VALERO TEXAS OPEN ARTICLE RECAP:
It was certainly nice to see Charley Hoffman finally put together a solid round on Sunday to close out a victory. Aside from that though, not a whole lot went right for me last week. Both Jimmy Walker and Phil Mickelson, two of my top picks, imploded early on and missed the cut. Phil didn’t shock me as much after his ordeal at Augusta, but I was very shocked to see Walker miss the cut given his current form and the fact that he was defending his title. Three of the four guys from my “Next Best” section made the cut, including top 15 finishes from Ryan Palmer and Daniel Summerhays. Aaron Baddeley continued his solid play with a T29 finish. Patrick Rodgers was the only one of the group to miss the cut. Moving on to the value plays, Andrew Loupe’s ownership was much higher than I anticipated, so his missed cut was a little easier to swallow. Along with Baddeley, Luke List continued his hot streak and also ended up with a T29 finish. Looking at the highlighted players as a whole, most of them came to play and shined last week. But unfortunately for me, the guys who didn’t show up were the guys who I had the most exposure to (Phil, Walker, and Loupe). Last week, just about everyone heavily favored the bombers. Usually they have a big advantage at Valero, but this year there was no wind at all. For this reason, the bombers did not have any advantage whatsoever, and chances are if you picked a lineup full of bombers, you did not have a good week. That being said, last week was not a good week for my DraftKings lineups. This week I will definitely try to be smarter about my exposure and not go all in on any of the value guys.

TOURNAMENT PREVIEW:
Even though this is a very long course and has four par 5’s, I don’t expect the bombers to have a huge advantage here. The reason for this is because many of the par 4’s are less than driver holes. The course layout makes players hit down off the tee in order to put themselves in good position for their approach shot. The greens here are very easy to hit, so I will not be putting a ton of weight on GIR or scrambling. Looking at past results, the stat that most highly correlated with success was Strokes Gained – Tee to Green. Since this is a less-than-driver course, I will be factoring SG-T2G much higher in my model this week than outright driving distance. All of the par 5’s are reachable in two shots, so I will still give the bombers a slight bonus, but I don’t expect them to dominate the leader-board like some people may think. I think that par 4 scoring is actually more important to look at this week than par 5 scoring. Since all of the par 5’s are reachable in two shots, most players should pick up birdies there. The par 4’s are where golfers will have the opportunity to really gain strokes on the field. I’ve heard a lot of people saying that they don’t believe putting is important this week, however when looking at past history, I saw that putting has a relatively high correlation to success. I won’t be heavily weighing it, but I will definitely be taking putting into consideration. In summary, I believe SG-T2G and Par 4 scoring are the two most important stats this week.

IMPORTANT COURSE HISTORY INFORMATION: (Based on course data since 2007)
Average winning score: -17 – (Very easy course)
Average # of golfers to make the cut: 77
Average amount of DraftKings points per player per round played: 14.77 (does not include bonuses)

DK Pts Gained Above Average Per Round – I created this stat to give us a better alternative to the popular “Strokes gained” stat. While strokes gained is a very important stat when evaluating a golfer’s skill level, it does not help DFS players all that much. This stat is more oriented towards DFS scoring. If the average score for one round is 14.77 DraftKings Points, and Player X scores 18 points in his round, his DK Pts Gained Above Average will equal (18 – 14.77) = 3.23. To give you a frame of reference, a score over 2.00 would be considered very good. A score over 4.00 is considered elite.

I’m not going to get into too much detail about the formulas that I used or how the calculations were made, but if you are interested feel free to comment below or send me a message on Twitter.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

THE STUDS ($10,000 +)

Based on the pricing this week, there are only three studs. Jason Day ($12,500), Justin Rose ($11,800), and Rickie Fowler ($11,100). These three guys are all a class above the rest of the field and are all great plays. I expect each of them to be greater than 25% owned in all of the big tournaments. Since all three of them will be talked about everywhere this week, I am going to keep this section short and really focus on the mid-range guys this week. I do not recommend taking two of the studs in cash lineups, as there is not a ton of cheap value to be had. I will be using a more balanced approach for cash lineups, while stacking variations of the top golfers in GPP lineups.

Jason Day – Day has been incredible this year. He has T25 performances in each of his last five starts, including a win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He also came in 4th place at this tournament last year. As I mentioned, there is not a whole lot of value this week, so his price tag is too much for me to handle in cash, but he makes for an excellent play in GPP’s.

