PGA Top DFS Plays: PGA Championship

Finally another full-field event and it’s a big one for my Top DFS Plays.

The PGA Championship is this week’s event as the pros head to Valhalla Golf Club (par 71, 7,609 yards).

This is first time since 2014 that Valhalla has played host to the PGA Championship. It also marks the last time Rory McIlroy won a major.

Not only is the course long, it has one of smallest greens the PGA Tour will play on this season. Valhalla’s greens average 5,000 square feet, making greens in regulation a premium.

Brooks Koepka is the defending champion. He won at Oak Hill Country Club with a 9-under.

This year’s winning score is expected to hover in the 8- to 10-under range as rains early this week will make the course play longer on its wet zoysiagrass fairways. The bentgrass greens will be run an expected 13 on the stimpmeter once they dry out.

Onto my Top DFS Plays for the PGA Championship:

10K & Above

Xander Schauffele ($10,900)

This group of golfers is littered with pre-tournament favorites but picking the right one to dominate your DFS tournaments will be the key.

Schauffele is the top golfer on my spreadsheet this week, but he continues to struggle to win. He has not won since the Genesis Scottish Open in 2022.

Scottie Scheffler ($13,200) has won four of his last five tournaments and is finally off of baby watch. Scheffler and his wife welcomed a boy on May 8.

McIlroy ($12,000) is playing his best golf at the right time. He’s coming off of a runaway victory at the elevated Wells Fargo Championship and teamed with Shane Lowry to win the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in his last two tournaments.

The LIV golfers, Jon Rahm ($11,400) and Brooks Koepka ($10,800), are being overlooked and are expected to have sub-10 percent roster numbers. Both have major champion pedigrees.

9K & Above

Wyndham Clark ($9,500)

Clark failed miserably last week in his defense of his first PGA Tour win at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Thanks to the bad showing, his roster numbers are hovering right around 10 percent.

His strong SG: tee to green and distance off the tee makes him a great play for my Top DFS Plays. He is also Top 20 in this field in greens in regulations and par-5 scoring.

8K & Above

Tony Finau ($8,300)

Yes, I know Finau has struggled this season, but most of his struggles have been with the putter.

But his solid all-around game makes him a perfect fit for Valhalla.

He is Top 20 in the field in SG: tee to green, SG: approach, distance off the tee, total driving, greens in regulation and par-5 scoring.

7K & Above

Byeong Hun An ($7,800)

Benny is another golfer who is seems to playing his best golf at this moment.

He has two straight Top-5 finishes, thanks to a hot putter, where is he has become an above average putter on tour (90th overall).

But his all-around game is led by his distant off the tee. If he continues to putt well along with his distance, he could be a factor come Sunday.

Punt Plays

Keith Mitchell ($6,600) is the biggest standout in this range on my spreadsheet. He squeezed in at 9th on my spreadsheet and 9th best value on our PGA Projections Portal (which is part of our monthly membership). Erik Van Rooyen ($5,700) is only other 6K or less priced golfer to earn a spot in my Top 25 on my spreadsheet.
