DFS Picks for the 2020 Houston Open
The GPP lobby on DraftKings is already bursting with two separate milly makers for the Masters. One way to pad your account ahead of the action is to dive into this week’s tournaments.
If you’re stuck on who to ride and who to fade, perhaps this six-pack of Houston Open DFS picks helps you formulate an opinion.
Viktor Hovland – $9,800
A ball-striking savant who could be a bit overlooked this week, I recommend getting Hovland in your lineup. 14th or better in three of his last four starts, Viktor’s prowess of the tee should carry him a long way at Memorial Park Golf Course.
Hovland won just prior to the hiatus and has picked up right where he left off, posting nine top-25s since the restart.
Doc Redman – $8,800
I liked Doc Redman going into last week. Carrying the 54-hole lead into Sunday and ultimately finishing 4th certainly won’t change my feelings upon arriving in Space City.
Doc’s consistency from tee-to-green is highlighted by ranking 14th in par-4 scoring average, and his steady short game is evidenced by ranking 4th in bogey avoidance. A trio of top-4s among his last six starts hints that a breakthrough performance is looming.
Zach Johnson – $8,600
One of my Houston Open predictions emphasized as one of the best bets is to grab hold of Zach Johnson in the top-20 market. Go ahead and plug him in as one of your DFS picks for the Houston Open as well.
A late-season push to thrust ZJ into finishing 8th at the US Open, and back-to-back top-25s since Winged Foot confirm that the tide has been turned. 20th in SG: Putting, 15th in GIR, 69 or lower in six straight rounds.
James Hahn – $8,000
Why James Hahn is priced down at $8,000 is beyond me. All the dude has done during the 2020-21 PGA Tour season is land inside the top-10 in all three of his starts. And while we can’t use course history as a reliable factor this week, it’s safe to say we can trust a player ranked 5th in birdie average and 8th in SG: Total.
Not only is Hahn’s flat-stick starting to match up with his ball-striking, but his confidence has to be brewing given his recent game log. 68 or better in 9 of his 12 rounds, and get this:
The last time James shot over par in a round on the PGA Tour was on July 9th – the first round of the Workday Charity Open.
Lee Westwood – $7,800
+7000 to win the tournament was enough for me to take a flier on Lee Westwood. Hence Westy is cited as one of my four Houston Open sleepers. Frankly, I’d be even more keen on inserting Westy into GPP lineups on DraftKings considering his $7,800 price tag.

|BMW PGA Championship||T18|
|ISPS HANDA UK Championship||T17|
Now that Lee has seemingly found a putting stroke he can depend on, we should continually see his name pop up on the first two pages of leaderboards.
Tyler Duncan – $7,000
Tyler Duncan won’t be one of the Houston Open DFS picks you’ll hear lots of people touting – but that’s OK. Everything I’ve gathered from reading about the layout at this week’s venue – on top of being familiar with other Tom Doak designs – tells me accuracy off the tee and a trusty short game will be paramount to success.
Cue in the 2020 RSM Classic winner.
Duncan clocked in 4th in driving accuracy and 6th in scrambling last time out at the Zozo Championship (T28). Tyler also finished 28th the week prior at Shadow Creek.
My 2020 Houston Open DFS Lineup for GPPs
- Viktor Hovland $9,800
- Doc Redman $8,800
- Zach Johnson $8,600
- James Hahn $8,000
- Lee Westwood $7,800
- Tyler Duncan $7,000
There are my top DFS picks for the Houston Open. If you’re looking for H2H matchup picks to attack, those can be obtained here.
Doc Redman’s hot play is too tough to ignore, as is the recent form displayed by the likes of Zach Johnson, James Hahn, and Lee Westwood.
I like Tyler Duncan as an under-the-radar play, and oh yeah.
Viktor Hovland is my Houston Open pick to win.
