It would ...

No, golf fans, we have not been magically transported back to 2006 when The PLAYERS Championship was last played in March.  The Golf Gods decided to make the switch so we will be enjoying golf’s unofficial fifth major in March this year rather than May.

That will likely be a good thing from a daily fantasy perspective. It is probably safe to say most golfers will play better under cooler conditions rather than the humid days of May. With the money on the line this time (total purse of $12.5 million; first-place share of $2.25 million), we are likely going to see the best of the best doing what they do.

What does that mean as you start to think about who you want to start on your daily fantasy team?

How about a little information about the course and the weather?

The 46th PLAYERS Championship is set to be played from March 14-17 at the TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. For the 38th time, it will be played on the Stadium Course.

What makes this course interesting is that when course architect Peter Dye was contacted to design it, he was told to make sure that it didn’t favor any one kind of player or style of play. So, while it isn’t the longest course at 7189 (par 72), it is a challenging one.

Weather conditions don’t appear as if they are going to be too bad. Temperatures are expected to be in the high 50’s to high 60’s throughout the weekend. But it may feel a little chillier since it is supposed to be partly cloudy or cloudy.

There is a chance for rain though, but not a major one (10, 20, 30, and 10 percent).

The Players for The PLAYERS

I like to give defending champs the benefit of the doubt since they are obviously familiar with a course. But last year’s win was the first in nine tries. Previously, he hadn’t recorded a single top ten. So far this season he has been too inconsistent to really trust in your lineup (especially when there are so many choices).

But you should consider giving these guys a look:

•    Tiger Woods: There probably isn’t a time when you shouldn’t consider Tiger for your lineup. The neck injury is a good reason to exercise caution, but he says he is good to go. While he isn’t playing a lot, he is playing well (t20, t15, and t10). It will be interesting to see what kind of impact his new putting coach has.

•    Rory McIlroy: This guy is destined to record a win any week now with how he has been playing; when a t6 finish is your worst of the season (five starts), you are apparently doing something right. He has four top-12 finishes at TPC Sawgrass, so you know he can play the course.

•    Justin Thomas: Prior to finishing t30 at the Honda Classic, he had finished inside the top ten in four of his last five tournaments including three top-five finishes. He is definitely hitting the ball well enough to do well this weekend. Not sure about him? He finished t11 here last year and t3 in 2016. He knows the course

•    Hideki Matsuyama: He is not having as good a year as some of the other guys, but he is playing well enough to be in a position to make some noise; he just needs to follow through.

•    Some other players worth giving a look include Tommy Fleetwood, Jon Rahm, Patrick Cantlay, and Xander Schauffele.

The 70 golfers remaining in the FedEx Cup Playoffs will not have far to go for the third leg of the playoffs this week. The BMW Championship is at the Aronimink Golf Club in Newton, Pennsylvania. With the field now smaller by 30 players, it becomes even more important to recognize who is going to be this week’s Cameron Smith.

It isn’t going to b...

This week, the PGA Tour remains on the East Coast for the second leg of the FedEx Cup Playoffs, the Dell Technologies Championship. The field will be a little smaller which means that your daily fantasy lineup could be easier or harder to set (depending on your outlook).

Unlike most tournaments, this one runs Friday through Monday instead of the usual Thursday-Sunday schedule.

So—who do you go with? Before diving into an examination of some of the options…

How about a little information about the course and weather?

The tournament will be held at TPC Boston in Norton, Massachusetts which is south-southwest of Boston. The course is a par-71 that is 7,216 yards long.

After a warm week leading up to Round One on Friday, the weather is expected to take a turn for the worse over the weekend. Winds will be kind of high Friday (11 MPH) but temperatures will be comfortable (69 degrees). But there will also be a 20 percent chance of rain. Saturday will be much like Friday, cool with a chance of rain and overcast.

But things could get a little crazy (or wet) on Sunday and Monday. Temperatures will be around the mid-70s with a chance of thunderstorms and a 60 percent chance of rain.

The Players

There has never been a back-to-back champion at the Dell Technologies Championship, but Justin Thomas has a decent shot at becoming the first. While the competition is going to be stiff and other golfers know the course better than him, he has proven he can master it. With how he has been playing the last few weeks, it is hard not to have a little confidence in him.

He took first at WC Bridgestone earlier this month. Followed it up with a tied for sixth finish at the PGA Championship. Last week at The Northern Trust he tied for eighth. It is also worth noting that he has not recorded a round over 69 in his last three tournaments.

It’s a loaded field, so it is hard to say he’ll win. But he is talented and playing at a high level with consistency. He could be a very reliable pick.

