Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Preview | PGA AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am 2018

We have a love hate relationship with this tournament, as we love golf, but we disdain celebrity golfers. This is perhaps the most dangerous tournament if you’re a fan. You must pay attention at all times, as the likelihood of an errant drive from the likes of Alice Cooper, Michael Bolton, Larry The Cable Guy, Andy Garcia, Huey Lewis, Craig T. Nelson and even Ray Romano, is extremely high. For you young guys out there, most of these guys are celebrities, or at least they once were. Larry The Cable guy should  never have been famous, but we live in a crazy screwed up world. It’s the PGA AT&T Pebble Beach Pro Am 2018 and it’s filled with irrelevant celebrities and this should be ratings gold! GOLD!

Now onto the course(s).

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, so we won’t be trying to get an advantage for you Yahoo players out there. 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.  If you take tons of risks this week, you should be able to get away with it, even if things do go wrong. 

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.

For players that have played these courses over the last 8 years, and at least twice, these players play it the best: Phil Mickelson, Vijay Singh, Dustin Johnson, Jim Furyk, Jimmy Walker, Jason Day, Tim Clark, Pat Perez, Nick Watney, Jordan Spieth, Retief Goosen, Chesson Hedley, Brandt Snedeker, JB Holmes, Graeme Mcdowell, Mike Weir, Spencer Levin and Patrick Reed. So what do these guys have in common for the most part? Almost all of them, play solid golf to tip top golf, at the US Open. Pebble Beach is used as a US Open course, so we’ll also be focusing on players from recent years that we think are US Open type players.
