PGA Tour DFS Top Plays: Sony Open

That was an uneventful start to the 2024 season for my PGA Tour DFS core picks

I only had one lineup to hit the green and it was a pivot away from Tom Kim to Jordan Spieth of a Top 3 finish.

The elevated events have been tough to figure.

But this week it’s a full-field event with a cut at the Sony Open (par 70, 7,044 yards) at Wai’alae Country Club in Honolulu.

Onto PGA Tour DFS core picks for Sony Open:

10K and Above

Ludvig Aberg ($10,500) and Tyrrell Hatton ($10,300)

I believe Aberg was the knocking the rust off during The Sentry.

Plus the Kapalua wide-open course took away Aberg’s top advantage, his driver, where he’s long and accurate. But he had a nice bounce back on Sunday, shooting a 10-under 63.

According to our projections portal, he’s expected to be in the Top 10 of rostered golfers this week making him a better play in cash tournaments.

Hatton is more of GPP play as he will be on less rosters than Aberg by about 7 percent, according to our portal. Hatton’s elite approach play and putting makes well worth his salary.

9K and Above

Eric Cole ($9,700)

Surprisingly, Cole may be getting overlooked this week.

Yes, his off the tee play may hinder his elite approach play if he’s hitting from the unpredictable Wai’alae rough, but Cole consistently finds a way to put up a good score. He is a Top 20 in SG: putting in this field.

He started slow last week at The Sentry but finished with an 8-under 65 on Sunday.

8K and Above

Cam Davis ($8,500)

I know you may be thinking I’m little crazy after watching Davis play last week at The Sentry, but he’s his elite approach play should carry him past his shortcomings on the green and his accuracy off the tee.

Plus, he was an elite scorer on Wai’alae’s two par-5 holes last season. He was 10 under on the No. 9 and No. 18 holes in 2023, including three eagles.

He finished 9 under for the tournament, and if he can figure out the rest of the course, he could make a run for the title.

7K & Above

Lucas Glover ($7,700)

Glover checks all the right boxes this week on my spreadsheet as his elite approach game leads the way.

He struggled last week at The Sentry, but he ranks in the Top 20 in six of the categories I used this week on my spreadsheet.

Glover also ranks in the Top 20 on value on our projections portal.

Punt Plays

Robert Macintyre ($6,900), Ryan Moore ($6,700), Dylan Wu ($6,600) and Nick Lashley ($6,500) are all in my Top 30 week. Our projections portal has veteran Webb Simpson ($6,800) has a Top 10 value.
