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 FedEx St. Jude Championship, which gets underway from TPC Southwind on Thursday, Aug. 10. McIlroy, who's among the highest priced players on both DraftKings and FanDuel, has finished T-9 or better in each of his last seven starts, which includes a victory at the Genesis Scottish Open. Spieth, whose PGA DFS price is $9,300 on DraftKings and $10,900 on FanDuel, has missed the cut in three of his last five starts on the PGA Tour.
Can those household names be relied on as PGA DFS picks this week? Or is it time to fade them in favor of players with a significantly lower price tag?

Top 2023 FedEx St. Jude Championship PGA DFS picks
One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for the FedEx St. Jude Championship 2023 is Viktor Hovland at $10,200 on DraftKings and $11,400 on FanDuel. Hovland certainly has the game to return value at TPC Southwind this week. The 25-year-old has recorded one win and seven top-10 finishes this season, and he's finished T-25 or better in six of his last seven starts overall.
Hovland has been able to secure those impressive results thanks to his all-around game. In fact, Hovland enters this week's event ranked eighth in scoring average (69.36), 10th in birdie average (4.25) and 13th in strokes gained: total (1.420). He also ranks seventh in strokes gained: off the tee (0.702), 21st in strokes gained: approach to green (0.546) and 31st in putting average (1.731). 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 Jon Rahm at $11,100 on DraftKings and $12,100 on FanDuel.
In order to score well at TPC Southwind, players will need to consistently put themselves in advantageous positions with their approach shots, and few do it better than Rahm. In fact, the 28-year-old is currently ranked third in both strokes gained: approach to green and greens in regulation percentage (71.28%). He's also been efficient with his putter, ranking third in putting average (1.700) and 21st in strokes gained: putting (0.475). Plus, he's racked up four wins and 10 top-10 finishes this season, consistently providing value for PGA DFS lineups. See who else to back right here.
