PGA DFS: Picks Preview for The Palmetto Championship 2021 on DraftKings, FanDuel, SuperDraft

We have an exciting week of PGA DFS with superb-looking slates on DraftKings, FanDuel, and SuperDraft. 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. 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.

We have started premium members-only lineup building videos and streams for MMA DFS, NASCAR DFS, PGA DFS, and of course – MLB DFS!

Course Preview

Usually, around this time of the year, we head over to our neighbors to the north for the RBC Canadian Open, but due to COVID, we’ll stay in the good old USA in South Carolina for the Palmetto Championship at Congaree. From what I can gather with the limited information we have on this course, the course does have ten holes with water and play, and Tom Fazio designed it in 2017.

Congaree Golf Club is a par 71 measuring about 7,650 yards played on Bermuda Greens. There are four par 3’s, eleven Par 4’s, and three par 5’s on the course. Just from the scorecard itself, I want to say that the 3rd and 15th holes are probably the easiest as they’re par 4’s sitting at 360 yards. While the 6th, 8th, and 9th holes are probably the most challenging holes as they’re all par 4’s well above 500 yards.

Fairways are vastly wide with very little rough to be concerned about off the tee. However, the greens are tiny as the average size is 6150 sq feet. But honestly, this course seems more along the lines of bomb and gouge. The course is built to play firm and fast, similar to sandbelt courses in Australia. So let’s have some fun before the U.S. Open.

  • P4: 500+

PGA DFS FanDuel Targets

  • Matthew Fitzpatrick ($11,700) Fitzy! I know, I know. He just missed the cut last week at Memorial and probably devastated your lines. But I’m a massive fan of Fitzy on Bermuda greens, and although this course is long, I still think Fitz should perform very well here. He is the total package – on the Rise or Fall Important Stats Model, he is ranked 14th OTT, 15th in Driving Accuracy, 19th in Putting, 26th in Birdies, 35th T2G, and 39th ARG.
  • Garrick Higgo ($10,200) So this is the week to get wild and try some things out as we see how weak the field is. That doesn’t necessarily mean that Higgo is a lousy play. It’s just risky. BUT…Higgo’s last four events at the European Tour are 1st, 8th, 1st, and 4th. Lastly, Higgo can smash it 310 yards, and he also did make the cut a few weeks ago for the PGA Championship.

PGA DFS DraftKings Targets

  • Lucas Glover ($9,900) I have to go with the South Carolina native, right? Glover has been trending upwards for a while now. In his last 32 rounds, he’s gained 0.66 total strokes. In his previous 16 rounds, he’s gained 0.59 total strokes and 1.10 total strokes in the previous eight rounds.
  • Brandt Snedeker ($8,400) – Over the last five events, Sneds has been playing very well, and it should continue this week. His driving distance isn’t something to write home about, but he has gained 2.6 strokes T2G, 1.6 on APP, and 1.6 ARG over the last five events. And his recent form is 50th, 17th, 11th, 42nd, and 6th.

PGA DFS SuperDraft Targets

  • Harold Varner (1.3X) – We all know HV3 is either a hit or a miss every week, but this course does fit his playing style. On the Rise or Fall Important Stats Model – Varner is ranked 29th T2G, 32nd ARG, 42nd on APP, and 56th OTT.
  • Vincent Whaley (1.4X) – Whaley is back in the field, and I don’t mind playing him again. As we already know – Whaley hasn’t missed a cut since February while highlighting two top 20 finishes and four top 30 finishes. On the Rise or Fall Study Hub – Whaley has gained 2.2 strokes T2G, 0.9 OTT, 0.7 ARG, and 0.6 on APP in the last five events. Lastly, Whaley gains 0.26 strokes on Bermuda greens and can drive the ball about 295 yards.

PGA Dark Horse Pick

  • Harris English ($11,300FD/$9,900) – It almost pains me to write about Harris, but he has been turning the corner in his last two events, and this course is an excellent fit for him. In his previous 64 rounds, he had gained 0.12 total strokes, then in his last 16 rounds he’s gained 0.41 total strokes, and in his last eight rounds, he’s gained 0.90 total strokes.

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 from left to right all the courses similar to The Genesis Invitational 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. 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
