Nick Taylor (FD: $7,200, DK: $6,100):
If you’re building multiple lineups, and want to fit some bigger/high-priced golfers you’re going to have to find value plays. Taylor is super accurate off the tee and hits a ton of greens in regulation as well. All of his shots are trending exactly where they should and we should be getting some positive trends in his putter any day now. 2 years ago Taylor finished in 30th on this course and he just makes a ton of sense at a value standpoint this weekend.
Joaquin Niemann (FD: $8,800, DK: $7,400):
We’ve used him in the past so we have had exposure to him before. I love when he’s at a value standpoint in a no cut event as well. Currently Neimann comes into this weekend ranking 35th in Par 4 and 12th in approach. As a value pick, he also makes too much sense for us to not have him in a tournament lineup this weekend. He hits his irons incredibly well. I’m not 100% sure if I would even like him if we were facing a possible cut, so put his exposure lower in your GPP lineups, but at least a couple of the lineups you create this weekend.
Jon Rahm (FD: $12,000, DK: $11,400):
Rahm comes in a a slight overall favorite to win it all at 6.80%. He also has a 41% chance at a Top 10 and a 60% chance to make the Top 20% of all golfers this weekend. He has played this course just once (last year) and finished in 7th place. Rahm didn’t play last week but 2 weeks ago he took home the win at The Memorial and could be in store for a great 4 rounds of golf this weekend. I don’t think you could go wrong picking either Rahm or Rory this week. Not much salary difference on either site but Rahm is just on fire lately.
Paul Casey (FD: $8,800, DK: $7,800):
Man oh man. Casey has been super frustrating for us recently as we have paid up for him and he has back to back missed cuts that really hurt us. He has played well on this course in the past and has a lot of positive upsides with what I expect to be low ownership after crapping the bed back to back weeks. He’s on a lot of people’s list but even in those two tournaments that he missed the cut, Casey gained almost 7 strokes in striking. He has 2 wins on Bermuda Grass and his ball striking ability should come in clutch here, with all of the hazards and all that this course provides.

Tommy Fleetwood (FD: $9,900, DK: $8,700):
Now we know he sucked it up for us last week and just couldn’t get anything going. He ended up missing the cut and screwing our lineups. This is why he simply is a GPP option for me this week. If you’re a player who only makes 1 or 2 lineups I wouldn’t put him in there, but he just makes too much sense if you make multiple GPP lineups. Currently he has around 2.10% chance of winning this tournament along with 21% chance to make the Top 10 and 39% chance to make it in the Top 20 of all golfers this weekend. He’s only played this course once which was in 2019 where we saw him finish in 4th place. With no worries of being cut, I like our chances that he gives us enough value.
Sungjai Im (FD: $8,900, DK: $7,500):
Love me some Im in a GPP. Love him even more knowing he won’t be cut and can rack up the FP for us. He’s been terrible with his irons lately which stinks, but overall his Iron game and SG Approach has been great. He’s a little cheaper here than what we are used to seeing him and if he can get his entire game going for just a weekend, he could be scoring quite well for us.
My Core Plays:
*All information used for each hole is brought to you by pgatour.com
So these are just some of the plays that we like. Our CheatSheet has a TON of useful information to look at!
REMEMBER: These are lineups we use, but feel free to pick and choose plays and make your own lineups. Don’t ALWAYS follow these as they don’t hit 100% of the time. We do use these but sometimes late scratches happen and it’s too late to update the lineup. Good luck and bring home the bacon.
