PGA Top DFS Plays: U.S. Open at Pinehurst No. 2

Let the carnage begin for my Top DFS Plays!

After finally after having a profitable week with the Memorial, the pros head to Pinehurst No. 2 (par 70, 7,543 yards) for the U.S. Open.

Scottie Scheffler, who picked up his fifth win of the season last week, is the early favorite on a course set up for carnage.

With its crowned greens and sandy rough areas accompanied by wiregrass, Pinehurst will be true test of golf and sanity for the 156-player field. Wyndham Clark is the defending champion.

The unique cutline this week is the Top 60 golfers and ties after Friday’s second round. Any solid 6-for-6 lineup this week will be in the running for some big money.

Onto my Top DFS Plays for the U.S. Open:

10K & Above

Scottie Scheffler ($13,000)

Scheffler, Rory McIlroy ($12,100) and Xander Schauffele ($10,500) are all expected to be rostered in the upper 30-percent range late Tuesday night.

But I believe Scheffler’s all-around game is the best play at Pinehurst and for my Top DFS Plays.

And with a 5K range this week, you may be able to squeeze two of them in your lineups, but good luck with only the lower percentage making the cut.

Bryson DeChambeau ($10,100) and Brooks Koepka ($10,000) are good pivots based on rostered numbers, but neither made my Top 25.

9K & Above

Collin Morikawa ($9,400)

Morikawa will be a very chalky play in this range, but his numbers are hard to ignore in big events this season.

He’s finished no worse than 16th in the last five big tournaments (three elevated and two majors). And he’s closing in on Scheffler in head-to-head matchups in the final round.

The best pivot may be Ludvig Aberg ($9,600). However, his weakness is SG: Around the green which is needed at Pinehurst. He has improved to 89th on Tour after struggling most of the season in that stat.

8K & Above

Hideki Matsuyama ($8,000)

Matsuyama leads the PGA Tour at SG: Around the green, which helped him land in my Top 10 this week.

But he can’t overlooked because he has proven once this season that he can will a big event, winning the Genesis Invitational early this years.

I’m saving my other top 8K play for my GPP core, available with our monthly membership.

7K & Above

Tyrrell Hatton ($7,800)

What makes Hatton a good GPP play is his unpredictability.

He has the all-around game to contend, but Pinehurst may bring out the worst in him after a bad hole.

But he has be able to hang around the top of the leaderboard in tournaments where the winning score is less than 10-under.

Jason Day ($7,400) is only other 7K golfer to finish in my Top 20.

Punt Plays

This is the range that can make or break your tournament. There are so many golfers playing well in the 6K and below range to able to squeeze in the higher prices stars. Alex Noren ($6,900) tops the list of this group, sitting 6th on my spreadsheet. Seven golfers 6K and below earned spots in Top 20. Other notables are Si Woo Kim ($6,800) and Dean Burmester ($6,800).
