For those of you new to the plethora of content DFSKarma.com puts out on a daily/weekly basis, this is my weekly PGA article that focuses on the cheapos no one else dare write about. It had massive success last year with my getting sub $7K (DK) golfers finishing top 10 at less than 1% ownership on an almost weekly basis. Well, I’m bringing it back this year with the same concept. My cap this year is $7300 in DraftKings pricing (but you can still play them on FanDuel, FantasyDraft, or Yahoo). I focus on recent form and course history heavily to spit out my favorite 5 golfers from within that range.
GREAT NEWS! We have officially partnered with the premier PGA DFS data services of Fantasy National

That being said, my PGA Punt Plays article looks a little different (for the better) moving forward. You will see below that I have highlighted 5 players within Fantasy National within my price range of $7300 and below.
2019 RBC Heritage
This event is played on the Harbour Town Golf Links course. It plays as a Par 71 at 7,101 yards and features Bermuda greens.
Luke Donald peaked for this event last year. He rewarded all of us by missing the cut like a douche. This year he is #1 overall in my model. SG: OTT isn’t AS worrisome when you take into account this much shorter course.
Kevin Na is on my black list. I will never play Kevin Na in DFS again. That being said, he is 14th overall in total strokes gained. He also blows in SG: OTT like Luke does, but not worried too much about it for the same exact reason.
Kodaira is 16th overall in total strokes gained. The defending champion is near minimum salary and his recent form is okay enough to plug him in GPPs.
Bill Haas makes the cut each time I write him up. His worst stat is also SG: OTT. However, everything else is just a tad more consistent that Kevin Na.
Kevin Streelman has made his way into my weekly article a million times already this season which has paid off a lot more than not. This week he comes in at 20th overall in total strokes gained and ironic enough, is FIRST overall in SG: OTT. That being said, his iron game is a little wishy washy with sub 63rd rank stats in SG/ARG/APP.
Kevin Streelman hasn’t missed the cut at this event in his last 3 appearances, even finishing in 7th here last year. I don’t expect a Top 10 this week, but I do think he finishes Top 30.
Kevin Na missed the cut here last year, but made it each of the two years prior. He has a 4th place finish in 2016 to rise an eyebrow of possibility. But he is Kevin Na, and I hate him.
Kodaira shows up here last year and is all “I got this” and takes down the entire event. The defending champion will make the cut this week, but don’t bet on a Top 20 finish. At $6400 though, you just need him to make the cut.
Bill Haas tied with Streelman for 7th here last year and missed the year prior. Since I’m writing him up, he is going to make the cut this week. I don’t think it will be another Top 10 though.
Luke freaking Donald. Look at that beautiful tournament history. This jerk gets 2nd place in 3 of 4 years and decides to take a dump on our dreams and bankrolls last year. However, I think last year was a fluke and am plugging away. I assume his ownership will be astronomical at $7200.
