Daily Fantasy Golf Picks Strategy | WGC PGA Mexico Championship 2018 | Draftkings

It’s the WGC Mexico and we’re not big fans. The first reason why we’re not big fans is the size of the field. We hate no cut events. The other reason we’re not fans you ask? Well, we don’t think there will be a stat tracker this week as it’s in Mexico so that takes all the fun out everything. So yeah, this week sucks and we’ll barely be playing. Now for our shitty cut and paste of the preview.

The altitude is a big deal this course. It’s ridiculously high. How high? How about 7382 feet above sea level. To put that in perspective, TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas is only 2000 feet above Sea Level and the ball flies there. And then in Denver, at the 2014 BMW Championship at Cherry Hills, it was 5280 feet above sea level. So yeah, this is fucking high. On the European Tour, the European Masters is played at Crans-Sur-Sierre Golf Club, which resides in the Swiss Alps at approximately 4922 feet above sea level. 

With all that in mind now, the host course for this years WGC Championship is Club de Golf Chapultepec with a listed yardage of 7330 yards. However, that yardage will play more like 6450-6500. Club de Golf Chapultepec uses kiyuyu grass on the fairways & rough and a combination of poa/bent on the greens. Make sure to keep an eye on those west coast loving golfers who play better on these types of grass. 

Obviously, the biggest thing this week will be the altitude and how players adjust to figuring out their distances. Those that have played well in altitude seem like the safe plays. However, everyone got to play this last year and knows the deal now. The cream really seemed to rise to the top last year besides a couple of guys. 

Now for the breakdown but this week we are only playing one ticket. Deal with it.

THE SQUAD

Jon Rahm – We think people will default to Tommy Fleetwood due to the price, so we’ll stick with Rahm. He was 3rd in 2017.

Patrick Cantlay – He’s just a great value in this spot. He’ll may one of the highest taken guys in our opinion.

Xander Schauffele – A pretty sweet price deal for a guy just getting his game going this year.

Daniel Berger – Was 16th last year and if you take away his blip at the Genesis, he’s just been playing solid golf.

Gary Woodland – He had a post win hangover, but we’ll take him to improve over last years 38th place. He’s playing much better golf right now than he was at this point last year.

Patton Kizzire – He has two wins this year.  So we’ll use him to fill out the lower part of the team. With it being a no cut event. He’s an excellent flier.
