PGA DFS, Tour Championship 2019: Best DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy golf lineups, picks
SportsLine's Mike McClure, a DFS pro with almost $2 million in winnings, gives optimal lineup advice
PGA DFS players entering tournaments, cash games, or 50-50s on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings for the 2019 Tour Championship have plenty of tough choices to make. Investing in high-end golfers Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas or John Rahm is one way to guarantee production, but all three come with hefty price tags on both sites. They'll eat up a large portion of your PGA DFS salary cap, so making the right call will be critical when evaluating the 2019 Tour Championship DFS slate. Before you enter any Tour Championship DFS tournaments like the $800K Drive the Green on DraftKings or the $200K PGA Eagle on FanDuel, see what SportsLine's Mike McClure has to say. He's a professional DFS player with almost $2 million in career winnings and his top picks, optimal lineups and PGA DFS advice can help you build the perfect roster.
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 BMW Championship, McClure rostered Patrick Cantlay on FanDuel and DraftKings. The result: Cantlay fired four rounds of 68 or under on his way to a score of 22-under and a second-place finish. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge weekend.
Now, McClure has set his sights on the Tour Championship 2019 and has revealed his optimal PGA Tour DFS lineups. You can only see them at SportsLine.
One player McClure is rostering this week: Rory McIlroy at $11,400 on FanDuel and $10,600 on DraftKings.
McIlroy enters the final event of the 2019 FedEx Cup Playoffs full of confidence after finishing in the top 10 in four of his last six starts on the PGA Tour. The four-time major champion enters East Lake Golf Club hitting the ball extremely well off the tee, averaging 314 yards per drive this season. His ability to drive the ball deep into the fairway allows him to use his short irons to approach the green. That combination has allowed McIlroy to hit nearly 70 percent of greens in regulation, which has resulted in plenty of low scores. In fact, the 16-time PGA Tour winner comes into the 2019 Tour Championship ranked second on Tour in scoring average (69.203) and third in birdie average (4.45).
McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Dustin Johnson at $10,100 on FanDuel and $8,400 on DraftKings.
Johnson, who's returned over 5x value on DraftKings in four of his last five starts, has made plenty of noise this season on the PGA Tour. He earned his 20th career PGA Tour victory at the WGC-Mexico Championship after shooting 21-under par. He's also racked up seven top-10 finishes this season, including runner-up performances at the Masters and PGA Championship.
Johnson, who's tied with McIlroy and Tiger Woods for the most career wins in the FedEx Cup Playoffs with four, enters the 2019 Tour Championship ranked in the top 10 in driving distance (311.7), scoring average (69.693) and birdie average (4.32).
McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who's primed to blow up this week, giving you a huge return on both sites. Picks like these could be the difference between winning your PGA DFS contests or going home with nothing.
