PGA Top DFS Plays: Zurich Classic of New Orleans

My Top DFS Plays were done in again by the high priced Scottie Scheffler.

Scheffler won the RBC Heritage in impressive fashion with a 3-stroke victory over Sahith Theegala (and it wasn’t even this close.) It was Scheffler’s third win in four events.

Now we head to Zurich Classic of New Orleans for the two-man event.

TPC Louisiana (par 72, 7,435 yards) plays host to event with its best ball and alternate shot format.

The best ball format is played during the first and third rounds where the pair takes the best score between the two. Alternate shot format is exactly what it means – the golfers alternate back and forth on shots. It is played during the second and final rounds.

Nick Hardy and Davis Riley are the defending champions.

Onto my Top DFS Plays for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans:

10K & Above

Patrick Cantlay/Xander Schauffele ($11,200)

This pair won the event two years ago and are a staple pairing in other team competition for the United States.

They combined for the best birdies or better scoring in this tournament on my spreadsheet, and they solid all-around games make them a good play for my Top DFS Plays.

All four teams in the 10K range this week are solid plays as a studs and duds build approach can be used this week.

9K & Above

Tom Hoge/Maverick McNealy ($9,400)

Hoge found some form during last week’s RBC Heritage. We can ignore the 9 he shot on the final hole after the rain delay.

McNealy has recovered nicely since a shoulder injury slowed his play last season.

The two combine well as Hoge is one of the Tour’s top irons players and McNealy’s strength is putting.

8K & Above

Keith Mitchell/Joel Dahmen ($8,800)

Mitchell and Dahmen are masterful at SG: tee to green, SG: off the tee and SG: approach, but it’s their putting that will make a difference.

If one of them gets hot with the putter, it could be a long weekend of others chasing them.

A sleeper in this price ranger is the pairing of Doug Ghim and Chan Kim ($8,300).

Kim comes off a Top 10 finish last week at the Corales Puntacana Championship, while Ghim has shown flashes earlier this season.

7K & Above

Austin Eckroat/Chris Gotterup ($7,900)

The Eckroat and Gotterup pairing leads a group of 6 teams 7K & Above in my Top 20 this week.

Eckroat’s strengths off the tee, tee to green and approach play pair well with Gotterup’s distance off the tee and putting.

The sleeper from this range is Ben Silverman and Kevin Dougherty ($7,200).

Punt Plays

The 6K range is really dicey in my opinion this week. I plan to build my studs and duds lineup mainly from the 7K range. Hayden Springer and Tom Whitney ($6,700) is the only pair that I have faith in this group.
