Fantasy Impact: Streelman continued his excellent ball-striking at Muirfield Village. He finished ninth in strokes gained: off-the-tee, and was positive in both strokes gained: approach, and putting. He struggled around the greens all week, and could only muster up an even-par score on the final day.


Sam Ryder

Sam Ryder shot rounds of 70-72-66-69 to finish at 11-under par and tie for seventh at the Workday Charity Open.

Fantasy Impact: Ryder’s underlying stats looked excellent this week. He was third in strokes gained: off-the-tee, 15th in approach, and top 20 in putting and tee-to-green. Ryder could be a nice cheap option in DFS while the form is hot.


Russell Henley

Russell Henley shot rounds of 70-70-70-67 to finish at 11-under par at the Workday Charity Open. Henley finished in a seven-way tie for seventh place.

Fantasy Impact: Henley was striking the ball excellent the entire week, but couldn’t get much going with the putter. He finished fourth in strokes gained: tee-to-green, and 10th in strokes gained: approach. Henley will be a solid DFS option going forward.


Charley Hoffman

After nearly missing the cut with an opening round of 74, Charlie Hoffman fires finishing rounds of 68-68-67 to finish at 11-under and tie for seventh at the Workday Charity Open.

Fantasy Impact: Hoffman was coming into the event playing some very inconsistent golf. He has seven missed cuts in 16 events this season. This T7 showing was his highest finish 2020 and he will hope to carry the momentum going forward.


Jason Day

Jason Day fired a final round of five-under 67 to net a top-10 finish at the Workday Charity Open. Day finished at 11-under par for the week.

Fantasy Impact: Day was apart of the winning millionaire maker lineup this week on DraftKings. He was less than five percent owned and paid off big time. Day had a very solid all-around game going at Muirfield Village, gaining strokes in all five important metrics. Ride him while he’s hot.


Billy Horschel

Billy Horschel shot rounds of 72-69-70-66 to finish at 11-under and tie for seventh at the Workday Charity Open.

Fantasy Impact: Horschel was excellent with the putter all week, finishing sixth in strokes gained: putting. He put up a ninth place showing at Memorial in 2019, so he had some success at Muirfield Village coming in.


Patrick Cantlay

Patrick Cantlay shot up leaderboard on the final day of the Workday Charity Open, going seven-under par to finish at 11-under for the week and tie for seventh.

Fantasy Impact: The defending champion of the Memorial Tournament has had plenty of success at Muirfield Village. He didn’t have best best stuff until Sunday, but still managed a top-10 finish. He gained strokes in all five important strokes gained metrics, and will be a strong DFS play at Memorial next week.


Ian Poulter

Ian Poulter shot rounds of 68-69-69-70 to finish at 12-under and tie for fifth at the Workday Charity Open.

Fantasy Impact: Poulter played some pretty solid golf at Muirfield Village, but he was saved many times by his putter. Poulter finishes second in strokes gained: putting, gaining over eight strokes with the flat stick. Be cautious going back to Poulter in DFS.


Gary Woodland

After beginning his week with a one-over round of 73, Woodland battled back to go 13-under in his next three rounds to finish T5 at the Workday Charity Open. He finished at 12-under par for the week.

Fantasy Impact: Woodland rode a very hot putter this week at Muirfield Village. He finished second in strokes gained: putting, and seventh in strokes gained: off-the-tee. Woodland now has six top-10s in just 12 events in 2020.


Chase Seiffert

Chase Seiffert put up his highest PGA Tour finish ever at the Workday Charity Open. Seiffert shot rounds of 68-69-70-67 to finish at 14-under par and five strokes off the lead.

Fantasy Impact: The 28-year-old just joined the PGA Tour officially in 2020. He has made 10 cuts in 25 events and has three top-25s to his name. He currently ranks 68th in strokes gained: approach, and 33rd in strokes gained: putting. He will continue to be a strong low salary option in DFS going forward.


Viktor Hovland

Viktor Hovland continued his strong 2020 season with a third place showing at the Workday Charity Open. Hovland shot rounds of 69-67-66-71 to finish at 15-under par and four strokes off the lead.

Fantasy Impact: Hovland led the field in both strokes gained: off-the-tee, and tee-to-green, for the week. He ran into a cold putter on the final day and couldn’t get much going. The 22-year-old now has five straight top-25 performances.


