Before you set your PGA Tour DFS lineups on DraftKings or FanDuel for the 2018 Genesis Open, you need to hear what Mike McClure has to say. McClure is a DFS pro with more than $1 million in career winnings and he’s off to a red-hot start on his PGA Tour picks this season.
Last week at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, McClure locked in Kevin Chappell on his FanDuel and DraftKings rosters. The result: Chappell shot 69 or better in three of his four rounds on his way to a score of 10 under par and an eighth-place finish. Anybody who had him in their lineup was well on their way to a profitable weekend.
Now McClure has set his sights on the 2018 Genesis Open and has revealed his optimal DFS lineups.
One huge name McClure is all over at Pebble Beach: Tommy Fleetwood ($10,800 on FanDuel, $9,500 on DraftKings).
Fleetwood has recorded three consecutive top-10 finishes on the European Tour and is coming off a strong performance at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic, where he finished tied for sixth thanks in large part to an astonishing 66 in the third round. He went under 70 in all four rounds and was one of the most consistent performers in the event.
Fleetwood is one of the more expensive players on FanDuel and DraftKings this week, but you can afford him if you follow McClure’s roster-building strategy.
One value pick McClure has in his lineup that will give you much-needed salary relief: Charley Hoffman, who is just $9,300 on FanDuel and $7,400 on DraftKings.
Hoffman finished fourth in this tournament a year ago, when he shot 68 or better in three of his four rounds at Riviera Country Club. And he has been playing well this season with a pair of top-10 finishes at the Hero World Challenge and QBE Shootout — both unofficial PGA Tour events.
McClure is also targeting multiple value picks you’re not even thinking about that will allow you to build a loaded roster with huge potential.
So what 2018 Genesis…
