If you’ve played PGA TOUR Fantasy Golf and are on the fence to burn the final start to any of your potential in the PGA Championship, your best hypothetical approach is to open up with any of these candidates on your seat and leave them there for up to 36-cut falls. (Reminder: The cut-out in the PGA Championship is as low as 70 and tied.)

With only two championships left in Part 3, and fantasy results expected to be low at Southern Hills Country Club, there is no reason to rush into any golfer unless they are likely to play in Colonial and/or Muirfield Village where they will be the highest fantasy.
Consider your experience at Wells Fargo just two weeks ago when actual results were among the highest of the season. Until the novice bonus points were applied to the last round, the suspension of zero in any round was addition by subtraction. For example, Matt Kuchar played in all four rounds. He finished the T49 at 7-over 287 and scored one fantasy point, via his FedExCup bonus. In other words, if there’s a week to sit on the buttons, that’s it.
The nice thing about the PGA Championship – other than the amazing track – is that the field is deeper than any other aspect of THE PLAYERS Championship. Mix in one or two hard-charging international players who age from time to time to book a start for one or two who plan to contribute more in the next two weeks.
Wild card energy ratings
Shane Lowry (+125 for the top 20) …that’s a major, so it’s legitimate to be a proper Strength Rankings extension. In fact, based on the reaction to PR, it’s playful, and I can’t disagree even though I’m writing the thing. The massive model upon arrival with all the data supporting persistence, did nothing to justify concern. But if he finishes alone in 21st place, I’m a genius.
Dustin Johnson (+110 for the top 20) …in his prime as a married man, he finished T59 at AT&T Byron Nelson, but there’s nothing to read there, gang. Expectations of success are always high for a 24 times PGA Tour winner so every forgettable emotionally connected score feels personal, but Southern Hills will reward their strengths from the tee to the green, so go ahead and push for something even stronger than this the bet.
Terrell Hutton (+225 for the top 20) … in the numbers game in the power ratings, just missed. In his last four matches in singles competition, he has not finished better than T21, and none of those have been in a field as dense as this week. So, he’s moving on well as the cornerstone to make the cut and take his talents to the weekend.
Taylor Gotsch (+333 for the top 20) …it’s easy to speak favorably of anyone in the field with connections to Sooner State, but it’s the right call for a native and resident of Midwest City, an eastern suburb of Oklahoma City 90 miles southwest of the Southern Hills. While he’s been a bit quiet since his superb title at The RSM Classic six months ago, he still hooks up with his Top Twenties on a regular basis. One of the best players around the Greens and currently leads the PGA Tour in scoring grade 3, a handy weapon in the wind.
Keegan Bradley (+250 for the top 20) …Fun fact: On the day I was hosting and producing live script talks at Rotoworld, at the end of the 2011 PGA Championship suspension period, a reader just asked for the name of the long shot. My answer: Keegan Bradley. Sho’nuff, the then-rookie of the PGA TOUR came out and prevailed in Atlanta in what was his major debut. He actually won a Nelson award that season, so my shortlist was limited to new winners, but Bradley also ticked all the boxes statistically. With four years of weekly hands-on experience analyzing sports and over 15 years playing fantasy, I was confident. The Keegs has been a dynamite in the tough courses for the past couple of months, so it’s no longer out of reach.
Brian Harman (+450 for the top 20) …keeps to stay. He went through a late-commit process with AT&T Byron Nelson only to quit early, but even though the TPC Craig Ranch’s field strength rating was a solid 371, he may have decided to contribute to the divisor in the official world golf rankings via the PGA Championship only were the better move. To get a better position To qualify for the Open Championship through the top 50 tournaments. Whatever the case, the T9 finished the previous week in testing outside DC, making up for the relative distance lost from the tee with precision and accuracy in approach. A confident short game that continues to pay off the efforts.
Sheamus’ power (+333 for the top 20) …the 35-year-old didn’t qualify for a major until his master’s last month. Like more and more beginners at the Augusta National in the last two editions, he broke the trend that required trial and finished the T27. He’s 23rd in the FedExCup with four of the top 10 players and six other top 25 teams, but he’s coming up as a sleeper this week because of the star power around him. His analyzes are remarkable and he deserves the full value of this bet.

