PGA DFS, Sony Open 2021: Optimal DraftKings, FanDuel daily Fantasy golf picks, advice

Cameron Smith heads to the 2021 Sony Open looking to defend his title starting on Thursday, but should the defending champion be included in your PGA DFS lineups this week? With a 2021 Sony Open field that features the likes of Webb Simpson, Collin Morikawa and Adam Scott, Smith will have his hands full if he wants to defend his title. Smith earned a runner-up finish at the Masters in November, but he enters the Sony Open 2021 ranked 112th in greens in regulation percentage (68.06).

Smith is listed at $9,600 on DraftKings and $10,700 on FanDuel, so rostering him means finding plenty of value elsewhere in the 2021 Sony Open PGA DFS player pool. Should Smith be part of your PGA DFS strategy, or should you look elsewhere when finalizing your PGA DFS picks? Before you enter any PGA DFS tournaments or cash games for the Sony Open 2021, you’ll want to see the top PGA DFS picks, advice and player pool from SportsLine’s Mike McClure.

McClure is a DFS pro with nearly $2 million in career winnings, and he’s been red-hot on his PGA Tour picks this season. McClure is also a predictive data engineer at SportsLine who uses a powerful prediction model that simulates every tournament 10,000 times, taking factors like statistical trends, past results and current form into account. This allows him to find the best PGA DFS values and create optimal lineups that he shares only over at SportsLine. They’re a must-see for any PGA DFS player.

In addition, McClure’s model is up over $13,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

In the final standard PGA event of 2020, McClure nailed Viktor Hovland’s win at +2500 in his best bets. That was one of many huge calls he made last year. After nailing Sergio Garcia (+5500) finishing on top of the leaderboard at the Sanderson Farms Championship, McClure finished up over $6,200 yet again on his best bets. The model had him in the top five from the start and McClure’s best bets included Garcia winning outright. Those who followed that advice saw a massive +5500 return.

He also finished profitable at the U.S. Open, nailing two of his best bets, including a +1100 top-five bet on Matthew Wolff. McClure hit a top-five bet (+1200) on Doc Redman at the Wyndham Championship, finishing up over $700 on his best bets. Those are just some of his recent big returns. In all, the advanced computer model has also nailed a whopping six majors entering the weekend.

Now, McClure has set his sights on this week’s event and revealed his optimal PGA DFS advice, strategy and player pool. Head to SportsLine now to see his top daily Fantasy golf picks for the 2021 Sony Open.

Top 2021 Sony Open PGA DFS picks

One of McClure’s top PGA DFS picks for the Sony Open 2021: Sergio Garcia at $8,300 on DraftKings and $10,000 on FanDuel.

Garcia is a long ball hitter who averages 310.2 yards per drive, which ranks 14th on the PGA Tour. Garcia’s ability to drive the ball deep into the fairway allows him to use his short irons to approach the green. That lethal combination has helped him hit over 70 percent of greens in regulation this season, which has resulted in 89 birdies in just 22 rounds. Garcia is a complete steal at this price point, so lock him in your PGA DFS lineups and look for a big return at Waialae Country Club.

McClure’s optimal PGA DFS strategy also includes rostering Brendon Todd at $8,200 on DraftKings and $9,800 on FanDuel.

Todd, who’s finished inside the top-15 in each of his last two starts on the PGA Tour, is an almost sure-fire bet to be near the top of the leaderboard come Sunday. The 35-year-old enters this week’s event ranked second in driving accuracy percentage (74.23). Todd’s ability to consistently find the fairway coupled with his strong iron play will result in more birdie opportunities and more chances to rack up points on sites like FanDuel and DraftKings. Lock him in your PGA DFS lineup and look for a big return this week at the Sony Open.
