PGA Top DFS Plays: Genesis Scottish Open

I was all over the place for Top DFS Plays last week for the John Deere Classic.

***UPDATED 7-10-24, 7:55 A.M.***

I used Davis Thompson in five of my 10 lineups, but my struggles to pair him with the right group of golfers evaded me again.

But this week, we have a dual tour event as the PGA Tour and the DP World Tour bring some of their top players to The Renaissance Club (par 70, 7,237 yards) for the Genesis Scottish Open.

Rory McIlroy is the defending champion and will be playing his first tournament since his meltdown at the U.S. Open.

The tournament will be played at North Berwick, Scotland, where the weather can be unpredictable at times.

But favorable playing conditions are expected for this week’s event.

LINEUP NOTE: The tournament begins 2 a.m. Thursday morning.

Onto my Top DFS Plays for the Genesis Scottish Open:

10K & Above

Colin Morikawa ($10,300)

All four golfers in the 10K range will be sprinkled into my 10 lineups. And it appears Ludvig Aberg ($10,500) is going to have lowest rostered numbers.

But my preferred play is Morikawa.

He is Top 20 in field in six of 11 statistical categories this week and just missed making the Top 20 in two other spots.

Since finishing a disappointing T75 at the Valero Texas Open, Morikawa has finished 16th or better in 8 straight events.

9K & Above

Tom Kim ($9,500)

Kim did not make my spreadsheet’s Top 25 this week because of his early season woes limit is overall stats.

But his recent play appears to have him back on track.

He missed the cut in his last start at the Rocket Mortgage Classic, but it was his 9th straight event.

Now rested and returning to a course where he has had Top 10 finishes the last two years, Kim should shine.

Hideki Matsuyama ($9,400) is the only 9K golfer in my Top 25.

8K & Above

Justin Thomas ($8,800)

Thomas is ranked 4th this week on my spreadsheet and he is led by his distance off the tee and his stellar around the green play.

His putter his been his weakness all year. But he is coming off a T5 at the Travelers Championship where he recorded four rounds 68 or better.

Aaron Rai ($8,300) is also in my Top 25 and may be the hottest golfer in the 8K range.

7K & Above

Keith Mitchell ($7,300)

Mitchell has been up and down all season.

He shot 69 or better in all four rounds last week at John Deere Classic after missing the cut at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

His length off the tee and his approach game are his strengths. However, just like Thomas, Mitchell’s putter is his weakness.

But with the unique hole set up at The Renaissance Club (5 par 3s and 3 par 5s), Mitchell is Top 11 on the PGA Tour in par-3 scoring and par-5 scoring. Plus, Mitchell’s low 7K salary makes him a perfect play for my Top DFS Plays.

Punt Plays

There is a 5K range this week but I’m avoiding that range. But the 6K range is littered with several good standouts from the DP World Tour. Bernd Wiesberger ($6,600), Sabastian Soderberg ($6,400) and Keita Nakajima ($6,300) are part of a group of seven DP World Tour players in the 6K range in my Top 25. However, Soderberg withdrew because of a back injury.
