Every week the PGA CHEAT SHEET will be updated with the field and stats necessary to look into when determining your lineups. We have included 101 from the field this week in the spreadsheet. If anyone needs to be mentioned, they will below.
Hello Everyone! We’ve finally made it to 2017 and now we’ll have golf each week for pretty much the next ten months! On top of the terrific spreadsheet I will be providing analysis via the stats shown throughout the spreadsheet each week!
Generally, the goal is to have a lineup of all six golfers making the cut. Some weeks it will vary, but a majority of the time, six is the goal. Every week the spreadsheet will be updated with the field and stats necessary to look into when determining your lineups. This week, we truly begin the season with a normal sized field, cuts, and deep competition. We’ll want to begin searching for guys who can make cuts, rather than take a risk on high reward, high risk guys. Let’s discuss this weeks slate!
KEY STATS FOR THIS WEEK:
- Strokes Gained Tee to Green
- Strokes Gained Putting
- Birdie or Better
- Fairways Hit
- Par 4 Scoring
– DFS PGA Plays of the Week –
Hideki Matsuyama ($11000)
- Are people really considering fading him due to his course history? Typically I hold course history very much over a golfers head when deciding who to sit and start each week, but come on. As I’ve alluded to in the past, Hideki is in the midst of a historical run, one we probably haven’t seen since Tiger Woods in his prime. He’s finished no worse than 2nd since The TOUR Championship where he finished 5th. Hasn’t missed a cut since August at The Barclays, and had two more top fives to precede that missed cut. Now, at Waialae CC, Matsuyama has finished no better than T78 which is a MDF but how highly do we hold that against him? We’ve seen plenty of golfers with poor history waltz in and perform at a high level. In this historic run, it’s impossible to fade Matsuyama. He’ll be chalk, and that’s not something to mess with in cash games. He’s the man to build around and if you’re multi-entering tournaments, then a fade is in play.