KH Lee… Checks to see if the PGA Championship is competing at TPC Craig Ranch. no? okay then. He’s better equipped to handle the comedy after defending his title in Texas than his surprise breakthrough last year, but the fact remains that he’s zero-for-5 in a major. There’s no reason to expect lightning to hit that bottle again this soon.
Webb Simpson… sure to repeat the lament, ho still He hasn’t collected four rounds since returning from missing two months due to a herniated disc in his neck.
Marc Leishman… On Twitter Spaces for GolfBet before AT&T Byron Nelson, I mentioned that I had accidentally drifted into a position as a defender in support of the Australian dollar. Absence of a top ten in seven months does not seem possible given how convenient it is for all reasons. Until last week, he had an Eagle -1, -2 and a pair of -3, but he managed to finish T51. The cynic in me believes that, among the golfers who have taken on the Rivera Challenge, Bay Hill, TPC Sawgrass, The Match Play, Augusta National, team coordination at NOLA and the challenge at TPC Potomac at Avenell Farm, someone would fall near an end point for disappointing returns. . The silence could not go on, and it should have ended last week, but there was no reason to believe that he was making noise in Southern Hills after so many strong looks without even meeting one’s expectations.
Abraham Anser… There has been no Top 30 in stroke play competition in seven consecutive starts and no Top 25 matches in the same format on the PGA Tour since Mayakoba in November. South of the hills is not a path where he will find an elixir either.
Bubba Watson…Must love how the topography of the course visually fits in with his playing style, but the format isn’t there. The turning point was the Riviera where he had a lot of success and still missed the cut despite months of inspiring performances.
Tony Finau… He’s showing signs that his throw is close to the corner but not enough to warrant hope for something special beyond the line.
Matthew Wolfe… Well, I was aboard TPC Craig Ranch last week, but this did not work. If it wasn’t an Oklahoma State University product, I might have overlooked it, but he still struggled to put two rounds together, less than four.
Cameron Tringle… Your loyal readers already know what’s coming. In 21 matches in the major tournaments and players, he has only been paid 10 times and only once for the top 25 players (T16, 2016 players). Bottom line, his game hasn’t played out on the biggest stages.

Back to competition
Bryson DeChambeau… Easily a question mark as we encroach on the opening round. He underwent surgery to repair the femur in his left hand On the 14th of April.
Daniel Berger…be warned here. He was scheduled to play the Mexico Open in Vedanta but withdrew early due to back pain. Fine. This is an international flight. However, his back also frustrated his title defense at Pebble Beach in February. Of course, in between those episodes, he went 5 vs. 5 with his fourth PGA National solo topping a Triple Out of the Top 25s.
Louis Oosthuizen… This is his first live action since he withdrew from the Masters before his second round with a backache. The irony was that one of his playing partners was Tiger Woods, he was back at the time and curious about the physical ability to complete two rounds, let alone make the cut and complete all 72 holes as he did. For the record, while Oosthuizen has dropped out twice during competition in the past six months (RSM), he hasn’t missed a cut since the 2020 edition of RSM.
Phil Mickelson… The defending champion was announced late last week It will remain aside indefinitely. He hasn’t played anywhere since early February.
Sungjae Im… Complications related to traveling from his native South Korea After testing positive for COVID-19, It made it impossible for him to reach the southern hills in time. He was among a handful of international players who chose not to compete in the 2021 Open as a result of challenges related to the pandemic.
Paul Casey…a severe discomfort in his back has prevented him from playing, or at least trying to play, since he pulled out midway through the tournament with only two holes in the first round of the game in late March. This is his third early WD since then.
Harris English… had been hoping to try it out for the first time since undergoing surgery to repair a torn tear in his right hip on February 14.
Jimmy Walker… has been out since he lost the wound at home in San Antonio. This is the first PGA Championship to miss since taking the title in 2016.
Davis Love III… recently withdrew after two rounds of the Mitsubishi Electric Classic at the PGA TOUR Champions. An explanation has not been released; It was T53 at the time. This is the fourth edition of the last seven PGA Championships that the 1997 winner has missed. He has missed the cut in his last seven appearances dating back to 2012.
