DraftKings Outlaw Tour: TPC Champions Classic – Round 1 -DFS Core Plays & Cheat Sheet for the May 19, 2020 Slate
In this article, I’ll give you 3 core plays and a Cheat Sheet for your Round 1 showdown slate!
We saw some skins action televised on the weekend to wet the golf appetite, and for those of you looking to dive into a few showdown slates this week – The Outlaw Tour rolls on this week with the TPC Champions Classic, a 54 hole no cut event – which keeps the field deep for each of the three showdown slates that we’ll see this week. The 81 player field will tee it up at the TPC Scottsdale, playing at just over 7100 yards. We have 4 par 5’s and 5 par 3’s, so scoring on the par 5’s and being able to manage the par 3’s will be of paramount importance.
Let’s dive in and look at some of the best options on the board this week!
Nick Mason – $10,000
Mason finished a relatively disappointing T23 last week in the Scottsdale AZ Open, but I like the spot he’s in for a bounceback this week at the TPC Scottsdale. Mason checks in this week as one of the higher spends of the week, but he comes into this one in great form, with a plethora of top 10 and 20 finishes over the course of the Arizona/California events and has has finished in the top 5 with a T3 and a T5 in his two Outlaw Tour events so far this season. Look for Mason to do some damage on the par 5’s tomorrow – he ranks T9 on the Outlaw Tour for all golfers that have played at least 5 rounds with a 4.28 scoring average on P5’s in a small sample size. He’s a great option at this price point for the round 1 showdown slate.
Andrew Funk – $8,000
Funk has played a very busy schedule so far in 2020 across the various tournaments that we’ve seen in Arizona, teeing it up 10 times. He has finished in the top 10 four times, in the top 25 another four times, and is an excellent value play at this price point. He had a cup of coffee, playing a few tournaments in the 2019 Mackenzie Tour – but I like what I’ve seen from his rounds in Arizona over the course of the pandemic enough to make him a part of my GPP builds for Round 1.
Jake Staiano – $7,700
Staiano is one of my favourite dollar for dollar options this week. If he is priced in this range, there is a good chance I just lock and load him for the three days of action. He does a great job of scoring on Par 5’s (ranked 30th on tour with an average of 4.4) over a nice sample size of 11 tournaments. He has 5 top 10 finishes, another 3 top 25 finishes (in those 11 tournaments) – and is priced very reasonable.
