PGA DFS Golf Picks Today: AT&T Byron Nelson Round 3

Round 2 Recap

Morning Wave

With Sebastian Munoz taking a four-shot lead into round two but not teeing off till the afternoon, it was expected at least a few golfers from the morning wave would eclipse him. That would be done first by Ryan Palmer, who continues the play Palmer in Texas narrative, as he had a day’s best 62 moving him up the to the top of the leaderboard. David Skinns, who has played some decent golf recently, also sits at that number after shooting 66 and 63 in the first two rounds. Justin Lower was just short of that number after backing up his opening round 64 with a 66.

Other solid rounds from this wave included Davis Riley, who shot an eight-under 64 after opening with an even-par 72. A few others shot that score this morning, including Lanto Griffin and Lanto Griffin. Lastly, the stars from this wave all moved into position as Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Scottie Scheffler all shot in the mid-60s for the second straight day.

 Afternoon Wave

Munoz would start the day three back and would get off to a bit of a rocky start. He’d mend that, though, and shot a 69, which would tie him atop the leaderboard. The afternoon wave belonged to Alex Noren, who shot a nine-under 63, one of only two golfers to shoot better than eight under from this afternoon wave. The other is Emiliano Grillo, who is now finding form. Hideki Matsuyama has been the best stud from this wave, as he posted two scores in the mid-60s and it’s just four back heading into the weekend. Xander Schauffele would have the best battle back; after being three-over for the event thru 21 holes, he turned it on and shot eight-under his final 15 holes today and made the cut on the number. Dustin Johnson will also play the weekend after a rocky start in round two.

Best PGA DFS Picks Today for the AT&T Byron Nelson DraftKings Showdown

Xander Schauffele ($9,100)

Tail Awesemo's Sports Betting Picks Today!

After opening with a terrible even par 72 in round one, Xander’s tournament looked all but over after starting par bogey double today, but after a par on the par-five 5th, Xander Turned it on. He’d birdie eight of his final 13 holes, just getting him inside the cutline. He finally found both the putter and the approach game, which should continue into the weekend. Xander also is much cheaper than he’s been all week and should be low owned as well. A triple box checker with good momentum, low ownership, and cheaper price.

Mito Pereira  ($7,900)

Pereira’s back would be a question after a few weeks’ break after an in-tournament withdrawal at the Zurich Classic. But he’s looked healthy after a couple of weeks’ rest and is right back in the mix here after two rounds. He’s also the only golfer, other than Matsuayama, that has lost strokes putting thru two rounds and still ranked inside the top 10. So, if that flips this weekend and the irons stay hot, he could jump up the board in a hurry.

Lanto Griffin ($7,900)

Speaking of jumping up the board in a hurry, Lanto’s ball-striking has been on fire these last three weeks, and finally, here in round two, the putter followed. He gained over three strokes on the day, a breakout waiting to happen. He’s gained over 1.3 strokes on the approach in each of the two rounds while remaining consistent off the tee. Griffins’ form should continue over the weekend as he searches for his second straight top 10.

Other Low Owned Targets for PGA DFS Round 3 of the AT&T Byron Nelson

  • Cameron Champ ($7,800)
  • Brandon Wu ($6,900)
  • Adam Schenk ($6,800)
