PGA DFS Lineup Advice for the PGA Championship 2022

Last week, our PGA DFS adventures brought us to the AT&T Byron Nelson. I built two different lineups that I shared on Twitter. One was DraftKings based and the other was on FanDuel. The FanDuel lineup felt strong to me, but there were some surprising cuts. I didn’t expect Sam Burns to be cut and he was. My value pick, Sigg, was cut. along with my longshot, club member, Kang. That only left me with 3 players (Scheffler, Thomas, McNealy) and that’s not going to cut it. My DraftKings lineup fared much better and I ended up winning a 3-person head-to-head. Again, Kang was eliminated, but I won with Kizzire, McNealy, Scheffler, Theegala, and Thomas. I love to win!

It’s supposed to be quite windy this week at Southern Hills Country Club in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I’m reading that the early wave of players on Thursday and Friday will likely get the best weather, but I’m not a meteorologist. The PGA Championship was last played here in 2007. The course had a major renovation that was completed in 2019. They’ve not hosted a major in 15 years. This means that previous course experience isn’t necessarily important here, although there’s something to be said for players who are hungry to win a PGA Championship, and who have fallen short in prior years.

Within the top 3 on FanDuel, you’ll find Scottie Scheffler, John Rahm, and Rory McIlroy. On DraftKings, you’ll see Rahm, Thomas, and Morikawa. Do with that what you will!

For my research, I utilize a variety of resources, but my main resource is the premium content provided exclusively to Team Rise or Fall subscribers in our PGA Study Hub. It’s free for everyone to use today (Tuesday) and tomorrow (Wednesday 5/18). If you love it… use my promo code KIP to receive $10 off your first month of membership. You’ll also receive a $20 voucher to Fantasy Cruncher every single month, where you can populate your PGA DFS lineup in a snap!

I made a video this morning, showing how I typically utilize the Study Hub in order to give you the best PGA DFS Lineup Advice for the PGA Championship:


DFS Picks $10,000 – $12,000

Scottie Scheffler ($12,000 on FD and $11,400 on DK)

Scottie Scheffler is still currently ranked the number one player in the world and I’m still on him again this week. This season, he’s ranking 2nd in Birdies and while he wasn’t at his best last week, he was still an excellent player on DFS rosters. He ranks 6th in Strokes Gain and 4th in Greens In Regulation. It has to be mentioned that Southern Hills Country Club is also known to be Scottie’s favorite course to play.

Patrick Cantlay ($11,200 on FD and $9,500 on DK)

Cantlay has taken about a month off and hasn’t played since the RBC Heritage, where he lost to Spieth in a playoff. In the Zurich Classic team event, he won and set the course record with his partner, Xander Schauffele. He’s made 7 of 8 cuts this year and is averaging around 96 PPG on FanDuel. Cantlay is looking like a popular pick for lineups right now, with 22% of DK players and 23% of Fanduel players rostering him.

DFS Picks $8,000 – $10,000

Harold Varner III ($8,800 on FD and $7,800 on DK)

Varner might be playing the best golf of his life, finishing 23rd or better in each of his last four starts. Not to mention tying for 5th in the Zurich Classic team event and 3rd at the RBC Heritage. This guy is due and I’m here for it! In this particular field of players, he ranks 5th in his Approach, Strokes Gained. What worries me a little bit is his Driving Accuracy, but if he can continue to make up for it on the approach, we’ll be in good shape.

Corey Conners ($9,800 on FD and $8,100 on DK)

Corey Conners has been consistent since really, the beginning of March. He has four top-25 finishes, plus a 3rd place finish at the WGC Match Play. His 35th place finish at the Texas Open was his lowest finish during this period of time and that’s a finish that most players on the PGA tour would yearn for! I expect him to land in the top-20, if not the top-10.

DFS Picks $6,000 – $8,000

JJ Spaun ($7,800 on FD and $6,900 on DK)

I picked Spaun as my winner for the Valero Texas Open and I’ve been fairly high on him ever since. This week, however, it’s more than just being high on a player. I think he’s poised to really do well this week. In his last five starts, he’s made the cut four times. He’s averaging -8 under per round in his last five starts. He can do this and he’s a great value in my eyes.

Other Players on my Radar: 

Tony Finau

Hideki Matsuyama

Obviously… I’m thinking about Jordan Spieth, but he’s so pricey, that I might not be able to make it work. Perhaps I’ll make an additional lineup with him as my captain, rather than Scheffler?

Closing Words

I cannot believe that we’re closing in on the end of May! This year has just flown by. On Thursday, I’m flying out to Kentucky to celebrate my grandmother’s 99th birthday. This might be the last time I get to spend time with her, so you can be sure I’ll be focused in on family time. I hope that you can also spend some time with your loved ones this week. There’s nothing more important than making sure that the people you love, know it. xo

I hope that I helped you out a bit with my best PGA DFS Lineup Advice for the PGA Championship. See you next week!
