Daily Fantasy Golf Strategy: THE PLAYERS Championship

THE PLAYERS Championship is here to YELL at YOU this WEEK. The PGA would like you to believe this is the FIFTH MAJOR. It’s a good field, but there are only four majors. Let’s get to it!

Our friends at DraftKings continue to roll out some fantastic contests. And I’m here to help you win some dough.

It’s a great week to check out DraftKings as they have some top notch contests.

Come on over and take a look.

Tour Stop

This week we head tee it up for the THE PLAYERS Championship at The Stadium Course at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, Florida just outside of Jacksonville. The Stadium Course is a 7,215 yard par 72 course with the shortest hole (the 17th at 137 yards) offering a chance for everyone to go swimming.

The course was built in 1980 with the idea this would be the permanent home of THE PLAYERS Championship. The tournament switched to the May date (from March) after the 2007 renovation so any stats prior to 2007 aren’t as useful.

The weather looks to be pleasant with temps in the upper 80s, a hint of wind and no rain. As always, continue to check up until lineup lock on Thursday.

Scorecard breakdown: Four (4) par threes, ten (10) par fours and four (4) par fives making up the par-72.

Field

It’s one of the better fields we’ll see outside of the majors though it does get a little thin at the bottom.

The full field can be found here.

Statistical Review

Let’s take a look at the statistical angles in for this week’s tournament.

Good Drive Percentage (GDP) is defined as the “The percent of time a player hit a good drive. On Par 4 and Par 5’s, the number of fairways hit, + the # of Greens or fringe in regulation when the drive was not in the fairway on the tee shot. / by the number of par 4 and par 5’s played.” So, we want golfers who stay out of trouble and this stat should help us identify them.

Par 5 Efficiency 500-500 yards (P5E500-550): You have to be solid at one of the two key par 5 distances.
Par 5 Efficiency 550-600 yards (P5E550-600): The other two par 5s are between 550 and 600 yards.
Par 4 Efficiency 400-450yards (P4E450-500):  Four of the par 4s fall within this distance.
Par 4 Efficiency 450-500yards (P4E450-500):  There are only three par fives in this distance, but the toughest scoring holes in in this collection.

Scrambling: Now, scrambling doesn’t solve all of your issues as you can’t scramble out of the water and there is a lot of water on the course. But, there will be trouble (it’s a Dye course) so we want golfers to get out of it.

Pete Dye Course Experience: It’s my tiebreaker on the week. Even though all Dye courses aren’t created equal, there are similarities that he winds through every track.

I’m focused on 2016 stats now, but still check on 2015 stats to get a larger sample size on players.

And each week, we’ll look at Strokes Gained: Putting (SG:P) and Strokes Gained: Tee to Green (SG:T2G) with SG:T2G being more important this week.

DraftKings Expert Picks

Rory McIlroy | $11,700 – Rory missed the cut in his first three PLAYERS starts and then took off with T8, T6 and T8 in the last three years. My concern with Rory this week has to do with his in round consistency where he’s been prone to wild shots that he may not able to recover from this week. He has three top 10s in his last four stroke play events on Tour so it’s tough to fade him.

Jordan Spieth | $11,400 – I prefer Spieth to Rory this week if only he’s $300 cheaper. The young American’s first start here two years ago ended with a T4. He promptly missed the cut last year. It’s his first start back after his struggles at the Masters on Sunday so if you’re worried about his mental state, then stay away. I’m not concerned.

Jason Day | $11,100 – This isn’t the type of course I’d favor Day on and his results show that he may struggle again this week. He’s two for five in cuts made, but has a T6 and T19. So, if you can pick when he’ll putt well enough to offset his struggles off the tee then you are golden.  He can’t be a cash game consideration.

Rickie Fowler | $10,600 – The defending champ at THE PLAYERS hasn’t finished in the top 20 in the following year since Fred Funk in 2005.  So, that doesn’t seem great for Fowler’s hopes this week. However, he’s the best player based on the stats I’m looking at this week so he’ll need to be rostered just in case he breaks the winner’s curse.

