Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Strategy | PGA The Memorial 2018 | Draftkings

As always, it’s a star studded field for The Memorial in Ohio. It’s Jack’s tournament and everyone is here to pay their respects for arguably the greatest player of all time.We’re excited because Tiger has won here more than once and we hope that he never takes out driver this week, just like he did earlier in the year. We Believe!!! Now for the shitty copy and paste of the preview.

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. 


Matt Kuchar 100% – He’s just doing what he normally does. Makes tons of cuts gets a big finish here and there. He loves getting big finishes at this course so he’s on the squad. He’ll be super popular.

Tiger Woods 75% – Earlier in the year he placed 2nd and the Valspar and barely took out his driver. We think he does the same type club down here and contends quite nicely this week. He’s won here before and just loves this course. He’s our favorite top guy this week.

Adam Hadwin 75% – With a more top star field this week, a guy like Hadwin gets shunned to being low end of your ticket type meat. However, if you look at Hadwin over the last two years, you’ll see nothing but consistency. He makes cuts and grinds it out. He doesn’t have a top 10 here yet, but we think it’s inevitable for a guy with his game.

Ryan Moore 75% – He’s pretty under the radar right now in our opinion and he can pop at anytime. He does have three top tens in his last 9 tourneys, so we think he’s a nice low owned option here. He makes cuts at this event but just hasn’t broken through. We like his value.


Tony Finau 50% – He’s having another solid year and a win here would be his most prestigious. In his three years over this course, he’s never missed the cut and has an 8th, 11th, and a 40th. We didn’t mind his price, so he made the squads.

Marc Leishman 50% – Plain and simple, he makes cuts here. We’ll take his consistency at this course with the combo of his current play, which is three top 10’s in his last six tourneys. He’s just getting better and better.

Kevin Na 50% – He’s knocking on the door the last two weeks and you can just feel a big one coming. This is the perfect spot for him to get another win on tour. He’s been 2nd here before and he’s quite confident coming into this one.

Louis Oosthuizen 50% – Did you watch him with his dialed in irons last week? Enough said. He’s feeling it and has a peak performance coming any week now.
