There is no major news to report ahead of the first event of the wraparound the season. Good luck this week. ResultsDB will be up and running within 15 minutes of roster lock. Make sure to check out how your lineups stack up against the field.
Kevin Roth’s weather report for the first event of the 2020 PGA Tour season is up in the main forum. If you are new to DFS golf we like to look at weather in terms of a tee time draw over the first two days of play. If it appears that one side of the draw could potentially have a stronger edge in terms of weather then you can build rosters to adjust for the weather. This week’s weather forecast calls for stronger winds with a chance for rain on Friday afternoon. That being said the winds are not expected to be more than 10mph, so there is not a real clear edge in terms of weather. We would need the wind to be much strong to avoid one wave over another. That being said you could always build a few MME lineups with tee time stacking in mind in case of a preferred draw.
All four Monday Qualifiers plus John Rollins have been added to the DraftKings player pool. The five golfers listed above are available to use in LineupHq. Last year we saw a few Monday Qualifiers play well during the season, but outside of Rollins and Allan, it’s hard to project how the other three unproven players will perform. With almost no projected ownership these additions are just noteworthy in the sense that they are available to use for the week.
Playing through injury is something that Jamie Lovemark knows all too well. This very talented golfer has missed more than his fair share of time with a slew of broken-down body parts. Lovemarks’ latest injury ( bum shoulder) kept him out of golf for some 28 weeks. Playing in only his fourth start of the 2019 calendar year, Lovemark will look to get back into the competitive grove at this week’s Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. The long layoff will make it easy for many in The DFS community to take a wait and see approach on Lovemark. Priced only 300 away from the cheapest golfer in the field, Lovemark at low projected ownership has GPP appeal for the week. Despite the layoff, Lovemark has plenty of experience on Tour, and with 3 made cuts in 4 appearances at The Greenbrier, we can definitely make a case for this play in large field GPP’s. It’s worth noting that Lovemark has a T26 and 3rd place showing in his last two starts at The Greenbrier.
The level of talent year in professional golf makes it very common for players to bounce back and forth between the Korn Ferry Tour and the PGA Tour. Fresh off what he hopes to be his only stint on The Korn Ferry Tour, Zac Blair is in this week’s field. As you are looking for value in a week where stars and scrubs lineup builds will be very common, Blair is a player worth considering. With over 110 PGA tour starts under his belt, Blair will not be in an unfamiliar spot in comparison to his fellow tour rookies. Not the longest of golfers Blair will rely on his ability to hit fairways and greens to play well at The Old White Course. Making his fourth start at this event Blair will look to improve on 2 made cuts. From an expectation standpoint, Blair with a made cut and a top 40 type finish should be enough to pay off his salary in this new top 65 and cut format.
Unable to pull off the feat of earning a PGA Tour card through a handfull of events towards the end of the 2018 season, Doug Ghim had to earn his way to the big leagues via a season on The Korn Ferry Tour. Entering the final stretch of this year’s Korn Ferry Tour, Ghim played the golf he needed over the final three events to earn his spot on the PGA Tour this season. This former number one amateur player in the world should have the game to compete on the PGA Tour for many years to come and is a golfer we should keep an eye on during the wrap-around season. Ghim is currently projected to have a low ownership number this week and has the type of game that translates well to this type of course. In terms of trying to quantify price with talent, the unproven commodity that is Doug Ghim is worth taking a shot on in GPP’s for the first PGA Tour event of the 2020 season.
