Swing into Action – Mayakoba Golf Classic

In PGA by devinLeave a Comment

Welcome to Swing into Action! Our weekly PGA article, where we will break down 2 Cash game plays, a punt and a GPP play. Hope you enjoy and find as fun of a sweat as I do playing PGA DFS! 

The Course: 

El Camaleon Golf Club – Is a shorter course, playing under 7,000 yards. Short hitters thrive here, where the Par is 71 (only 3 Par 5s).  Hitting fairways is key here, which will set you up for success. Past winners are around -15 to -20 under for the weekend.

 

Cash Game Plays 

Russell Knox – Knox is the exact player we are looking for this weekend. Someone who doesnt bomb the ball, and its his fairways. Knox is coming in with some recent form as well, making his last 5 cuts on tour. Add in the fact that Knox is 6 of 6 at this course in making the cut and we are looking at a chalk play in cash. 

Harris English – English is playing some really good golf lately. In 3 of his last 4 starts, English has finished inside the top 6! English has not fared well here in recent years, but if you go back to 2013, you see where English won at this course. His price and recent form make in very attractive in cash game this week! 

Value Play 

Kevin Chappell – Coming in at a whopping 6,700 on DK this week is Kevin Chappell. Chappell is coming off a back injury. But in the 3 tournaments he has played in since his return he has made the cut in 2 of them. Chappell isnt a power hitter, he is more of hit the fairway and and attack this course with his approach game, which was top notch before his injury. Look for Chappell to be around top 25 come Sunday, which is all we are looking for at this discount price. 

GPP Play 

Jason Day – Day is sandwiched around Golfers like Kuchar / Hovland / Finau this week, which should lower his ownership. Day has not been playing good golf, dating back to last year. But this course is set up nicely for him. If Day can stay out of trouble this week and hit his fairways, then I can see being around come Sunday competing for a win. With his recent form, I am reserving Day for GPPs this week. 

 

I hope everyone enjoyed this weeks Swing into Action! Make sure to check out our cheat sheet and join our slack chat for Cores for Fanduel and Draftkings.
