PGA DFS: The Players Championship 2024

Course Breakdown

  • TPC Sawgrass
  • Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida
  • Par 72
  • 7,275 yards
  • Bermuda fairways offer a wider-than-average target but demand accuracy to set up longer approach shots, with water hazards lurking on almost every hole.
  • Bermuda greens, notorious for their difficulty, pose a significant challenge to players, especially with longer approach shots.

The weather could be a deciding factor, with the wind playing a crucial role throughout the tournament. While Thursday and Saturday will see light winds, Friday and Sunday could witness gusts reaching up to the mid-20s mph. Mild temperatures and dry conditions are expected, but tee time splits could provide an advantage, especially for players adept at handling windy conditions.

The competition is expected to be fierce, with the projected winning score likely around -18. With a cut projected around +1 or +2, every shot will count as players vie for victory on one of golf’s grandest stages. Past champions, including Scottie Scheffler, Cameron Smith and Justin Thomas, underscore the tournament’s history of elite performances.

Stats to Build Around:

  • Shots Gained Off the Tee
  • Shots Gained Approach
  • Shots Gained Scrambling
  • Shots Gained Around the Green
  • Approach Shots from 175-200 Yards and Beyond
  • Shots Gained on Par 3s and Par 5s
  • Fairways in Regulation (FIR) and Greens in Regulation (GIR)

PGA DFS Strategy

With a larger player pool focused on current form, look for experienced players with a track record of success on challenging courses. Tee time splits could offer an edge, especially with varying wind conditions throughout the tournament.
