"DraftKings PGA: 2019 WGC St. Jude Picks and Analysis"
The Open was awesome. It was extremely entertaining watching Shane Lowry storm the field at Royal Portrush. The course was beautiful, challenging, and fair. It was humbling to see the best players in the world challenged by the windy and rainy conditions Sunday. I had a solid week in DK, but unfortunately, I was not on Shane Lowry. I will give the guy credit, playing 4 fabulous rounds of golf in front of his country. Bravo. No weeks off thought on the PGA Tour, as Lowry and his fellow PGA brethren will be in Memphis this week for the WGC St. Jude Classic.
The PGA Tour is in the Midwest again this week after a week jaunt to Ireland. Memphis and TPC Southwinds are playing host to the WGC St. Jude Classic. This is the first time that TPC Southwinds has hosted a WGC event, but it is not a stranger to PGA Tour events, as the St. Jude Classic has been played here since 1989. We shall see if the tournament officials have altered the set-up due to the step-up in class of golfers competing this year.
TPC Southwinds is playing slightly under 7,250 yards and will play as a par-70. The course sports a ton of water, ranking 1st on the Tour in water-balls last year. The fairways are narrow, the greens are average-sized, and the rough is typically not too penal. Bombers and accuracy golfers have had success here. We return to Bermudagrass this week, which is a huge advantage to the golfers who are familiar with the surface. What I will put a lot of emphases this week is approach, Par-4 scoring, and Bermudagrass putting. My estimate is that the winner of this tournament posts an 18-under.
DK Scoring Gained
Putting Bermudagrass Gained
