In the end, Padraig Harrington came out on top, besting Daniel Berger in a playoff.
There are only 74 players in the field this week and there will not be a cut. The field includes the top 50 ranked players in the world, as well as the top money-winners from other tours around the world. Prior to the event last year, the TPC Blue Monster course was renovated to add both length and water. The Par 72 course now measures 7, yards and features water hazards that are directly in play on 10 of the 18 holes.
That score was a far cry from the under range that we had seen previously at this event. Strokes gained tee to green and putting are always great indicators of success.
Both are important stats to target this week. Total driving is another key statistic to look at. While driving distance really helps on this course, players need to stay away from the hazards. A combination of length and accuracy is preferred off the tee. Tee to Green 2 Strokes Gained: Putting 3 Total Driving 4 All-Around. The extra rest on the weekend may be just what Johnson needed.
Johnson should be in for another solid start this week at Trump National Doral. He has posted three top finishes here in the last four years and his stats match the course perfectly. Rose has had mixed results at this event in the past.
In the last four years, he has had two top-ten finishes including a win here in along with finishes of Tth and Tnd. By his own admission, Sergio has not played all that well recently, even though he has posted respectable finishes of T-4th and Tst at the Northern Trust Open and the Honda Classic.
Just imagine what will happen when he starts to get his confidence back. It could come as early as this week, as this is his third tournament in the last three weeks.
Sergio is one of the best tee to green players in the world and his past success at this event bodes well for a top-ten finish this week. Koepka almost gave gamers a heart attack last week with his opening 8-over on Thursday. He bounced back nicely with a 6-under on Friday to make the cut. He is ranked in the top in all of the important stats this week. Casey played his way into the field this week. His top-three finishes at the Northern Trust Open and the Honda Classic propelled his ranking to the top 50 in the world.
Casey is a very good golfer and was once ranked as high as third in the world. This is a case of targeting a golfer in great form and a great price point. G-Mac let us down last week by missing the cut by one shot. Once again, we should give him a pass, as it was a week of bad weather where a ton of big names missed the cut.
McDowell should bounce back nicely this week at a venue where he has experienced some great success. He has posted four top finishes in his last five tries here. This will be Stenson's first appearance on U. S soil this year, which I believe will lead to him being overlooked, especially considering his price on DraftKings puts him right between crowd favorites Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler.
He placed 16th here at Doral two years ago and fourth last year. If we can get a top-five finish from a guy who is owned by 10 percent or less of the field, that will give us a big advantage on the field. Zach Turcotte -- J. Holmes should have been able to cruise to a win on Sunday afternoon at Doral. After firing a 62 in the first round to go to -9 was the winning score , Holmes entered the final day with a five-shot lead, only to shoot a 75 and lose by a stroke to Dustin Johnson.
This course is a bomber's paradise and players will need to be big off the tee if they want to have a chance to post the type of round that Holmes opened with last year.
His putting game is still only average, but he has elevated his tee-to-green game to a top ranking. He is a player that can score on the par 5 holes and makes plenty of birdies along the way. As if that was not enough, Holmes has finished in the top in five of six starts this season and is looking more consistent than ever before.
That should basically check every box imaginable to go full throttle on our favorite birdie machine. While Koepka hasn't been quite as consistent in finishing near the top as he was last year, he appears to be rounding into form, and you won't see him at this great of a price very often.
He's a highly-proficient tee-to-green player who can handle the demanding forced carries as well as anybody. He can putt better than most bombers and has plenty of upside to contend at this tournament. We also know that he can handle himself at Doral after he posted a T here last year.
I have confidence in Koepka in all formats. As much as I try to avoid picking last year's champion in Daily Fantasy Golf, there are too many signs pointing to DJ again this week. Recent form is one, with a top finish in three of four tournaments played this year and coming off a fourth-place finish at the Northern Trust.
Course history is another, with three top-five finishes in the past five years in this tournament. Driving distance is is the third, and possibly the most important stat in relation to the course.
Johnson led the PGA Tour in driving distance last year The West Palm Beach native fits the mold of the golfers I'm targeting this week. Last year he ranked inside the top 10 on Tour in driving distance, birdie or better percentage, and proximity from key ranges for this course at yards and greater than yards.
He approaches this course with a U. Open-type mentality and even made a trip down in when he wasn't playing this event to see how much the redesign changed the course from when he was a kid.
