OVERVIEW

First off I’d like to welcome back all returning subscribers and give an official welcome to any new ones. If you’re new here, this is a preview section where I give my first look analysis on the field, suggesting cash & GPP plays and at times a suggestion on where I plan to be with my own market share of certain players. If you’re new, I strongly recommend checking out all of the tools we have to offer on the site including – the PGA & EURO models, lineup builders, rolling stats, and player database. The First Tee (Adam Daly-Frey does a great job with this article every week where he targets specific analytical plays based on course setup and targeted skill sets), the Daily Spin (written by Zach where he hits on core players to target for all contest types and provides suggested ownership exposures for a key group of players) and The Hardcore Core (written by Jeff, a list of core players to build your lineups around primarily for GPP contests), and if you play on FanDuel, I’d also make it a point to check out Erik Dantoft’s weekly article for that site as well. Fantasy Golf Insider brings you the most comprehensive tools and articles to make you a better PGA DFS player so it’s important to make sure you’re utilizing the subscription to its fullest potential.

We begin 2019 with the Tournament of Champions in beautiful Maui, Hawaii where the Bermuda rough is cut as short as possible and the birdies will be abundant. This week there’s no cut as this is a tournament comprised solely of players who won events last year and basically a free getaway to start the year. I’d temper back your excitement in throwing a ton of money into cash games and focus primarily on building GPP lineups. You can still play cash games, but the edge isn’t there this week unless you’re hitting the nuts on all six of your players. If you do play cash games, I’d recommend scaling back this week. I know the first week back to golf has us all excited, but we need to practice sound bankroll management if we’re going to win long term, and ideally that should be everyone’s goal. If you’re just looking to burn through your NFL winnings or are looking to diminish any tax implications from being on team profits this season feel free to throw caution to the wind. I’m more than likely going to fire a few GPP lineups and turn my attention to the Sony next week.