Justin Rose | $10,300 – Rose’s record at THE PLAYERS is poor for a player of his caliber. The English man is just six for 12 in cuts made with one top 10 (T4 in 2014). Rose’s putter has been the issue this year and he hasn’t been great on par 4s in either distance (118th in P4E400-450and 114th in P4E450-500).

Dustin Johnson | $10,200 – Won’t have any DJ this week. Wayward bombers aren’t for me. His best finish here in seven starts is a T34.

Adam Scott | $10,000 – Scott’s putting has fallen off in recent weeks after a hot start and that concerns me this week as he’ll need all of the strokes he can gain. The Aussie is 11 of 14 in cuts made with three top 10s at TPC Sawgrass. The last of those three top 10s was in 2007 however. He rates second in my statistical model this week so he’ll be rostered, but won’t be part of my core.

Sergio Garcia | $9,900 – The free space this week? He’s finished in the top 10 each of the last three years. The Spaniard has six top 10s overall in 14 starts including a win in 2009. His last start was three weeks ago at his Foundation’s tournament in Spain where he ended up third.

Do not be afraid to use Señor Espacio Libre!

Hideki Matsuyama | $9,700 – Matsuyama has two top 25s in two starts at TPC Sawgrass. He’s finished in the top 11 in his last three stroke play events. His sixth in my stats model. Signs all point to an excellent result this week.

Henrik Stenson | $9,500 – No driver means Stenson will deliver (a T4 probably, but hey). He’s eight of 10 in cuts made with four top 10s (including a win). His recent history T15, T5, T34 and T17 (last year) is solid. The profile fits even if he doesn’t scramble well. But, when you hit a hybrid off the tee on every hole you don’t need to scramble much.

Bubba Watson | $9,300 – An interesting contrarian roster play might be to pair Bubba with Brooks in the bombers who MIGHT succeed here based on what we’ve seen in prior rounds. Bubba hasn’t been in the top 35 in eight trips to TPC Sawgrass. But, he’s third in GDP this year so perhaps he won’t have to worry about so many off-target drives.

Phil Mickelson | $9,100 – Lefty won here in 2007, his last finish inside the top 15 at TPC Sawgrass. He’s missed the cut in each of the last three years. He’s 169th in GDP, but ninth in scrambling. So, if he can keep the ball out of the water (not an easy task), Phil could surprise this week. His last four events on Tour have ended T13, MC, MC and T4.

Danny Willett | $8,900 – Willett is relatively long off the tee, but not so long as to fade him this week However, his accuracy leaves a bit to be desired. Those wayward drives are mitigated by excellent scrambling. He debuts here and it’s his first start anywhere since winning the Masters.

Patrick Reed | $8,700 – Reed finished T24 here last year which is surprising given how he sprays his tee balls all over the course. He’s an excellent scrambler so that can make up for those issues. He’s an option in GPPs only, but I won’t have a lot of him.

Branden Grace | $8,600 – Grace could be pretty chalky this week and for good reason. He won at the RBC Heritage this year after debuting with a T7 in 2015 so he’s got a hold of one Pete Dye course. He’s finished in the top 10 in back to back Tour events so the current form box is checked. The South African has two starts at the PLAYERS with a T48 and T42 so he hasn’t done much….yet. I like him to challenge for a top 10 this week.

Louis Oosthuizen | $8,400 – I don’t see anything to recommend Oosty this week.

Zach Johnson | $8,300 – Johnson is 10 of 11 in cuts made with two top 10s and five top 20s. His current form is a bit off with a missed cut and two results outside of the top 25 in his last three starts, but he’s always been able to right the ship when TPC Sawgrass shows up on the calendar.

Billy Horschel | $8,200 – Horschel’s last missed cut on Tour was at the CareerBuilder which uses another Dye Stadium course in the rotation. He’s made back to back cuts at THE PLAYERS. He’s not much of a scrambler (174th this year), but is an elite par 4 scorer at P4E400-450 (second).

