PGA DFS: Make the Cut Cash Game Picks for the Sanderson Farms Championship

Jason Rouslin

Published

The purpose of this PGA DFS Picks article is to help you “Make the Cut” in fantasy golf. Life on the European and PGA Tour can be grand but only if you make the weekend, and not coincidentally, the same goes for DFS Golf. The more golfers you have that Make the Cut, the better chance you’ll have at scoring more points. Simple. So, this article serves as a must-read for those playing cash games (50-50’s, head-to-heads, etc.) each week. Unlike GPPs, which are all about building unique lineups that focus on high upside and high variance plays, cash game lineups should be made up of safer plays.

Contest and Fantasy Golf Lineup Strategy

Before we get into a recap, I think it’s essential to set the stage on how I attack cash games. I like to limit my bankroll to nothing more than 25% of my yearly roll, which this year candidly, I started with $10,000 in the “till.” So with that said, I invest upwards of $500 to $1000 in cash games. I will play a variety of head-to-head matches that include:

  • Randomly selected opponents at the and five-dollar level
  • Selected Opponents at the $10 $20 and $50 $100 levels.

I will run anywhere from one to four lines using the eight players from this article and maybe one or at the most two more. And I’ll put my “best” lineup in the single entry massive double contests at the $25 and $50 levels and will play one $215 winner take all three man as my “big” cash gameplay.

Recap of last week:

Overall it was a good week for the article, and for my cash lines, as Hovland and Niemann alone got you pretty close. If you were able to mix in Scheffler and Griffin as I did on one line, then you had a darn good lineup. Only Mackenzie Hughes was truck slamming after Friday.

Favorite ($10,000+)

N/a

Secondary ($8000-$9000)

Scottie Scheffler ($9,900/$11,000)

I have no problem starting my lineups here this week. Compared to last week where I wanted to jam in Hovland. It did not crush me, as I still profited for the week, but it limited my Joaquin Niemann exposure. This week, I am not going to take the bait and will start most of my lineups with Scheffler. He gained over two strokes with his approaches last week and .89 off the tee, almost three strokes, while Niemann only gained 1.65 ball striking and won the tournament. A bit of an uptick in putting and Scottie could win here pretty soon.

Corey Conners ($9,600/$10,200)

After finishing the 2018-2019 season with a win, and first in proximity from 200-plus yards, among many other statistical feats including ninth in SG: T2G, Conners will look to build off of that great year he had. He is also an outside consideration for a captains pick for the international team at the Presidents Cup, and I have a feeling a win would go a long way to getting that chance to play in his first President’s Cup.

Value Picks ($7999-$6,000) 

Sebastian Munoz ($7,900/$9,600)

Four straight made cuts dating back to the John Deere, Munoz almost had it all come together, but just fell a bit shy with his putter last week, and winded up finishing seventh.  His best statistical category was his approaches, where he has gained strokes four out of his last five starts. There was nothing too extraordinary until last week, where he gained just shy of six shots over the four rounds. He also gained off the tee and around the green, something I am backing continuing into this week.

Sepp Straka ($7,200/$8,900)

Ball striking was not Sepp’s problem last week, gaining an average of 1.32 strokes over the first two rounds, but it was actually his work around the green that cost him a paycheck, losing almost four strokes over the first two rounds. It is not often that we see a golfer miss the cut after gaining strokes ball striking and putting! That must be a first. Also, this week should allow him to use that power off the tee a little more so than last week, so while I was off the Sepp chalk train last week, I am hopping aboard this week in hopes that many others will not.
