The third and final tournament of the 2020 FedEx Cup Playoffs is set to tee-off on Friday when the 2020 Tour Championship gets underway at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta, Ga. Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Bryson DeChambeau, Webb Simpson and Rory McIlroy will headline the star-studded 2020 Tour Championship field. All five players will certainly be popular PGA DFS picks at the Tour Championship 2020, but daily Fantasy players need to take a deep look at the entire field to find value up and down their PGA DFS rosters.
With FanDuel hosting a $300K PGA Eagle and DraftKings running a $1.55M East Lake Ending that awards $500K to the winner, there are some difficult decisions for PGA DFS players to make. Before you enter these PGA DFS tournaments or any others for the 2020 Tour Championship, 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 BMW Championship, McClure was extremely high on Joaquin Niemann as a value pick for PGA DFS lineups. The result: Niemann climbed the leaderboard and earned a third place finish, his fourth top-10 finish this season. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a huge weekend.
In addition, McClure nailed three of his best bets to open the FedEx Cup Playoffs at the Northern Trust, including a +700 top-five bet on Daniel Berger. McClure’s golf model was also all over long shot winner Jon Rahm at the Memorial Tournament. The 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 Tour Championship.
Top Tour Championship PGA DFS picks
One of McClure’s top PGA DFS picks for the Tour Championship 2020: Viktor Hovland at $6,600 on DraftKings and $7,000 on FanDuel.
Hovland’s price tag makes him an extremely affordable piece for PGA DFS rosters this week at the Tour Championship. That’s because Hovland has been playing extremely well this season. In fact, the 22-year-old has recorded three top-10 finishes this season, which includes his first career PGA Tour victory at the Puerto Rico Open.
In addition, Hovland ranks 22nd on the PGA Tour in scoring average (70.059), 10th in strokes gained: approach the green (.604) and 15th in putting average (1.595), 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 East Lake.
McClure’s optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Jon Rahm at $12,700 on DraftKings and $12,500 on FanDuel. The five-time PGA Tour champion certainly has the game to be near the top of the 2020 Tour Championship leaderboard on Monday.
In fact, Rahm enters this week’s event having finished on top of the leaderboard in two of his last five starts on the PGA Tour. The 25-year-old has a total of seven top-10 finishes this season and he’ll enter this week’s event ranked 11th on the PGA Tour in birdie average (4.24) and third in scoring average (69.149), which should allow him the opportunity to return solid value at the Tour Championship.

McClure is also targeting an undervalued player who’s primed to blow up this week, giving you a huge return on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel. Picks like these could be the difference between winning your PGA DFS contests or going home with nothing. You can only see who it is here.
