The 2021 WGC-Workday Championship will begin on Thursday at The Concession Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla. and the change of venue because of the coronavirus pandemic will present a markedly different challenge. The tournament is typically played at extremely high altitude at Club de Golf Chapultepec in Mexico City, but will instead be played on a 7,400-yard Jack Nicklaus design at sea level on the Gulf Coast. Bryson DeChambeau won the 2015 NCAA Championship at The Concession and that course knowledge could make him a favorite in the PGA DFS player pool this week.
However, DeChambeau has been inconsistent since his U.S. Open victory and even missed the cut last week at the Genesis Invitational thanks to an opening-round 75. With 48 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking in the 2021 WGC-Workday Championship field, are there better upper-echelon options for your PGA DFS lineups? Before entering any PGA DFS tournaments or cash games for the 2021 WGC-Workday Championship, you'll want to see the top PGA DFS picks and daily Fantasy golf advice 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 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, McClure was all over Daniel Berger at $10,100 on DraftKings and $11,600 on FanDuel. The result: Berger finished on top of the leaderboard, recording his fourth PGA Tour victory. Anybody who had him in their lineups was well on the way to a profitable weekend.
In addition, McClure's model is up over $11,100 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament. This is the same model that has nailed a whopping six 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 2021 WGC-Workday Championship.
Top 2021 WGC-Workday Championship PGA DFS picks
One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for the WGC-Workday Championship 2021: Jon Rahm at $11,100 on DraftKings and $11,900 on FanDuel. Rahm is currently the No. 2 player in the Official World Golf Ranking and, outside of Johnson, you'd be hard-pressed to find anybody who is playing more consistent golf right now.
Rahm hasn't finished worse than T-17th in his last seven worldwide starts and he has two wins, three runner-up finishes and a T-3rd finish since the PGA Tour restart last summer following the coronavirus shutdown. The greens at Concession are smaller than average and heavily undulating, so effective ball striking to keep the ball below the hole will be critical this week. Rahm is currently a career-best 14th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained on approach and continues to be one of the best in the world off the tee, so he'll be a serious factor this week.
McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Viktor Hovland at $9,400 on DraftKings and $10,800 on FanDuel. The 23-year-old Norwegian collected a pair of victories in his first full season on the PGA Tour and he's been knocking on the door of a third worldwide win in recent weeks.
Hovland tied for second at the 2021 Farmer Insurance Open, flew across the world to finish T-6 in the Saudi International and then returned to the West Coast two weeks later to finish T-5 at the 2021 Genesis Invitational last week. The former Oklahoma State star enters this week's event having finished sixth or better in five of his last six worldwide starts. His greens in regulation percentage (72.92), which ranks 11th on tour, should help make him a factor on the small, undulating greens of The Concession.
