Last week when I made my fantasy golf picks, I had mentioned I wanted to track my bankroll during the season and see what I win or lose during the 2015-2016 PGA Tour season.
I started with a $250 bankroll and will not spend more then 10% of my bankroll each week on lineups. My initial plans call for 1-2 different lineups spread through several different leagues. I’m still rolling with that plan as of now but could make changes to it later depending on how my averages are doing.
At the Frys.com Open last week, I selected one lineup and entered that one lineup into two different leagues; a $3 entry and a $12 league entry. This added up to only $15, which was well below my 10% threshold.
I ended up in the money in both leagues, pocketing a total of $42 from both, meaning my bankroll has swelled to an enormous $277. Again this week, I will not be spending more then 10% of my bankroll.
Brooks Koepka ($10,900)
Birdies, birdies, birdies. That’s the name of the game at TPC Summerlin this week. Koepka finished tied for fourth last year and fired a third round 64. He’s the second biggest money this week in Draft Kings behind Rickie Fowler. He will be the first of two $10,000 picks this week.
Ryan Moore ($10,000)
Played college golf at UNLV and calls Vegas home. These two things alone make me think Ryan Moore will have a good week. Moore also played well last week at Frys.com, finishing the week with a T-10. Moore will most likely be one of the highest owned players this week but I can’t let that stop me from picking him.
Graham Delaet ($7,900)
Graham Delaet finished the Frys.com Open last week with a final round 77, after firing three straight sub-par rounds in the first three days. He finished the week with a T-32 and I am hoping he can string together four good rounds this week in Vegas.
Hudson Swafford ($7,400)
Swafford finished T-17 last week at the Frys.com Open and put up great points in Draft Kings fantasy golf. He finished in the top 20 here at TPC Summerlin last year and I will be looking for Swafford to make the cut and string together four solid rounds of golf.
Jamie Lovemark ($7,000)
At $7,000, I feel Lovemark is my best option to go along with my two high dollar picks above. Lovemark finished last week with a T-48 and will be one of the lowest owned players this week in Vegas. If he can put together four solid rounds, I feel he might be the player to get me some solid points on the board.
Ollie Schniederjans ($6,800)
I am riding Schniederjans again this week as I need some good value after two $10K picks above. Ollie finished last week T-48 and picked up 64.5 points for me last week. I need him to have another decent finish this week and at least make the cut. If he does that, I’ll be happy. It’ll be his first start at TPC Summerlin.
