Just like that, the Olympics has been and gone and Golf can start to return to a somewhat normal schedule.
Justin Rose is an Olympic Gold medalist following a very solid performance in Rio and a wonderful pitch on 18 to seal it.
Henrik Stenson was very good again but looked injured over the weekend and lacked a killer punch.
Matt Kuchar did the typical Matt Kuchar thing and won a bronze medal without once contending over the four days. Classic Kuch!
This week we move across to the Wyndham Championship for our DFS preview that will take place at Sedgefield.
Yes that’s right, good ol’ Davis Love won this event last year!
This time around despite not having the likes od Day, Spieth, McIlroy and Johnson set to play the field is surprisingly solid especially after the Olympics in Brazil. A good chunk of that field is set to back-up again here.
Sedgefield: A relatively short course by PGA standards with eight of 12 Par 4’s falling between 400 and 450 yards.
Greens are small but will play fast if the rain stays away and the fairways while not integral to hit will be helpful in giving golfers the best possible chance to attack these greens.
See below for all of the winners since this event moved here.
Best DFS value plays
Brandt Snedeker ($9,800 DraftKings)
Snedeker is a birdie maker in solid form with great course history (made six of eight cuts and made the top 10 three times).
Other top-end players we like to build your team around are Webb Simpson, Patrick Reed (FanSports only) and Ryan Moore who are both around that 10,000 mark on DraftKings.
Jon Rahm ($8,100 FanSports)
Rahm is still under priced with these Aussie DFS guys so if you can, you’ve simply got to play him! He’s in the Top 10 in all the betting markets and averaging 25-35% more points than all of the other players around him on the FanSports pricing board.
Luke Donald ($7,000 DraftKings)
This is the perfect Luke Donald course and his form is better than his odds and his fantasy price suggests!
Camillo Villegas ($6,400 DraftKings)
He is a past winner here but granted, he’s had an awful season and just doesn’t seem to be the player he once was. This weekend has big impact on his future tour cards and starts and he’s worth a flyer in GPP if it all clicks on a familiar surface.
Rafael Cabrera-Bello ($6,500 FanSports)
To put this simply, here is our PLAY OF THE WEEKEND. Simply a mistake in pricing we must take advantage of.
Wesley Bryan is also well underpriced on FanSports and worth throwing in some lineups!
