Another Elite Field Set to Tee it Up at Riviera

Another Elite Field Set to Tee it Up at Riviera

While legendary celebrity golfer Bill Murray provided the laughs this past weekend at Pebble Beach, Ted Potter Jr. provided the drama. The unlikely champion stormed past a group of the world’s elite Sunday at the AT&T Pro-Am, claiming victory after a long road of recovery from a broken ankle. Potter’s huge daily fantasy performance was quite unexpected, as he could be had for bargain basement prices in both DraftKings and FanDuel.

The chalk picks didn’t disappoint those who built their lineups around them in four-day and weekend contests. World’s number one Dustin Johnson might have had another missed opportunity at victory, but his 111.5 points on DraftKings propelled many DFS players to a payday. Jason Day followed up his win a few weeks ago with a solid four rounds, and his solid play continues to increase his value. Phil Mickelson kept splashing in the fountain of youth, finishing near the top of the leaderboard once again.

Expert golf advice

Consistent fantasy performer Matt Kuchar started the tournament on fire, but couldn’t muster many birdies over the weekend, finishing with about half the points as the leaders. Other second tier picks such as Bubba Watson and Brandt Snedeker posted mediocre numbers. JB Holmes had a miserable time of it, sinking the chances for many lineups on Saturday after missing the cut. Sleeper pick Chez Reavie was tremendous with his second place finish, and Rafael Cabrera-Bello put up a great number despite long odds.

Expect the High Scoring to Continue in LA

The Genesis Open could very well play out like a Hollywood movie this weekend, as many of the big stars on the PGA tour will be vying for the title at Riviera Country Club. Longtime great Tiger Woods makes his second start of the season at historic Riviera, a course that he’s not been able to conquer yet in his storied career. Tiger’s star power will certainly generate big crowds following his group, but he might not find himself on too many fantasy lineups with Johnson, Spieth, and Justin Thomas serving as the top ambassadors of the youth movement.

Reavie makes for quite the value pick, as he’s available for $8000 on DraftKings and has sniffed victory twice recently. The always reliable Tony Finau can provide great punch without cleaning out your available salary as well. Austin Cook, Jhonattan Vegas, and Charley Hoffman make for intriguing sleeper options, as all can be picked up relatively cheap on either site.
