Top DFS Picks for the 2021 WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession
The Concession Golf Club is a big-boy golf course. If you think that means it shouldn’t be up Bryson DeChambeau’s alley, know that DeChambeau captured the individual title at the 2015 NCAA DI Championship at this very same venue.
And that was before he was flying the ball 340 and hitting 200-yard 8-irons.
Coming off of a missed cut at The Genesis, I think Bryson is a wonderful play for GPPs on DraftKings. I recommend doing whatever you can to squeeze the Mad Scientist into your lineup. If you can’t, here are six other DFS picks for the WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession worth consideration.
Viktor Hovland – $9,400
I can’t say enough good things about Viktor’s game. Coming off a bogey-free Sunday at Riviera that propelled him into the top-5, Hovland’s short game is slowly but surely catching up to his long game.
Ranking 1st in SG: Off-the-Tee last week shouldn’t have shocked anybody, but the fact that he led the field in scrambling is what really caught my attention. On top of the fact that he’s placed 6th or better in five of his last six starts.
Last year Viktor Hovland won in Puerto Rico to move to 60th in the world. He's now 14th. Last 6 worldwide starts:— Will Gray (@WillGrayGC) February 22, 2021
Daniel Berger – $9,300
Any doubts surrounding Daniel Berger’s ability to close were silenced after watching him play the final hole at Pebble. Needing to make something happen, Berger proceeded to thread the gap with a 3-wood and holed a 30-footer for eagle.
You want some more evidence portraying this dude’s moxie?
How about the fact that the last time he shot over par was at the US Open in September. Equipped with 26 straight rounds of par or better in counting, it’s time we start giving Daniel Berger his due.
Sungjae Im – $8,800
$8,800 might seem a tad pricey for Sungjae Im relative to this field – until you uncover this man’s track record in the state of Florida. He won the Honda Classic in 2020 and finished 3rd in each of the last two Arnold Palmer Invitationals.
Thanks to some diligent research by 15th Club’s Justin Ray, we know that 177 players have logged at least 20 PGA Tour rounds in the Sunshine State since 2017. And we know that Im is the lone player among that group to gain at least two strokes from tee-to-green per round.
Go ahead and pencil him in as one of your WGC-Workday Championship at The Concession DFS picks.
Louis Oosthuizen – $7,900
Here I’m double-dipping with one of my WGC -Workday Championship sleeper picks. And instead of clicking on Will Zalatoris, I suggest saving $100 bucks and pivoting to a much-less exposed Louis Oosthuizen.
One of the perennially great drivers of the golf ball, I highlighted his improved putting in the post linked above. Here’s where I’ll quickly expand on that notion.
Louis ranks 7th on the PGA Tour in putting from inside 10.” From the crucial range of 4-8’, Oosthuizen ranks 3rd. T6 in the last WGC event.
Sergio Garcia – $7,500
Advocating for guys who missed the cut the week before isn’t always my cup of tea, but remember, everybody is guaranteed four rounds at The Concession Golf Club. And while some guys don’t normally play well following a missed cut, Sergio Garcia doesn’t exactly fit that model.
Take his last two MCs, for example.
Sergio missed the cut at the Houston Open and finished 11th in his next start. He missed the cut at the US Open and won the very next time he teed it up at the Sanderson Farms Championship.
If that doesn’t make Garcia one of the more intriguing WGC DFS picks, what about the fact that he’s amassed 20 top-10s at WGC events?
Billy Horschel – $7,000
You’re inevitably going to have to shop around the cheaper options on DK in order to squeeze in a couple of the big guns. One of those cost-effective choices that’s perfect for GPPs is Billy Horschel.
Among his last 18 competitive rounds on tour, Billy has fired 66 or lower in half of those opportunities. It’s helped thrust him to a couple of top-7s during that stretch, and he’s no stranger to success on Bermuda greens.
Born, bred, and still residing in Florida, Horschel finished 9th in the 2020 WGC-Championship held in Mexico City.
My WGC-Workday Championship DFS Lineup for GPPs
- Viktor Hovland $9,400
- Daniel Berger $9,300
- Sungjae Im $8,800
- Louis Oosthuizen $7,900
- Sergio Garcia $7,500
- Billy Horschel $7,000
I’ll reiterate that Bryson DeChambeau is carrying a lot of merit in tournaments on DraftKings. He wasn’t pleased after missing the cut at Riviera and will be eager to right the ship at a course he’s already prospered at.
If his “boom or bust” potential is too extreme for your liking, try mixing and matching these DFS picks for the WGC at The Concession. If nothing else, studying these players will help you gain confidence as you prepare to start betting on golf this week.
