Whats up ScoutArmy — it’s a quiet PGA DFS week but its a special tournament to me as the PGA is at the TPC Avenel this week in Potomac, MD. Prior to them re-doing the course I used to caddy there back in high school for the pro-am when it was the Kemper Open. And the pro the last year I did it won the tournament — Justin Leonard — so he always has a special place in my heart.
Anyways, here’s some of the picks I have for this week’s field which is not that top heavy.
Rickie Fowler … Rickie is reportedly only here to honor a sponsorship commitment, but I still think he will play well and I prefer him over Woods in the higher priced tier this week.
Jamie Lovemark … Has been consistent of late and will be a popular/chalk play this week. He’s a core chalk play for me this week.
Beyong Hun-An … Beyonce as I call him is someone who feels like a boom or bust play, but I’ll have plenty of him/her this week. Vegas odds are good considering the DK price this week.
OTHERS TO CONSIDER
10k+: Mac Leishaman, Kyle Stanley
8k – 10k: Kevin Streelman, Beau Hossler, Chesson Hadley
< 8k: Billy Horschel, Si Woo Kim, Sung Kang, Brian Gay, Jason Kokrak
LONGSHOT WINNER PREDICTION
Bill Haas … This is not a long course and Haas should play well here this week. In recent years this tournament always being after the US Open and before “The Open” it typically has drawn off the top tier winners and Haas is my guy in that spot this week.
