Tiger Woods heads to the 2020 Masters looking to defend his title starting on Thursday, but should the 82-time PGA Tour champion be among your PGA DFS picks? With a 2020 Masters field that features the likes of Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka, Woods will have his hands full if he wants to defend his title. Woods has won five green jackets, but he enters the Masters 2020 having finished outside the top 40 in five of his last six starts on the PGA Tour.
Woods is listed at $9,100 on DraftKings and $11,100 on FanDuel, so rostering him means finding plenty of value elsewhere in the PGA DFS player pool. Should Woods be part of your PGA DFS strategy, or should you look elsewhere when finalizing your 2020 Masters DFS picks? Before entering any PGA DFS tournaments or cash games for the Masters 2020, you'll want to see the top PGA DFS picks, advice and player pool from SportsLine's Mike McClure.
McClure is a DFS pro with nearly $2 million in career winnings, and he's been red-hot on his PGA Tour picks this season. McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every tournament 10,000 times, taking factors like statistical trends, past results and current form into account. This allows him to find the best PGA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They're a must-see for any PGA DFS player.
Last week at the Houston Open, McClure identified Dustin Johnson as one of his top PGA DFS picks on FanDuel. The result: Johnson climbed the leaderboard and earned a second-place finish, his sixth straight top-10 finish. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge weekend.
In addition, McClure nailed Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, finishing up over $6,200 on his top picks. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure's top picks included Garcia winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a massive +5500 return!
McClure also nailed two of his top picks at the U.S. Open, including a +1100 top-five pick on Matthew Wolff. McClure's golf model was also all over long shot winner Jon Rahm at the Memorial Tournament. The model identified him as a top contender from the start despite his long odds and he recommended an outright pick on him to win at 22-1. It also had him as the projected winner heading into the weekend.
The model also called DeChambeau taking the Rocket Mortgage Classic and has nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend, including Patrick Reed's victory two years ago.
Now, McClure has set his sights on this week's event and revealed his optimal PGA DFS advice, strategy and player pool. Head to SportsLine now to see his top daily Fantasy golf picks for the 2020 Masters.
Top 2020 Masters PGA DFS picks
One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for the Masters 2020: Matthew Fitzpatrick at $7,600 on DraftKings and $9,400 on FanDuel. Fitzpatrick is quickly making a name for himself on the PGA Tour. In fact, the 26-year-old has finished 12th or better in five of his last eight starts.
Fitzpatrick ranks in the top 25 in a number of important statistical categories, which will help return plenty of value for your PGA DFS lineups for the 2020 Masters. He ranks 16th in driving accuracy percentage (69.12), 17th in birdie average (4.70) and 21st in putting average (1.672). Fitzpatrick has all the tools necessary to make a deep run at Augusta National.
McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Rory McIlroy at $10,200 on DraftKings and $11,900 on FanDuel. The 18-time PGA Tour champion certainly has the game to be near the top of the 2020 Masters leaderboard on Sunday.
With a win this week at Augusta, McIlroy will become just the sixth player in history to complete the career grand slam. The four-time major champion enters the 2020 Masters having finished in the top 10 in three of his last five starts in majors.
He's a long ball hitter who's averaging 325.3 yards per drive this season, which ranks fifth on tour. In addition, McIlroy ranks first on the PGA Tour in birdie average (5.33) and second in strokes gained off the tee (1.281), which should allow him the opportunity to return solid value at the Masters 2020.
How to set your 2020 Masters PGA DFS lineups
