A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier
The PGA Tour is back! I know two weeks is an incredibly short offseason, but I missed my Thursday morning sweat and my Friday afternoon cut sweat. While we have plenty of course data to work with this week, there are quite a few new names in the field. There are some big names at the top and we will get to them shortly, but the Korn Ferry Tour graduates are in the field this week, as they look to take the next step in their golfing careers. For the most part, I will let others play the graduates. Scottie Scheffler is the one exception that I don’t mind targeting in tournaments. He has PGA Tour experience and was a consistent winner on the Korn Ferry Tour last season.
As for roster construction, this week sets up well for a stars and scrubs type of build. We have a handful of elite golfers in the field, but after that there isn’t a ton that separates the mid-range from the value plays. For instance, is Shawn Stefani really that much worse of a golfer than Martin Laird or Harold Varner? The stars and scrubs approach allows us to get win equity up top and still build a roster that you feel confident in getting all six golfers through the cut. If you have read my columns in the past, you know that most weeks I prefer the balanced build for cash games and single entry. For this event, I will be using the stars and scrubs approach for all formats.
Oh, and while I won’t have core plays listed for this week’s Euro Tour event, I will go through my projections for both events in this week’s model video.
