The BMW Championship is underway, and DFS golf Showdown contests take center stage as DraftKings is offering $50,000 to first place for today’s third-round slate. Be sure to check out Awesemo’s expert PGA DFS Showdown projections and ownership for The BMW Championship Round 3 daily fantasy golf slate. Let’s get into the best PGA DFS picks for DraftKings and FanDuel lineups.

PGA DFS Showdown Picks: BMW Championship Round 3

Previous Round Recap

With short par 4’s and reachable par 5’s, we knew the big hitters would stand a chance to have an advantage. Bryson DeChambeau showed that today, having the best shot at 59 we’d seen this year. A six-footer straight up the hill that blew wide would spoil a great round. DeChambeau’s 60 vaulted him straight to the top of the leaderboard. Patrick Cantlay had it going as well, getting it to 10-under on the round before bogeying 17 and making par on 18, and sits just one back of DeChambeau. Then, as Jon Rahm started his day, people wondered if we’d get a showdown with two of the biggest hitters in the game. Rain would spoil that, for the time being, as play was called due to darkness with still a few holes remaining. He’d fail to birdie any of the last three holes, and finished the day tied with Cantlay at -15.

Notables

Sungjae Im would find from with the putter, finally, gaining over two strokes in the round for the first time in quite a while. His ball-striking has been good, and remaining such in Round 2, and shot up the leaderboard with a 65. Kevin Na used the wedge and putt combo, gaining close to six strokes between the two stats. Rory McIlroy failed to get it going in Round 2, struggling with his iron play in round two and sits six back of DeChambeau. Brooks Koepka would also have his ball-striking bounce back in Round 2, but his putter wouldn’t stay hot. If he puts it all together on Saturday, he could jump into the top 10 with a seven-under 65 in the third round. Lastly, Aaron Wise has found some confidence with the putter, using the broom style made famous by Adam Scott, gaining over two strokes in the first two rounds.

The BMW Championship Round 3 PGA DFS Picks

The course doesn’t have much disparity and not a lot of bogey holes either. With that, it really comes down to a putting fest for the longer hitters, how hot a good putter can get with their irons.

  • Hideki Matsuyama ($8,300) Having Matsuyama right next to Cantlay could help keep ownership down a little bit, but, Matsuyama’s ball-striking is there and hard to fade. His putter isn’t yet, but he provides a solid floor at these prices.
  • Scottie Scheffler ($7,600) After a terrible day on and around the greens on Thursday, Scheffler bounced back in a big way, gaining over three strokes on Friday — a nine-shot difference. His ball-striking has remained along the line of field average but has shown a few pops both off the tee and on the approach in each of the first two rounds and shouldn’t garner too much attention from gamers.
  • Jordan Spieth ($9,300) Ownership is going to be close to 5% tomorrow, and he is certainly playing better than Collin Morikawa, who seems to be hurt. Obviously, Spieth isn’t playing much better, but a bogey-free round today does highlight that things are moving in the right direction. If he can pull a 62 out of his hat again, like he did last week at The Northern Trust, he’ll be among the top point-getters of the day, all with less than 5% ownership.

Sneaky Pick for the BMW Championship Round 3 DraftKings Showdown

  • Cam Davis ($6,500) After struggling with his iron play in Round 1, losing almost three strokes, Davis was bound for a bounce back. He did so while still losing off the tee, but did gain over a stroke with his approaches. His short game hasn’t been the problem this week, and typically the driver is much more of an asset. With two days under his belt, I suspect the tee-ball numbers will change for the better in Round 3.
