Gary Woodland heads to Winged Foot Golf Club looking to defend his title starting on Thursday at the 2020 U.S. Open, but should the four-time PGA Tour champion be included in your PGA DFS lineups? With a 2020 U.S. Open field that features the likes of Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jon Rahm, Bryson DeChambeau and Tiger Woods, Woodland will have his hands full if he wants to repeat. He has recorded just two top-10 finishes since the PGA Tour restarted and enters the U.S. Open 2020 having finished outside the top 30 in four consecutive starts.
Woodland is listed at just $7,800 on DraftKings and $9,500 on FanDuel, so rostering him means you could potentially load up on big names in the 2020 U.S. Open DFS player pool. Should Woodland be part of your PGA DFS strategy, or should you look elsewhere when finalizing your PGA DFS picks? Before entering any PGA DFS tournaments or cash games for the 2020 U.S. Open, 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.
Two weeks ago at the Tour Championship, McClure was extremely high on Justin Thomas as one of his top picks for PGA DFS lineups. The result: Thomas climbed the leaderboard and earned a second place finish, his 10th top-10 finish of the season. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge weekend.
In addition, McClure nailed three of his best bets to open the FedEx Cup Playoffs at the Northern Trust, including a +700 top-five bet on Daniel Berger. 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 bet on him to win at 22-1. It also had him as the projected winner heading into the weekend.
McClure's model was also all over long shot winner Collin Morikawa at the Workday Charity Open. It identified him as a top contender from the start despite his long odds and McClure recommended an outright bet on him to win at 33-1. The model also called Bryson DeChambeau taking the Rocket Mortgage Classic and has nailed two of the last four majors entering the weekend.
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 U.S. Open.
Top 2020 U.S. Open PGA DFS picks
One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for the U.S. Open 2020: Matthew Wolff at $7,700 on DraftKings and $9,600 on FanDuel. The former Oklahoma State star turned professional last June and won an event in just the fourth start of his career at the 3M Open.
Wolff has since risen to No.36 in the Official World Golf Ranking and recorded two top-five finishes since the PGA Tour's restart. Wolff ranked 12th in strokes gained off the tee during the 2019-20 season, and his length off the tee should give him more potential birdie opportunities than most at the 7,477-yard venue.
McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Viktor Hovland at $8,000 on DraftKings and $9,700 on FanDuel. Hovland is quickly making a name for himself on the PGA Tour. Despite being just 22-years-old, Hovland recorded his first PGA Tour victory and racked up three top-10 finishes during the 2019-20 PGA Tour season.
Hovalnd made it all the way to the Tour Championship and finished the season ranked in the top 25 in a number of important statistical categories, which will help return plenty of value for your PGA DFS lineups at the U.S. Open 2020. He was 22nd in scoring average (70.060), 16th in putting average (1.726), seventh in strokes gained approaching the green (.633) and 20th in strokes gained tee to green (.837).
