Recapping the RBC and Picks for Valero Texas Open
Expert Picks for Valero Texas Open
Though many of the PGA regulars took the week to rest after a competitive Masters tournament, the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, South Carolina still managed to provide an exciting weekend for daily fantasy golf enthusiasts. Continuing the trend set early this season, Satoshi Kodaira needed three extra holes to hold off Si Woo Kim and capture victory.
Pre tournament favorites Dustin Johnson and Matt Kuchar put up mediocre numbers, while Marc Leishman and Paul Casey both missed the cut. Because of this, a slew of mid range players had the opportunity to break out and make a name for themselves on DraftKings and FanDuel.
Competitive Play at Harbour Town
Only a few players carried a lofty price tag heading into this weekend’s event in South Carolina, meaning those with the chutzpah to get creative with their picks could really cash in. As the winner and runner-up, Kodaira and Kim could be drafted for peanuts on either FanDuel or DraftKings. Other top finishers such as Bryson DeChambeau, Webb Simpson, and Billy Horschel were available for a decent price.
DK Legends value picks did fairly well at the RBC, depending on how they complimented the other picks in a lineup. Those starting Matthew Fitzpatrick, Kevin Streelman, or Ollie Schniederjans may not have selected the eventual champion, but their middle of the pack finishes provided many of lineups the points needed to make an impact in four-day contests. Unfortunately, Adam Hadwin, who many felt could have a chance to win with his consistent play so far this year, had to withdraw just before Thursday.
Taking Advantage of Thinner Fields
This weekend’s Valero Texas Open at the TPC in San Antonio will host a veteran field, as many of the young guns of the PGA are resting for more impactful tournaments upcoming. Players such as Brandt Snedeker, Bill Haas, and Pat Perez will look to tackle the tough, windy course that has been known to cause fits to anyone not careful off the tee box.
While higher priced players like Matt Kuchar and Adam Scott haven’t provided DFS players a ton of scoring so far this season, some of the lesser known players looking to climb the world rankings or make a Ryder Cup squad will hope to capitalize. Xander Schauffele, Brendan Steele, and Ryan Moore are just a few who could use this weekend to make their mark.
Charley Hoffman and Billy Horschel are two players who enjoy playing this tough Texas course, as they each have placed in the top five multiple years, including a win for Hoffman in 2016. Defending champ Kevin Chappell may not be lighting courses on fire as of late, but he represents another option for those building a lineup based on course experience.