Matt Kuchar | $8,100 – Kuchar is another Dye specialist (especially when it comes to the RBC Heritage). He missed the cut here last year, but has made seven of 11 cuts overall with a win in 2012 and four other top 20 finishes. The statistical profile lines up for another successful run at TPC Sawgrass.

Brandt Snedeker | $8,100 – Snedeker has only made three of eight cuts at THE PLAYERS, but he has gotten better lately making two of his last four. He’s 14th in scrambling and can score on par 4s (17th in P4E400-450 and 44th in P4E450-500). I don’t think he’ll be highly owned with Walker, Berger and Kuchar around so he’s a contrarian option whose last missed cut was at another Dye Course (Harbour Town and the RBC Heritage).

Jimmy Walker | $8,000 – Walker has made four of six in cuts at THE PLAYERS with two top 20s in the last three years. His profile looks great when looking at the scoring efficiency stats, but he’s 154th in GDP and 135th in scrambling which could affect his ability to score this week. He missed the cut at the Valero in his last PGA Tour start.

Daniel Berger | $8,000 – It’s hard to pass up Berger’s form (four straight top 20 finishes coming in), but his 110th standing in GDP paired with a 108th spot in scrambling puts the brakes on an all-out lovefest for Berger. The rest of his profile looks great so perhaps we’ll just ignore those warts. He missed the cut in his debut here last year, but did finish T8 here at the 2010 Junior PLAYERS Championship.

Charley Hoffman | $7,900 – Hoffman is playing the role of cut-maker this week (seven of nine in cuts made with a top finish of T22) and he’s got three straight top 15s including  T14 at the RBC Heritage (another Dye course). He’s 32nd SG:T2G and 14th in P4E400-450, but that’s all we can hang our statistical analysis on this week.

Paul Casey | $7,900 – Casey is 18th in SG:T2G this year and has elite scoring levels in P5E550-600 (19th) and P4E400-450 (sixth). He’s only two for nine in cuts made here and he’s withdrawn the last two times he’s played here.

Kevin Na | $7,800 – Na is another golfer who I think should be heavily owned, but I’m not sure he will be. He’s made three cuts in a row at THE PLAYERS with two top 10s. He’s in the top 20 in both of the par 4 distances we’re focused on this week. Oh, his last start was at the RBC Heritage (a Dye course) where he finished T4.

Chris Kirk | $7,800 – Form player in excellent form and has solid course history? Sign me up eight days a week. He’s made three straight cuts and was T5 two weeks ago at the Zurich Classic. He’s finished in the top 15 in back to back years at TPC Sawgrass.

Kevin Kisner | $7,700 – Kisner’s T2 last year was in the midst of quite the hot streak for Kisner. He’s not riding that form this year. In fact he has almost no form as he hasn’t seen the top 20 since the Sony Open early in 2016. He’s still a good driver (49th in GDP) and can score on a couple of the key distances (14th in P5E550-600 and 34th in P4E400-450) that we like this week. However, I wouldn’t go in expecting another T2.

Brooks Koepka | $7,700 – As I noted with Bubba, Brooks makes an interesting play as a bomber who can succeed at TPC Sawgrass. He missed the cut last year in his debut but shot 78-67 and that include back to back quadruple bogeys. I like him in GPPs this week.

Kevin Chappell | $7,600 – Chappell has the profile to succeed here (19th in SG:T2G, 39th in scrambling, 36th in P5E550-600, and 44th in P4E450-500) but, it hasn’t shown in the results. He’s finished in the top 30 once in five trips though he has made three straight cuts on Tour and including two top 10s with a T9 at the RBC Heritage.

Russell Knox | $7,600 – This is the type of course that Knox can destroy. He debuted with a T34 at THE PLAYERS two years ago and followed with a T17 last year. His last start was at the RBC Heritage where he finished T2. Roster him with confidence.

Bill Haas | $7,500 – Haas is five of nine in cuts made at THE PLAYERS, but three of his last four. Those last three weekends have ended with two top 25s including a T4 last year. He missed the cut at the Wells Fargo, but did finish T14 at the RBC Heritage.

