Who are some players that could compete this week?

Pick to Win:

  • Jason Bohn (38/1): Bohn looked fantastic last week, finishing T-3rd, as the breakout 42-year-old continues to dazzle. This is a course he has found success at, with his last three results being 18th, second, and eighth place finishes. He is ranked top-51 in all six stats I care about this week (Par 4 Scoring Average, Strokes Gained: Putting, Par 3 Scoring Average, Scrambling, ParBreaker, and GIR). He will be highly owned in DFS and for a good reason.

“Sleepers” to Watch:

  • Brendon Todd (65/1): The players in this section aren’t really sleeper picks, but they are not being discussed as much as I believe they should be. On this course, it is very easy to hit the green, which means putting will be crucial to success. Todd was ranked seventh in Strokes Gained: Putting last year. He is coming in on good form, having finished T-26th or better in three of his last four tournaments. I think this course will suit him nicely, as proven by his T-12th in 2014.

  • Daniel Summerhays (75/1): Speaking of good putters, how about Daniel Summerhays, who was ranked third in SGP last year? He is one of the best in the game at it, and has insane three putt avoidance. He has been playing well recently, having made seven of his last eight cuts, with four of them being top-11s. Summerhays is also the only player ranked in the top-10 in SGP who is also ranked top-25 in Par 4 Scoring Average, the two most important stats this week.

Sleeper Pick: 

  • Hudson Swafford (95/1): Swafford is extremely talented, and has what it takes to dominate any course. He’s turning into an elite putter, as shown by his rank in SGP (26th on the PGA Tour). He has already played this course twice, and has finished no worse than 30th. He is coming in off a strong 17th place showing at the Open, and I see him adding another top-25 this week.