Justin Rose – I expect Justin Rose to be the highest owned player on the board this week and for good reason. His price tag is more affordable than Day, and you can reasonably build a cash lineup around him. He has incredible course history here coming in the top 15 each of the last four seasons, including a win last year. He is also in great form, with five straight finishes in the top 20. He is the number two ranked player in my model this week (behind Rickie Fowler), and although he will have high ownership, he will still be the centerpiece in all of my lineups.

Rickie Fowler – I have heard some people say they will be fading Rickie this week thinking he will be hungover from the epic #SB2K16. I have heard other people say they are fading him because he doesn’t care about this tournament and is already thinking about defending his title next week at The Players. I am not one of those people. Rickie leads the field in ALL THREE of SG-T2G, Par 4 scoring, and Par 5 scoring. He trails only Lucas Glover in GIR and ranks in the top 20 in SG-Putting. His game fits this course perfectly. I know he has missed the last two cuts here and could potentially have other things on his mind. For this reason I prefer him in GPP’s rather than cash. I do think he is a great play in all formats this week, but if you can only afford one of them, I would opt for Justin Rose over Rickie, as Rose is the safer play.

THE NEXT BEST – ($8,000 – $9,900)

SMYLIE KAUFMAN – $9,500

S-Rank: 8 / O-Rank: 7
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = 1.24
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = N/A

Course History:
N/A – Has never played here before

Recent Form:
4/7 – 29th at The Masters
3/17 – 12th at Arnold Palmer
3/3 – 8th at WGC Cadillac
2/25 – 37th at Honda Classic
2/18 – MC at Northern Trust

Smylie Kaufman has really emerged recently between his great play at the Masters and his MVP award in #SB2K16. I have been a huge fan of his all year and I’m glad to see him finally getting the recognition he deserves. It’s tough to stomach paying $9,500 for him since he’s been in the $6,000’s all year, but this week I really believe he’s worth it. Smylie ranks in the top 20 (relative to the field) in all of SG-T2G, SG-Putting, Par 4 scoring, and Par 5 scoring. He really has been having an incredible season. He played much better last week than his 29th place finish appears, and had some great performances right before that. Smylie was my most targeted golfer at the Masters (after Danny Willett), and his +9 on Sunday really destroyed a lot of my lineups that were at the top of GPP’s. I was very disappointed in him, but the entertainment he provided on snapchat this past week more than made up for it. On top of everything, Smylie is an LSU product and should definitely have some familiarity with the course. He’s a safe play in all formats this week and more importantly, follow him on all social media platforms if you don’t already!

MARC LEISHMAN – $9,100

S-Rank: 9 / O-Rank: 9
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = 1.42
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = 1.10

Course History:
2015 – 28th
2009 – MC

Recent Form:
4/14 – 30th at RBC Heritage
4/7 – MC at The Masters
3/17 – 17th at Arnold Palmer
3/3 – 28th at WGC Cadillac
2/18 – 5th at Northern Trust

Marc Leishman is a guy that may go overlooked this week because of his price point. Most users will prefer to stack two guys that are priced above him, which makes it impossible to also get Leishman in your lineup. He has been in great form recently, coming in the top 30 in four of his last five tournaments. He also came in 28th at the Zurich Classic last year, proving that he can succeed on this course. I also think he is a better player this year than he was last year. Leishman ranks 4th in the field in SG-T2G and 3rd in Par 4 scoring. If I am correct about those two stats being the most important, Leishman’s game should translate really nicely to this course. I prefer him in GPP’s rather than cash but I still think he’s a safe play in all formats.

CHARLES HOWELL III – $8,700

S-Rank: 10 / O-Rank: 10
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = 2.50
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = 2.38

Course History:
2015 – MC
2014 – 34th
2013 – MC
2012 – 39th
2011 – 13th
2010 – 43rd

3/31 – 7th at Houston Open
3/17 – 46th at Arnold Palmer
3/10 – 5th at Valspar
2/25 – MC at Honda Classic

Chucky 3 Sticks is one of my favorite cash plays almost every week he’s in the field. I preach consistency in my articles, and that is exactly what Chucky has been this year. He is 14/15 overall in making cuts and has some very high finishes to match. He’s having one of the best seasons of his career, and I expect him to continue that hot streak in Louisiana. Howell ranks in the top 15 in all of SG-T2G, Par 4 Scoring, and Par 5 Scoring. I prefer Smylie and Leishman in GPP’s but of the players mentioned so far, I think that a Justin Rose/Charles Howell stack is the safest bet to go with for a cash lineup.

PATTON KIZZIRE – $8,200

S-Rank: 15 / O-Rank: 12
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = N/A
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = 1.30

Course History:
N/A – Has never played here before.

