Course Preview

What an epic finish for the U.S. Open last week. I don’t think there’s anyone else that deserved that W more than Rahm after pretty much winning at Memorial. I couldn’t ask for a better major. Changing course – this week, we head out to Cromwell, Connecticut, for The Travelers Championship. TPC River Highlands has 69 sand bunkers, five holes with water in play, and another event with very tough rough as we’ll be seeing over 3.5″ of rough.

This week Dustin Johnson defends his title against Bryson Dechambeau, Brooks Koepka, and a handful of other elite players in the field. Pete Dye-designed TPC River Highlands which is 6800 yards, par 70, played on Bentgrass / Poa Annua greens. Besides the par 5’s being the easiest holes to play, holes 2, 9,11, and 15 will also have a 20-40% birdie rate. The most difficult holes are the 4th, 5th, and 10th hole. These three holes have a bogey rate of 18-20%, with a double-bogey rate of 5%.

The fairways are wider as you get closer to the hole, which definitely plays in the hands of the bombers in the field. However, the bunters who consistently hit fairways should give themselves better looks at hitting the greens in regulation, so you really can go any direction you’d prefer. Alrighty, let’s move on to the picks for this week.

  • Strokes Gained: Off The Tee
  • Strokes Gained: Approach The Green
  • Strokes Gained: Tee To Green
  • Strokes Gained: Around The Green
  • Birdie or Better

PGA DFS FanDuel Targets

  • Bryson DeChambeau ($12,300) – Oh boy, the most expensive golfer for this event. Look, besides Bryson imploding on Sunday – he started the back nine at -2 to finish +6. He actually had a decent game. Bryson’s course history here is 6th, 8th, and 9th in the last few years. Over the previous five events, Bryson has gained 4.6 OTT, 3.4 T2G, and a stroke on APP.
  • Paul Casey ($11,600) – After taking a top 10 finish at the U.S. Open, I very much like him here with his course history. In the last six years, Casey has placed the following: 32nd, 5th, 2nd, 5th, 17th, and 2nd.  His ball-striking ranks 4th in the field over the last 16 rounds, and he ranks 2nd in T2G per the Rise or Fall Study Hub.

PGA DFS DraftKings Targets

  • Abraham Ancer ($9,100) – I hope Ancer’s missed cut doesn’t give you a sour taste. His last miss cut was back in February at Genesis, so I definitely don’t mind going back to him this week. On the Rise or Fall Important Stats Model – 6th in Driving Accuracy, 11th in Greens in Regulation, 24th in Birdies, 29th OTT, 29th T2G, and 30th on Approach.
  • Harris English ($8,200) – I don’t know if you have been paying attention the last two weeks, but I’ve listed English as a dark horse in back-to-back weeks. He placed 14th at Palmetto and 3rd last week at the U.S. Open. In those last two events, he’s gained 13 strokes T2G, four strokes ARG, four strokes at APP, and four strokes OTT.

PGA DFS SuperDraft Targets

  • Si Woo Kim (1.3X) – I absolutely love playing Si Woo at Pete Dye courses. In 22 rounds, Si Woo has gained 1.90 total strokes on Pete Dye courses from 2020 to the present. Si Woo is also trending upwards as he’s gained 1.48 total strokes in the last eight rounds. He is ranked 23rd ARG, 35th T2G, 46th OTT, 56th in Birdies, and 64th in Greens in Regulation.
  • Keegan Bradley (1.3X) – Keegs is another player that is similar to Ancer in the sense that he missed the cut, and I think he’ll also be forgotten. Besides missing the cut at Memorial, the last time he missed the cut again was back in January. In Keegan’s previous five events, he’s gained 5.2 strokes T2G, 2.7 at APP, 1.5 OTT, and 1 ARG.

PGA Dark Horse Pick

  • Rickie Fowler ($9,800FD/$7,300DK) So Rickie is about to have a baby! LOCK HIM IN. Let’s go! just kidding. So we do have a small sample size, but Rickie is trending upwards. Shoutout to one of our coaches for pointing that out (Scrosby). Over the last 32 rounds, he’s gained 0.92 total strokes; over the previous 16 rounds, he’s gained 1.25 total strokes, and over the last eight rounds, he’s gained 2.09 total strokes. Lastly, he’s gained 2.8 strokes T2G, 1.5 ARG, and one stroke OTT & APP in the last five 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. 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. 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
