    Riviera is a fairly long course that tends to favor players that have a natural power fade. With that said, off the top of my head I know that JB Holmes and Gary Woodland are bombers that fade the ball. Anybody else know of other players that fit that mold?

  • tprokopenko

    Bubba at $10400 looks enticing

  • mcb13100

    KJ Choi isn’t a bomber but he plays that natural cut shot and has a great track record at Riviera

  • TeamTwerk

    Rodgers looks enticingly priced at 7300 although I haven’t looked into how his game fits this course.

    Top guys over 13k this week. I wonder what the ownership will be after everyone was burned with spieth and dj last week

  • sneaksox

    How is Kevin Na only 8K? I know he had a bad week and missed the cut but that seems insanely low for a guy whose current form has been amazing. Does he have a bad track record at Riviera?

      RG Overall Ranking

    Fred Couples only plays here and the Masters on the regular tour each year because he loves this course so much. Finished 2nd in the Champions tour event this weekend with a final round 66. Also hits it long for his age and plays the power fade off the tee. Don;t sleep on him this week.

    What about Paul Casey? Dustin Johnson has had success here the past 2 years finishing as the runner up twice.

    Thanks for the info. It seems like DK uses past event history as a big part of their pricing algorithm so I feel like Na is a cash game lock this week due to being severely under priced at his current level of play.

    Are we chasing with Vaughn Taylor this week? 22nd last year and 5/6 made cuts in his past 6 tournaments here.

    If by ‘pricing algorithm’, you mean they basically just copy the Vegas odds, then yeah.

    Anyone looking at John Huh this week? He’s at $3900 on Aces and has been playing really well lately, nice little punt play for some additional salary $ in my opinion.

    Na is 19th in vegas odds and 20th in pricing so I guess that’s aligned. It just seems weird to see him down at 8K vs the top guys who are over 13K. I guess it’s more that price disparity than his positioning that seemed off this week.

  • Framingjesus

    I’m interested to see how M.Jones, B.Steele, B.Watson place. they look like great plays. Hard to trust all of them since their skill sets differ depending on the weather.

    Summerhays looks interesting at the bottom… also graham delaet placed T3 last year… kind of hard to overlook him as he knows the course. decent price.

    anyone looking at willcox this week???

  • RangerC

    Weird pricing… Rory/Spieth 13+K, no one below 5.8 (miss the super risky 5.5K-5K punts), and an absolute TON of great plays from 7.7-7.1 (Woodland, Donald, Finau, Rodgers, Wilcox, Berger, Weisberger, Hahn, DeLaet, Lovemark, etc). Thought Rory would be impossible at his price – nope (just go Rory/5 guys in the low 7K range).

    He will be in my Aces Article again this week!

    i like Keegan this week. Possibly under-owned option.

    Last 4 years he has finished 61st+

  • DanielSong39

    I’m getting Rose, Watson, Schwartzel, Haas, K Bradley, Jacobson, McGirt. Good luck!

    I really like his course history here.

  • ElSlappo

    No Drive the Green this week on DK? I must say I love the payout structure of the $3 Birdie this week.

    I’m excited about having a tournament where they play the same course 4 days in a row and there is a normal cut.

    Gotta love Freddy C – especially on Fantasy Hub!

    I don’t think you’re chasing at all, just know recency bias will make this a very popular play due to last weeks win. It is very hard for anyone, yet alone not a top player to win in back-to-back weeks, but T25 isn’t out of the question.

  • Dewoc19

    im surprised no Phil this week, looking at the winner history it seems he plays this course well.

    how does anybody feel about Sergio Garcia, i know he has a tendency to choke, like a lot but theres no denying his skill and talent

    and CH3 seems like a must play, another guy that seems to play this course pretty well

    are you on the right course regarding him? Including 2010 he’s posted no better than 61st place and has missed the cut 4/6 times.

    he’s probably looking at current form, not course history
