DFS Golf: CIMB Classic – OB’s Lineup
The CIMB Classic is back, and so is OB’s Lineup.
After a short break, OB’s Lineup is back and in full effect. I would just like to say that I am very excited to be back writing this column, in the mess hall at my University. OB’s lineup is a Fanduel lineup created on Tuesday every week for people seeking guidance in the DFS Golf world. All the information provided can be used to help DFS PGA players on all platforms for the CIMB Classic.
Quick Reminder: All information used here is a guideline, feel free to use this as a basis for your own creative lineups! Have fun with it!
But wait, there’s more! The weekly release of this column will be accompanied by a primer and course preview page as well! This includes a description of the course, players who have had prior success at this tournament, and a weather report for the weekend! These will always come before the release of OB’s Lineup, so be on the lookout!
Lets get to it.
Statistics to Attack
The nature of TPC Kuala Lumpur appeals to the following statistical advantages:
While it’s a more simple approach this week, we’re looking for smart golfers who save themselves rather than burn themselves.

Justin Thomas ($13,000)
Thomas has been an absolute ANIMAL on this course and has dominated the CIMB Classic every time he plays. He’s won this tournament twice and that is enough for me to slot him in as our top buy. He is a quality investment, feel good about this pick in cash games because he is sure to be highly owned, but with the ensuing weather, I would stick to cash games this week. Build your bankroll.
Gary Woodland ($10,500)
Woodland has also shown quite a bit of success at this tournament in year prior but that is not the reason why I’m spending up on him this week. Woodland has been incredibly hot over the past month and a half, placing in the top 20 four out of six outings. Dive into the inferno, grab Woodland.
Billy Horschel ($10,400)
Billy Horschel has also been incredibly hot over his past handful of outings. The interesting part is that he fits all of the statistical measures as well. He basically fills every requirement you would like in a guy from this slate. Roll Horschel out with confidence. I shouldn’t have to say more. The recency bias may be real, but also remember.. there is no cut in this tournament. This should keep it interesting.
Kevin Na ($9,400)
Na is another example of a “historic” play. His past performances at this tourney and his recent play has earned him a spot in my lineups in this 9K range. He is the guy I want in the 9K range and he is the guy I need in this spot, especially with no cuts.
C.T. Pan ($8,500)
Those who have followed this column previously, you know how much I love rolling Pan out there. This is a spot that is more flexible. I simply always seem to find myself seeing Pan as undervalued and has a safe floor. Feel free to change this to whatever golfer you prefer, Pan is just my guy.
Brendan Steele ($7,900)
Steele is exactly what his name proclaims, a steal. With his course history, I can’t believe he is so cheap on Fanduel. Steele has been a stellar play at this tournament over the years and he is a guy that I recommend starting in all lineups. He helps spread your budget more toward the top of your team.
