PGA Top DFS Plays: Valspar Championship

The high drama on the PGA Tour and with my Top DFS Plays returned last week.

Scottie Scheffler rallied from a 5-shot deficit, shooting an 8-under on Sunday, to become the first golfer to win THE PLAYERS Championship title in back-to-back seasons.

Xander Schauffele couldn’t make a birdie on his final three holes, and Wyndham Clark’s late rally ended with his in-and-out birdie putt on No. 18. And Scheffler escaped with his second win of the season after winning the Arnold Palmer Invitational two weeks ago.

The Tour heads to Innisbrook Resort (Copperhead Course) for the Valspar Championship (par 71, 7,340 yards) this week. This is the final leg of the Florida swing.

The course feature five challenging par 3s and four par 5s.

Taylor Moore is the defending champion.

Onto PGA Tour Top DFS Plays for the Valspar Championship:

10K & Above

Xander Schauffele ($11,200)

Schauffele may be reeling after not holding onto his third-round lead at THE PLAYERS last week.

But he does come into the Valspar playing solid golf as he has five Top 10 finishes this season. His all-around game makes him one of my Top DFS Plays this week.

Sam Burns ($10,900) is the course horse at the Copperhead Course. He has two wins and a 6th in his last three visits at Innisbrook.

Justin Thomas ($10, 400) and Jordan Spieth ($10,200) also showed up in my Top 25 this week.

But all four 10k golfers are expected to be chalky.

9K & Above

Nick Taylor ($9,100)

Taylor is expected to be the least chalky golfer in the 9K range on my spreadsheet.

Taylor was a little bit of sizzle and fizzle last week at THE PLAYERS. He raced up the leaderboard on Friday before shooting a 76 on Saturday to put himself out of contention.

He’s in the Top 20 for this tournament in SG: approach, SG: putting and SG: scrambling.

8K & Above

Maverick McNealy ($8,100)

McNealy is finally on the road to recovery – his career recovery.

After missing most of last season with a shoulder injury, McNealy has bounced back nicely recently.

He has three Top 15 finishes in his last four starts and his worst round in those four tournaments was his 72 in the final round of THE PLAYERS.

His weakness this week may be his approach game, where he ranks 141st on Tour. He finished T36 last year at the Valspar.

7K & Above

Billy Horschel ($7,400)

Horschel’s up-and-down season hit a downer last week after his missed the cut at THE PLAYERS.

But Horschel finished T9 at the Cognizant Classic at the Palm Beaches three weeks ago.

His accuracy off the tee, putting and scoring on par 3s will be key for his chances to play on the weekend.

Punt Plays

Andrew Novak ($6,700) and Hayden Springer ($6,100) are two of three to be ranked in my Top 10 this week, while nine totals golfers 6K or less cracked my spreadsheet’s Top 25 this week (check out them out in our PGA DFS premium channel on Discord).
