Course Preview

This will be the last week of the Las Vegas swing as we head to the Summit Club for the CJ Cup. The field is heavily stacked with top players. Still, we’ll only have 78 golfers on the field as we’ll have defending champion Jason Kokrak and notables like Tyrrell Hatton, Viktor Hovland, Jordan Spieth, and Rory McIlroy playing at this no-cut event for a shot at this fantastic trophy.

Summit Club is a par 72, 7400 yards played on Bentgrass Greens. Tom Fazio designed the course in 2017 as it has 62 sand bunkers and seven holes with water in play. The rough is 3″ mixed with bermudagrass and ryegrass, so although the rough won’t be the primary concern, the course will. The Summit Club sits at an elevation that allows balls to fly further off the tee. Not only that – the course has a lot of uphill and downhill shots, so I would focus on guys who excel in Ball Striking. I will be using a ton of Tom Fazio courses as my course comparison model since this course is very similar to his other ones: ┬áCongaree Golf Club, Conway Farms, Quail Hollow, Shadow Creek, and more. As a reminder, data this week is limited as this will be the first time we’ll be playing here. I also added a short flyover at what we should be expecting.

PGA DFS FanDuel Targets

  • Dustin Johnson ($12,000) – Yep, the most expensive golfer. But how can you blame me? DJ went 5-0 at the Ryder Cup. He closed out the year really strong at the Ryder Cup, and prior to that, he placed 8th at the TOUR Championship and 6th at the BMW Championship. Over his last 36 rounds, DJ is ranked 1st in Putting, 14th Off The Tee, 29th in Ball Striking, and 38th Tee To Green. Although his stats aren’t anything to write home about I have to say I very much liked his performance at the Ryder Cup and see him bring that A game to the CJ Cup.

PGA DFS DraftKings Targets

  • Sam Burns ($9,800) – At this rate, I don’t know if I”m sick or something, but I find no reason why you can’t play Sam Burns at this event. If he didn’t lose 2.5 strokes on the putter in round 4 at Shriners, he probably would’ve finished top 5. But let’s not take away that he gained over seven total strokes at Shriners. In his last six events, he’s placed 2nd, 21st, 8th, 18th, 1st, and 14th. Lastly, on the Rise or Fall Important Stats Model – Burns is ranked 2nd T2G, 7th Off The Tee, 7th in Ball Striking, 11th in Putting, and 17th at Approach.

PGA DFS SuperDraft Targets

  • Louis Oosthuizen (1.15X) – I don’t know if you noticed, but Oosty placed 14th last week at Shriners. He kind of just snuck in there. And he probably would’ve finished top 10 had he not lost two strokes at putting, which is very rare for Oosty to do. On the Rise or Fall Important Stats Model – Oosty is ranked 6th Tee To Green, 7th at Approach, 11th in Ball Striking, 12th Around The Green, and 23rd in Putting in his last 24 rounds.

PGA Dark Horse Target

  • Aaron Wise ($8,900 FD/$7,400DK) – I think if Wise hadn’t lost so many strokes at APP/BS in the 3rd round of Shriners, he would’ve probably even won the event. However, he did finish top 10. Over his last four events, Wise has placed 8th, 26th, 17th, and 21st. At least half of these events have been at challenging courses too. If we take a closer look at those four events played over 16 rounds, he’s ranked 2nd Tee To Green, 4th Around The Green, 10th Off The Tee, and 17th in Ball Striking.

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. I try to stay anywhere from 93% to 80% in similarity. Once you access our sheets, you’ll notice all the courses similar to The Genesis Invitational from left to right and how each player has an individual rank and, lastly, a final rank. In this sheet, you’ll be able to identify which player is suited best for the course based on course similarity.

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 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 2020 season to the present.Study Hub DFS Projections
