2019 PGA DFS: Wyndham Championship

Alex White

PGA DFS has created a significant following over the past few years. Which is the best thing that could have happened to the sport, next to Tiger making his all world comeback of course. This overflow of PGA DFS players has snowballed in the right direction, creating a wide variety of contests on our go to DFS sites (DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo, and even DRAFT). The players that have put in the work are sharper than ever. The content is vast and can be somewhat overwhelming. If you have ever asked yourself who do I trust? Who am I going to believe in enough to put my hard-earned money on the line for? Raise your hand. My hand is up. 

Now put your hand down and listen. Here at Fulltime Fantasy we want to take the guesswork out of it for you. DFS is a sport in and of itself and if we aren’t willing to put in the research, it will hinder our long-term ROI. Majority of DFS players got into this because they love sports, some got into DFS to make money, and others got into this to TAKE money. That is where we come in at Fulltime Fantasy, we want to TAKE what we deserve because we don’t cut corners, we don’t glance over articles, we don’t throw in uneducated lineups. We are WINNERS. Now let’s go WIN.

  • Your DraftKings lineup is made up of 6 golfers you choose within a $50K salary cap.
  • Your FanDuel lineup is made up of 6 golfers you choose within a $60K salary cap.

Quick tip: You can create an ownership edge by simply not using all your salary cap.

TOURNAMENT OVERVIEW

We head to Greensboro, North Carolina this week to take on the Wyndham Championship. This week will be back to a full field event. I am impressed with the talent coming to this event. All the young guns are back to show off their skills. Now with Morikawa winning last week the only rookie left without a win is Viktor Hovland. Personally, I thought he would be the first to take down a PGA Tour title but Wolff and Morikawa proved they belong early on in their careers. Rookies aside we have some other big names fighting for some last-minute FedEx Cup points before the playoffs next week. Motivation will play a role this week, but I won’t be solely focused on that factor. This course is a Donald Ross design and will reward great off the tee game. Looking at the leaderboards from years past you don’t need to be a long hitter to make an impact here. In fact, accuracy off the tee is much more important than distance this week. I want to target hitters that can score on fast Bermuda greens. The average winning score here is around eighteen under par so expect fireworks on Sunday. Time to go find our Edge!
