Daily Fantasy Golf Picks: Charles Schwab Challenge
Sungjae Im ($9,300)
Before the forced hiatus, there wasn’t a more in-form golfer on the planet than Sungjae Im. Im leads the Fedex Cup rankings, has had five top-10 finishes in 2020 and got his breakthrough win in impressive fashion at the Honda Classic. There’s no reason to think that good form won’t continue, and you’d be foolish not to include the Korean this week as he leads the Tour in total birdies.
Scottie Scheffler ($8,400)
Scottie Scheffler took the Korn Ferry Tour by storm last year, with two wins and the coveted Player Of The Year title and unsurprisingly, it hasn’t taken him long to get to grips with the PGA Tour. Although yet to win in 2020, he’s had three top-five finishes, ranks third in total eagles and fifth in total birdies. This 23 year-old is a must in any DFS lineup this week.
Jon Rahm ($11,000)
There aren’t many stronger golfers in the game than Jon Rahm and the World Number Two should be on the shortlist this week. The Spaniard has had two top five finishes at Colonial in just three starts so we know the course suits him well and he’s bound to be in the thick of it come Sunday afternoon.
Max Homa ($7,500)
Homa presents good value at just $7,500 if he can come back from the break in the same form in which he entered. Homa has finished top 10 in three of his last five appearances, including a T-5 showing at The Genesis Invitational in February. His last time out at Colonial, in to 2019 Charles Schwab Challenege, he finished 27th overall, putting up 68s in both Round 2 and Sunday’s final round. He could easily go low and make a run at the top 10 this weekend.
Kevin Na ($7,600)
Is it a little bit predictable to take last year’s Charles Schwab Challenge winner? Maybe, but Na is another bargain at $7,600. Not only did he win last year’s event, but he finished fourth in the 2018 Fort Worth Invitational at Colonial CC. He also already has a win on the season, coming in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in October of 2019.
Ryan Palmer ($7,400)
Palmer lives in the Fort Worth area and is a member at Colonial, meaning no player will be as familiar with the course as he. Last season, he finished sixth in this event and he has three top-five finishes at Colonial in his career. He’s 25th on the Tour in Birdie Average and 26th in Scoring Average. He also has two top-10 finishes to his name this season.
