Moving up to North Carolina for the Wells Fargo Championship. Get your winning fantasy golf picks for Draftkings right here. Use them if you want to win!
Back on the winning train last week with two of my picks (Sergio and Fowler) being in the playoff. Who knew losing wasn’t fun?
I did have some sort of realization over the past two weeks. My original plan of picking players the first few weeks of playing was picking players who have been playing well of recent. Getting players to make the cut was / is the key to winning, since trying to pick who’s going to win is difficult and, frankly, pointless for all practical purposes. At the beginning, doing that was easy since Draftkings lists their cuts made to starts made ratio. But now that we’re kind of into the middle of the season, you can’t just use those numbers, since time has passed and some players with good ratios just haven’t done well recently. Basically, I was playing with old information.
Well that’s changing again this week. I’m switching to new guys who are playing well, and going back to the methods that did well at the start of the season. Guys who haven’t missed cuts in a while, and who played well at this course last year. I don’t have big names in the lineup this week, but I do have the names who will be big soon. The picks:
Sang-Moon Bae ($7,800) — Finished around 30th in his last 3 events (after missing a cut 4 tournaments ago). Played decently last year here finishing T38. I’m sensing a pattern here. Bae is going to finish… in the top 25! Just a feeling.
Erik Compton ($7,700) — Has made 5 cuts in a row after missing 5 cuts in a row. On a roll getting better. Only thing is he didn’t play here last year, but I’m putting recent finishes over course history.
Ben Martin ($8,700) — On a roll with 3 cuts made in a row, and each time finishing better. Also made the cut last year. You can tell he’s just itching to get into the winner’s circle.
Hideki Matsuyama ($10,600) — Don’t care about his price. Made 6 cuts in a row, all in the top 25. Also made the cut at the Wells Fargo last year. Golden ticket.
Pat Perez ($7,100) — 4 cuts made in a row, worst being a T26. Also made the cut last year. Damn this DFS stuff is easy right?
Kevin Kisner ($8,100) — 3 cuts in a row, two of them being second places. And he finished T6 at the Wells Fargo last year, before anyone knew his name like they do now. He’ll have a high ownership percentage for sure.
