Featuring in-depth analysis of TPC Craig Ranch! Daily fantasy golf analysis for this week’s DFS PGA course to help you figure out what stats to look for and the best way to approach this week’s course!
This week, the players tee it up at TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, Texas. The course made it’s debut on Tour last season – so there isn’t too much course history here to factor in. KH Lee looks to try and defend his title here this week in what should be a pretty solid event from a field perspective with about half of the top players in the world teeing it up here.
As for the track itself, it checks in at 7468 yards and is a Par 72 with plenty of scoring opportunities and has Bentgrass greens (so for those of you looking at putters in your stats, make sure to filter by that). While there is some length here, given the fact that it is a Par 72 – it should be a course that the players can go low on, as evidenced by the field last year which scored quite well. There are 4 Par 5’s, 4 Par 3’s and 10 Par 4’s that make up the holes here.
As is the case with any course that has (some) length, I’ll be looking for ball strikers here, probably in this order:
- SG (APP)
- SG (TTG)
- SG (OTT)
You’ll need to find players that can score here – partly due to the fact that players can go low at TPC Craig Ranch, and partly due to the quality of the field with the likes of Scheffler, JT and Xander in the field. If you are looking for narrative street, the Texans that are teeing it up here seem to all be familiar with Craig Ranch, with Will Zalatoris saying that he has played it hundreds of times while Ryan Palmer said he has the course record there. Scheffler and Spieth would be a couple others to consider if you like that theme when it comes to building out your models and line-ups.
All in all, we should be set for a fun week of action – and hopefully you enjoyed our course breakdown, something that we will be doing the rest of the PGA season in addition to The Primer and The PGA Cheat Sheet – both of which will be released by Wednesday!
