Top DraftKings PGA DFS Picks for the ATT Pebble Beach Pro-Am 2022

The West Coast Swing is headed north up the Pacific Coast, from one legendary venue to perhaps the most legendary. Pebble Beach Golf Links is golf Mecca. The roars summoned here by Tom Watson and Tiger Woods still echo through the cypress trees and harmonize with the waves crashing ashore.

The pro-am tournament is a timeless February tradition, bringing PGA Tour professionals and celebrities together since the days of Bing Crosby. It is here at Pebble Beach where bucket list items are summarily checked off. For PGA DFS players, the field is ample and diverse. With Team Rise or Fall, your ticket to riches is only a click away.

Top DraftKings PGA DFS Picks for the ATT Pebble Beach Pro-Am 2022

The Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines last week was a veritable profit monster for Team Rise or Fall, with many of our core plays leading the charge on a wild Saturday finish. I was happy to contribute Billy Horschel as a great value play (among a few others) in last week’s article. For a nice recap of the process, check out this short video with Mitch:

Stick It Close: Studs to Target

Patrick Cantlay (DK: $11,200; FD: $12,300; Y!: $52)

It might sound strange, but I think it’s great that Cantlay is at the top of the salary scale this week. For one, he’s the most consistently-hot player on Tour right now and I want to keep riding that wave. Cantlay might also avoid some serious ownership because of his “prohibitive” price. The greens at Pebble Beach are tiny and challenging. They are also that way at Spyglass Hill. The Monterey Peninsula course will be easier on everyone and Cantlay is making a ton of birdies these days. He’s a perfect fit for this array of Northern California courses. With some complimentary value plays, it will not be as daunting to build a PGA DFS winner around him.

Cameron Tringale (DK: $9,500; FD: $11,200; Y!: $41)

On DraftKings, there are a few guys in this mid-$9k range that I love this week at Pebble Beach. Tringale is one of them, but his best value is most definitely going to be found on FanDuel and Yahoo!. He possesses one of the best short games in the world and grades out well from tee to green. Tringale also has fared well here, most recently finishing T-7 last year at the Pro-Am. Length is not an advantage on these courses, nor is it a large part of Tringale’s game. He is a crafty player who is simply excellent at putting the ball in the hole.

Seamus Power (DK: $9,400; FD: $11,100; Y!: $41)

Another gem that the PGA Tour has uncovered in the last couple of years is the Irishman, Seamus (Shame-ous) Power. Power is riding some impressive form recently, with three-consecutive top-15 finishes this season. Like Tringale, his salary is a much more appealing value on FanDuel and Yahoo! than on DraftKings, but that also might help mitigate chalk somewhat. The trio of courses on the agenda this weekend are similar in length and playability to Wai’alae in the Sony Open, where Power finished a solo third. His recent form is so amazing that it will be difficult to keep him from my core plays. Another notable golfer in the same range that just missed this column is Maverick McNealy at $9,800. He will be in the player pool, but maybe at a tick less exposure.

No Gimme: Tap-In Values

Michael Thompson (DK: $7,900; FD: $9,000; Y!: $27)

If you look up mundane or unremarkable in the dictionary, you’ll see a picture of a 30-something white male with an accounting degree. That man may or may not be Michael Thompson, who has actually belied his unassuming name and persona with an impressive PGA Tour career. The two-time Tour winner has a top-10 at Pebble Beach on his resume (2019) and finished 34th here last year. I really want to focus on building PGA DFS lineups where all six golfers make the cut. Thompson won’t be overly popular, but he is a good putter and will have a high likelihood of seeing the weekend.

Lucas Glover (DK: $7,800; FD: $9,400; Y!: $34)

Another safer value play is Glover. Glover has scored 80-plus DraftKings points in all three tournaments in 2022, highlighted by his fifth-place finish at the Sony Open. Glover also finished T-7 at Pebble Beach in 2017 and has the tee-to-green and approach game to match up with the demands of this week’s Pro-Am. My main strategy will be to eschew spending up on multiple golfers this week, in an effort to avoid diving to the bottom of the pool for high-risk dart throws. Glover is a better value on DraftKings than he is on FanDuel or Yahoo!.

Vincent Whaley (DK: $7,100; $8,500; Y!: $23)

In my Cantlay lineups, I will need some salary relief. Not many players under $7k really make me feel comfortable this week, so I will try to get guys in there like Whaley. Whaley isn’t a flashy player, measuring poorly in most advanced metrics. He is, however, an excellent putter who performs well at courses that don’t require a ton of length off the tee. He has played in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am twice and made the cut each time (50th in 2021, 38th in 2020). I like value plays who also provide leverage on the field and instill just a touch more confidence in rostering them. If Whaley reaches the weekend, your lineup will be in the mix for some serious money.

I will be with you for an entire PGA Tour season of DFS picks. I hope you join me in victory throughout 2022 and beyond. I promise to be a better DFS golfer than an actual golfer. You can find all of my musings on Twitter. Good luck and hit ’em straight!
