FanDuel PGA Value Plays: RBC Canadian Open

Jul 26, 2017

Ricky Barnes has a phenomenal scoring average at RBC

The PGA Tour goes north this week as the players find themselves at Glen Abbey in Oakville, Ontario for the third time in four years. Glen Abbey is a 7,252-yard par 72 that players tend to go quite low on. Last year’s winner was Jhonattan Vegas at -12 with a final round 64. The par 5s are where players will make up ground, but keeping it in the fairway on all holes will be a must. Long hitters and short hitters have found success at this course, so time will tell which type of player will take the victory this week.

William McGirt $7,200
The Wofford graduate has found success at this event in the past. McGirt has two second place finishes but has not found himself inside the Top 25 in two years. McGirt has struggled this season, but this is the perfect event for him to bounce back. McGirt is ninth in driving accuracy which will help him keep his game under control and make birdies at Glen Abbey. He missed the cut at The British Open but made his last three cuts before that. Have faith in McGirt this week.

Chris Kirk $6,100
Kirk always seems to start playing well around this time of the year. The 32-year-old has never finished outside the Top 25 in this event. Believe it or not, Kirk possesses the best scoring average at this event on Tour, at 68.92. He has struggled this year, but making the cut at the John Deere Classic and taking last week off will give him a boost at Glen Abbey. Kirk is boom or bust this week.

Ricky Barnes $5,600
My favorite pick, as well as my super sleeper, this week is Ricky Barnes. At only $5,600 he is a steal. Barnes shot -10 at the Canadian Open last year, finishing T-5. Barnes also boasts a phenomenal scoring average at this event, at 69.45. A T-15 finish at The Barbasol Championship last week will give Ricky the confidence to play well this week. If Barnes’ putter gets hot, he will find himself making a lot of birdies and in contention.
