PGA DFS & a Tiger Woods-designed course
Tiger Woods’ golf career has come full circle and circles right into this week’s PGA DFS Plays.
PGA Tour continues its Fall Series with the World Wide Technology Championship at El Cardonal at Diamante, a course designed by Woods.
It marks the first time the PGA has played an event at El Cardonal (par 72, 7,452 yards).
Scoring will start and end fast on the weekend as No. 1 and No. 18 holes are reachable par 5s.
The course features wide fairways, well-placed bunkers and enormous undulated greens, averaging 8,300 square feet.

Onto My PGA DFS Picks for the WWT!
10K and Above
Ludvig Aberg ($11,200) and Lucas Glover ($10,100)
Aberg comes into the tournament with the highest salary, and it is warranted.
He checks all the boxes except SG: approach, where is just below tour average. He would rank in the Top 10 in the PGA Tour in the four course fits statistics I used for this event.
Glover will probably be rusty since this is first event since the Tour Championship, but his run he had at the end of the season was remarkable. His only weakness for this event may be his play on the par 5s.
Sahith Theegala ($10,700) and Stephan Jaeger ($10,200) are both fine plays in GPPs.
9K and Above
I will ignore this range to try to jam in at least 2 10K golfers in each of my lineups.
The top plays from this group are Emiliano Grillo ($9,700) Adam Svensson ($9,300), Akshay Bhatia ($9,200) and Luke List ($9,000). Each of them rank in my Top 20 on my spreadsheet.
8K and Above
I will again ignore his group for the most part.
Only three golfers in the 8K range rank in my Top 20: Matt Kuchar ($8,700), Andrew Putnam ($8,100) and Taylor Pendrith ($8,000).
7K and Above
Peter Kuest ($7,300) and Nick Lashley ($7,200)
Kuest (2nd) and Lashley (6th) both easily make my Top 10 this week.
Kuest has the skills to be a consistent finisher on Tour and has failed recently, only making 1 of 3 of in the Fall Series. He is in the Top 20 for 3 of the 4 course fit stats I used.
Lashley made the cut in 3 of 4 Fall events, and it’s always one round that keeps him from a Top 30 finish. Lashley is in the Top 20 in all four course fit stats.
Kevin Yu ($7,100) always ranks in the Top 10 on my spreadsheet, but his putting woes will probably keep him out my lineups.
Other 7K guys in my Top 20 are K.H. Lee ($7,800), Sam Ryder ($7,600), Nick Hardy ($7,400) and Will Gordon ($7,000).
Isiah Salinda ($6,500) pops up well on my spreadsheet based off his 7th-place finish at Shiners Children’s Open, and he struggled on the Korn Ferry Tour making the cut. Other 6k golfers to take a look at are Ben Martin ($6,800), Ryan Palmer ($6,800) and Ryan Gerard ($6,600).