The following players are also worth consideration:

Adam Scott—Many of the experts are picking him which makes him hard to ignore. He has won here before, but it has been awhile (2003). But he has always played well at TPC Boston (six top-10s in 12 career starts). While he did have a rather rough stretch earlier in the year, he appears to have come out of it. He took third at the PGA Championship a couple weeks ago and finished tied for fifth last week.

Rory McIlroy— It seems like every time I want to choose him, he flops. But the stage is set for him to have a great week. Yes, he players terribly the last time he was on a course (tied for 50th at the PGA Championship) but he knows this course. He’s won twice at TPC Boston and is the career earnings leader for it. He was playing well before the PGA Championship. Look for his familiarity at this course to get him back on track.

Patrick Reed—He hasn’t been playing great lately (two MC in last five tournaments). But he hasn’t been terrible either (two t28 finishes and a t25). What makes him an enticing pick is that he seems to play well at TPC Boston year in and year out. Over the last three years, he’s finished tied for fourth, fifth and sixth. Even if the trend continues and he finishes tied for seventh, he’ll still be a good fantasy player.

Tony Finau— An opening round 74 killed him at the PGA Championship but he rebounded well with a 66-69-68. More importantly, he followed that up with a second-place finish at the The Northern Trust last week (69-67-66-68). He’s been playing well of late and led the field at The Northern Trust in a stat that bodes well for this week—tee-to-green.

Dark Horse Candidates

Tiger Woods— Every time I want to believe in Tiger, he throws up a stinker like he did last week. But he is still Tiger, so he can’t be ruled out of the equation.

Jordan Spieth—Was a runner-up at TPC Boston last year; still not playing a consistent game. But he remains one of those guys that could break out the second you leave him out of your lineup.

This week the PGA Tour heads to the East Coast for the start of the FedEx Cup playoffs, the Northern Trust. It’s the first of four tournaments that will feature the 125 qualified players. With a limited field that means daily fantasy players will have the best of the best player on tour to choose from this week.

So—who do you go with? Before diving into an examination of some of the options…

How about a little information about the course and weather?

The Northern Trust will be held at the Ridgewood Country Club in Paramus, New Jersey. The course is a par-71 and 7,319 yards long. The rough is expected to be a little on the thick side which could mean guys with power have a slight edge.

If all goes well, the weather may not play much of a factor (if any). The change of rain will go from 50 percent on Wednesday to zero for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. But on Sunday, there will be a small chance of rain (ten percent). The skies will be partly cloudy on Saturday but otherwise clear.

Temperatures will be in the low to mid-70s with a high of 78 degrees on Sunday.

Winds could play a factor on Day One (10 MPH) but will be much lighter on Friday (5 MPH). They will, however, pick up again over the weekend (8 MPH on Saturday and 9 PMH on Sunday).

The Players

You wouldn’t be wrong to go with last year’s champ, Dustin Johnson. He’s the No. 1 golfer in the world for a reason. He has three wins under his belt this season and has finished in the top ten in ten of the 16 events he’s played in. If you want someone you can rely on to score well for your daily fantasy roster– he’s the best.

fedexcup

But one player does not make a fantasy roster. The following are some other players to consider:

Tiger Woods: I’ve waffled on Tiger some this year, but at this point in the season I think I’m all in. For the first time in five years, he’s qualified for the playoffs. He’s playing well right now, and there probably isn’t a player on tour hungrier for a win than him. This will only be his second trip to Ridgewood (t12 in 2010). He’s coming off his best tournament of the season and would love to build off that success.

Francesco Molinari: He’s not the guy that fair-weather fans are going to know much about, but he is playing well right now. He’s won two of his last five tour stops, tied for second at one and finished tied for sixth at another. His game matches up well with Ridgewood making him a good pick this week.

Rafa Cabrera Bello: Besides having a name that is just fun to say (go ahead and say it with your best Spanish accent now), his game appears to be peaking at just the right time. After his stinker of a performance at the British Open (74th; 8-over), his play has gotten better with each passing week. He’s only had two rounds of 70 or more in his last 12 and none in his previous seven.

Dark Horse Candidates

Jordan Spieth: He’s a great golfer, but one that has been hard to trust this season. But after turning in a good weekend at the PGA Championship, he may be ready to break out. May cost too much to take a flier on, but if you want to roll the dice on someone, you could do worse.

Tyler Duncan: Rookies outside of the top 100 seldom make it past the opening weekend of the FedEx Cup playoffs. Duncan is currently 108th in points, but with his tee-to-green game, if he can get control of his putting, he could reverse the trend. However, it is worth noting that he missed the cut last week and has missed it 13 times this season (30 events). Prior to last week, he had made the previous 12.

