Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Preview | PGA AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2019
Hey all! Since it’s a three day cut tournament, you’ll be able to take a lot more risk this week on the lower priced players. YEEEEEEEE HAWWWWWWWW! We’re not a big fan of this tournament but we’ll make due anyway. There are a handful of players that are consistent cut makers at this tournament but it’s few and far between. And since most of those players are in the top tier of stars, making team you like this week may be difficult. But as I said earlier, at least it’s a three day cut to minimize your damage. Now here’s our shitty cut and paste of the preview.
The AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am is played over three courses and there’s no cut until after round three. It’s important for you fantasy golfers out there, because it allows you to take more risk on cheap players, with fewer consequences. Now back to the courses. There are 3 of them: Pebble Beach Golf Links, Monterey Peninsula and Spyglass Hill.
Pebble Beach Golf Links is a Par 72, 6816 Yards, Monterey Peninsula is a Par 71, 6838 Yards, and Spyglass Hill is a Par 72, 6858 Yards. All three courses give players the ability to go low. The first thing you should take notice of, is the fluctuation in scores over the years. Weather makes a huge difference at this tournament, as the course(s) biggest defense is the wind.
You can attack these courses in two different ways. You can either be a long hitter, preferably a long hitter with an excellent Total Driving ranking, who can also hit wedges from the rough. Or you can be a course manager type player, who can play the wind. Players hit tons of fairways and greens here because they club down off the tee, and manage themselves around the terrain. However, those are in no wind years. With wind up, they’ll be missing more fairways and greens, especially greens, as they aren’t the biggest. So you’ll need to be able to scramble from 20 yards inward. For the shorter course manager type players, we’d like them to have Par 5 Scoring ability, as most in the Top 10, score half their final tallies on the Par 5’s. Players need to be aggressive on these courses, but in reality, it all comes down to putting. And you’ll notice, of the players that play consistently well here, they like Poa Annua greens. And we’ll be aiming for players like that this week.
Now For The Breakdown……
* We’ve made some alterations and started adding players with strong Strokes Gained Total Stats
Lowered Brandt Snedeker 75% – He loves Poa Annua greens and is a two time winner of this event. Is he playing the greatest recently? Not really, but at his price and the lack of true cheap horses, he’s making every squad at his $8200.
Lowered Adam Scott 50% – Does he have the record here? Nope. But he’s an Aussie and they seem to play well here as a whole, plus he’s playing well coming in here. We liked his price as a discount to the big stars. Has solid Poa putting stats.
Patrick Reed 75% He’s got a high of 6th at this tourney with a 7th, 13th, 23rd, 19th and a missed cut. He can win at any time and we really liked his price. A discount to the top stars with the same upside.
Lowered Shane Lowry 25% – He’s never missed a cut at this tournament with a 43rd, 14th, 41st, and a 21st. He’s won on the Euro Tour already this year and then followed it up with a 12th. We’ll take it.
Removed Kevin Na 0% – He’s made 7 of 11 cuts with high of 4th and 5th over his history, which isn’t too shabby compared to the rest in his price range. Is an injury bothering him still? Maybe. But we’re taking the chance he’s healthy after making the cut last week.
Increased Chesson Hadley 100% – He wasn’t playing great golf and then he had a decent showing last week. And if it wasn’t for a brutal 5 hole stretch, in which he putted the ball off the green, his tourney would have looked a lot different. He’s got a 35, mc, and two 10th’s here, so we’re willing to back him after a week he made lots of birdies. He can score on Par 5’s.
Removed Scott Stallings 0% – Are we being suckered by his history? 7th, 4th, and two missed cuts a long time ago? Maybe. BUt his Poa stats are solid and that’s what we’re banking on. At the Farmers Insurance he played pretty solid and that was encouraging to us. This will be much easier conditions depending on the wind.
Increased Patrick Rodgers 100% – Our cheapest flyer, but he’s been 8th at this tourney in his only try. He can putt on Poa and that’s saying a lot because he’s not the best putter in the world. He should be able to tame these Par’s 5’s with short irons into the greens too. He was really turning the corner in his game over the last half year but has stalled in January, but we think he can that form back. Our cheapie special.
Removed J.B. Holmes
Increased Paul Casey 50%
Added Rafa Cabrera Bello
Added Russell Knox
Removed Patrick Cantlay
Added Sungjae Im
ADDED Phil Mickelson
