PGA $6,000+ TOUR CHAMPIONSHIP
The Tour Champs is confusing bookies and dfs coaches alike but it’s really not that hard – we’re all in on stars and scrubs this week!
Firstly this is a non-cut event with only 30 players in it, so even if your guy comes last he will still get 3pts for finishing position. 8th place gets 9pts.
That makes two things paramount – having the winner and probably another 2 of the top 5, and nailing guys who are going to pick up birdie streak bonuses.
This is a tough Par 70 course at East Lakes so the bogey free and four rounds under 70 both seem highly unlikely.
The first big question is do you pay up for JT or not? You absolutely can, but for this team we are hoping he slides slightly and that one of the three superstars chasing him nail the win.
Patrick Cantlay ($24,800): Two back and playing amazing golf. Ranked in top 12 in all four facets of the game and is riding a pretty hot putter. Concern is he should be pretty chalky but every player will be ‘chalky’ this week so much rather nail the winner and guys who will play well. Cantlay fits that bill.
Brooks Koepka ($24,400): If he shows up he probably wins. Only 2 guys in front of him, it’s just a no brainer for mine. Big game player and this is the biggest game.
Rory McIlroy ($22,200): Rory is clearly the best player in the field over the season and is ranked #1 off the tee which will be important here. Having him with Brooks and Cantlay should be unique enough to contend up the top end of the leaderboard if those guys fire.
Lucas Glover ($10,400): Has played his way into this event with great ball striking and some really clutch birdies. If the occasion doesn’t get to him he is one of the value best value plays on the slate.
Jason Kokrak ($9,500): Just needs to play his game. Great off the tee, Great ball striker. These guys down here are still great golfers and Kokrak can get on a Birdie run no problems.
Chez Reavie ($8,000): Chez got into plenty of trouble on the weekend at the BMW but he is min-priced and hir irons and putting have been pretty good before then. Safe off the tee. Think he is a really easy play that allows access to the top end of the board. Not sure how chalky he will be with Bryson right above him and CH3 more of a well known name below him.Latest
