Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Preview | PGA The Players Championship 2017
It’s time for the 17th hole and the last Florida golf tournament of the year. That means more water is on the horizon for many golfers this week and hitting it will spell disaster for most. It only takes one lapse in judgement here to derail a good round and even if you hit a good one, you just never know too.
Now onto the course.The TPC Sawgrass (Stadium), is a 7,189 yards, par 72 built by the one and only Pete Dye. Even when you hit a good shot here, you just can’t be too sure. There are slopes that can take your balls to the right places, but also to the blue lagoons. The greens are also super fast and you just never know. A great shot just might get unlucky. In a way, this course doesn’t always reward good shots. Having luck on your side is a big part of your week. If you look at the leader boards over the years, it’s the course manger types that do well here. Players that are all around solid players, tee to green type guys, but also accurate off tee and with solid GIR skills. We don’t want guys that need help with scrambling, because you can’t scramble from water. Length isn’t needed here. Avoiding disaster is.
Make no mistake, no one is immune to a missed cut at this venue, as your mistakes can be magnified. A great round can become a disaster quick. This course is about course management, accuracy, ball striking, iron play and greens in regulation. These greens are big, so these guys can hit the greens, two putt, and move on. They avoid disaster.
As always, we love form coming in, and it will be a big thing for us this week, as we don’t want anyone that hasn’t been hitting consistent irons. Another recipe for a missed cut.
