Recapping the Genesis Open and Previewing the Honda Classic

By Mike Moore - 6 years ago in Entertainment

Recapping the Genesis Open and Previewing the Honda Classic

While many of the young guns were dormant this weekend at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, a member of the old guard found himself in the mix late Sunday Afternoon at the Genesis Open. Bubba Watson, who’s inconsistent play had him considering retirement less than a year ago, finished off this stacked field with a final round 69 to claim the two-stroke victory over Kevin Na and Tony Finau.

Watson hadn’t sniffed the winner’s circle since this very tournament in 2016, but picked a perfect time to remind daily fantasy golf players how his fun and unpredictable play can influence many of FanDuel and DraftKings contests. His -12 didn’t break any DFS scoring records by any means, but his penchant for the dramatic provides quite the roller coaster ride for anyone who has him in their lineup each week. Now that he’s stuck pay dirt once again, the $7800 price tag he could be had for is likely to climb.

Not Ready to Roar Quite Yet

Tiger Woods didn’t have the best odds to win entering Thursday, and by unceremoniously missing the cut, he’ll continue to be available cheap until he finds the magic to his game once again. Fellow old-timer Phil Mickelson however, continued turning back the clock, posting another top ten finish.

Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, and Justin Thomas didn’t play a factor this weekend. Johnson faded on Sunday, a trend he hopes doesn’t continue if he wants to remain tops in the world. Spieth and Thomas had solid top ten finishes, but didn’t necessarily light the course on fire with their play. All three though will assuredly be chalk picks in any tournament they enter throughout this PGA season. Many of the recommended sleeper and value picks prior to the tournament fell out of contention early, but Tony Finau continued to cement his place among the world’s elite with his stellar showing.

A Homecoming for Many of Golf’s Greatest

The PGA Tour will journey across the country for this weekend’s Honda Classic in Palm Beach, Florida. PGA National represents somewhat of a home course for the likes of Thomas and last year’s champ, Rickie Fowler. While both will cost daily fantasy players a good chunk of their salary, they have good odds for victory at the storied course.

The tournament welcomes 10 of the world’s top 25, so four-day contest lineups can be built in a variety of ways. Sergio Garcia is making his first US start of 2018, and has classically played well here. Rory McIlroy will play in back-to-back weeks after taking it relatively easy with a rib injury late last year. Alexander Noren looks to make an impact this weekend as he hopes to ascend toward the top 10 himself.

There are several quality players available for a decent drafting price this week. Ollie Schniederjans has the style of play that could see him finally notch a win after playing so well early this season. Woods is very comfortable at this course, and after working off some rust in LA this past week, could find himself with ample birdie opportunities. Adam Scott, who won the tournament two years ago is available on DraftKings for a steal at $7700, but his play so far this year has been inconsistent.
