PGA DFS: Hamilton Golf and Country Club Course Preview and Trends

After an exciting week in Dublin, Ohio, the course turns its attention North for the RBC Canadian Open. For the first time since 2012, Hamilton Golf and Country Club will play host to a PGA Tour event. It’s a short par 70 course, playing a hair under 7,000 yards. There are bentgrass greens here. Based on past results, we could be in for some low numbers here this week. There’s a creek that crosses nine of the holes here and 87 bunkers litter the course. The course has only been played sporadically over the past 15 years or so which means we’ll get a feel for the course through these trends but they aren’t the be all, end all because it’s a smaller sample than we typically look at.

OFF THE TEE

Anytime I see a par 70 that’s under 7,000 yards, my first inkling is that this course can be overpowered. The correlations bear that out, too, as driving distance is twice as correlated to DK Scoring as driving accuracy. Of the 34 golfers who finished inside of the top 10 here in the past, 18 (53%) finished in the top 25 of distance while just 13 (38%) hit that number in accuracy off the tee.

Driving Distance Rank Golfer (Salary)
1 Dustin Johnson ($11,900)
2 Bubba Watson ($8,900)
3 J.B. Holmes ($7,600)
4 Rory McIlroy ($11,700)
5 Brooks Koepka ($11,700
6 Ryan Palmer ($8,200)
7 Justin Thomas ($10,000)
8 Keegan Bradley ($8,500)
9 Hudson Swafford ($6,500)
10 Harris English ($7,300)

ON APPROACH

With the potential for a low winning score, greens in regulation are a must again this week. There have been 15 golfers to finish inside of the top five of DK scoring at this event. Of that group, eight (60%) finished in the top 10 of greens in regulation. Greens in regulation by itself explains over 30% of DK scoring, so finding ball-strikers with some distance off the tee is the play this week.
