PGA DFS Picks – Wyndham Championships

Well, last week ended my consensus 4th straight cashing week.  I cashed in some 50/50s and lost in others, and did not cash in GPPs with my posted lineup.  Always rough getting 5/6 players through the cut and not cashing in all games but that happens with deeper fields and softer pricing.  You can see last weeks results below this article.

This week we head to the Wyndham Championship, where players are making their last ditch efforts to either make the FedEx playoff or improve their standing.

Top Stats For This Week:
P3 & P4 Scoring
SCR – Scrambling
DA – Driving Accuracy
T2G – Strokes Gained Tee to Green

I didn’t have intentions on making a Studs/Duds lineup, but that’s exactly how it turned out. Not going to lie though, I feel wrong not having Wil Wilcox in my lineup.

Brooks Koepka (10.8k) – Hot, hot, HOT.  No other way to describe the recent play of Koepka.  Six straight top 20’s, three top 10’s, and two top 5’s.  This isn’t a bombers course, but Brooks is 6th in P4 Scoring and 29th in T2G. The main reason for me playing him is I think he will be highly owned and I also think he will play well this week so I don’t want to fade him in cash games.

Branden Grace (9.7k) – I’m hoping Grace isn’t popular this weekend.  He too has been playing great golf of late and his stats are misleading because he’s spent most of his time playing on the euro tour. He’s 26th in P3 Scoring and 46th in P4.  And his GIR is much improved when looking at his Euro stats.

Paul Casey (9.2k) – Casey has made seven straight cuts and has the game to match up to this course.  He’s 20th in P4 Scoring and 10th in T2G, paired with solid scrambling/proximity (19th). He finished 18th in this event last year and he’s one of the top players in the field.  He should have no problem contending for the win.

Colt Knost (6.9k) – Knost has made the cut in 7 of his last 9 events, including three top 10’s in that span.  When looking for value plays, I let the stats guide me.  Knost’s game lines up great for Wyndham.  He’s 26th and 28th in P3 and P4 Scoring, 8th in proximity and 6th in driving accuracy.  He doesn’t have a great T2G game but he should play well enough on this Par 70 course to make the cut.

Vaughn Taylor (6.7k) – Taylor is going to be a gamble but his stats lineup perfectly.  Oh, and he’s 10/10 in making cuts while playing in PGA Tour events this season. He’s 1st in P3 Scoring, 1st in proximity, and 8th in T2G.  He’s also 8th in DA, and 46th in P4 Scoring.  You really can’t get a better deal this week if you’re looking to load up on the top end.

William McGirt (6.6k) – McGirt has made 6/8 cuts and finished 8th last year at this event.  He hasn’t been finishing that high this season but his game does match up pretty well here.  He’s top 30 in DA, Prox, and P4 Scoring.  He’s 48th in T2G, and 56th in P3 Scoring. Pretty solid number for the cheapest golfer on my squad this week.  I know he doesn’t seem safe but he should be able to make the cut.
