Last week provided us with a great tournament in Greensboro. We start the playoffs this week and golfers will have to be in the top tier to win out and make the Tour Championship. This will also be a great couple of weeks for daily fantasy golf players as well. Guys like Jason Day and Dustin Johnson will be highly favored throughout the duration of the playoffs and should be extremely popular plays. .
We are in Farmingdale, NY this week. Golfers will tackle the Bethpage State Park Black course. The course plays at 7,468 yards and a Par 71. Jason Day was last years winner and has all the right tools to win again. To make the 5 Under picks this week I used the following metrics: Strokes Gained: Tee to Green, Strokes Gained: Putting, Greens in Regulation, Driving Accuracy, Birdie Average and Scrambling.
Fantasy just got a whole lot better thanks to Monkey Knife Fight. With fast-paced games like Rapid Fire and Either/Or, it’s never been easier to play fantasy and win. New to MKF? Get Exclusive $100 Deposit Match + Free $5 Game
The weather forecast doesn’t look that bad. It is looking like partly cloudy weather with temperatures in the 70s. This article and my picks are being brought to you by Tour Golf Revolution, the site that let’s you “Reinvent League Golf.”
1. Dustin Johnson – DJ has been crushing this year. I can’t pick against him and neither can you!
2. Jason Day – Day is going for the back to back win. He proved he could win here last year and can do the same again.
3. Henrik Stenson – Stenson won the Cup in 2013. He was 2nd at The Barclays last year and had a great showing at the Olympics.
4. Justin Rose – Rose is the Gold Medal man right now, after winning at the Olympics. However, he has a good track record at The Barclays. He was T2nd in 2013 and has performed well here in the past.
5. Jordan Spieth – Jordan won the FedEx last year, but was cut at this event. He isn’t playing up to last years standard, but he still has the game to win.
Par – Zach Johnson
Bogey – Rickie Fowler
Double Bogey – Charles Howell III
