Boy, was last week a frustrating one for those of us following the PGA tour, and especially those playing DFS, like the $3 DraftKings Weekly Hybrid PGA.
To start, a glitch in our system kept my Thursday golf picks being posted (hence looking to publish Wednesdays, from now on), but worse, I went at my week differently, playing more out of the middle of the pros costs, and looking to players who had delivered in the past (as well as I always look for the consistency of making the cut).
And, with Charles Howell III and Jamie Lovemark in my stable, I spent the first two days of the Zurich in the money, with my score looking good, as I moved as high as the $12 return range.
And then the final round was eliminated and somewhere, somehow, I dropped from 1154 in the thick of the bucks to 3426, and just outside the range.
What can you do but pick up and try again. So, this week for the Wells Fargo, I did indeed go with a couple of the higher priced pros, but also with some crapshoots.
By the way, don't forget to check out our deal with DraftKings where you get a lot of good baseball stuff from us along with some from DraftKings. Hit the link below for details.
Rory Mcllroy ($12,800): Top ranked, rested with no play since the Masters, and ready to kick it. Normally, I would shy from the highest priced guy, but Rory is for real.
Phil Mickelson ($9800): Homer pick, for sure. Just love Phil, his rebirth, and what he can do. Not so much a logic pick as a skill one.
Kevin Kisner ($8100): Second place last year, and 10 of 12 cuts made since. Like him as competitive if nothing else.
Bryson Dechambeau ($7800): Different is good, and the bay area product is as different as one can get these days. Add in Dechambeau has made the cut three of four times thus far and I will buy the approach and weird clubs.
Roberto Castro ($5900): A bit of a longshot, but one who has made 11 of 15 cuts, who can hit the ball, and a guy I wished I had picked several times previous.
Davis Love III ($5500): Ten of ten making the cut, even though just 57.2 fantasy points per tourney average. But, you gotta hit to make the cut and Love does that, and it seems like he still has a big tourney in him.
Do remember to keep fantasy open and regulated and fair for all by writing your local lawmakers and tell them of your love of playing and desire to keep on playing. Visit the FSTA site for more information (and thanks).
