Can’t win them all folks. My cash streak ends at three when it comes Draft Kings on the PGA Tour. We look to get back at it this week at the BMW Championship. The BMW Championship is truly crunch time on the PGA Tour. Those outside the top 30 on the points list will be desperately trying to crack the top 30 to qualify for the Tour Championship at East Lake in two weeks. Those who are lucky enough to be in the top 30 are trying to card a ton of birdies to crack the top five to guarantee themselves the ten million dollar prize to the Fed Ex Cup winner with a win at East Lake. Here’s my lineup:
Jason Day (11,600)
There is surprisingly a tiny bit of value in Jason Day this week. Rory Mcllroy is the most expensive player this week after a monster comeback at TPC Boston last week. I still love Jason Day and maintain the point that he will be the Fed Ex Cup Champion at the conclusion of the Tour Championship in two weeks. No reason to doubt the choice now. Choose the number one player in the world with confidence.
Adam Scott (10,200)
Adam Scott hasn’t missed a cut all season and has seven top ten’s, including a fourth place finish last week in Boston. Scott currently sits fifth in the Fed Ex standings, so Scott will be looking for a monster week to keep himself in the top 5 to ensure he’s the tour champion with a victory at East Lake.
Brendan Grace (7,400)
Grace has had a monster season on the PGA Tour, but has been in a bit of a funk of late. The funk has him sitting 37th in the Fed Ex standings, so there is work to be done for Grace if he wants to qualify for the Tour Championship. I expect to the Golf Gods to reward Grace with good fortune this week. It would be a real shame to see such a monster season not make the Tour Championship.
Zach Johnson (7,300)
Like Grace, Zach Johnson needs a monster week to qualify for the Tour Championship. Johnson needs to jump 25 guys to do so. I expect Johnson’s all-around game and the fact that he is no stranger to pressure golf to have him in the mix all weekend. Don’t be surprised if Zach Johnson gets his first win of the year at the BMW Championship.
Jason Dufner (6,900)
Jason Dufner has been good to us in week’s past, so we go back to the well one more time. To say that Dufner has been the model of consistency on tour this season would be an understatement. He posts 19/22 made cuts, four top ten’s, and one victory. Dufner sits 20th in the standing so look for him to solidify his position this weekend.
William McGirt (6,500)
As always we go bargain hunting for our last spot and I’m extremely confident William Mcgirt will out play his $6,500 dollar price tag. McGirt has the same amount of top ten’s as Adam Scott yet he costs nearly $4,000 less. Not bad value at all! Will McGirt win the BMW Championship? Probably not. But like our bargains in past weeks, expect him significantly outplay his price tag. Good luck!
