Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth have been popular PGA DFS picks for years, but daily Fantasy golf players will have to decide if they can be trusted when they set their PGA DFS strategy for the 2023 Memorial Tournament, which tees off from Muirfield Village Golf Club on Thursday. McIlroy, who's among the highest priced players on both DraftKings and FanDuel, has won 23 PGA Tour events in his career, including four major championships. However, McIlroy has finished T-47 or worse in three of his last five starts on the PGA Tour.
Spieth, whose PGA DFS price is $8,900 on DraftKings and $10,800 on FanDuel, has struggled in recent weeks, missing the cut in two of his last three starts. Spieth has been extremely inconsistent on the tee box, ranking 122nd in total driving (211) and 153rd in driving accuracy (54.40%). Should your PGA DFS strategy include taking a chance on Spieth or McIlroy, or is it time to fade them in favor of players with a significantly lower price tag? Before you lock in your PGA DFS picks for the Memorial Tournament 2023, you'll want to see the latest daily Fantasy golf picks, advice and player pool from SportsLine's Mike McClure.

Top 2023 Memorial Tournament PGA DFS picks
One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for the Memorial Tournament 2023 is Justin Thomas at $9,200 on DraftKings and $10,900 on FanDuel. Thomas certainly has the game to return value at Muirfield Village this week. The 30-year-old has won 15 times on the PGA Tour, and he's missed the cut just once this season, making him a solid building block for your PGA DFS strategy.
Thomas is currently ranked fifth in strokes gained: around-the-green (0.488), 36th in strokes gained: approach to green (0.424) and 46th in one-putt percentage (42.03%). He's a complete steal at this price point, so confidently lock him in your PGA DFS lineups.
McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Patrick Cantlay at $10,500 on DraftKings and $11,800 on FanDuel. Cantlay's game suits Muirfield Village perfectly, and he's recorded two wins at the Memorial Tournament since 2019.
In order to score well at Muirfield Village, players need to be extremely accurate off the tee, and few do it better than Cantlay. In fact, the 31-year-old enters the 2023 Memorial Tournament ranked first in total driving (36), second in strokes gained: off the tee (0.968) and ninth in driving accuracy (66.72%). He's also accurate with his irons, ranking fifth in greens in regulation percentage (70.50%). Those impressive stats have allowed Cantlay to finish T-9 or better in three of his last four starts on the PGA Tour. Lock him in your PGA DFS lineups and look for a big return this week at the Memorial Tournament. See who else to back right here.
