PGA DFS Playbook - WGC: Mexico Championship
Drew Phelps explores every Fairway, reads every Green and uses his DFS Golf experience to put together a winning DFS Playbook for the WGC: Mexico Championship.
We are changing things up a bit this season. Typically for a small field event like the WGC, I would just release example lineups but I'll be giving you a limited playbook as well. One thing that does not change is my recommendation to avoid cash games this weekend. You've got just 72 golfers and a no cut format, and that means in cash games there is no room for error in your lineup. When my example lineups come out later this afternoon, there will be two GPPs with pivots for both DraftKings and Fanduel. You will also see a full playbook and examples come out for the Puerto Rico Open.
This first World Golf Championship event of the 2020 calendar year takes us to the Mexico Championship at Club de Golf Chapultepec. The name of the game this weekend is altitude. This course sits at 7,382 feet above sea level. The BMW Championship has previously been held in Denver, Colorado which sits at 5,280 feet above sea level and the European Tour event called the Nordea Masters in the Swiss Alps is at 4,922 feet above sea level. Most of these golfers participating this weekend have played at this course before but if they haven't, they have played in altitude before. Club de Golf Chapultepec measures out 7,355 yards but will play much shorter because of the altitude. There is a fear that these already big hitters could have a problem controling the distances they'll be able to drive the ball but Dustin Johnson has won here twice in the last 3 years, so I would not worry about that. The key stats to target this weekend are Strokes Gained: Approach to the Green, Proximity to the Hole, Par 4 Scoring, and Strokes Gained: Putting,
My One And Done Play of the Week: Justin Thomas and yes that does mean you can play him this week despite not actually being in my playbook.
