Congratulations to Patrick Cantlay for winning The ZOZO Championship last week with a 265 (-23) total score for 72 holes at Sherwood Country Club over the formidable Justin Thomas 266 (-22) and Jon Rahm 266 (-22) by a single stroke.
This week at (Port Royal Golf Course ) the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. designed resort course will play to a Par of 71 at 6,828 yards, without much bermuda rough, and Bermuda greens expected to only reach 10.5 on the stimpmeter, due to the anticipated 20-30 mile per hour wind gusts to hit the island nation by Friday. The Port Royal Golf Course golf course should see good scoring amongst this 132-player field, that will have a 36-hole cut. The defense of this Southampton, Bermuda resort golf course are the ever-changing coastal winds along with deep traditional Robert Trent Jones bunkering, multi-level greens, and water that comes into play on many holes. With only three par fives at Port Royal 36/35 par 71, I anticipate the competitors that can master strokes gained on approach and with putting, will result in the best performances this week.
Brendan Todd ($11,100 DK $11,900 FD) is the 2019 defending champion when the Bermuda Championship was last played at Port Royal Golf Course for the first time as a secondary event on the PGA Tour last season. For this week at the (Bermuda Championship ), Brendon Todd ($11,100 DK $11,900 FD), Will Zalatoris ($10,900 DK $11,800 FD), Harold Varner ($10,700 DK $11,500 FD), and Doc Redman ($10,400 DK $10,900 FD) headline DraftKings and FanDuel salary rankings respectively, with all but Brendon Todd playing in back-to-back weeks following The ZOZO Championship to defend his title. Many in the field this week played this event last year at Port Royal Golf Course or several veterans played it in the Grand Slam of Golf held here from 2009-2014.
DFSExperts will provide two value picks in the B and C categories that will be competitive to make the cut and quite possibly to be a contender for the win. Then exclusively for DFSExperts members, Iwill make additional predictions and recommendations to build a roster of six with supporting statistical and trending analysis from each of the A, B, and C, categories. Last week at The ZOZO Championship my B-List value pick stars were Lanto Griffin 271 (-17) T-11th place, and in the C-List category Corey Conners 270 (-17) T-8th place.
There are several quality picks that are very undervalued throughout the field, but especially in both the B-List grouping, which is deeper than usual due to the A-List guys skipping this week and will likely play Houston prior to the Masters. Many within the B-List grouping have played well recently on similar style golf courses and will emerge as players to watch to win. I have picked the winner in four of the last eleven weeks and many of my B-List and C-List picks are finishing in the top 5 to 10, including a win for Stewart Cink at the Safeway event. Beyond the obvious, pay attention to my free picks, combined with the more in-depth analysis exclusively for DFSExperts members and you could be cashing a three to six figure ticket. Join me on the members side and be enlightened.
A-List DFS Picks for the Bermuda Championship: 2020
I only consider four of the top ranked salary players to be in the A-List category this week based on recent results, course history, and overall strokes gained, especially on approach. DFSExperts will add to the obvious statistical analysis, with deeper research and the eyeball test. These details and trends from the entire field are only possible to come from someone that is intimately familiar with competitive golf, that is willing to go beyond the numbers and reaches the depth and breadth of the competitor and person to be out in front of positive results.
I believe the only A-List players relative to the field strength this week are, Brendon Todd ($11,100 DK $11,900 FD), Will Zalatoris ($10,900 DK $11,800 FD), Harold Varner ($10,700 DK $11,500 FD) and Doc Redman ($10,400 DK $10,900 FD) are the most likely to find the victory circle this week based on a combination of their ball striking, recent form, and short game skills. Any two of these top salary players are good cornerstones to your lineup this week. Any one of these top four are appropriately priced and should be competitive for a win or top 5 to 10th place finish. I like Zalatoris and Redman to head my lineups with the other four out of the vast choices in the B-List category where there are some values. There are no fades this week in the A-List grouping, with only four being considered amongst the premium players in a weak field.
B-List DFS Picks for the Bermuda Championship: 2020
Denny McCarthy ($9,500 DK $11,200 FD), Kristoffer Ventura ($9,100 DK $10,300 FD), Justin Suh ($8,7000 DK $9,900 FD), Wesley Bryan ($7,800 DK $9,600 FD), Cameron Percy ($7,000 DK $8,700 FD), Michael Gligic ($6,500 DK $8,300 FD) and Ricky Barnes ($6,300 DK $7,800 FD) all have consistent strokes gained across the board, with the emphasis on approach and putting, which will serve them well at Port Royal this week. With a hot putter, all have the potential to win this week, but certainly will be amongst the top 10-20 finishers. I think there are many good three through six roster selections in this B-List grouping. There are also many fades in this large B-List weak field this week. Not high on Padraig Herrington ($7,700 DK $9,400 FD) or Graham DeLaet ($6,300 DK $7,400 FD) both whom are a little past their prime and have fought injuries.
C-List DFS Picks for the Bermuda Championship: 2020
Unlike last week, there is a full field, albeit a weak one, with a cut. I gave you more picks deeper in the B-List salary rankings this week because I feel the field is watered down and there is no C-List plays this week. You will do well selecting primarily out of the B-List, dropping as low as $6,300 in DK and $7,300 in FD. No-go’s in the C-List category this week are everyone below $6,200 DK and $7,200 FD, with no exceptions. Too many cuts missed and poor recent form throughout this group.
While these are a few teasers for this week, more in depth analysis and justification for my recommended lineup plays, or don’t play this week, are exclusively available for members of DFSExperts.com. Send us any fodder for the “Wall of Fame” including screenshots. We will put them up on social and proclaim you the DFS champion of the world. Good luck, and Golf On!
