PGA Coure Preview

We have an exciting week of PGA DFS. Let us help you with this Course Preview for The Genesis Invitational 2022. We have superb-looking slates on DraftKings and FanDuel. This PGA DFS Picks Preview will highlight the course and provide information on the statistics you’ll need to focus on while using our PGA DFS Study Hub. So make sure to check out the PGA DFS Projections, Ownerships, and Ratings before you start to put together your lineups for DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft. They’re strong and allow you to focus on the PGA Core, Picks, and Content while building DFS Lineups.

Course Preview

After a short break in beautiful Arizona, we head back to California for the final swing of the West Coast before heading down to the swamp (Florida). This week we have a field of 119 players, including all top 10 golfers. Max Homa placed 14th last week at the WM Phoenix Open as he looks to defend his title this week at Genesis.

Riviera Country Club is 7,322 Yards, Par 71, played on POA Annua greens. The course has 58 sand bunkers, 0 water hazards, and a 2″ Kikuyu rough. In the last few years, we’ve had Max Homa win it at -12 (2021), Adam Scott at -11 (2020), and J.B. Holmes at -14. As you can tell, this isn’t going to be just a regular birdie fest event. The fairways here are not very wide, and you’ll see a lot of tree-lined holes. Scrambling and around the green play is also a key area I will be looking at because of the small greens and the frequent misses that are inevitable. Greens in Regulation here is averaged out to 10/18, so it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

  • Strokes Gained: Around The Green

Important Stats
PGA DFS FanDuel Targets

  • Justin Thomas ($11,900) – Hear me out, don’t fight me just yet. Yes, I still believe Rahm is the best in the field, but I think we might be approaching an old-school Justin Thomas. What do I mean by that? When he wins, he always wins by massive Approach & Tee To Green numbers, and what did he do last week? He gained 7 strokes on Approach and 13 strokes Tee To Green. MASSIVE NUMBERS. I think this JT is a tremendous leverage option in his price point as I think people will be playing either Rahm or Cantlay.
  • Brooks Koepka ($10,800) – Is it better to write about Brooks or just close your eyes and just play him? You never know what Brooks you’re going to get, but I am leaning that we’re going to get a top 10 Brooks this week. Sure, he doesn’t have a glowing course history that makes you want to play him, but what puts me on him is how well he performed last week. His recipe to success is usually high APP numbers followed by high Putting numbers and a sprinkle of OTT. And he did that last week at WM Phoenix Open. Brooks gained five strokes OTT, six strokes at Putting, and two at Approach.

PGA DFS DraftKings Targets

  • Sungjae Im ($8,600) – The above players are all based on leverage and game theory. This here, I feel like, is a no-brainer, and this man must be played. Let me retract – I will have high exposure on. Does that make it better? Anyway, Sungjae took the last two tournaments off, which is weird cause the man is a workhorse. But one thing that caught my eye is that he gained four strokes on the Putter, and as many of us know, Sungjae isn’t great at putting. If he can bring that same putting game and that same OTT game, I think we can possibly have a top 10 player.
  • Matt Fitzpatrick ($8,100) – Is there anything wrong to say about my boy Fitzy?! Over his last four events, he has gained over 27 total strokes. Now, he gets a price decrease after finishing 10th at Waste Management? Sign me up! Usually, his Putter is what brings him into contention, and lately, he hasn’t needed to gain 5-7 strokes on the Putter to be in contention. Recently, it’s been his Approach game. If he can bring that same game he’s been using over his last two events, he can possibly be in that top 10 this week.

PGA Dark Horse Target

  • Thomas Pieters ($9,200FD/$7,400DK) – WHO? Thomas Pieters mainly plays on the Euro Tour or “DP World Tour,” and he has been smashing it over there. Before the year ended, he won it at the Portgual Masters and then ended the year with a 15th place finish at DP World Tour Championship. Then immediately started 2022 with a win at Abu Dhabi. All of this happened in a span of five events. At $7400, I think his price tag is a steal for someone with significant upside and can also bring it in challenging events.

Study Hub

Each week our wizard CeeGee provides a massive Study Hub. What’s a Study Hub? A Study Hub is where you’ll find every player playing in the upcoming event. You’ll be able to see a player’s recent form, long-term form, course history, strokes gained off the tee, Approach, around the green, Putter, tee to green, total strokes gained, bogey avoidance, sand saves, and birdie rate.

Course Correlation Model

One of our most important models is our CC Model. The CC Model allows you to see what courses fit best compared to the actual course. In this sheet, you’ll be able to identify which player is suited best for the course based on course rank.

Important Rankings

Every week I post an article on Mondays (what you’re currently reading), giving you a course preview on what’s in store for the week. I also provide the top five most important stats that you should be using. That’s when this model comes into play. Each important stat is based on the PGA Tour Rankings. Lastly, I provide a final ranking making it easy on who is highly ranked.

Cash, GPP, Core Picks

On Wednesday nights, the Study Hub is updated once more, and it’s with my personal picks. All are categorized on which player I like and in what format. For example, cash/GPP are self-explanatory, while my core picks are my lock plays. Also, my Risers are my most confident picks. So there’s a difference between a regular GPP play and a Riser/GPP play.

Showdown Content

This sheet contains picks, stats, building blocks, and weather. I update this sheet Friday-Sunday and provide you with all the stats I can get my hands on. For those who don’t have enough time and aren’t a data junkie like myself, then the picks/building blocks will guide you to your cash or GPP builds.

Consistency vs. Trends

This model consists of Consistency/Baseline vs. Trend. The Consistency is measured over the last 12 months on a player’s performance. Look at it as a player average in baseball; .250 avg. And a Trend is how the player has been performing in the last 16 rounds or the last four events. This could be seen as if a player has been “hot” or “cold.” And in theory, this helps us determine who is performing well vs. underperforming. Every week I’ll be updating this model based on my weeklong picks.

Putting Data

This model is to guide you on how each player performs on a specific surface. So, one week we could have Poa stats, and the other week Bermuda greens. These strokes are currently being measured from the start of the 2021 season to the present.
