Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson have been regulars in PGA DFS lineups 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 2021 Palmetto Championship, which tees off on Thursday. Johnson, who's the highest priced golfer on both DraftKings and FanDuel, enters this week's event ranked No. 1 in the Official World Golf Ranking. However, Johnson enters the Palmetto Championship 2021 having finished T-48 or worse in five of his last six events.
Koepka, whose PGA DFS price is $11,100 on DraftKings and $12,100 on FanDuel, is coming off a runner-up finish at the PGA Championship. The four-time major champion has finished T-2 or better in three of his last six starts. 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? Before you enter any PGA DFS tournaments or cash games for the 2021 Palmetto Championship, you'll want to see the latest daily Fantasy golf 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 Memorial Tournament, McClure included Max Homa as one of his top PGA DFS picks on DraftKings. The result: Homa secured a sixth-place finish, recording almost 70 points on DraftKings. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on the way to a profitable weekend.
In addition, McClure's model is up well over $9,000 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament. This same model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.
Now, McClure has set his sights on the Palmetto Championship 2021 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 2021 Palmetto Championship.
Top 2021 Palmetto Championship PGA DFS picks
One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for the Palmetto Championship 2021 is Sungjae Im at $9,700 on DraftKings and $11,600 on FanDuel.
Im ranks inside the top 10 in a number of important statistical categories, which will help return solid value for your PGA DFS lineups at the 2021 Palmetto Championship. He enters this week's event ranked seventh in strokes gained: off-the-tee (.644), 14th in driving accuracy percentage (69.23) and 12th in total putting (103.9). Im is a complete steal at this price point, and McClure recommends you lock him in your PGA DFS lineups and look for a big return at Congaree.
McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Tyrrell Hatton at $10,200 on DraftKings and $11,800 on FanDuel. Hatton broke through for his first career victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2020, but he's no stranger to success. The 29-year-old Englishman has six international victories and he's recorded three top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour this season.
He enters the 2021 Palmetto Championship ranked 11th in strokes gained: approach the green (.748), 10th in sand save percentage (61.70) and 24th in strokes gained: total (1.236). Hatton also ranks inside the top-25 in putting average (1.727), total putting (121.8) and 3-putt avoidance (1.85). Hatton is one of the most consistent putters on tour, and if he's draining putts at Congaree, he'll have a great shot at finishing near the top of the leaderboard at the 2021 Palmetto Championship.
