Wells Fargo Picks Review
Paul Casey (74.5 points)
Zach Johnson (69.5 points)
Alex Noren (61 points)
Another week making money with all three plays making the cut including the other three golfers in my lineup. Despite a few bad holes scattered throughout, Casey played solid the entire week, especially firing 68 on Sunday. ZJ was back to normal ZJ last week, which is exactly what I expected. Noren with a disappointing 77 on Sunday ruined an amazing week from a value pick, however all in all worth the value. Even though DJ, my fade last week, finished T-2 he did show some rust in the first two rounds barely making the cut, but by the weekend he was firing on all cylinders.
THE PLAYERS Picks
Obvious Pick of the Week:
Jason Day ($10,000): Defending Champion
Day has had a pretty underwhelming season (for his standards) thus far, and rightfully so while his mother has been battling cancer. With recent good news on his mother’s prognosis, and The PLAYERS Championship Sunday falling on Mother’s Day I believe Day keeps those good vibes going. Also, taking Day at $10,000 gives you the ability to get another Top Tier player (See Team Below).
Gut Guy of the Week:
Jason Dufner ($7,800)
That gut speaks for itself. Duf Daddy has played great golf this year making 8/9 cuts, while finishing in the top 25 in all of those made cuts. Look for Dufner to let that gut hang all weekend and be towards the top of the leaderboard come Sunday.
Value Pick of the Week:
Adam Hadwin ($6,800)
As the first two time Value Pick of the Week, it is fitting that Hadwin has still not missed a cut this season (10/10). The greens at Sawgrass are some of the most difficult on Tour, especially this season with new TifEagle Bermudagrass, but fortunately for Hadwin he is pretty damn good in that category ranking 11th in Putting Average this season. Even with such a strong field I believe Hadwin is a little underpriced for making 10/10 cuts and already a winner this year, so I think he is a great play this week.
**Ryan Moore also good value at $7,000**
Fade of the Week:
Jon Rahm ($9,600)
There is no denying Rahm is a beast and has the game to compete this week at Sawgrass. However, I think everyone and their mother is going to take him, especially being he is relatively cheap for his recent form. For the shear fact that I believe he will be over 30% owned combined with him competing in his first PLAYERS Championship, I am fading Rahm, and the general public this week.
