The Course

 

July 9 – 12, 2020
Muirfield Village GC – Dublin, OH
Par: 72, Yards: 7,392
Purse: $6,200,000
 
 
 
 

Previous Winner:

 

This is the first year for this event.


Hole 1:

Par 4: 799 Yards

*A slight dogleg right, from an elevated tee to a wide fairway, which slopes from right to left. Bunkers in the driving area will catch a sliced or pushed drive, and a hook or pull might find a creek threading through the woods that lines the left side of the hole. The green is the largest on the course, with four traps guarding it left, right and rear.

 
0% Eagles
16% Birdies
68% Par
15% Bogey
1% 2+ Bogey
 
AVERAGE SCORE: 4.042

Hole 2:

*A creek flanks the entire right side of the hole from 100 yards out and abuts the right edge and rear of the green. Trees impede the approach of a drive hit too far left, and the green is bunkered front right and rear left. Thus, the player must drive and approach towards water, and accuracy is at a premium. One of the tougher par 4s.

Par 4: 458 Yards

0% Eagle

14% Birdie

70% Par

13% Bogey

2% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.036


Hole 3:

*A downhill drive to a generous fairway, then an approach over a lake to a small, two-tiered green cut into a hillside. A drive too far left might find a creek at the wood-line, leaving nowhere to drop out to permit a clear shot to the green. Water awaits the weak approach, while sand awaits the over-hit shot. One of Muirfield’s most scenically spectacular holes, and tougher than it looks.

Par 4: 394 Yards

0% Eagle

20% Birdie

64% Par

13% Bogey

3% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.997


Hole 4:

*This first of the four par 3s slopes gently downhill to a long, narrow, heavily-bunkered green cut into a hillside. The disaster area is the wooded depression left of the green. Rolling hillsides framing the entire right side of the hole offer ideal viewing areas for spectators. A strong test of long-iron play.

Par 3: 187 Yards

0% Eagle

12% Birdie

68% Par

19% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.086


Hole 5:

*Downhill again from the tee, between wooded hillsides to a wide, level fairway. Then the fun starts. Some 300 yards out, a creek bordering the left side of the hole swings into the fairway, which it then bisects all the way to the green. The creek finally becomes a moat around the entire left side of the green, which is bunkered right and left rear. The green is small and one of the most undulating on the course. Altogether, an unusual and demanding hole.

Par 5: 521 Yards

0% Eagle

23% Birdie

68% Par

8% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 2.856


Hole 6:

*A cluster of bunkers cut into the left hillside and a strategically placed fairway bunker to the right put a premium on the accurate tee shot. The ideal line is the left center of the fairway, leaving a clear shot across water and sand to a medium-size green. A challenging hole that can require a long-iron or even a wooden-club second shot against wind.

Par 4: 441 Yards

0% Eagle

19% Birdie

66% Par

13% Bogey

2% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.093


Hole 7:

*An exposed, elevated, bunker-lined, double-dogleg hole, reachable in two for only the longest hitters. A rough-grassed swale sweeps from the right side across in front of the green. Bunkers guard the front left and right, and rear right of the putting surface, which breaks severely off to the left towards a wooded ravine. Not an easy hole to birdie, but the farther left the conservative player is on his second shot, the easier his third becomes.

Par 5: 565 Yards

0% Eagle

40% Birdie

49% Par

9% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.701


Hole 8:

*Back to wooded country, this time dogwood, beech and hickory trees almost completely surround the second shortest of the par-3 holes. The tee shot is appealingly downhill, but the plateau green is almost entirely surrounded by sand, including a pot bunker guarding the back left. The valley between tee and green adds to the difficulty of club selection by making the hole look longer than it is.

Par 3: 159 Yards

0% Eagle

16% Birdie

67% Par

16% Bogey

1% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.018


Hole 9:

*One of Muirfield’s most challenging driving holes. Too far right from the tee and trees block the approach. Too far left and a steep, wooded hillside threatens even more serious trouble. The tilted green is spectacularly framed by a lake, a creek, a forest and a bold hillside, and must often be approached from an angled lie even off a good drive. This is a strong par 4 demanding courage and finesse from tee to cup.

Par 4: 416 Yards

0% Eagle

18% Birdie

61% Par

18% Bogey

3% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE:  4.091


Hole 10:

*The 10th has comparatively open terrain and, as with the 15th hole, is the closest thing to an uphill drive at Muirfield. Sand guards both sides of the driving zone, and a large, multi-fingered bunker fronting the green threatens the under-hit approach. A rugged hole demanding both length and precision, and one of the toughest par 4s on the second nine, especially when played into wind.