Recent Form:
4/14 – 14th at RBC Heritage
3/31 – MC at Houston Open
3/10 – 33rd at Valspar
2/25 – 26th at Honda Classic
2/18 – 52nd at Northern Trust

Patton Kizzire has really emerged this year as a consistent cut maker with an ability to rack up birdies. I actually think he’s a nice value play this week, as I prefer him over all of the players priced right above him (Danny Lee, Jamie Lovemark, Byeong-Hun An). He doesn’t have any course history to look at, but based on this year’s stats, he ranks very high in SG-T2G, Par 4 Scoring, and Par 5 Scoring. The only aspect of his game that hasn’t been great is his putting. Kizzire was in contention all week at the RBC Heritage, and I expect him to be in contention once again at the Zurich Classic. I’m hoping that Patton will be able to figure out the easy greens this week. The putter is the only thing holding him back from being one of the top players in the world, and will be the difference in whether or not he is in contention this weekend.

VALUE PLAYS ($7,000 – $7,900)

LUKE LIST – $7,400

S-Rank: 32 / O-Rank: 28
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = 1.94
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = 2.62

Course History:
2013 – 31st

Recent Form:
4/21 – 29th at Valero Texas Open
4/14 – 39th at RBC Heritage
3/31 – 27th at Houston Open
3/24 – 15th at Puerto Rico Open
3/10 – MC at Valspar

Luke List repeats his way onto my value list after coming through for us last week. He has quietly been having a really good season. He has made 6 of his last 7 cuts, with 3 of them being top 20 finishes. 2013 was the only year he played here and while 31st doesn’t seem like a great finish, he still put up a high amount of DraftKings points due to the amount of birdies his length allows him to get. List ranks in the top 10 in SG-T2G, which makes sense since he is a bomber. He also ranks high in both Par 4 and Par 5 scoring. Like Kizzire, the putter is the only downfall in Luke’s game. I think he is a safe bet to make the cut given his recent form and his strong T2G game, but the putter will determine just how high he finishes in the standings. Many gamers may prefer guys like K.J. Choi, Jerry Kelly, or David Hearn at this price point given their strong course history, but I think List is just as safe a bet as any of them to make the cut and offers the most upside of the group.

LUCAS GLOVER – $7,200

S-Rank: 40 / O-Rank: 33
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = 1.57
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = 2.42

Course History:
2015 – 62nd
2014 – 62nd
2013 – 4th
2012 – 66th
2009 – 19th
2008 – MC
2007 – 8th

Recent Form:
4/14 – 33rd at RBC Heritage
3/31 – 57th at Houston Open
3/17 – 27th at Arnold Palmer
3/10 – MC at Valspar
2/25 – MC at Honda Classic

Lucas Glover seems to rank highly in most individual statistics every week, but very rarely is able to put it all together. Many experts think he would be one of the highest ranked golfers in the world if he could just figure out how to putt, and it’s hard to argue with that. As I mentioned earlier, he hits the most GIR of any player in the field. He also ranks in the top 20 in SG-T2G, Par 4 Scoring, and Par 5 Scoring. Being that these greens are very easy to hit, Glover should have no problem finding them. Even if he is missing putts, he should still be able to par most of the holes and avoid bogeys. I love his upside and really think this could be the week he puts it all together. He has been in good form recently and has made 6 of 7 cuts at this tournament, including two finishes in the top ten. I prefer him in GPP’s but I will very likely have exposure to Glover in all formats.

JHONATTAN VEGAS – $7,100

S-Rank: 45 / O-Rank: 50
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = 0.28
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = 4.25

Course History:
2015 – 36th

Recent Form:
4/21 –MC at Valero Texas Open
3/31 – 19th at Houston Open
3/24 – 26th at Puerto Rico Open
3/17 – 46th at Arnold Palmer
2/11 – MC at Pebble Beach

Jhonattan Vegas was another bomber who let me down last week, but I really think this week will be different for him. His 36th place finish last year looks okay, but it is a little bit misleading. He scored two eagles last year and because of that actually came in 25th place as far as fantasy points are concerned. That looks a whole lot nicer, and I think he can repeat that type of performance this year. He ranks in the top 25 in all of the important stats – SG-T2G, Par 4 Scoring, and Par 5 Scoring. His inconsistency makes him a GPP only option for me, but I do think he offers enough upside that he’s worth taking a chance on in a few of your lineups.

