We finish the California stretch and head to Arizona for the Waste Management Phoenix Open DFS Course Preview for DraftKings & FanDuel 2021. This is by far one of my favorite events of the year. Sadly, this year due to COVID protocols, we will have 5,000 fans a day instead of the full house we usually have. Anyway, let’s begin this Course Preview.
This week we head over to beautiful Phoenix, Arizona, for the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.129 players will be in the field for this desert classic. Except that this course doesn’t play like a true desert course. Also, this week we will (finally) have one course and not multiple courses to play. It’ll also be strange watching this week without 100,000 fans.
TPC Scottsdale is 7300 yards, and par 71 played on Bermuda greens. The course has three par 5’s in which are the easiest for birdies. They have a 38-44% birdie rate, but there’s also three par 4’s that have a 17-38% birdie rate as well. In contrast, there are four holes (7, 11, 12, and 14) that have a bogey rate of 17-19%. The fairways at TPC Scottsdale are wide for the most part. So, it’s not a requirement to keep it in the fairways as the rough is never deep or thick here. Alright, let’s get to the picks!
