Looking for a way to learn PGA DFS without jumping in with both feet? We have a perfect solution for you. Yahoo and Yahoo Fantasy are offering a $15,000 freeroll called the PGA “Yahoo Cup.” This contest awards a winner for weekly events and one winner at the end of the season who has the most cumulative points. It will go for 39 weeks, with the lowest nine weeks of scoring being dropped from your total score. Each week also features a $150-to-first contest, making every round matter just as much as the last. Let’s dig into this week’s top value plays for the Houston Open.

Course Preview: Memorial Park

The PGA Tour heads to Memorial Park for the second straight year, a municipal course in Houston. It is a par 70 measuring 7,400 yards that will challenge golfers with longer-than-normal rough and tough-to-hit green complexes. To learn more about this course, check out our free article The First Cut, released every Monday of the PGA Tour Calendar year.

Top Three PGA DFS Value Picks for the Houston Open

Adam Scott ($36)

Uncharacteristically, the best Australian Golfer ever had his worst season off the tee of his career last year. While putting has plagued Scott over the previous few years, he has seemed to turn a corner and feels much more comfortable with the flat stick. The driver either does not matter as much at this course because of the low fairways-hit percentage or turns around, so if Scott’s putting sticks around, he could be in line for another strong finish. He is coming off a fifth place in his last showing at the CJ Cup and is not in the top 10 salaries of this field. It is a great place to take advantage of a reasonable salary.

Chad Ramey ($25)

Coming off one of the best and most consistent seasons the Korn Ferry Tour has ever seen, Ramey struggled in his first two starts on the PGA Tour. He missed the cut at the Fortinet Championship and came in 63rd at the Sanderson Farms. But that allowed him to get his feed underneath him, and he has now come in the top 20 in each of his last two starts. Ramey hits fairways and greens at an above-average rate compared to the field, and since this course’s fairways and greens are tougher to hit, that could lead to his first top-10 on the PGA Tour.

Wyndham Clark ($20)

With a ton of talent and not a lot of results, Clark has come close a few times on the PGA Tour but is still looking for that breakthrough. He has a rare skillset that features a strong off-tee game and short game. However, Clark has struggled with his irons since joining the PGA Tour, which has hindered his results. One of his better starts on tour was the Honda Classic a few years ago, as he had a chance to win that event on a tough, grind-it-out course that emphasized the short game. That should be the same set of skills needed to succeed here, and at the minimum salary, Clark opens the lineup up for all types of builds.

Jason established his roots in the littlest state that could...Rhode Island. But after 29 years of bitter cold, and only being able to play golf 4 months a year, upended those roots and moved to Florida. Now two years later, Jason is a husband to Sarah and father of James as well as two Labradors (Choco and Bella) and he dedicates his time to serve as the lead of PGA content at Awesemo.com. In the time he is not diving into the PGA stats and covering this week's current tournament, you can find him researching and trading stocks, on the golf course, or somewhere hopefully lost in nature with his dogs guiding him along the way.
