The Chalk had a very nice Masters and now it’s time to move on to the next important golf tournament of the year – the PGA Championship.

Let’s do a quick flashback of the Masters.

 

Here, Matt and I will give out the players were targeting on DraftKings and include the different bets and prop plays were making.

If you’re new to DFS golf and want to get started I would suggest checking out my boy Joe Holka. He has a quick and easy course on how to be successful at DFS golf below.

DraftKings Plays:

*It’s important to remember that the best way to have success in DFS golf is to have all six players in your lineup make the cut. Yes, it’s a pretty simple strategy, but not everyone is focused on selecting players that will make the cut. Keep that in mind. 

Jordan Spieth $8.6K 

I know, I know. This is an ugly play for me. BUT, I’m riding with Spieth this week, who is just $8.6K. It feels like every tournament, Spieth starts off hot and then fizzles out. I’m hoping there is no fizzle this week. The hope is that Spieth has finally figured out his short game. Last week, he ranked 6th in putts per GIR.

Bryson DeChambeau $8.9K 

Another pricey player here… Yet, I’m rolling with DeChambeau this week. He’s still looking to win his first major championship and that could be this week. His odds to win the 2019 PGA Championship are 25-1, more on that later. He’s currently the No. 8 golfer in the world and 6th in strokes gained off the tee.

Cheaper Targets 

-Ryan Fox $6.6K

-JB Holmes $6.6K  (will forever be my guy)

My Grandpa’s Pick: Tiger Woods: “Nobody is playing better.” Thanks, Tom Cat.

Matt

Brooks Koepka $10.4k

It’s a high price to pay but it’s well worth it. Koepka is unflappable and god damn can he crush the ball of the tee – something necessary to win on the Black Course. He’s the defending PGA Championship winner along with his US Open in 2018 and was in the hunt before falling short to Tiger at Augusta last month. He’s the kind of guy you have confidence in sinking a 12-foot bender for birdie and he’s unquestionably the most consistent golfer on the tour. He’s priced 4th overall this weekend which does give room a bit to spend elsewhere.

Tony Finau $8.8k

I will never not have this guy in my DFS lineups as long as he is under $9k. He’s a birdie machine – he’s a risk taker who much like the more methodical Koepka can also rip the ball off the tee. His length there will keep him in the hunt to score a few birds and as you know stringing birdies is the name of the game in DFS. He can win this event – he’s shown up on big stage before and I still can’t get over the fact the guy played outstanding golf at The Masters in 2018 with an ungodly dislocated ankle. He’s fun to root for and can throw up some great numbers this week.

Cheaper Targets

-Sung Kang $7.2k

Won Byron Nelson last week. In 2016 Barclays at Bethpage Black finished T-18 but did shoot 1st Rd. 68 and Final Rd. 64.

-Emiliano Grillo $7.1k

Finished T-2; 66 final round at the 2012 Barclays at Bethpage Black.
