PGA DFS The Memorial Tournament Open
Kevin Streelman (FD: $9,300, DK: $7,600):
Streelman is currently the 24th best odds to win this week so he is currently a fantastic value pick. Per rotowire: Streelman went into the weekend at 10-under-par and three back of the lead, but lost pace with the leaders after rounds of 71 and 72 the last two days. Streelman struck it well again, however, ranking top-three in both driving accuracy and greens in regulation. He was also 12th in SG: Putting. This is his second straight top-10 finish after his runner-up a couple weeks ago at the Travelers. Streelman will look for continued success at Muirfield Village next week at the Memorial.
Adam Hadwin (FD: $9,200, DK: $7,400):
Hadwin came in 35th last weekend. He started off with a great 1st round of -6, but was above par in rounds 2 and 3 before carding a -4 on Sunday. Hadwin is currently around a 6 pt/$ over on Fanduel so he might be a better option over on DK as he’s only $7,400. The odds are in his favor to win this as he only is a 0.70% chance to win. He hasn’t gotten in the top 15 of this tournament since 2015 where he ended up in 11th place.
Gary Woodland (FD: $10,100, DK: $8,600):
He’s coming off a fantastic 5th place finish here last weekend. After carding a +1 on Thursday he followed up with -13 through the last 3 rounds. He comes into Thursday with a 1.70% chance to win, 17% chance to make the Top 10 and 30% chance to make the Top 20 of all golfers this weekend. He’s up there in price so if you pair him with DeChambeau, you’ll have to find some deeper value plays this weekend.
Hideki Matsuyama (FD: $10,900, DK: $9,400):
He’s currently trending as the 10th best player who has the best odds to win this tournament this weekend. He has a 2.60% chance to win it all while a nice 22% chance at Top 10 finish and 38% chance of coming in the Top 20 of all golfers. His price reflect that as well on both FD and DK as they are both lower than this past weekend. In the Workday Charity Open he started off super hot carding a -5 in Round 1 and a -4 in round 2 before imploding over the weekend. Saturday saw him card an Even 72 and Sunday saw a +1. In 2019 Matsuyama finished in 6th place along with 13th place back in 2018.
Collin Morikawa (FD: $11,300, DK: $10,000):
Last week was Morikawa’s first time playing the course and boy did he not disappoint. Ended up winning it all and we cashed in with it. That being said, the course is changing this week with faster greens and taller roughs. Morikawa currently has the 6th best odds to win it all again this week even with all of the changes. I’m not saying he’s going to repeat, and I’m not saying he’ll be in a ton of my lineups but after last week he has to be in some of them.
PGA DFS The Memorial Tournament Open
Bryson DeChambeau (FD: $12,000, DK: $11,100):
After winning 2 weeks ago and then taking last week off, DeChambeau comes into this tournament as the favorite. Bryson didn’t play this course last year but came in 22nd in 2018 and won it in 2017 along with 38th place in 2015. His last 4 tournaments he has gotten in the 10 Top (1st, 6th, 8th, 3rd.) He’s absolutely on fire and there’s no way you don’t take a shot in at least one of your lineups this week. If you put him in your lineups, you’ll have to find some value plays and there are plenty to find within our cheat-sheets.
Xander Schauffele (FD: $10,800, DK: $9,200):
Schauffele comes in currently with the 11th best odds to win this weekend. Schauffele played last week and ended up in 14th place. That makes back to back 14th place at this course and his price has dropped on both FD and DK this week compared to last week. If you want to see all of Xander’s Strokes Gained over the past few rounds, you can find them on our cheat sheet under Strokes gained tab.
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.
