I hope you are at the least turning the golf on within the late afternoon/night on Sundays, as a result of for the fourth straight week the Tour has completed with a playoff. This week it was Gary Woodland and Chez Reavie who needed to play a 73rd gap to crown a champion. Woodland completed with birdies on 15, 16, and 17, whereas Reavie birdied his ultimate two holes. Reavie sank an unimaginable 20-footer on the 18th to power a playoff. It was the large Kansas native Woodland who got here away with the victory, making a par on the primary playoff gap. Reavie missed the inexperienced and left his third shot 11 ft away. Woodland was topped champion for the third time in his profession, and his first since 2013 on the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Following the raucous festivities in Phoenix, the Tour heads to the famed Pebble Seashore for one of the crucial enjoyable tournaments to view on TV. The AT&T Pebble Seashore Professional-Am is the one event by which golfers play alongside celebrities for all 4 rounds. (Typically pro-ams are performed between Monday-Wednesday) Invoice Murray all the time steals the present together with his antics, however there are many different large names, a few of whom have a powerful golf recreation. Some notables this yr are Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Wayne Gretzky all the time tees it up together with his son-in-law Dustin Johnson, Justin Timberlake, Ray Romano, Kenny G, Alfonso Ribeiro, Larry Fitzgerald, and naturally the previous gunslinger turned CBS analyst, Tony Romo.

So far as DFS golf goes, the PGA gamers themselves will play a daily particular person stroke-play event. The celebrities will likely be utilizing their handicap to play a best-ball staff format with their skilled. Here is the place the celebrities throw a bit wrench into issues. As an alternative of a 36-hole reduce, they play a 54-hole reduce. So, everybody will likely be enjoying a minimal of three rounds of golf. Nonetheless, as a substitute of the Prime 70 and ties, to make the reduce you have to be throughout the Prime 60 and ties. The gamers who’ve been reduce between 61 and 70 will likely be awarded FedEx Cup factors and money, however they are going to be listed as MDF (made-cut didn’t end). So, so far as every day fantasy goes, ending there doesn’t assist us. Additionally, one thing to recollect is that is one other event by which the gamers will likely be rotating round three programs. The primary three days everybody will rotate between Pebble Seashore, Spyglass Hill, and Monterey Peninsula. The ultimate spherical gamers and celebrities who’ve made the reduce will play Pebble for a second time.

Who’s on the market this week from the golf world? We’ll begin with eighth world ranked golfer Rory McIlroy. McIlroy will likely be making his first ever begin on the AT&T Pebble Seashore Professional-AM, and his first PGA Tour begin for the reason that 2017 FedEx Cup Playoffs. A superb mixture of established vets and younger weapons will inhabit the oceanside programs this week. Within the established vets nook Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Paul Casey, Matt Kuchar, Adam Scott, Brandt Snedeker, Branden Grace, Russell Henley, Bubba Watson, Charley Hoffman, J.B Holmes, Billy Horschel, Pat Perez, Kevin Kisner, and returning after final week’s playoff-finish are each Gary Woodland and Chez Reavie. In our younger weapons nook, we have now Jordan Spieth, Jon Rahm, Patrick Cantlay, Patrick Reed, Austin Prepare dinner, Bryson DeChambeau, Talor Gooch, Grayson Murray, Beau Hossler and Aaron Sensible. So, there’s loads of expertise to select from. The query is, who will thrive with a star by their facet all week?

As talked about earlier than, the gamers will likely be making their approach round three completely different programs earlier than heading again to Pebble for the ultimate spherical. The 54-hole reduce format implies that you have to be concentrating on gamers who can rack up the birdies. Ideally, you need all of your guys to make the reduce however aiming for gamers who rank excessive in birdie or higher % is a strong technique. If they cannot make the reduce, dropping 15 birdies will definitely assist your DFS rating. All three programs are underneath 7,000 yards, making them among the many shortest on Tour. The standard winner right here has a stellar wedge recreation since most photographs will likely be coming in from inside 120 yards. Frequent ranges to take a look at are strategy proximity 75-100 and 100-125 yards.