Danny Lee | $7,500 – Lee hasn’t had any success at the RBC (missing the cut twice and T60 in three starts). He can score on a couple of the key distances (third in P5E500-550 and 20th in P4E450-500, but there isn’t a lot else to recommend. He’s made two cuts in a row and three of his last four.

J.B. Holmes | $7,400 – This is a bomber in the Bubba/Brooks mold in that he could do something from this week. He has four top 20s in nine starts at THE PLAYERS.  He hasn’t missed a cut since the British Open last year.

Byeong-Hun An | $7,400 – An played here in 2009 as an amateur at the Junior PLAYERS Championship and finished T19 for what that’s worth. It’s his PGA Tour debut at this course and can score (seventh in P5E500-550, 64th in P5E550-600, and 69th in P4E400-450). However, he’s a bit wild off the tee so I’ll probably pass on An.

Marc Leishman | $7,300 – Leishman’s profile looks nearly perfect for this course. He’s made four of six cuts at THE PLAYERS and those four cuts have all been in the last four years with three straight top 25s. The Aussie has made back to back cuts on Tour coming in.

Patton Kizzire | $7,300 – GPP only for me this week as he’s probably too wild off the tee to make it work at THE PLAYER. However, if he can just keep a couple of those drives in play he can score on just about every distance we care about this week.

Martin Kaymer | $7,200 – It’s all about course history for Kaymer. He’s made seven of seven cuts at TPC Sawgrass with a win in 2014. His current form isn’t terribly great as his T6 at Sergio’s event in Spain a couple of weeks ago is his only top 10 this year. I imagine he’ll be more owned than he should be.

Justin Thomas | $7,200 – T24 in his debut here last year so that’s intriguing. Poor form which is less intriguing. I’m going to fade him this week.

Rafa Cabrera Bello | $7,100 – RCB’s work this year has been excellent with only one finish outside of the top 20 in nine events worldwide. It’s tough to ignore that type of form especially at this low a price point.

Russell Henley | $7,100 – Henley looks like he’s recovered from the flat spin that was the start of 2016. He’s made three of four cuts on Tour including a T23 at Harbour Town. He’s also finished in the top 25 in his last two PLAYERS starts. It’s amazing, but I think he’s actual a safe play this week.

Jamie Lovemark | $7,000 – Lovemark debuts this week at THE PLAYERS with a statistical profile that fits very nicely especially in the scoring efficiency categories. He’s 118th in GDP, but sixth in scrambling so as long as he stays out of the water he could do well.

Gary Woodland | $7,000 – Woodland is the bomber who did succeed once here (T11) in his four starts. He’s made three straight cuts on Tour and has only missed one all year. As a bomber, he’s likely to be ignored, but he’s done well here previously.

Brendan Steele | $7,000 – Back to back top 15s on Tour coming in is overshadowed by his poor record here. Perhaps he’s seen the course enough to figure it out, but I’m not holding out hope.

David Lingmerth | $7,000 –The Swede has had some excellent results at Pete Dye courses (T12 at Whistling Straits for the PGA Championship, T2 at the CareerBuilder this year). The profile doesn’t fit, but he did finish T2 in his debut in 2013.

Jim Furyk | $6,900 – Not yet.

Luke Donald | $6,900 – Great scrambler (eighth) and does well on par 4s (50th in P4E400-450and 47th in P4E450-500). He’s nine for 13 in cuts made with three top 10s (last one in 2012). Since 2012 he’s finished T19, T38 and missed cut at THE PLAYERS.

John Senden | $6,800 – Senden is seven for 13 in cuts made THE PLAYERS, but he’s made three straight cuts including his first top 10 last year (T8). The Aussie has back to back top 20 finishes on Tour and three of his last four events have had him in the top 25. His par 5 acumen (62nd in P5E500-550 and 22nd in P5E550-600) will serve him well this week.

Andy Sullivan | $6,800 – Sully is an accurate driver of the ball so he’ll have a chance this week if he can score. He missed the cut at his last PGA Tour event (the Masters).

Smylie Kaufman | $6,800 – Smylie’s struggles off the tee give me pause even if his scoring efficiency stats say he’ll be excellent. He played well at the CareerBuilder (T14) which has another Dye Stadium course and comes in off a missed cut at the Zurich Classic.

