PGA DraftKings DFS picks for The 2021 Memorial Tournament, taking place June 3 to June 6 at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio
Welcome all and Happy Memorial Day! Most of you will be reading this after, so I hope you had a great one. I’m back with more PGA DraftKings DFS picks. This time it’s for the 2021 Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club. After shockingly picking both the winner and runner-up three weeks ago at Wells Fargo. I’ve been struggling a bit, it happens, let’s see if I can turn it around here.
Last year’s Memorial Tournament winner was John Rahm, Patrick Cantlay in 2019 and Bryson DeChambeau in 2018. Jason Dufner in 2017 and William McGirt in 2016.
I’ve gone back and forth with calling these “tournament picks” or just “picks”. It’s tough (for me at least) predicting ownership for top players. So I’m just going with some of my favorite picks from now on. I’ll mention if it’s a tourney flier or whatever else.
Alright, if anyone ever has any questions or comments, leave them below, or you can hit me up on Twitter. Now let’s do this!
The Memorial Tournament Top DraftKings Picks
Jordan Spieth (DK $11,300)
Speith’s ownership will likely be very high, and rightfully so. He’s been playing on another level for a while now. He just missed picking up his 2nd win (won at Valero) since May last week at Charles Schwab. Ended up finishing runner-up to Jason Kokrak, which was his seventh top 10 finish over his last ten events!
At The Memorial, he’s missed just one cut in his last seven trips. With five top 15’s over that time, including T7 in 2019 & T3 in 2015.
Patrick Cantlay ($9,500)
Cantlay is coming off a T23 at the PGA Championship, after missing four straight cuts (his only missed cuts this season). I’m thinking (or hoping) he’s back to normal and his ownership won’t be very high. He won here in 2019, also finished T4 in 2018.
Speith is a cash game must-start and safe tourney pick, while Cantlay is a bit of a risky tourney pick.
Billy Horschel ($8,100)
Horschel has made five straight cuts, with two top 25’s (PGA Championship & RBC Heritage). He also has three top 10s this season, including a runner-up at the WGC-Workday. He’s finished top 15 in four of his last seven trips here, including T13 last year and T9 in 2019.
Kevin Streelman ($7,500)
Streelman has finished top 26 in each of his last three events, including T8 at the PGA Championship. In 2019, he finished 4th at this event and T8 in 2016.
Notes & Stuff
Tony Finau is another I really like this week. He’s been inconsistent, missing 3 of his last 6 cuts with two top 10’s over that time. He has four top 15 finishes here in the last six years.
Some other players I like for cash games & tourneys: Rahm, DeChambeau, Schauffele, Oosthuizen, Bradley and Fitzpatrick.
More for just tourneys: Matsuyama, Niemann, Kuchar, Glover and a real long-shot with Hoge.
