Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Strategy | The Northern Trust PGA 2018 | Fedex Cup | Draftkings
We’re down to the last 125 guys on Tour. They all have their cards for next year and there’s zero pressure on them this week. Can we have an upset winner? We hops so. We like seeing guys that barely make the Top 125 make a deep run into the playoffs. Also, go Tiger! Now onto a shitty cut and paste of the course preview.
The Ridgewood Country Club is the host after a four year hiatus as being the host of The Barclays, and it’s a most interesting three 9-hole courses. The PGA will be choosing their favourite routing of 18 for this years version which is different from previous versions too. The routing will offer the first seven holes from the East Course, mix in five from the Center (Nos. 2-6), and conclude with six from the West (Nos. 4-9). This will all total a 7,385-yard, par-71 test of golf when all is said and done.
If there’s one thing we took notice of from previous leaderboards, it’s that length doesn’t matter much at this course and you had all types of golfers competing. Names that popped up near the top on more than one occasion were: Matt Kuchar, Kevin Streelman, Martin Laird, Jason Day, Jim Furyk, Stuart Appleby, and Paul Casey.
It’s a real mixture of different game types with some being ball strikers and others being great putters. However, we’ll stick to SGTG type players here but with an emphasis on the shorter hitters based on course history. As always we like form and putters too.
Now for the breakdown.
Francesco Molinari 100% – He fits our short hitting SGTG player perfectly. He’s been in top form all summer long and his putting has been tip top too. His price is right and if it weren’t for Brooks Koepka, he’d be gunning for player of the year.
Matt Kuchar 100% – Has a solid history at this golf course and that includes a win. Even though he’s been hit or miss lately, he fits our criteria and we’re all in.
Byeong Hun An 75% – He’s knocked on the door for his first PGA win twice this year but came up short on both. SGTG he’s up there with the best and we just hope his putts drop this week. Solid course manager.
Ryan Moore 75% – He has five Top 10’s in twenty tourneys this year but hasn’t seemed to have contended at all. His putter has been a let down and keeping him from that but we think its only a matter of time before he gets that stroke back. He’s never played well here and hopefully we can get him low owned because of it.
Zach Johnson 50% – He’s still due for a big finish this year and we’re going to ride him until the end. He fits what we’re looking for and was 22nd and 21st in his last two here.
Patrick Cantlay 50% – His SGTG, form, and price were right in our wheelhouse. Mr. Consistency.
Emiliano Grillo 50% – He’s very cheap and has the skills we want. He’s a cut maker with upside. we just need the putts to fall.
