 The "Up & Down Report" - CareerBuilder Challenge
Posted by Jason Rouslin on Wednesday, January 18, 2017 - 10:19

For anyone that knows golf, they know how important ‘up & downs’ are and the effect they have on a golfer’s score. In this article, I will attempt to go ‘up and down’ the golfers competing in that week and highlight my favorite golfers in each price category, as well as highlight the top ownership projections of the week.  Hopefully going ‘up and down’ the list will help identify some key value players, which, if you are new to DFS-Golf, as in any other DFS sport, is extremely vital to crafting a winning lineup.

 European Tour - Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 - 16:46

Rory couldn’t close the door on Graeme Storm last week (that was a weird sentence to write), but looks to continue his dominance in Abu Dhabi this week and has withdrawn from the event this week. The field is a lot stronger than last week which should make for some nice golf sweats this week. Defending champion Rickie Fowler (also a weird sentence to write, mainly because he’s over rated as a golfer) looks to be the first to make the cut in his defense since Jamie Donaldson in 2014 (Donaldson finished 56th). Bombers have a nice advantage this week, but the fairways are a bit tighter than we’re used to seeing on the Euro Tour so we’ll be leaning on bombers who hit higher percentages of fairways, but by no means do we need to target “driving accuracy only” guys as most of the par 4’s are pretty long...

 CareerBuilder Challenge
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 - 16:25

Last week we saw Justin Thomas finally win his first event with a cut and he did it in record breaking fashion starting off the week becoming the youngest player to shoot a 59. Congrats to those who played him as he had over 130 DK points after 3 rounds of play. This week we move back to the mainland and head to the ball strikers paradise known as PGA West La Quinta Country Club. This week is a bit different with the cut sweats being on Saturday instead of Friday (cut will come after everyone has played all three courses) so making sure your punt plays not only make the cut, but place high will be the difference in winning GPP’s or ending up with a min cash. One strategy that worked well last year was targeting players who didn’t hit the Stadium Course until Saturday as this is the hardest of the three courses. The thinking there is that the players can play their normal game for the first two days and not have to press to make the cut; this will be my strategy again this year so make sure you pay attention to the tee time pairings when they’re released (unfortunately they are not out as of writing)...

 European Tour - BMW South Africa Open
Posted by Taras Pitra on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 - 10:51

First off, Rory is a 3.5/1 favorite this week and the 2nd “worst” odds fall to either Brandon Stone at 15/1 or Andy Sullivan at 15/1 depending on the book you’re at. Rory has never played here, but to be that big of a favorite you know the field...

 Sony Open
Posted by Taras Pitra on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 - 10:51

The Tour stays off the mainland for one more week as they travel to the island of Oahu for the Sony Open. The course is a bit tougher than Kapalua so scores will naturally be a bit higher this week. Par this week is 70 (versus 72 last week) so even though you may see scores of 66 or 67, the total scores will be higher. Justin Thomas holds the Par 70 course record at 61 in 2015 (shot on Friday and followed by back to back rounds of even par on the weekend), and comes in hot after his win last week. The course is set up better for guys who hit it long off the tee as well as those who possess a strong iron game, so we’ll be leaning heavily on those who gain strokes from tee to green (SG:T2G). If you’re trying to decide between a player who’s playing his first event in over two months or someone who played last week, I’d give the nod to the guy who’s taken some swings...

 SBS Tournament of Champions
Posted by Kevin Reardon on Sunday, January 8, 2017 - 10:53

Finally for us golf JUNKIES, the PGA TOUR is back from it’s short winter hibernation. The Tournament of Champions starts Thursday and is a very exclusive event, so much so that you have to win the previous year to be eligible to participate. Shockingly, with no cut and a guaranteed payday, many of the best players in the world forgo their week long paid vacation in Hawaii. Life is good when you can pass up a free check after 72-holes of golf in paradise. Personally I'll try to cash a few checks come Sunday night when the final putt is holed. Here are a few plays I'll be on this week: 1st Round Head 2 Head: Patrick Reed +120 v Jason Day Fat Pat has a nice track record here. 65 in round 1 here last year, 67 in 2015 when he won, and 70 in 2014. Jason Day shot 70 during the 1st round in 2016 and 2015. Give me Reed +$ here!

 SBS Tournament of Champions
Posted by Taras Pitra on Tuesday, January 3, 2017 - 18:30

We begin 2017 with the Tournament of Champions in beautiful Maui, Hawaii where the Bermuda rough is cut as short as possible and the birdies will be droppin’! This week there’s no cut, so I’d temper back your excitement in throwing a ton of money into cash games and focus primarily on building GPP lineups. Sure, you can still play cash games, but the edge isn’t there this week unless you’re hitting the nuts on all six of your players so if you do play cash I’d recommend scaling back this week. One last item of note; in the past three years players finishing in the Top 5 at the Hero World Challenge all placed in the Top 10 (if they participated) in the Tournament of Champions...
