2020 Waste Management Phoenix Open - Value DFS Picks

Based on the statistics on Golf Predictor for the 2020 Waste Management Phoenix Open, here is my analysis of the tournament for DFS (DraftKings) purposes. Anyone can pick the top golfers for their line-up, but it's the roster fillers that can make or break your chances. Therefore, I will concentrate on low and mid salary picks and exclude any golfers above $7600. Of course, you are free to disagree and log in to Golf Predictor to make your own informed choices for the event!


To maximise your scoring potential, it's important to get as many of your line-up through the cut as possible. Therefore, I will look for golfers with a good recent record in each of the stats examined. This generally means relatively long cut streaks, although in some cases, I allow one aberration if the golfer's record is good otherwise. Golfers with shorter streaks of good results will also be listed. For this tournament, the stats I will look at are current form, course/tournament form and same region form.

Current Form Golfers

The following golfers have relatively good recent records or long cut streaks in their salary bracket:

Mark Hubbard (excluding one event) - $6200
C.T. Pan (excluding last event) - $6500
Brian Stuard - $6600
Kevin Tway (excluding one event) - $6700
Talor Gooch - $7000
Matt Jones - $7000
Max Homa - $7100
Scott Piercy - $7100
Denny McCarthy - $7200
Tom Hoge (hot last 3 events) - $7400
Andrew Putnam - $7500
Vaughn Taylor - $7500
J.T. Poston (excluding one event) - $7600

Course/Tournament Specialists

The following golfers have relatively good records in their salary bracket at the tournament itself:

Chris Kirk - $6300
John Huh - $6400
Brian Stuard - $6600
Martin Laird - $6700
Brian Gay - $6700
Matt Jones - $7000
Zach Johnson (excluding last event) - $7300
Charley Hoffman - $7400
Brendan Steele (excluding last year) - $7500

Same Region Performers

The following golfers have relatively good recent records or long cut streaks in their salary bracket in the same region as this week's event:

Mark Hubbard - $6200
Trey Mullinax - $6500
Kevin Chappell (excluding last event) - $6500
Sam Ryder (excluding last event) - $6600
Brian Stuard - $6600
Max Homa - $7100
Scott Piercy - $7100
Emiliano Grillo (excluding last event) - $7300
Zach Johnson (excluding last event) - $7300
J.T. Poston - $7600
Russell Knox - $7600


Brian Stuard looks like a great choice as he features in all three lists. Scott Piercy, Max Homa, Matt Jones, J.T. Poston and Mark Hubbard all feature in two of the lists, so they might be worth considering as low and mid value picks this week.

I didn't do too badly in my first week! While Stuard bombed, Homa, Piercy & Hubbard all turned out to be great picks! Poston was a solid choice too, although Jones missed the cut. Knox, Hoge, Laird, Hoffman, Huh & Pan all made the cut and were mentioned above too.