Justin Thomas

Justin Thomas held a three stroke lead heading into the final five holes of the Workday Charity Open, but fell short, as Collin Morikawa forced a playoff and won the tournament. Thomas shot rounds of 68-66-66-69 to finish at 19-under par for the week.

Fantasy Impact: It was a disappointing result for Thomas, who played brilliant golf all week after missing a cut at the Travelers a couple weeks ago. Thomas finished second in strokes gained: tee-to-green, and fourth in strokes gained: approach, for the week. He didn’t have his best stuff on Sunday and it costed him the tournament. Thomas will be in the Memorial Tournament field next week.


Collin Morikawa

In his first career event at Muirfield Village, Collin Morikawa was victorious at the Workday Charity Open. Morikawa edged out Justin Thomas in a playoff to claim his second career PGA Tour title. He shot rounds of 65-66-72-66 to finish at 19-under for the week.

Fantasy Impact: A couple weeks removed from missing his first career cut in 22 events, Morikawa bounced back in a big way. He finished third in both strokes gained: approach, and strokes gained: tee-to-green, for the week. The 23-year-old moves up to number 29 in the official world golf ranking.


Troy Merritt

Troy Merritt shot rounds of 68-67-67-71 to finish at 15-under par at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. He took home $211,875.00 as he finished in a four-way tie for eighth place.

Fantasy Impact: Merritt finished top-10 in birdie-or-better percentage last year on Tour. He tends to thrive on easier courses that offer up plenty of birdie opportunities. Merritt was helped by a hot putter all week. He finished seventh in strokes gained: putting, on the week. He will make for an intriguing DFS play at Muirfield Village next week.


Webb Simpson

Webb Simpson continued his strong play this past week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Simpson got off to a very hot start in Detroit, shooting rounds of 68 and 64 to begin his week. He couldn’t get much going on the weekend however, as he only went three-under to finish the tournament. Simpson finished at 15-under par and fell into a four-way tie for eighth place.

Fantasy Impact: The 34-year-old already has two wins in 2020, and four top-10s in just eight events. He has elevated his game to another level over the past few seasons and is now a threat every week he tees off. Simpson is currently fourth in strokes gained: approach, and 15th in strokes gained: putting.


Sepp Straka

Sepp Straka shot rounds of 68-66-72-67 to finish at 15-under par and tie for eighth at the Rocket Mortgage Classic.

Fantasy Impact: The 27-year-old Austrian is one of the most streakiest golfers on Tour. He has had three top-10s to his name in 2020, but also has 13 missed cuts in 19 events. He is a very good ball striker, but his short game and putting is well below average. He will continue to be a high risk, high reward play in DFS.


Maverick McNealy

Maverick McNealy climbed the leaderboard on the final day of the Rocket Mortgage Classic thanks to a six-under par round of 66. McNealy finished at 15-under par for the week and eight strokes off the lead.

Fantasy Impact: The third year PGA Tour pro now has five top-25 performances in 17 events to begin 2020. He excels on shorter courses, evidenced by his T5 showing at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in February. McNealy finished third in strokes gained: putting, for the week.


Ryan Armour

Ryan Armour turned in another solid week at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit. Armour shot rounds of 69-64-67-72 to finish at 16-under par for the week.

Fantasy Impact: The 44-year-old now has back to back top-10 finishes. He has been a low salary gem on DFS lately and will look to carry the momentum going forward. Armour is a shorter hitter who is second on Tour in driving accuracy. He thrives on shorter courses which reward accuracy off the tee. Armour finished sixth in strokes gained: off-the-tee, and fifth in strokes gained: approach.


Tyrrell Hatton

Tyrell Hatton continued his excellent 2020 campaign at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Hatton shot rounds of 68-67-69-68 to finish at 16-under par and tie for fourth. This was Hatton’s fifth top-10 performance in just six events this season.

Fantasy Impact: Hatton is playing exceptional golf to begin his season. He currently leads the PGA in strokes gained: total, and is second in both strokes gained: approach, and putting. Hatton did most of his damage this week with a hot putter.


Adam Hadwin

Adam Hadwin turned in his third top-10 performance of 2020 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic in Detroit. Hadwin shot rounds of 67-69-69-67 to finish at 16-under par and tie for fourth.

Fantasy Impact: The Canadian had a great week all around. He gained strokes in all five important metrics and gave himself plenty of birdie opportunities. Continue to play him confidently in DFS.
