What? No Match Play!? Top DFS Picks for the Corales Puntacana Championship
Yes. I’m aware that there’s a bigger, more popular event happening this week. That’s ok. WE’re going to take a look at a lesser known, alternate PGA event! I’ve got your Top DFS Picks for the Corales Puntacana Championship and you’re gonna like it! I team up for a podcast each week with fellow Team Rise or Fall member, Adam Hallas. Adam gave a great little introduction to the course this week.
“The course is what we call a resort-style course with pretty wide fairways, no real punishment if you get off the fairway. This course’s only real threat is the wind from the ocean. Grip it and rip it!”
Meaning… let’s look for some bombs off the tee this week! That being said… we are going to want a sprinkle of accuracy, a decent approach, and no bogeys. My. picks this week are all fairly long off the tee, but with the limited field of notable players, I’ve also worked in some really well-rounded players with history at this event.
My goal isn’t to build your lineup for you, it’s to guide you by using my experience as a sports bettor and the membership tools available at Team Rise or Fall. With that being said… here are this week’s top DFS picks for the Corales Puntacana Championship (after a word from our sponsor).
Team Rise or Fall Members have access to the PGA Study Hub, which I use heavily for my analysis here. My favorite feature is the PGA Stats Model Tab, which allows me to weigh Strokes Gained and other stats by importance for that particular week and see new rankings.
All memberships come with Study Hub and Discord Access, however, only *Monthly ALL Access* plan comes with a $20 monthly credit to Fantasy Cruncher.
Top DFS picks for the Corales Puntacana Championship
- DraftKings $10.5
- FanDuel $12.0
Wyndham Clark has been playing quite well recently. There’s no reason to think that he won’t continue to do so. When I went through my modeling process, he ends up ranking first, so I’m going with it. Clark is long off the tee at around 313 yards and fairly accurate too. He finished 22nd in his event debut last year.
- DraftKings $9.6
- FanDuel $11.7
Both Adam and I agreed on the pod that Thomas Detry was a good pick for the tournament this week. I was pleased to see him not only be a good course fit but also turn up as ranked 2nd in my model. He’s been playing pretty well over the last 10 weeks, with the exception of last week. That was just brutal.
- DraftKings $8.3
- FanDuel $9.8
Cam Percy is another name that Adam and I both landed on in our podcast. He shows up as a good fit for the course using one of my research tools and shows up again when I created my model using the Team Rise or Fall Study Hub. He’s played in this event twice, finishing 8th in 2020 and 4th in 2022. Additionally, his last two event finishes have been pretty decent. Let’s do this!
- DraftKings $8.7
- FanDuel $10.2
I’ve never played Kramer Hickok before, but there’s a first time for everything, especially in a field like this. He has fantastic course history and I like that about him, finishing 10th in 2019, 21st in 2020, and 13th last year. Not only that… he’s also played really well in his last 4 events.
- DraftKings $7.7
- FanDuel $9.4
It’s no surprise that Dylan Wu is yet another name many analysts are finding a consensus on. He ranks 6th in my model and comes at a smokin’ hot price. He made the cut at 56th last year at this event, so that’s good and his play in recent events has been really good! I’m in on Dylan Wu.
