Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Preview | The Memorial PGA 2018

It’s Jack Nicklaus time. Remember Jack? The Golden Bear? Me neither. I heard he was amazing and won every tournament, then the PGA tried altering courses so he wouldn’t win so much, then he was even more amazing, and then he didn’t care about shit and became a total baller. He had sex with tons of porn stars, gambled, grew a goatee, ordered room service for every meal, he even lost a tooth and doesn’t remember how. Sounds like a pretty cool dude to me. Well, this tournament is his and it’s prestigious because of him. Everyone comes to play it, even Tiger will be here!! Sounds like a sweet party to me. 

The 7392 yard, Par 72 of Muirfield Village is a golfers golf course indeed. It’s not long, nor is it too short. It’s not a course that favours any specific type of player. The course gives you options on how you want to beat it. There are some risk/rewards here and there. You can be patient, or you can be aggressive. Each has their own consequence. The greens aren’t the biggest, and they’re about 13 on the Stimpmeter. All you need to do is pick the right line and get the ball rolling. Tiger Woods has won here 5 times in 14 tries, but relying on him to figure out who will do well this week, won’t issue you many answers. He was just too good at everything. Plus, he had shots in his bag that no one else did. Below we’re going to name some players with at least 3 starts, with cut making history or better, to hopefully provide some insight on who to pick this week.

Matt Kuchar, David Hearn, Stewart Cink, Jim Furyk, Ryan Moore, Tim Clark, Scott Stallings, Charl Schwartzel, KJ Choi, Adam Scott, Bo Van Pelt, Luke Donald, Ernie Els, Steve Stricker, Paul Casey, Ricky Barnes, Sergio Garcia, Rory Mcilroy, Vijay Singh, Kenny Perry, Rory Sabbatini, Dustin Johnson, Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Even Brandt Jobe.

If you look at the players mentioned, you’ll notice right away that they’re very good total drivers. This isn’t a golf course you want to miss fairways and greens on. Also, if you look at their stats history, the one thing they all have in common is they’re consistently good at proximity to the hole. Some years they’re slightly above average, others they’re top 30. But it’s the one thing they all have in common. 

As stated above, you can beat this course in many different ways. You can play your style of game and do well. However, the most consistent histories come from the players with the ability to stay out of the rough, with an overall proximity history. 

This brings an end to our short preview. We’ll be concentrating on the total driving, proximity types, plus those who are in form coming in. Good luck to all.