Charles Howell III | $6,700 – Certainly is cheap, but I won’t be using him this week. The profile looks good, but he’s never had any success. In 14 starts at THE PLAYERS his best finish is a T32 in 2003. That’s his only finish in the top 50 in those 14 starts.

Francesco Molinari | $6,700 – The Italian has made four cuts in a row with two top 20s so the form is coming around.  He’s made two of five cuts at THE PLAYERS, but those two weekends ended in top 10s. He’s going to have to run rampant on the par 5s (27th in P5E500-550 and 62nd in P5E550-600) to succeed again.

Jason Dufner | $6,700 – Dufner won the CareerBuilder (which uses a Dye course) to get back in the saddle on Dye courses. He’s only finished in the top 30 once in seven starts at TPC Sawgrass, but he’s 31st in GDP, 36th in SG:T2G, and 24th in P4E400-450 so he could surprise.

Emiliano Grillo | $6,700 – Grillo has only missed one cut in nine stroke play events this year. The profile has enough to get excited about for the week (79th in SGT2G, 21st in GDP, 187th in Scrambling, 108th inP5E500-550, 44th inP5E550-600, 66th in P4E400-450, and 60th in P4E450-500). The Argentine is also another golfer who has played here as an amateur. He finished T2 (with Jordan Spieth) in the 2010 JUNIOR PLAYERS Championship and won the 2015 Web.com Tour Championship which is held at the Dye’s Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass.

Soren Kjeldsen | $6,600 – This is a bit of a Hail Mary based on his European statistical profile. The Dane was 41st in scrambling and 28th in driving accuracy on the European Tour last year. He’s put up back to back top 10s including a T7 at the Masters. He will be extremely low-owned.

Chez Reavie | $6,400 – Reavie is seventh in GDP and fifth in scrambling which is nice. He’s never done well here and perhaps it’s because he doesn’t stand out in any of the scoring efficiency stats. But, he’s done well at the other course in the complex (Valley Course) where he’s finished second and T25 in the last two Web.com Tour Championships. He’s missed back to back cuts coming in, but was T33 at the RBC Heritage and T17 at the CareerBuilder this year which are both on Dye courses.

William McGirt | $6,400 – McGirt looks like Kevin Na. At least when you put their 2016 statistical profile side by side. However, McGirt has never done well here making only one of three cuts with a top finish of T43 (three years ago). However, he was T9 at the RBC Heritage earlier this year (Dye course) as he embarked on the first of three weekends coming into THE PLAYERS.

Jhonattan Vegas | $6,300 – Vegas is two for three in cuts made at THE PLAYERS with a T7 in 2012. He can score from all of the key distances we’re focused on this week, but he’s 61st in GDP and 96th in Scrambling. The Colombian Venezuelan has made five of his last six cuts on Tour.

Webb Simpson | $6,300 – Withdrew.

Ben Martin | $6,300 – Martin debuted with a T4 here last year, but I’m not sure he can repeat that result this week. He’s 100th in GDP and 167th in scrambling which could doom him. He’s a top 20 scorer on the longer par 5s this year which is his only redeeming quality.

Patrick Rodgers | $6,300 – It’s Rodgers’ first start at THE PLAYERS, but it’s not the first time he’s competed on this course. He teed it up for the Junior PLAYERS Championship in 2009 and 2010 and finished in the top 10 both times. His current form is poor having missed three of four cuts, but he has a solid profile for the course (46th in SGT2G, 178th in SG:P, 33rd in GDP, 92nd in scrambling, 87th in P5E500-550, 27th in P5E550-600,  56th in P4E400-450, and 72nd in P4E450-500).

K.J. Choi | $6,200 – Choi won here in 2011 (his only top 10 in 14 starts) and was T13 two years ago. His value is generally as a cut maker and he’s an excellent option this week for someone looking for safety.

Sean O’Hair | $6,200 – O’Hair’s par 4 scoring efficiency (26th in P4E400-450 and 38th in P4E450-500) intrigues me as a deeper player in larger pools this week.

