Tony Finau is expected to be among the top daily Fantasy golf picks this week for the 2023 American Express. Finau finished on top of the leaderboard at the Houston Open earlier this season and he's finished inside the top-10 in six of his last eight starts on the PGA Tour. However, daily Fantasy golf players will have to decide if he can be trusted when setting their PGA DFS strategy for the 2023 American Express, which gets underway from a trio of courses in La Quinta, Calif., on Thursday, Jan. 19.

With a PGA DFS player pool featuring Jon Rahm, Patrick Cantlay, Will Zalatoris and Xander Schauffele, PGA DFS players will have to decide which golfers are worth investing in. Can Finau, Rahm or Cantlay 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 lock in your PGA DFS picks for the 2023 American Express, check out the latest daily Fantasy golf picks, advice and player pool from SportsLine's Mike McClure.

Top 2023 American Express PGA DFS picks

One of McClure's top PGA DFS picks for The American Express 2023 is Cameron Young at $9,100 on DraftKings and $10,700 on FanDuel. Young certainly has the game to finish near the top of the leaderboard this week. The 25-year-old has yet to win on the PGA Tour, but he's finished inside the top-25 in six of his last eight official starts. 

Young is also currently ranked fifth in birdie average (5.25), 13th in greens in regulation percentage (75.46%) and 18th in driving distance (310.9). He's a complete steal at this price point, so confidently lock him in your PGA DFS lineups. 

McClure's optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Scottie Scheffler at $10,500 on DraftKings and $11,800 on FanDuel. Scheffler is coming off a strong showing at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, securing a T-7 finish in Hawaii. The No. 2 ranked player in the world has now finished T-9 or better in each of his last three official starts on the PGA Tour. 

The 26-year-old has all the tools needed to return solid value for your PGA DFS lineups this week at The American Express. Scheffler enters this week's event ranked inside the top-10 in several important statistics, including greens in regulation percentage (75.69%) and strokes gained: off-the-tee (.742). Lock him in your PGA DFS lineups and look for a big return this week. See who else to back right here
