We are a week away from the PGA Playoffs, but before then we have plenty of money to make. For this season’s Rocket Mortgage Classic, we will focus more on strokes gained on approach, greens in regulation, strokes gained off the tee, birdie or better scoring, and strokes gained putting. Weather-wise, things are looking beautiful with temperatures in the mid-80s and zero wind in the forecast throughout the weekend. Weather is always a factor and subject to change, so checking DFS lineups closer to lock will be crucial. In this post, we use our full set of metrics and highlight some of our favorite golfers in the competition:
Kevin Kisner ($9,000-DK; +2200 to win)
Kisner is a golfer that we love to play on shorter courses, especially at the Detroit Golf Club. In this event, Kisner finished eighth last year and third the year prior.
Maverick McNealy ($8,300-DK; +4000 to win)
Looking to another golfer with excellent course history, McNealy finished twenty-first last year and eighth the year prior. Currently, McNealy has made his last four cuts, including two top ten finishes.
Aaron Baddeley ($7,600-DK; +6500 to win)
Down near the bottom of the player pool, Baddeley stands out as a golfer who made the cut in this event last season and has made the cut in seven of his last eight events this season.