David Hearn | $6,100 –Hearn is four for four in cuts made at THE PLAYERS which is excellent value this far down the list. We can see why when we look at his profile (ninth in GDP and 55th in Scrambling). He’s made two of his last four cuts on Tour with two top 20s. But, one of those misses was at the RBC Heritage.

Robert Streb | $6,100 – Is this the start of Streb finding his 2015 form? He’s made back to back cuts with a T36 and T28. He was T30 here last year. I don’t think too many will be on him, but he’s worth the risk in a lineup or two.

Chesson Hadley | $6,100 – It’s all about Pete Dye course history for Hadley as he finished T24 last year and won the 2013 Web.com Tour Championship at another Dye course in this complex. He has back to back top 20 finishes on Tour coming in to the event. The profile doesn’t work for this week.

George McNeill | $6,000 – McNeill has back to back top 20s at THE PLAYERS and has made three cuts in his last four starts at TPC Sawgrass. His form is….interesting as he’s been DQ’d twice in his last six events, missed the cut in two others and finished T72 and T39. That T39 was at the RBC Heritage.

Fabian Gomez | $6,000 – Another cheap option who is accurate off the tee (56th in GDP) and  a solid scoring profile (54th in P5E500-550, 32nd in P5E550-600, 96th in P4E400-450, and 23rd in P4E450-500). This is his first start at THE PLAYERS and has made two cuts in a row including a T45 at the RBC Heritage.

Bernhard Langer | $5,800 – Feel the Bern! His worst finish on the Champions Tour in six starts this year is a T11. He finished T24 at the Masters. If you want a guy who has a better than average shot to make the cut, Bern is your man. He’s only played here once in the last seven years and that was his missed cut last year.

Chris Stroud | $5,800 – Stroud is five for six in cuts made at THE PLAYERS. His stats don’t line up well (but few do down here) though he is 58th place standing in P5E500-550and 39th in P4E450-500. His form is solid as he’s made six cuts in a row and did have back to back top 15s at THE PLAYERS in 2009 and 2010.

Si Woo Kim | $5,800 –Kim debuts here this week, but has a T14 at the RBC Heritage already this year. He’s struggled since then in his last three events, but you aren’t paying much for a solid profile.

Jerry Kelly | $5,700 – Some more old man value as he’s fifth in GDP and second in scrambling so he should be able to stay out of trouble all week long. It’s probably not enough to challenge the leaders even though he was T17 last year. He’s 11 for 20 overall in cuts made at THE PLAYERS with two top 10s.

Jason Bohn | $5,700 – Not yet.

Scott Brown | $5,700 – Brown’s results keep improving year over year. He’s gone missed cut, T62 and T30 in the last three years. The stats do not look kindly on Brown this week and he’s in poor form. Perhaps his course experience will help him continue improving.

Brian Stuard | $5,700 – Stuard had a T17 here two years ago sandwiched around missed cuts. The recent winner is seventh in SG:P, 47th in GDP and fourth in scrambling. He’s also one of the better players on Dye courses so don’t ignore him this week in stars/scrubs setups.

Chad Campbell | $5,600 – Oddly, Campbell’s profile seems to fit the course. He’s six for 11 in weekends at THE PLAYERS and did have a couple of top 10 finishes nearly a decade ago. He has no form coming in, but did finish T23 at the RBC Heritage this year.

Brendon Todd | $5,400 – He can’t miss cuts ALL the time?

Steven Bowditch | $5,300 – Nah.

Good luck this week! Head over to DraftKings to choose your squad for this week.

Scoring Notes: Ties for a finishing position will not reduce or average down points. For example, if 2 golfers tie for 3rd place, each will receive the 18 fantasy points for the 3rd place finish result. Playoff Holes will not count towards final scoring, with the exception of the “finishing position” scoring. For example, the golfer who wins the tournament will receive the sole award of 1st place points, but will not accrue points for their scoring result in the individual playoff holes.

Player Lock Notes: All golfers lock at the time the first golfer tees off on day 1 of an event.