VALUE PLAYS ($6,000 – $6,900)

DAVID TOMS – $6,700

S-Rank: 68 / O-Rank: 42
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = -0.52
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = 1.39

Course History:
2015 – 69th

3/31 – 33rd at Houston Open
3/24 – 39th at Puerto Rico Open
3/10 – MC at Valspar
2/18 – 39th at Northern Trust

David Toms enters the Zurich Classic in great form making four of his last five cuts, and also has great course history. Toms has made the cut all 8 times playing at this course, including a 5th place finish in 2009. His Vegas odds immediately jump off the page to me, as he is the 42nd ranked golfer in the field according to Vegas, but DraftKings has him priced as the 68th highest. That large discrepancy will likely lead to him having a high ownership. I think he is by far the best and safest <$7,000 cash play on the board. When you think of Toms, you likely think of a crafty old veteran that wouldn’t have a strong tee to green game. But based on his stats this year, he actually ranks in the top 10 (relative to the field) in both SG-T2G and Par 4 scoring, the two stats that I believe are the most important this week. Toms checks every box for me this week and I will likely have a ton of exposure to him. He is the same price as Loupe last week and we all know how that turned out, but I feel much safer with the veteran here. You might want to look elsewhere in GPP’s for someone with higher upside, but for cash games you definitely can’t go wrong with Toms.

MORGAN HOFFMANN – $6,700

S-Rank: 68 / O-Rank: 44
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = 0.76
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = 3.44

Course History:
2015 – 36th
2014 – 34th
2013 – 21st

Recent Form:
4/14 – 23rd at RBC Heritage
3/31 – MC at Houston Open
3/24 – MC at Puerto Rico Open
3/17 – MC at Arnold Palmer
3/10 – MC at Valspar

As you can tell from a quick glance at his recent form, Hoffmann has been struggling to make cuts and is a very inconsistent player. You should not be targeting him at all in cash games this week, but he is an interesting contrarian option in GPP’s (if you want to fade David Toms). He has made the cut all three times playing at this course in the past. In his Zurich course history, he actually ranks 2nd (behind Cameron Tringale) in DraftKings Points Gained Above Average with 3.44. That is a very high number and is the main reason why I am targeting Hoffmann this week. Like David Toms, he also has a glaring difference in his Vegas Odds rank compared to his DraftKings salary rank. He ranks pretty poorly in all of my key stats this week, which ultimately is the main reason why I will be avoiding him in cash games. I don’t recommend going all in on him in GPP’s by any means, but I do like his upside and have no problem owning a few shares of him.

ALEX CEJKA – $6,300

S-Rank: 92 / O-Rank: 70
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (2016 Season) = -0.18
DraftKings Pts Gained Above Average Per Round (Zurich Classic History) = 0.35

2009 – MC
2008 – 75th
2007 – 8th

Recent Form:
3/31 – WD at Houston Open
3/24 – 11th at Puerto Rico Open
2/25 – 21st at Honda Classic
2/11 – 41st at Pebble Beach
2/4 – WD at Phoenix Open

Before his WD from the Houston Open a few weeks ago, Cejka was actually starting to play some really good golf. Cejka withdrew from that tournament because of a neck injury, the same injury that caused him to WD from the Phoenix Open earlier this year. Obviously this is a lingering issue and that worries me a little bit. It’s unfortunate because health aside, I actually really like Cejka this week. I’m not going to take him in cash due to his risk of WD, but that will also scare many owners away and he could turn out to be a low owned gem in GPP’s. Cejka has made the cut 5/7 times playing at this course including a few high finishes. He also ranks 6th in Par 4 Scoring, 24th in SG-T2G, and 28th in Par 5 Scoring. Vegas loves him too, as he is the 70th ranked golfer according to the odds, while being the 92nd most expensive. If you think you can stomach the risk of an early WD, I think the potential reward in Cejka my be worth it.

    Great article! Thanks for the info. What are your thoughts on Cameron Tringale? He has excellent history at this tournament and finished 2nd last year, but his recent form is hit or miss. Do you think he makes sense for cash games, GPPs, both, or none?

    I do like Tringale this week but feel like he is priced a little too high. For only $100 more, you can get Charles Howell III who I feel much more confident playing in cash. (He has made 14/15 cuts so far this season)… I think Tringale is a solid GPP option but his inconsistent play this year worries me in cash. I will have a few shares of him but if you have an extra $100 to spare, I think Howell is your guy.

    DH Lee is a great find and will allow you to get more of those big name players in play. Great work!

    I have him on one Lu, I wouldn’t put much faith in him.

    I agree. I’m fine taking him in maybe one or two lineups if you want to make a Day/Rose stack, but I wouldn’t go crazy on him.
