PGA $6,000+ BMW CHAMPIONSHIP
With just a 70-man field and no cut to sweat, we’re getting into ‘pick who you like’ territory for the penultimate PGA event of the 2019 season.
We’ve gone for a stars and scrubs build here taking Rory and Brooks but any six guys you take into this event will be playing the weekend (barring a WD) so any build is a good build so long as your guys are at the top come Sunday.
Taking birdie-makers is a good idea this week though because even if they blow it on a few holes, they will still get four rounds worth of birdie opportunities.
Brooks Koepka ($24,700): Not many will pay up for Brooks this week I think given the quality around that 18-20k range, especially not when he is coming off a 30th at the Northern Trust. Prime Books time if you ask me!
Rory McIlroy ($24,670): Pairing the two best players in the field would usually bring significant risks with your last 1-3 guys in but being a n-cut event, all six guys will play the weekend so I see no reason not to take the two best guys here. Rory putted well last week, the irons were a little off, but if he putts well again he wins.
Jordan Spieth ($17,370): Say what you will about his Off The Tee and Approach game, but the guy can putt and he made more birdies than anyone else at the Northern Trust last week so the dfs points are certainly thre for Spieth over 4 rounds. Likely to be low owned as well.
Andrew Putnam ($13,170): Pod play mainly on recent form, Putnam has been on a solid run since the Charles Schwab and is coming off a solid 12th last start. Needs a good week to play in the Tour Championship and really, no one ever picks Putnam, he was 1% owned last week and shouldnt see too much of a bump here.
Shane Lowry ($12,060): Absolute bargain! This course sets up perfectly for him, he is a magician with wedge in hand. I expect him to gain 3-4 strokes on the field around the greens this week which makes his price tag highly appealing.
Ryan Palmer ($8,000): Paying for a flat min guy usually comes with high risk but Palmer is a good golfer and again, we are getting four rounds out of him on a course that actually suits his game well. Likely to be pretty chalky though.Latest
