PGA Lineup Advice: The Honda Classic
I will get the ball rolling here. Thoughts on this DK lineup for GPP's?

Not much to critique here... Bohn, Kirk and O'Hair are all decent bets to make the cut.
If there was one guy I might pivot away from it is Jimmy Walker. Traditionally he has feasted on the beginning part of the season, it particular the Hawaii events and the West Coast swing. At $9K, he is really good value considering his win %, but I prefer some of the players in the low $8,000 range like Daniel Berger, Justin Thomas or Shane Lowry. This would allow you to move up from Kirk or Bohn and give yourself a slightly higher chance of getting all six guys through the cut. Thus far, salary has not been indicative of cut %, but as the season progresses into some of the tougher courses, I think we will see that metric start to normalize. This is more of a preference than anything else...
Overall it looks good...5 years ago
I will draw up another lineup pivoting down to one of those guys, and see what I can work with for a balanced approach.5 years ago
I agree slightly on Jimmy Walker, he's usually a guy to target in Hawaii and Cali, but he's a great wind player and I think in GPP's he will have ownership around 5%. He hasn't played this tournament in a few years, but his current form is good enough for me to take a flyer on him.5 years ago
I went with a more balanced approach here. Thoughts on McDowell? Could go to Thomas or Berger as guys you mentioned above BJ.

I like that lineup alot Jason...
Im on the fence with McDowell, although I'm leaning towards him being a solid GPP play. He's basically the average salary so there is not much risk, and the course fits his skill set well. He lives in the area, but doesn't have much to show for in terms of previous course history. Ideally you want guys who've had success at PGA National, but with respect to his salary, I think it's a risk worth taking. He's played much better this year than he has in years past.5 years ago
