PGA DFS Workday Charity Open Preview

The PGA DFS schedule has reopened! As a result, so has my obsession for guessing–ERRRRRR–selecting who will be rolling in a higher percentage of 15-20 foot birdie putts into the foreseeable future.

Is it mostly a ridiculous exercise in futility? Pretty much. But, that certainly won’t be stopping me. And, whether my suggestions work out or flame out, it will always be an honor going into every PGA DFS battle with you each week. That, and I have nothing better to do. Especially now.

First and foremost, in PGA DFS it’s all about getting your guys to the weekend. Generally, I will fill out my roster with guys in the $7,100-$9,000 range. The factors I consider are event history, course layout versus player strengths, recent form, and prime bounce back candidates who are playing well, but happened to miss the cut the prior week.

One factor does not necessarily outweigh another. And, like any good speculative decision-making process, instinct always play a role.

Event Information

Course: Muirfield Village Golf Club, Par 72, 7,400 yards, Dublin, OH

Similar to some presidential runs, 2020 has been a year of firsts and adjustments for professional golf. Which, is why the tour will be playing back-to-back week’s at the house that Jack built. Muirfield Village (MV) Golf Club was founded and designed by some guy named Jack Nicklaus, who was born and raised near the area.

Under normal conditions, next week’s Memorial Tournament sponsored by Nationwide is Jack’s annual event here since 1976. Due to the affiliation with one the game’s greatest ambassador’s, that event attracts most of the game’s top players, and has always been a staple on Tiger’s schedule, when healthy.

This week, it will help the tour continue it’s comeback to host Workday’s first sponsored PGA event. The field is much stronger than last week, and MV will play exponentially more difficult than what players faced at Detroit Golf Club, as well.

While MV is a bit longer than the average course, numerous tee boxes will present players with bomber restrictions. It’s fairways are some of the widest on tour, but the rough areas are peppered with water hazards and bunkers.

This will likely cause most players to take safer approaches from the tee, setting themselves up in those vast fairways, where the money will really be made this week: approach shots. With green side bunkers everywhere and lighting quick bentgrass on the putting surface, consistently having clean looks from the fairway is the key to scoring here, and having any chance to contend. Expect a winning score of 12-15 under par.

Key Metrics and Odds

Week-to-week, I put an emphasis on ball striking (BS), and strokes gained: approach (SGA) the green. They are the best golf statistics that reflect a player’s ability to consistently put themselves in position to have favorable scoring chances, regardless of course setup. I would even argue that high rankings in other stats like putting, birdies, and Par-4 scoring average are directly correlated and a byproduct of strong ball striking and a precise approach performance.

Moving forward, I’ve added strokes gained: putting (SGP) and applied a weighted average (WA) calculation with the following percentages:

  • BS–50%
  • SGA–35%
  • SGP–15%

The WA metric is meant to serve as a high level illustration on how each player’s all-around form has been up to this point in the season, based on my opinion of how each stat contributes to golf performance results. To help sift through the field regarding just these stats, I put the table below together every week using all data from the official PGA Tour website. It is listed in order of each players’ WA metric ranking. Sort as you wish.

  • Char Schwartzel is 9/11 in weekends made including five top-25s, and two top-10s.
  • Another cheap grizzled veteran, Jason Dufner, has made five cuts in eight career MV starts. One of his five career wins came here in 2017. He also netted a T-7 check at the Memorial last season.
  • Rory Sabbatini aka “the other Rory” has cashed 10 checks in 12 MV appearances. Six of those cuts made have resulted in top-25 finishes.
  • A player who’s past success really translated well at Travelers Championship was Kevin Streelman. He’s kept his weekend hotel reservations seven times in 11 MV starts.
  • Always a favorite of mine, Emiliano Grillo, has made all four of his MV cuts, including three top-25s, and a personal best T-9 finish last year.
  • My PGA DFS lover, Gary Woodland, is 7/9 in MV cuts, with four top-25s, and two top-10s.
  • If you consider yourself a Kyle Stanley Truther, his 5/7 weekends made here with three top-10s might just be the confirmation bias you’ve been waiting for.
  • The absolute course horses for MV are Justin Rose, Hideki Matsuyama, Matt Kuchar, and Marc Leishman. Use the table above for details! Jim Furyk is rock solid here, as well.

Contest Approach

Henrik Norlander and K.H. Lee finished as the top two players in SGA at last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic. In the low end range, I am strongly considering both as solid building block pieces.

Lee has proven to be more of a streaky guy in the early stages of his career. In 2019, he made eight consecutive cuts, including a T-37 here in his first MV appearance. Before the shutdown this year, he was profiling again as a dependable low end/make the cut guy, with four straight cashed checks. Last week’s stellar play might be a sign of his better form taking shape.

For a more thorough breakdown of every price range on DK, listen to my podcast below as Kyle Robert joins me again to play the weekly PGA DFS price range game. I think you will enjoy it. The podcast is also available on every major platform.

Core Players

These selections are players that I believe have top-25 floors with top 10 upside, and a reasonable case to win. They will be used in all my lineups. This week’s selections:

  1. Patrick Cantlay
  2. Hideki Matsuyama
  3. Marc Leishman
