This week the PGA Tour heads to Akron OH at Firestone as the Bridgestone Invitational is moved up this year due to the Olympics. Tiger used to be the go-to pick here, but those days are long gone, and he will not even be able to tee it up this week. There are some other horses for courses out there that could be steady plays this week. And remember, there is no cut!
Justin Rose, Jim Furyk, Bubba Watson and Rory McIlroy all have had some past success here. And last year’s winner Shane Lowry, was in the final group in the US Open a few weeks ago. This course will allow some people to go under par, but there will be some high scores too, so the flier might end up finishing +14, so be careful going with a long-shot.
DraftKings PGA Recommendations
With no cut this week, there is a cluster of salaries in the 6500 – 8500 range. I would not try a long shot this week, as Firestone can be punishing.
Justin Rose – 5 top 5 finishes here. Book him. May not win, but very low risk.
Jim Furyk – Guy just books top 10 finishes here. He has TEN of them!
Danny Lee – A solid finish last year and his continued success makes me think he could win here.
B. Hun-an – Good value for a guy ranked in the top 30 in the world.
