Tony Finau ($9,000)
Throughout this season so far, Tony Finau is another player who’s been inconsistent. He’s registered a top-five and two top-10 finishes in his last five tournaments, but has also missed the cut in two of those five outings. Meanwhile, he missed out on the Round of 16 in match play. We know his upside, but it’s hard to bet on it right now.
Charles Howell ($8,900)
While Howell choked a two-hole lead away in the Round of 16 of the WGC-Dell Match Play, he’s been playing solid this season, albeit with some inconsistency. He has two top-10 finishes to his credit and three additional top-15 showings. He could be solid value here.
Steve Stricker ($8,800)
Steve Stricker’s season didn’t start until February, and he’s only played in three tournaments so far this year. However, he’s made all three cuts and has not finished worse than T31. Moreover, he’s improved with each showing, most recently with a T12 at the Valspar. The veteran might be a nice DraftKings choice this week.
Byeong-Hun An ($8,700)
You might see 8-of-12 made cuts and not like the inconsistency. However, the recent track record of An has been impressive, save for missing the cut at the Valspar. In the other four of his last five tournaments, he’s not finished worse than T23 and has two top-10 finishes and three top-15 finishes among his showings.
Emiliano Grillo ($8,500)
Grillo was the star last week at the Corales Puntacana tournament and submitted his worst showing of the season, ending up at T50. However, he’s not missed a cut in 11 tournaments this season, and has three top-10 finishes. That’s good enough to make you think that last week might’ve simply been an outlier for a player who is showing well right now.
Shubhankar Sharma ($8,400)
While Sharma hasn’t seen much of the PGA Tour this season, his one showing at the WGC-Mexico Championship was a T9 finish. Meanwhile, he’s registered two wins and four additional top-10 finishes on the European Tour. He’s a nice potential sleeper, even if an expensive one.
Bud Cauley ($8,200)
It’s been a hot-and-cold season thus far for Bud Cauley this year, and cold has shown up a lot lately with two missed cuts in his last three tournaments. However, he’s also been in the top 20 in two of his last four tournaments. It’s hard to say which one we’ll see this week, but he’s interesting because of his high-end potential at this price on DraftKings.
Patrick Rodgers ($8,100)
Rodgers went on a string of missed cuts late in 2017 and early in 2018. However, he’s made six-straight now and has three finishes of T26 or better, including one T7 finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. This is another potentially solid value play here.
