After a week off from betting (we’re calling it the All-Star Break), DFS Golf kicks back up with a great field at the Players! See who you should pick below.
Well I’ve been slacking a little with two weeks of losses before the All Star Break last week. But we’re back in a situation like the Masters with a great field where you’re going to find good players with cheaper prices. Instead of looking for cheap guys to play well, we’re looking for good guys who are going to win. Little different mindset, but in the end, it’s just picking players.
Jason Day ($9,900) — Actually picking him as a winner here. Not often I do this but I’m really liking Day to win, not just play well.
Brendon de Jonge ($6,500) — The hell is he doing at this price? Expect high percentages of ownership.
Rickie Fowler ($8,500) — Coming off a little time off with a MC at Zurich and an early exit at the match play. I’m usually against picking guys who’ve been trending down, but I’m thinking that this time off will be a good mental break to refocus and start playing good golf again.
Sergio Garcia ($9,800) — Good history, solid play. Not much more to say.
Jason Kokrak ($6,800) — Similar to BDJ, low price for how he’s been playing.
Lee Westwood ($8,400) — Looking for Lee Bestwood this week. At least has a little confidence after beating Spieth. Not that someone of his experience needs confidence. Also has good history here. And he lives in Florida! Triple threat.
Coming into this week feeling pretty good having cashed my 50/50’s three weeks in a row prior to last week. As Jack noted, this field is stacked and players’ prices have been adjusted accordingly, meaning that there are plenty of bargains to be had. Because of this, it’s more important than usual to get all of your players into the weekend because every team will have strong, consistent players.
Matt Kuchar ($9,400) — A nice low price for Kooch, it’s hard to pass on his consistent if unspectacular play and good course history.
Adam Scott ($9,000) — Seems quite low for Scott, but I guess he hasn’t played great this year. Still a tremendous player and a former champion here.
Jimmy Walker ($8,800) — This is a no brainer pick, he should probably be over ten grand if the prices were actually indicative of performance probability. My only concern is that he was trying out new irons on Monday…
Sean O’Hair ($7,600) — His form has been great this year, and he’s made cuts at the Players even while playing awful golf by his standards.
Charley Hoffman ($7,400) — I like Charley here, nice steady play by him this year without many crazy numbers. May not contend to win, but has a great shot to make the cut.
Ian Poulter ($7,200) — Crazy low for how Poults has been playing, has the game to compete here and his recent form has been too good to ignore.
