|Key Stats for THE CJ CUP @ SHADOW CREEK
at Shadow Creek Golf Course
|Strokes Gained: Method|
|Strokes Gained: Off the Tee|
|Strokes Gained: Placing|
|Birdie or Higher Fee|
Shadow Creek Golf Course hosted The Match between Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods two years in the past, however we haven’t any precise PGA Tour knowledge to go off of when breaking down the course.
What we all know is that it is a lengthy course (7,527 yards). There are 5 par 4s which might be a minimum of 460 yards (the median for a par 4 is round 437 on Tour). Of the 4 par 3s, 3 are 200-plus yards, and one is 257. There’s a 622-yard par 5, so distance ought to result in a bonus.
Strokes gained: method won’t ever not be on the checklist, so I’m searching for ball-strikers who can convert on the greens. That is normally the case.
For a extra detailed breakdown on the course, take a look at our course primer from Mike Rodden.
Stats cited under come from FantasyNational and embrace the previous 50 rounds on the PGA Tour, and placing floor splits embrace the previous 100 rounds when attainable, except famous. Ranks are among the many area.
Dustin Johnson (FanDuel Wage: $12,000 | FanDuel Sportsbook Win Odds: +1000) – Johnson’s present type is just about unmatched proper now: win, missed lower, twelfth, 2nd, win, 2nd, win, sixth. By way of FantasyNational, over the previous 24 rounds, no golfer has averaged extra strokes per spherical tee to inexperienced than Johnson (2.4; second-best is Matthew Wolff at 1.7). Johnson checks all of the bins for key stats: seventh in strokes gained: off the tee, 4th in method, 1st in birdie or higher fee, 4th in distance, and twenty ninth in strokes gained: placing. Additional, he is aware of Shadow Creek, saying that he has performed “some good golf previously” right here.
Jon Rahm ($11,900 | +1000) – The highest-five golfers (Johnson, Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, and Xander Schauffele) are all very a lot in play this week, so it is easy to seek out pivots from Johnson at excessive reputation. However with their salaries being the place they’re, they’re actually not unplayable relative to golfers within the higher $10,000 vary, so it is foolish to miss a second stud right here. Rahm does the whole lot you want right here with the gap and birdie means, and he is an excellent bentgrass putter (thirteenth over the previous 100 rounds).
Others to Contemplate:
Collin Morikawa ($10,800 | +2200) – Most important blemish is outright driving distance in comparison with the sector however third in method and eleventh in birdie or higher fee.
Daniel Berger ($10,400 | +2900) – A greater Bermuda putter, Berger remains to be third in birdie or higher fee gained and seventh tee to inexperienced over the previous 50.
Viktor Hovland ($10,100 | +3100) – Hovland ought to arrange properly for Shadow Creek. He’s ninth within the area in strokes gained: tee to inexperienced (fifteenth off the tee and fifth in method) and can also be a viable thirty third in distance gained. He has only one optimistic placing floor to his identify: bentgrass, the place he ranks twenty second over a 45-round pattern.
Harris English ($9,600 | +4100) – English is simply 51st on this area in distance, which is a bit scary, however there are actually no golfers exterior the highest few who’re lengthy and who putt properly, so it is form of an either-or state of affairs. English is the second-best bentgrass putter within the area and sits sixteenth in strokes gained: tee to inexperienced. I am actually underwhelmed by the $9,000 to $10,000 vary as a complete.
Others to Contemplate:
Scottie Scheffler ($9,800 | +4100) – Was thirty seventh and lower the previous two weeks with misplaced strokes from method, however long-term type means that’ll right quickly, so a bounce-back spot.
Paul Casey ($9,200 | +5000) – Gained strokes from ball hanging in 76% of the previous 50 rounds and is finest placing on bentgrass.
Joaquin Niemann ($8,800 | +6500) – Niemann is a top-tier ball-striker (nineteenth in strokes gained: off the tee and fifteenth in method) and can also be lengthy off the tee (fifth in distance gained). Niemann additionally returns to his finest (learn: solely good) placing floor: bentgrass. Niemann ranks twenty sixth over the previous 100 rounds placing on bentgrass.
Si Woo Kim ($8,300 | +10000) – Kim’s been trending up for a while now, and for his placing woes, he is simply barely adverse on bentgrass in his profession. Over the previous 100 rounds, he ranks nineteenth on this area on the floor. Kim is coming off a top-eight end and ranks nineteenth within the area in strokes gained: tee to inexperienced over the previous 50 rounds.
Others to Contemplate:
Jason Kokrak ($8,500 | +10000) – Is sixth in strokes gained: off the tee by means of rating eleventh in distance.
Talor Gooch ($7,200 | +27000) – twenty third in placing, twenty third in distance, and twenty second in birdie fee; not the worst profile for a punt play.
