While DraftKings won't be holding contests for the WGC-Match Play this week, all you DFS fiends are going to have to get your PGA fix with the Puerto Rico Open. In other words, get ready to bet on one of the weakest fields of the year. With the majority of the world's top players in Austin for the match play, the field in Puerto Rico features a whopping six players--Wesley Bryan, Fabrizio Zanotti, Thorbjorn Olesen, Graeme McDowell, Chris Kirk and Danny Lee--who are ranked inside the Top 100.
Before we dive into Puerto Rico, a quick look back at last week's picks for the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The results were...middling. At best. Rickie Fowler gave us our only Top-12 finish, while Jason Day's miserable 75 on Saturday resulted in a mere T23. Charles Howell III and Wesley Bryan made the cut with not much else, while the decision to go with Thomas Pieters (missed cut) over Top-10 machine Tyrrell Hatton was a disastrous one.
Now, back to Puerto Rico. The 7,514-yard Par-72 at Coco Beach Golf & Country Club is a relatively easy course, but there is some variance (Scott Brown and Chesson Hadley were at 20- and 21-under in 2013 and '14, while Alex Cejka won at seven-under in 2015), and with all the inconsistency scattered throughout this field, it's likely to be a highly unpredictable weekend. Nevertheless, DFS PGA is DFS PGA, and this is all we've got this week.
