Dr. Roto’s Visionary PGA Picks – CareerBuilder Challenge

There is a three-course rotation at the CareerBuilder Challenge, so charting for CH is virtually impossible to do this week. It’s also a 54-hole cut, which means that there will be way more people making it further into the tournament, so treat it more like a no-cut tournament and look for players who score big over cut-makers when you set your lineups.


Tier One Players (10K and up):

Jon Rahm (11800)—Worth every penny as he is the class of the event by far.

Brian Harman (11500)—Had a T4 last week and looks to be locked in.


Tier Two (8K-10K):

Webb Simpson (9700)—His improved putting stroke puts him squarely in the mix this week.

Brendan Steele (8900)—Blue Horseshoe loves Brendan Steele. Steele also has two top-tens here in the last three years.

Chez Reavie (8800)—Always plays well in the tourneys out West.

Austin Cook (8700)—A talented young player who could be top ten this week.

Bud Cauley (8400)—This Bud’s for you at this price. Great putter and usually lower owned.

Chris Kirk (8100)—Played well here last year was top ten at the Sony.


Tier Three (7K-8K):

J.J. Spaun (7900)—He played very well at the beginning of last year and I think that can happen again this season.

David Lingmerth (7800)—Not for the faint of heart as he is usually really good or really bad. He seems to like playing here though.

Adam Hadwin (7600)—He shot a 59 at La Quinta last year. Superb putter.

Jhonattan Vegas (7500)—He’s a much better player than he was two years ago, plus how can you not like a guy named Johnny Vegas?

Lucas Glover (7500)—Normally lower owned and could be there on Sunday.

Brian Stuard (7500)—Hasn’t played well here, but had a T4 last week which means his form is solid.

Ryan Armour (7400)—Playing well recently and like his price to help me afford Rahm, etc.

Scott Piercy (7400)—He usually kills me when I use him, but I like him in this spot. Has made the cut here the last two times he has played.


Under 7K:

Dominic Bozzelli (6800)—His price will start going up soon; this might be one of the last chances to get him under 7K.

Harold Varner III (6800)—Played very well for the first two rounds last year before just missing the cut.

Aaron Wise (6800)—Hurt me last week as a flyer, but willing to give him another shot.

Seamus Power (6700)—Had a T21 here last year and could help out at a low price.
