Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Strategy| Dell Technologies PGA 2017 | Fedex Cup
It’s time to get serious about making our picks this week and we think it’s the last week that a non tee to green type player has a chance to win a tourney, and it’s still not a great chance at that. Yes, there have been some that have snuck through, however, if you are hitting these greens in two at a very high clip, you’re going to have a great chance at winning here over a scrambler type. Now onto our cut and paste of our shitty preview.
The TPC Boston is a Par 71, 7214 test of golf……… or lack there of. What?! Yes. The winning score here is volatile, but for the most part, you’re going to need tons of birdies. So if you’re picking golfers that don’t make tons of birdies, have a nice time in Loserville, Population You. For the most part, in the history of this tournament, the winners have been ‘A’ List Golfers. Olin Browne was the biggest anomaly, followed by Charley Hoffman, then Chris Kirk. The last 2 are B list players but Charley Hoffman is moving up in the world these days so you never know. Everyone else has either won a Major or been Top 10 in the world at some point. So what are we looking for here? This course has 3 Par 5’s, two of them are super short and some players could have wedges into them for their 2nd shots. The 3rd Par 5 is 600 yards and can be reached by the really long bombers, which seems to be everyone these days. If you’re not scoring -8 on these holes over the 4 days, you’ve got a handicap to overcome. Par 5 Scoring is essential. The rest of the holes are a mixture of short and long Par 3’s and 4’s. Two of the Par 4’s are drivable. One at 360, the other at a paltry 298 yards. Over half your scoring should come on these 5 holes just mentioned. So what are the other ways to beat this course? Players can actually just play their game and succeed. The accurate guys will hit the fairway and greens in two. The long guys can miss the fairways and get away with it, as they’ll have short irons into the greens. But is there anything that links them all? As whole, and there are a bunch of anomalies, but as a whole, Ballstriking and Strokes Gained Tee To Green. Sergio Garcia, Jason Dufner, Henrik Stenson, Jim Furyk, John Senden, Kevin Stadler Vijay Singh, Geoff Ogilvy, Amongst other big names.
This course is all about opportunity. The more birdie opportunities you have the better, and if you’re not having tons of birdie opps than you better be making all your putts. We’re talking about you Patrick Reed.
Now to the breakdown.
Sergio Garcia 100% – He fits the criteria we’re looking for and he’s just a massive bargain. Massive. will be over owned.
Justin Rose 100% – Finally showed life last week and his price is dirt cheap. If his form is truly back then he’s an even bigger bargain than Sergio Garcia.
Marc Leishman 75% – Our favourite cheap guy. He has hasn’t had much success at this course, however, he’s playing solid golf right now and his tee to green game is where it needs to be right now to be successful here.
Daniel Berger 50% – He’s a guy that can pop at anytime and he’s been doing it often this year. A true ball striker. Gets a lot of top 10’s for only 7600 bucks.
Ian Poulter 50% – He’s more of our scrambler putter hope and at 7000 we like him to make some noise. He had a hiccup last week but this course is much shorter and he’s playing like Ryder Cup guy again.
Jason Day 50% – He’s progressing every week it seems and we still think he has a win in him before the season is done. Plus, his price was a discount to the other big names.