Sam Ryder: Like Duncan, he is playing well enough during his rookie campaign, but his point total is 114th. He too has missed quite a few cuts, 11 of 25 events, but his game is described as being even more accurate than Duncan’s. But like Duncan, his putting game needs work.

Both Duncan and Ryder sound like guys who have the potential for good days but could very well throw out stinkers, too. If you go with one or both of these guys, the rest of your roster better be studs.

What a finish at the PGA Championship last week, right? Wow! Of course, now the question on everyone’s mind demands an answer even more—is Tiger Woods back? Can we say that with confidence now? Or could he implode the next time he takes the course?

We will not find out this week. But what we will see at the Wyndham Championship is a bunch of guys trying to make sure they are in the top 125 of the FedEx Cup standings. So, the fair-weather daily fantasy player may not recognize a lot of the names.

But before diving into an examination of some of those names…

How about a little information about the course and weather?

The Wyndham Championship takes place at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina. It’s a par-70 course that is 7,127 yards long. From what the experts say, it is one of the most straightforward courses in the country.

What does that mean? Look for prototypical ball strikers and expect some low scores.

About that weather—it’s not going to be good. Temperatures will be in the high-70s to low 80s (which isn’t bad). But it is going to be partly cloudy on Thursday and a chance of thunderstorms for the rest of the weekend.

The chance of rain will be at a low of 20 percent on Thursday before jumping up to a high of 60 percent on Friday. It drops to 50 percent on Saturday and 40 percent on Sunday.

It could get ugly.

The Players

I would be foolish not to put Henrik Stenson’s name out there. The man only shot a tournament record 258 last year (62-66-66-64). Incredible, right? However, while he has made the cut in 11 of 13 tournaments this year and placed in the top ten five times, he is not playing well right now.

He tied for 35th at the British Open, tied for 39th at the WGC-Bridgestone, and missed the cut last week at the PGA Championship. Feeling some discomfort in his elbow certainly didn’t help last week. So, if you are thinking about going with him, check on his health first.

Wyndham golf advice

The following are some other players worth considering for your daily fantasy lineups:

•    Webb Simpson: Ask around about ball strikers and Webb Simpson will be one of the first people mentioned. Just about every expert and major publication online is recommending Simpson. He hasn’t been playing great lately, but he is playing well. Combine that with his history (which is excellent) at Sedgefield, and you have the makings of a remarkable run.
•    Daniel Berger: You have to love a guy who can start a tournament 6-over just on the front nine, but then come back to finish tied for 12th (which he did last week at Bellerive). He’s been an up-and-down player this season. But if you like to ride a hot hand, he’s your guy.
•    Rafa Cabrera Bello:  He’s finished as well as tied for third and as poorly as 74th. So he’s capable but inconsistent. Lately, he seems to be on and playing well. Last week, he finished tied for tenth; previous week tied for 17th. He may not be great, but he’s playing well, and his game is well-suited for this course. He’ll probably not win, but he is going to play well
•    Buyer Beware Option: Hideki Matsuyama— It’s been a few weeks since he’s played well and that concerns me. He tied for 35th last week and 39th the week before. At the British Open, he missed the cut. He could be in for a turnaround, or the cold streak could continue.
•    Dark Horse Options: Joaquin Niemann, Shane Lowry,  Johnson Wagner, Ollie Schniederjans, and C.T. Pan

We’re talking about the last major of the year, so that alone will have guys bringing their ‘A’ game. But it also happens to be the 100th edition of the PGA Championship making a win just a little sweeter. As is the case with every Major, the best of the best golfers in the world will be taking part.

So, from a daily fantasy perspective, there are going to be plenty of options this week at the Bellevire Country Club. But before diving into an examination of some of the options…

How about a little information about the course and weather?

The Bellevire Country Club is located in Town and Country, Missouri. It’s a par-70 course that is 7,329 yards long. It’s one of the longest courses to host the PGA Championship in the history of the tournament.

As for the weather, it could get a little tricky this weekend. Thursday and Friday shouldn’t be too bad. Thursday is going to be partly cloudy with a 20 percent chance of rain. Friday is expected to have clear skies but also a 20 percent chance of rain. Winds are going to be stronger Thursday (8 MPH) than Friday (4 MPH).

But weather conditions could get a little crazy on Saturday and Sunday. Temps are expected to be in the high 70s with winds topping out at 6 MPH.  However, there is a chance of thunderstorms on both days with a 40 percent chance of rain Saturday and 60 percent on Sunday.

