PGA Top DFS Plays: Houston Open

I’ve played DFS long enough to know we have our good weeks and our bad weeks when it come to our Top DFS Plays.

Last week was a bad week!

After having three straight profitable weeks, I came crashing down to earth.

Peter Malnati played brilliantly in the fourth round of the Valspar Championship on Sunday to hold off Cameron Young. Young again finished runner-up for the seventh time in his short career.

This week the PGA Tour heads to the Texas Children’s Houston Open at the Memorial Park Golf Course (par 70, 7,435 yards).

The event was last played during the Fall of 2022, and Tony Finau is the defending champion.

Onto my Top DFS Plays for the Texas Children’s Houston Open:

10K & Above

Wyndham Clark ($10,900)

Clark has the slight edge on my spreadsheet over the world’s No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler ($13,000), thanks in part to SG: putting and distance off the tee.

Clark is 12th in putting and 17th in distance, while Scheffler’s putting has improved to 94th this season. Scheffler’s lack of distance this season may hurt him on a course with non-penal rough.

Sahith Theegala ($10,300) makes a strong trio at the top of the 10K board.

9K & Above

Jason Day ($9,500)

Day has been unspectacular in his last two starts (35th at THE PLAYERS Championship and 36th at the Arnold Palmer Invitational). But his two finishes before those two events were Top-10 finishes.

Day doesn’t have many standout stats for this week’s event but he’s more consistent across the board. He is Top 20 for this event in SG: around the green, birdies or better and par-4 scoring.

Despite his debacle in the final round of the Valspar Invitational, don’t be afraid to go back to Keith Mitchell ($9,200).

8K and Above

Stephan Jaeger ($8,900)

We can overlook Jaeger’s poor performance at THE PLAYERS as he still had 9 birdies in just two rounds.

Plus, he struggled a bit during the Florida swing, but he comes into the Houston Open in the Top 20 for this tournament in 5 statistical categories. He is Top 20 in SG: tee to green, SG: off the tee, driving distance, birdies or better and par-4 scoring.

Doug Ghim ($8,200) continues to pop in statistical metrics. He had five straight Top 16 or better finishes until last week’s T67 at the Valspar.

7K and Above

Davis Thompson ($7,300)

I’m not a big fan of this range this week, but Thompson is the highest rated golfer in my Top 25.

He is Top 20 for this tournament with SG: approach, green in regulation, SG: 200-225 approach shots and birdies or better.

Punt Plays

Andrew Novak ($6,900) is the only golfer in the 6K and below range to crack my Top 10. Chandler Phillips ($6,700) and Hayden Springer ($5,900) are two of the highlights in the Punt Plays for my Top DFS Plays.
