PGA Top DFS Plays: John Deere Classic

My Top DFS Plays has some excitement last week even without the top PGA Tour golfers.

I was correct last week about avoiding the 10K range as Min Woo Lee was the only one with a chance to win. Cameron Young struggled on Sunday to bow out of contention.

However, my spreadsheet didn’t sniff the Cam Davis win. Akshay Bhatia was my spreadsheet’s top play but he bogeyed the final hole for a T2.

This week the Tour heads to TPC Deere Run (par 71, 7,289 yards) for the John Deere Classic.

Unlike Detroit Golf Club last week, the deep rough is in play this week.

Accurate drivers of the ball, a good approach game and a solid putter are needed to bring home the trophy.

Sepp Straka is the defending champion.

Onto my Top DFS Plays for the John Deere Classic:

10K & Above

Aaron Rai ($10,300)

Rai continues to play stellar golf late in the season.

His weakness is still putting but he’s improved greatly in recent weeks which put him in contention for most of last weekend.

His Top 10 accuracy off the tee will be key for him to dial in his Top 10 approach game.

Jordan Spieth ($11,000), Sepp Straka ($10,500) and Sungjae Im ($10,300) all earned spots in my Top 25.

9K & Above

Maverick McNealy ($9,800)

This range is loaded with solid options.

McNealy earns the nod for me because he has been a little more consistent recently, despite his disappointing T44 last week.

Six of the seven 9K golfers earned spots in my Top 20, but each have their issues for the TPC Deere Run course.

Sam Stevens ($9,000) is the only 9K golfer not in my Top 25 but he’s been trending in the right direction.

8K & Above

Mark Hubbard ($8,400)

Hubbard may not be flashy or have any standout stats, but all he does is make cuts.

His accuracy off the tee and strong scoring on par 4s and par 5s makes him one of my Top DFS Plays.

Luke Clanton ($8,600) showed some flashes of brilliance at the Rocket Mortgage Classic last week, but his limited stat tree has me leery.

Lucas Glover ($8,700) is the only other 8K in my Top 25

7K & Above

Jacob Bridgeman ($7,300)

I loved this range for the Rocket Mortgage, but not so much this week!

Bridgeman has a good approach game and a solid putter, but his accuracy off the tee could be a hindrance. However, his all-around strong course fit stats makes him a solid play this week.

Neal Shipley ($7,500) is my sleeper in this range. This is only his third professional start, but he has shown strong form earlier this year in majors as an amateur.

Punt Plays

Patton Kizzire ($6,900), Troy Merritt ($6,800) and Carson Young ($6,700) are the only 6K golfers earn a spot in my Top 25 on my spreadsheet.
