What a rut I feel I have fallen into, with another week of three strong players, one missed cut, and a couple of total meltdowns pushing me again from a promising start to 90 points out of the money.
This week it is the Dean & Deluca, heading for the Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas, and I looked at who I picked last year, seeing if I now have enough chops with players to really start to dig deeper, as I can in baseball and football.
So, last year, the guys were Matt Kuchar, Charley Hoffman, Mark Leishman, Chez Revia, Steve Marino and Sung Kang, and this time around I am going to stick with a couple of my selections from last year, but move to some other choices in my quest to master DFS golf.
Remember that you can match up against me at the DraftKings Weekly Hybrid PGA.
Matt Kuchar ($10,100): Kuchar, whom I did select last year, has been a pretty steady pick, finishing well at the Byron Nelson last week, playing all weekend ten of twelve times this tour.
Phil Mickelson ($8800): Phil is 10-for-10 making cuts this season, and until he gives me a reason not to pick him, well, I will. Especially at this price.
Adam Hadwin ($8400): Hadwin has been one my meltdown picks over the past couple of weeks, but he has played all weekend in all 11 tourneys this season, averaging 77 points a week.
Billy Horschel ($7900): Hot hands are so iffy. Easy to try, easy to get burned, but I will try for the hot hand with Horschel, who is coming off a win at the Nelson, and hope that means a win, and not scorched fingers.
Sung Kang ($7400): A low-end gamble for sure, like last year, but Kang finished 20th last week at the Nelson, and again, is it the hot hand? We shall see.
Kyle Reifers ($7300): Reifers tied Kang for 20th last week, and has fared well at the Deluca in the past. Again, the idea was to try and not go too low-end or high end, but rather, a roster of solid players who can finish the weekend. A leader or winner is icing.
