DFS Fantasy Golf Picks: 2017 Valero Texas Open

Congratulations to Wesley Bryan on his first ever PGA Tour win last week at the RBC Heritage, in his home state of South Carolina. As we closed out on a great week of golf, here comes another chance for a player like Wesley Bryan to break from their shell and earn themselves their first PGA Tour win. This week bring us to the Valero Texas Open at the AT&T Oaks Course in San Antonio, Texas.

Last year’s winner Charley Hoffman defeated Patrick Reed in the final round by one stroke, with the final leaderboard reading: Hoffman (-12) and Reed (-11). However, if Hoffman pulls anything similar to that god awful performance he put on during the Masters after shooting an opening round (-7), forget about putting the choke artist on your roster this week.

Here are our Valero Texas Open DFS picks:

Top Picks

Matt Kuchar ($11,500)

Kuchar has been playing solid golf lately when it comes to making cuts and the always important top-10 finishes — he has three top-10 finishes along with 7/9 cuts made. The man has a great overall game that should suit him well at this course. Let’s not forget that this American hero also brought us home a bronze medal in the 2016 Olympics.

Ryan Moore ($10,200)

The underdog Ryan Moore has made 6/7 cuts this year, along with two top-10 finishes. His performance at this year’s masters was what truly caught my eye and have had him on my radar since. If he brings his A game, he’s a good look going in to this week.

High Value Sleepers

Patrick Reed ($9,700)

Despite finishing 2nd in last years Valero Texas Open, Patrick Reed has yet to show his true talents. With 9/11 cuts made this year (two of them being top-10 finishes), he hasn’t really given me reason to jump on his bandwagon. But for this price, it makes me want to take the risk this week. He always has a solid gameplay, he’s just yet to show us what he truly is capable of.

Luke Donald ($8,700)

T-13th in last years Valero Texas Open — along with finishing in 2nd in last week’s RBC Heritage — Luke Donald is the guy who’s my “no brainer” this week. With 5/7 cuts made this year, and playing the way he has been lately, you’d be a moron if you don’t add him to your roster.

Sleepers You Won’t Want To Sleep On

Ollie Schniederjans ($8,200)

T3 finishing 11-under in last weeks RBC Heritage, Schniederjans shot 68-68-69-68 to get him to the final round. Ollie has been on a roll with 3 top-10 finishes on the year, to go with 8/10 cuts made. The kid has the hot hand right now, so catch it before it turns to ice.

Harold Varner III ($7,800)

Varner has only finished in the top-ten once out of his 12 appearances this year, but he’s consistently made the cut (7/10). What makes me want to go out on a limb with Varner, is his T9 in last year’s tournament. If he can play the way he did last year, he offers high upside for a low cost — which could be the difference between finishing in the red or the green.

With that being said good luck this week, and be sure to check back next week for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans picks!
