It’s time for someone to become a millionaire this week in PGA DFS — will it be you?! Here is my 2019 PGA Championship DFS Cheat Sheet.
- Tiger Woods — I am not sure he can win back-to-back majors, but it will be fun watching him try.
- Dustin Johnson — I will be at least 30% in on DJ. This course lines up so well with his skill set.
- Rory McIlroy — I’ve been waiting for the breakout performance all season. It could be this week, and I am more than willing to put him on 20% of my teams.
- Brooks Koepka — Play Brooks in all Majors! Fade at your own peril!
- Justin Rose — With Justin Thomas out with a wrist injury, I am going to push those shares to the other Justin who might be a bit underpriced.
- Rickie Fowler — Can he finally win a Major? 25% of my lineups think so.
- Jason Day — Day at 9K pairs nicely with DJ and/or Brooks on at least a few of my lineups.
- Jon Rahm — He’s had a solid season and should contend here if his putter is solid.
- Francesco Molinari — Not sure he hits big enough for this course, but he has arguably been the best player in the world in the past 12 months.
- Xander Schauffele — Normally X brings his A game to Majors.

- Matt Kuchar — Kuch is a tad expensive, but he’s an excellent bet for a top 15 finish.
- Tony Finau — A bomber who could finish top ten here or miss the cut. Worth a gamble as he is a big-time DK scorer.
- Jordan Spieth — Although he’s been awful for the better part of 18 months, I can never count Spieth out of a Major. I will have him on one or two teams (max) just in case he remembers he’s Jordan Spieth.
- Hideki Matsuyama — His iron play is magical; his putting is suspect.
- Paul Casey — Man, he killed me in the Masters, but he’s too good not to finish top 20.
- Patrick Reed — Won the Barclay’s at this same course in 2016. The closest thing we have to a course horse in this field.
- Adam Scott — If he can put somewhat decently, he can win this tournament. An elite ball striker.
- Bubba Watson — I can’t explain it, but I have a great feeling Bubba shows up to this one.
- Patrick Cantlay — He’s super chalky at this price and will be owned by 30% of the field.
- Phil Mickelson — Always a threat to finish top ten, but is his driver good enough for Bethpage Black?
- Sergio Garcia — Not sure he puts well enough to win this, but he could be top ten if he gets off to a hot start on Thursday.
- Louis Oosthuizen — My favorite non-major winner. When he’s on, he can really score. Hopefully, his back issues don’t flare up.
- Henrik Stenson — We all know he hits a 3-Wood better than his driver (so do I), but he is a top not-iron player and has the stomach to make a deep run.
- Gary Woodland — Dark horse to finish high in the standings.
- Webb Simpson — Killed me at Quail Hollow, but Bethpage Black is a similar course, and Webb should play well here.
- Jason Kokrak — He might be the hottest golfer this season.
- Cam Smith — He loves POA greens and is always undervalued.
- R. Cabrera Bello — Great price for a solid player.
- Lucas Glover — Why is no one talking about him? Flying under the radar and could be hanging around on Sunday.
- Thomas Pieters — If you followed the Euro Tour, you would know that this guy is one of the best players in the world.
- Ryan Palmer — Not a sexy pick, but at 7200 I can see using him in a bunch of lineups as a cheap fill-in.
- Jhonny Vegas — My pivot from Palmer. Great player when he’s locked in — which he has been all season.
- Emiliano Grillo — Played well here at the Barclay’s. Often fades on the weekend.
- Charlie Hoffman — Cut maker who will be much lower owned than Vegas.
Under $7K Range
- Eddie Pepperell — Playing well in Europe but not sure he hits far enough to win.
- Jorge Campillo — if you follow the Euro tour, you know how solid his game is.
- Ross Fisher — Excellent POA player.
- Julian Suri — Will use in stars and scrubs lineups only.
- Lee Westwood — Always finds a way to go -2 on tough courses.
- Corey Conners — Can he play as he did six weeks ago? Love the price point.
- Matt Wallace — I used him earlier this season at Honda, and he did well. Under the radar player.
- Erik van Rooyen — Playing well in Asia and could make the cut here.
- David Lipsky — See van Rooyen
- Scott Piercy — The chalk in this price range. He will be 25% owned with good reason.
- Dylan Frittelli — Cut-maker at a super low price (6300).
- Adam Hadwin — Piercy will be the chalk at this price range, but Hadwin can always surprise. Plus he will be 2% owned tops.
