PGA DFS players entering tournaments, cash games, or 50-50s on FanDuel or DraftKings for the 2021 Sony Open have plenty of tough choices to make. Investing in Webb Simpson, Collin Morikawa or Joaquin Niemann is a great way to guarantee production, but all three come with a hefty price tag on both sites. Simpson has won seven events on the PGA Tour, while Morikawa and Niemann both finished in the top-10 last week at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. 

They’ll eat up a large portion of your PGA DFS salary cap right off the bat, so making the right call on the value of PGA DFS picks such as them will be critical when evaluating the 2021 Sony Open PGA DFS slate. Before you enter any PGA DFS tournaments or cash games for the Sony Open 2021, 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. 

In addition, McClure’s model is up over $13,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament. 

In the final standard PGA event of 2020, McClure nailed Viktor Hovland’s win at +2500 in his best bets. That was one of many huge calls he made last year. After nailing Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, McClure finished up over $6,200 yet again on his best bets. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure’s best bets included Garcia winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a massive +5500 return. 

He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff. McClure hit a top-five bet (+1200) on Doc Redman at the Wyndham Championship, finishing up over $700 on his best bets. Those are just some of his recent big returns. In all, the advanced computer model has also nailed a whopping six 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 2021 Sony Open.

Top 2021 Sony Open PGA DFS picks

One of McClure’s top PGA DFS picks for the Sony Open 2021: Sergio Garcia at $8,300 on DraftKings and $10,000 on FanDuel.

Garcia ranks inside the top 15 in a number of important statistical categories, which will help return solid value for your PGA DFS lineups at the 2021 Sony Open. He ranks 14th in driving distance (310.2), fourth in strokes gained: off-the-tee (.998) and 13th in eagles holes per (66.0). Garcia is a complete steal at this price point, and McClure recommends you lock him in your PGA DFS lineups and look for a big return this week at Waialae Country Club.

McClure’s optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Brendon Todd at $8,200 on DraftKings and $9,800 on FanDuel.

Todd, who’s finished inside the top-15 in each of his last two starts on the PGA Tour, is an almost sure-fire bet to be near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday. The 35-year-old enters this week’s event ranked second in driving accuracy percentage (74.23). Todd’s ability to consistently find the fairway coupled with his strong iron play will result in more birdie opportunities and more chances to rack up points on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings. Lock him in your PGA DFS lineup and look for a big return this week at the Sony Open.