The brief and slender tracks have most gamers leaving driver within the bag, leading to extra accuracy off-the-tee throughout the board. This event is in regards to the wedge and brief recreation. The greens are tiny and consistently rank as one of many hardest to gap putts on. Take a look at gamers who get across the greens effectively with Strokes gained: around-the-green. Distance is all the time useful, however this week the brief programs neutralize the long-hitters benefit. If you could find a bomber with a tender contact across the greens, go for it. The one benefit long-hitters have this week is the truth that they will have virtually a full urge for food of Par 5s. Nonetheless, Par 5 scoring is extra necessary than driving distance.

DFS Golf Picks on DraftKings

Jason Day ($10,900)

Jason Day is formally again after profitable the Farmer’s Insurance coverage Open two weeks in the past. He proved he is prepared for the large moments once more by knocking off Ryan Palmer and Alex Noren in six holes value of playoffs. Day loves enjoying this occasion. His final thrice right here he is completed fifth, 11th, and 4th. In case you watched these playoff holes at Torrey Pines, you noticed how lethal Day is from 100-125 yards. He ranks fifth in strategy proximity from that size this yr, eighth in birdie %, and 28th in strokes gained: across the inexperienced. Day ought to maintain his scorching begin to 2018 going.

Kevin Kisner ($eight,200)

Kevin Kisner is a person with no weaknesses. Kisner ranks Prime 25 within the subject in Par 5 scoring, birdie or higher %, and strategy proximity from 75-100 yards, and 100-125 yards. Kisner completed in 10th place on this occasion as effectively, so he checks all of the containers you need from him. The South Carolina native could be very used to enjoying oceanside programs; it is simply often a distinct ocean subsequent to him.

Brandt Snedeker ($eight,100)

Snedeker has been slowly however certainly regaining his type. At $eight,100, I really like his worth. That is, by far, Sneddy’s finest occasion on Tour. He is gained the occasion two occasions, 2013 and 2015, and positioned fourth in 2017. Sneddy is named a short-game grasp. He ranks 10th on Tour in strokes gained: across the inexperienced and he is throughout the Prime 25 within the subject from 75-100 yards out. I am in search of Snedeker to completely regain type this week in his third occasion of 2018.

Chez Reavie ($eight,000)

Reavie has quietly been essentially the most constant participant on Tour this yr. He is been piling up the

Prime 25s, and practically cashed in with a win final week. Two years in the past, Reavie was sixth heading into the ultimate day at Pebble, however a 77 derailed his strong week. Reavie is way too constant for that type of meltdown this season. He is a primary spherical beast this season, with 69 being his worst Thursday spherical. Total, he hasn’t shot worse than 74 in any of his 32 aggressive rounds.

Patrick Reed ($7,900)

Patrick Reed followers are nonetheless ready for him to return to his outdated type, when he was profitable tournaments and wagging his finger at Rory McIlroy within the Ryder Cup. Maybe the positioning of Rory McIlroy will get his juices pumping. This occasion performs to Reed’s strengths. He is seventh in strokes gained: around-the-green, and eighth in strategy proximity 100-125 yards this season, and he ought to see numerous approaches from that distance. Reed completed contained in the Prime 30 in 2015 and 2017 right here, and T6 in 2016, so he is definitely snug on these tracks.

Rafa Cabrera-Bello ($6,900)

Rafa Cabrera-Bello has been making his approach across the Euro Tour as of late and enjoying effectively, I would add. Cabrera-Bello’s greatest weak spot, driving accuracy, is taken away at this course. Cabrera-Bello can put the driving force in his bag for many holes and hit an iron or fairway wooden to maintain his ball in play. From there, he should not have any drawback sticking his wedges and brief irons onto greens. He is probably not tremendous aware of the programs, however Cabrera-Bello is ranked quantity 21 on the earth. You do not get ranked that top with out determining some programs that you do not play as typically.
