OVERVIEW
The European Tour is the premier DFS event this week as the PGA Tour hosts the team event at the Zurich and even though DraftKings leads us to believe they’re making things better they have yet to figure out how to score the event (even though it wouldn’t be much different than standard scoring, but I digress). This is the fourth installment of Trophee Hassan II at the Red Course at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam which is a tree-lined parkland course with undulating hills and is a tough test of golf. The course itself requires accuracy off the tee (due to the trees), as well as placing tee shots on the correct side to navigate the various doglegged holes. Water comes into play on four holes, and there are ample bunkers guarding the greens which also adds some challenges to approach shots to the raised/elevated greens. Once on the moderate paced poa greens, players will continue to be challenged which speaks to why scores are fairly high when the cut rolls around. The course is a strong test of golf overall and selecting players who have a strong all-around game is the preferred method this week. Unfortunately for us, the field is pretty weak in the grand scheme, so I would recommend going with more of a balanced approach with lineup construction this week unless you’re playing over 20 lineups. The gap between the best player in the field and the 30th isn’t significant enough to warrant a true stars & scrubs build, in my opinion.
