PGA DFS: Plays and Pivots for the Wyndham Championship on DraftKings

The Tour is heading to Greensboro, NC for this year’s Wyndham Championship. The course, as usual, is Sedgefield Country Club. It’s a par-70 course that plays just a touch over 7,100 yards, and the greens are bermudagrass. There are only 48 bunkers on the course to go along with the 13 water hazards. It’s not the most difficult course around, despite all of that water. In fact, you have to go all the way back to 2013 for it to be inside of the top 30 most difficult courses for a given season. Last year, there was only one hole in the top 125 most difficult holes on tour. As you’ll see with the winning scores, there are birdies to be had.

Be sure to check out the course preview article for more information on Sedgefield CC.  

Checking The Chalk

Webb Simpson ($11,200) is way up at the top of the pricing heap this week as the only golfer above $11,000. He has now made eight straight cuts dating back to March and hasn’t finished outside of the top 30 during that span, including three top-five finishes. Simpson’s averaging over 80 DK points in his past eight outings. Over the last 24 rounds, Simpson has been just as impressive. During that stretch, he’s in the top 15 in SG: Ball-Striking. Simpson also happens to be 2nd in SG: Putting and DK scoring over that stretch. 

He’s expensive, but Collin Morikawa ($10,400) looks like he’ll be plenty popular, as well. Morikawa is coming off of a win in just his seventh start on Tour. He has hit more than two-thirds of his greens in regulation in six of his seven starts in his young career.

As of this writing, I think ownership can go a few different ways. Make sure you check back for the projections and see where you can gain leverage using the Power Ranking Model. 

GPP Plays

Sungjae Im ($8,300) seems a bit underpriced this week given the season he’s put together. Granted, he’s coming off of a missed cut but, since the beginning of June, he’s made six of his last seven cuts. Even with a 16.5-point effort from his missed cut thrown in, Im is averaging over 73 DK points during that span. He’s broken 75 DK points in 11 of his 24 events this year. 

We haven’t seen him in a few weeks, but Vaughn Taylor ($7,400) has been playing solid golf since a couple of missed cuts in April. He’s on a streak of seven made cuts and has hit more than 70% of his GIR in all but two of those appearances. Taylor has even flashed some upside during that stretch. He’s averaging over 81 DK points including three 90-plus point performances. Taylor has finished in the top 20 in four of those starts. 

Cash Locks

So far this season, the totals for the cash locks are 51/56 (91%) made cuts, 37/56 (66%) top 30s, and 17/56 (30.3%%) top 10s. Here are this week’s cash locks:

  • Paul Casey ($9,800)
  • Joaquin Niemann ($9,100)
