PGA $6,000+ CJ CUP
We don’t have to worry about a cut AND we get to watch this in the afternoons – no better time to get into DFS PGA than Asian swing!
The only defence for this course is wind and we likely won’t be seeing too much of it particularly on the weekend where conditions look pretty benign.
It’s a bombers paradise and if they can use a wedge, that’d be handy.
Justin Thomas ($23,950): Played here once in 2017 and shot 9 under par R1. The wind blew big time for the next three days and he finished 9 under and won it. That 63 though is achievable for JT any given round this time and with so many quality players below him i’m not sure how highly owned he will actually be here. Top 5 no problems. First man picked.
Jordan Spieth ($17,400): Speaking of low-owned, no one knows what Spieth will bring here but the fairways are massive at this course so even if he is spraying it, he won’t get into as much trouble (relatively speaking) as he might at other courses. His short game and putting is the best in the world, so if he is getting looks at the greens and not OB, he is in this event. Will be less than 5%.
Tommy Fleetwood ($17,390): Fleetwood is going to be popular but it’s warranted. Fleetwood should suit this course pretty well, he is just so consistent and waaaaay overdue to breakthrough. Amazing T10 equity though.
Victor Hovland ($17,200): Another chalky play but anyone who has access to any kinds of statistics will play Vic here. His ball striking, driving distance, it’s just too good not to have here. This course is perfect for him. Free square, move on.
Matthew Wolff ($14,290): See above. Wolff will win this event if he dials in his irons, which have been the final piece of his game he has not got right on the PGA Tour so far.
Keith Mitchell ($9,760): His game has been horrid lately but last year he finished T14 here with 23 birdies which is exactly the game we are looking for in a no cut event from a cheapy. Course hasnt changes, his length is a massive asset here. Going again on course form.Latest
