PGA Tour Top DFS Plays: The Genesis Invitational

I love this time of year for my Top DFS Plays!

The NFL season is finally complete and I can put my complete concentration onto DFS golf.

Plus, some of the best tournaments of the year are happening.

We had the fun Waste Management Phoenix Open, which did not disappoint with its playoff finish.

Now we head to The Riviera Country Club (par 71, 7,322 yards) for The Genesis Invitational.

Plus, Tiger Woods is back in this elevated event.

But unlike the elevated AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am tournament, this event will have a cut of the Top 50 and ties and anyone who is within 10 strokes of the leader (more than likely the whole field).

Onto PGA Tour Top DFS Plays for the Genesis Invitational:

10K and Above

Xander Schauffele ($10,100)

There are three great options in the $10K range this week, but I’m going with the third option in pricing with Schauffele.

His distance off the tee, approach game and around the green play gives him a leg up on most of the field, but his putting has been worse than Scottie Scheffler ($11,500) this season.

Rory McIlroy ($11,200) tops my spreadsheet but since he has only played one event on Tour this season, I had to use his stats from last season.

Scheffler and McIlroy are fine GPP plays. I’m fading Victor Hovland ($10,000) this week.

9K and Above

Justin Thomas ($9,100)

Thomas seems to have regained his past excellence this season after struggling the second half of last season.

He has 6 Top 12 finishes since the beginning of the Fall Series, and an off day last Saturday keep him from a Top 10 finish at the WM Phoenix Open.

Thomas’ weak spot is the same as Schauffele – putting. Thomas is currently ranked 129th in SG: putting this season. However, his overall play makes him a solid play in cash and GPP tournaments this week.

8K and Above

Adam Scott ($8,200)

If you use some course history this week, Scott will pop up nicely.

He won the 36-hole shortened event in 2005 and won the full tournament version in 2020.

Plus, his game may be rounding into shape after a slow starts at Pebble Beach and Phoenix. He started both events at even-par.

His elite approach play is perfectly suited for The Riviera course and perfectly suited for my Top DFS Plays.

7K and Above

J.T. Poston ($7,800)

I know Poston missed the cut in Phoenix, but his overall game is hard to ignore at The Riviera Country Club.

His elite approach game pairs well with his strong play around the greens and from the sand. Even though he may lack the distance off the tee, the rest of his game gives him a chance to contend this weekend.

Last week was Poston’s first miss cut since the beginning of the Fall Series. He had Top 20 finishes in 5 of 6 events before Phoenix.

Punt Plays

Kurt Kitayama ($6,900) again shows up well in my spreadsheet with his elite approach play. He had a Top 10 finish last week. Other $6K golfers who made the Top 25 on my spreadsheet are Patrick Rodgers ($6,800), Adam Schenk ($6,700), Lucas Glover ($6,500), Charley Hoffman ($6,200) and Grayson Murray ($6,100).
