RSM Classic PGA DFS Lineup Tips
This week, the pro’s of the PGA head to the east coast for a tournament in Sea Island, Georgia. There are plenty of options for you to join in the fun and play some Daily Fantasy Sports over at FanDuel and Fantasy Draft. We have picked out our top 10 golfers for the week that we will using in our DFS lineups.
Chesson Hadley – It is really hard to tell if Hadley is going to low owned this week or not but I will be playing him across the board on my DFS lineups, as well as he is also in my handicapping article. The reason I think he “may” go low owned is because he withdrew from last week’s OHL Classic but he had legitimate reason. Let’s just say he ate something or drank something in Mexico and it didn’t set well with his stomach. That was a week ago and he is back to normal and should get back to his normal ways. Don’t let 1 withdraw hold a bias against him, it was the first time he has ever withdrew from a tournament. Don’t overthink this….put him in your lineups!
Webb Simpson – If you are playing GPP’s then Simpson could be your golden nugget this week. He is $9400 on FanDuel and most people will play the home field advantage with Haas at $9200 and save a few bucks. I legitimately think that Simpson is the class of this tournament and should be there at the end. He has never missed the cut at Sea Island Resort and is a great option in not only GPP’s but also great for Cash Game options.
Ollie Schniederjans – Ollie almost made the cut for both articles this week but I pulled back on betting him. That being said, I will be using Ollie in some of my FanDuel lineups because of his pricing. Ollie is only $8500 on FanDuel, which is absurd! For starters, the only reason he is cheaper than Harmon, Haas and Johnson is because he is coming off a short break in action (over a month) and Harmon is the hometown guy. Ollie absolutely should be priced at around $9k or higher in this weak field. He will make the cut and should contend top 5 and I will use him in my well rounded lineups.
Charles Howell – Howell did make both of our lists as I truly believe he has a chance, a very good chance at winning this tournament. Howell has great course history here at Sea Island Resort and is also in good overall recent form. He will play well here!
William McGirt – McGirt is from South Carolina so he is familiar with the Georgia golf courses. He is coming off a 10th place finish at Shriners and 25th at Sanderson Farms. McGirt checks the boxes for top 50 in Greens in Reg, Strokes Gained: Putting, Strokes Gained: Tee-To-Green and Scrambling. I like McGirt a lot this week for DFS.
Scott Brown – Brown has made the cut in 3 of the 4 tries at Sea Island and has finished as high as 4th place back in 2014. All three of his cuts have been inside the top 20 and he sets up really nice for a big week here. Brown is in good course history with top 6 place finishes in 2 out of the last 3 tournaments.
Whee Kim – Kim has made the cut in his last 4 tournaments straight. He has played here in Georgia two times and made the cut both times. Kim is a great putter and does well in scrambling. He is a great cheaper option.
Patrick Rodgers – Rodgers has been hit or miss so I would only play him in GPP’s but he has the ability and talent to contend in this tournament. He has a 10th and a 44th place finish in his two tries here and should have a good tournament this year if his putting can stay consistent.
Camilo Villegas – Villegas finished 2nd here last year and has made the cut in all 5 tries at Sea Island Resort in the RSM Classic. He is also in good form overall, making the cut in the last 5 tournaments he has played in. He is a great option at a lower price.
Cameron Percy – Percy has made the cut in the last three tournaments and is one of the best value’s on the board. He is cheap and has the potential to hit the top 20 in this weaker field.
