US Open Preview:

The first major of the season and the second of the year is here! We have the US Open. This one has always been one of my better tournaments, and easily my best major in terms of PGA DFS. That is for two main reasons. Typically it has a low number of lineups 6/6, 5/6, and even 4/6, meaning the strategy to focus on making the cut tends to pay off even more here! The second reason is because of the key stats, Total Driving, Ball Striking, GIRS, and Bogey Avoidance. Aka targeting smart golfers tends to work out.

The US Open is slightly different though, there are a number of the players saying that this is going to be the most difficult course they have ever played, rough looks long, and the greens look short. The cut line could even end up being at like +5. When a course plays more difficult so do the PGA DFS contests.

High Tier:

Xander Schauffele ($10,100) - Xander is the closest feeling to a lock I have had in a while. He always plays well in the biggest stages, with a top 10 at this years PGA, and 3 straight T6 or better finishes at the US Open. He had a 25th finish at the BMW, and had two top 15 finishes at Murfield this year. Xander is a top 4 stat fit. The only weakness in his game is driving accuracy, but he makes up for that being 2nd in Scrambling, and 4th in BA. If you can pay up for Xander I would.

Mid Tier:

Tyrrell Hatton ($8,100): Last week Hubbard was an easy play given his price point, and the fact that he was checking all the boxes. Hubbard missed the cut. That's the beauty of PGA DFS, we had no reason to fade Hubbard last week at his price point, and we have no reason to fade Hatton at this price point either. 21st at the US Open last year, 6th the year before that, 16th at the BMW Championship, his win at the API was a tougher track as well (second-toughest last season). He simply plays well on tougher courses. He is coming in, in some good recent form as well, after cooling off for a little bit. His FH%, and somewhat poor Scrambling would be the only reason he misses the cut. This play feels a lot like Gary Woodland last year to me.

Low Tier:

Harris English ($7,900): English is simple just always underpriced, and under-respected, maybe he needs a statement career-defining moment to finally get the love his stats, and season told us he deserves. I am still going to play Harris English until he starts to play poorly. Might not have a ton of upside given Comp Course History, but it is extremely hard to not play a top 3 stat fit, with 0 holes in his game.

Value Tier:

Brian Harman ($6,400): As stated earlier Harman should be priced by Zach Johnson, and it is very weird that he is not. He is a top 20 stat fit, has made the cut in his last 3 events with an average finish of 16th, made the cut at the PGA Championship, and has a 36th, and a 2nd finish in his last 2 starts at the US Open. I HATE DK FOR THIS PRICING! Like Draftkings is almost trying to force us into playing him at this price point. It opens up so much with what you can do with your lineup by playing a projected made cut like Harman.
