I play quite a bit on DRAFT, and have always been a big fan of the snake draft format. On DRAFT, for PGA, you simply roster five golfers. They offer head-to-head, 3-man, 6-man and 8-man drafts that start upon filling. In the DRAFT lobby, you will find me in the six-man and eight-man contests, which payout to the top two spots.

My goal here will be to give you my targets in tiers, based upon their DRAFT projections. Followed by that, will be my top 40 overall rankings. The strategy of course here, is that 40 golfers will be drafted for 8-man contests, and these rankings will have you covered. After having completed my rankings for this week, let’s quickly look at last weeks WGC Bridgestone targets, and recap my picks before we move on to the targets.

Last Week:

As you can see from my tweet above, I was finally able to put it all together, and I cashed in six of eight entries. Fortunately, I never had higher than the third pick, and minimized my shares of McIlroy, while ending up with five shares of the eventual champion Brooks Koepka. Another player that carried my teams, and I had the most shares of was Zach Johnson. He just did exactly what he does every week and posted another top 20, finishing T-19th and finishing -7.

As far as my targets went, it was sort of a mixed bag again, as that will likely be the case most weeks. Like Baseball, so much of golf is mental, and if someone is mentally off of their game, it is highly unlikely they will be successful. Of course I did write up Koepka as a top target and he was  able to grab a victory. The other two high-projected targets kind of disappointed however. Tony Finau got off to rough start, but was able to bounce back and sneak inside the cut line. However, he never really got it going on the weekend, and finished T-42 at -3. The other was Dustin Johnson. While he did finish a respectable T-27 at -6, it was certainly a disappointment.

My mid-tier targets were Rory and ZJ. Safe to call that one a wash as well. I had high hopes for McIlroy, so that was disappointing of course. But I hit the nail on the head with Johnson, assuming he would just stay consistent and inside the top 20. Moving on to the low tier targets, both players Thorbjorn Olesen and Tommy Fleetwood made the cut, but neither were ever really in contention. Olesen finished at -1 in a tie for 56th, and Fleetwood finished T-35 at -4. Considering the size of field, it was a pretty successful weekend for myself, and hopefully for some of you. Let’s dive in to today’s targets and see if I can do it again!

Before we get to the targets though, one last thing I will add is that this article will no longer feature any info about the course or the event itself. I am currently writing a fanduel piece as well for this week, and any info you may need on past results of note and course history will be found here.
