2018 Sentry Tournament of Champions PGA DFS Cash Preview
We did it everyone, we did it! The PGA Tour is back and we’re getting right into it with the Sentry Tournament of Champions. All winners from last year kick off the season at Kapalau in Hawaii in a limited 32-man event. What does that mean for you, the DFS player? A no-cut, limited field means that you need to find points and find points often. I’ll take you through some viable cash options as we open up the season:
Russell Henley, 7800: Henley hasn’t played here since 2015 and that included a T3 showing, but had been playing well towards the end of last season with a third place finish at the Tour Championship. Henley sits fifth in SG Approach and tenth in DK points in his last eight rounds at Kapalau. Look for Henley to continue to build on last year.
Kevin Chappell, 7700: Chappell comes off a rough Hero, but that was due to a rough weekend. Chappie is a solid wind player and the weather has a normal wind speed of 15-20mph each day. The surprising number for me? In the last 12 rounds on Bermuda and easy hitting fairways (Kapalau has cow pastures for fairways), Chappell leads the field in SG T2G and is second in DK points.
Kevin Kisner, 8400: Only one showing from Kiz back in 2016 here at Kapalau, but a ninth place finish was something to talk about. Seems to be a Hawaii guy with a 4th and 5th at the Sony the last two seasons. He ranks 5th in SG total and fourth SG putting on Bermuda greens, a big differentiator. His stats are thrown off a bit from a rough final month in ’17, but a third place finish at the Tour Championship and a fourth at the RSM makes Kisner a nice guy to model your team around.
Pat Perez, 8000: The veteran is fresh off a win in the swing season and is always a guy to roster early in the season. He came in third last year at the TOC and is 5-for-6 in cuts made at the Sony Open. He ranks 2nd in proximity from 100-125 yards, a popular area that guys will be hitting second shots into massive greens this week.
We will work through the rest of the season with cash options and find them here at Sports Degenerates. With it being a limited, no-cut event, cash might not be your play this week, but come back for the bigger events to help build your 6-for-6 lineups.