Par 4: 475 Yards

0% Eagle

11% Birdie

60% Par

26% Bogey

2% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.214


Hole 11:

*Running the length of a scenic valley between high, wooded hills, this hole is the arena of a huge amphitheater capable of comfortably accommodating many spectators. The drive is enticingly downhill to a wide fairway, but a creek cuts diagonally across the fairway at about 320 yards from the tee, then hugs it on the right before swinging left again in front of the small, elevated green. An inviting hole to gamble on, but two perfect shots are necessary to get home.

Par 5: 571 Yards

0% Eagle

31% Birdie

50% Par

15% Bogey

4% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.911


Hole 12:

*Muirfield’s favorite hole among photographers and many fans features the largest lake. The tee shot is played from a wooded hillside entirely across water to a two-tiered, kidney-shaped green cut into another hillside and set diagonally to the line of play. Bunkers flank the right front and rear left of the green. Miss it and the ball will generally find either sand or water.

Par 3: 179 Yards

0% Eagle

12% Birdie

63% Par

23% Bogey

3% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.188


Hole 13:

*The drive is downhill through a wooded chute to a narrow but normally fast-running and gently curving fairway. Finding the right half of the fairway sets up the best angle into the long and narrow green, which runs away from the player. Bunkers stretch almost the full length of the green on either side, demanding a precise approach shot, generally with a longer club.

Par 4: 441 Yards

0% Eagle

19% Birdie

62% Par

18% Bogey

2% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.029


Hole 14:

*Another downhill tee shot, once again into a wide, tree-lined valley. About 245 yards from the championship tee, a creek emerges from the left woods to border the fairway for some 40 yards before angling across it and then on down to flank the right side of the green. The green is long and narrow and heavily guarded left by several bunkers. A definite birdie opportunity, but only for the very accurate player.

Par 4: 367 Yards

0% Eagle

25% Birdie

60% Par

13% Bogey

2% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 3.919


Hole 15:

*An intriguing par 5 cut arrow-straight through the heart of a forest. The ideal drive is to the crest of the hill, from where the longer hitters should be trying to get home in two. Thwarting them will be the steep slope fronting the green, a couple of deep bunkers, and the small size of the target — not to mention the trees crowding in left and right. There will be many birdies here, but there will also be some disasters.

Par 5: 517 Yards

0% Eagle

39% Birdie

48% Par

11% Bogey

2% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.760


Hole 16:

*A fine par 3 is now an even better and more visually intimidating hole and already has produced added excitement. Redesigned in 2010 with The Presidents Cup 2013 in mind, this hole features a pond guarding the length of the green on the left. The putting surface also is smaller and turned more horizontally to the teeing ground. A front hole location is very difficult as it will sit between the water and two bunkers.

Par 3: 192 Yards

0% Eagle

15% Birdie

64% Par

18% Bogey

0% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.000


Hole 17:

*Stretching 478 yards, this redesigned hole will be a greater test off the tee. Twenty yards of fairway separate two bunkers midway leaving a mid- or short-iron to the green. A layup off the tee will leave a mid-iron, or depending on the wind, a long-iron approach to the green. The green itself is slightly elevated and on the edge of a bank above a creek with bunkers along the right and back left. An approach to the left side of the green will allow for an easier putt.

Par 4: 471 Yards

0% Eagle

11% Birdie

64% Par

21% Bogey

3% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.174


Hole 18:

*In 2013 an additional 40 yards was added to this inviting downhill tee shot to a narrowish fairway, restoring the original strategy of this excellent finishing hole. Bunkers threaten at the corner of the dogleg to the right, and a long drive hit too far left can find the creek threading the tree line or can be blocked by a cluster of black walnut trees short of the green. The approach is uphill across a swale to a large two-tiered and heavily contoured green bunkered front left, front right, left and rear right. A spectacular finishing hole capable of accommodating more than 20,000 spectators.

