PGA DFS: RBC Canadian Open 2024

by IBT Media Staff

The RBC Canadian Open returns to Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Ancaster, Ontario, bringing a unique blend of challenge and opportunity for the players. Known for its tree-lined fairways and sloping greens, Hamilton provides a more forgiving layout than courses like last week’s Colonial Country Club. With several potentially drivable Par 4s and receptive greens, the stage is set for a week where distance and solid wedge play could be the keys to victory. As players gear up for this exciting event, PGA DFS enthusiasts should carefully analyze their picks to maximize their chances of success.

Here’s your comprehensive guide to navigating the DFS landscape for the RBC Canadian Open 2024.

Course Breakdown

  • Hamilton Golf and Country Club
  • Ancaster, Ontario, Canada
  • Par 70
  • 7,084 Yards
  • Bentgrass Fairways
  • Bentgrass Greens

Hamilton Golf and Country Club is a classic parkland course, with wider fairways and less-encroaching trees compared to tighter venues. The small, undulating greens demand precision with wedges and short irons, making approach shots crucial. The course’s design includes three to four Par 4s that could be drivable for longer hitters, adding a strategic element to the play.

Weather conditions are expected to be moist with rain and cool temperatures until Sunday. Winds will consistently range between 10-14 mph, making the greens more receptive and potentially slower. This should help players who excel in approach play and putting on Bentgrass surfaces.

Our projected winning score is -20, with a cut at -2. The last time the tournament was held here, Rory McIlroy dominated with a score of -22, highlighting the importance of distance and effective short-game play.

Stats to Build Around:

  • Driving Distance
  • Shots Gained Approach
  • Fairway In Regulation
  • Green In Regulation
  • Shots Gained Putting on Bentgrass
  • Approach From 100-125 Yards
  • Shots Gained on Par-4s
  • Birdie-or-Better Rate
  • Opportunities Gained

PGA DFS Strategy

Implement a bomb-and-gauge strategy this week. McIlroy’s overpowering performance in 2019 demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach. Focus on players who can drive long and excel with their short irons and wedges.
