Daily Fantasy Golf – Wells Fargo Championship

Listen to the podcast below for an in-depth look into the players I will be targeting this week at the Wells Fargo Championship.

I’d like to just quickly say that I’m a big fan of team format at the Zurich. I know it’s not “pure golf” and I bet some old timers boycotted and called into PGA radio to bitch, but I thought it was solid viewing. Sure, I was a little bummed that there was not DFS but I still was able to toss a few $$ on some teams (and luckily, one of those teams was Blixt/Smith!!) but even aside from that it was interesting. It’s only once a year and the alternate shot was a fun twist. Nothing like having your shot behind a tree stump thanks to a partners shank! Hopefully this will continue in the future and FD/DK can figure out how to make it work for fantasy as well.

Note: There is no course history for the event this week. Typically, this event is played at Quail Hollow but with QH getting ready for the PGA Championship, this weeks event will be played at Eagle Point Golf Club.

The course will be approximately 7,400 yards and so far, the word is this course is immaculate and is drawing a lot of comparisons to August National. That’s some bold talk. Keep that in mind while forming your teams this week.

Key Stats:

SG: Off The Tee
SG: Tee to Green
SG: Approach
Birdie %
Bogey Avoidance

There will be a few more stats than usual this week due to having no history to go on for both player form and the development of key stats.

Elite – Dustin Johnson 13k, Jon Rahm 11k

Upper Middle – Paul Casey 9.9k, Francesco Molinari 9.2k

Middle – Glover 8.6k, Kisner 8.4k, Berger 8.3k, Ben An 8.2k, JB Holmes 8.0k

Lower Middle – Willie McGirt 7.9k, Kevin Tway 7.2k

Value – Shane Lowry 6.9k, Luke List 6.9k, Alexander Noren 6.6k, Stewart Cink 6.4k

Wells Fargo Bets (each-way):

Webb Simpson 33/1
Daniel Berger 35/1
JB Holmes 45/1
Shane Lowry 75/1
Lucas Glover 75/1
Troy Merritt 400/1

Merritt is a pure punt based on a Pat Mayo (@thepme) tip. He had him at 250/1 so I figured at 400/1 it was worth the smallest of wagers. I went lighter than usual this week because, yes, I’m scared of the guys at the top.
