These expert fantasy golf playsÂ are your key to cashing big in your OHL Classic DFS contests!
Chris Stroud- $22,600
Stroud has played in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba each year since itâ€™s inaugural tournament back in 2007, and since missing the cut that season, heâ€™s made every other cut. Not only has he made cuts, but heâ€™s been locked in each of the last three years finishing in the top five of the event each year since 2011. His best finish came last season when he finished tied for third, turning in four rounds under 70 and finishing 16 strokes under par. In addition to his last three top five finishes in the OHL Classic, heâ€™s also got a tied-for-12th finish on his resume back in 2008. Stroud likes this course, and Vegas Insider has him tied with three other golfers as the third most likely to win the event with odds of 30/1.
Charles Howell III- $21,800
Joining Stroud in that mix of 30/1 favorites to win the OHL classic is Howell III. Heâ€™s played in the OHL Classic every year since 2009 and heâ€™s never finished worse than his tied-for-38th finish in his first event there. Heâ€™s finished 20th or better in each of his last four times at Mayakoba, including finishing tied for sixth last year. Heâ€™s played in four of the PGA Tourâ€™s Fall events, making all four cuts, and placing in the top 20 in two of them. Between his solid start to the season and track record of success at this event, he makes for a worthwhile large expenditure for your PGA DFS teams this week.
Hudson Swafford- $15,700
Swafford missed last yearâ€™s cut in his lone time playing in this event, and he missed last weekâ€™s cut in the Sanderson Farms Championship, but donâ€™t let that diminish his hot start to the 2015 season. He opened the year with an eighth place finish in the Frys.com Open and two more top 20 finishes in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and The McGladrey Classic respectively. Vegas Insider has his odds to win at 60/1.
Tony Finau- $17,200
Like Swafford, Finau got off to a fast start to the 2015 season before missing the cut in the Sanderson Farms Championship. Heâ€™s finished in the top 15 in each of his other three events played this year, including a top 10 finish (seventh) in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Priced for a bit more than Swafford, he does come with better betting odds at 50/1 to win.
Fabian Gomez- $12,300
Gomez has played OHL Classic at Mayakoba just one time, that coming back in 2011, and he made the cut and finished tied for 50th place. Not an eye popping result, but once again making the cut would allow him to tally points on the cheap for your PGA DFS squad. Furthermore, with odds of 70/1 to win the event, he doesnâ€™t have the longest of odds that one would expect for such a cheap option. The Argentinian has played in just two PGA Tour Fall events, but fared well in both finishing 14th last week in the Sanderson Farms Championship and finishing eighth a few weeks ago in The McGladrey Classic.
Justin Hicks- $9,800
When comparing salaries to Vegas Insider odds, one name popped out, and that was Hicks. At under $10,000 I was shocked to see his betting odds to win the event at 80/1. With three missed cuts and just a 61st place finish in his lone made cut this year, heâ€™ll be faded by many. Working in his favor, though, is two made cuts in two times playing in this event, including a tied for sixth place showing last year. Hicks is a sweet dice roll if youâ€™re looking to load up on some of the chalkier big ticket items.
