Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson have been regulars in PGA DFS lineups for years, but daily Fantasy golf players will have to decide if they can be trusted when they set their PGA DFS picks for the 2020 Northern Trust, which tees off Thursday. McIlroy, who’s among the highest priced players on DraftKings and FanDuel this week, has been inconsistent since the PGA Tour resumed play. In fact, he has finished 32nd or worse in five of his last six starts. Johnson, who is $10,400 on DraftKings and $11,600 on FanDuel, is coming off an impressive runner-up finish at the PGA Championship.
Can those household names be relied on as 2020 Northern Trust DFS picks this week? Or is it time to fade them in favor of players with a significantly lower price tag? Before you enter these PGA DFS tournaments or any others for the 2020 Northern Trust, you’ll want to see the top PGA DFS picks, advice and player pool from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.
McClure is a DFS pro with nearly $2 million in career winnings, and he’s been red-hot on his PGA Tour picks this season. McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every tournament 10,000 times, taking factors like statistical trends, past results and current form into account. This allows him to find the best PGA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any PGA DFS player.
Last week at the Wyndham Championship, McClure was all over Webb Simpson as one of his top PGA DFS picks. The result: Simpson fired four consecutive rounds in the 60s to finish in third place, his seventh top-10 finish this season. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge weekend.
In addition, McClure’s proven golf model was all over long shot winner Jon Rahm at the Memorial Tournament. McClure’s golf model identified him as a top contender from the start despite his long odds and he recommended an outright bet on him to win at 22-1. It also had him as the projected winner heading into the weekend.
McClure’s model was also all over long shot winner Collin Morikawa at the Workday Charity Open. It identified him as a top contender from the start despite his long odds and McClure recommended an outright bet on him to win at 33-1. The model also called Bryson DeChambeau taking the Rocket Mortgage Classic and has nailed two of the last four majors entering the weekend.
Now, McClure has set his sights on this week’s event and revealed his optimal PGA DFS advice, strategy and player pool. Head to SportsLine now to see his top daily Fantasy golf picks for the 2020 Northern Trust.
Top Northern Trust PGA DFS picks
One of McClure’s top PGA DFS picks for the Northern Trust 2020: Viktor Hovland at $8,200 on DraftKings and $9,600 on FanDuel. Hovland’s price tag makes him an extremely affordable piece for PGA DFS rosters this week at the Northern Trust 2020. That’s because Hovland has been playing extremely well this season. In fact, the 22-year-old has finished in the top 12 in three of his last six starts and recorded his first career PGA Tour victory at the Puerto Rico Open in February.
In addition, Hovland ranks in the top 20 in a number of important statistical categories, including strokes gained tee-to-green (.974), strokes gained off the tee (.514), strokes gained approaching the green (.687) and putting average (1.724), which means he can return tournament-winning value at an extremely affordable price. He’s a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in your PGA DFS lineups and look for a big return this week at The Northern Trust 2020.
McClure’s optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Daniel Berger at $8,900 on DraftKings and $10,800 on FanDuel. The three-time PGA Tour champion certainly has the game to be near the top of the 2020 Northern Trust leaderboard on Sunday. In fact, the 27-year-old has finished in the top five in five of his last seven starts.
Berger has a total of six top-10 finishes this season and will enter this week’s event ranked fifth on the PGA Tour in birdie average (4.46) and scoring average (69.205), which should allow him the opportunity to return plenty of value at TPC Boston.
