Featuring in-depth analysis of the Colonial Country Club! 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!
Fresh off of last week’s PGA Championship that was brought home by JT, the players head to the Colonial Country Club to tee it up for the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge. The course checks in at just over 7200 yards, and as was the case a week ago for last week’s major, is a Par 70 track with only two Par 5’s. As a result, we will be looking for players that can do damage on Par 4’s in bulk, as that will be a prime factor in terms of navigating the course this week. All in all there are a lot of similarities between Southern Hills and Colonial CC – but this week’s event should play easier than a week ago due to the fact that it is shorter in length.
As the course is shorter in nature, I really don’t think that you’ll need to find bombers here who gain strokes off the tee – but saying that, of course it doesn’t hurt to be able to pick strokes up on the field in that facet of the game. Instead, precision and accuracy will be paramount here with my primary metrics to be:
- SG (APP)
- Driving Accuracy
- SG (ATG)
The greens here are bentgrass, so if you are running putting metrics as part of your evaluation, make sure to filter out for SG: Putting (Bentgrass).
As for the course history here, you’ll notice a lot of repeat contenders here. Jordan Spieth has a great track record here, while the likes of Jason Kokrak, Kevin Na, and Justin Rose have all had multiple top 5 finishes in recent memory, while Daniel Berger and Kevin Kisner have also won here somewhat recently. All in all, when it comes to choosing golfers, I like the idea of blending course history with recent form and the above metrics.
I’m really looking forward to seeing how this week goes, and I’ll be releasing the Cheat Sheet later on Tuesday, with the Primer coming out on Wednesday for robust coverage of the 2022 Charles Schwab Challenge!
