FanDuel PGA Value Plays: PGA Championship

Aug 9, 2017

Robert Streb has a solid track record at this event

The last major of the PGA Tour circuit is at Quail Hollow this week. The long 7,600 yard Quail Hollow hosts the PGA Championship. Quail Hollow has been a popular track on the PGA Tour schedule. This is one of Rory’s favorite courses and for good reason. The Northern Irishman has two wins, one second place, and three top 10s in seven appearances. A little too expensive for a value play, so here are the three guys you should keep your eye on this week.

Tyrrell Hatton: $6,200
Hatton has putted well in America this year. He has a 1.075 strokes gained putting on the PGA this season. He has had some good finishes earlier in the year as well, including a fourth place finish at The Honda Classic and Arnold Palmer Invitational. He has not been as successful later on in the year but has a good track record at the PGA Championship. Hatton has a 69.75 scoring average in his two appearances at the PGA Championship, including a 10th place finish. The Englishman should be geared up for a good week.

Robert Streb: $5,300
Streb loves this tournament. He boasts the best scoring average on tour at this event with a 68.63. Along with a great scoring average, he has a seventh place finish and a 10th place finish in the last two years. Streb has struggled this year but has been playing better as of late. A second place finish at the Greenbrier Classic is a step in the right direction. Strep missed the cut at The Open but has taken a break since then to get ready for his most successful major in his career.

Daniel Summerhays: $5,300
Summerhays and Streb are two super sleepers this week because their price is so low. Summerhays has shown he can compete. The biggest surprise was his 10th place finish at the Memorial Tournament. It would have been an even better finish if he didn’t shoot 78 in the last round after leading the three prior. He’s been arguably one of the most consistent surprises on Tour this year after four top 25s and 19 made cuts. Summerhays finished third last year at the last major of the year, so he should be in fine form this year at Baltustrol.
