Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Preview | John Deere Classic 2018 | PGA

The John Deere Classic is in its usual shitty spot, right before the British Open, and the field reflects it in every way. It’s surprising that Francesco Molinari is playing this event, but he must feel that his game is so good right now that this field and pay cheque are easy pickings.

The TPC Deere Run, a Par 71, 7268 yard test of golf. The winner usually finishes around the -20 mark, sometimes a little less or more. So shooting 66 every day will be needed if you want to win this thing. When looking at the course history, you notice that players hit the fairways at 56% clip on average, but they hit the greens at a whopping 72% average. They’ve got large greens at this course, so even though some players may not rank highly, as far as number of putts per round goes, it’s usually because they hit so many greens. Hitting greens and being a great putter go a long way here. 

So I mentioned above that you must hit greens and putt. When you look at players with solid history here: Zach Johnson, Steve Stricker, Jerry Kelly, Tim Clark, Scott Brown, Ryan Moore, Jordan Spieth, and Brian Harman. You’ll notice that for the most part, they’re short off the tee, so length doesn’t matter. Coinciding with the above stats, we also like players that are Above Average in Par 3 and 4 scoring, plus being a solid All Around Player doesn’t hurt.