Par 4: 483 Yards

0% Eagle

12% Birdie

58% Par

23% Bogey

7% 2+ Bogey

AVERAGE SCORE: 4.276

 


PGA DFS Workday Charity Open DFS Picks

 

Value Plays:

 

 

Cameron Tringale (FD: $8,200, DK: $7,300):

Betting odds have Tringale at around .40% of winning this whole thing and 11% of placing in the Top 20%. I don’t think he’s going to outright win it but he could give us some value on DK. He hasn’t played this course since 2016 where he ended up in 76th place but I do like him this weekend. He’s coming off 30th place in last weekend’s tournament as well. In recent matches he has made the cut 82% of the time so he’s a value play but possibly a Tourney play as well.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Phil Mickelson (FD: $9,400, DK: $7,800):

I like Phil more on DK as his price is just better. We last saw Phil 2 weeks ago at Travelers where he ended up in 24th place. He took last weekend off so he should be a tad bit more refreshed than some other golfers. He’s had success at this course in the past but in 2019 he ended up in 98th place after coming in 13th place in 2018.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Matt Kuchar (FD: $10,300, DK: $8,500):

I’m not mad at his price again here on DK as it’s almost $2k less than on FD. Kuchar has played this course quite well except for his 84th finish last year. Besides that, he posted back to back 4th place finishes in 2016 and 2017 and has a couple of weeks off since the RBC. Recently he has made 83% of cuts and I feel he could be up for a great weekend coming up.

 

 

 


Cash Plays:

 

 

Hideki Matsuyama (FD: $11,300, DK: $10,000):

He’s currently trending as the Top 5 players who have the best odds to win this tournament this weekend. He has a 4.40% chance to win it all while a nice 27% chance at Top 10 finish and 44% chance of coming in the Top 20 of all golfers. His price reflect that as well on both FD and DK. In 2019 Matsuyama finished in 6th place along with 13 place back in 2018. Last weekend he carded under par in each round along with a -7 on Saturday. I like to pair him up with McNealy for some salary relief this weekend.

 

 

 

 

Brooks Koepka (FD: $11,500, DK: $10,400):

Koepka is another big name that is currently at the 4th best odd to win this weekend. We have him around 12-15% ownership (even more information can be found in the CheatSheet). He hasn’t played this course since 2017 where he finished in 31st place. After withdrawing due to caution with being around someone with Covid, he could be off of some people’s minds and could come in the top GPP-winning lineup. Brooks currently is the 4th best golfer in this field in driving distance with an average of 310.8 yards while hitting 70% of GIR. If he doesn’t end up winning, I see a Top 5-10 Finish and just dominating for us.

 

 

 

 

Collin Morikawa (FD: $10,600, DK: $9,200):

Listen, Morikawa has never played this course so this is another golfer to look for after practice rounds to see how they ended up. As of this writing, he has the 10th best odds to win this tournament. He’s also made 13 of the 14 cuts and he currently possesses one of the best Birdies or Better Gained stat at 4.53. I LOVE him as a play this week and also it wouldn’t surprise me if he were in the optimal lineup.

 

 


PGA DFS Workday Charity Open DFS Picks

Tournament Plays:

 

 

Marc Leishman (FD: $10,100, DK: $8,700):

We haven’t seen Leishman since the Traveler’s Championship where he ended up placing 58th with +2 in both the 3rd and 4th rounds. People could see this and shy away as we have him projected at 15% and a 15% chance to end up in the Top 10%. In the last 5 years he’s played this course he has an average finish of 19.6 and finished 5th in 2019. Cheaper play on DK and coming in around an 8 value in our projection system.

 

 

 

 

Xander Schauffele (FD: $11,200, DK: $10,200):

Schauffele comes in currently with the 6th best odds to win this weekend. He’s only played this course twice and last year came in 14th place while 2018 saw him come in 86th place. Per RotoWire: Schauffele was fourth 2 weeks ago in SG: Off-the-tee, but was 53rd in SG: Approach. He got the week off to a really strong start with a seven-under 63 in round one, but couldn’t find that same form the rest of the week. Schauffele has nine top-25’s in 11 starts this season. After taking last weekend off, look for him to start off hot and hopefully keep that momentum through the weekend.

 

 

 

Rickie Fowler (FD: $10,700, DK: $9,000):

Fowler finally golfed well last weekend ending up in 12th place at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. He has done very well at this course coming in the Top 15 for the last 3 years (14, 8, and 2nd in 2017). He’s definitely priced up but he also is currently at a 2.30% chance to win this weekend. The only downside is Fowler has missed the cut in the previous two tournaments besides last weekend so it’s a bit sketchy in that aspect. His price is high so this makes him strictly a tournament/GPP play for me this weekend.