The Players

It’s not often where the stars align just right to make it easy to pick out a favorite player for a tournament. But they have aligned this week. You’d be foolish not to start the defending champion, Justin Thomas.

Not only is he one of the best in the world, but he is playing well right now (just won last week). Oh—and his game fits well with the layout at Bellivire. It’s a long course, but a straightforward one. It doesn’t get tricky or anything. It just requires guys to hit it long, hard, and accurate.

Last week at Firestone, Thomas was third in driving, tied for second in greens hit, and was first in proximity. Yeah, he’s going to do well this week.

PGA Championship advice

Some other guys worth considering include:

Dustin Johnson: There is a reason why the man is the No. 1 golfer in the world—he’s good. Not just good but good no matter where he plays. He has missed the cut once in his last five tournaments (British Open). But he placed first in two of the others and third in the remaining two (tied for third in one). He may not be driving as well as Thomas but there is no arguing with his results.

Brooks Koepka: He had a bit of a hiccup at the RBC Canadian Open but righted the ship pretty well at Firestone last week. His fifth-place finish was his fourth top-ten of the year. He was one of the leaders in distance and led the field in strokes gained. His game matches up well with Bellevire.

Rory McIlroy: He’s had some moments this season that was not very good but lately appears to be getting closer and closer to putting it all together. He missed the cut at the U.S. Open but otherwise finished t8 (Memorial), t12 (Travelers), t6 (CVS Health), t2 (British Open), and t6 (WGC-Bridgestone). He’s struggled in the later rounds at the Majors this season but don’t be shocked if he puts it all together this week.

Dark Horse Candidates: Jason Day, Tony Finau, Francesco Molinari, and Thorbjørn Olesen.

Buyer Beware: Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods; both are excellent golfers, but you can’t trust either to put four strong rounds together in a given weekend.

After spending the last couple weekends out of the country, the PGA Tour returns to the U.S. this week. The action this week will be at the Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio. But it will not be the usual slate of golfers.

This week, since it’s an ‘invitational’ there will only be 73 golfers to choose from—including the entire top 50 in the world– for your daily fantasy team. But before diving into an examination of some of the options…

How about a little information about the course and weather?

The players will be playing the South Course at the Firestone Country Club. It is a par-70 course that is 7,400 meters long.

It’s been a bit toasty in recent weeks in the Midwest, but that does not appear to be the case for the Bridgestone Invitational. Temperatures are expected to be in the mid to high 70s each of the four days. Saturday is the only day expected to have clear skies. The rest are either going to be cloudy or mostly cloudy.

There will be a chance of rain every day starting with a 30 percent chance on Thursday. It drops to 20 percent on Friday and Saturday. But then jumps up to 50 percent on Sunday.

It could get ugly out there, but hey—no one said it was going to be easy.

The Players

A case could be made for including last year’s champion, Hideki Matsuyama. He’s not having a bad year having made the cut in 11 of the 14 events he’s played in. He missed the cut at the British Open and Players Championship. But between them, he finished t16, t13, and t16.

He hasn’t been bad but this week I think there are too many good options to consider going with an alright one.

Tiger Woods: Come on—how can you not go with Tiger this week? The stars are aligned for him to get that first elusive win of his comeback. He’s still not playing as good as we’d like him to play. But he could play well enough to win if everything goes right. He’s certainly going to be in the perfect place; one where he’s won eight times.

wgc bridgestone

It’s been about five years since his last win. Will he finally get one? You don’t want to be the one guy who didn’t start him if he does.

Justin Rose: He’s like Tiger in that he should know this course like the back of his hand. After all, the man has only played it 12 times. He’s finished inside of the top five on four occasions but never in first. He’s playing very well right now having finished t2, t10, t6, and in first his last four times out.

Dustin Johnson: It almost feels like cheating to suggest him since he is coming off a win and is the No. 1 golfer in the world. But he did win here just a couple years ago. However, it is also worth noting that in his seven other trips his best finish was t15.

Rory McIlroy: I know he’s supposed to be one of the best in the world. But whenever I think about starting him he tends to tank. But I think I’m starting him this week. It bugs me that he’s missed four cuts this season but there is no cut line this week. That being said, he’s fresh off finishing t2 at the British Open.

He appears to be playing well right now and could be worth a start.

Jordan Spieth: This is the only guy I would say don’t start. I know he’s a good golfer and good golfers are bound to break out of their slumps.  But I’m not confident he’ll do it this week or anytime soon. He may give you three really good rounds but that last one on Sunday will kill you.

Dark Horse Options: Tommy Fleetwood, Xander Schauffele, Thorbjørn Olesen, and Bubba Watson.
