Daily Fantasy Golf Pick Strategy | PGA Wells Fargo Championship 2017 | Draftkings UPDATE
After the week off and with this weakish field, we just don’t feel like playing a lot this week going into a blind scenario. So we’re going to load up on a few guys and let the chips fall where they may. Our mind is on our one and done pick. Here’s the cut and paste for the week.
First things first. The Zurich Classic sucks. I don’t care for team events at all…. Now onto the next thing…. Throw out all your history for this event as we’re at a new course this year, which means I actually had to do work and that just sucks. Writing this golf report while you have a fear of being watched by everyone in the coffee shop is just a scary phobia to have. It’s called Scopophobia and it’s not the best fear or phobia to have. I’m off track here. Let’s get back to golf.
We’re going in blind this week and let your theories fall where they may.
Now to the course. Eagle Point Golf Club is a 7,259 yard, par 72. The Tom Fazio design, opened in 2000, serves as the event’s stand-in host with Quail Hollow Club preparing for the PGA Championship in August. Accentuating North Carolina’s coastal geography, Fazio and his team built up a mostly flat swath of land with gentle contours and mature pines to make it look like they’ve been there forever.
From what we hear, the course is is pristine condition to the point that not a blade of grass is out of place. Now…..How will it play?
We think it will be a scorers paradise. It’s not a very long Par 72 and they mix the holes up with some longer Par 3’s and a few long Par 4’s. However, due to the extension of some of those Par 3’s, you get a bunch of pretty short Par 4’s and if you’re a long hitter, you’ll be able to hit all the Par 5’s in two. There’s water lurking due to ponds, creeks and an inter-coastal throughout the course and you also have some trees and bunkers here and there. The fairways are a mish-mash of tight holes and wider fairways as well. So what shall we look for? We’re going with a scorers heaven. Birdie or Better Percentage. Par 5 Scorers. We’re not sure how the rough will be cut, but if you can hit from it, you’ll be making birdies here. We might lean on some long iron hitters as well. With some 200 plus yard Par 3’s and all the Par 5’s being reachable, plus a few long Par 4’s. Half your second shots might possibly come at 200 plus yards. So we’re going in blind, but that’s our theory right there.
