Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Draftkings Strategy | Sentry Tournament Of Champions 2019

Due to the nature of this golf tournament and only 34 players suiting up, we’ll only be playing one team this week. We hate these small fields, with no cuts, and little differentiation between teams. Even though we’re thrilled for the season to begin, it’s kinda like a false start in our opinion. Anyway, let’s just get to our regular shitty course preview cut and paste.

In 1999, this tournament switched from Carlsbad to Kapalua in Hawaii. It’s been lengthened over the years and is now a Par 73, 7452 yard test of golf. The Bill Coore / Ben Crenshaw design is massive; sprawling over some 700 acres. The features are also big… with super wide fairways, some as much as 80 yards and extremely large and undulating greens. Wind plays a huge part in the defense of this course and past winners have scored from -8 to -30. 

So what are we looking for this week? You must be a birdie machine when it comes to this course if you want to keep up with the field. So birdie or better % is at the top of our list when searching our players. Driving the ball doesn’t seem to matter that much at this course, so the second thing we’ll be looking for is Strokes Gained Approach. If you can hit great approach shots and have birdie attempts all throughout the day, it might not matter how well you putt due to the sheer volume of opportunity. Those are the two things we’ll be looking for in a player this week. Obviously we’ll also use course history, but as far as form goes, everyone’s been on a bit of a vacation, so it’s hard to tell where they are at. 

Now for our team breakdown. 

Since we’re only playing one squad this week, everyone is in our core.

Jon Rahm – He was 2nd at this event last year, so we know this place fits his game. And because his year wasn’t as grand as his 2017 season, people were a little apprehensive about taking him in big tourneys. He has all the skills in the world to bounce back and we’re betting on it this week.

Jason Day – His biggest problem last year was his approach game, and if it’s not fixed, then this pick will be pretty terrible. However, we’ll take the risk on him figuring out his issues at the discounted price of 9000 bucks. 

Bryson Dechambeau – At $8700, he’s going to be a pretty popular guy. Even though he didn’t play well here in 2018, his season as a whole was tremendous. He has the perfect skill set for this golf course, so it’s inevitable hat he’ll win this thing one day.

Gary Woodland – His best finish at this tournament has been 13th, but we think he can improve on this number as his game progresses. He’s 34 years old and entering his prime years on tour. Most importantly, his putting has improved to being close to average, which is a huge step for turning top 25’s into top 10’s, top 10’s into top 5’s, and top 5’s into wins. We think he’s sitting on a big year and it all starts here. 

Scott Piercy – He’s a nice cheap option for a guy who has been turning the corner in his golf game once again. He makes lots of birdies when his game is on point and his approach game is always stellar. We think has has a career year left in him and we hope it starts this week.

Patton Kizzire – He’s super cheap for a guy that can win. His weakness is off the tee and that won’t be an issue here. Fantastic iron game and he makes birdies too.
