PGA DFS 3M Open
Talor Gooch (FD: $8,700, DK: $7,100)
This is one of my favorite value plays on both sites this weekend. Besides having a fantastic last name, Mr. Gooch is coming off of an awful Memorial tournament last weekend missing the cut and tying for 75th. I think this will lead a lot of players away from him because some only look at past results while building lineups. He’s played in every tournament (6 straight) since the restart so we know there’s not a ton of rust, just needs to take advantage of his price this course. Our projections (check out the cheat-sheet) have Gooch around 62 FP and around a 7.12 value pt/$. He’s currently trending at only 0.70% Chance to win but anything can happen and even if he doesn’t win he could be on the winning lineup.
Troy Merritt (FD: $9,100, DK: $7,500)
Merritt is coming off of a 108 finish last weekend so he should really go under the radar. The plus side is he finished 7th here last year and could be a great play over on DK. We had some exposure to him last week and he just fell apart in round 2 along with a lot of bigger names that MC as well. Merritt is fantastic off the tee (check the cheat-sheet for SG) and he’s not a bad putter either. If he can continue on here he should have a great weekend. He’s made 11/17 cuts and besides last weekend, he finished in 22nd at the Workday Charity Open and 8th place the weekend before at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. He’s currently at 10% chance at a Top 10 and a 20% Chance at a Top 20 finish. You can pair both Merritt and Gooch up and pay up for some other golfers and make a run at the bacon.
Bernd Wiesberger (FD: $8,800, DK: $7,200):
We haven’t seen much of him and he did miss the cut last week but let’s not dwell on the past. He’s a significant ball striker and could fair well on this course. He hasn’t played this course as they only played it last year and he placed 105 last week. He should be well off everyone’s radar and we can take advantage of that in a GPP lineup this week. He’s currently projected at 4% ownership, 8% chance at a Top 10, and 17% chance of Top 20 finish. I won’t have a TON of exposure to him, but he will make a couple of our lineups this weekend.
Harris English (FD: $10,800, DK: $9,000):
Currently English has the 7th best chance to win this at 2.20%. He’s at a 19% chance at a Top 10 finish and a 33% chance to finish in the Top 20 of all golfers this weekend. He has back to back Top 20 finishes. He took 13th last weekend at the Memorial and 17th place back in june at the RBC Heritage. He took off about a month between those (testing positive for COVID-19) and now he comes in here as one of the favorites to win. He currently is 14th on the PGA tour in ball striking and Vegas has him at a 33/1 chance to win.
Doc Redman (FD: $9,900, DK: $8,700):
Doc is currently ranked as the 20th best golfer off the tee and 2nd best golfer on the approach. He’s coming off of a 107th finish and a Missed Cut last weekend and if you’re looking into history, you’ll see he finished in 134th at this course last year. We currently have him at around 19% ownership with a 1.40% chance to win, 12% chance at a Top 10, and 25% chance at a Top 20 finish. In 18 rounds of golf since the restart, Redman has +27 strokes gained over the field and his is a fantastic course for that type of golfer. I love him as both cash/gpp play this weekend.
PGA DFS 3M Open
Lucas Glover (FD: $10,600, DK: $9,400):
Glover is the face of consistency. Besides last weekend where he only had 48.9 FP on FD, Glover had at least 80 FP in every contest since the restart. He finished tied for 7th last year on this course and currently sits as the 9th best player to win this weekend. I’m actually really surprised that he isn’t higher priced on DK than this. I like him on both sites regardless of his FD price.
Patrick Rodgers (FD: $9,800, DK: $8,200):
He’s been playing some really good golf recently regardless of last week’s +5 fourth round that still ended in an 18th place finish. Rodgers is fantastic off the tee and one of the elite putters and if he can get everything going this week, watch out. We have him currently projected out at only 10% ownership and Vegas has him at a 1.20% to win, 12% chance at a Top 10 finish and 23% chance at a Top 20 finish. I think he makes a fantastic GPP play this weekend.
My Core Plays:

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.
