What an awesome tournament to watch last week! So much drama and excitement all at once!! After Friday, thanks to Finau, the 6/6 % was around 15% and it looked as though Dufner was going to run away with the title. After Saturday, that wasn't the case. He let everyone back and there were a few guys fighting for the lead. However, at the end, Dufner carded a nice 68 to win by 3! For DraftKings, I had just 3/15 golfers missing the cut and I was 4/10 for h2hs and 1/5 for GPPs. Overall, a solid week for me, just didn't have enough Fowler and Kuchar. Congrats to The Duf on winning The Memorial!
We are headed to Memphis, TN for the FedEx St. Jude Classic. We are one week away from the U.S. Open and a lot of players will use this as a tune up for next week. The course for this week is called TPC Southwind. It's a Par 70 and 7,244 yards long. The stats that I'm looking for this week, are G.I.R.; B.O.B.%; Prox.
Billy Horschel ($9,500) – Horschel has probably one of the better course history record in the field. He didn't play last year, however, in the 3 years before, he finished in the top 10 in all 3 starts. For his stats, he's 3rd in the field for G.I.R. (10th); 53rd in the field for B.O.B.% (107th); and 41st in the field for Proximity (70th). With a win at the Bryon Nelson, he seems to be more at eased now than ever and he should be a fine play for both cash and gpp.
Scott Piercy ($8,500) – Piercy is getting into form and I look forward to watching him play this week, because I believe he will be a nice dark horse for next week. For stats, he's 6th in the field for Proximity; 4th in the field for B.O.B.% (8th); and 27th in the field for G.I.R. (54th). In his last 4 starts, he made 2 cuts and finished inside the top 20 in both events.
Kyle Stanley ($8,400) – We are going back to Stanley this week. He has one of the best ball striking stats in the field. He's 1st in the field for G.I.R. (2nd); 2nd in the field for Proximity (3rd); and 13th in the field for B.O.B.% (26th). In his last 3 starts, he has made 2 cuts and finished inside the top 10 in both of them. He has played here 4 times and made the cut in 2 attempts. Look for him to be in both of my cash and gpp lineup this week.
Stewart Cink ($8,000) – As you can see with the prices, I'm definitely going more balance this week. For Cink, he is finally getting into form. He's 4th in the field for G.I.R. (12th); 17th in the field for B.O.B.% (33rd); and 17th in the field for Proximity (39th). He has made his last 2 cuts and has played here in the last 3 years and has made the cut in all 3 attempts.
For this week, because of the odd pricing, I would cut back on your bankroll. For exposure, I will go around 40% for all 4 golfers. If you like to play the 3 entry max, I would choose up to 8-10 golfers and rotate them around with your 4 main players. For multi entry, I like to choose around 20-25 golfers in total. Have your 4 main guys to be at the highest exposed and work your way down. That way, if your core hits, then you will have a really good chance of having a really nice payday! Which, at the end of the day, is what we're all trying to achieve!
Good luck everyone!
