Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Strategy | Byron Nelson Championship PGA 2018 | Draftkings

It’s time for the very weak Byron Nelson Championship. When you have David Duval in the field, you know that we’re there is a lack of star power. If it wasn’t for Spieth and Sergio Garcia, this would be a fall season event. Throw the new course into all of this and we will have a wacky week ahead of us. Now for the shitty course preview cut and paste.

The Trinity Forest Golf Club is a Par 71, 7380 yard test of golf. It’s a Bill Coore/Ben Crenshaw-design on a sand-capped landfill in rough and tumble South Dallas. A windswept, nearly treeless expanse of dunes, waving prairie grass, and fast, undulating turf. It’s a pure links course without the ocean nearby. This course has some long par 4’s and then some very short ones. It’s a risk reward golf course that will rely on the wind as it’s main defence. Some of the greens will accept your second iron shots and from what we’re told, some will repel them. 

Now for the breakdown.

THE CORE

Jordan Spieth 100% – He’s coming off a good tournament and besides Sergio, he’s by the best player here. You wouldn’t think he’s not a value but in this shitty field, he just might be. It’s links style golf and he’s won a British Open, so he’s our big guy.

Kevin Na 100% – He’s the best value on the board in our opinion. He may not be at the top of his game right now, but he has a decent British open record and we think his type of game can suit a course like this.

Ryan Palmer 75% – He’s been terrible lately, but he’s played well on links style courses and he’s a Texan. Can he miss the cut in all of the Texas Tourneys this year? We’re betting on not. It’s a shitty field and this pick may change a little if we think he’ll be highly owned.

Bill Haas 75% – He’s not been lighting the world on fire but his price is pretty cheap for who he is. Missing the cut at TPC is forgivable and the Wells Fargo just isn’t up his alley to me. So we’re on Team Haas.

Martin Laird 50% – He’s from Scotland and has been dealing with the links his whole life. Plus, he’s been playing solid golf since February. We’ll take this combo at his sub $8000 price tag.

Graeme McDowell 50% – Has been playing half decent golf since the beginning of March and that’s better than most in this field. He’s Irish, so he’s been playing Links and wind all his life. Has solid British Open record and has been runner up at the Dunhill Links. We’ll take that.

Padraig Harrington 50% – At a very cheap price we’ll take another Irish player because of the links history. His record lately has been terrible but maybe he needs a course like this to get him going. 

Kevin Tway 50% – At $7200 you’re getting a player that’s been pretty decent since March and that’s pretty darn good down at this price level. Tough week.
