PGA DFS Picks, RSM Classic
RSM Classic GPP Target Core
Last week went pretty well despite Cejka missing the cut (Read last week’s article). In fact, in a rare occurrance, my top core lineup had two players miss the cut and I still cashed out in the $27 GPP (see full results below). This week we move to Sea Island, GA to play the RSM classic; a tournament with the rounds being split between two different courses. It will be interesting to watch so let’s dive in to the GPP Core for this week. The core is a little pricey this week so you will have to do your homework to find some other value plays while constructing your lineups. I use a multi-entry approach and I can spread them out sometimes across 4-5 LUs.
Birdie or Better % (bob%)
Driving Accuracy (DA)
Par 4 Scoring (P4)
Stroke Gained Putting (SGP)
Patton Kizzire, 9.5k
I love Patton this week. His recent form has been great and he’s extremely familiar with this course which should give him an advantage. Kizzire’s DA hasn’t been that great to start the season and although he’s never been super accurate off the tee he was much better last season on the Web.com Tour, ranking 80th (61%). He’s 24th in bob%, 57th in P4, and he’s been excellent on the greens ranking 8th in SGP. Together with solid stats, recent form, and course familiarity, Patton is my top play of the week.
Brian Harman, 8.1k
Like Kizzire, Harman is familiar with the course as he uses it to practice and train. His recent form has been good, he has a solid course history and his stats are average, but not bad. He’s 57th in bob%, 63rd in DA, 57th in P4, and 49th in SGP. I honestly think he should be priced closer to $8600 so I’m loving the value I’m getting as well. I thought Levin was underpriced last week and that worked out well so here’s to the same results!
Kevin Kisner, 10.4k,
Kisner is a bit pricey but everything seems to be lined up for him to play great this weekend. His last two outings here resulted in a 20th and 4th place finishes and his recent form has been top notch with three top 25’s in his last five events. He’s 20th in bob%, 31st in DA, 37th in P4, and 78th in SGP. Overall that’s extremely strong and if he can roll a few extra putts in, look out.
Brice Garnett, 7.9k
I don’t have any super cheap players in my core this week but Garnett is the cheapest but I have no worries playing him in multiple lineups. I rolled him out last week in a couple lineups and he paid off great for his price. His stats are excellent for this course: 10th bob%, 83rd DA, 4th P4, and 19th in SGP. For 7.9k, that’s hard to beat. A lot of the guys ahead of him haven’t been playing to that level and although he doesn’t have a high finish here, he’s made the cut his last two trips. He showed last week he has the ability to score low and that’s what you’re looking for when building a GPP LU.
As I said in the intro, this is a pretty expensive core so it will be hard to cram them all into one LU but I typically use a multi LU approach to GPPs and these players will make up the core of each roster, whether it’s 2 or even 3 of them as the building blocks. Good luck this week!
