The Fit & Form Guide for the Rocket Mortgage Classic including Bryson DeChambeau & Aaron Wise for DraftKings + FanDuel PGA DFS lineups

During the 10-week hiatus, we worked on our content to deliver you the best possible info out there. One of those changes was combining the course history and recent form articles to showcase two of the most essential elements when building out lineups each week. Since we were on a 10-week hiatus, we’ll use form from this year and course history back to 2015. Let’s get into the PGA DFS Fit & Form guide for your daily fantasy lineups on DraftKings and FanDuel.


Recent Form Since the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am

Positives

  • It is a bit comical at this point, but Bryson DeChambeau has seven top-10s in his last eight starts. No other golfer has more than three in this field. Five have three: Patrick Reed, Joseph Bramlett, Sungjae Im, Bubba Watson and Tyrell Hatton. 
  • When we switch our criteria to top-30 finishes, Christiaan Bezuidenhout picked up six this year, while Viktor Hovland has five.
  • Only five golfers have made all their cuts with a minimum of three starts: DeChambeau, Hatton, Will Gordon, Kurt Kitayama and Jason Dufner. 
  • Nine other golfers have made at least 80% of their cuts in the last 10 tournament weeks, including Doc Redman, Harry Higgs, Joseph Bramlett, Maverick McNealy, Adam Hadwin and Stewart Cink.

Negatives

  • Three golfers have really struggled over the last 10 tournament weeks, missing seven cuts: Russell Knox, Ted Potter Jr. and Martin Trainer. Luckily for each of them, they’ve all earned a paycheck. For this next bunch of golfers, that isn’t the case. David Hearn has missed all six cuts, Lucas Bjerregaard and Andrew Putnam have missed all five and Michael Kim has missed the last two.
  • Fifty-one golfers will be in search of the first top-20 in the last 10 tournament weeks. I’ll highlight a few of those names here: Hadwin, Matt Wallace, Sam Burns, Doug Ghim, C.T. Pan, Austin Cook, Tyler Duncan, Aaron Wise and Kevin Tway. 
  • As one can assume, there are 100 golfers in the field that will be searching for their first top-10 in the last 10 tournament weeks.

Course History at Detroit Golf Club

Since we only have one year of data, this section is likely to be a lot shorter than most weeks.

Positives

  • Nate Lashley was superb with the putter, gaining over nine strokes on the week en route to his first PGA Tour victory.
  • Redman secured his playing status with a second-place finish here last year.
  • Im and Byeong-Hun An both ranked inside the top seven in strokes gained tee to green for the week.
  • Other good finishes include Reed and Brandt Snedeker.

Negatives

  • Thirty-two golfers are heading back to Detroit golf club that didn’t make the weekend last year. Some of those names include Watson, Duncan, Brian Harman, Luke List, Cameron Davis and Harold Varner III. 

Fit & Form

Now that we’ve covered both course history and recent form, let’s see if we can find any crossovers, either negative or positive.

  • With the driver being a big asset this week, it’s hard to overlook DeChambeau in any way, shape or form here.
  • Wise finally broke through and made a cut, and now heads to a course where birdies will be needed. He already has a win at a big-time scoring event, so it should be a good fit here. He came in 35th last year.
  • Stanley turned in his best performance last week and heads to a course that rewards good iron players. When Stanley is on, he’s one of the better ones on Tour.
  • A couple of other names include:
    • J.T. Poston
    • Sam Burns
    • Hideki Matsuyama
