9.2k DK 10.6k FD
- Justin Thomas – 9.1k DK 10.7k FD
- Jason Day – 8.6k DK 10.4k FD
- Shane Lowry – 7.9k DK 9.8k FD
- Lee Westwood – 7.4k DK 9k FD
- Bernd Wiesberger – 7.1k DK 9.6k FD
- Andy Sullivan – 7k DK 7.9k FD
When building my lineups one of the things that Kevin Correia, leader of DFS Masters 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.
Also, look at the spreadsheet that I attached above. It has all of the key statistics that I mentioned above. These golfers I have listed here are just some examples. If you look at the spreadsheet and look at the key statistics that I highlighted you can find other good players both for the make the cut category and for the high upside with more risk category.
