A star-studded field heads to The Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California for the 2020 Genesis Invitational. Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Phil Mickelson are just a few of the marquee names and world’s top golfers in the field of 120.
The PGA’s best will be challenged by small greens and a par 71 course that plays 7,322 yards. It’s a track that Tiger is yet to conquer in a dozen tries. If El Tigre is going to lift his first Genesis trophy, he’ll probably need to card a final score in the -14 to -17 range.
The last four winners:
- 2019 – JB Holmes -14
2018 – Bubba Watson -12
2017 – Dustin Johnson -17
2016 – Bubba Watson -15
Can Bubba make it three out of the last five, wearing the Genesis crown in all the even years since 2016?
DFS and BETS will breakdown some numbers for Daily Fantasy Golf players to help you assemble your Genesis Invitational DFS Golf roster.
First up, rebound candidates. These are golfers who scored well below their Draftkings’ average in their last outing and could be inline for a big bounce back. Their also likely to have lower than usual ownership due to their recent lackluster performance.
- Patrick Reed – 59.93 points below his average
Cameron Smith – 56.83
Scottie Scheffler – 50.25
Ryan Palmer – 48.93
Matthew Wolff – 48.57
Justin Rose – 47.5
Andrew Putnam -45.43
Ryan Moore – 43.67
Erik Van Rooyen – 42
Each of missed the cut last time out. Only Scottie Scheffler missed his last two. Cameron Smith had the worst finish two tournaments ago, finishing 64th. Otherwise, the rest of the guy ended no worse than 37th two starts back. There could be some value here.
Speaking of value, DFS Golf players that like to load up on BIG NAMES need to find some low-priced players that have a chance to score points and make the cut. DFS and BETS scoped out nine names under $7,000 that appear to be in cut making form.
- Brian Harman
It could be one of these gentlemen gets your Daily Fantasy Team in-the-money, hopefully way up the leaderboard as they are all likely to have low ownership rates.
