PGA Splits Advanced Data Picks and Analysis: Bermuda Championship
The PGA Tour travels back almost halfway across the globe this week for the Bermuda Championship. With this being near the end of the PGA Tour calendar year with nothing but minor tournaments remaining, most of the top 100 players in the world are choosing not to make the trip, and many will not play again until 2022. This leaves us with one of the worst field strengths of the year. It is tempting to cross most of the entire bottom half of the field off the list right at the start, but there is one “X-factor” that should not be ignored or passed over lightly, the wind. Last year, winds blew consistently at 15-35 mph which resulted in the average player score finishing above par. The forecast for this week calls for more of the same. Players who have performed well in the past on Windy/Coastal courses will be featured in our DraftKings outlook below. With the greens at Port Royal GC being played on Bermuda grass (named after the island) we will also analyze player performance on this surface. Finally, we will take a peek at my official final model for the week to locate some other value plays to help fill out your lineup in this very weak field.
