Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Strategy | PGA Wells Fargo Championship 2018 | Draftkings

We have a pretty darn good field this week and we can’t wait to watch. Tiger will grace us with his presence but it’s also a really good spot for Phil to pick up another win this year as he loves this place. Will Rory blow this place out of the water? Quite possible. Let’s just get to the cut and paste of the preview.

The Quail Hollow course is a 7,442-yard par 72, featuring four par 5’s and four par 3’s. Riveting stuff, I know. Taking advantage of the Par 5’s is a huge key to winning. Also, there have been a lot of players with solid US Open histories that have played well here and you should keep that in mind when selecting players. Total driving is what’s most important in our mind and we’ll be looking hard at the top 60 list when selecting players for the week. Also, please note that Webb Simpson has a terrific record here and that’s because it’s his home course.

It’s rare that you have a course where you can arguably have 6 legit eagle chances, as the Par 5’s are reachable in two and there are two drivable Par 4’s for the very long hitters. Throw in three 200 yard plus Par 3 holes, one being 250 yards, and you can see why long driving or long hitters have chances to score here. It’s no coincidence that Rory Mcilroy, the best driver of the golf ball, wins here. 

So in order, we want Total Driving (With a lean on the Longer Drivers), Scrambling, Approaches/GIR from 200 plus yards, and Putting. Also, form does matter, so we will also be looking for players in form and with solid course history.

Now for the breakdown.

THE CORE

Phil MIckelson 100% – He’s playing tip top golf this year and he’s coming to a course that he loves. His price is a nice discount based on the way he’s playing with his course record so he’s 100%.

Lucas Glover 75% – He’s playing solid if unspectacular golf. He’s making cuts and we expect him to once in awhile have a pop. He’s won over this terrain before so at a bargain price of $6800 we are willing to take him to make the cut with some big upside.

Charles Howell 75% – He’s doing what Charles Howell does, makes cuts with the occasional high finish. We liked his price and that he plays this course in the exact same way. We’ll take that and hope that he’s not highly owned.

Webb Simpson 75% – It’s his home course and he has quite the record here. He’ll be highly taken and we’re okay with that. He’s just playing high level golf right now and he’s good value bet to win.

Chesson Hadley 50% – He continues to have a heck of a year and seems to be playing the best golf of his life right now. He’ll be highly owned as he also sports an 11th and 20th at this course in his last two tries.

Kyle Stanley 50% – We don’t think many will be on him and we needed another cheap option. He’s making cuts even though nothing special is really happening after the fact. He’s got a spotty record here but he does have a 6th, so we know he can tame this course as long as he brings his game.
