PGA DFS Tournament Blog: Wyndham Championship Data Insights & Showdown Updates

My goal with this blog is to touch on various key data or course insights that I find valuable, and hopefully will aid in your process to help polish up your player pool, or perhaps even re-evaluate your process for the given week.

As we know with PGA DFS (and golf in general), every course and sometimes every round/day can play differently. This nuance makes PGA DFS both fun and also tricky to come to a simplified approach each week. I will use this blog to help steer through the fluff and focus on the most impactful data for each week. Check back throughout the tournament as I drop some interesting Showdown data nuggets that will help build your teams for the next day.

Thursday, August 4th, 10:15 PM ET: Round 2 Showdown Plays

I can’t believe we are only 1 week away from the finale of the 2021-2022 season with the beginning of the Fedex Cup. Nonetheless, the Wyndham is shaping up to be a fun, low-scoring event to sweat out. Funny enough, my week long teams probably would have done really well if I played them in Showdown for Round 1, and vice versa had I played my Round 1 showdown for the full-week contests.

Let’s try to get the pieces right for Round 2. In terms of the top priced guys, I will talk about them at the end. They all project very similarly, but honestly I don’t think you “need” any of them. They will eat up a lot of ownership.

Top Plays per EAP/Spectrum Data

Christiaan Bezuidenhout
Scott Stallings
Chesson Hadley
Rafa Cabrera Bello
Anirban Lahiri
Austin Smotherman
John Huh – I don’t see any reason why he can’t at least pay off his price of $6800 again tomorrow.
Andrew Novak
Brian Stuard

Expensive Plays

If I am going to spend up, I will only target the AM guys from this range. Overall, the studs didn’t excel in any particular category. For example, Sungjae played well but he only hit 33% of his approaches inside of 18 ft. which is worse than the field average. He did however putt extremely well.

Russell Henley
Billy Horschel
Corey Conners
Si Woo Kim
Adam Scott
